Twenty-something Thirty-something married with a toddler and two three cats.
Best Financial Decision:
Not running up debt in college and starting my 401K and Roth IRA when I started my first job.
Worst Financial Decision:
Maxing out my 401K instead of my Roth IRA and leasing my first car. Buying a new house before selling the previous one. We can easily afford it, but it is extremely irritating!
Current Financial Strategy:
Pay off auto loan and continue to fund 401K and IRAs. Fully fund my Roth 401k, his 401k, both IRAs, our HSA, and learn more about investments. Bogleheads forums here I come!
How I manage my money:
I track monthly cash flow at least three years into the future.
Tools I use:
Currently Excel and Mint.
Thinking about Yodlee but apprehensive about linking all accounts into one portal and wondering about the potential liabilities. Experimenting with Yodlee and Mint, although I’m liking Excel better right now.
