Greetings Fools,

First some background in case you haven't all seen it in other posts.

1) As far as I know, I make too much for Roth IRA's (110 base wtih 25k bonus)

2) I switched jobs mid-year so I don't have a solid idea of exactly what I will take in, rough estimates put me at 123,500 gross for the year (including bonus)

3) I own a home (less than 5 years) - not sure on the interest per year

Not 100% sure what else matters, but I'm fine with sharing it.

What I plan to do is save my yearly bonuses over the next 3-5 years as a down payment for a new home (likely rent the existing home). Where should that money go to make it most useful. If you suggest CD's, please give me an idea of where I can go to understand them a bit better.
