Will children or Uncle Sugar provide for you, or will you starve?

None of the above. And my children have been the recipients of a 1-1 match for their Roth contributions since they began working. I have put them on notice that this year I won't be able to tell them whether or not I can match and at what level until later in the year because of changing circumstances.

Saving enough is not the same as save as much as possible. "Save as much as possible" is also an indication to me of a lack of planning. If you don't know where you are going, how will you know when you get there ?

But overall, you really need to find a better target than me. If you really need it, I can show you my income plan for years to come. You might also want to look at my posts since last September.
