I had to make my IRA contribution for 2002 today. Let me just tell you, it hurt like hell. It doesn’t help that they just raised the maximum allowable yearly contribution by $1000 either! I wonder if it’s possible to have IRA contributions deducted directly from your paycheck instead of having to write a huge check every year. That would make me happy.
I shouldn’t really be complaining though, because it’s all going to a good cause! Between my 401k and my Roth IRA, I should have a pretty decent retirement ahead of me. Hooray for financial planning!
