Mid-Year Retirement Update

One of my goals for this year was to increase our retirement accounts to $100,000. We started with $80,141.07. I'm happy to report that as of June 30, our accounts are at $91,392.36. Woohoo!!! I can't believe that we are over 50% of our goal when I was on maternity leave last winter. I can't wait to hit six figures!!!

    1. We still have my car but it is at 0% so we are focusing on both.

  2. I want to write for a living--the one passion I have in life--so I never need to retire. Still, it's good to have a large emergency fund, which is what I'd have in place of a retirement account.

    I think the whole ..."school, work, retire" treadmill is tired. We're people, not cookie cutter shapes. I question society and the need for retirement funds. I feel like more people should be able to do what they love...for life. If people are too disabled or sick to work, that's a whole other story.

    1. You bring up a very good point about being disabled. I need to do a separate post on that.

    1. I hope we do this year. We're going to go out for a fancy dinner when we do.

  5. That's so awesome. Many congrats! I think my next milestone is 20k, and I'm somewhere at 14k. Slowly but surely...
