Well, the market is making good progress at least.  It痴 crazy to be moving up this quickly when Jan and Feb are my lowest earning months of the year by far.  I知 hoping to get another 3% by the end of the year if markets stay flat, so it値l be interesting to see where I end up

Edited my vote. As of yesterday, I'm at almost 79% FI, based on current expenses (although I just realized I never included taxes in those since my taxes are taken out of my income without me ever seeing that money.)

However, I'm at only 57% of target RE number. The difference being slightly lower expenses (with taxes this time) but the need to buy a home without a mortgage upon retirement.

Some nice progress. I'm now sitting at 84.5% FI (based on my current expenses as a renter in HCOL), and 61.5% RE (based on projected retirement expenses as a homeowner in my home country (HCOL area relative to said country, but still lower COL than Seattle), and including enough money to buy the home in question with no mortgage).

Did not expect to move up a bracket so soon. From past history, especially recent history, it may not stick.

Chickens have come home to roost; dropped back into a lower category. This may change again as at year end I'm going to re-do my estimated FIRE spending number. It's been a few years. Hello, inflation.

And another wild swing in the other direction!

It is outrageous that just a year ago I was two brackets below the current one, and when I first posted (about 2 years ago), I was 3 brackets below. Moving the needle almost 25% in 2 years continues to blow my mind, and is quite hopeful for my to-be-decided FIRE date.

Did everyone mark their place in the polling?
