New goals

May 4th, 2016 at 05:14 pm

I've had a Roth IRA for quite sometime now, but I never managed to fully fund it. I have a 403b at work with electronic withdrawals of $325 each pay period which is really nice. I think that from now on I'm going to strive to fully fund the Roth IRA as well. It's important that I pay attention to these retirement accounts mainly because I'm playing catch up with my retirement funds. So a new goal for 2016!

Savings are at an almost 60% mark, 40% more to go and then I will begin chiseling away the current debt at a tsunami level. As much as the debt bothers me, I feel the need to have a beefy emergency fund first. I'd like to get the EF fully funded by June of 2017.

    Great goal! Last year was the first time I tried to max out the Roths, got two out of three maxed and the last one was about $1700 short. Hoping this year I make it all the way to the finish line!
