  1. Love the advice on maxing out your pre-tax retirement contributions…doing that alone can save you thousands of dollars come tax time. When I tell people that, usually they either give me a blank stare or look at me like I’m proposing some money laundering scheme.

    Also, you’d be amazed at how many people think the upper limit on their 401K contributions is their EMPLOYER MATCH % and not $18,000!!!

    1. Hey Matt,

      Agreed, I’m just as surprised as you are with how many people don’t take advantaged of FREE MONEY with their employer-match 401k contributions. In my humble opinion, that’s the very first, and usually easiest, step to kickstart your savings for your future.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Congrats on the great achievement! I’ve been giving the stock market the evil eye lately too because my 401k will not budge! But with perseverance comes success and I’m hoping to be where you guys are very soon!

    1. Thanks SS! You’re 100% spot on, perseverance is key, and even during these stag-tastic times, it’s still amazing to see how far your money can take you. 🙂

      Thanks for reading!

  3. Congrats on your wife’s $100K mark! That is awesome. I am 3/4 of the way there. I will reach $100K in 2016…probably towards the end. It really adds up. I wish I had started maxing out my 401K at the very beginning. I recommend when you first get your job, max out your 401K, and just learn to live without the money.
