LOL. I do that somewhat. Usually crossing the "Thousand aire" thresholds. I only calculate NW on the days the market goes up. Never on down days. And if it's down I wait until it's sorta in the range of crossing back over to make up for the down. My mind is very complicated. LOL. Good idea on checking the couch for loose coins. Be Right Back

I don't think I'll ever get there, I'm contempt being a member of the 7 figure club.
I've seen some projections that get us there, but I expect that we would just spend more than watch it pile up. We just put a deposit on a guided photography tour to Patagoinia.

If it looked like I was was headed to eight figures, I'd ramp up the spending way before I got there. No need to pass on that kind of money to my kiddos.
DW and I have also talked about creating a charitable trust for something that we want to support.

Thought of this skit when I read the above:
