Save for Retirement Week: Oct 16 - 22

Have you looked at your account statements lately? Read a good book about finances?
Did you know that the IRS raised the contribution limit to $17,000 for 401(k), 403(b), and 457 plans for 2012?

Take some time this week to look at your retirement savings picture.

What I am doing: I ran some retirement calculators and found that we are "done" saving for retirement. We don't believe it and won't stop saving (especially since Mr. X wouldn't mind an early retirement, like tomorrow), but I know that means we can start looking at other things to invest in. Like a house.

Last week we went house shopping and hope to get serious about buying something in the near future. Maybe. We've done this before so I'm not sure how serious we'll be.


  1. Awesome! Curious to see how that goes? I hear houses in Alaska are a little pricey? (I mean not like any house is "cheap"!) I take it you guys plan on sticking in Juneau for a while. Happy hunting!


I love comments.
