The Horizon's Monthly Savings-April 2018

Updated: Jul 8, 2018

Percent Total Monthly Income Saved: 74.6%

Monthly Contributions:

Tax Advantage Account Savings (401K + employer match, IRA): $6299

Brokerage Account Savings (Vanguard Index Funds, Betterment, Lending Club): $5564

Monthly Piggy Bank Growth: $12,954

End of Month Percent to Final FI Goal: 14.3%

Monthly Successes:

Mrs. Horizon hit her emergency fund number and paid off the last of her car loan. This allowed both of us to save more than our automatic savings numbers. Got our first camping weekend of the season in at the end of the month! Things are finally warming up, can't wait for more!

Monthly Shortcomings:

April was a bad month for eating out, fast food unfortunately. This is an area we still struggle with.


April was a strange month for us. Mr. Horizon got an unexpected bonus at work followed by a change in payroll. This accounts for the larger than expected numbers and the percent savings rate. Mrs. Horizon had no such luck and had a typical month at work.
