Make a life plan of what you want. Tax efficient funds can often serve as a good investment in a taxable account. An S&p 500 or total stock market with a divident reinvestment plan as PART of your life plan.

I don't know how much you make, but if you have that much in your IRA and 401K it's a good bet you make a healthy living. I'd keep putting in the 401k money and try and live a little more economically to build up an early retirement fund. Especially if your company matches your 401K, it would be silly to give up "free money."

Figure out how much you want at 45 and use the handy calculators here on the Fool and see how much you have to save to get there.

Wander over to the Index Fund board. Some sharp people there and a great faq.
