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.

Thanks!! I graduated at the very end of last month! Here's a little start to the celebration and maybe an anthem for those still "tryin' to get 100"...!

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.

I wonder if I can hit 10x NW at the 2 year mark. That'd be 53270, so +3624 in 2 months. It'll be a stretch, but maybe a fun challenge!

Not starting under $10k... But hopefully I can join anyways.  My wife and I are 32 and 34 respectively, and are expecting our first child in October!

Not counting home equity($100k-ish):

My Personal RRSP: $9800(All in XAW)
My Work RRSP: 7500(Misc Sun Life Canadian Equity Index Funds)
Wife RRSP: $9900(currently in cash, in the process of transferring banks)
Chequing: $8900
Credit Card: -$3600(big credit card month partly due to eventual baby, it's paid off monthly)
Total: $36,100
Not counted: Expected tax return due to RRSP Contributions thus far: $4400

My wife will be on Mat Leave for a year starting in October, so the trek to $100k might be a slow one. During her year off, we can only save about $1k per month.  Will be able to save around $3000/month once she's back to work.

I'm going to set our $100k goal for the end of 2019.

June Update

Dec 2016 :  45,241
Jan 2017 :  55,143
Feb 2017 :  58,239
Mar 2017 :  69,145
Apr 2017 :  74,332
May 2017:  77,876
Jun 2017 : 82,442

   An increase of 4,566 for the month of June, another solid month 😄. This increase was once again driven by a good amount of overtime, and I am actually hoping it will slow down a bit over the summer months. Besides that, expenses were on the high side but pretty standard for the month.
   Investments were up a bit, due to my company shares doing well. I hate having one company as a large percentage of my investment portfolio, so I just have to determine the best way to get them into etfs, in registered accounts. I'm thinking the only way is to sell, eat the capital gains, then rebuy VCN, XAW in my registered accounts. Any thoughts or input on this idea would be greatly appreciated.
   Keep up the good work everyone, looks like we are all moving in the right direction 📈

4/28/17 $82,123.14 start of competition
5/31/17 $83,416.85 an increase of $1,293.71
6/30/17 $88,646.63 an increase of $5,229.78!

Holy smokes, what a great month June was! I got a bonus check of about $1,400 this month and an extra $200 in deposits from my renters.  But outside of that $1,600 I would attribute the rest to my typical savings rate of about $1,200 and market increase.  July will be another big month because of my company's 401k contribution but outside of that I don't expect to see anymore large bumps like this until my December bonus.

May 2017 - 29,255
June 2017 - 30,880
July 2017 - 40,255

Had a great month.  Upped my 401k by a couple percentage points, paid down a couple grand in student loans and the company I work for gave out some nice equity to the employees.  Going to keep chugging along, hopefully I can keep these gains up!

2016-11-01   -$25,621 (bought a condo, not included in net worth calculation)

2017-05-01    $7,477
2017-06-01    $16,623
2017-07-01    $27,638

A great progress month ($11,015), lots of overtime accounts for going way above my expected savings.

Riding my bike everywhere now (if I don't walk). Cutting spending wherever I can. Still a slow strategy/ mind-shift.

Taking profits out of the business weekly instead of bi-weekly to increase time in market (accounting for GST / Taxes / Vacation accrual)

Switching to RRSP savings in July (from TFSA weekly) to lower tax burden in good year.

Far off Future:

Smith Manoeuvre once TFSA/RRSP are full.

Just starting on my FIRE journey, hopefully posting here creates accountability and eventually lowers my very anti-mustachian life habits.

This was a slower month thanks to the purchase of flights for a reunion and airbnb (that will be split). Should see a slight surge in August when i get repaid for the airbnb.

Congrats on the milestone FreshStash!  Nicely done.

Hello Mustachians,  This is my first post. I discovered Mr. Money Mustache in Jan 2017 and the blog slapped some common sense into me. Here are my numbers, I started keeping records in January. Only tracking 401k and cash, no properties yet. Congrats to everyone who is here and those who recently graduated.

