I can see the finish line (to 100K that is) and I can't wait to cross it.
Honestly once I got rid of my debt, it's really amazing how much I've been able to put away. All that expense going out the door being turned around and saved.

06/30/15   $43,137.96
07/31/15   $44,941.13
08/31/15   $42,043.10
09/30/15   $38,770.91
10/31/15   $44,941.34
11/30/15   $46,401.01
12/31/15   $47,513.96
01/31/16   $44,058.68
02/29/16   $46,830.84

Two years ago, in Jan 2015, our net worth hit zero for the first time since graduating college.  Now it's nearly at $60k and we are debt-free!  With a combination of new jobs/promotions/raises, we are now making 30% more than we did two years ago.  I think this year will be the year we hit $100k.  Shooting to make it by Dec 2017.  When I started this challenge, the end goal felt like a distant dream, but now it feels so real and so close and I am so excited!

I'm going to try to track my NW monthly this year to chart my progress. Starting 2016, I had a NW of $50,000. I'm hoping to grow it to over $75K.
Once I get to $100K, I think I will give myself permission to move into my own apartment, as I've spent the last 8 years living with the same roommate--saving a ton of money, but not getting as much privacy as I'd like.

Jan 2016 - $50,000
April 2016 -$57,000
May 2016 - $60,000
June 2016 - $63,000
July 2016 - $69,000 (profit sharing, plus market doing better - so glad I front loaded this year!)
Aug 2016 - $72,000
Sept 2016 - $74,000 (markets down, same deposits though)
Oct 2016 - $74,000 (uggghhh...)
Nov 2016 - $78,000 :D
Dec 2016 - $84,000 (Wooooo! Dale tu cuerpo a alregria, Macarena...!)

Jan 2017 - $87,000 (so far two paychecks front-loaded to 401K at 80%)

**in my calculations I've been using my house value from the last time it was valued by an expert (end of 2014). I realize that the value has gone up, but I don't know exactly by how much. Some websites say +10k, others +25k. I hadn't updated that number until now... So I've added 10k, the lowest number. No, sadly I haven't gotten a giant raise all of a sudden.

March 31, 2016$11,309
February 4, 2017$50,348

I started my first job after college in early 2016 with a mere $11k net worth, and just realized today that I crossed the $50k mark.

I'm hoping to save $36k more in 2017!

Hi,

Happy new year everyone and congrats on the huge achievements. 2017 is the year I'm pressuring myself with hard goals so I'll join this thread.
If I'm focused I can probably get to the 100K in four years (end of 2020, at a conservative estimate not accounting for raises and stocks appreciation) which is way too long for me to envision but the thread could be a way to get myself accountable on tracking NW quaterly which is one of my goal for 2017.

Jan 17, 2017:  12,138 

I don't know how I 'lost' 3K in the last 2 weeks. It was 15K by end of December but I counted checking account which I'll exclude from now on. Hope to have it at 30K by end of year, that'll be cause for celebration.
Couldn't wait for three months!!

I'll join.  Just recently started tracking my NW.

Jan 2017:   $19,166.96
Feb 2017:   $20,947.41

Hoping to crank up the savings soon!  Next month might take a hit (new tires).

  Wait, you went from 37 to 100 in a year?  Please share how!

Actually I went from 34k which was the last day in Dec 2015 to 88.5k on the last day in dec 2016 which is 54.5k increase to my net worth. I'm a software engineer and my salary is around 65k. I split expenses with my GF and ended up personally spending around maybe 7k last year on expenses. I took full advantage of my pre-tax accounts so my taxes were as low as possible

65k - 4.5k (taxes) - 7k(expenses) = 53.5k saved + a thousand from my investments increasing = increased my net worth 54.5k in one year

It's helpful to look at the numbers trending upwards. It's easy to compare myself to others and sometimes it feels like I'm barely moving forward. Just. Keep. Saving!

We just put our whole bonus into savings.  I know it isn't the month end, but we are pumped that this is the first time we haven't spent the bonus before we got it!  We're still far from the frugal levels of most folks here but this one felt good.  Looking to graduate around May/June now.

Updated for month end total.

Nicely done! Those must have been some tidy bonuses!

I'm on track to reach the next level about the same time you are, although my spending is about to increase a lot due to me moving out into my own house from a roommate situation at the end of this month. I know it's going to be challenging to keep my same level of saving and I'm probably going to have learn a lot of new saving tricks, but I'm excited for the general, upward movement of my accounts.

