What a roller coaster month in the market. We lost about 10% of our 401k in January, but kept on contributing to it. We've got another 30 years before we touch it, so it doesn't matter what we did. Overall our retirement savings gained $122, solely due to the fact we made our 2007 Roth IRA contributions and left it in cash. We didn't have time to buy anything before the year was out.
Second, we increased our cash position to $14k, decreased our stock position by $8k. And we decreased our mortgage by $700 and our CC $100. So we'll keep the cash on hand till this summer. No bashing, but DH has participated in the employee stock purchase plan (ESPP), but we're not sure where the money is. So next month we'll get it straightened out.
Also I forgot to wrap up my CC rewards for the year. We earned $300 from Citibank Simplicity, $200 from Citibank Driver's Edge, Amex $115, Discover $120 = $465 for the year. Not a bad rewards year. Also we'll be earning rewards from having the Costco Executive membership. I wonder if it'll be worth it this year?
