re: Early Retirement - Feed Me Popeyes on 5/2/16 at 7:20 am
I'm in the process of doing so. To answer your question, look into the "Roth Conversion Ladder" as explained [link=(http://www.madfientist.com/traditional-ira-vs-roth-ira/)]here[/link]. Between that and a decent balance in taxable accounts, I should have those bridge years between early retirem...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)
re: Saving money 101 - Feed Me Popeyes on 9/29/15 at 8:27 am
Make a budget and stick to it. Invest the difference. Calculate your savings rate, then start aiming to bump it up by 1% every month until it hurts. Go through Vanguard for all non-employer based investment accounts and stick with their ETFs/funds. If you don't prefer Vanguard, be mindful of f...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Compact SUV advice? - Feed Me Popeyes on 8/18/15 at 8:13 am
[quote]the compact SUV category is overpriced, IMHO. Think long & hard about whether you need the cargo capacity, high clearance, etc before you buy.

re: How to utilize a 457B plan? - Feed Me Popeyes on 8/11/15 at 1:43 pm
The best strategy is to max it out if you can. You will: save an additional $18k pre-tax per year (on top of whatever you do with your 401/403 option), reduce your overall tax burden, and have the ability to withdraw contributions penalty-free at any time post-separation. Win, win, win 457b plan...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Which Mortgage Refinance Option - Feed Me Popeyes on 8/6/15 at 12:58 pm
if you are willing to invest every cent of the ~$2,500 difference in closing costs (and let that investment grow long term) AND you itemize your taxes, option 1 if you invest the difference but you don't itemize your taxes, it's a closer call but still option 1 if you won't invest, option 2 ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Discussion about retirement spending and how much you should save... - Feed Me Popeyes on 7/21/15 at 1:00 pm
I've done an absurd amount of research on this topic for my own situation. It's quite interesting. The 4% rule is often misunderstood. It isn't 4% of the nest egg each year. It is 4% of the amount of your nest egg in the first year, which is then adjusted every year thereafter for inflation ove...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
