October Budget Leftover

I had $200 leftover from my November budget.

Instead of putting it into my E-fund like usual, I decided to put it towards my Roth IRA.

It's a great time to buy for the long-term, so I can't justify putting any extra money anywhere else at the moment!

YAY! That is terribly exciting!! I haven't started investing yet because honestly, it scares me!

Good for you, I haven't started a roth IRA and I've got a decade on you. I have a 401k from work and we have this weird stock ownership retirement program, but I should have a roth too. This year has been about paying off debt and building some savings, I should put it on next year's goal list.

@penny - it is scary but now is a decent time to jump in, you won't be buying at the top at least!

@penny - It scares me, too! You should invest, as it's also VERY exciting. :)

@miss m - Thanks! If I had debt, I would make that my priority. But I don't, so therefore I invest! Good luck. :)

why not towards the travel fund? it's looking sad with the $22 balance.
