2014 Summary

December 31st, 2014 at 04:15 pm

Well, it turned out that even with an unexpected medical expense, 2014 was a good year.

- D got a raise in October, and then a promotion which came with another raise (effective 1/1/15)

- We spent 25% on wants, 53% on needs and 22% on savings (close to the 30/50/20 ideal)

- D had a lot of side work (photography) and with that extra money, we were able to get both IRAs up to the $5,500 limit

- Our food spending was less than last year!

- We paid off $4,013 in mortgage principal

- We made $1882 more than we spent

- We have a little over $10k in our car savings fund

- Everyone is happy and healthy, and that's what really matters!!

Happy New Year!!!
