It’s a new month and our net worth has increased to $1,542,269.  That’s an increase of almost $25,000 in a month.  To say the real estate and our economy in general feels like a repeat of the 2007/2008 bubble would be a bit of an understatement.  Of course, I’m not crying myself to sleep at night with these gains, but I fully expect to see a correction, deflated bubble, etc ...

I finally got a chance to go through all of our financial updates and was pleasantly surprised to see that our net worth is continuing it’s upward trend.  As of today our net worth is $1,517,338.  If only that was just in investment accounts, we might consider throwing in the towel and driving off in to the sunset but, alas, it’s our total net worth including our home equity and ...

Geez!  Time flies when you’re saving money!  I just realized it’s been too long since I’ve updated the blog.  In the last 3 months we’ve continued to see our net worth increase.  The key areas we’ve seen increases are in our 401k’s and our home values.  I recently booked some of the increase we’ve seen in our escalating real estate market.  The real estate market in the Pacific Northwest is ...

Day after day, week after week, month after month, our net worth keeps changing.  It’s still continuing to go up, but I have to wonder if we may be in for some pretty good dips with all the things going on in the world.  I’m totally fine with a good dip as that just means I get to buy our stocks/funds at a cheaper price.  Since we’ve got a few ...

Over the last 5 years or so, I’ve been getting more and more serious about retiring early.  As our assets have increased, early retirement has felt more and more possible.  My goal for the past 5 years has been to stop working at 51.  In the age of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare for the 35% of people that didn’t know they were the same thing), I was confident that ...

Well, it’s a new year and I figured I should update my net worth numbers here.  We continue to make good progress on increasing our assets.  Our net worth as of today is $1,314,233.  We’ve been making great returns with the stock market being at it’s all time high and our continued contributions and dividends continue to add to the ...

We continue to march forward on our net worth journey.  The last couple months were pretty average, although average has been very positive.  If we are averaging a little over a $10K increase per month, that equates to over $120K per year which is pretty fantastic.  When I’m doing rough estimates in my head, I use the $10K per month ...

I was really impressed with an article I stumbled on to in the Atlantic about an author who decided to be open and honest about his financial state.  It turns out he is like a majority of the US population: Broke and one problem away from financial disaster.  While I found it somewhat depressing that a man at his age ...

Well, we continue to make progress on our journey to financial independence.  I’ve got it in my head that I’m going to check out of the working world in 5 more years.  This month’s update to our net worth gives me confidence we just might be able to pull it off. Here’s where we are at for August 2016: Net ...

I had a fascinating conversation with a neighbor of mine this weekend.  I had been helping him trim some of the bushes and trees around the house and we decided to sit down and take a rest in the shade for a bit.  My neighbor, (We’ll call him John), doesn’t actually own the house.  He is living with his brother’s ...
