We got our quarterly investment statements today so I recalculated our net worth. I came up with $1,993,000 (mostly in investments & cash). Seven thousand to the next big milestone!

Mr. Melisande is planning on working at least 8 more years (he doesn't want to retire early, although I have), so maybe we'll make it up to 2.5M or even more.

I think there's also a thread on here in the race from $2 million to $3 million

Thanks, found the thread!

Count me in. I love these threads as I like seeing progress over time.  I'm carrying over my progress from the 500k-1m thread if that's OK..

I'd like to join to help motivate me. Currently at $540k and hope to hit the big 1M in the next couple of years.

I made it to $748k! Keep saving everybody!!

I made it to $988k and was getting excited... and then taxes hit! Looks like it'll be another few months yet :(

I finally did it!! Crawled over the line to $1,000,330 today!  Feels pretty surreal. Never thought I'd actually be worth a million dollars. Now I guess I keep on saving towards the next million!

Currently at $1.11m.  Don't really have a goal number at this point. I love running my own business so just tryna ride it out as long as possible and "make hay while the sun shines" as they say.

Passed the half way point!  Somehow we have $1.535m. Not sure how long the next 0.465 will take but I'll report back if we get there!

I truly love these threads, all of them. You can feel the positive energy in every post, whether it's the 100k or $1,2,3 and beyond million dollar threads.  I can't sleep and work is in a few hours.  Nice to know you really don't have if you choose not to anymore.

how much of that dollar change is your own saving versus how much is change in value of existing 'stache?

I would guess 'stache growth is more than 50% at least for this year.

Our stache has grown at an amazing rate lately too.  The only problem is that I've become less motivated at work...which isn't good!  I think the inevitable stock market 'correction' will be the kick in the pants I need...although I'm certainly not hoping for one.

I'm hoping for one.   I'm ~3 years away from FI and around halfway through this race.  I'd prefer to have a correction in these next few years than see the market keep climbing steadily and see a PE 10 north of 37 around the time that I'm thinking to pull the trigger.

This is my mindset too.

Not exactly sure what the accounting rules are for measuring the $2M.. but..

We are at

$1824k.. investible.
 $519 k.. Pension value
 
$2343k Total liquid.

House (including rentals I'm guessing at maybe $400k),

We don't have any kids.. yearly spend is around $35k and we get about $20k/yr in rent. We are now both RE'd and intend to do some travel.
