November 2015 Early Retirement Progress

We contributed $4,848.32 this month to our retirement accounts, and we gained a whole $806.40 in investment value this month. At least it wasn’t a loss.

We’re probably not going to make it to our goal of 70k for 2015, but we’ll be pretty close, and if we had spent more carefully while moving, we might have made it.  We’ll be contributing just over 66k into our accounts (not including the 529 we have for Daughter Person) for the year, which I think is pretty impressive, but only about 30% of our gross income.  I’m hoping that next year, we’ll be able to contribute more because we’ll finally be done with the moving and settling – and once the deck and patio are put on the house, there won’t be any (planned) major expenditures in the near future).

2015 Totals

In 2015, so far, we’ve contributed $60,364.88 (86.24% of our goal of 70k), and we’ve gained $7,569.76 in investment value (31.70% of our planned total).
