October 2016 Frugalmaster Results

I am beginning to realized I am always over budget on some category(s) each month and under on others.  I was over on 2 and under or on target for 4.  I guess that is good but I am starting to wonder if budgets are right for me.  I will dwell on that this holiday season and see if I want to further simply my life come next year.
Income was belownormal
Not only can I not keep under budget on everything but I can't keep my income steady either.  The job market is extremely hot in the software industry and I changed jobs again.  This time I have taken on a role in the industry as an architect.  It  only took me a long 18 years but I finally did it!  I am going from bi-weekly paychecks back to twice monthly paychecks.  With the slight delay I only pulled in 3 weeks of salary for the month.

November 2016 Dividend Growth Watchlist

GAP finally fell off the list and replaced by one of the more talked about stocks lately in the community, V.F. Corp.

One of my goals for the year is to get my wife's spousal IRA opened so when the time is right I can invest for the both of us.  Time is flying and I need to get my contributions in place in the next couple of months.

Give thanks!
