Thought for sure this was going to be an update with a downtick, but the top continues to not be in. June is the first month with my shiny new lower income due to the even shinier new 3 day per week schedule that started May 1st, so it will be interesting to see how this goes.

Joining this race almost a year and a half before I expected to... thanks, stock market! We're just barely over the line and will likely swing up and down around it a few times before we're really settled in, but feeling like it's a cause for celebration in any case.

Net worth progress (includes home equity; does not include roughly $40k in cash; does not include 529s for 2 kids)

10/1/18 $502K

01/1/19 $480K
04/1/19 $546K
07/1/19 $579K
10/1/19 $586K

1/1/20 $650K
4/1/20 $678K
7/1/20 $689K
10/1/20 $751K

1/1/21 $880K
4/1/21 $945K
6/1/21 $1,012K

Expected graduation: Early 2028

Timeline guesstimate accounts for some leaner savings years ahead; baby #2 arrived in March, so we're headed toward the dreaded "double-daycare" valley of desolation very soon. But we'll get where we're headed eventually!

Welcome @Lucky Recardito!  Same boat here -- skated in long before I expected to.  Congrats on your new little one!

Hit 1.2 M today for the first time.  Market is scary but I'm going to hold fast and keep pouring it in every two weeks.  1049 days to RE.  Maybe sooner but I think I should wait until the year I turn 55.

1.3 M today.  Investments have done well over the past month.

Just hit 1.5 M TNW today.  Solidifying on 1/2/2023 as final retirement day.  Three years from tomorrow barring serious market disaster or other unforeseen consequences.

1.8 M TNW as of Friday, 6-4-2021.  1 M LNW first reached on 12-15-2020 and again on 4-15-2021.  Retirement slated for 4/3/2023.

Updating myself for 12/31/2020. Starting 2021 officially unemployed.
What an insane 2020. Biggest jump ever in any year considering I got laid-off. Took advantage when the market was down.
Investments went up around $110k and NW went up around $175k.
In process of refinancing the primary house with a cash-out, If successful I guess the cash will put my investments over $1 million. Won't have anymore excuses to stay in this thread ??

            Dec 31st 2020       
                  -----         
Rental       210000- Paid off. getting only $10k of net income per year.   
Primary     145000- Valued this house at $365k. Exact house just sold in Nov for $387k.

First post in this thread.
I have no interest in getting to $2 millions but I think they don't want me to keep posting in the $1 million thread so I'm posting here.
We are on the verge of CoastFI and this is just to update myself.
Lost my job beginning of the year. Got it back mid-April. Wife will quit end of July 31st.

 June 12th 2021     
                  -----         
Rental       230000- Paid off. Housing market is insane here in FL and this is more
                              accurate. We have a month to month lease and we are
                              planning to sell it before the end of the year. Will probably get
                              more than $230k after selling fee. 
Primary     216954- Older version of this house just sold for $430k in 5 days. Newer
                              version of this house will cost you $500k with ZERO upgrade.
                              This house will sell easily for $450k+ but I just had an
                              appraisal done for refinance and it came back as $434k(she's
                              not smart). This value is minus selling fee and mortgage owed.

Past the $1.5M mark now. This is just under 23 months from when I entered this thread.

If we keep up this pace, we will hit $2M by mid-2023.

It's definitely going faster than I anticipated.

Nice work!  Assuming consistent contributions and broad index funds, it still comes down to luck in a sense.  It took us about 18 years to reach $1M, but things were VERY slow-going for the first 10-15 years -- most of this was 2000-2010 and growth was poor that decade. We were accumulating a lot of relatively inexpensive shares via DCA though, and when the markets recovered it wasn't long before we hit $1M.

The 2nd million came 4x faster, in about 4.5 years.  Now I'm kind of where you are...will we have yet another million in just a couple more years?  Recency bias makes me want to say yes, but my first 18 years of investing makes me hesitant to get my hopes up.

We hit $1M TNW in December 2016 and have now reached $2M TNW, so 4 1/2 years to double our NW.  I'll probably stick around this thread for a while as I'm sure our NW will dip back below $2M before staying above $2M for the long-haul. Just over $1.4M of this is LNW, with the rest of it being tied up in real estate.

DH and I came from very financially insecure backgrounds and 18 years ago I was solidly in the negative net worth camp.  We're pretty pleased with what we've been able to achieve and creating financial security feels really good for both of us.

Similar here.  We first hit 1M in July 2018 and projecting 2M this year.  1.1M LNW with the rest real estate.  We bought a 17 acre lake property in 2016 for $150k (not a misprint) and have it conservatively valued at 450k now.  If we were interested in selling (which we're not), I think we could get over 750k for it. 

The second million will definitely come sooner than the first!

