I joined MMM October 2018. I had 350K in my 401k and 30K in cc debt. I was always broke. Packages came in the mail every single day but I couldn't figure out why we were always broke.

Today we have 900K invested and no cc debt.  It is only bc of MMM. Seriously. This site and forum has saved my family.  Thank you.

Great Post!!! Way to go.

 Sold the house and invested most of the proceeds. For these tracking threads I only count the stuff that's linked to my Mint account. If I count the husband's we are just over 1 million.

I think I'm graduating myself to the next gauntlet (though I also am wanting LNW to be above the million mark too).

Slow and steady progress. Vacations are 90% paid for already; this is shaping up to be a nice summer. We'll get $500 in tax credits for July-Dec but will likely just pour that into the kiddos' college funds (not included in net worth number).

Hi all!

Excited to join this race, these posts have been so inspiring for me! All my assets are liquid (I'm a renter). Only debt is my $11k car loan that I'm desperately fighting with myself not to pay off early.

I'm a US immigrant since 2012 and started investing/saving seriously in 2015. SINK, fairly high income, HCOL. Expecting to reach $1M in 2023.

Invested assets, long term savings and debts:

12/31/14    $51,962.23
12/31/15    $92,762.33
12/31/16    $163,900.00
12/31/17    $251,415.07
12/31/18    $330,093.64 - new job, nice retention bonus from previous job
12/31/19    $519,878.70 - pension lump sum after leaving old job (rolled into 401k)
12/31/20    $714,958.33

---

01/31/21    $732,701.46
02/28/21    $752,893.42
03/31/21    $768,088.25 - maxed out 401k
04/30/21    $812,226.27
05/31/21    $818,349.97
06/30/21    $845,008.30

I'll echo @pasadenafr 's sentiments - we're excited to be joining this race, and continue to be inspired by everyone's progress!

1/01/21 - $400,149
2/14/21 - $427,486 (+$27,337)
3/01/21 - $443,490 (+$43,341)
3/19/21 - $451,670 (+$51,521)
3/31/21 - $458,005 (+$57,856)
4/15/21 - $470,187 (+$70,038)
4/30/21 - $475,833 (+$75,684)
5/15/21 - $486,446 (+$86,297)
5/28/21 - $497,565 (+$97,416)

@Finwiz i think since we both graduated the 250-500 race the same month we should race to $1,000,000. you have an ambitious goal of 2 years. It might be hard to keep up!

at 8% returns we are looking more like January 2025

Lets do it! Its definitely an ambitious, highly aggressive goal. More realistically we're looking at sometime between December 2023 to July 2024 given that I doubt we can keep up the sort of pace we've had so far this year (we're on pace to increase NW by ~$234,000 this year which is insane).

To hit it in 2 years, we'd need to save about $175,000/year at 8% returns. To make it in2.5 years we'd need to save about $130,000/year at 8% returns. We'll see - for now just keep chugging along and hope the career track continues in the right direction.

We need to add @monarda and @nickelwise to the race, the also graduated in June/July

As of YESTERDAY, I have graduated into this thread! 

July 2018: $522k

I've been hovering around 498-502 for a few weeks now depending on what's going on in the market from day-to-day, but yesterday I received a $20k midyear bonus along with my regular paycheck, so I think I am now comfortably established in the half million+ zone, hopefully for good!

Approximately 3 years later, I am close to graduating out of this thread. :) I got a divorce that took about a $150k hit out of my stash, quit my high-paying job and took a 6 month sabbatical, and bought a house in a HCOL city -- but man did that stock market go up anyway! I'm sitting at around $945k at the moment, and think I'll hit $1M by this time next year if not sooner.

It seems like a lot of people are getting close to $1 million. If you're anxious to cover that final mile, you can take a sizable position in something highly volatile.

Hey whatís going on everyone? Iím staking my claim here on the way to 1M. I tallied up all my liquid cash and investments this weekend and Iím at $855,000.

My wife and I both expect to work from home for the foreseeable future so our savings rate should be pretty stellar for 2021. As long as we donít see an extended period of negative returns, we should cross the 1M mark within 12 months.

Total FIRE savings goal is 1.8-2M which I hope to see in 5-7 years. (Currently early 40ís).

I havenít posted in a while and I stopped checking my balances so often for my own sanity, but decided to tally up my number this weekend and looks like I crossed the 1M mark in the past week.

As of 7/23 cash and investments totaled $1,010,510.

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.

Thanks to a previous mathematical error on my part, a good stock market (for now), the resolution of my tax situation, and clients paying before year-end, I've rocketed past 500K in both euros and dollars, so drum roll please:

January 4, 2020:  564,565 in euros/692,608 in dollars.

The dollar is just limping along and I'm keeping my fingers crossed for some improvement in 2021 but am not optimistic on that front.  Next stop 750K in dollars because that'll mean I'm halfway through this stage.  Will have to have a good year for that to happen.

I have officially made it to 750K in dollars.

March 5, 2021:  642,068 in euros/764,565 in dollars!  March will probably be a good month too.  Next stop 900K.

Sadface:  I am down to $720,480.03 thanks to some long-overdue home repairs and the purchase of a wreck of a (different) house to renovate and sell.  That said, I have 2 possible large infusions by the end of 2021, and the renovation should be done within a few months, so if the strong housing market in my area continues, that could be a nice profit as well.  If even 1 of these 3 things works out, I'll be back on track.  We shall see.  Being more than halfway in the race from 500-1M was a psychological boost, but oh well.

Every month I'm disappointed when I get my number for this thread, until I see last month's posting and I'm always pleasantly surprised. I dialed back on investments to build up more cash reserves and am somehow still up a significant amount. I'll need a new heroin when the market goes down or flat again!

Wild to save this much all the time. Spent most of high school working after school, doubles on weekends and all summer. By the end of high school I had a paid off $10k car and around $10k in the bank which seemed like a fortune. All that work, all those days being pissed off about working... now I can save that much in a month, every month. Then the depression in college and after graduation - so much debt, no job, the feeling of hopelessness. All of that is a distant memory now, but spent so many days feeling like I made a mistake. Crazy how things change - Now I could pay for a new college degree every year and then some. All of those negative feelings, all a waste. Hindsight is 20/20 I suppose. Now I fight the feeling of meaningless repetition and fulfillment. Perhaps destine to never be satisfied. One day I will look back on this time with the same feelings of waste. Once FI the grind to FI, the feelings of meaninglessness, all for nothing.

Try to enjoy it.
