Started my new job in February and while it pays slightly less than the last one, I get straight time over 40 hours a week, so I actually think I make more now... Plus, I have much better benefits, like if I work 40 hours M-Th, I can actually take off Friday. And I have a 401k!!! I still have one ro...

Year started off differently than any other. For the first time in my life, I'm unemployed. Still getting a paycheck until the end of the month, but I'm looking for work and deciding whether or not I should stick to this career or switch to another, like finance. I love retirement planning, but gett...

Figured I should update for August. This journal is just for me and the hubby and has been invaluable when comparing where we are and where we were. I use it for the annual finance meeting with the hubby because he has no idea what's going on. I think I might do another one soon, but once a year is ...

Thought I'd update to feel a little better about our financial situation. Haven't been saving as much as I'd like, but I've actually been doing things instead of staying in the house all the time. Socializing can be a little expensive, but it's been nice. Debt: Mortgage: $0k mortgage - 15 year @ 4.7...

Haven't done this in a little while, so I thought it would be a good idea to update. We're basically debt free at this point in our lives. All we have in the CC that we pay in full every month. Our finances have changed a bit for the time being. The hubby's best friend from the army is staying with ...

Awesome! Thanks for that. That was one of the reasons I was hesitant to do it!

I'll look into it. I don't have a TSP, only the hubby does. If I convert to a traditional IRA that goes against how much I can put into the Roth this year though, right?

I was at my first job for only 8 months in 2007/2008, but had enrolled in the company's 401k. While I didn't put much in, it's done quite well considering I only contributed for 6 months. The account currently has $2,325 in it. The question is, what do I do with it? Keep it there and let it grow una...

Did a state of the finances meeting with the hubby. It was wonderful. It's good to have both of us on the same page, financially speaking. He asked questions about our accounts, where things were, etc, which was encouraging. AND I gave him a list of our accounts, what's in them like ING has our e-fu...

My advice, after going through similar thoughts after grad school (pay more to feel better or just pay the minimum and watch the balances go up), is to do what makes you feel more comfortable. You don't know what the future will hold and if not even covering the interest is making you nervous, then ...

Congrats on the end of the year progress! I love the idea of net worth goals.

Good luck!

I think you're right. I've been looking at living options closer to the hubby so that we'd actually be able to see each other nightly. Been living in two places for almost 2 years now and I think that I focus on the finances because it gives me something else to worry about. Because the HELOC isn't ...

Updating my on-line journal because I've been feeling behind in savings this past year and wanted a reality check. I think I'm going to run a "state of the household" meeting next time the hubby is home. Debt: $44k mortgage - 15 year @ 4.75% HELOC: $23,500 @ 4.49% No carrying CC debt or st...
