We are relatively debt free...

Personally, I'm no fan of debt, regardless of the tax write-off. "Relatively" implies a debt. So here is my list which works no matter age, place, or status, IMHO.

#1 - pay off debt

#2 - emergency fund of 6 months living expenses

#3 - retirement accounts (401k to company match & IRA)

#4 - other investments
