Just back of the napkin math puts us at about 1.9M. currently.  Investments and cash.  Can't believe we're within 5% of FIRE target.  Even a 0% return next year puts us at 2M.  Still watching this bull market cautiously.   FIRE date is still mid 2019 at the earliest and minimum 2M investments and cash.  Unless we find decent health insurance options, will continue to push out the FIRE date to 2023 when eligible for employers plan.  Currently  $1200 a month for retirees and rising.  Single payer seems like a distant dream now.  We were so close.

We crossed the $2M mark sometime in December. $1.95M investments, some cash and other alternative investments puts us around $2.05M.  It was quite uneventful as we are young, have a 5 month old in the house and plan to keep on keepin' on.

it's been said before but it's truly amazing how it builds momentum, particularly in a nice bull market.  it will be interesting to see what happens in 2018, both in the markets and on these forums...

$2M and you're "quite young".. So how old are you and when do you expect to retire? if you wait 15 years at the average S&P 500 growth rate (assuming 100% stocks) you'd have over $8 million...Awesome..:)

Me 38, wife is 34.  We're both high earners but didn't start really saving (or tracking it) until this year.  i would guess our investments were less than $1.1-1.2M at the beginning of this year, and sadly a lot of it was in cash.

hope to retire at 45 but my wife will likely continue to work.  we both have the golden handcuffs "problem" but i for one can't wait to step away.

Hit ~$1.0M  in 05/2016 when we sold our house
At  $1.17M in 10/2016 we quit our jobs
At $1.18 at end of 2016

Might be a slow race to two million with no jobs, but hope to join you, doing it while sitting around drinking and hoping the markets do their magic. Slow and steady...

At $1.36M  at end of 2017
NW increase of almost $180k without jobs. I'll take that for markets doing their magic

Happy New Year

1.75 at the end of the year, 300kish increase over last, almost all gains with very little of it saving.

Enjoyed reading the other race threads!

I am 39yr old, married.  I work in technology operations, wife works in education.

Numbers below exclude current residence.

April 2015 - hit $1M (yay! big milestone for us :)
August 2016 - $1.2M

Happy investing!

Wow - work and life got me busy, and I had forgotten about this thread until now!

Congratulations to all those that hit their goal!

January 2018 - $1.8

Keep on keeping on! :)

End of month = another spreadsheet cell filled in!  :)

Here we go again!  :)

MonthLiquidNet Worth
Jan-17
$604K
$883K
Feb-17$622K$905K
Mar-17$651K$930K
Apr-17$660K$939K
May-17$675K$954K
Jun-17$694K$967K
Jul-17$717K$991K
Aug-17$721K$1,000K

Oct-17$762K$1,033K
Nov-17$782K$1,055K
Dec-17$796K$1,058K

Investment accounts rose by $14K while net worth rose by $3K; this is because we depleted some cash to pay for renovations that are ongoing at our house and I don't count cash as part of our investment account totals.

Overall gain in NW for 2017 was $175K, and gain in investment accounts was $192K.  Astounding--our investment accounts made roughly 2.5x what we put in to them.  It's a long way to $2M in NW, but we're an ever-so-tiny bit closer than we were last month.  :)

(posting also in the $500K to $1M thread for investments)

Reached $1.4 million, which is an awesome way to start of the first business day of 2018.  The recent growth spurt looks like this:

- reached $1mil on June 1st 2016;
- getting to $1.1mil took six months;
- from $1.1mil to $1.2mil took five months;
- from $1.2mil to $1.3mil took five months;
- from $1.3mil to $1.4mil took three months.

Interesting to see how long it takes to get to $1.5mil.  I'm still actively contributing to taxable and retirement accounts.

I just ticked over $1.3m. 

I expect to fall back a bit over the next few months as I changed housing and bought for location and bones and am in the mist of modest cosmetic renovations.  But I'm excited to see how things go.  With the changed I now have an additional $200,000 invested as my previous house was paid for and now I have a modest mortgage of that amount.  This also brings my NW minus the primary residence up to over $1m for the first time.

Um, crazy markets, spent close to $40,000 on home renovations up to $1.36 million.

I'd be happy to see a slow and steady market going forward.  Is that going to happen?  Probably not, normally we pump ourselves right over the edge and have to claw our way back up.  It's all good though, it all smoothes out in the long ride.

Probably a lot of volatility in the next few years but overall trend is upward.  I'm signed up to view Vanguard's webcast tomorrow evening.  Discussion will be 2018 outlook, and I'm really looking forward to listening.

I'm late to the thread, but I just crossed into the two comma club last month (invested, -NW is more like 1.3M).  My current plan is to work hard/save hard until May 2019 when I'll (hopefully) have about 1.3 invested, and then coast/reduce hours while DW works until she gets her pension (2027ish).  That should put us over 2M.

Looks good.   Good luck building that stash.  You've got a powerful portfolio working for you now.

I'd like to join this race. I'd been lingering in the race to $1M for a long time now and then realized that I had blown by it a few months ago due to my HSA account that isn't in MINT. So here I am sitting just over $1M and ready to move on. I plan to FIRE at $1.25M or so, I'm eligible to retire from MegaCorp June 7, 2021 and should hit my number by then.

