Getting Smart with Money: Funny Money?

This week’s article from The Washington Post caught my attention and I wanted to share it with you (“Hold Tight or Splurge? Booming Retirement Accounts Are Making That a Tough Question”).  

2017’s exceptional stock market performance has inspired many folks to cash out some or all of the gains in their retirement accounts (often gladly paying the additional 10% early withdrawal penalty on top of the normal income tax), using this money to fund things like vacations, home purchases, and other sundry items.
