A Panoply of Milestones


I’m celebrating a panoply of milestones today. Three of them at once.  It’s milestone of milestones posts.

Milestone 1:  Over 142,598 in assets.

My assets totaled at the time of this writing are $146,204 to be more precise. This means I now have more in assets than I ever had in debt (-$142,598). This is a big psychological boost.

Milestone 2: Over $100k of debt paid off. 

With latest payment, my debt balance is now $42,460.  When I began this blog my total debt was $142,598. Can you believe it? Take that, debt!

Milestone 3: Over $100k networth  

Woot! I’ve moved up from my flyweight status of near $0 or lower networth of the past few years. My networth recently crossed the $100k mark and has been hovering just a little above ever since. Any big drop in the markets will pull me under again in the short term, but the barrier has been broken. I am officially in the Featherweight category!

I’d hoped to have a fourth milestone to include, reaching the 30’s, but that will need to wait for a while longer…

Do you have any milestones coming up?

I know C @ TheSingleDollar does! Congrats, C!

    This is awesome, way to go!! I really like your net worth charts. When is your estimated debt free date? It seems like you are really kicking this debt!

      Thank you. 🙂
      I’m aiming for December 2019 for when I become debt free – likely December 31st. It will be down to the wire for sure.

    Holy mackerel, that is AMAZING. Congratulations!

    Do you realize you’ve moved the needle by almost a quarter million dollars? ($146,000 assets + $100,000 debt paid off = ~$250,000 change in circumstances.) You’re a freaking rock start, DD!

      Wow! I hadn’t realized that. Go me! lol 🙂
      If all stays well with the markets, I’ll put that tidbit into my end of year post.

    Um, rock STAR, not start. Also, accidentally identified myself as “An”. I *am* a mess…

    This is all AMAZING. I hope it’s given you a big boost! And yes, I’m writing up my exciting-news post right now 😉

    Congrats! Big change in the net worth in a short period of time. If you can do that with debt in play imagine what you can do when you are debt free.
