DW and I have all our 401K money in S&P 500 funds. Additionally we have some taxable money in the S&P 500 and VGSIX (REIT fund). The e-fund is all in I-bonds. And then the stock portfolio is three REITs and six equities all about equal weight. The percentages are roughly 60% S&P, 10% equities, 20% REITs and 10% I-bonds.

It's simple and it works. We DCA in the S&P and buy and sell stocks based on the market. Additionally, we've got a bunch in home equity, but we're not supposed to count that so I don't. But it's probably 30% vs the rest if it were thrown in.

We could be FI outside of NYC tomorrow. Here we're just middle class wage slaves. But for how long?
