Many of us make bad financial decisions when we are young. You are not going to stay young forever though. Planning for the future is a wise idea if you don’t want to spend your retirement years working just as hard. Those of you who have been working for your company for a while are probably familiar with 401k investment accounts. Taking advantage of programs and incentives offered by your employer could be a good idea (depending on the deal you are getting). You are still have to keep an eye on your accounts.
