Congratulations on your raise, Diana! Great news!Very Foolish of you to put that extra money away toward retirement...though, I need to ask. All the debts are paid? I'm asking because that'd be the priority for me, and then I'd attack the retirement.Tony...but I still am...Off2Aruba Tony,Nope, all the debts aren't paid. I have just under 19K of (fairly low interest) debt to pay off.I decided to bump up my 401k with the raise as a sort of painless way to save more into my retirement. This action will not appreciably decrease the money I have available to snowball my debt with, but by doing stuff like this I will make it easier to max out the 401k in the long run. It would be quite a shock to go from putting 6% in my 401k to putting almost 20% in there (which is what it would take to max it out). I also am planning to up my 401k in the future when I hit little milestones. When I get 1/3 of the debt paid off (am at 17K) I am planning to bumpt it up by 1%, and when I get 2/3 paid off I'll bump it another 1%. d
