Why I Joined
I use this site as a data point in our overall retirement plan. It's encouraging to see what others have built by my age. It makes me want to try harder.
Best Financial Decision
Locking in student loans and mortgages at historically low rates.
Maxing out my 401k (although I just started in 2020)
Worst Financial Decision
#1 (ab)using credit cards.
#2 contributing small percentages to 401k/taking loans from 401k to pay down credit cards.
Current Investing Strategy
2021:
- Max out (my) 401k for the 2nd year in a row.
- Max out HSA for the 2nd year in a row.
- Pay off car loan.
- Wife moves from part time to new full-time job later this year with her own 401k. We're going to max hers out too.
How do you manage your finances?
401k on autopilot.
What tools do you use?
Budget and long-term planning in Excel.
I was a Quicken user for years but jumped ship to YNAB.
I need financial help with...
- Sticking to our budget.
- Boosting income.
Favorite Books
Stop Acting Rich.
Delivering Happiness.
Harry Potter series.
Favorite Movies
American Made, Jumanji (2017), The Martian. Most Don Simpson/Jerry Bruckheimer movies. My list changes with mood/time.
