Well, this month will be tough to top!  I was able to recieve a lovely tax return of $1250.  The breakdown can be seen in an earlier post, but the majority went to a fairly even spread of IRA, Portfolio, CC Balance and Student Loan payments.  The rest went to paying for the tax service and a bit of coin for myself.  Besides that, I reached near 40% savings rate, which is fair but not all that impressive.  50% is my continued goal, but I do have lots of expenses to pay for monthly.  Actually, my exact, unavoidable expenses equal exactly 50% of my current income.  That means I would get to spend zero on fun / myself / others, which I am not willing to do at the time.  So, I am happy with getting close to that mark consistently.

I will be offloading a bunch of the extra cash this April.  I actually made an investment today into CVX which I will post about later, so there goes $420 of it.  I plan to add another $200 on top of a student loan payment (and close out my second student loan of six!), and drop some more into my IRA.  I am excited to see that with this stable job, I am finally able to start making things happen on the regular for several months now.  I am headed in the right direction slowly, but surely!
