I never realized just how close our numbers were, very cool! Looking forward to following and tracking our progress in the 100-250k group.

Great job everybody. Looks like there are several of us that will be graduating very soon.   I hope that by end of May (June 1st) that I will hit 100K but more likely it will be end of June.
As always it depends largely on the market. And I don't include my house value since it's not an asset to me until I sell

I only really track my 401k balance (at end of month) and only for the last couple years. 

In my 20s I put something like 10% in and thought I was doing great (better than average), we also tackled 1 student loan, 2 car loans, credit card debt, and bought our 1st home (now a rental).  For the last several years I have only been putting 6% (plus a company match) into the 401k, while we saved for a wedding, down payment on a house, started a family, went to 1 steady income and 1 self employed income, and are continuing the last student loan.  We are still working on paying off my last student loan and building the self employed income but I am really hoping to hit $100k in the 401k sometime in 2018, if the self employed income starts taking off and we can contribute more to an IRA I will add that into the calculations too.

Dec 2013: $43,660
Dec 2014: $52,943
Dec 2015: $55,622
Dec 2016: $68,870
Feb 2017: $74,784

I did do a quick back of the envelope net worth calculation that included debt, primary and rental home value, and vehicle value and that put net worth around $150k, but since I don't regularly track that stuff I don't want to join the next group until the retirement accounts are above $100k.

April finished off with an overall increase of almost $1900 in the 401k and $326 in the IRA.

                  401K        IRA        Total
Dec 2013: $43,660   $0         $43,660
Dec 2014: $52,943   $0         $52,943
Dec 2015: $55,622   $0         $55,622
Dec 2016: $68,870   $700     $69,570
Feb 2017: $74,784    $700     $75,484
 4/11/17: $76,834    $1002   $77,836
Apr 2017: $78,946   $1026    $79,972

Welcome Unlikelycrotchgardener!  That is quite a username.  Afraid to ask if there's a story there.

You've made some great progress since the beginning of '15.  Way to hang in there when the income took a hit.

Haha, thanks Trifele. I used a random username generator to come up with that one and it made me laugh, so I used it. Had a change of heart and switched it again.


Hi everyone, first time posting. Just found MMM in the last 2 months. To cut costs the company I work for reduced salaries by 20% from April - August last year. As you can tell, I did not adjust my spending and my savings in 2016 suffered. They will be doing that again this year and I'm hoping posting here will help motivate me to really cut my spending during these reduced salary months! I also have the benefit this year of having discovered Mustachianism, so hopefully I will make some nice progress.

April was the first month of summer-time 20% pay reduction, so I didn't make great progress this month. May will hopefully be better, and my tax return should come in this month.

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%)

Crossed $90K just now, yay!

$95,500 as of today. Still hoping to graduate this level by June, with any luck.

Now sitting at $98,300. I moved out to my own rental house in February, and even though it was before my goal of hitting $100K, I've still managed to raise my net worth considerably despite my increase in cost of living. I guess I have the inflation of the market to thank for that.
Proverbs 13:4
The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, but the soul of the diligent is made fat.

Proverbs 13:11
Wealth obtained by fraud dwindles, but the one who gathers by labor increases it.

Going to jump into the race. Feels great to be working up for a change :)
I am currently only counting invested assets and savings and not counting house as it is my home and not really very liquid :)

May 5th, 2017 Questrade: 18534; Tangerine: 2054 RRSP and 4482 in savings: Total: 25070

Jan 1 2017   $53743
Feb 1 2017   $59995
Mar 1 2017   $65150
Apr 1 2017   $70592
May 1 2017   $76536

This month I am expecting a bonus of about $2500 (after tax) due to RSU vesting.  So, hopefully May 1 - June 1 will have a slightly larger than usual bump.

close!

edit- any plans to make sure you hit that 100 this month? As I get closer, I'm trying to figure out even more ways to speed it up.

