Today is Friday and both our paydays! It's not a good month for my income but I haven't changed our automatic savings so things are tight. It is looking like the next few months should be better so I increased my 401k contributions up to 22%. I want to max out my 401k sooner than later. Y has also been getting a bit of overtime which helps out.
We will save $900 this month. $500 to our stock account and $400 for a new to me car. I don't plan to buy the car soon but I will need to at some point. With this paycheck, I will have $4000 in that account. Another goal that I need to focus on is increasing the annual dividends from our retail stocks. My goal was to have $2000 and I'm quite a bit below that now.
Other than the money, things are good here. I planted about half my garden last weekend. Lil Punk and I completed her first ever 5k. We did a walk/run combo and we came in 6th place. It was a fundraiser for MDA and I think everybody there was there to raise money and not to run. I'm proud of her her for doing that. She's only 6. Lil G ran about half of it with Y and tuckered out.
