Thanks . That’s what I was thinking as well. Just too expensive housing. I can move to FLL near Miami with great weather and low cost of living

Not bragging or showing off, but our household TC is £225k excluding bonuses. Somehow we manage to save £6k a month after paying out mortgage & bills and then a further £2k in corporate pension schemes. We invest our savings but the feeling of putting away £8k each month feels great. I thought when I'd get to this stage I'd have more desires to spend the money but there is nothing I can honestly think of right now that I'd love to buy. I didn't even spend a penny during the black Friday sales

Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks

This year I am in the 24% tax bracket. I currently max a Roth 401k (and other tax-advantaged accounts), and receive a 6% traditional 401k match from employer. Next year I will be in the 32% bracket and will be switching to a traditional 401k to maximize tax deductions, as I plan to retire in the 24% bracket. Should I try to convert the pool of employer match in my 401k from traditional to Roth this year while I'm in the 24% bracket? I have the cash to cover the tax.
