Looking at the Bigger Picture

February 3rd, 2019 at 05:22 pm

In my previous post where I recapped January, I didn't include looking at the bigger picture of actual dollar amounts that we put into savings. Here is a recap:

$580 - 10% 401(K) contribution
$172 - 6% 401(K) employer contribution
$50 - Retirement annuity
$175 - Vanguard money market interest
$125 - Contribution to Vanguard for even out amount

At a quick glance, that's just over $1,100.00. It was eye opening that bits and pieces in the money quilt can add up.

Also since both my husband and I are on my father's payroll, there is extra money coming in too. I've decided to forego a desk overhall-repurpose and just purchase a smaller computer desk and shelf from Target. They are more in line with my aesthetic and they have good reviews. I definitely want to work smarter not harder. It's also rather nice to bid farewell to hand-me-downs and second hand furniture that served us well, but is time to move out.

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!
