First of all, good work FIgirl to get into the "hundredthousandaire" club. <thumbs up> It was less than a year ago when my 401K hit the 100k mark. I was so happy I made a print out of the balance just for giggles. My next goal, which I hope to hit before the end of 2007, is for the sum of my retirement and taxable accounts to hit the "quartermillionaire" club. :)As for Vanguard, I must be mistaken because I visited their site a few months ago because I was interested in opening an account with them. I was looking at the total stock market fund and I thought the details were something like a minimum 2k to start and a low yearly account maintenance fee. Am I talking about something different than everyone else?I also have a Scottrade taxable account where I could purchase the same fund, but Scottrade charges a $30 transaction fee every time I purchase shares of it plus Vanguard takes their yearly fee. This was making me think it was fiscally prudent to deal straight with Vanguard. Am I wrong with this thinking?
