Stasche hit $300k for my 45th birthday!
« on: March 20, 2017, 04:40:48 PM »
I can hardly believe it!  I started 2 years ago with $130k in my 401k and nothing else, and I found MMM (and a new, higher paying job).  Devoured the blog and started doing the changes pretty aggressively.  2 years later and $170k in savings/growth and holy crap does this stuff work!!!

Thank you all!

Thanks all!  It's crazy to see it go up or down in a day, more than I can contribute to it in a month :-O

And you are right, it doesn't make me want to slow down, it makes me want to step on the gas.  Woot!

Congrats, with a SWR of 4% that'd already be 12k per year.

Keep it up.

Of course immediately after I posted hitting $300k, the market drops and I'm back to $297k.  Oh well.  Guess I'll just have to take my $3k tax return and dump it into my Roth and fix THAT!
