In one of our first posts, The Who and the What, we had alluded to our plan (hope?) of being FIRE by 2023. The time has now come to throw some light on activities behind the scenes that will radically change the 2023 timeline. First, why 2023? With the accelerated pay-down of our mortgage, we … Continue reading A big change in FIRE plan ...

We hit two milestones last month. First, our assets crossed over the $1M mark for the first time ever. Second, our Net Worth went over $800K, for the first time too. Mostly this is a result of the markets swinging up by over 7% in June. Always remember, the markets will show volatility in the … Continue reading June 2019 ...

Our first month in 2019 where we turned red month-over-month. The markets declining about 6% in May had a major role to play. Major expense last month was a $2.5K payment for an emergency room visit from 2 months ago. All good on health front though. Another $2.75K on flights for one set of parents. … Continue reading May 2019 ...

The basic premise of this post is this: You should get the longest term mortgage that you can get. Say, 30 years. You should try to pay it off much faster. Say, 10 to 12 years. Note: If on the 30-year mortgage you were to pay every month as if you were paying a 15-year … Continue reading Mortgage – To get the longest term or not ...

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 ...
