Another all time high for my retirement nestegg and my investments outperformed the SP500 index this month. In addition I have finally bumped up my 401k contribution starting this month to due a little catchup before the end of the year. I have been horribly lacking in this category only contributing 5% of my salary the last 4-5 years as we turbocharged our house/land purchasing funds. I look forward to maxing out my 401k in 2015 for the first time in what seems forever.
In addition I will be adding child #5 in 2015. It was kind of unexpected surprise and I’m convinced my wife just never wants to have to get a job so keeps spitting out kids every time it looks like we might finally go to two incomes.
