First update in a year

August 30th, 2011 at 05:41 pm

I've decided to do an assessment of my overall goals. I have not picked up any new debt but the "wealth accumulation" phase is moving much, much slower than I anticipated. The interesting thing is that in the past year, I've received a promotion and a couple of raises that total $21,000! That's great news, right? So what the heck is going on?

I'm not sure. I haven't really loosened my belt that much. I am now finally maxing out my 403(b) and my Roth as well as continuing to build my EF. I don't eat out any more or shop any more than I used to. Yet the money is still slipping through my fingers, more than it should. I have some work to do. It just goes to show that it is always a work in progress even when you think you've got it all figured out.
