We did it!


#1

We finally did it, we crossed this crucial mark we were targeting for a while.

:smile:

This is a new record for us and we are super proud to cross the 60% savings rate for this first half of 2017.

Increasing our savings rate from 50% where we were last year to the 60% we are now aiming decreases our working years a whopping 4.2 years! That is 4 more years to enjoy doing whatever you want to do. 4 more years not waking up to an alarm clock. 4 more years of freedom!

In the mean while, Keep on Savin’ !

Congratulations xyz!! I didn’t know there was an official formula for savings rate - there was some argument about it on forums on if one should include employer match. Jared and I have just been roughing the % like frauds :grimacing:

I made an Excel based calculator you can use online to calculate net and gross savings rates:

At 30% right now. But the car is now paid off so should be shooting up. 60% is the goal!!!

W00t w00t! We just calculated ours and I figured out we are saving 71% of our income (for at least the next two years).I was totally shocked! I love how you calculated the difference in years, I am so doing that! Congrats x infinity!
