Sherry of Save. Spend. Splurge.

I got out of $60,000 of debt in 18 months using TheBudgetingTool.com. Since then, I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K (savings rate = 85%). I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    Explain baby bun’s money – do you DRIP with a lump sum you invested when he was born? How’s it all work?

      I get money from the government for him, I put the cash aside in a savings account, and each year I deposit $2500 of that cash to get the max from the government (20% match) & leave the rest in the account for the next year.

      He is invested equally 25% in bonds, U.S. index funds, Canadian index funds and International index funds.

        Thanks for explaining… A post on Canada’s ‘kid’ or ‘baby’ money would be interesting to me. We have a baby bonus, or did, about $6k per birth, which can end up being drop fed or lump summed.
