2010 Savings and Investments Plan

What is our plan for savings this year?

We borrowed $14k from my TSP (government version of the 401k).  So far we have paid off $2k and have $12k remaining.

So our plan for 2010 is to pay back this loan since all this goes to investments.

I am also saving 5% of income in TSP which gets a 4% matching.  So 9% of my income is going into retirement.

TSP Savings: $7k (pretax)
Loan Payment: $14k
Roth IRA: $5k (after tax)
========================
Totalling: $26k this year or $2k a month (note this includes company matching and pretax monies).

We'll see if we can do this.  If we can consistently save 2k per month... at 10% return for 30 years... that's a little bit over $4 million.

Not bad with a little bit of planning.  What can a budget do for you?
