Spreadsheet says net worth (with house equity) is now above $1m. Long time coming, feels good, needed to share. Thanks for listening.

It is always a great feeling. I bet you do not feel like a millionaire, yet you are one of the few.

Love the 2 commas. Tonight is Friday, Im 99 % sure tonight's menu is pizza. I usually consume Coca Cola with it. But know this, I will open up a bottle of Chianti Reserve that has sort of been calling my name anyways. I needed a reason, to open it, you gave me an excellent one. I will toast to your milestone, and wish you continued success.

Well, I haven't felt a millionaire before, so not sure if I feel like one. I'm sure my wife wouldn't like me running around trying to get feely with millionaires. What do they feel like to you? And how come you think I would not feel like them? :-)


Seriously though, thanks all for the good wishes.

Congrats - although there is no material change to your life and you probably don't feel any different, it is a significant milestone nonetheless. One which most people are never able to achieve.

Congratulations! enjoyed your sense of humor (play on the word "feel") Lots of satisfaction in this achievement, at least there was for me. Even more when I got to this mark in liquid assets only.

Be sure to order your "two comma" button/pin from Amazon.
