Getting to Zero feels amazing
« on: March 18, 2017, 04:53:53 AM »
On March 15th we hit a positive net worth for the first time in 10 years. I keep re loading personal capital just to make sure I'm not dreaming.

Congrats. Being a worthless person never felt so good I bet. Pun intended. I did the same last December :)

Nice. 

Here's the fun part now.  A month from now you can legitimately say you quadrupled your networth.  Then you can say you got 10x, 50x, 900x, etc.  Math does funny things close to zero.

Congrats! Tell us the whole story - how far in the hole were you? How long did it take? How did you do it? I'm working towards zero myself and think I'll be there in 5 months. Can't wait for the day!

What's cool is that with debt, you are paying other people to use their money.

With savings/investments, other people are paying you to use your money.

I realized that when I got out of debt, and it's pretty dang cool!
