Paltry raises...some decent bonuses. 401(k) has been mostly flat...balance increasing only because I'm a regular saver and get a good match. Overall buying power is definitely lower, given higher costs of healthcare, insurance, energy. Did manage to refi to a 15-year mortgage at 3.25%.

Fortunate, because I know many who are much worse off.

“401k”

I am up the exact amount my employer matches. Financially, I am ok. No debt except the house, with good equity for now, and pay off the credit card every month. still buy too many ‘things’ though. haha.