Mint isn't very good about HSA's, and--to be honest--neither is Microsoft word. I always need several tries to write those initials there!

4/25/17:   First time to cross $1.5MM investments and cash

12/18/17: First time to cross $1.6MM investments and cash

Been ER since 2013, and have not added a dimes worth of earned income; just market gains, dividends, and a WR of about 2% from my boring 65/35 index fund mix, with a bit of stocks thrown in for variety.  Thank you Mr. Bogle.

Did you settle on a place to move to?  I recall you were interested in Michigan at one point.

You guys have room for one more? 

I discovered yesterday that I've crossed the threshold by a nose (TNW >= $1M smackeroos). 

I'll just hang out here in the vestibule for a bit whilst my LNW catches up.  If 2018 is anything like 2017 that'll be soon. 

Meanwhile, I'll try to observe the proper mannerisms:  Choosing the right eating utensil for each course, using a cigar cutter, sabering bottles of champagne, you know, typical millionaire stuff. 

Back in the 500K-1M group, we're still eating burgers while drinking Budweiser and cheap whiskey so it may take a few months to adjust.

Isn't it crazy?  I don't want to spend money on anything anymore.  When I do it had better have tremendous value per dollar.

Welcome to the thread! Here's your complementary monocle.

My friends and I actually have sabered open a champagne bottle! We did it as a New Year's Eve stunt a few years ago, long before my millionaire or even MMM-aware days. It's a cool trick and not as hard as it sounds.

I'm a little late to this party.  We crossed $1M in invested assets last May, and now it's $1.16.

Four months later, we're up $50k (~4%) to $1.21M.  Not bad for a third of the year, especially considering we wrote a $25k check mid-summer, plus about $2,500 in other unanticipated/one-time home expenses.  Our investment returns haven't been stellar since May, but we just keep plugging away at the tax-deferred accounts.

3.5 months later (end of 2017) we hit $1.3M.  9 days later it's $1.32M.  (LNW).

4% of current portfolio covers 100% of our baseline retirement expenses*, plus ~$9k/yr for taxes and healthcare combined.  Assuming current ACA rules/subsidies and federal tax rates, we're FI at our baseline spending level.

*not the same as our current expenses, which also include mortgage and various child-related items.

Thanks Exflyboy, and add me to the hate to spend $$$ crowd.  It's an interesting type of frugality at least for me, based on discipline wrought from a prior life where at one point I had $537 to my name.  I never saw $$$ as anything but a tool, but I like my tools well oiled and sharp.  My cup runneth over, yet I want less and less, and my already meager possessions continue to shrink.  For me, becoming some kind of millionaire caricature would be a near seppuku level of hypocrisy - I could never live with what has always been my greatest fear; to become what I hate.  My glide path remains under the radar, all the while contemplating a true final approach as I grow older...  Many in my family were not long for this world, and I'm trying to see if I can alter this trajectory.     

What a paradox we MMM types truly know, and fully understand; Hit a $10k scratch-off, and most folks would see visions of a new bigger car payment, and a trip to Myrtle Beach; a $10k windfall for MMM types would most likely be added to a 401k, sent to Vanguard to witness the magic of compounding, fund schooling, etc. 

David, you remember quite well, and now as then I value and appreciate the advice you gave.  I did end up moving, but just a few dozen miles north of where I was.  I had to get out of the duplex I was in, into a free-standing rental home so I could have a bit more peace and privacy to consider my next step.

The one luxury I've afforded myself is better beer.  It's been craft beer for me since the 80s.

Same here.  Well, since 2014 it's been craft for me.  It's unreal what I spend on good beer.

I have friends that used to home brew, but honestly there are so many micro/pico/fempto brews available today, it seems pointless.

@TempusFugit your comment made my day! Funny stuff right there. I spend all my money on fancy wine though. I was also just looking at my 401K and being amazed that at only 10 days into the new year it's up nearly $18K. That just seems ridiculous.

I'm a deschutes brewery (mirror pond and pacific wonderland lager) person.  Also my little luxury.  Lookeee here what the millionaires have in common!

I'm also up about 20K over the month just based on portfolio growth.

You reminded me that I should find myself an occasion to sample my favorite beer more often, I'll try to reproduce something like this pictures, just for this thread :)

Mmmmmm, Delirium Tremens--what an awesome beer.  Have you tried Delirium Noel?

Another craft beer lover here! You can't go wrong with anything Belgian, especially the Trappist brews.

You guys have room for one more? 

I discovered yesterday that I've crossed the threshold by a nose (TNW >= $1M smackeroos). 

I'll just hang out here in the vestibule for a bit whilst my LNW catches up.  If 2018 is anything like 2017 that'll be soon. 

Meanwhile, I'll try to observe the proper mannerisms:  Choosing the right eating utensil for each course, using a cigar cutter, sabering bottles of champagne, you know, typical millionaire stuff. 

Back in the 500K-1M group, we're still eating burgers while drinking Budweiser and cheap whiskey so it may take a few months to adjust.

Come in here dear boy, have a cigar. You're going to go far, you're gonna to fly high, you're gonna make it if you try and they're gonna love you!

Welcome!
