In addition to the original question I posted, I'd like to know what you advise me to invest in. I know we should max out our Roth IRA's. I also have figured out a good budget for us to pay off our loans in a 10 yr period, so that is also covered. Any advice if I have an additional $100/month or so to invest?

Well, I don't think anyone will be too keen on giving you advice as to what to invest in...that has to be your decision.

With $100/mo. you can open an account with Buy&Hold and either put the money into individual stock(s) or index shares. If you have the minimum investment available, you could also open an index fund and put the money in there. (Most index funds have fairly high minimum investments, though--Vanguard's is $3000. The other alternative is to invest in index shares like SPY, QQQ, or DIA through a brokerage such as Buy&Hold...)
