@3Mer, it's eerie how similar our trajectory was. I got into the $500k club 2 months after you and we are within $1k of each other today =D

Hello everyone! Excited to be here. Tracking only investments in this thread. The $250k-500k race took me 2.5 years. I estimate this one taking me around 4 years if we can keep up our current investments and the markets are friendly. Neither of me or my partner expect much in the way of raises or bonuses in 2021, but are looking at some side hustle options (and let's be honest, we could probably optimize a bit more) to try to stash away a bit more!

Welcome @hudsoncat

And congrats to @tips^up on graduating!

01/12/20 £746008

Thats without or 2020 div which will be £30k, that should arrive towards the end of this week.

Assuming everything stays even then that will put us around 780-785k on 1st Jan.

It amazes me every year just how much the pot grows by.  Our "number" is 850k so we are rapidly closing in.

Holy crap. I think I graduated today.

It's only by about $1.7k and I'm sure I'll be back, but . . . wow. A decade in the making. Notably, up from 616k on 23 March 2020 . . . talk about volatility. I knew it was close, but that escalated quickly. Not sure how to feel about it right now.

Welcome new folks - theres names I recognize from the 250-500 thread!!
Well kids - it starts to go fast at this stage. You all get a big amount to work for you instead of just contributing your money.

Theres folks here hitting 100 to 200 k a year.. unreal numbers considering where we came from.

Good luck and I hope you aren't here too long!!

Welcome new folks - theres names I recognize from the 250-500 thread!!
Well kids - it starts to go fast at this stage. You all get a big amount to work for you instead of just contributing your money.

Theres folks here hitting 100 to 200 k a year.. unreal numbers considering where we came from.

Good luck and I hope you aren't here too long!!

Assuming of course the market keeps going up :-)

If it goes down 10% a year most of us will be here a looong time :-)

Pretty good hop up.  We are getting nearly 100% of our pay back from my employer from our pay cuts earlier this year, but they announced a pay back plan in August when they took pay back to normal in September.  Was not to be payed back until after the end of the year if we hit goals, but things went so well they not only opted to pay nearly 100% back but also are doing it before the end of the year so that will help the December number as I get about 5-6 months of payback.  Will be a few thousand dollars for sure.   Think it not likely to cross $1 million by the end of the month but hopeful that 2021 will be the year.

@caracarn I'm on book 11 now.  I have to take a breath after a couple of days and read something else.  Looking forward to the Last Battle.

I was a bit worried with Sanderson taking over the writing but he did a great job.  I had stopped reading at Book 8 when they originally came out and never picked them up again after Jordan died, but decided to give it a go recently.  Having had such a break I started at the beginning and read all books and the prequel in about 3 years.  I am waiting with baited breath for Amazon to begin filming the Wheel of Time after the pandemic makes it safe to do so.  I expect this to outpace Game of Thrones as I have always found this series much more cohesive.  I know several people who detest GoT treatment/portrayal of women and WoT does not have those issues, so I believe the audience appeal will be much broader.

I shy away from posting details hence not being active in this group. But a pleasant shock prompted me to search for 2 comma club threads.

I last checked my numbers in early summer and I figured I would reach the 2 comma mark at the end of 2021.  Well, just checked a couple of days ago and if the nutty market continues its merry way, I'll likely get there sometime in 1Q2021.  Crazy.  Tell myself it's all paper gains and not to get too excited...

Edit to add: I don't own any property, not even a car.  So it's all market/cash.

November 11, 2020:  $527,000
December 11, 2020:  $607,796 (501,797 euros). This month's total is more accurate than last month's, because I actually did the euro conversions and the math with a calculator instead of just spitballing it.  I STILL don't have an answer from the government about how much taxes they want for 2019, but I don't think it's going to bust my butt back down under 500K DOLLARS.

Usually I have been focused on net worth (about 750000), to my great surprise I realized we have about $950,000 assets working for us. So close to a million!
I only started focusing on finances and investments around 2017! I am so proud of our achievements :-)

Aw, this thread makes me so happy for everyone...

We just made it! 

We got a million in net worth a while ago, but had to wait a bit to get a million in cash.  I usually only check our numbers once per month, but figured I better check now b/c we are so close (and it could slip back down before 1 January if the market takes a dive over the holidays).

Roughly 1,010,000 as of today!  My husband grew up poor in a family where most members didn't even graduate high school, let alone get college degrees or save any money.  He is still astounded that this has happened, even after 20 years of investing LOL.

I'm in! Currently at $574 investible assets.

Haven't been adding much lately, but the stock market growth pushed us over $600K. About to really start piling it on this year. Our goal is to get up to $700K before 2018. Good luck all!

Well the market certainly helped out a lot this past year. We ended up at $794K on 1 Jan. Beat our goal by a healthy margin! It really is amazing how the market can supercharge your savings with compound interest. I think it was around $500 that I really saw it take over and begin overwhelming my savings.

Just a few weeks into 2018 and we are up to $819K. I haven't added any of my own savings in yet this year either. Amazing. (I suppose it can be just as amazing going the other way too!)

Hey everyone. Itís been a while but I think I finally count myself as graduated. Went over the 2 comma club in Jan of this year. Then I fell below it... way below it. But I held on and am now sitting comfortably over $1.2m. I consider my wife a millionaire and now itís time for me to get there too! Good luck everyone!

NW:
April 2017: 175k
April 2018: 333k
April 2019: 400k
February 2020: 515k
August 2020: 602k (415k invested/$50k cash)
December 2020: 669k (478k invested)

Investments grew well since August and we'll be adding 12k to IRAs on Jan 4. Closing in on half million invested soon, which is exciting.  Refinancing the mortgage currently and that will free up some cash flow for more investing.

Today is bonus day which I lovingly call jelly of the month club. I am not expecting as much this year because we were shut down for several weeks in the spring.  I did not just put a down payment on a pool so we should be okay with whatever I get.

WE DID IT!. It's been A YEAR. Husband got laid off 5 weeks before our baby girl was born in July, we ended up moving for my job selling our condo at a loss. But we're here now, and it feels good!

What will I do to splurge? Replace my Vans that have a hole in the heel with a new $30 pair of shoes since it's starting to snow here in MI now and I don't need snow in my shoe on my morning walk :)

@3Mer, it's eerie how similar our trajectory was. I got into the $500k club 2 months after you and we are within $1k of each other today =D
