Baby steps!
« on: July 08, 2014, 04:49:29 AM »
As of July 21st we are moving our daughter to a new, cheaper daycare saving $145/month and my husband just lowered our internet costs by $5 so... with that savings we will be saving 20% of our gross W-2 income towards retirement.

Well daycare is 33% of my budget so it really was where I needed to focus on cutting, lol.
