Are there any good strategies for investing in monthly increments in an IRA? I don't want to pay Ameritrade a commision every month, but I don't want my money just sitting in there doing nothing until it's a big enough "lump" either.

Throw it into an index fund, preferably Vanguard if you've got enough $$. That way, you don't have to pay a commission every time you invest.
