Reading about people saving large percentages of their salaries to save for early retirement makes me think: What percent of my earnings am I saving? And how do people figure this out? Before taxes? After taxes? Before paying my health care amount? Before or after my union dues?  I think that to keep things simple […] ...

I had an amazing time at the Cents Positive Retreat. I really needed some time away, and it was great being around so many people with similar financial goals.  I thought some people may be interested to know what the overall cost could be. Here are the financial costs of my trip: Flight: 417 (I […] ...

Our Next Life writer Tanja Hester’s blog post entitled “Of Boosts and Bootstraps: // One Story, Two Ways” is one of my favorites. In it she chronicles her accomplishments using 2 different narratives: 1) her bootstraps narrative in which she attributes her success to hard work and 2). her boosts narrative where she outlines how […] ...

While I was double checking my flight to the first ever Cents Positive Retreat in Denver, Delta informed me that it is just 18 days away. (I’m flying in on Thursday for the Blogger Add-on). The retreat is finally close enough to get really excited about it. In preparation for the retreat, I wanted to brainstorm […] ...

Welcome to my Third Quarter Net Worth update of 2018! I created a nifty chart below; I need to explain a few points beforehand though. The “Net Worth” row is the total of all the other categories (from Mortgage to Cash). The cars, student loan debt and Mr. POAI’s business accounts are not included in the […] ...

I thought I had scheduled my mortgage payment for this month, but I double checked the “scheduled transfers” area of my online bank account to make sure. I didn’t see it, so I scheduled it again.  And I was right. I had scheduled my mortgage payment, and then I scheduled it again. So I paid […] ...

On Jan 1, 2018, we owed 68,645.55 principal on the house. Now, 7 months later, we are at 63,604. I’m looking forward to getting the mortgage down to 60,000–just because it’s a nice round number, a nice goal. Our principal payment right now is 353 a month. Paying only that, we’d take 10 months to […] ...

Today is the first full day of a Non-Violent Communication retreat for educators entitled Teach for Life. My goals for the week are to gain some more self-connection and direction in life. (Lately I have been feeling overwhelmed with all I want to do, so I could use some help figuring out what to let […] ...

I had been contemplating attending the Cents Positive retreat since Tanja from Our Next Life first mentioned it. I’ve been really into personal finance for a few years now, and I realized I could definitely use some support getting to where I am going. My ultimate plan? To have the option of retiring at age 54, in […] ...
