Huge savings month, after meeting the mustachians
« on: November 20, 2017, 02:42:51 PM »
We are set to save $7600 this month.  This is somewhere in the realm of 70%+ savings rate.  My new friends seem to be very good influences on us.

We are going to stop making extra payments on the mortgage starting next month.

Well done!  Out of curiousity - what was a typical month's savings for you before meeting your new friends?

About 4,000 a month, lately.  This month is a shock. 

Started saving a lot more in 2014.  It was peanuts before.

Whoop Whoop Whoop! So happy for you. Careful, though this place and those results can be habit forming ;-)
