Well the month of January was good to us. The market went up...a lot. As a result of that and saving $7,500 on our end, we gain nearly $52,000 in the month of January. If only we could have our savings and investments increase at that rate every month! Total savings is up to $680,499.

As of January 1, 2019 (Day 1 of this 8 year experiment), we have saved $628,606. This is saved through a combination of 401Ks, IRAs, savings accounts, 529 plans, and property investments. Every month we will update this chart to show how this amount increased, or decreased, over time.
