Starting the beginning of January 2021. I am paying myself 30%. This will consist of 15% to investing, 12% to debt, and 3% to savings. I am treating paying debt as paying myself first, to insure I am actually doing it. If I try to pay down debt after spending money on expenses, I might not get the debt paid off in a reasonable time. I am hoping I can keep this up!
