One step closer

Summer is around the corner and a reader offered to submit my resume with her very well known company (thanks N!) If that isn't reason enough to celebrate this has to be: I finally signed up for magazine subscriptions.

Vogue - 2 year - $12.95
Money - 1 year - $19.95
Kiplinger's - 1 year - $12
Budget Living - 2 year - $8.99

Acc. to MS Money I have spent $94.62 since mid-Aug on magazines. Extrapolating for the duration of the year that works out to ~ $252.32. So I just saved $198 with less than a 1/2 hr's work. Another good news: Thanks to my hermetically sealed existence of late and strong portfolio performance my net worth hit 198k today, my mid-Feb goal. I realize that various factors can change that by the end of the month but I feel jubilant.

My next order of business is to fully fund both 2005 & 2006 Roths and convert my regular Citi master card to Citi Dividend Platinum with 5% cashback on supermarket, drugstore and gas station purchases.
