If you read yesterday's post, I was in a pretty good mood about halfway through the day. That all changed at about 5:30pm, when I realized that I lost the pedometer I got for Christmas. It was clipped to my jeans and must have slipped off while I was out and about shopping. I am sooo bummed! Somebody who was at Walmart or the grocery store yesterday has a really awesome pedometer now :-(
*Update: Just for the heck of it, I called the grocery store this afternoon. Someone turned my pedometer in! I can't believe it. It kind of renews my confidence in people, you know? :)
Anyway, my favorite blog post from this past week is from Free Money Finance.
Is a Roth IRA Really Better than a Non-Matched 401k?
The idea in this article is that since we don't know what will happen with taxes in 30 years, we don't really know if a ROTH is as beneficial as we think it is. I liked the article because I have the option to switch over to the ROTH 401(k) at my workplace and haven't done so yet. I realized when reading this article that the reason I've been putting it off is because I kind of like having the diversification of both the tax-deferred and the tax-free accounts. Interesting stuff!
