how do I go about saving enough money for my golden years. Right now I am only 22 and was wondering if you might have a plan or some kind of list. I could get some ideas from. I feel that this is a great time for me to start. I am wanting to get into the stock market, but don't really know where to start.

natybanker, if you want to take control of your financial future, yer at the right place. This is truly a great time to begin. But ,in order to do this, you must learn, both about investing and about yourself. You need to find out what type of investor you are, and what investments will fit your situation in life, risk tolerance, financial resources (and on and on).
