Did a quick search and saw that aside from the stock idea club thread, there isn't one dedicated to portfolio.

I'm curious to see how SFers have their asset allocation like or what the portfolio is like...

Personally I'm doing 80/20 (equities:bonds) among both 401k and Roth.

50% - Vanguard S&P Index
30% - SSgA International Index
20% - Long term Corp Bonds Index

Not the best bond funds available in 401k offering so I just picked the one with lowest expenses (ideally I'd perfer VG Total Bond Index)...

Thinking about adding REIT fund to the mix. I don't think I'd want more than 10% in REITs...

Mostly hedge funds focused on small cap long/short equity and high yield credit, but I also have an IRA which contains some SPY, some high yield bonds, and a couple of other Fidelity mutual funds.

Canadian equities (gold, copper, fertilizer companies) & REIT ETF. Small portfolio, but getting bigger as I work and have very few expenses other than the GF & clothes (live with my folks).
Question: I get paid bimonthly, so today I was paid. The money transfered today is going towards my visa bill, due March 12 (but i'll probably pay on the 8th to ensure no penalties). Do you let it sit in your checking acct or invest it in something short term? Do you always keep a buffer amount of cash for monthly expenses (though, without rent & utlities & car payments, my expenses vary greatly from month to month)?
