Will today be the day that my 401k exceeds a quarter of a million dollars? I am less than $600 away from that mark. It terms of net worth, I am well over that if you take into account our Roth IRAs, our other investments, and equity in our house (have to check the mortgage tables to see where we are at). But I have been waiting for my 401k to hit $250,000 for a while. I was at $210,000 over five years ago, before the market fell out. My 401k dropped to below $100,000. But it has been steadily climbing. I am better diversified now. I still own no bonds. But I am in different funds, and have gotten rid of the company stock in my 401k.
