We’ll be in the kitchen tonight learning acorn squash & eggplant.

Look out for on-video results next week and more tips on how at-home dining can preserve your bottom line.

Have an awesome weekend.

reviewing one’s portfolio, investing money, & the duh factor
September 11, 2007

I meet with the administrator of our retirement plan tomorrow and look forward to nailing down:

  • what our monthly contributions should be to retire age 65 with 75% of current salary;
  • what our monthly contributions should be to retire age 65 with 100% of current salary (omg that seems nuts but heck why not know the number);
  • and the biggie: what our current allocations should be to achieve any or all of above.

I predict we have too many domestic equities (vs having at least some international stocks). But at this point I’m talking out the wazoo.

Considering one’s age & risk tolerance are key, sure. Yet it’s perspective and context that I crave from tomorrow’s discussion (a follow-up to this first meeting).

Beckoning to tomorrow’s planner:

Help us afford more than tooth picks & water during our sunset years!

More to follow post meeting manana.
