No. of Recommendations: 0
I'm working on my allocations too. A person at Fidelity recommended this mix for us:

85% stocks
50% large cap
20% mid and small cap
15% international

15% bonds
10% investment grade
5% high-yield

Seems to me you might want to choose between the "total market index" and the "s&p/mid-cap/small-cap mix" as I think they are accomplishing the same thing.
