Retirement Nestegg Report – October 2014

Retirement Nestegg Report – October 2014

Our nestegg grew this month slightly but our investments trailed the SP500 significantly for the 2nd straight month. Well I have now maxed out both my wife and my Roth IRAs for 2014. We will now focus on building up our our taxable investment accounts as well as finding ways to save in the cost of constructing our new house. I’m trying to convince my wife that despite me having zero woodworking experience that I can build use kitchen cabinets, tables, and other things for our house. So far I have not been so convincing.
