We have ~$400k HHI. Monthly expenses are ~$6k (1 child). We live in Austin.

We also just honestly feel like the suburbs out here are so very bland. Thoughts on us doing this? Are we crazy? Is this understandable given where we live?

Having grown up in the lower middle class and not with much money family wise, I always thought one day when I made six figures I would have tons of money coming in, but lately I am discouraged with my “take home pay”. Combined my wife and I make about $275k, we max both our 401k accounts out and after all taxes, and other deductions we take home roughly $150k. Don’t get me wrong this is a great amount. I just always dreamed my take home would be more. Anyone else feel this way? We lose over 40%

Looking for advice as we start our personal finance and investment journey: pay off consumer debt before maxing out 401k? And where does student debt and/or mortgage fit into the picture? FWIW, both of our parents probably won’t be able to retire anytime soon, so can’t get much advice from family.
