New Year Goal

I've been thinking a lot lately about how different people handle money. I'm the kind of person who started my first IRA when I was 22. The idea of having a retirement, hopefully a comfortable one, always seemed like something valuable to me. And then I'm reading the paper today while brewing my coffee and I come across this cautionary tale, and I'm reading the advice at the bottom and thinking, "Yes, must continue to be conservative. Need to get back to that six months mark again." I just never want to have to be in a place where I have to defer dental work or have to sell my house to survive. As Cynthia has said repeatedly, "There is great comfort in living within your means."

So I guess that's my current goal for the year - to find my way back to my financial comfort zone.
