I had my sit down “yearly review” with my boss the other day [….] it went fairly well. He laid my bonus on me, which I was estimating to be around $35k. I’ve only worked at this new company for a little over 7 months and I had my bonus from my other company in March – which was about $32k.
I was floored when he handed me a piece a paper that said $52,500! Not only that, but they’ll take out my 10% 401k contribution and match their 10%. So, sort of like $57,750. With my bonus in March, I’ve grossed almost $90k in bonuses in 2013.
Now [….] how to spend it? I want a tablesaw. That was coming out of normal cash flow anyway. We’ll use it to fund our big vacation in 2014 [….] more on that in another post, but it looks like India and Beijing for the time being [….] and the wife wants the rest of the bathrooms upstairs redone. The rest, goes to taxable investments.
Most importantly [….] as Stephanie @ the Broke and Beautiful life spelled out [….] “DON’T BLOW IT!”
How do you spend your windfalls?
