If you wish to reach FIRE at a certain date, you have to keep a close watch on your monthly Savings Rates (SR).
This page does exactly that. Here you can find a monthly overview of my fire Savings Rate per month and year. For completeness’ sake, I started in January 2018 with my fire SR percentage. Since October 2019 I also provide a monthly detailed overview of my income and expenses to give you an in-depth look into my way of living and how I achieve my SR. Full transparency!
My MO for my Savings Rate
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 the new YNAB 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 thousand words, you can find the details of each month starting with October 2018 right below the SR-graph.
In the case of large outliers or one-time income or expenses, I will give a bit of context to the image.
