I’ve maxed out my 401k. Where else can I invest?

Our second question of the month comes from Angela from California:

Hi Andy,

I’m enjoying your podcast and wanted to ask you a question as I’m starting to get into more aggressively saving for my retirement.

I’m 32 years old. I recently modified my contributions to my workplace 401k so I’ll be maxing it out at $18,500 this year. I recently paid off my last student loan and had extra money. My husband is matching his 401k too after a little convincing. So we’re really getting serious about our retirement savings now. Both our companies match so that’s another perk.

I do feel like I’m behind overall though. Where else should we consider investing outside of our 401k?

Any feedback you have would be great.

Angela

With no mortgage, what do you do with the extra money?

Our first question of the month comes in from Nick from Tampa who responded to a blog post I wrote about paying off our mortgage (here’s the article):

Andy,

I love this blog post. As a former Dave Ramsey groupie myself, I’m really excited for y’all!

Would love to hear about your perspective one year later. I’m curious where you’re at with this? Have you followed through on your plans to allocate your savings like you say at the end of the post?

Have you invested in other opportunities?

How have the vacations gone?

Do you regret paying the mortgage off or do you still feel it was a smart decision?

From, Nick from Teach My Kids Money
