401k Progress!

September 9th, 2016 at 10:54 pm

I was reviewing my 401k records today and was happy to see that my account has grown almost 50k in the past year! Hopefully it will continue on this trajectory until 2020, when I plan to retire. If so, I will have met my savings goals while also paid off my debt goals and will comfortably achieved retirement goals.

I finally turned in that bag of pennies today. $21.43. It is one less thing to worry about as we declutter. I set the money aside to determine what to do with it..

I ended up leaving work early today to pick up Z and bring him home for the afternoon. He was so cute. He honestly is one of the gentlest souls I have ever met. We spent the afternoon giggling and blowing bubbles. Then met up with the rest of the family for birthday dinners. TOnight he is staying with DD1s family- visiting his other cousins.

I am ready for the weekend. Tomorrow night I am having DD1's kids over for the night. DD1 and hubby are DJing a wedding-

Otherwise,not much to report. Very concerned for Julie, aka Ima Saver. It has been quite a while since she has posted- and she had medical issues the last time she did post. I sure hope she is ok.

    Have you considered a donation in memory of your brother with those funds? Or maybe a new picture and frame of him for you home? My memory is the coins were from him, correct me if I'm wrong.

    According to our 'business news,' there plans are worked out to increase interest rates shortly and again in December. This will cause a downturn in Bonds/bond funds and short term downturns in equities. The trajectory will look more like a roller coaster with election thrown in the mix so we'll need to keep our cool.

    I too wish Julie would check in

    Yes, CCF - pennies were part of his things. I do want to do something special with it, and you have provided great ideas! Thank you!

    snafu- great perspectives. I dont get too excited about the downs...but love to cheer when the ups happen!! Thankfully, I have at least 8 more years to allow for corrections. Big Grin I just love that 2020 is only a little over 3 years away! Big Grin
