Happy Thanksgiving to all USians out there. I’m on vacation in Orange County, California at the moment, and I’ll post a Flexo update to my finances when I get back to Jersey next week. Have a great holiday!

Better Than The Bare Minimum

The Lazy Man’s Guide to Retirement (from CNN Money) lists five easy steps for those who don’t want to expend energy and still be able to retire. Here are the five steps:

  • Think about how you want to live when you retire
  • Take advantage of your 401(k) or a similar investment account
  • Use automatic contributions to transfer money directly from your paycheck into an account you can’t touch for spending
  • Invest in index funds to save you the worry of picking stocks and funds
  • Don’t mess with what you have; just let it sit and grow

According to the author, this is the very minimum you should be doing to plan for your retirement.
