Im 21 years old. If i have a fully funded 6 months living expense what should I do with the extra income? I have 2 roth IRA one personal and a 401k matching 8% dollar for dollar. Im saving for things i dont even know that I will purchase. I have very little debt , I let it ride for the credit to increase since im just starting in life. My monthly income is $1700 and my bills is total $800 a month. Any insight of making my extra money grow?


Awesome job. Only having an income of $1700 an still putting that much away in savings. Very impressive. I would just put the extra (up to the yearly maximum ($18,000) in your 401K. Preferably a Roth 401K since your tax bracket isn't very high right now.



Wow, I am very impressed! Sounds like you are doing a great job at securing your finances for your future. You should be very proud.
