42% of gross and 72% of net and more importantly < 1 year to the “RE” in FIRE
We are at about 50% . . . honestly I don’t look or calculate all that often . . . instead I check in every month or so and find ways to add $20 bucks here or $50 there . . . the brain is a wonderful thing .
Man, now I feel bad. 20% gross, not sure about net. That number includes the amount we save each month for house repairs/upkeep. I’m not sure that portion counts?
We live with two kids on one salary in a HCOL area, so it is what it is. I guess we’re not retiring early We also tithe/donate about 15% of our net.
Last time I checked it was a rate of 45% gross and 60% net. I live in an HCOL area, have no roommates, and earn about 80% of the local median income. It’s tough at times.
I’m sure I need to run the numbers again.
- for a glorious 5 months between paying down student loans in May and closing on a house next month. We should get some raises soon, so maybe we can make it back up here post-house.
