#19: Start 401(K)

Completed: 07-06-2009

Yesterday, I signed the papers designating The Husband my beneficiary in the event of my death and consenting to a specific percentage of my salary each pay period, and voila! I am the proud owner of my first 401(K).

Finanically speaking, this only makes sense for us right now because of the fantastic match my company offers. If there was no match, then we'd explore other avenues. As is, though, why leave free moneys on the table?

Yay!

In other 101 in 1001 news, I'm working on making some edits to the list. It's become apparent that some of the items were just a teeny-weensy bit overambitious and a smidge outside of that "realistic" component. I hope to finish and post the revisions by the end of this week, but we'll see how that goes. ;-)

Good for you!
I still haven't finalized my 101 in 1001 list yet. So thanks for the reminder! I need to get on that, ASAP!

I'm doing 101 in 1001 too!! Just started last week. I made sure to make sure my goals were do-able. I don't do well with failure, so I didn't really want to set myself up for it!
