Today I opened a Roth IRA with ING Direct. I can't believe I now have retirement savings. This is a big big step for me. I will be opening a 401(k) with my new company when they implement the program.
I won't be contributing to it very heavily right now, as I'm still working on paying off debt, but once I fully fund my emergency fund I'll be contributing a lot more to that and saving for a house.
Still no news on what my paycheck will be like, so I haven't worked on my new budget yet.
I'm going to be moving out of our loft soon, though, to try and find somewhere more economical.
Big step for me. Big, huge, grown up step.