I'm in the same boat. I am at $98K right now and should have no problem hitting 100K by the end of June, but I'd really be excited if I could make it happen by the end of this month. I don't really see any way of expediting it except relying on the market to stay high, though.

I haven't updated for a while - been on holiday and missed a few entries. Saving is going ok - should pick up now with fewer medical expenses and no holidays booked.

Good to see everyone's progress - keep it up!

I only really track my 401k balance (at end of month) and only for the last couple years. 

In my 20s I put something like 10% in and thought I was doing great (better than average), we also tackled 1 student loan, 2 car loans, credit card debt, and bought our 1st home (now a rental).  For the last several years I have only been putting 6% (plus a company match) into the 401k, while we saved for a wedding, down payment on a house, started a family, went to 1 steady income and 1 self employed income, and are continuing the last student loan.  We are still working on paying off my last student loan and building the self employed income but I am really hoping to hit $100k in the 401k sometime in 2018, if the self employed income starts taking off and we can contribute more to an IRA I will add that into the calculations too.

I did do a quick back of the envelope net worth calculation that included debt, primary and rental home value, and vehicle value and that put net worth around $150k, but since I don't regularly track that stuff I don't want to join the next group until the retirement accounts are above $100k.

I have been watching my 401K closer than usual because I was so close to that $80k mark and man has it gone up and down all month but today I crossed it!  I know that it might go back under that mark tomorrow but for today it is over it, and next week when my contribution goes in it should be over it for good!!

                    401K          IRA          Total
Dec 2013:   $43,660     $0           $43,660
Dec 2014:   $52,943     $0           $52,943
Dec 2015:   $55,622     $0           $55,622
Dec 2016:   $68,870     $700       $69,570
Feb 2017:   $74,784      $700       $75,484
 4/11/17:    $76,834     $1002      $77,836
Apr 2017:   $78,946      $1026     $79,972

Sitting at $99,500 today...I'm just a day's market jump or two away from the moment I've been waiting three years for. Could even be today! I wonder how I'll celebrate...I'm tempted to have a fancy dinner or buy something nice for myself, but wonder if that would be antithetical to the victory, lol.

That is great, MVal!!!  As a mustachian it is hard to know how to celebrate such things, ha ha.  At the very least you can post it here and know that your fellow mustachians are celebrating with you.

Currently at 86k but I'm going to buy a cruise and get my wisdown tooths out so it's going to go down next month :(. 78k to 86k since january !

Did the cruise (2250$), got my wisdom tooths out (1350$). NW is now at 87k.  Got a second job so I'm hoping I'll be able to increase my income a bit.

A great progress month, starting focusing on reducing spending. No tangible benefits yet but a slow strategy/ mind-shift is in the works.

Future:

Contemplating taking profits out of the business weekly instead of bi-weekly to increase time in market
Researched a bit about the Smith Manoeuvre to use the equity from the condo once I am done in TFSA/RRSP investments
Just starting on my FIRE journey, hopefully posting here creates accountability and eventually lowers my very anti-mustachian life habits.

I've been over and under $100k all month.  But I didn't want to post here until I knew for sure that I could end the month over the magic number.  I'm going to scrape by at $100,421 for the end of May. So excited to be working towards $250k.

I want to get into this race.  My current net worth is $82,123.14 as of today.  I think I can get to $100,000 by the end of the year.

5/31/2017: $83,416.85

That is a growth of $1,293.71.  Which puts me on pace to reach $92,500ish by the end of the year.  BUT I get a big 401k contribution in July and 2 bonuses (June and December) which should put me over the 100k mark.  That's exciting.

First time checking in! Here's what the last few months have looked like:

1/1/17: $50,628
2/1/17: $54,828
3/1/17: $56,100
4/1/17: $60,393
5/1/17: $63,775
6/1/17: $67,020

I may have an expensive summer coming up (buying a car for the first time, moving long-distance, possible break between jobs), but here's hoping I can stay on track for my goal of $80k at year's end. And then $100k before my 27th birthday in 2018!
