We passed 1MM NW today for the first time today. 1.004MM to be exact.

I would wait for EOD pricing =P

Ha! Yes, to be clear the new number was based on me getting around to updating my spreadsheet, not on current market prices. The prices I used are from sometime last week, although not the same day for different accounts, probably. I don't take keeping my records 100% up to date and accurate that seriously, so I suppose it follows I shouldn't take particular milestones that seriously either.

Savings rate has slowed down. Thatís because Iíve started coasting. I was burning out for that extra couple thousand a month. It wasnít worth it. Iím happy with our $10k-15k monthly growth in net worth.

Necro-ing this old reply of mine to update the table:


NET WORTH PROGRESS
=================================
$0 - $100K:        approximately 6 years (2004)
$100K - $250K:  approximately 5 years (2009)
$250K - $500K:  approximately 4 years (2013)
$500K - $750K:  approximately 2 years (2015)
$750K - $1M:     approximately 2 years (2017)

NET WORTH PROGRESS
=================================
$0 - $100K:        approximately 6 years (1998-2004)
$100K - $250K:  approximately 5 years (2009)
$250K - $500K:  approximately 4 years (2013)
$500K - $750K:  approximately 2 years (2015)
$750K - $1M:     approximately 2 years (2017)
$1M - $1.25M:    approximately 2 years (2019)

Still not to the $1M mark in terms of liquid net worth (which is at about $950K)--but it's fascinating to think that it took roughly the same time to hit my first $250K of total net worth (11 years) as it did the next million (10 years).

i was like, 'we have no $ in the bank'
oh, yeah, bc we invested 30k in 401k's already in 2019

Net worth today is just above $992K, which is up from $966K on May 5th.

Some of this gain is based on an adjustment to the value of our house. Still using a pretty conservative estimate, since I find the sale of comparables ridiculously high.

This put us SO close. May just hold up updating again until we hit the milestone!

Half way through 2019. I wish there were more major milestones; once the plan is in place, it gets a little boring just chugging along!

Congrats to @TempusFugit, and probably to @LeftA, by now!?

Past glimpse:

2011: $167,933
2012: $208,846
2013: $308,056 (no expenses, gross income went to investments that year)
2014: $358,723
2015: $371,371
2016: $457,543
June 2017: $513,000
June 2018: $624,000

June 2019: $737,000

I didn't start tracking until this year. Probably going to tally it up twice a year, or maybe quarterly as I get closer.

Slowly but surely I just keep pressing forward...  investment accounts only.



EOM         Dollar Amount   (I invested)     {total change}
Dec 2016  $322,818          ($30,604)       
Dec 2017  $438,627          ($40,177)        {$115,809}
Dec 2018  $518,373           ($87,168)       {$79,746}

Jan 2019  $572,058            ($9,743)         {$53,685}
Feb 2019  $603,363            ($4,010)         {$31,305}
Mar 2019  $616,382            ($7,800)         {$13,019
Apr 2019  $643,599            ($2,500)          {$27,217}
May 2019 $638,398            ($29,928)        {-$5,201}


I added the dollar amounts I invested () an the total change from the previous {}  I think this puts some more detail to how and why it changed.  I do like seeing when the total change vastly exceeds what I put in each period

June 2019  $679,549          ($2,200)     {$41,151}

Congrats! £600k was our initial target which I forecast we'll get to in October. Will probably hold on until April next year at approximately £650k now.

Whatís your target?

I'm cheating a TINY bit, since I don't usually record my final numbers for the month until that month is over, but I was so excited about hitting the mark when I updated this morning that I decided to go ahead and score the game.

Funny that this is occurring on the US holiday known as Independence Day.  :)

Onward!

Can I play? I haven't participated in a "race to" thread before, but my spreadsheet is lonely!

Quarterly, from the first time we passed $500K:

10/1/18 $502K
01/1/19 $480K -- Q4 market drop
04/1/19 $546K
07/1/19 $579K

My number includes home equity, because the way I look at our FI target includes home equity. It doesn't include roughly $30K in cash that sloshes around our checking and various short-term savings accounts.

Currently expecting to hit $1M mid-2023.

Looking at these numbers makes me realize how nuts the market is right now. It's gonna hurt when the dip comes, but we'll just have to ride it out!

Haven't posted in a really long time. Looks like it might be time to join the next thread. As for the jump in net worth, I don't have any novel investment techniques, I just got married back in December. :)

Wanted to wait to post here until I was firmly over $500k.  Hopefully I'm here to stay, but with market volatility (and the recent run-up) I wouldn't be surprised if I dip below the $500k line again.

Here's the latest on the goal to Investments = $1M, hitting a new benchmark on 6/12.
This will slow way down since we're buying a new house, remodeling it, and carrying the other house too until we can move into the new one and sell the old (wee!!!!  so not MMM).

date         NW        Investments
4/3/14     $430k         $225k

5/9/15     $600k         $341k
4/13/16    $650k         $375k
9/7/16     $700k         $410k
5/6/17     $750k         $674k (*I think I lost history on one of our accounts prior to this)
9/9/17     $800k         $717k
11/22/17   Assets hit $1M
12/15/17   $850k         $770K
3/10/18    $900k         $770k (refinanced house, put $ in and moved from 30 to 15 yrs)
6/16/18    $950k         $818k
12/26/18   $900k         $750k
1/10/19    $950k         $803k
2/19/19    $1M !!!       $856k
6/12/19    $1.05M        $900k

Here's my progress thus far:

1/1/2015 - $319,018
3/31/2015 - $358,647
6/30/2015 - $350,887
9/30/2015 - $329,044
12/31/2015 - $340,246
3/31/2016 - $390,030
6/30/2016 - $408.983
9/1/2016 - $447,834
12/31/2016 - $459,043
3/31/2017 - $509,618
6/30/2017 - $520,691
9/30/17 - $553,269
12/31/17 - $557,941
3/31/18 - $583,773
6/30/18 - $590,057
9/30/18 - $610,690
12/31/18 - $579,919
3/31/19 - $683,428
6/30/19 - $706,159

Still going up, so not bad, and on pace for $100K/year increase if that pace keeps up.  Seems small after the crazy $100K increase in 3 months, but was healthy.  I will likely be rolling out about 15% into kid's college fund sometime in October after things move to short term capital gains based on feedback I got on a forum thread about where I stand with kids college savings.  In short I will fully fund savings goal that has 7.5 more years to run with the goal of then having that "checked off" and then all savings going to FIRE and not having to figure out if things are headed where we think they are.  The savings will be in my NW number but I can then more easily remove the amount to know what I really have for FIRE.
