Many emloyers give annual evaluations and merit increases. If you are in this group....each year you should save 1/2 of your raise. Either increase your 401k contribution by 1/2 of your merit increase or put those monies in a savings to investment vehicle! It will suprise you what you will have in a few years!! emoticon
