Everybody seemed to have a great 2016 and that’s awesome to hear. I’m right there with all of you. Big changes for me the year included:
Maxed out my ROTH in less than 6 months (I like to only use cash flow from each year as a way to force myself to save more after the holidays because I have this large expense to pay for)
Changed jobs and got a 31% raise from my old salary and bonus after including bonuses.
Double my monthly investment in a blue chip stock.
Also doubled my housing fund deposits each paycheck so I can nudge closer to becoming a homeowner.
Back in June I finally started measuring my net worth and from that point to year end it increased 24.8%.
And most importantly, I now have a serious girlfriend that I met last year that has the same goals as me and we help each other reach each other’s goals. She’s definitely a keeper and frugal (though not as extreme as me) but I think she’ll help since I’m not wining and dining new dates every so often lol
