I think as I recall what I mostly posted about last month was my savings for a new (used) car… which has suddenly become rather urgent since my car has yet another exhaust problem and it is really not worth fixing. I have $6,600 in that account now and expect that by the end of the month it will be $0, plus I will take between $1,000 and $4,000 from emergency savings so that I can buy a car outright and not have a car payment.
So, 2016 goals:
- Build emergency savings back up to $7K from whatever it gets down to after I buy a car
- Max out my Roth IRA again
- Contribute at least $3K to my brokerage account
- Enough travel savings to cover two trips (potentially Portugal and Colombia but TBD)
