Milestone goal NAILED! $100K invested!
« on: November 28, 2017, 08:42:21 PM »
My Mustachian family, I must share this with you because I don't really have anyone else to share it with. I am so excited and happy that I turned over $100K in my invested funds today! I have been pushing all year for this and doubted recently I would make it due to an upturn in my cost of living this year, but even with a diminished savings rate, I crossed the line into 6 figures! My NW hit $100K right before Memorial day. Now I need to focus on my 2nd 2017 goal of reaching a NW of $120.

Did anyone else hit a very happy goal in 2017?

Congratulations! I remember being sooo excited when I hit $100k (about 14months ago). I just hit $150k a fortnight ago, and it was a little underwhelming.

Especially when it sneaks up on you, right? I wish a bunch of balloons would drop when these things happen or something.

I recently hit 100K in my 403(b).  Doesn't include other investments or spouse's retirement accounts.  It's just another digit when looking at my 403(b) account but it feels good.  Been at the job 4 years.

Congrats to you! Feels good, doesn't it?
We hit $100K in investments last week sometime too. Checked at the end of the week and it was just over.

We're late to the game but are excited since we started the year with just over $15K in investments. It did involve the sale of a house (added $45K) but still good considering we have 7 kids still at home, 2 in college, and DH was making $100K until just last week when he got a promotion.

I crossed $250k NW this year a month ahead of my stretch goal date. :D

I am sitting right around $95k invested and really dying to hit that $100k mark.  I guess if we counted savings accounts we are there but those aren't invested.  We are putting all extra money into savings for maternity leave in March so I don't think I will hit the $100k INVESTED milestone before the end of the year but hopefully in early 2018.

Great Job! It will start to roll even faster that that you hit that benchmark.

I hit 100K in May and today I'm at 125K.

I also just hit $100k in investments as of December 1st and will hit $150k in NW in January. Agreed, it can feel underwhelming but I find coming to this forum and celebrating quite enjoyable!

Congrats! As they say, the first $100k is the hardest. Watch it snowball from here. :)

Congratulations. I'm just over 1.5 years into my 5 year goal of having 100k. So far I'm doing better than expected but it still seems like slow progress. I can only imagine how you must be feeling right now, enjoy it.
