Ali here!

so I stumbled on this site and honestly I am overwhelmed with the info, but in a good way!

I'm still trying to figure out my exact goals, but I feel that I should be able to retire in about 10 years if I increase my savings and get control of my travel budget, which is my biggest weakness (that and target, tbh).

I'll probably be listening and reading more than posting for a while, but I wanted to say hi and please please if I make an uneducated comment in a post,
go easy on me!

Welcome. With an approximate 10 year window you have ample time to slowly and steadily learn what you need from here.

thanks everyone!

I guess my first question is, is there a thread where I could post about my current situation and ask general questions about making improvements? or is this that place?

This thread is a good place to start. You can also start new threads in the other forums if you have specific questions.

thanks for clarifying that!

I reviewed my banking info this weekend and I can post some specifics tomorrow! I know my spending is my issue but I don't have all the numbers memorized.
