4 Months = $25K

April 25th, 2017 at 05:51 pm

On January 4th of this year our retirement accounts topped $400,000 for the first time. As of yesterday, our accounts are valued at $425,768. That is a change of $25K in less than four months. Some of that change is our contributions to retirement, but the S&P 500 is up nearly 7%, so this growth is a factor as well. It sure would be nice to see this continue through the year. I do like to think the next major milestone, of $500K, could be soon!

In other news, I did get $3 from Pinecone. I also received some pending Swagbucks amounting to 1712 for a hotel I booked through the site. I currently have just under 3000 SB to redeem in early May for Amazon gift cards. And it looks like my husband has a couple things sitting in the Amazon cart...so hopefully I can score those for free.

I'm thinking next week my grocery list may be meatless. That may save a bit of money and be healthier as well. I picked up a Forks Over Knives magazine with lots of yummy looking plant based recipes. My daughter is nearly a vegetarian, so finding new things for her to try is a good motivator as well. Or maybe the motivation to be to try to save at least the cost of the magazine (which I never buy) $7.27! Ouch.

    I find allrecips.com offer on-line, meatless entrees that my meat eaters enjoy. My constant search is for ideas that require the items on hand.

    Yes, snafu, I usually find recipes online in lots of different places. As I said it's VERY rare for me to buy a magazine...like it has been probably ten years since I bought one off a rack.

    I do like those recipe magazines, but rarely buy them anymore. I think they print the price really small! They're so darn expensive. Share your successful recipes!
