Both SO and I are new in our careers, about a year+ in. We don’t make the amount of money that some of you all make (yet) but we’re doing above average compared to our peers just a year out of school. 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.

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%
