I'd have been happy just having another positive year.  Oil and gas has sucked lately, so still having a job is reassuring.  As the year went by, I figured I'd be positive, but meh.  Thought Hillary would get elected and I'd muddle through.  Then we had the end of year bull market and I'm up over 15% on a massive and conservatively invested 'stache!  Who would've ever thought I'd be doing the backstroke a la Scrooge McDuck in my later years having internalized the Duck Tales mantra 'work smarter not harder' as a kid!  Life is good when it all goes according to plan (and better, when least expected).

But I don't expect this to last.  Even, at this point, if it lasts another year or two, it is underpinned by finagling that will need to be hedged against (like the dollar weakening, inflating spiking, or real estate falling in value).  But if we can digest these gains and stay flat or somewhat average for the rest of my existence, life will have been exceptionally good!

Hey EV.. I can see how perhaps we might be flat to down for a few years but gosh, your only 43 dude I would expect some growth between now and when you depart this Earth..:)

Incidently.. What do you mean by "conservatively invested"? At 15%  that bears my 80/20 ETC portfolio, so I'm assuming your are more aggressive than 80/20? stock/bond.

I started tracking spending and savings in April, so for the last 9 months of 2014 my net worth increase was $8846 during that same time my spending was $9783.  Seeing it spelled out like that makes me feel like it was hardly worth it.

Here's my 2014 post, I can't find one for 2015. In 2016 I saved $18,983 (including employer contributions). My net worth increased by $43,208.  For comparison sake my gross wages were $36,896 and my take home was $13,740. For me that's a pretty impressive increase.

A good chunk of that was finally becoming vested at work so I added a several years of employer contributions to my retirement account all at once.

  For some reason I  didn't do a 2015 year end tally, so this is for 13.5 months.
11-17-15 to 12-31-16, increase of $166,763.

Our 6 year average gain from 12-31-10 to 12-31-16
$880,948 \  6 =  $146,824

 I'm older than most at 61 yrs old.
We are FI, I retired 9 days ago, my wife still works.
I don't expect to add anymore to our savings except for market returns.
All of my wifes earnings will go to meet our living expenses and get one of our kids
through 5 more years of dental school, the other through two more years of college.
 I hope to not need to touch our savings for at least 5 more years.
Got my fingers crossed on that.

Income during this period was ~72k; these are my NW numbers for this year:

12/31/2015: 567560
12/31/2016: 674842

Difference: 107282
Actual liquid FI funds: 572447
That's a lot more than I thought it would be: contributions were approx 40k.

I'm feeling encouraged.

Ours increased 300000. Unreal.  I never would have believed it if I hadn't written it down. From 650000 to 950000. Most of that was home equity, some super (Australia) also, and some credit card debt reduction.

Jan 2017 950000
Jan 2016 642000
Jan 2015 445000
Jan 2014 190000
Jan 2013   90000
Jan 2012  -15000

I feel the same as Marty in that we haven't really got much outside home equity and super as yet. But also hoping to improve on that in 2017. We are each about 40yo so 20yrs to get through before super can be used. My husband retired this year, and I am going to work casually and hopefully have another baby (we have a 4 year old also). And we have plans to rent the three spare rooms in our house this year to homestay students or similar, and possibly our caravan on airbnb so that will be an interesting experiment.

Getting there ... I'm happy with the gains considering it's on a single income (wife stays home with the kids)

12/31/13  $205,920.33
12/31/14  $239,488.26
12/31/15  $275,467.81
12/31/16  $324,591.54


Numbers don't include home equity.

I love tracking this ... it's so motivating.

BLUF  $ 103,604.00


I don't count my entire net worth (house is way up but it could go down again and vehicle assets like my 1948 Harley Davidson fluctuate in value don't worry all of  our vehicles are beyond the depreciation curve IE they are desirable and now going up or they are just old and worth scrap value

Anyway  by the end of the 2016  credit card debt   (zero, zilch nada) so

Paid off CC debt of  $33,998
Investments/Cash= 69,066

For a net increase in liquidity of  103,064

Personal capital shows a number more than triple what I posted  but in my opinion it is wrong!


The good news is now my wife understands the value of not running up credit cards and holding balances on them.


Mike that guy that is doing OMY again.

Trying to decide between airbnb, flatmates and homestay students but I think the homestay thing would be less work as less demanding and less cleaning since they stay longer. Flatmates might be too long. Yes stay at home Dad now, going ok he thinks.

Didn't start tracking until last year but here goes:

December 2015: $135,962.58
December 2016: $181,753.15

$45,790.57!  Going to shoot for $235,000 next year, an increase of $53,246.85, which is a little ambitious for us, but doable.

I was looking at this post for something and realized I have literally no idea where I got these numbers from.  They don't even match other months numbers.  I'm beyond confused...

Actual NW appears to be:
December 2015: $109,862.69
December 2016: $192,609.41

An $82,746.72 increase!?  Holy cow, that does not seem real to me.

