Fish Parents— we’re making some budgeting models for future kids/when we can retire etc. How much per year per kid have you been spending on sports/activities? I have no idea how much to estimate for that section of our spreadsheet. I’d assume they’ll be involved in avg of 2 sports/activities ever year? Idk. Just looking for rough guidance.
How much house can I afford? Single, I make 136, putting 19.5 into 401k, 6 into Roth, another 10 into stocks, and 2 into crypto/ year. Have savings of 35k and will use my bonus of 20k as well for down payment. decent properties in areas I would consider living start north of 325k. Am I better off waiting and saving more for a bigger down payment, just going for it, or lowering my expectations?

For people here making less than 100K who max out their 401K / HSA, can I have a conversation with you about your taxes paid ? Is it significantly less or is your take home significantly less ? Trying to assess the financial impact to my take home if I max out my 401K. Ty!
Been hell of a year so far. Sort of bittersweet. Lost my job a few months back. Laid off the first time. But my net worth is all time high. And not only that, this has been the fastest increase. 401k up 40% this year. Personal brokerage up 40%. And just refinanced at 2.5. Not sure whether to be sad or happy. Guess will go with happy for now.
Should I max out my 401k first or max to employer match and then throw the rest in market myself? I see it as why wouldn’t I hit 19.5 as I beat the taxes one time

If you have 10+ yrs of investment history, I’d love to hear ur POV: Starting my own investments beyond 401k. Appreciate advice on strategies, top sites, blogs, podcasts, etc. What worked and cont.
Looking for some advice. Currently contributing 10% to 401k and maxing out Roth IRA, and remainder of savings (usually $800-$1200 per month) putting in a HYSA for a down payment on a house. Hoping to buy in 2-3 years once we (partner & I) have a sizable down payment. Should I continue to put all my non-retirement savings in an HYSA for a downpayment or should I also contribute to my brokerage and invest to grow wealth? (24yo, $85k)
As someone with a background in the military, is it worth it to try to go back to the government as a tax analyst or senior tax analyst for the Dept of the Treasury? I'm wondering if I'll have an edge in getting hired as I've been at the GS-13 level before I left the military and I'm hoping I can use that time in service to add to a pension time requirement in the government.

I realized most of my anxiety or depression stems from a lack of career fulfillment. I recently started a new position and things were going great till they restructured my group and laid off a few on my team. Now I'm always looking over my shoulder and too concerned about screwing up. In the past, I have been laid off & I can't help reading too much in to every single email. My therapist made me aware of this but I'm looking for coping tools that someone in my situation has found useful. HELP!
Folks, recently moved to an employer who doesn't offer 401k match and I am considering a traditional IRA to rollover my ~75k 401k funds. Any bank recommendations which offers the best fee/rate compared to the benefits ? Potentially some level of wealth mgmt for a smaller fee compared to the $25 + expense ratios with fidelity??
