I had a pretty lazy weekend this weekend. Well, as lazy as one can be when starting the weekend with a ten mile race. But with Saturday’s race, my spring racing season has come to an end, and now I have time to really work on my house again.
And one thing I got done this weekend wasn’t a house-related thing. I finally set up my Roth IRA contributions for the year! Yes, I realize that the year is almost half over. The whole house buying thing sort of threw me off track and I didn’t set anything up. But I am okay with that. As I have mentioned, I use Vanguard, and they have $3000 minimums for some of their funds. I’m happy with the funds I’m currently using, but after a bit of research, I found another fund I wanted to add. Which meant a $3000 minimum. I always contribute the maximum ($5000), and was ready for this $3000, so all is good. Now let’s hope my research was solid.
Of course, I’m not going to need this money for somewhere between 30 and 35 years, so there’s plenty of time!