First post in this thread since we just crossed the $1 million mark last week in investible assets/cash. Took 8 years of very aggressive saving to get here. We are now in barebones FI territory and have also downshifted to part time (Coast FI). Plan is to max 401k and Roth while still working and whatever is left after expenses to taxable account. At least I feel secure that compounding will be doing most of the heavy lifting from this point on. Not sure if we will ever get to $2 million as we would RE and in Fat FIRE territory by then. But, you never know!

Joined this group late last week! It might be a bouncy up and down with the market while I work to get a firm footing in the group. I should be able to save around $15k in July which sort of seems like a lot, but at this point, thatís an easy market bounce in a day.

Tracking savings/investments only. I donít own any property/real estate. My only debt is an auto, but my vehicles/belongings outweigh that balance many times over, so I donít count these things for/against. I was waiting to hit $1MM to pay it off, Iíll probably do that sometime next year.

I work as a contractor and my career is volatile. I have no idea where Iíll work (be it what company or state) usually around 1-2 years ahead of time. With that in mind, I donít have a real FIRE number but will keep taking the incredibly good/high paying jobs as they fall in my lap, and when they donít, enjoying long sabbaticals! At some point, Iíll start turning down the good jobs as well (probably $2M-$3M).

I was looking through this thread for my last post, and I can't belive it's been 6 months. 2021 has been crazy, equal to 2020 but in different ways.

I can admit, after hitting 1MM my "care level" has dropped off a bit, I find myself focusing on other things more. My networth has continued to 'explode' along with the market this year, obviously this could go south but for now, it's up-up-and away!

In addition to being $150k richer this year, i've been a holder of crypto for.... 5-6 years that I don't count in my calcs. At one point that account was nearly $400,000, now it's around $150,000(yes down). I am more-or-less convinced that this account alone will FIRE me in the next 5 years. Hell, it even generates income now with DEFI.

Besides that, we never skipped a beat with the pandemic, and continue to load up the usual accounts.

Downside: I find myself becoming less of a saver in 2021, I need to furnish a house, I need a car and I don't think I am going used this time, or cheap (undecided, but my old Volt needs a replacement, thinking maybe a model y?). Maybe that kicks me out of the MMM thinking but hopefully my 7+ years on this board holds some weight.

FIRE: I still have only a loose idea what my true "number" is, something around 1.75->2.00 would basically pay for anything I could think of and then some. This would require a TNW in that 2.00->2.25 range. Again, not decided if I want to wait that long though.

@OurTown -- nice increase! I like looking at your numbers because you and I have had similar progress for the last few years, and you typically update one day before I do.  Gives me a sneak preview.  ")

We're up just shy of $500k for 2021, but $300k of that is in home equity due to the current craziness.

Joining the group as I think I am safe now 

May2021 -  $1,003,397
June 2021 - $1.013,773

Looking for $1.5 mil - I live a simple life and could happily sustain on that. Would most probably try out a few jobs that I have always looked fun..... just for the extra side income. I seem to always steady climbed up by $200 000 per year - so putting in Fire Year 2024.

I found a discrepancy in my sheet this month so there is around 25k of an adjustment down that was made this month (probably to correct one last month): Saved $40,169 and went up by $36,621.

Only tracking personal liquid stash and do not include my wife's savings or any Real Estate equity at this point

Hello @SAfAmBrit!  2024 will be here before you know it.

Another great month for us.  We are FIREd and drawing down, but the stash has been edging up.  Nice!  LNW includes only retirement accounts.  TNW includes 529 plans and house equity.
             
                 LNW   /  TNW
4/1/21     $1,004 / $1,673
5/1/21     $1,027 / $1,737
6/1/21     $1,030 / $1,741
7/1/21     $1,034 / $1,746

I was looking through this thread for my last post, and I can't belive it's been 6 months. 2021 has been crazy, equal to 2020 but in different ways.

I can admit, after hitting 1MM my "care level" has dropped off a bit, I find myself focusing on other things more. My networth has continued to 'explode' along with the market this year, obviously this could go south but for now, it's up-up-and away!

In addition to being $150k richer this year, i've been a holder of crypto for.... 5-6 years that I don't count in my calcs. At one point that account was nearly $400,000, now it's around $150,000(yes down). I am more-or-less convinced that this account alone will FIRE me in the next 5 years. Hell, it even generates income now with DEFI.

Besides that, we never skipped a beat with the pandemic, and continue to load up the usual accounts.

Downside: I find myself becoming less of a saver in 2021, I need to furnish a house, I need a car and I don't think I am going used this time, or cheap (undecided, but my old Volt needs a replacement, thinking maybe a model y?). Maybe that kicks me out of the MMM thinking but hopefully my 7+ years on this board holds some weight.

FIRE: I still have only a loose idea what my true "number" is, something around 1.75->2.00 would basically pay for anything I could think of and then some. This would require a TNW in that 2.00->2.25 range. Again, not decided if I want to wait that long though.

