|I have a few expense reports that I haven't filed yet from the past month or two, but that's only a few hundred dollars.
I typically look at the numbers in aggregate, but realized last month that my Roth IRA had been nearly flat (no contributions) for a year. Turns out when my financial adviser switched firms (and I moved my accounts to his new firm), his team never filed the paperwork to start my monthly automatic contributions to my Roth. We've made up for it now by pulling out the whole 5500 that I can contribute this year, and we'll contribute 5500 in Jan for 2017 to hopefully "make up" for the couple of months last year that I missed out on contributing through. Kicking myself for not catching this sooner (specifically before April 15, so I could have back-contributed the other ~900), but live and learn.
This holiday season is shaping up to be pretty expensive - flying to Boston this month, as well as 2 weddings in Memphis (one in Dec, one in Jan). Short term savings will probably stay pretty flat through the next month or two, then bump up again come Jan/Feb. |
