Norway! One of my favorite countries. I never go completely basic, always one above that. Also, Norway is expensive (don't forget to get your Oslo pass!) so don't go too high on airfare.For Norwegian, I always go Basic+ because of the seat reservation and meal option.
I have Geico's renters insurance and while I haven't had to use it (knock on wood!), I've had a great experience with them in general via my car insurance.
@roboticllama Oh Japan travel fund! That's going to be awesome.
My one thing this weekend is clean the house and donate clothes!
@moreadventurous Ally is great! I've had it for two years now and I've never had a problem. I keep a little cushion at my regular bank savings for last minute emergencies and use Ally for my e-fund. Sometimes I'll charge something and immediately pay it with my e-fund.
@ChristinaMichelle That's awesome! Keep it up!
I've been looking forward to this check in! I ended the year on a really good note. I was able to make a sizable donation to my local food bank AND donate some much-needed things to a local women's shelter using my to-be christmas gift money. I only bought three presents this year. It was good to spend money on that instead of presents. I made some new goals for 2015 like getting my Emergency Fund to $5,000 by May 2015. I'm on my way there already. I've also been putting money away for a Roth IRA and I should be able to open it in a couple of months. My partner is in school right now for the next semester so money is tight, but it should help me save more. Vacation fund November 2014 $240 December 2014 $670 E-fund November 2014 $1279 December 2014 $2050 (woo! made my goal) [2015 goal: $5000] Closed my Citi card and now I only have one credit card. Currently at $0. Happy New Year, everyone!
