That's a wrap for 2021!  We are up almost $300K for the year which is pretty wild considering we dropped to one income and lowered investments in 2021. 
The plan is to just keep chugging along with investments on auto-pilot the next few years and see what happens.  Cheers, folks!

Saved $0 and went up by $30,323. I used my contributions this month to complete our charitable donations for the year, during accrual we're shooting at 1% of total net worth so donations this year were $15,000 through RC Forward to GiveWell. 

Surprised of the gains this year, and hopefully we can continue the trend for awhile. Wife is on her second (and last?) maternity leave and we can't sell our old condo so we're trying to rent it out starting a week ago. It'll be nice to get that $2500 a month out of the red column but lesson's learned and all that.

@BiggerFishToFI if we convert our CAD to USD we're mighty close, or we could compete in Lira.. it sure is nice to look at that number.

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

NW (approx):

12/2020: $1,000k
Q121: $1,045k
Q221: $1,106k 
Q321: $1,111k

Q421: $1,168k

Always wild to look at the total year, 168k gain for the year. My salary was $120k (NW grew by more than my entire salary, WILD!) and DH remained home to take care of our 1 yo daughter. I opened my first mutual fund when I was 19yo and I'm 31 now, when people say it's amazing how fast compound interest matters they aren't lying. These little green worker dollars went absolutely NUTS this year and I'm forever thankful to have started saving at such a young age in life. Transitioning from DINKs to SI1K was made far far easier by saving for it for a bunch of years that's for sure!

As Omicron fears have raged and challenges abound because of, IMO, people are not thinking intelligently but rather selfishly we are in a period of volatility that I'm not confident has a great way to end.   Thinking we will be back to treading water again for a while where money keeps going in but the balance stays flat at best.

Hello @caracarn , I don't post much on this thread but when I saw a post from a fellow Ohioan, I thought I would reply....take heart because your performance (mkt gains+additional investments) in the second half of the year is definitely better than mine on a relative basis!   I do agree with your assessment that it seems like we're in a choppy but sideways market shift now -- however, the upside of that is (assuming that you are still actively contributing to the stache) you get to invest more dollars over the next year or so at relatively flat market values so that, when the next market run occurs, you'll have more soldiers in the battle!   Good luck!
@arcturus Thanks for emerging to comment on my little post!   Yes, I am still actively investing as my calculations show at least another 2-3 years needed to get to our FIRE point and consider a change.  My wife has said she's going to likely keep doing her work, but maybe cut back and do some pro bono students as we'll have that space, and if she's working anyway I may just keep plugging away but at a much different mental state knowing that if I just start to hate what I'm in the middle of I have the full freedom to walk away and do something else.   Truly life changing position to be in and one I look forward to.   I have a bit of that now as I know we're close and could sustain some stoppage of income if needed, and I like the feeling.

Ended up a bit, and over $250K up over December 2020, so I am amazed.    I really love this layout as it makes visualizing the progress so easy.   

Got a bit of a gut punch, of my own making, about my FIRE situation as I asked for details about health insurance and am starting to realize that I was ignoring a large expenditure that by it's nature means I need to adjust our FIRE number up, which pushes my date out.   Off to go see what that looks like......

Something to consider- I went down to 60% full-time last fall, that still gives me full health insurance. If you can arrange something like that, you could partial-FIRE (or I suppose FI-partial-RE)

Month Year - LNW/TNW
Jan 2019 - $485k/$612k
Jan 2020 - $625k/$741k
Jan 2021 - $871k/$996k
Feb 2021 $1M total net worth!
Jan 2022 - $1.078k/$1.212M

Absolutely ridiculous, this market makes no sense to me with this whole pandemic.. good thing I don't time the market and just use index funds...

Understand how it goes, but have to admit I was a little disappointed that I didn't hit a milestone by 2022. Actually my networth dipped slightly from November, which is when I last checked . Oh well.

Wow impressive numbers!

I'm joining this thread, we are looking to FIRE to a VHCOL and figure we will need about 1.5 (will have a mortgage again), so we may not try to reach all the way to 2 but I'm sure this thread will inspire either way.

It's a tall project to move "up" in location as part of FIRE. A family with whom I was close in my younger days recently announced their retirement. They own houses both in Berkeley and Austin, but--citing the mom's allergies--are opting to sell the Austin house ($500,000 for an opulent 3,400 ft^2) and live in the Bay area house (seven figures, 1,400 ft^2).

I understand the argument for shrinking living space for a retired couple, but there's a ton of cash stuck in that house.

