I just signed for a 100% raise and promo at another B4 and I don’t even fully comprehend how much that will affect my life yet but I am super ecstatic. I always saw posts about these seemingly out of reach salaries and I would get all sad like damn it’s gonna take me years to get there and then boom just like that I’m there. Unreal.

I had the same situation. I was doing just fine before (~75 in NYC) so I set up my accounts to max 401k and divert the rest to savings and investments, with a few hundred extra per paycheck to have dope dinners now and then. It is very nice!

Congrats! Similarly, earlier this year I went from $100k - $200k by switching to tech. I’m in a LCOL city but am now forever remote out of SF. First thing I did was max out my retirement accounts: 401k, Roth ira, hsa. Then I saved the rest for a down payment. I am about to purchase a new home with plans of renting out my current one. /brag

Congrats! Try to live on a slightly higher budget than current and save the rest of the money. I was in a similar situation a few years ago and took that advice from someone else. I was amazed how much i could save.

Great advice. I’m already thinking to do something similar and start saving for a house downpayment. I used to think I couldn’t never afford that but now everything (rational) seems so within reach.

Before and after salary? 100% raise sounds super high for just moving B4. Usually that’s something tech related or something. Happy for you though!
