Work towards paying off your debts. The sooner you do this the faster you will be able to enjoy your retirement. At the same time, try not to incur more debt once you have paid some things off.

Start saving young! If a 22 year old starting their first job starts putting away money for retirement, they are going to be able to retire more comfortably then someone who waits until they are 32 to start saving.

Learn everything you possibly can about your companies retirement plan if you are covered. Get a summary of the plan from your employer so you know what it consists of. This will help you in determining where else to put money towards your retirement.

Open up an IRA -Individual Retirement Account - through your bank, or another financial institution. Have your spouse do the same. Contribute as much money to it as you can each year.

Don't touch your retirement savings! Have another savings account for emergencies and splurges. If you take money out of your retirement account, then you will loose money you would otherwise be gaining interest on.

Take the time to educate yourself on financing a retirement. There are plenty of places on the internet to start, books to read, people to watch on television that will all give you a different view of the best course of action. Learn as much as you can, and then you will be able to make a wise decision about your future.

Take an honest look at how you're living now, and how you would like to live while retired. Ask yourself if there is any way to set aside more money now, or would it be better for you to continue working a few extra years. Those few extra years of working will mean more money, and a shorter time frame for using it.

Diversify where your money is located. There are plenty of options such as high interest IRA as well as placing some of your money in stocks, some in bonds and some in cash savings accounts. This way if something bad happens and one area is not generating a high interest, then you still have the others.

Be honest with yourself. Don't fake the numbers to make it look better. You will only cheat yourself of a well earned retirement if you a less than honest with your money. It might look better now but you will seriously compromise the integrity of your retirement fund. Take an honest assessment every time you review your progress and readjust your goals or deadlines accordingly if you find it necessary.
