A year ago I upgraded my bikes components to Ultegra 6800 groupset. I love the Ultegra but regret not spending more and going with the DI2 version. Is it financially smart to or even possible to mix and match components?

To use Di2 you need shifters,front and rear deraileurs,2 junction boxes, 6 wires and battery + charger . All can be bought as a 'upgrade kit' that comes without a chain,cassette,chainset or brakes. Like this
Shimano Ultegra 6870 Di2 Gear Kit | Road Bike Electronic Components | Merlin Cycles

You can keep your existing chain,cassette,chainset and brakes as they are the same for non Di2 and Di2 groupsets.
