So thatunconfirmed good news is officially great news!!!
21% increase in salary. This is definitely going to entail some budget changes. I know for sure 2% will go to retirement to fulfill my company match. I was originally intent on splitting the rest between my car and Vegas. However, my car only has $5500 left, I'm debating going gazelle on it and trying to have it fully paid before my Vegas trip (double the celebration!!). My struggle would be that I'd have much less cash saved up for the trip than I would like.
Oh but how good it would feel to free up that $317/mo...Any thoughts?
