I'm curious how you all think I have done with this first step of my plan? Am I putting too much away too early? Is my math wrong? I would really appreciate any feedback, since I want this plan to start on January 1 of this year.

Hi Ryan,

I'm not one of the FIREd members of this board, so my perspective may be different, but I think that it is commendable that you and your new wife are planning to start saving for retirement like you are so early in your career and marriage. I am a bit tired this evening to be trying to analyze your numbers, but for anyone to be putting almost 1K per month away for retirement and be committed to LBTM immediately after leaving grad school is great.
