2015 Look-Back

January 4th, 2016 at 05:51 pm

I put the final numbers into my spreadsheet and found the following:

- Income increased by 13% compared to last year (yay!)
- Expenses increased by 10% (partly because we bought our tickets to Europe which is an every-other-year expense)
- Savings was up 83%!!!

- Our goal was 30% wants, 50% needs, 20% savings, and our budget was pretty much right on target
- Our actual was 28% wants, 43% needs, 28% savings - that was good news! (What is actually means is that any extra money we got went to savings).

So it was a good year, and this is the plan for next year:
- 30% wants, 49% needs, 21% savings
