That's where I am, except I also use it now for medical expenses. Whatever is left over can be invested. No need to track paperwork.

I see this question being posed about every month. The rules are clear. Either you are willing to go to the trouble of saving/scanning receipts and/or using a spreadsheet to keep records of your health expenses OR it's too much a pain in the ass. To each his own. Not even going to tell y'all what I'm doing, cause it doesn't matter to the next guy who has to do his own thing.
Actually, I've come to realize that the decision might be even more simple... Future medical expenses are likely to be high enough that there may be no need to save/scan/whatever your medical expenses right now, as you'll have more than enough expenses in the future (assuming you keep it through retirement/old age) to cash it all in.
