Sometimes I get the sense that there was an evacuation order, or something, but no one told me.
Good morning. Welcome to Buffalo! No one lives here. It's just a bunch of empty tables at a cafe, that's all.
I have $50 per pay period feeding the account I use to buy ETFs. Dividends also pay into that account. I can basically mindlessly buy whatever I want knowing that as long as I use that account as a limiting factor, I won't overspend.
I limited my savings account to grow at a paltry $5 per pay period, plus interest (also paltry).
I actually increased the amount going into my checking account. My thinking is that I should not be dipping into my savings account except for planned purchases.

I re-allocated my wages to save less and invest more, but with the savings account as the overflow account so that if I do get a big influx of cash (like a bonus), it feeds the savings account.
But I am still banking on getting a successful business started in order to ever retire.
If I can ever afford to max out my 401k contribution thanks to income from other sources, that's my financial dream.
I'm interested in cities, urban planning, zoning, decluttering, television, podcasts, photography, systems administration, finance, economics, history, and music.
