I'm looking forward to reading it. That's great news that you are famous for tracking your net worth. I bet you never thought that would be your claim to fame, did you? :rofl:

Not really famous since I wouldn't permit he publication of my full name, but it was really interesting to be interviewed and interact with a NYT journalist. There has been an uptick of comments on my blog and I'm looking forward to answering the questions this weekend from people interested in how we manage our money.

For some reason, I've not been able to post for months. So don't know if this will work, but reposting my 2010 goal wrap up from my blog.

2010 Goals:
(1) Max out 401ks - $33,000
(2) Max out IRAs - $10,000
(3) Prepay mortgage - $1200
(4) Add to baby fund - $3500
(5) Add to emergency fund - $7000
(6) House/Furniture fund - $3000

Total - $57,700

2010 Results:
(1) - $31,625 (96%) (goal was $33,000)
(2) - $10,000 (100%) (Completed)
(3) - $1,200 (100%) (Completed)
(4) - $3,500 (100%) (Completed)
(5) - $0 (0%) ($18,642 in our emergency fund, goal was $32,000)
(6) - $3,000 (100%) (Completed)

Total - $49,325 (85%)

Okay, first the good news, we maxed out our IRAs, we met our goals as to principal prepayment on our mortgage, adding to our baby fund and saving up our furniture monies.

We came close to maxing out our 401ks. I miscalculated Mr. Sam's contributions so he was a bit short. But, with his employer contributions he saved more than $18,000 so I'm counting that as a win.

We failed at adding to our emergency fund, in fact we took money out for Mr. Sam's investment experiment, if you add that back in our emergency fund is at $25,000+, and for IRS audit and payments.

We came close to saving $50,000 which is about where we top out most years. This year our saving goal is at $63,000.

Hi Sam,

Is the baby fund for medical costs or all supplies and such?
