Posting to keep track.
June last year was at 520k invested.
Started from zero in 2015.
Now I am at 280k invested and 505k total net worth.
Looking forward to get to 1 MM net worth and then to 1MM invested...

528k TNW, 275k invested.

Since my first post spent 10k on repairing some things around the house and spent around 2.5k usd on a trip plus some appliances.
House Zestimate went up...

Hi All,

Graduated from the 250-500k club back in June 18 but waited a while to join this one until it seemed like it would stick. Look forward to seeing how I do on this race - alot of the previous gains came about from getting married and combining assets.
Assets include primary residence, rental property, and investment portfolio. Liabilities are two mortgages.

                        Assets   Liabilities   Net Worth
July 2018            $939k        -$433k         $505k
August 2018        $956k        -$431k         $525k
September 2018  $975k        -$435k         $539k
October 2018       $953k        -$435k        $518k
November 2018    $962k        -$429k        $533k
December 2018    $962k        -$427k        $534k
January  2019      $977k        -$425k        $552k
February 2019      $1004k      -$428k        $576k
March 2019          $1024k      -$424k        $600k
April 2019             $1049k      -$427k        $622k

Looks like about a year to go from $500-600k. I was initially house heavy (1 primary + 1 investment), so nice to see the liquid portion of Net Worth continuing to ramp up.
May 2019             $1051k      -$423k        $628k (+6k)
Slightly up mostly due to putting in money in both retirement and taxable. Happy to see it was up with Mr. Market slightly down - this is most likely due to the stock market being a smaller portion of my net worth than most others here.
A few months since last updated
Dec 2019             $1085k      -$421k        $664k(+6k/mth )
It's been a little while since I last posted, while I don't think it's a permanent change, I am excited to have have graduated this race!! Net worth is almost evenly split between primary residence and investment portfolio - so still some work to do. But it's a cool milestone :)
May 2021             $1,195k      -$195k        ($1M )

Eh, not much movement this month. We've paid for a decent amount of our upcoming trips, so minimal net worth movement isn't all that unexpected. We're hitting both New York and California this summer, so absolutely no regrets on vacation $$$ after not having a real vacation in 2.5 years.

Currently on gardening leave - paid employment will end in July and a severance will be paid. It may well leave me short of the double comma club in net worth.... but I'll be off the hamster wheel!
Also my net worth has trebled since my divorce settlement in Nov 2017 - and after paying off the ex's mortgage and child support etc etc during the last 3 1/2 years. I'm still paying Alimony but thats fixed and finite.
Did not think the net would increase this fast..

Well, look at that.  It's the two comma club.  I don't really know what to do with this information.  I've been in this thread for a long time.

Feeling really, really lucky.  Five years ago, we decided to get ready to retire. Since then, the market has gone absolutely crazy.  I had hoped/planned to have $600,000 by this time. Now we are rich beyond our wildest dreams.

Well, look at that.  It's the two comma club.  I don't really know what to do with this information.  I've been in this thread for a long time.

Feeling really, really lucky.  Five years ago, we decided to get ready to retire. Since then, the market has gone absolutely crazy.  I had hoped/planned to have $600,000 by this time. Now we are rich beyond our wildest dreams.

Yay! Congrats, Ladychips!

Well done, Ladychips! I know, it's a kind of surreal feeling, isn't it?
We took our first step  (toe over the line) into the two comma club in the height of the pandemic. That felt extra surreal.  Congrats!

@Steeze, welcome fellow topper of tops.

Thanks!

Definitely pretty toppy, with CAPE @ +\- 37 and PE @ 44 !! I am expecting to drop out once or twice before we are done

Would be nice to hit 1M at a CAPE and PE closer to 20-25

Thanks @Trifele and @Ladychips

I will stay here to chase 1 mil in investments. I have never added SS / Pension / Work Stocks - I wanted to chase on the basis I started.

Investment only - $604,599
Cash - $39,000
House - $360,000 (Paid off in full and under estimated value)

That’s a major reason why we have held our house value at a conservative number (what we paid for it 4 years ago). Those swings in RE can be wild.

Seems like a good approach. I keep going back to what the heck can I do with this unreal/bizarre "equity" and the answer I keep coming back to is ... Well, besides move, not much.

We won't be paying off the loan anytime soon, and unlikely looking at a move, so the numbers I go back to are the liquid assets. Fun to include them and see what raises faster/is bigger, the house or the liquid assets. Right now the liquid assets are winning and outpacing the rise in house value over the last 3 years. We'll see how the next three go 😎

@Nick_Miller Thanks - its been interesting!
Gardening leave is the English term for being paid not to work! I'm fully paid between now and the beginning of July when I officially end work and get my severance.
Its enabled me to spend nearly a month in England to assist my father with my mother who has dementia. from the frying pan....

Glad to end the month in the green! Had a few additional expenses including some weekend Airbnb rentals now that we’re allowed to travel locally. Have written off any international travel this year, going to spend time and effort declutterng the house and doing home improvements so we can rent it out next year to help fund our slow travel plans.

Not increased the value of my property this qtr as its just getting crazy now and I dont trust if I use my usual sources that its actually not going to come down again so will re-visit in Q3 and split the difference probably just to keep on the side of caution.

It seems weird to think I'm closer to 1 million than I am to half a million.  I finally got to take a trip home this month to see family since we're all vaccinated and it was great to see them after such a long wait.

No real gains this month due to several expenses to include tax bill and some home repairs/upgrades. (ETA: my original calculations left out a new investment; adding it in and suddenly the month looks a lot better)!

So exciting to read all the graduates (CONGRATS!) and new folks (Welcome!) in the race this morning!

Investments only as always. I'm feeing like we are in a bit of a savings rut. But I'm not sure it's a bad thing. Most of the savings is automated as is much of our spending TBH. We just keep on keeping on. Watching the money (hopefully) continue to grow.

Pretty flat this month due to a pretty hefty tax payment. Doing quarterly estimated payments this year to hopefully avoid that on the 2021 taxes!

Paid off my solar loan!

When I started tracking NW, my goal was 600k by 40yo and that seemed reasonable, with 1 mil as a seemingly-impossible potential stretch goal. I'm spitting distance from it at 37, so maybe $1 mil by 40 isn't that impossible after all!

I haven't updated this thread since Feb since I was blissfully unaware of finances and enjoying maternity leave with my new LO.  Investments went a little bonkers while I wasn't paying attention.  My household also went from DINKs to OIOK (DH is now a SAHD) so savings rate is going to go down now that our income is about half what is was.  Worth it though :)

Pretty spendy month due to a large tax payment combined with other extravagant spending. That being said, I upped our real estate equity by 25k and we are now Networth Millionaires! Still lagging the Zestimate by ~20%, slowly adding equity chunk by chunk as real estate continues to skyrocket. Current projections have us graduating this thread in invested assets in December this year, assuming a 7% average annual return.

Wow, a phone plan for fifteen bucks!
