I got myself a work paid for transfer so with selling my current residence + buying something at the new city it throws my goal kind of out the window.  I'm making about 38% above what I paid for my house 4.5 years ago and some of that is getting moved straight away over into Vanguard.  I haven't decided on a place to move yet or a price range but I'm likely to have a change in cash flow but who knows.  I will still be at least 45,000 assuming nothing but contributions to my TSP but I doubt I'll stop at that.

Mmm lets see:

Super 1: 25k
Super 2: 25k
Principal payments: 12k
Mortgage offset acc: 38k

= 100k

The mortgage offset of 38k is a stretch goal for us but at $3,167/month it's feasible, we just need to save most of my pay, which is something we wanted to do anyway.

26500 Super
10800 Principal payments
5000 Mortgage offset acc
= 42300
So, 42.3% of goal

Super payments are are on track, principal payments are ahead due to increasing our repayments, mortgage offset account savings are behind, I didn't take into account that most of our annual bills are in the first half of the year including $3300 health insurance and $1000 car registration and renewal costs. I am more closely monitoring the budget from now on.

401K match/profit   2000
HSA                           3400
HSA match                     550
Roth IRA                   5500
Roth IRA catch up   1000

But I need to get rid of things and build up the emergency fund as well.
