    We are refinancing our house (1.5 years into the loan) to get a significantly lower rate. We have also maintained our Roth IRA contributions.

    With the addition of 2 kids in one year, we need a bigger house badly, but we can’t buy until our house sells. Sadly, the only people that want to buy our house think that we should sell it for dirt cheap – just because some people are selling their houses for a loss out of desperation doesn’t mean EVERYONE is!

    We too refinanced our home. Not only did we get a low interest rate (would have had a lower one if we carried debt – can you believe that) BUT we took 6 years off of our loan which turned out to be a savings of $50k+. Talk about a great feeling.

    I’ve had some cash in my retirement funds. I purchased index funds during the decline in the markets in late Feb & early March. I’m hoping I’m right, but in any case, I’m buying it cheaper than I could have about six months ago. With a 25 year investment horizon, even if it goes down more in the short run, I should be well ahead of the game when I think I may want to take funds out of my retirement.
