Notes:

I changed up the savings rate calculation to use expenses instead of the amount of money I saved. This should capture wealth building like interest as increasing my income which is good, however my savings rate will fluctuate more because I pay myself for long term expenses like car insurance. All in all it should average out at the end. I had a big spike in income because my tax return came back, I am going to put this money into my Roth IRA over time, but instead of plopping it all in there at once I am buying over time through dollar cost averaging. I didn’t do this last year and it hurt me.
