<<I had a 401k going earlier, but I ran into unemployment for a while, and wound up living on those savings. The next job I found didn't offer benefits of any kind, and neither did the one after that. I can't help but wonder if this is a spreading trend, or if THIS motley fool is missing the jackpot.
You can do IRAs if you like.
But I'm not especially convinced that the 401K is all that great a deal, since you don't get the advantage of cheap capital gains tax rates.
I therefore consider regular taxable accounts nearly as good.
The main thing is to keeping saving & investing.
