Well, another year is almost in the books. It’s pretty cool to look back and see how things went. Here is our 2016 in review. How was your 2016?
From a money standpoint, things were okay. I think we’re at that point where nothing big is going to happen too regularly. That’s good and bad. On the good side it meant no major expenses or unexpected costs. On the negative, it just means no big boosts or jumps like we used to have. When I was younger, a 10-15% raise was common. Now 2-3% is normal. Also, back then, when I had smaller a smaller net worth, a bigger percentage gain could take place with just normal savings and gains. Now, even when the dollar amount is much higher, the percentage gains are less.
Kind of boring and steady at the same time. I guess I’ll take it. *lol*
