Let’s Throw Some Money At Our Problems: July 2017 Monthly Check-In
The Billfold

My current biggest goal is to save $1500/month towards a down payment, with end goal of infinity $$$$ due to being in the Bay Area. Since having that explicit goal starting in Jan 2016, I’ve hit it every month with one exception! (Minor medical mishap while traveling where all doctors were out of network led to a somewhat pricey urgent care bill).

I also throw in my bonuses and any other non-regular income like gifts, tax returns etc, so it’s chugging along. I should probably up the dollar amount after a small cost-of-living raise this summer, but right now all my budget categories are rounded to the nearest hundred which is somehow very soothing.
