Save the 2000/year you spend on 50 pairs of shoes and 50 color coordinated outfits and put that money into an IRA.

Hey dirtflop,

I agree that $2,000 would be better spent on an IRA. However, if you were to equally allocate the $2,000 to 50 pairs of shoes and 50 outfits, that translates to only $20 per item. My wife tells me that $20 for a color coordinated outfit may be the cause of the marriage gone bad that you refer to.
