What other assets do you have outside the 401(k)?

Essentially, none. Well, that's a lie. I have a home ($150,000) on which I owe ~68,000 and a rental property ($55,000) on which I owe ~30,000. Other than that... nada.

I'm working on an e-fund (I just got Foolish in Feb.) and getting rid of the $3200 in CC debt.

How comfortable are you with looking at your statement and relizing your assets just dropped 30% over the past month?

Heh. Happened last year (ok, a 19% drop, not 30%, but still...) and I didn't change anything. I figure I'll be ok with losses until I'm into my late forties, then I'll probably re-think that position. :)

Thanks,
B
