Slowly, but surely.
We neglected our retirement contributions while we were in flux wondering about the stability of my husband's job situation, etc.
He received a 2% pay raise, and today I raised his percentage from 6% to 10%. I also sent $1,250 to my 2014 IRA on Wednesday.
I keep thinking "If only I did this in smaller dribs and drabs, it wouldn't be so painful." So not only have I paid the saving account first, but I have small goals for the May and June as far as throwing bits of money to retirement.
I do feel very good about upping from 6% to 10%. That will be significant in the long-run.
So, slowly creeping along in the correct direction.
Nudging along in the right direction
