I just found your blog from Mr. Money Mustache, and now I find we’re practically neighbors- I’m across the river at the city limits. A lovely place.

But then I think, why would I want the hassle of maintenance when I’m old (er)?! 😉

I’m totally with you on the renting opinion: To me, I love the freedom of easily switching to the next place pretty much whenever I feel like it (give or take 12 months). My wife disagrees with that though. She’s worried that we could reach old age without owning a place that we can call our own, and that frightens her.

Comment on Stocks — Part XX: Early Retirement Withdrawal Strategies and Roth Conversion Ladders from a Mad Fientist by Lucas http://jlcollinsnh.com/2013/12/05/stocks-part-xx-early-retirement-withdrawal-strategies-and-roth-conversion-ladders-from-a-mad-fientist/#comment-4213101 Tue, 30 Jun 2015 20:11:58 +0000 http://jlcollinsnh.com/?p=4694#comment-4213101 If you go straight from 401k to Roth IRA you owe the whole conversion tax all at once, which is not a good idea (unless you have a smaller 401k balance). Like MF said, going to an IRA first gives you the freedom to time out the conversions over time.

I too have good options with my workplace plan but it’s really hard to beat a Vanguard IRA so I plan to immediately roll my 403(b) into a traditional IRA at Vanguard as soon as I leave my job. Then, I can strategically plan my Roth conversion ladder conversions over time but at least all of my money will be somewhere with very low fees.

If you are happy with your 401(k), aren’t getting charged too many fees, and don’t think there are better options, by all means do what you suggested!

Love these types of posts. One of our regular babysitters just graduated and is also off to the Peace Corps in Cambodia! Maybe she and your daughter will meet at some point.

I also can’t get over those guys pushing the lions off their kill. Wonder who the first fellow was who thought that would be a good idea!

“…just be sure to actually leap.” Well said!
