It’s been a bit since I last updated our net worth. The January figures over to the right represented how we were doing at the beginning of January 2018. By the end of January or so, we saw our net worth climb to JUST over $1.7M. What an amazing milestone for us. I never imagined we’d actually be able to ...

2018 is finally here.  We’re approaching my favorite time of year from a financial standpoint.  In February my wife and I both get our annual bonuses and in March we get our raises for the year.  Along with those, we usually get some amount of money back from our taxes (although I try to minimize that) and we also get ...

There I was, sitting at my desk in my company’s office building at 5:50 in the morning, two weeks before Christmas, slowly trying to wake up while reading and responding to emails that had come in overnight.  I usually get in to the office at 5:30 in the morning to miss the ridiculous traffic that starts to really build by ...

When I checked a few of my stocks and funds on Google Finance today I saw some pretty crazy numbers.  Apparently they are having some sort of issue: I think it’s safe to say I would have retired today if I’d actually seen a 1 million percent return on a couple of my stocks.  I suppose I”ll have to settle ...

Wow!  I haven’t really been paying attention to our net worth and didn’t realize that in just about a month and a half we saw an increase of nearly $47,000.  It’s actually hard to believe how quickly our net worth continues to increase.  It sure is going to be a bit of a shock when we have a massive market ...

One of the things about being an amateur blogger and personal finance geek is that we don’t have to pretend to know everything.  I really don’t know that much about investing but I don’t have to and I can still meet my goals by copying what others are doing.  I’ve been reading financial blogs since the beginning, and in fact ...

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 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, ...

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 ...

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 ...
