Another year, another raise...

It's that time of year again. I recently received my good performance review, and an average raise, 3.0%. That's the same as last year. But I've found that last years inflation rate was 2.85%, so I suppose I'm a bit ahead of the game. Though with the value of the dollar plunging, I'm not sure how that affects our finances of today compared to last year. We're in the process of buying a house and trying to sell our condo, so the timing is pretty decent. We'll be carrying both mortgages, so everylittle bit helps...

Good for you on getting a raise. Last year my husband didn't get one, or a bonus. Thankfully he has now changed jobs where he can get up to 10% if he proves his worth....I'll be making him work very hard!!

3% may not sound like a lot, but it is something. My "raise" each year is usually lost as soon as the university I work for decides to increase the amount we need to pay towards our health insurance. And no performance review - in fact, no review at all in 6+ years. Crazy, but higher education is a funny business!
