    If you do nothing, is that abnormal?

      Print out that spreadsheet and frame it. Hang it where to keep wedding photos and baby pictures. It means a lot to you and your spouse.
      Who knows, some day you might actually look at it. Congratulations.

        Nope. I have never celebrated a financial milestone, neither a number reached nor such things as paying off our house, first partner bonus check, etc, I probably did not even recognize some of them.

        One more million will take us to a very large milestone that I never imagined would be achieved, and if/when we reach it, I will “celebrate” by continuing to do what got us there. Okay, maybe I will take the dogs for an extra long walk...

          As often seems the case, I’m on the exact same page as VagabondMD. But I’d not express it so well.

            I have never celebrated financial milestones either. In my real life it would seem like bragging. I remember them but I just do not celebrate. I guess going to part-time and then retiring earlier than my peers is celebration enough.

              I didn’t know it happened and we don’t celebrate either. I guess if I won an 83 million powerball id celebrate.....

                I haven't hit the milestone yet, but every time I cross the 1,000,000 dollar milestone, i'm going to go blow a bunch of money on a great vacation.

                  If I have a partner by then, i will go on vacation.

                  Otherwise go to dinner with a friend.

                    You can really rack up some great vacations. If you use ETF’s even better. Monitor that sucker all day when you are getting close. That pinball machine will fluctuate up and down continuously. Bonus points can leave you with close to a lifetime supply of great vacations you “earned “. No guilt whatsoever, vacations galore.

                      I was sure the market would crash when we hit 1 million. That was only earlier this year. No crash yet.

                      I don’t think we really celebrated crossing 1 million more than posting semi-anonymously here.

                        Deleted in case the person lurks on the board. Apologies.

                          "Was it useful for anyone in that conversation?"
                          I have three people that I "brag" about stuff. Two just laugh and say something like "Anything else?"
                          The third is my spouse. She is like "OK, have you finished anything I asked you to handle? Make yourself useful. Congratulations on whatever it was."

                            Celebrate quietly and frugally.

They have this really good hazelnut (Nutella/Ferrero Rocher) flavor, followed by a walk around Home Depot or Costco. Not both... that's for when I hit $2 million.
                              but if you get the gelato, how will you have room for the Costco hot dog and berry sundae?

                                Being able to celebrate cognitively without actually having to burn cash unproductively is a skill.
