I spent the last 3 months "growing up" & now I'm ready to go. 1st thing is for me to get my own place. I'd like to buy instead of rent because I don't want to pay someone else's mortgage. I'm thinking of selling my car & cash out some of my 401k to buy a house. My thought is to put down 3.5% for a FHA loan then make a big payment towards the principal to reduce long-term interest. Anything wrong with this thinking or anything else I should consider?

401K Advice needed: Hello all, I needed money last year and took out $18K from my 401K. No penalty but will have to pay taxes. My goal is to roll over all my 401K to my IRA. Does anyone know if I still have to pay taxes if I return the money to my 401K? Any info would be appreciated!
I go on maternity leave soon, and my firm offers 16 weeks paid leave, which I plan to fully take advantage of. The only female shareholder in our office keeps pushing me to only take 6 weeks though, because that's what she did. I feel really put off by her comments, but its also making me feel guilty about taking the full time. This is mostly a vent, but if anyone wants to give me some words of wisdom or thoughts, I will take them!

For my 401k I have a section that shows Roth contributions and earnings. I have a different section that is labeled “nontaxable balances” and just shows Roth contributions. The Roth contributions number is smaller than the Roth contributions and earnings (which is expected since my contributions have grown). But why aren’t my Roth contributions AND earnings showing in the nontaxable balances section?