It's ok to start living a little bit now.  You've won this game, it's just padding the base to get to 2, 3, 4 million.  I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer.  But you can see my old posts in this thread.  We've passed 3M in total NW and basically there liquid if we added all the pennies up.  Buy the car.

woohoo!  I'm pulling the plug in August but hubs will continue to work.  Hoping for 1.5M in the next couple of years so he can retire too!

*ETA: it was always the plan for me to retire first since I'm burned way tf out.

12/2017: $500k - graduated the '250-500k thread'
12/2020: $1,000k - hit millionaire status this month. DH left the workplace in June to stay home with our daughter.

Agreed, a Model Y is less than 5% of your net worth. They've been holding their value very well and have extremely low running costs so the financials are reasonable. Also consider some of the cheaper rivals (e.g. the VW ID.4 is 40% cheaper factoring in the federal incentive) or wait for the Hyundai Ioniq 5 / Kia EV6.

Going to wait for new EV credit news, there's as much as $12,500 being offered up soon! Long-time-no-chat as well!

Good idea, there's a decent chance the Teslas will qualify again which would greatly change the calculations / comparisons. Yes, and we're neck and neck again (teaser for my quarterly update)! I think we're within $5k! I'll finalize the numbers this weekend, probably.

2015 YE     $0.81M    $1.23M
2016 YE     $0.96M    $1.40M

2Q2021     $1.82M    $2.46M (+$120K in the quarter)

Of the $190K CDN growth so far this year, $50K came from contributions and $140K came from the market, both of which I am really pleased with.

I adjusted our FIRE number to $2.2M CDN LNW to account for inflation.  We're getting close!

Going to wait for new EV credit news, there's as much as $12,500 being offered up soon! Long-time-no-chat as well!

Good idea, there's a decent chance the Teslas will qualify again which would greatly change the calculations / comparisons. Yes, and we're neck and neck again (teaser for my quarterly update)! I think we're within $5k! I'll finalize the numbers this weekend, probably.

Fairly confident you are going to pass me with my spending spree(s)!

How much longer before you pull the plug man?

2021 JUNE:1.243mm(+34k)

Downside: I find myself becoming less of a saver in 2021, I need to furnish a house, I need a car and I don't think I am going used this time, or cheap (undecided, but my old Volt needs a replacement, thinking maybe a model y?). Maybe that kicks me out of the MMM thinking but hopefully my 7+ years on this board holds some weight.

It's ok to start living a little bit now.  You've won this game, it's just padding the base to get to 2, 3, 4 million.  I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer.  But you can see my old posts in this thread.  We've passed 3M in total NW and basically there liquid if we added all the pennies up.  Buy the car.

I plan to quit full time work before I turn 40 (in 2024). Could be earlier, depending on circumstances, but currently I'm fine with using my time to pad the stache.

                 LNW    /  TNW
EOY 2018 -  877K  / 1.02M
EOY 2019 - 1.12M / 1.275M
EOY 2020 - 1.33M / 1.5M
EQ1 2021 - 1.39M / 1.59M
EQ2 2021 - 1.50M / 1.70M

Well, that was a nice quarter.  I was on the edge of my seat the past 2 days to see if I could hit that 1.5 number and I got it by the skin of my teeth!  The 1.7 TNW was even closer as I cleared that by only about $750 after yesterday's market close. 

I'm pretty much FI now using the 4% rule combined with my small pension that starts at age 60. That's using my average spending over the past 3 years and adding in estimated health insurance costs (unsubsidized silver level ACA plan).  This was the high end of my 'number' when I first started thinking about FIRE 4 years ago.  Now my 'number' has moved a bit higher and I won't really feel financially ready to stop working until ~1.75M, and I'm sure I'll  move that number to 2M when the time comes! 

In the back of my mind (sometimes right up front) I am thinking about how I'll feel when my stash drops 25-30% when these bubbles pop.  It will be ugly.  It really could be different this time, with our government spending money like a pimp who's been told he only has a week to live. If I had kids, I'd feel horrible about the economy we are bequeathing to them by borrowing from their future.

Today I was comparing the price of cheddar per ounce to determine which one to buy (same brand). I don't think I can ever let that go. Reminds me of the saying "pennywise and pound foolish." Not that I think I'm being pound foolish. I'm just giving a fair bit of mental energy to saving a few cents. When my net worth fluctuate by $1000 daily, those few cents don't matter. I can know this logically but there's no way I'm buying the more expensive cheese.

Moved in June.  Endless "one-time" costs right now with the move and getting the new house in order - even more to do/buy than we expected...but I guess that actually should've been expected.  Stash mostly keeping up for now, but our income goes way down in a couple of weeks.  We'll be fine once the old house sells, though.

