I think the hardest about saving for retirement is the thought that I could always be doing more. I’m never sure if what I’m doing is enough.
“I’m super interested in personal finance. I remember I started learning about retirement in my 8th grade economics class. They taught us that if you start saving at 18 or 19 versus 20 or 25, your savings change exponentially. That always stuck in my head.
“I was inspired to start my 401(k) plan because of my job. I made a budget so I could start putting the maximum amount monthly into my 401(k) and automatically invest with every paycheck so I don’t have to think about it. By now I’ve been saving consistently for 2 years, so I have a good nest egg for retirement. Even though I feel at ease about my savings, I think the hardest about saving for retirement is the thought that I could always be doing more. I’m never sure if what I’m doing is enough.”
