SAVING FOR YOUR KIDS' COLLEGE vs. SAVING FOR RETIREMENT - IF YOU LAG BEHIND, CAN YOU CATCH UP?

When it comes to growing your retirement nest egg, conventional wisdom calls for us to start early and then to save 10% - 15% of your income. That’s great but for many of us, totally unrealistic. The day to day expenses of the child rearing years, coupled with the need to save for college can cause many of us to not save enough for retirement. A recent article in the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) suggests that all is not lost. By following a certain strategy and sticking to that plan, empty nesters can make up for the years where not enough was set aside for retirement.
