I am trying to figure out the best ways to save for me and my wife.

She has a 401k with about $30,000 and her employer forces her to be in 1 or 2 out 6 Fidelity funds. She has 50:50 into Spartan equity index and Blue Chip. My employer makes me use a Defined contrubution plan (401a) of which I have 100% in to Fidelity Contrafund.


1. Can we sock even more away in IRA's/Roth/ or a 403b?

2. If I put more away, how can i control it instead of just being in these funds? ie. self0directed IRA.

I expect the answers will generate even more questions.
