Hi 🐠! What are some tangible methods you have successfully used to avoid lifestyle creep? I currently max my 401k and IRA each year, and was thinking of putting 50% of raises/bonuses towards investments so I never see it hit my bank account, but curious what you all have done. Trying to find a balance of prep for fin freedom while enjoying life. Thanks!

We have HHI of 260k excluding bonus. Currently own a house (current value is 440k) with 45% mortgage remaining. Planning to buy a new house of 500k.

Spouse and I max 401k and just started maxing back door Roth IRA. We’re still not close to putting 15% of income into retirement savings each year which I’ve been told is a good target %. Any other tax-sheltered retirement options we can consider with any additional savings to get closer to 15%?

Social media has made me go from not wanting kids to definitely not wanting kids. So. Many. Baby. Posts. Everywhere. Non-stop. People complain that when you have kids people only see you as a “mom” or “dad” and you lose your own identify, but I swear they do this to themselves. Also the other day I accidentally scrolled upon an instagram story of a baby and their blown out diaper. Just WHY is that necessary!? I don’t get it..
