I can't wait to get over 50K!
And then life got so busy, I didn't even register when it happened..!

Aug-17: $49,222.48
Sep-17: $51,435.45
 

Great job! Hope that happens to me with my next milestone!

.
.

I'm currently frustrated that half my net worth is in transit between TIAA and Vanguard for a rollover and I almost choked when I opened Personal Capital and saw the net worth bottoming out. I can't believe in this day and age the rollover can't be totally electronic! They tell me it could take up to 2 weeks to arrive in my rollover account...

I transferred from Schwab to Vanguard via ACH so it is electronic for certain firm but not for all, I guess.
 

Well mine ended up only taking a week, so not that bad - but my Personal Capital profile now looks like I tanked it for a week followed by the most epic day ever haha.

I'm crashing two threads and this will be my joint account. I like my personal one since it's easier to motivate myself then my wife, but it still nice seeing the change in combined NW/Investments which is what matters.

29dh/29dw
Combined 120k income
Midwest City

09/01/2017: $65k Investments/$59k Net Worth
10/01/2017: $68.3k Investments/$65.6k Net Worth
Hopefully graduate this thread by March.
10/27/2017: $72k Investments/$70.5k Net Worth

Happy with this month, closing in on the plan to save 100K in 2017 (tracked in another thread). Will be helped by a RRSP contribution of all overtime for the last 3 months at the end of December (held in case of miscalculated corporate taxes).

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

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.

So I am currently at ~30,900 net worth. I've been averaging about a 2k increase per month and I've got an extra paycheck coming in for December as there will be 3 pay periods. I should be between 37-38k net worth by the end of the year. I've got a raise coming effective 11/1, but I have not been communicated the amount yet.

I've cut almost 3k in annual expenses in the past few months. Moved to a nicer, more convenient, and cheaper apartment (farther away from city center, which I don't need anymore) that will save me $87 a month. In moving there and an acquisition by my firm, I will be driving approximately 10 miles round trip a day rather than 60. Rough estimates have that at about $100 a month in gas savings. My firm is also adding a HDHP plan, which I do not know the exact details yet, but I'm guessing this will be about 1/2 the cost of the low deductible plan (estimated savings of 50/month).

I have not ran the hard numbers yet as exact figures aren't determined, but my goal of 100k NW by the end of 2018 is going to come really close. I'd guess I'm looking at being more towards 10-15k short without any gains/raise coming next year/potential promotion. Here is a question for my fellow cohorts - I have about a 5k vested pension at my previous employer. I'm going to check to see if there is any way I can roll that over into a 401k/IRA this coming week. Either way, would you include that in your net worth calc? I'm younger so pensions are not a familiar topic for me. I've read being vested means that its guaranteed to me no matter what, but I've heard of plenty of people losing their pensions (albeit not knowing specific circumstances).

Wooo Hoooo!!!!  Big congratulations!

Thank you!  Never would have believed it was possible a few years ago.  But at 25 and single, there’s no better time to start building the foundation.

Rejoining with new numbers - I started out tracking NW, but it did not feel right as it includes home equity/rental home equity/student loans, etc....  I am now only including our tax-advantaged retirement accounts as that is what feels right for me on this thread.  I expect to graduate April 2019.

6/1/2017   $44,119

10/1/2017 $55,740
11/1/2017  $60,079 (will slow down through EOY as 401K is now maxed)

October was a good month for me.  My roommate got a new job in Chicago, and is taking the majority of the furniture with him.  November is going to be a little tighter for me with furniture and Christmas purchases on the horizon.  At least I've found a new roommate coming in on December 1!

I'm in!
I've been needing a little motivation in my mustachian life.
I will be doing this separately from my husband because it's easier for me to track on MINT.
100k here I come!

NOV-2017- $41,195 in arobs IRA's

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.

                    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
  5/24/17:    $80,007     $1040      $81,047
  6/05/17:    $82,048     $1057      $83,105
  7/21/17:    $84,508     $1075      $85,583
  8/02/17:    $85,737     $1075      $86,812
  9/01/17:    $86,830     $1079      $87,909
10/02/17:    $89,275     $1100      $90,375
11/03/17:    $91,994     $1124      $93,118

I had a goal of $90k in the 401k by the end of the year, I made it!!  There should be a pretty decent dividends increase in Dec, not sure if I will be able to hit $95k in the 401k alone before the end of the year but it seems pretty likely in the combination of the 401k and IRA. 

It would be really cool to graduate from this before baby #2 comes in March!

In other news, we now have a lodger, only short term but will boost savings and provide company to Mrs T when I'm away with work.

I was reading some of the other "Race from" threads and decided that although I don't do true NW but it would be nice to look back and see it so I figured I would add it!  I am staying in this thread because the "Invested Total" is the column that I am tracking.

I had a goal of $90k in the 401k by the end of the year, I made it!!  There should be a pretty decent dividends increase in Dec, not sure if I will be able to hit $95k in the 401k alone before the end of the year but it seems pretty likely in the combination of the 401k and IRA. 

It would be really cool to graduate from this before baby #2 comes in March!

