Half A Million

December 18th, 2017 at 05:48 pm

We finally hit another retirement milestone today! And it's a big one at half a million dollars. Happy Dancing!!

Exact total at today's close for all of our accounts is $501,160.59. The change to our balance from Friday was $3,450.92. Yep, one day of trading can make that much of a difference in one day. The more you have the bigger a small percentage impact can make on the total balance.

We were at $392,814 at the very end of 2016. I really did want to reach $500K this year. I knew it would have to be a very good year to make it happen. So grateful it did!

Seriously...start investing if you have not yet! It compounds over time. Just 14.5 years ago we had $25K invested for retirement. You will have nothing if you don't start. And it is never to late to start. Something saved is better than zero saved.

    Hard to believe when you think back isn't it? For me, I was unemployed for over a year and started my current job 14 years 3 months ago (almost your time frame) and I had maybe $50,000 invested then. Now I am closing in on $800K. The last 3 years have grown more than my gross salary, which is fabulous to see.

    You'll need to do a year end round up to see how the year worked out. I have mine prepped, just waiting for the year end values to plug in.