(tracking retirement accounts, taxable accounts and conservative equity in my rental properties, investment land and side businesses)

12/2014    $32,000
12/2016    $64,000 (24 months)
1/2018      $128,000 (25 months)
5/2019      $256,000 (16 months)
11/2020  $512,000 (19 months)
12/2021 $1,024,000 (13 months)
[7/2023 $2,048,000 (18 months)] **TARGET**
--
12/1/2021   $1,068,696.90
1/1/2022     $1,186,159.54
2/1/2022     $1,693,246.96  - HUGE increase due to time of year (portion of what I expect to be a very large bonus paid) plus the closing on 2 raw land projects that have been in the works for some time paid in cash with money not been previously counted as part of the "race".  Next month may graduate me depending on timing of balance of bonus and employer side-401k payment.

Is it strange that--as I've gotten further into this journey--my awareness of my net worth and belief that it is well-measured have deteriorated significantly?

Barely stayed in this thread, back to October numbers.  Losses would have actually been a little higher but my lump sum pension payout jumped up a crazy amount this month which I don't really understand. 
My pension seems like funny money to me so I just ask fidelity how much it would be if I withdrew the whole thing this month (penalties and all) and that's all I count.

Saved $5,750 and went down by $34,190.

Contributions this year will be a little odd as they are claw back payments to loans that were invested rather than straight contributions. Namely this means we'll do very little and then it'll seem like a large lump sum that was actually invested 2 years ago.

This will also be a slow year, with my wife on maternity leave and our old condo not selling at all so we just moved tenants in at a small loss (less than principal payments but I still believe that's a loss).


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

Nah it's like a more you know they more you realize you know nothing kind of thing

Indeed the very concept of Net Worth at a single time doesn't mean very much because it will take us years to fulfill its purpose in our lives, during which it will change.

Agree.  I don't track NW at all, it is meaningless to me.

If someone falls back down to six digits, we should give them extra caviar to tide them over until they can pay back into the system.

It's been 6 months and it's finally time to cap off another year. I have historically put a post in every-single-month but for 2021 I only did this twice. Sitting at 1.374MM and over 1MM invested is fairly comfortable and, I continue to spend more than I have had historically. My budget is probably 2x what it was when I was only a lowly 500k-inare. (Probably was sitting at around $4k before, now maybe $8k, big portion was a new *big* house in 2020)

FIRE continues to be a goal, and I actually passed my original 1MM invested target this year. 40k just simply doesn't cut-it for me anymore, call it lifestyle inflation, actual inflation or just laziness. I really want probably 2x that, and a paid off house, being only 31 now, that should be acheveable at a very young age still. If the market is accomidative, maybe by 35-37. We're talking 2MM invested and a 2.5MM networth, and an option to go much sooner than that, at any time.

I've actually started to reflect on my goals in 2021, which is new for me. Maybe it's all the time i've had with lack of travel!


Here's to a great 2022 to my MMM friends (I know im posting this a little late, sorry!)

For some reason I've never done one of these, but here we are-exactly one year to the day from when we hit 1M invested, so-I guess let's check the progress.
2/9/21 $1004483
2/9/22 $1249290 (+244807)

Holy cow! Thanks bull market and compound interest. We cracked the 100k combined income first in 2016, and this year we made it to 150k. Still working on convincing my husband that we are closer to FIRE than he thinks :)

If that freaks you out, start tracking the number of shares you own instead.

Apparently, I forgot to post for a couple of months (but I didn't forget to track). I think this post catches me up.  Still here (barely) and not planning to leave!!  We've had more down months than up months since we retired, but adding my 2021 total to my list and reviewing the growth reminds me that we are still in phenomenal shape and have WAY more money that I dreamed we have at this point in our lives.

I think the pain mostly comes from not contributing (all the posts re. buying stocks on sale! remind me that I'm not buying stocks any more).  Staying the course for now.  And if the time comes to change the course, what that means for me is decreasing or stopping withdrawals from the stash, not changing my investments.  I'm fine with those for the long term.

1/1/22: $1.972M / 2.252M
2/1/22: $1.916M / 2.207M
3/1/22: $1.900M / 2.189M

Still going in the wrong direction.
If that freaks you out, start tracking the number of shares you own instead.

Nah, no freakouts here.  I follow a written IPS and have invested consistently through far worse.  Just would be nice to hit that next milestone since I came tantalizingly close in early Jan.  Now that I'm coast-FI the contributions don't make much of a difference, so it's mostly a waiting game.

Still here in this race by the skin of my teeth.  Next month is bonus month so I'm hoping the sale lasts until then when I'll max both IRAs for the year.

Still down, but that just means stocks are on sale!  I have a bonus coming next week, and got a raise, so that should help me crawl out of this hole.

We saved about $20k this past month and our investments only went up $11k, lol. I guess I can just look at it as accumulating more shares than we could have in December.

Pretty happy with how things are holding.   Just staying the course.   This is the worst time to lock in your losses, so just look the other way and trust the process.
