Update: This was the first time I published my net worth – see here for the latest update!
In the hopes of removing some of the social taboo associated with talking about personal finances, I wanted to share some details of my household net worth over time. I will periodically provide updates to these figures in order to enhance my own accountability and hopefully to motivate or inspire any readers.
Deciding to pay off debt, and doing so aggressively, was critical to the success that I have seen thus far. Not having any non-mortgage debt freed up several hundred dollars per month to save and invest, and living on a budget has helped to develop spending habits that have ensured that saving and investing remain a priority.
