Retirement Goals and Milestones
Just a quick reminder, my employer does not offer any retirement benefits. I am currently saving for retirement in a Roth IRA and a taxable account. My goal is to contribute $10,500 to my retirement accounts for the year. I will give specific number updates in my quarterly update at the end of the month.
Anyways on to the point of this post, I'm getting so close to my next retirement milestone of $30,000 in my retirement accounts! I am at $29,364, but the market keeps dropping. Nevertheless, I was pleasantly surprised last week when I made my mid- month contribution and found the total to be just shy of $30,000. Overall $30,000 is so small, but so big in that I've never had that much money saved at one time before! I cannot wait to see the numbers at the end of the year.
