This doesn't include paying for credit card and transferring money to savings. That will be a separate blog post! This past week was great in terms of spending, especially on the weekend. I bought a lot of Christmas gifts but that's better for me since I'm spreading it all out and getting it out of the way. Last night I had a dream that I wasn't contributing enough into my 401k to receive my employer's contributions... talk about a nightmare, haha! I have the weirdest dreams. Anyway I love that it's the 15th and my budget is looking great (will post that at the end of the month).
I wanted to show my progress ever since starting this blog. I didn't want to show anyone my spending habits but compared to last month, I am doing very well and I WILL keep it up! Look my shopping category is negative this month! :)
Yesterday, I opened up my Roth IRA with T. Rowe Price. I like their website functionality (on android too) as well as the simplicity of signing up. I chose the retirement fund 2050 and a health sciences fund for starters. I'm in the biotech industry so I've been watching it. My contributions will start in December. This month is too hectic, I need to get my x-mas shopping finished and my BFF is getting married at the end of this month (wedding present + all that jazz).
