thanks for the suggestions about getting out of debt and about tax deferred and tax free bonds.

We're 100 K in debt mostly from student loans but there is a bit of credit card debt in there (we're quickly whittling that away and it will be GONE by 2001) and some car debt in there (we are doing two leases and I know NOW that we should have BOUGHT used cars for cash--- we'll start saving now for when the leases are up). All of our debt should be gone by 2008. Since we're young we're not feeling TOO terribly suffocated--- we know that halfway through our 30's we'll be debt free (other than a mortgage perhaps- we're renters now), already saving for retirement (since we're starting now, and saving plenty outside of retirement funds. These boards here really help!
