Unfortunately I wasn't able to save $1500, which is our monthly goal. Instead I was only able to transfer $1000 to savings. I've been looking at my recent spending, and it's getting a little scary. I'm going to have to set some concrete limits to stay in control.
However, I am excited that I finally opened a Roth IRA account and I was able to fully fund it for the year. Next year will be more difficult, but I am planning on setting up automatic withdrawals and reworking (or actually writing) the budget. I'm so happy that I finally have a retirement account, since I keep seeing bloggers who have had their accounts since they were 18! I'm so behind!
