It is so hard to see the gains plus the hard earned money in my 401 drop away. I am feeling it was all for nothing. Thank heaven I have money in other things not connected to the stock market. But I was putting so much of my check in my 401 in anticipation of retiring. Sad, so sad. I'm hanging in there hoping for a correction sometime this year or next with a new administration in office.

That is the question. I have decided that this will be my mantra for the year and will only buy if I NEED it. So far it's been saving me a lot of money. I never realize how much I buy because I just want it.
I was taught if you wanted something save for it. I am and always have been a good saver but in my early years I'd save up and spend. I wish I had three savings accounts (back then we had 5 1/4 % interest) I wish I had saved for emergencies and for my future besides my wants.
