Retirement Nestegg Report – March 2016

Retirement Nestegg Report – March 2016

Well a pretty good month for my retirement nestegg. It grew by about $46,000 in one month which is nice. I had the benefit of having over $8k in contributions to my 401k due to receiving a bonus at work this month. This is in addition to the $8k I had last month due to a chunk of my 401k matching hitting as well. Overall it was a wise decision to take my current job 9 years ago due to the very generous bonus and 401k matching programs. I really have not put a ton of effort into my 401k the last 9 years and it has grown to over a quarter of a million dollars!

Not much else to update on this month, but next month should be an exciting as we will hopefully be moved into our dream house – we will have a new giant mortgage and the variability and unknowns for my future financials will be much more stable and I can start concentrating and putting concrete plans on when I will be financially independent and can ditch the normal job.
