Interesting concept. So contribute the max now, and let it act as the emergency fund? So don't worry too much about expenses in a savings account?
I like this.
ETA: Because all contributions are withdrawable at any time, correct?...

So you'd pay off the house before maxing your Roth? I feel like that's a lot of time missed in the market.....

Me and my fiance' are very much on the same page when it comes to finances, thankfully. Currently, we're both trying to build up our emergency fund. We're both contributing $100/ bi-weekly to a roth - I'm contributing to 401k just to get match - temporarily while we build the liquid emergency fund...

I use it much like Dustinm27 uses it.
I set it through my checking account.
If you spend $2.50 on something, it rounds up to $3 and invests that $0.50 into your Acorns fund.
If you spend $2.01 it will invest $0.99, etc, and so forth.
Its wise to note: Acorns waits until you have $5 of rou...

Yeah he used an example of his Dad was maxing his retirement, then lost his job for 7 months and had to withdraw early from his 401k, then subsequently file bankruptcy when work didn't come around very soon.
I brought up the importance of having a liquid emergency fund of ideally 3-6 months but e...

Me and my buddy were diagreeing. He said he'd rather put his extra cash to paying off his house to combat the amortizing interest.
I said if you can, pay the minimum mortgage note, max your roth & 401k, then put any extra on top of your mortgage.
He said a guy he knew paid his house off fir...

How long and what do y'all have planned?
I know two couples who have gone. 1 said it was beautiful and beach was super nice, but at the end it was a little of the same and kind of boring. Were ready to come home.
The other just said it was awesome. lol...
