  2. Fantastic. I’ve had a 401k with work for the past 13 years. I recently opened an IRA & Roth IRA. I’m 43 and decided to really get serious about my future. I loved this article. Thank you so much.

  4. Thanks for reading and commenting, Vanessa! I totally understand- I too have a student loan and have a lot of money going into it 😦 When you get your emergency fund to a comfortable beginning amount, you could consider opening a retirement account, and/or contribute to one your job may provide. I now contribute equally to my emergency fund and my retirement account, after I made sure I had a beginner buffer in my emergency fund of about a month and a half of salary.