The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, but the soul of the diligent is made fat.

$93371 today! So close to $100k. It would be possible to cross the line next month. But we plan on buying a house soon so we will be set back a bit for closing costs.  I guess for tracking purposes on this thread the value of the house will offset the loan.  So hopefully the only set back will be those closing costs.

Mar 2016     $35,000
Apr 2016      $31,751
May 2016      $38,742
Jun 2016      $40,970
July 2016      $61,657
Aug 2016     $64,120
Sep 2016      $66,961
Oct 2016      $70,179

Should make $75k by the end of the year.

Dec 2016.   $ $78,000

NW with house/rental condo: 71k.

NW without house/rental condo: 33k.

Wow, didn't know I had that much! Guess 100k isn't impossible but I'd like to stay here till I get 100k without house/rental values :D.

NW with house/rental condo: 74k.

NW without house/rental condo: 35k.

Man I can practically smell it :)
Does not include house as it's not really an asset until we sell it.
Should be getting my bonus (1K minus taxes so $666), annual merit increase (usually around 3%), and hopefully promotion (all indications show I will be getting it) on the march 31st check so I think another 3 or 4 months and I can graduate to the race from 100K to 250K.

someone keeps messing up the spreadsheet, and I keep having to restore it to a previous version.  unless you actually know what you're doing, please don't sort the sheet.  If you DO sort the sheet, double-check a few of the NWs (compare against previous versions) to make sure you didn't accidentally scramble everyone's info.

If you entered information after Feb 15, it's gone.  You'll have to re-enter it.

I'll join.  Just recently started tracking my NW.

Jan 2017:   $19,166.96
Feb 2017:   $20,947.41

Hoping to crank up the savings soon!  Next month might take a hit (new tires).

Mar 2017:   $21,475.05

Bad month for us.  $500+ in tires, $350 in unexpected medical, and $1000 check to the girl scouts for cookies (My daughter is selling and we have to buy them up front and we'll be reimbursed when we sell).  Hopefully this month will really make up for February.

I'm in on this!  Loving the threads around here to keep people motivated.  Is this net worth, or investments/cash only?  I will do net worth for now.

9/2014 - (-$16,300)
1/2015 - (-$13,000)
1/2016 - (-$284)
3/2017 - $31,380

New member to the forum, but I'll join, considering only our investment/cash.
4/2015  - $7,000 total savings!! (we were living like there's no tomorrow, but new job matched 100% up to 6%, so this was our  trigger to start saving)
12/2015 - $13,000
4/2016  -  $25,000 (started maxing out my 401K)
12/2016 - $52,000
3/17      - $84,000

Starting 2017, my wife and I will be contributing max to our 401Ks, ROTH and HSA (me only) so we should, hopefully, accumulate pretty fast.

First post.  Was near zero around Q4 2015 due to transitioning from school to software engineering job.  "Accidentally" saved a lot the first year due by avoiding too much lifestyle inflation (biking to work, rent is actually less expensive than while in school, etc). 

Got a promotion and large raise (25 percent) in Q4 2017, discovered this forum, and decided to start saving deliberately.  I've been formally tracking my net worth since January.  This is emergency fund (cash in bank) plus retirement and non-retirement investments (no debts to account for).

Jan 1 2017   $53743
Feb 1 2017   $59995
Mar 1 2017   $65150

My goal is to reach 100k by November 1 2017.

Welcome Eporedia and Prickly_Turing!  2017 is going to be one fine year . . .

I sure hope so. I want to get rid of some of my debt:

1. About 4k in hospital/clinic bills (My son tonsillectomy and then my girl fell and hit her chin). Insurance covered some, but between deductibles/etc I still have about 4k. I'm paying about 400/mo for now so they do not send me to collections (they do not charge any interest on this one).

2. Finish paying my car (mustache alert -> got the car used, after my 600$ car heating system died. I live in NW Wisconsin). I still owe 4900 on it, 3.49% interest.

Good news for the year:
1. Received a modest 3% increase that will be all applied to my 401k.
2. Small bonus coming - probably 2k. I plan to put 500 on kids 529 college + 500 on car payment and the rest on mutual funds.

Thank you for always keeping us honest!
