Great post! It is nice to be reminded of the seven principles of the millionaires. I think I will copy them and post it on the fridge!

It is easy for me to get a bit envious of the new cars that most of my co-workers drive while I am driving my 93 Saturn. I have to remind myself that we're living frugally now and it will pay off in the future.

My DH and I also hit the net worth = income goal at 27 (we're 29 now). It's really kind of amazing how quickly your net worth can grow if you save and LBYM! Right now our gross household income is approx $110k and our net worth was $232k in July. Every 401k contribution and mortgage payment helps!
