Maxed 401(k) and 100k in investments
« on: November 20, 2016, 09:20:22 AM »
While naturally frugal, my husband and I are still young, and went to grad school for 5 years so we're late to this lovely thing called "paychecks".  After just falling short last year, this year is the first time I maxed my 401(k) at work, as well as two IRAs.

Plus investment returns, we just broke 6 figures in investment accounts! (IRAs, 401k)  This is the majority of our net worth!

Saving $29k in a year is more than we made in any year prior to 2013.  Thanks for reading everyone.  I love reading people's stories, and how "the first 100k is the hardest"!

Thanks guys!  I know there are others both worse and better off, and with bigger and smaller accomplishments, but it's very exciting to see my own progress.  Appreciate the encouragement!
