I appreciate the advice you have given in this thread. As far as my situation goes:
I am currently maxing out my Roth IRA and investing 10% of my salary into my 401K. I do not wish to increase my retirement contribution any further until next year. I have a sizable amount of savings that I accumu...

No not at all. I invest 18% of my salary into retirement. I save most of my money as it is, I don't want to lock all of it into retirement accounts though. I wish for improved growth aside from a savings, yet I don't want to throw it away either. The pa...
