    Great idea conniebird! Love to see what everyone is planning.

    I'm cutting back to 0.25FTE for part of the year, and then 0.5FTE the rest of the year so I can spend a lot of time cuddling my baby :-) So we're going to see a drop in income. The goal is to still put 20% of our gross income into retirement and to overall have a 25% savings rate for the year.

    Financial Goals for 2017

    OK, we had a nice time stating what we accomplished for 2016 - how about we write some 2017 financial goals? Then we can look back on this thread a year from now. I'll start:

    1. Knock out 50K of student loans (this is in addition to the min. payments)

    2. Max out all available tax advantaged accounts ($47K, not including employer contributions)

    3. Start a taxable account
