We are Millionaires!

December 30th, 2017 at 04:54 pm

I downloaded all of the closing prices of our investments last night and updated our portfolio spreadsheet.

Our portfolio balance now stands at:


That's the first time we've cracked the $1 million mark.

I know that number is constantly changing. Heck, it's changed since I did it last night because I paid a couple of bills this morning, but it's still a cool milestone to have reached.

Note that this is not net worth. Our NW crossed the $1 million mark a while ago because we have over 200K equity in our house. This is just counting actual financial assets: cash, stocks, bonds, and mutual funds.

We're not ready for retirement yet but we're making good progress. We should be in good shape when the time comes.

Happy New Year to all! I hope 2018 brings health, peace, and prosperity for everyone.
