We were less than $2.5k away from being “asset millionaires”! (That doesn’t really mean anything, but the little joys of “millionaires” and “we” being in the same sentence :D) At ~$23K, we posted our lowest year-to-date monthly increase of net worth. I can’t even begin to imagine how privileged we are to be in our … Continue reading April 2019 ...

The markets have been relatively flat over March but we have been pumping in our usual amounts to our respective 401(k)s, joint brokerage account, and 529 for the kiddo. Also, we put in (most) of our Roth and traditional IRA contributions for 2018 last month. I was pleasantly surprised that we were still able to … Continue reading March 2019 ...

Total assets of $955k for February has smashed the previous high-water mark of $937k set in September 2018. Net worth is at all time high of $744k. Wow! Keep in mind though, as we always do, the market will have some hiccups on the way. Outstanding mortgage is below $200k. I think we can reach … Continue reading February 2019 ...

Typing out the heading for this post made me wonder, “Where did the month go by??” With this update we’re introducing a change in how we report numbers. Our Retirement bucket is by far our largest asset. We’ve decided to expand this by splitting up into 401(k) and R/T IRAs by individuals. With the uptick … Continue reading January 2019 ...

Even with all the carnage going on in the markets in the last few months of 2018, and especially December, we still ended the year in a net gain of ~$79k! It just boils down to three things really. a) Keep automatically investing every month in retirement and taxable accounts b) Keep reducing debt every … Continue reading 2018 in review and looking forward to 2019 ...

Read this piece by JD Roth of GRS. Thought I would explore the topic in more detail here, rather than just leave a comment on his blog. JD, and few of commentators on his post, talked a lot about the tactical barriers to saving. JD lays out the numbers that exemplify the sorry state of … Continue reading The reasons Americans don’t save ...

With the markets having the worst December since the Great Depression it is not a surprise that we posted a loss in net worth. Valuation of assets are down almost $22k since November. A couple of factors prevented us from being more in the red than the $18.7k you see here. a) Debt reduced by … Continue reading December 2018 ...

November was a three paycheck month for M and we paid little more than a full extra payment to our mortgage. Other than that nothing major for the month. The markets seems to have stabilized. Or not. We’re still putting in our usual for the month.   ...

On Monday, November 19, Vanguard announced that they are lowering the minimum investment for Admiral shares on 38 index funds, VTSAX being one among them. The earlier minimum was $10k so this is a big deal for regular investors. You read about the announcement here. Even less reason for anyone to invest! As to why … Continue reading VTSAX now has just $3,000 initial investment ...

This should be the last we write about student loans …we’ve written about it here and here. This post is to give you an idea how we paid them off in about 4 years. At the end of the post you will find a Google sheet where we have painstakingly documented every penny we racked … Continue reading How we slayed our student loans ...
