    fatlittlepig- age 41, net worth is currently 6-6.5 including paid off house, no debt.

    dual income physician household making about 550 / yearly

    after years of browsing bogleheads.org, and more recently this forum, I have come to realize that this level of net worth is rare or very uncommon amongst physicians in my age range.

    there surely are many dual physician income households, why would this be rare? we are frugal but not overly so in my opinion. Steady stock market investing.

    why aren’t there more fatlittlepigs.

    lol

    Claiming $2000 exercise equipment is too expensive for a NW pushing upper 7 digits is just as ridiculous as the other $6M NW guy hand wringing over a $1000 grill (while slipping in his “used civic” frugal cred). Spend on what you want, but are these threads meant to be humblebrags followed by encouraged self-denial?

    Glad I am not the only one who thought the grill question was odd. Thought I was surely missing something.

    I for one appreciate the “Millionaire Next Door” mindset and the reminder that affordability is a matter of personal priority, and that just because you CAN buy it doesn’t mean you SHOULD.

    We have a solid 7 figure net worth and an AGI in the top 2%, and we find that a Netflix subscription is too expensive for us. So is cable TV. So is setting the central heat above 63 degrees during the winter. “Too expensive” is 100% subjective. That doesn’t mean we don’t indulge. Between vacations, wine, and bicycles, we have our luxuries. We just don’t have ALL the luxuries. And that’s okay. You get to decide for yourself where the balance point is between spending now and having financial independence later. Taking responsibility for making your own choice is part of being an adult. Even if the choice is not to encumber yourself with an expensive doo-dad that you know very well that you don’t actually need. 😉
