I heart Gail Vaz-Oxlade part deux

With that warm fuzzy tax refund feeling in the air, it’s important for us Tightwad gals to heed this advice from financial guru Gail V-O: “If you contribute to a tax-deferred retirement savings plan at the beginning of the year instead of during the end-of-year rush you’ll end up with more money. Your savings will have an extra year to compound and that extra year can make a big difference. Invest $13,500 at the beginning of the year and over a 28-year period, assuming an 8% average rate of return, you would have an extra $100,000 in your retirement savings plan.” Snowflake principle at work here and definitely one of the best reasons to delay an expensive shoe purpose if I ever heard one.
