Unfortunately, efforts to preserve principal as much as possible, tend towards securities that are virtually guaranteed to loose out to inflation (CD's, MM's and Short term Treasuries). Also, with interest rates at near historic lows, fixed income instruments such as Bonds should come with warning labels.So, I'd recommend mostly dividend paying large value stocks and put what ever you won't need over the next 2 years into any of the following funds:Vanguard Dividend Growth VDIGXVanguard Wellington VWENXTRowe Equity Income PRFDXAmerican Funds 529F CMLFXor if you're a Warren Buffet fan like I am; Vanguard Dividend Appreciation VIG.
