We contributed $5,902.70 this month to our retirement accounts We gained $16,648.42 in investment value this month.
February made up for January’s market slides, we “made” almost 70% of our annual total in the first two months of the year. If we keep “making” this much money, we could retire on it now – too bad it’s not consistent!
This month, we dropped an additional $750 into our Roth accounts for 2014. I’m counting them this month since they were a bit spur of the moment. I added $500 to mine to get it above a $10k balance, and I added $250 to Dad’s because we needed to open a Roth for him anyway and that was a nice round number we could afford. Most of his is invested in ITOT at the moment since we don’t have $2500 to get to FSTMX. We likely won’t be contributing any more to Dad’s Roth until we see what our taxes are like in 2016, so it might as well gain us some money in ITOT.
Once closing happens (oh please $DEITY soon!), we’ll know our cash flow better, and I’m hoping to start setting aside money to put in Roths next year after 2015 taxes are done.
In 2015, so far, we’ve contributed $14,425.07 (20.61% of our goal of 70k), and we’ve gained $13,995.03 in investment value (69.07% of our planned total).
