I got a high-paying job late in the year – how should I prioritize my leftover money before year-end?
After graduating from school, I was lucky enough to get a high paying job (earning about 4x compared to my next highest-paying job…though working twice as much as well lol).
I’m hoping to invest rather aggressively but I never gave much thought to what I should do this year, for my three months of employment.
Adding to the complications, I also got married a few months ago – and my husband is unemployed (he is now looking for work).
If I’m correct, my pay this year will amount to $57,000 and I will have about $23,000 to “play” with, after both taxes and fixed expenses.
What I’m hoping for is some advice with how to prioritize my investments. I never had disposable income like this, and when I was plannign post-hire it was in yearlong terms.
