February Savings

I get paid bi-monthly, which usually happens on the 1st and 15th of the month.  I was able to save $500 on the 1st and $150 on the 15th.

Unfortunately, it’s tax season, and we finally filed our taxes.  Thankfully we got $300 back from federal, but owed California $700.  Most of my discretionary spending went to paying the rest of our taxes, and luckily we’ve kept our spending to a minimum so we’re still able to save.  With all the market fluctuations, from dropping 1,000 points last week to rebounding this week, I’ve decided to save in a regular savings account before moving it into the stock market.  My plan is to buy at a lower price when the market self corrects again.  We’ll see how it goes.
