      Base $180k, TC ~$370k. Rent $2k/month

      Yes all cash, I auto sell my GSUs and buy index funds. Although some of that is pretax in 401k (maxed out) amortized through the year.

    i save 2k per month, but that isn't counting the 50k in stock I save annually or the 27k I put in 401k using my bonus in January, or gains. Simply, I have 2k in cash after (base salary * taxes) - donations and expenses. I put all of this directly into mutual & index funds, and a 2.25% savings account.

      ~$14,000 between my wife and I. We also have two rentals included in that total. We’ve got to save as much as possible if we want to buy a house in the Bay Area in the next decade haha

      No plans for early retirement. We see in our early 30s- kids (and resulting inflated expenses) will be here soon. Been focused on earmarking as much as we can for retirement so compound interest can work it's magic over the coming decades.
