You know I find that funny. I'm 29 and just started a 401k this year. For the last 7 years I have been told, encouraged, etc, by many people that I need to start one up. However I never had the extra money to stash away. I just did it this year as 1) I was finally eligible -had to wait a year after starting and 2) I finally remembered - OK so I've been here 2 years and just started on 4 months ago.
