Neither my wife or I had any matching for our 403b but we made a point of contributing the maximum to those and the Roth IRAs for the 15 years before we retired. It would have been nice to see some kind of matching but the public schools and the college didn't have any plan for that. However, now the only ones that eat cat food are the cats. It is just so surprising that so many people can't see past tomorrow.

About 25 years ago I bought my wife a nice car; Merkur Scorpio super-coupe that Ford imported for a couple of years.

They were flabbergasted when she said "There are no payments. He paid cash."

Couldn’t help but smile. Around 1988 my family got a Merkur Scorpio. Fun car at the time.
Saved 8 figures by my mid-40's as a professional bubble-spotter. Beware...the Fed creates bubble after bubble after bubble.
