I would say move money to your savings as soon as you get paid....I think when I delayed putting it into my account I would then blur the lines and just continue spending because it was in there anyway. Also it only takes a day to take money out so if you do need to take it out don’t be afraid to and don’t stress yourself! We are all doing our best and having an account is a huge step!

🎉

Congrats! So motivating! Mind my asking your YOE

Thank you A1!

Congratulations!

Congratulations OP!!

My wife and I would like to retire at age 50 (or earlier). We’re in our early 30s. We’ve been maxing out 401ks and IRAs for years and started contributing 20k a year into a taxable account to start filling the gap since we can’t access 401k until 55. At what point should we be reducing 401k/IRAs and redirecting to the taxable account? Otherwise our income balloons late in life. Curious how others are managing this.

$130k is not enough to cover living expenses for me and my wife in N. Va. We always overspend by around $300 every month. We are doing this thing where we live on my income (the 130k) and save all the money my wife makes, because I was naive enough to think I made a lot of money. I feel like we are relatively frugal, so I was surprised to find that $130k was not enough for two people. Just wanted to share. Thoughts?

Preface: I am a noob. For my 401k with Fidelity, I have 50% in JLGPX (large cap), 30% in FCAGX (small cap), and 20% in COSIX (bonds), but I’m only 27 (no bonds?) All investments are down, so does that mean now is or is not a good time to rebalance? Also saw someone mention doing 80% in Large cap (my options are BSPAX, OGEAX, JLPGX, or PEQIX) and 20% in Intl (my options are WFENX, FOPAX, or FSPSX). Would I be better off using BSPAX to try to stay with S&P500? And how do I choose an Intl one?

401K and stock portfolio is in the red. 🫤 Yesterday, the stock market imploded like an already peeved person who was told to “calm down.” The Dow posted its biggest one-day drop since 2020, and just eight companies in the S&P 500 closed higher. The dramatic sell-off was sparked by Target’s earnings, which showed that soaring costs are putting the squeeze on margins (it didn’t help that Walmart said the same thing the day before). Target’s stock suffered its worst drop since 1987.
