Not a whole lot happened this month. I had a work trip that was previously postponed due to a hurricane in September. Fortunately, some friends were visiting from out of town and it aligned nicely with my work travel plans, so I was able to meet them for dinner without going too far out of my way. Chase is also running some promotions with Walmart
and Best Buy
, which I will be using to get 10x rewards for gift card credit. Walmart will own my grocery shopping for the next couple of months, but at least it probably isn't that much worse than Aldi
I also was able to attend a meetup
in Chicago focused mostly on travel rewards, where I learned a few new tricks. Hopefully I'll get to apply them over the coming years in my future travels.
Other than that, it was a pretty ordinary month.
Projected time to FI (assuming 6% growth and 4% withdrawal rate): 5 years, 6 months!
