Monthly Financial Snapshot: May 2017

You can also track my all-time progress on the aptly-named Current Progress page.

Crossed the $150k milestone this month. Was travelling for the first half of the month, so some of my ordinary expenses dropped while some my discretionaries went up. All in all, a pretty average month as far as spending goes.