I joined the $500 to a million thread exactly 3 years ago.  I said then that I never expected to get to $1mil before we retired.  We retired yesterday.  The market has been absolutely crazy the last five years and we have more money than I ever dreamed we'd have.  Since we are now going to start spending instead of saving, we'll see what happens to the stash!  I don't really have any interest in accumulating more, but as long as the market is rolling, I suppose we will.  And when the market stops rolling, we'll be glad we had such a large stash to take the hit.

I found a discrepancy in my sheet this month so there is around 25k of an adjustment down that was made this month (probably to correct one last month): Saved $40,169 and went up by $36,621.

Only tracking personal liquid stash and do not include my wife's savings or any Real Estate equity at this point
Dread, this is an impressive and explosive amount of movement from finding MMM until now.  I thought I did well taking about 3-4 years to go from $250 - $500 and then a little under 4 more from $500 - $1m but you make me a slacker, especially given that our number includes everything and you have potentially massive numbers missing.  Great job!

Five quarters of a million! Last $250k took less than 8 months which is surreal as that is significantly more than our annual gross income.

Thanks! It's sure felt incredibly fast skipping through the milestones here.

As some background: I hit the FIRE jackpot, found MMM while trying to figure out what to do with the raise from a new job opportunity that was about to double my salary but had very low job security. Saving all of it made sense, and then tightening my belt below that catapulted me further (sold all vehicles, dropped nearly all expensive tastes for alcohol / coffee / food etc).

I have been incredibly privileged with this job lasting and with my ability to save (no health issues, compatible wife that was frugal to start with).

I track my own because I was the only one saving for the majority, now I do have about $150k in primary residence equity and my wife has about $100k in her retirement savings (which we agree is all fungible so it's a little odd to not track anymore). She's not sure she'd retire so my stash tracking is against my own, with the caveat I can't imagine quitting my firehose salary job before we have at least the option for us both to walk.

Slow and steady was always my plan, just tripped head first into fast and steady so I'll keep checking my own priviledge.

I should have posted here a while back.
2017-Jan - NW $1.009MM
2018-Jan - NW $1.184MM
2019-Jan - NW $1.302MM
(MM for million)
Started the year ['2019'] 15% LNW, 27 rental units, 350k rental unit debt, 1.3M TNW
Kept rental units estimate near 2013 purchase price on paper (showed higher cap gains %).

Sold 4 units last month and selling 7 units in 3 weeks at current market value (almost double).
Projection: 30% LNW, 16 rental units, 0k debt, 500K LNW, 1.7M TNW
*UPDATE*

2017-Jan - NW $1.009MM
2018-Jan - NW $1.184MM
2019-Jan - NW $1.302MM
2020-Jan - NW $1.769MM
2021-Jan - NW $1.907MM
2021-Jun - NW $1.993MM

Currently: 34% LNW, 18 (+2) rental units, $139k (+2) rental units debt (@ 4%), $678K LNW, $1.993MM TNW
FI (2014) && RE @ 40yrs old (OCT-2019)

Kind of wish I didn't leave the workforce in Oct-2019 just because the whole world seemed to shut down during 2020 w/ CORONA.  But I would have been working at home behind a computer all day.  Instead, I played video games.  I am now booked to do more vacations and trips in 2021.

My Liquid NW isn't as high as others due to my Real-Estate empire (90%+ paid off).  But I have shifted more towards increasing the LNW.

My last post was in January as we were just tipping over the 1M line this year is half over now despite the world turmoil life's been good. 

Fingers crossed for good health, and good markets

First post in this thread.
I have no interest in getting to $2 millions but I think they don't want me to keep posting in the $1 million thread so I'm posting here.
We are on the verge of CoastFI and this is just to update myself.
Lost my job beginning of the year. Got it back mid-April. Wife will quit end of July 31st.

 June 12th 2021     
                  -----         
Rental       230000- Paid off. Housing market is insane here in FL and this is more
                              accurate. We have a month to month lease and we are
                              planning to sell it before the end of the year. Will probably get
                              more than $230k after selling fee. 
Primary     216954- Older version of this house just sold for $430k in 5 days. Newer
                              version of this house will cost you $500k with ZERO upgrade.
                              This house will sell easily for $450k+ but I just had an
                              appraisal done for refinance and it came back as $434k(she's
                              not smart). This value is minus selling fee and mortgage owed.
                             
Assets        45000   
HSA           25447 
IRA-roth     118348

401k         25456   
Wife 401k  31908 
Wife HSA   8523
Wifes IRA   88257
Loan         179766- Other house equity. Loan being paid back @3.5%.

Gold          6000

$1,300,261- Net Worth.

A little updating while the market hit a new high.
My portfolio is slow and steady.
Spent some money on gutters and paying for some future vacations this months.
