Yesterday was payday and I contributed another $1,000 to my Roth. My Roth is now worth over $15,000! $15,358 to be exact! Building up assets in a Roth IRA is slow going, but finally hitting the $15,000 milestone is so exciting. My next goal is $20,000, but that probably won't happen until next year as I can only contribute $2,496 more for 2017. Keep your fingers crossed for more growth! I really hope that by the end of the year my Roth will be worth close to $19,000. However, I realize that at the market is unpredictable and anything can happen.
My 2017 Roth contributions are below:
I just like to track things so later when I look back at my blog I can see what I did and how far I have come over the years. Outside of my Roth I intend to contribute another $2,000 towards retirement into a taxable account for 2017.