December 2015:  -$43000ish
January 2017:  $26187

Started working full-time in November 2015, starting maxing out 403(b) in June 2016, maxed tIRA and paying off bad debt helped.
FI by 2026 if all goes as planned.

$101,000 increase in investment accounts with another ~$10k in low interest debt repayment and rental property principal so around $111k total NW increase during 2016.

We are up $108K this year, to $931K. Not bad considering I left my job last year to strike out on my own, and I am the sole breadwinner for our family at the moment.

I found MMM in late May 2016 and dove in with both feet. Got the SO on board too. He quit clown-commuting 1.5-2 hours EACH WAY in late November and started a job he can now walk/take transit to. It is financially better, but quality of life-wise, this has been the greatest improvement.

Jun-Dec 2016: Still negative, but lots of progress. Paid off 3 grad school loans of $15,000, paid down $12,100 more. (Remaining ~$35k will be forgiven under PSLF this October.) Saved $5600. Also have $10k in SO's 401k.

2017 Goal: Max out both IRAs for 2016 and 2017, his 401k and my 403b. $65k saved by year end and a positive net worth/totally debt free for the first time in my adult life. I'm 44. (Secretly hoping to come back to this post in December and see I smoked that $65k number.)

First time posting but I have been reading for a while.  I was relatively money conscious prior to finding MMM but my awareness has definitely gone up since reading this blog and others over the past 8 months or so.

NW Gains by year:
2013: +$29,300
2014: +$28,700
2015: +$40,900
2016: +$64,400 (projected)

These are inclusive of property value increases.  We bought our first home in 2014 and spent a lot of money on household wares/improvements/stuff, that's why the increases stagnated a little bit.  We got our heads on straight in late 2015 and then kicked into a higher gear this past year.  Altogether my personal expenses were reduced by almost $18k (I was really spending like a drunken sailor in 2015 apparently) in 2016 compared to 2015 and there is still room for more improvement.

I'll revisit this post after December 31 to see how accurate my projection was.  Maybe I'll include some info about our combined NW change as a couple (numbers above are just me).

It took a little longer for me to get back around to this.  My actual NW change in 2016 was better than I had estimated at $69,800!  Pretty happy about that.

Our combined growth as a couple was $123k but around half of that was property value increase/mortgage repayment.

I had to look up my net worth increase in my journal and was I surprised!

Here it is:

December 31, 2015 - $371,000.00
December 31, 2016 - $408,000.00

$37,000.00 increase.  I put in $13,000.00 - usually about a $1,000.00/month.  For 2017, I plan to put in $15,000.00.

2014: $115,000 **** Quit day job and pursued dreams in August 2014
2015: $145,000 **** Compounding responsible for most of gains
2016: $158,000 **** Worst january in the history of the S&P
2017: $330,000 **** Invested $60,000 in market in 2016.  Remaining gains due to use of margin (I was up to 1:4 leverage ratio but now it's 1:7 due to rallies) AND leveraged index funds (SPXL TQQQ etc).  I pay 1.7% APY for the margin loan.

I didn't realize my net worth went up $188,000 in just one year.  Long term buy and hold investing combined with the use of risk crush homeownership as a wealth building tool (I rent).

I went from 253 to 368

115k.... wow. I didn't even notice it went up that much. Obviously, I was watching the numbers but never really did a YTD on the thing.

Sitting at 408 now... so from 368 to 408 from Jan 1 2017 to march 7th.... dang about 40k...

To keep this updated:
2016: $2672k
2015: $1683k

Being leveraged to bull markets in both shares and Australian property has seen some crazy gains. I've been focussing on reducing leverage recently, in preparation for a trial FIRE later in 2017.

2014: $1396k
2013:  $1152k
2012: $885k
2011 $649k
2010: $615k
2009: $183k
2008: $54k
2007: $48k 
2006: $11k (Personal finance awakening)

Run rate over the last couple of years seems to have stabilized around $240k/year, about 50/50 saving and investment return.

September 2015: -30K
End of November 2016: 0.

Never been so happy to be worthless.

01/12/17: 33K. (This surprised me. From September to November of this year, I had ~4000 in unexpected expenses arise. I still managed to go from saving 2K/month from 01/09/15 -> 01/12/16 to 2.75K/month from 01/12/16 -> 01/12/17. Student loan should be finished in a few months.)

I love when people quote their years old posts with new data.

Well done! 4 years you more than doubled your NW, and hit > 1MM!  Congrats! :D

Hell, I don't know.  We're raising our net worth about $5,000 a week.

Joining the old quote club...   To bring this up to date:
2015: $1683k +287k
2016: $2672k +989k (+600k from trauma insurance, a bit of a net downer)
2017: $3009k +336k (married, had a kid, quit work in October)

Pretty amazing how fast it snowballs!  I'm interested to see what happens in 2018, as this will be the first year with no active income
