    That's a wise thing to do at any age. Most companies offer a 3% match, and I can not believe the number of people that don't take advantage of the free money. Every time we got a yearly raise I always just rolled it into the 401. I also had US Bonds taken out of all my checks from when I was 18 on to retirement, back when they paid between 4% to 7%. They draw even more interest once they mature. When I retired, that, and SS gave us what we needed to live on. We do have to be mindful so at some point we don't end up behind the eight ball. To that end, I've found that some sort of budget needs to be followed. The bonds are nice as many have matured but continue to gain interest until they are 20 years from issue date. This is our emergency fund. When something happens that we can't handle with regulars funds. So far so good.

    Sound advice. Pretty much did the same thing here and it let me get out of the rat race early (in other words: worth it!).
