If you have only 500k sitting in an account somewhere you are pretty loaded, imo.

I'm inching closer to the $900k mark ($885k  today) and the closer it gets, the slower it feels (narrator: *it's not slow*).

Will it change anything? Nope. Is it an important milestone? Nope. I'm still 8 years away from my RE number, and I know that unless the market tanks, it will happen in September anyway when I get my bonus.

BUT I STILL WATCH IT LIKE A HAWK.

Anyone else obsessing over stupid meaningless milestone or am I the only crazy one?

OK, i'm going out for a run.

Help.

You're in the majority.
$1 million is an important milestone and I was obsessing over it too.
After you cross it, it's like eh whatever, you're just waiting for RE after that.

I feel like 80% of the posters recently are up over $900K or otherwise on the cusp of graduating. Good for yall! (and to those with $1M+, get the hell outta here)

But where are the $500K and $600K peeps? Who's going to be with me and the other peasants for the next 2-3 years?? Holla!

Present! I'll be here....for a lot more than 2 or 3 years. Can't sack it away as well working PT. Oh well. Somebody's got to sweep the floors around here with all the speedy foot traffic going on. :)

Peasants unite! I'll be here for a little while too :)

Hit 634,262.29 last month after a 10,790.13 gain!

I'm in! I just hit $500k this month, which I posted in the previous thread. So my next monthly update will be here.

Yay! Welcome!

I've been following this thread for a long time. I have always followed one thread above where I am at the moment, it gives me inspiration. It's like one side of my brain saying to the other side, "See? These people are just like you. They just have more zeros."

Don't forget me!

Just got to $503k on Aug 1.
Will probably be here awhile. Unless the market continues the same trajectory as the last couple of years.

I've been feeling the lack of a spreadsheet in this challenge!

Here we go:

thanks @tarheeldan . I haven't been tracking anything but current networth so I don't have great historical but I filled in the best I could and this will let me do that going forward.

Point of clarification. I see networth used on the spreadsheet labels. Are you all tracking networth? I'm tracking my invested assets. I have ~40k in cash and 185k house equity I'm not including. I need to jump over to 1m+ plus in that case

This is all for your own pleasure and humblebrag so everyone does it how it makes the most sense for them.  Some do TNW, some market equities only, others total investable assets including rental real estate or other.  It is for your own reference so how you track is up to you.   As for me, I include all investable assets including rental real estate equity but separate out the market equities.  I have two long-term targets, one for RE equity and another for market equities.

Yep, I think everyone just tracks what they care to track. It's more of a challenge against yourself more than a challenge against others, so if we're not all apples to apples around here, it makes little difference, really.

Personally, I track what I consider to be my wife and I's net worth (so retirement accounts, taxable investments, cash accounts, home equity, etc) but I don't include stuff like college funds (I consider that to be my kiddos' money) or our checking account (negligible impact, and fluctuates a lot). When we had debt, like student loans or credit cards, I obviously backed that out from the assets, but now we're debt free other than our home.

I "count" investments and cash as my entry into this race, but keep track of total net worth for fun

Cool. I like to do invested assets since that's controlling the 4% SWR number. Though I have no set in stone FIRE number or date.

I don't at all trust where we're at, but technically above the number, so I figured I'd post. No daycare or student loan costs due to covid have been a big help to cashflow. Have been able to auto-draft 1k weekly into vanguard brokerage. 2nd daughter due next month.

@pharmmm HOLY MOLEY!!!

You came a year ago, introduced yourself once, then peaced out exactly a year later after having saved enough to have your invested assets grow $500k in 12 months!!! That's freaking EPIC! Congrats! You both are ready to retire without even having paid off your student loans lol

Haha, thank you! I knew I made that first post, and I knew I had the 1m goal, but life happened and I just never made it back to update along the way. Kept up my own personal speadsheet every month, and just saved it up for one data dump. Some of the 70k jump months were bananas, still doesn't seem real. Going to wait until the dust settles and get comfortable with the idea of M status to introduce myself in the 1M-?? thread.

I think my personal capital data got messed up so I'm updating the numbers.  Was briefly over 1M at the beginning of May and have been grinding back up towards that mark while having some expenses come up.  We have a little more cushion now but we are still at the mercy of the markets.

Alright my fellow mustachians, I think I'm going to call it as we are sitting at just over 1.1M now.  See you all on the other side!

01/06/21 £877243
01/07/21 £907604
01/08/21 £922728
01/09/21 £941531

My excel sheet tells me that I am exactly 1 year from FIRE now.  If the market continues to perform I think it could be May/June 22.. I cant quite get my head around a TNW increase of £150,000 in 8 months.

Hello! I became a sixhundredthousandaire today and am looking for someplace to crow about it so I thought I would join up here! Not sure if I’m going to make a million before I peace out but this looked like the closest race category for me. Happy to be here!!

If the markets behave it will take us just under 2 years to go from $500K to $1M.  Fingers crossed!

Hopefully it will happen this week!! Congrats, great progress. I also reached $500k in 11/2019 but COVID took that away. Now I'm about $100k behind you!

A bit more vacation spending was incurred, but that's the last of it until spring. Being up about $170K in a year is crazy, and I don't expect that pace to continue.

Congrats everyone. I'm targeting $33k more in savings this year. Just gotta get a few thousand in portfolio growth to close out this race.

11/30/19: $496k

Just curious, why did you set up the speadsheet to track since January and not since $500k? I think it would much more interesting to see and compare full progress.

August 2021 - Just hit $750k in investments… 3/4 of the way to 7 figures!

Joining the ranks of you folks chasing that seven-figure milestone! (To keep my journey consistent, I’m going to be following based on my personal investments / retirement accounts—separate from the wife's—and not counting the home value).

This weekend, April 2021, I hit a major milestone: $700k at 37-years-old.

Looking back at notes from ‘Race from 250 to 500k!’, here’s a brief recap:
*June 2010 - Finish grad school, 26 y/o, $90k+ in debt; new job at $40k/year
*May 2015 - (I think) - First crossed $100k at 31 y/o
*January 2018 - Passed the $250k mark
*April 2019 - Hit $312.5k
*June 2019 - 1/3 of the way to $1M
*February 2020 - Hit $400k
*November 2020 - Eclipsed $500k (and finished the ‘Race from 250 to $500k!’)

Didn’t make the sheet, but I’m sure it can be edited to do so.
