Hey,

I don't contribute to the Traditional IRA. I only have it because I worked at a grocery store and at the local park. It provided me with 2 measily retirement accounts that totaled $713. I rolled them into the Traditional IRA and 2.5 years later it's worth $3,000!

I don't contribute to the Traditional one, because in my eyes, a Roth is better.
