The comments on this post are well worth a read. I was going to do a reaction post (in addition to a related Ask the Grumpies this coming week), but I think some of the commenters said what I wanted to say so much more beautifully than I would have. If you’re in the top 10% and feeling down because you can’t have everything right now because you’re not in the top 2%, then definitely take some of the comments and advice to heart. This is not to say that we shouldn’t push for those dangerous 1%ers to have higher taxes– we absolutely should! Strengthen the inheritance tax too! But also… very few people have everything on that list, nor do they need to. If you have the choice between 10K/year on family vacations vs. 10K/year to the 529 plan, you’re already in pretty good shape. If you’re upper middle class and are jealous of our 529 plan saving, then remember we’ve never had a real vacation. No regrets. Well, except that Covid killed our 20th anniversary trip to Portland. We’re still just as married as before though.
