In case you were wondering (and I would because I am a nerd ), I have been tracking my retirement contributions for the year. They are as follows:
$5,500 went to the Roth IRA and $5,000 went to my taxable account.

It's almost Fall!! I am looking forward to the cooler temperatures, but not the shorter days that will be here soon. I need to take advantage of the longer days, while we have them, and walk after work.
I hope everyone is taking some time to relax over this Labor Day weekend. Saturday just flew by. I'm not sure when Sunday got here. The positive it that, at least I don't have the Sunday scaries! And...next week will only have 4 work days!
I figured I should make some goals for September, so here they are:
1. Finish out retirement contributions. Only $1,332 to go!
2. Exercise 4 days a week, for at least 60 minutes.
3. Get rid of 20 items.
4. Get the Fall Decorations down and put up around the house.
5. Finish 2 books.
6. Donate money to charity.
I am so looking forward to finishing off my retirement contributions for the year. Next I will work on adding more money to my E-fund. I want to get the E-fund to $18,500 by the end of the year and I think I am at $16,800 right now. The ultimate goal will be to maintain a $20,000 E-fund.
I've been pretty good at exercising at least 4 days a week, but only for 30 minutes. I need to increase this. I am not gaining weight, but I am not losing any either.
I really want less clutter in my life so I decided to start getting rid of things. I will start in my bedroom, bathroom, closet first. Then move out to other areas of the house. I already have a small pile of clothes of donate.
It's raining and the power is flickering, so time to go!
