Work and Life

I have been in my current job since September 2013. It came with a decent raise which allowed me to boost my savings a bit, take a few vacations and save more for retirement. However, I now know this job is not a good fit for me. I am in the process of trying to find a new job and relocate to a  new state. More on this as the process plays out.

Relocation will cost a pretty penny so I am preparing for it by saving more, and cutting back expenses. I am slowly doing things around my apartment in preparation to rent it out. My to do list will cost a bit, but I am trying to keep those costs down. One thing I need to do is read more on the tax benefits and consequences of renting out your home. 


Time to bring this blog back to life.

I will be updating on a weekly basis to keep myself accountable.

Quick updates:
 My savings account is looking the best it has in years.
Credit cards are still an issue. That is a post I am not ready to write, and haven't been ready to write in years.
School: I am back in school doing an MBA using student loans. No, Sallie Mae is not my servicer...that heifer can stay 10 feet away from me at all times.
Retirement is still coming along nicely. That is one area of my finances where I am consistent and successful.
