Hit 100k nw this week!
« on: September 09, 2016, 04:26:58 AM »
My wife and I finally hit 100k net worth this week! We touched it last month but dropped back under, today we are firmly at 100k. Of the 100k, 69513.33 is invested. Wooooo!

That large jump in debt back in March wasn't a shopping spree, I had just added my wife's student loans to the mix.

250k.  I'm guessing 3 years out.

Way to go! I just hit the $200K mark before the market dipped a little yesterday. Like they always say, the first 100K is the hardest :)

The first $100K was the hardest to save, it got easier and easier over time. Before you know it you'll hit $500K, and then a million.

Dang, I sure hope so. Waiting for this first $100K to come is like watching grass grow.

Don't worry, you've been patient enough for that damn first 100k, the hardest part is behind you.

Awesome job. I just hit $4K -- I am 32 and have been dragging myself out of debt since my first disastrous credit card (and then education loans). Feels amazing just to be over zero, can't imagine how good $100K feels!

I'll be seeing you there in a few years I hope :)

Agee with the others - first $100k is the hardest.  Nice work!  Now don't let up - step on the gas!

Indeed. Today I will be increasing my 403b contributions from $693 to $1000 every 2 weeks. I need to have my wife finish setting up her 403b this week. I plan on having her set it at $693.

Congrats! I thought 100K took forever and that was 18 months ago. Now we're at about 165 and accumulating faster than expected. Keep it up!

The first $100k should be the hardest.  I still have most of the journey to go myself.  Great job though!  I can't wait to join the 6-figure club some day.

Congrats!

I'm so close. I just entered all my stuff into a "Mint" thingy.

My investments are $99K & change.

They should push over the $100 mark next month which will be very cool.

The first $100k really is the hardest.  Now that you have lots of dollars working for you those numbers will go up even faster!

Congrats! I bet that feels super amazing.

I'm at $73+ today so I'm  not too far behind you. Been a struggle but can't wait to hit that mark and then on to $250K
