Do you file a schedule C each year? If you do and you do not receive a W2 from an employer, and you don't have any employees that work for you over 1000 hours per year, you and your spouse my set up a solo-401(k). The above link is general in its description of how a solo-401(k) plan is set up, as there are more details in how maximum contribution amounts are calculated, start up costs, annual required reporting after the account value reaches $250,000, and so forth.

For a more detailed description of a SEP or SIMPLE IRA, take a look at IRS Publication 560, at

www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p560.pdf

It has all the details you'll require for setting up either of these two plans.
