2017 was a good year for the ROMT family’s finances.
We had solar panels installed on our roof, which over the second half of 2017 cut our electric bill by over 90% from what we paid during the same period in 2016!
We learned about financial independence and early retirement (FIRE), and developed a plan we hope can lead us down the path to FIRE before Mrs. ROMT or I turn 50. As of January 1, 2018, we were almost 78% of the way to our net worth goal!
2017 wasn’t without some missteps. My commute is still too long and too expensive, I’ve done a poor job taking care of myself, and our participation in the neighborhood garage sale was an abject failure!
But all in all, it was still a good year for our bottom line.
