I won't go into alot of details, but my company re-organized & I was presented with the option to withdraw some of my retirement funds - only having to pay taxes, no penalties. I am no where near retirement & I have been very agressive about contributing to it. The past year has been a struggle for me. Prices going up, DD growing up, etc - I have not only just been making ends meet - I've not met a few on time. Add to that, the market & economy the way it is, I made a very difficult decsion. I am paying off debt. Luckily, I don't have to take it all out, but I am paying off the rest of my credit card debt - AND - my car. I'll be debt free except for our mortgage! Although I am so excited about that - I am still pretty bummed about taking my retirement.