I was reading some of the other "Race from" threads and decided that although I don't do true NW but it would be nice to look back and see it so I figured I would add it!  I am staying in this thread because the "Invested Total" is the column that I am tracking.

Hi Everyone!

I just passed the 10k mark and I could use some motivation to keep going :)

About me: I'm 33 years old, have a stable but stressful job and discovered MMM this summer. By now I have reduced spending and increased savings, which was quite exciting. Now that I'm set up for the long wait, I'm looking around blinking in the bright mustachian light "...and now?". I'm not very patient ^^

No kids, no pets, and we're renting but we are looking to buy a house in the next year. So next year I will leave you guys for the x to 10K race I guess! Below my numbers, savings and investments only:

July 2017:            € 7.208 <--- Discovered MMM (and many other great bloggers!)
August 2017:        € 8.918
September 2017:  € 9.480
October 2017:     € 10.225
November 2017:  € 10.906/ $ 12.855

[edit: forgot to mention the currency and added conversion to dollars]

Wow, MEJG, congratulations on the huge leap forward!  Though it sounds like you had a death in your family, and I am sorry for your loss.  I've not gotten one, but these posthumous gifts from loved ones are huge.  They can push us forward years on the FIRE pathway, giving us the gift of time and peace of mind.

Thanks!
One death, and one very generous “pre-inheritance” structured in such a way as to wipe out all but $16,000 of my student loans.  It effectively frees up 800/month. And puts us squarely into the stache builing rather than debt paying territory.
It’s pretty amazing to look at the numbers! But also doesn’t change much day to day.  Five years ago my student loans being gone was so insurmountable and in creating a plan and following it now the steady climb was made inevitable (barring disaster of course). We’re deeply greatful for the gifts! It’s interesting how perspective has changed along this road.

Looking forward to MORE tax advantaged investments than debt repayment in 2019!

Hi everyone!  I'm so excited to be able to post in this thread after graduating from the race to $10k.  That said, I'm settling in here for the long haul because I know reaching $100k is going to take me a looonngggg time.  So I'll get a pot of coffee going and make myself at home.  Right now I'm still building up my emergency fund, while putting 10% into my 401k.  Hoping to have the e-fund done by the end of 2018, then start saving for a house while bumping up the 401k too.   I have a paid off car not included in my net worth (2012 Honda Civic that I hope to drive f-o-r-e-v-e-r), student loans are gone (paid in full in late 2016), and zero debt.  I'm 34 and feeling very behind at this adult thing, but I'm doing my best to catch up now.

Welcome! Behind on this forum is still way ahead in real life, congrats!
Just starting on my FIRE journey, hopefully posting here creates accountability and eventually lowers my very anti-mustachian life habits.

My net worth finally crossed $100,000! Here's my progression according to Personal Capital:

January 1$45,372
March 1$65,063+$19,691(company bonus in February)
June 1$78,821+$13,758
August 1$76,010–$2,811(the end of an extremely spendy summer and some investment dips, I think)
October 1$92,860+$16,850(got a 20% raise in September)
December 1$104,856+$11,996

I saved $47,250 in total…so it looks like I might just be able to hit another gauntlet goal to save $50k in 2017.

I'm excited to move on to the next gauntlet thread!

April '17 £1,250
May '17 £2,515
June '17 £3,841
July '17 £6,774 / $8,705
August '17 £8,916 / $11,597 !
September '17 £10,812
October '17 £14,169
November '17 £16,320 / $21,449 !
I've decided to make some changes to my strategy after reading the 4 pot saving method http://the7circles.uk/savings-rate-four-pot-solution/
from 7 Circles (UK centric) which focuses on staggering your investments to fill gaps before you can access personal pension, company pension and state pension.

Now I'm putting much more into my pension and less into my ISA (accessible savings), this is much more tax efficient but also reduces my national insurance and student loan contributions. Salary sacrifice pension up by £1170 but take home pay only reduced by £600 :-)

This means I am now going to report my accessable (ISA) and pension pot (SIPP) here which will provide a boost to my numbers.

ISA £17,576 - $23,650
SIPP £29,162 -$39,242

Total £46,738 - $62,892

I'm in! I was waiting for the month end to get my numbers together. I'm in the UK so working towards £100k.

1 Dec 2017 - £16,900

Currently adding approximately £800 per month to the stash, I'm very jealous of everyone that can add thousands each month! My take home salary is quite low (~£20k/year), but I'm living rent free with family at the moment so living expenses are low too, meaning my savings rate is around 50% of my take home pay.

I'm not counting my pension in my networth as it is a superannuation scheme so too complicated to include, plus who knows what the UK retirement age will be for me, currently have to be 68 years old to claim!

No assets to include in that number (no house, car), so just cash/investments in index funds.

Ok I just depressed myself and worked out it will take about 8.5 years to get to 100k at my current rate of saving :(

mustache you a question

Interesting month...received an inheritance of a few thousand dollars that was put into savings and then our home value jumped another 5k according to the mortgage company.  Assets of 261,948 and liabilities of 178,163.

A question for all of you, how do you track your home value (if you include it in NW)?  The most accurate way I know how to is just to follow what the value is according to Quiken Loans, it's consistent but might not be the most accurate.  Does anyone have any advice there?
