I knew it was going to be a spendy month but October has been the worst month to date since I started the blog.  and I ended up having to spend even more than anticipated.

Notables for the month include:

  1. Draining my FSA
  2. Paying my Chase Sapphire Reserve Annual Fee
  3. Too many Amazon purchases
  4. Birthday gifts
  5.  Reaching $20,000 in my retirement accounts
  6.  Getting promoted!

Goals for Nov 2016- Dec 2017:

  1. Max out my retirement accounts
    • $5,500 Roth IRA
    • $18,000 in 401K
  2. Save $5,000 in liquid qssets
  3. Eventually generate $200/month in extra income

This was the first month that I saw a near loss in net worth, and ouch. I will have to get back on track next month. I am trialing YNAB for the month of November so that should be interesting, especially since I will be going on vacation at the same time. I doubt I will be buying the program, but I most likely will be making some type of excel spreadsheet to better track my budget. I honestly blame amazon prime for the ridiculous amount I went overboard.  I no longer think I can purchase amazon prime.
