yay for the weekend

September 7th, 2013 at 04:03 am

I always get a cold after returning back to school. Too many kid germs at once, I guess, lol. Luckily I didn't start to feel yuck until Friday, so I have the weekend to recuperate so I don't get everyone sick. We have to be very careful at this school to stay home if we are sick, we have a lot of medically fragile kids who could wind up in the hospital from a cold.

My money will not be straight until probably the end of September, after I get my first paycheck from my new job. Until then I am living off of a 0% interest loan for new teachers, designed to get us through that first month of work with no paycheck. I figured that was smarter than taking my money out of an interest earning account.

I've decided instead of continuing my 457b I will instead do a Roth IRA, since I pay little in taxes due to my wages and deductions. The tax-free benefit might do me more good in later years, when I should be making a lot more money. Of course, I will be making more money at this job than my last job, so maybe the 457 would be wiser?

Does anyone know of a good calculator that would help me decide which retirement vehicle would be best for my situation?
