Wife’s quarterly bonus $16,745.00

As a follow-up to my post yesterday about reaching our $300K net worth milestone, I should have explained that it was due to my wife earning a nice quarterly bonus.  Her bonus was larger than she expected, $16,745.00 gross ($9,088.68 net).

She also received her first paycheck from her promotion (her salary went from $97K/year to $130K/year).   This extra ~$1,650/month take home is a major blessing and buys us time as I look for a job.  We plan to use it to increase our savings.

A great start to 2015!

  1. Lol Jayleen! My wife keeps saying the same thing. I love being home with the kids, but don’t want to throw away my career. I’d be worried that I would have a tough time finding a professional job later. Plus, if I can find a reasonable paying job in the near future, we can really begin to make progress on our goals!
