If you wish to reach FIRE at a certain date, you have to keep a close watch on your Savings Rate (SR).
This page does exactly that. Here you can find a monthly overview of my SR per month and year. For completeness sake, I started in January 2018.
My MO for my SR
My SR-graph will get updated at the end of every month. These updates will be fairly short and follow the same pattern as much as possible:
- I use YNAB4 to generate a detailed overview of all my income and expenses for each month in a clean table.
- From this table, I make a collapsed and summarized screenshot that I then upload to this page.
- In the sidebar, the SR of that month will be shown. It also links back to this page.
Since a picture says more than a thousands words, you can find the details of October 2018 right below the SR-graph. In case of large outliers or one-time income or expenses, I will give a bit of context with the image.
