The one category that blew up this year was home improvement. That's because we installed solar panels, which would have been a great long term investment if we weren't moving, and we remodeled our kitchen in order to get top dollar for the house when we sell it.
Overall, I'm pretty pleased with how we did this year, and I continue to be confident we can meet our retirement budget going forward.
