I calculated it out and I can actually afford to start saving into a 401 K AND an IRA account. I know, I know it, sounds boring, but I’m a Capricorn. Realizing I can afford my own future security with my own will and effort makes me extremely weepy.
They increased my pay at work from $11 per hr. into $15 per hr. because of this I know I’ll have enough to be healthy, safe, well-fed, and STILL able to put money aside each month.
I swear to you that when I realized the words 401K can now enter my realm of possibility I legit got dorky Capricorn butterflies.
I can’t even explain. This is more important to me than having a car or a house!
