Wow, did not realize some of the info I mentioned (or failed to mention) would come out the way that it did! :)- I am married, with two children. I am the only source of income as my wife is a home maker. We do quite well at tax time given the children, one income, mortgage interest & student loan interest.- I own two vehicles. One is completely paid for (mine) and worth about 3K. It's an older Toyota SUV. The wife has a 2002 Forester that was bought brand new (Mistake #12344523, but hey, I live and learn) and still has about $12K left on the loan. The value of the vehicle is about 12K as well. We're just about on year 3 (of 5) on the loan, and the rate is 3.9% fixed.- No credit card debt. I went from having about 45K in credit card debt a few years ago to none at all as of a few months ago. It was a long, hard-fought few years. I use the cards from time to time to make certain purchases, but pay back before interest accrues, etc.- I am in software development for a living. I'm at the senior architect level these days, and management is probably around the corner for me in a few more years. I work in the financial sector.- Right now the 10k is my emergency fund. It's sitting in a money market savings account. I also am owed a few thousand by a family member that needed help with a down payment for a first home (which he is good on), due and end of year bonus and should be getting between 5k and 7k back in a tax refund this spring.- I have a home equity line of about 15k available.- The student loan rates are very very low, I think 4.5% or something (plus tax deduction on loan interest)- My company DOES NOT offer a match on the 401k. They instead contribute 15% of your gross annual income into the "employee fund", which has solid returns. I wont see any of this until January 2006, and even then, only 20% is vested per year.- I can change my 401k distribution anytime, but I have to elect how much of my paycheck I want to put into 401k within the next month or so.Thanks!
