Question:Where do I even start?

I have a little bit of cash saved up, but I'm not sure what investments I should look at first...besides beefing up my DVD collection. Everything I read is confusing...market is down, real estate is bad, banks are losing money. What should I do?

Answer:

How about upping your 401K contribution at work? Or score an IRA. If you're not sure, try a CD for six months. You won't get rich but maybe you can keep up with inflation.
