Re: Your Current Net Worth

Yep

That and the fact that -step daughter in room - has not yet instructed me how to scan and post my ugly mug.

Sigh - my old webtv was sooooo simple - even I had trouble screwing it up.

Don't worry. I was once at that level too. I remember it well. I used to say, "I wonder what it will feel like to hit $100K?"

Re: Your Current Net Worth

OK, I voted. I didn't include my residence, as it is a cardboard box in the middle of the road. If one of you guys buy a big refrigerator, please save the box for me. I'd like to add-on that shop I've always wanted.

Cardboard box!
Luxury.

get up at six o'clock in the morning, clean the bag, eat a crust of stale bread, go to work down mill for
fourteen hours a day, week in, week out. When we got home, our Dad would thrash us to sleep with his belt!"

Unclemick,

For some reason I have you pegged as "Frank Barone", from Everyone Loves Raymond. Am I close?

1. Frank is better looking.

I think the "net worth" question should have been defined in this poll as either:

1. What is your net worth including your residence?

2. What is your net worth not including your residence?

Re: Your Current Net Worth

I did not use the Cola pension that I will be collecting when I voted. (25xpension amt) That makes a substantial difference, so once again I screwed up the poll. Sorry.

Thanks. That's where I'm at right now. I think I know how I'll feel when I hit $100K: still not yet rich enough to change my life.

Really, it does change your life. You will know that if you have problems at work, or illness, or whatever, you won't have to scramble around looking for loans. You will know that if you see a good opportunity in the job market, but it requires a bit of risk, you can still entertain the idea.

You will know that you are the kind of person that can put together this amount of money.

And you will know that it will only get easier as time goes on to achieve future higher savings and investment goals.

All in all, a worthy goal.

I'm bumping this poll since we've had a couple new-comers in the $5M+ range join us recently.

Re: Your Current Net Worth

The more I look at this the more I want to alter the higher incrementals - I would have to reset the counts if I do this and we would have to revote - maybe our net worth has changed anyway? - is it worth doing? and what increments would we like to see?

Re: Your Current Net Worth

I have a good net worth. I continue to work because I am concerned about healthcare costs, inflation, stock market returns and how long I will live. Maybe there is something else too that I have not thought of yet.

I agree, it's even affecting my dreams. I am now debt free and have a chunk of change in various accounts. I have a pretty secure job and with a 5% return along with continued savings should hit my magic number in seven years. I remember being in my 20's and living paycheck to paycheck, it was a very vulnerable feeling.

Why not just start a whole new thread on this?

The ranges below $100k are OK.
The largest percent of votes fell in the $200k-$2m ranges.* Maybe do it in $100k increments up to $1m and then $1m increments up to $5m and then over $5m.* Unless you want to add some levels above that but there are not going to be but very few in that range.*

Practically speaking, there is a lot greater difference between $1M and $2M, than between $2M and $3M. There is even a big difference between $1.25 and $1.5,or $1.75. I think between $1 and $2 M, there should be quartile breaks. Then maybe $2, $2.5. $3. Whatever you choose beyond that will be fun for the rich guys, but basically less meaningful.

Re: Your Current Net Worth

One way of thinking of this question is what is the final picture we want.
I think knowing the following would be interesting but, I don't know if a pole can break down the info this way.

Life status: working or retired

Marital status: single or married

Age:

Total Net worth: Total assets - total liabilities
