TIAA-Traditional as bond substitute
If you have access to TIAA-Traditional you should consider it as an alternative to bonds. Make sure you know the current rates, but locking your money up for 10 years in exchange for 4% interest looks like a good deal in today's bond rate environment.
“So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.”
