Crossing the Half-Millionaire Mark
This month my wife and I crossed the Half-Millionaire mark on our journey to financial freedom. Half-Millionaire has a nice ring to it.
To celebrate my wife and I are staying in tonight, heating up some soup for dinner, and watching a movie since we have been over budget in our food/dining spending recently.
We have now reached about 25% of our financial freedom goal, but I actually feel like I am already there. Technically we could start to coast, take the foot off the career gas pedal, and if we can just maintain our savings rate there would be a reasonable chance that we would be financially free in ~10 years (give or take).
On the other hand with all the life planning we are doing, our savings ability could be changing drastically over the next couple years. Guess its a bit premature to feel like we can coast to the finish line.
Its been 2 years, 2 months since I reached 10% of our financial freedom goal.
