The flipside to having a boring set of paychecks through the end of the year is seeing a huge jump in my retirement savings: I’ve finally passed $10k in one of the accounts! I’m finally playing a little catch-up and it feels great. Retirement savings increased 6% overall.

Debts were reduced by 5%, and liquid savings jumped up by 45% but that’s offset by the ongoing drain on my finances due to the truck and taxes due. You’ll see a new category up there: savings for taxes. It’s exactly that. The tax man’s going to come calling for his share of my bonus and I aim to be prepared.

Emergency savings have increased substantially (88%), and I’m very close to achieving the goal again. That wasn’t any amazing feat (other than self control) on my part, though. Soon, the house fund shall rise again!

I wonder if it’d be a good idea to add another section that tracks the debts I’m owed. They’re at the back of my mind, but should it play a role in the Snapshots?

I love that some progress has been made, and might actually even make a net worth goal in the near future. Once I kill this debt and settle accounts with the brother, we’ll talk. We’ve still got the house-buying venture to flesh out, so I’m going to need down payment money in SCADS by next July. Can we do it? Tune in next time! Same Ducky time, same Ducky channel!
