re: What do you consider sufficient retirement contributions? - PlanoPrivateer
My advice would be the same as I've given my children. Start with 10% of your gross and increase by 1% (or more) every time you get a raise or a better paying job. Goal is to get to 20% to 25% or until you max out your 401K (currently $18,000 - I think) and your IRA (currently $5500 - I think). ...

re: Investment Advice For Recent LSU Graduate - PlanoPrivateer
[quote]While I appreciate his concern about buying at an all time high, you don't get lost years of Roth contributions back. He needs to max out his $5,500 now, and while I think it's a really bad idea, but if it's the only way he'll do it, he can stick it in a bond fund, or hell, money market fund....
