I came across a blog that had their retirement numbers year by year and I thought it was really neat. The numbers given are as of January 1st of that year. Here goes:
2012: 29,480.27. This is marked both of ours so up till this point it was just mine.
My goal for this year is to contribute $18,000 to my 401k. I increased my contributions to 16% of my pay. I wish I could say that I didn't notice the increase but I do. 2011 was the year that I started my current job with a 401k. I didn't have one before and only contributed to my Roth IRA. I think that having the automatic contributions really increased the amount we were saving. We both also have pensions but those numbers are not included in these.
It can seem daunting to save for such a huge goal like retirement so I like to see the progression. If you have your numbers and don't mind sharing, leave a comment with a link back to your blog.
