C'mon, gang!  Who else wants to share a total?  I bet someone has already crossed the finish line or is about to cross it.

Since you started it I'll chime in 965k. Probably 970k when the dust settles from the market after today.  We're going to coast in on this one due to home value increases and pretty solid returns on the market this year. I still have about 60k left to dump in at this point.

I reached the double comma goal first on July 10.  Then it dipped the next day, but went back up and has stayed above that mark since then.  Today, my NW is $1,015,807.  Of that amount, $819,056 is cash and investments.  Of course, I would love to get the C + I amount up more, but now that I have retired (as of 6/30/18), my firehose of cash is no more.  :(

Anyway, I hope to be able to stay in the double comma club for a good while.  :)

Best of luck to the rest of you who are making progress towards this goal!!

$996K as of this morning - way ahead of schedule. I show our NW number to DH every time I get an update from Mint, and his most recent response was "so remind me, if we have so much money why can't we spend any of it?". Uh, we have so much because we don't spend it. 

DH has really been struggling with our car choices lately. Even though he gets to drive the newer, nicer 8 year old car (he keeps it in pristine condition), he has been pushing hard to replace the 14 year old car that I drive (nearing 150K miles and not so pristine - we bought it used with a ton of miles already on it). I really hope to get at least 2 more years out of it and delay the purchase of a new-to-us car. My work schedule is a bit heavy right now but I hope to start commuting to work by bus/max in the next few months. That would easily give us another few years on the older car.

$933k ($700k Investments/Cash) here for DW and I, so we're right around you Chrissy.  With a really good last quarter in the market, there's a chance, but likely early/mid 2019 for us.

We never really had a goal and spend a lot, but this seems like a good thing to strive for, maybe encourage us to spend less and save more.