Jan  2017     $45K
Feb  2017     $62k (sold one car, paid 5k CC debt).
March  17     $69k
April 2017     $77k
May  2017     $83k
June 7, 17     $86K (aiming for 90K @ the end of the month)

June was a frugal month and I took advantage of the '3-paychecks month'. June 30 stash was ~$93k. July will be a slow month.

Had unexpected dental bills in June.  Given the historical trend this year, it'll be tight getting to 100k on Sept 1.  It may be plus or minus a few hundred dollars.  Sounds like a good excuse for strategic frugality.

Belated welcome to you Nairobi!   You also will not be with us long, looks like.   Great job!

Beantown and 70times7 -- you are both killing it.  Wow -- very nice progress!

Thank you Trifele! I originally predicted to hit 100k at the end of September but I was being conservative. I did not account for market gain, employer match to 401k, or overtime. I decided to chase FI due to unstable job. However, I'm glad the job is unstable because that uncomfortable feeling continues to be a great motivator for me.

Congrats to everyone and I look forward to seeing more graduates soon.

I'm moving slowly - slower than planned due to medical expenses which are unfortunately ongoing.

I haven't included my pension savings and they're also slowly improving. I'll get to that 100K goal one day!

Yes, you will Zinny!   I started way in the hole and clawed my way into positive NW, then slowly built up the stache.   Now I'm in the $500k - $1M thread.   The bigger the stache gets, the faster it goes.  Don't let the challenges get you down.  You've got this!

Hi!

I've been tracking my NW for the past few months, but just stumbled on this post.  I'm a few years behind on the race, but it will still be a good practice in accountability.  Here's my NW since last year, when it took a kicking from a loss on the sale of my house.  I'm in the military and I was posted, so I had to cover the cost of a rental at my new posting as well as the mortgage and other costs (basement flooded during all of this).

Did a big kitchen reno that started in May, hence the NW drop as i tapped into some cash savings. Will be a stretch to hit 80k by the end of the year. 100k in 2018 should still be a go though.

I only really track my 401k balance 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.

My goal is $90k by the end of year, I am starting to think I might actually hit that goal.  I must have missed early July update but I happened to check my 401K balance today and was pleasantly surprised, considering that my July contribution does not get made until the end of the month.  OH, AND I BUMPED MY CONTRIBUTION BACK UP TO 10%!!

                    401K          IRA          Total
Dec 2013:   $43,660     $0           $43,660
Dec 2014:   $52,943     $0           $52,943
Dec 2015:   $55,622     $0           $55,622

I am in! The goal is to get to 100k net worth by the end of 2018. Currently at ~21k. I have been pretty good at my goals so far. Starting out after college in Dec. 2013, I believe I had about a negative net worth of 65k. My first financial goal was to get a net worth of zero by the time I received my tax refund this year and I hit it at the end of January. My second goal was to have my private student loan (6.6%) paid off by the end of July. I made it at the end of June. Next I am hoping to have the car paid off by the end of the year. Currently have a 10k balance left on that loan.

My soft goal for the end of 2017 is 35k in net worth, only because I think I'll need it to be close to that to meet the 100k goal at the end of 2018. I have not done any hard calcs at this point, but in the mean time, I should be getting annual raises of approx. 5k beginning 11/1 for 2017 and 2018. I will also be maxing out my 401k in 2018 and hopefully the ROTH IRA as well.

In late December 2016/early Jan, I found myself searching how to save a $100k. That is how I found the thread "how hard was your first $100k?" and people on the thread kept mentioning the phrase "since I discovered money mustache..." I googled Mr. MM and discovered a new way of life. Here is to the first $100k!

Jan  2017     $45K
Feb  2017     $62k (sold one car, paid 5k CC debt).
March  17     $69k
April 2017     $77k (frugal month)
May  2017     $83k
June 2017     $93k (3 paychecks month)
July 2017      $101.1k (frugal month and the market helped a little bit).

Holly cow!! I was not sure I would be lucky enough to graduate this month (I was expecting August).  It has been a frugal year and I'm glad to see it pay off (I did have to give up an expensive hobby of modifying sport cars...money pits). As for the stash, it is 40% cash (downpayment for a house) and 60% is in retirement accounts. My next goal is to save $10k Emergency fund. After that, I will try to  hit 100K in investments. Hoping to see more graduates soon.
