Hey all! Graduated to this group last month :) I don't really trust that I'll stay above 500k since nothing about this year makes sense.

I'm embarrassed to say how much I enjoyed switching this over to a table, AND how long it took me to do it!


Same here--table so much easier. Tho I have to add two columns to mine now. ugh.

(I joke--didn't take that long)

December$292,942$312,281$431,458$557,941$575,877$760,501--

So the trend continues up although I stayed positive mainly because of a huge leap in home value that added about $25K in value according to Zillow that is how Personal Capital tracks this within its system.  So my investments were down, but thus far into October most of that has recovered as I am up about $20K more from the September number.

My history is quoted below, but we just got cleared to close on a cash out refi. The house appraised way higher than anticipated, so NW today is 1.024M! That includes 92K of equity still in the house. That 500K to 1M went FAST, more than three years faster than anticipated!

I just graduated to this thread. I was racing from 250K to 500K and just crossed that threshold (link below).

I go by investable assets, currently $501,463. (Home equity is about 200K, so call it 700K TNW.)

A bit of history:

1/1/12 125K
1/1/13 175K
1/1/14 214K
1/1/15 205K
1/1/16 449K
*home addition*
1/1/18 447K
10/1/18 500K

And a bit of projection (assumptions include 80K of education expense in about 4 years, 3% real returns, and saving $7K/mo)...

1/1/20 627K
1/1/21 731K
1/1/22 839K
1/1/23 950K (20K special expense)
1/1/24 1.04M (20K special expense)
1/1/25 1.12M (20K special expense)
1/1/26 1.3M (20K special expense)

Things were looking pretty good until this week. Saved $20,026.12 and went down $404. At this point, my only gains are dividends on my investments, but that appears to be due to my contributions being so recent (a privilege afforded by my cushy paying job).

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

for a brief second (1 day) I did blip up above the 1 million mark but just as fast as I saw that extra zero it was gone again.    I'd love to see more gains but I fear we are in this for a while to come.  Oh well....I guess it's a buying opportunity.

Market downturn hasn't been great, but our company stock is at an all-time high. I'm currently overweighted in that so I plan on selling a bunch and dumping it into VTSAX tomorrow when the trading window opens.

Another great month, not totally unexpected as I got my work bonus as well as unused vacation payout. I don't really have easy access (ok, I'm too lazy to reset my passwords) to my HSA so I've sort of locked that account at $20k in my calculations. With that in mind we are at $646k this month.

October was an interesting month with some significant expenses, namely purchasing a brand new vehicle for cash. With that purchase and the market retreating somewhat we ended up at $632k. I'm actually quite happy with that because we won't have any more contributions anymore now that I've mini-retired and we live off my wife's pension.

MADE IT!  No clue on horizon, though I have been trying to double this number every 2 years or so, so setting a goal of 12/2022 to graduate.

(tracking retirement accounts, cash accounts and conservative equity in my rental properties 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)
[12]/2020  $512,000 [20 months?]

Based on my reading of other people's posts, we were up in October until the end.  I don't know, I only look at the end of the month and we are down.  Not too much, but down, nonetheless.  Still doesn't affect our plans.  Retirement in 8 months, baby!!!

I get to move over here from the 250 - 500k race! Hi everyone!

Dec '19: $466k
Jan '20: $475k
Feb '20: $471k (market impact despite +$20k RSUs vesting)
Mar '20: $538k (bonus!)

I'm holding my nose and DCA'ing the bonus into the market even though I think we have more drops ahead of us. I wrote down a commitment that I must put it all in by the end of March. It's all going into VTSAX and VTIAX since my bonds are way over my AA with the recent market drops.

Totals above are net worth from mint and do not include primary residence (mortgage about 1/2 paid off, but I've stopped overpaying in favor of investing after finding these forums).

Well holding my nose and DCAing in March turned out to be exactly the right move! This year has been a wild ride.

Liquid net worth on mint:
Apr ‘20: $528k
May ‘20: $539k
Jun ‘20: $593k
Jul ‘20: $598k
Aug ‘20: $631k
Sep ‘20: $621k
Oct ‘20: $638k
Nov ‘20: $671k (got a check back from a speculative investment that folded in the pandemic, just happy to get anything back. 2H 2019 was a bad time to get into the upscale class-based gym business ‘\_@_/‘)

I realized in July that I can do megabackdoor Roth so started diverting the max I could to post-tax 401k. With the lifestyle change forced by the pandemic I hardly notice the reduction coming in and am still moving amounts to taxable at about the same rate as before.

Feeling fairly crushed by my job but seeing an end to the tunnel is so motivating. I’m making some changes (eg boundary enforcing) to try to make work more manageable while I’m still here, but if I can save like this for even 2-3 more years I could be in a very cushy ~6 year coast fire situation in a career path where well-paid consulting ~4 months a year should be a real option.

Haha. As long as I don't look I can keep the millionaire status, right? The SP500 has pulled back a bit from the morning spike so it's gonna be close...

I am joining this thread. Household net worth, USD.

$0-100k took 17 months.
$100k-250k took 23 months.
$250k-500k took 21 months.
I suspect the next half million will take three to four years. A lot will depend on market performance, one way or the other.
Well I was right, just over three years (37 months and change)

10/1/2017 - 502k
1/1/2018 - 544k
4/1/2018 - 559k
7/1/2018 - 604k
10/1/2018 - 640k
1/1/2019 - 608k
4/1/2019 - 710k
7/1/2019 - 754k
10/1/2019 - 780k
1/1/2020 - 853k
4/1/2020 - 726k
7/1/2020 - 876k
10/1/2020 - 956k
11/9/2020 - 1,004k

Woohoo!

I may be with you all only temporarily once I get my tax bill (long story--I've been waiting for MONTHS for the government to tell me how much they think I owe), but it looks like I just hit 527K so here I am.  Not bad for a single mother of 5 with an ex who is a HUGE financial drain.  I still need to get my spending in check, though.  If the dollar keeps falling, it might make sense to just throw money at the mortgage (which is in euros).
