And your post is unclear whether your DW has been doing the same.

She hasn't been maxing it out, as her income is lower it'd be a pretty big bite, but she has been contributing since she started working 6.5 years ago and has raised it several times. And she also has fully funded an IRA.

To clarify, I'm not so concerned with what might some others on here, my reference to Fool-kind was more meant to ask if doing this would be Foolish or foolish. Would I get a bunch of responses telling me I should cancel tv, learn to lay my own patio, and start riding a bike to work (20 miles, heh)? Or would I get what I got, which is people generally telling me I'm in good shape and it's okay to modify priorities in life sometimes so long as you don't drop the ball.

I greatly appreciate all your thoughts.
