You’re not doing net worth? That’s pretty hardcore to focus purely on retirement accounts.

Only just signed up to post but been following this thread for a while and it is a huge help to keep me on track.

Since I started tracking:

07/17: £18,831
08/17: £20,396
09/17: £23,363
10/17: £24,599


Quarter of the way there. :-)


A big jump this month thanks to an incredibly generous gift from parents towards my first home purchase. Can't quite put into words how much it means. Now I have the foundation, I need to start putting more towards an index fund ISA or SIPP as I only have my relatively low pension  pot and company shares at the moment. I also need to make sure I avoid the lure of fancy new furniture for the house.

11/17 £26,243
12/17 £27,160
01/18 £28,622
02/18 £48,272

Yeah, I'm just focusing on retirement accounts for this goal. We bought our "forever home" a little over 2 years ago and never want to move. So I'm wary of including home equity in my tracking. We don't have any investments outside of retirement right now... but if/when we add them I'd probably include them here as well.

Progress!

1st Dec 17 - £16,900
1st Jan 18 - £17,650 +£750
1st Feb 18 - £18,570 +£920

I had a strong month, doing the Frugalwoods UFM really helped rein in the wasteful spending, I’m hoping to keep it up this month. Excited to hit 20k in a couple of months! Good work everyone else, keep smashing it :)

Hoping to gain some momentum this year and that joining the race will help spur me on! I'm not counting any contributions to my DB works pension, just funds I control directly myself so here goes:

Jan 18:
SIPP (Self Invested Personal Pension, Mr and Mrs)= £23,150
Emergency Fund (Cash) = £16,500

Total = £39,650

Please excuse the potentially confusing Brit terms. I'm also never really sure what to include in my NW as my house is mortgaged but only worth about what we owe on it (area never really recovered post 2008 crash), plus illiquid, and the DB pension is hard to value.

Hoping to add an ISA to the mix this year as our childcare costs should fall dramatically in September when littlest turns 3.

EOY 2014: €0
EOY 2015: €16,728
EOY 2016: €41,467
EOY 2017: €64,929
Jan 2017: €67,989

A nice increase this month. Am currently shifting from three funds to two funds, which means less time in the market and some trading fees.

2/1/2017   $45,014.18
3/1/2017   $50,670.45
4/1/2017   $51,983.46
5/1/2017   $53,010.18

8/1/2017   $48,798.72
9/1/2017   $50,685.95
10/1/2017   $52,982.65
11/1/2017   $52,963.21
12/1/2017   $57,942.15
1/1/2018   $60,259.05
2/1/2018   $63,267.65

I will probably still be on this thread for 2018, but early 2019 graduation seems realistic.

I was reading some of the other "Race from" threads and decided that although I don't count true NW 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.

Code: [Select]
        401K        IRA Invested Total Home Value Rental Value Debt         Total NW
Dec-13 $43,660 $0         $43,660 $120,000 $120,000 $232,000 $51,660
Dec-14 $52,943 $0         $52,943 $125,000 $125,000 $227,000 $75,943
Dec-15 $55,622 $0         $55,622 $130,000 $130,000 $227,000 $88,622
Dec-16 $68,870 $700 $69,570 $200,000 $130,000 $281,000 $118,570
Dec-17 $96,294 $1,167 $97,461 $240,000 $135,000 $317,727 $154,724
Jan-18 $101,379 $1,212 $102,591 $240,000 $135,000 $316,332 $161,258

I am calling JAN 2018 as the official graduation from this race!!

New job started on Monday, new race officially starts today!

I might have called it a little early, based on the market over the last couple days.  Guess we will see what the end of the month looks like.

Joining! Starting at $10,935.

I graduated with a BSME in May 2016 and had a net worth of around -$29k before I started working in August, so it feels great to be in the black!

Feb 06/18     25,073

I truly cannot believe I have put away almost $9000 in two months, these seems mind-boggling (I've picked up extra work, am barely spending anything & my last cheque I put away 90% of it into savings)

Probably will need to borrow from these for taxes but will try to cover that with next months' saving so I don't dip down--wuhoo!

Cross-posting this from the Share your Badassity thread.  Inspirational post about what it feels like to cross 100k, having started from nothing:

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.

Combined 120k income
Midwest City

09/01/2017: $65k Investments/$59k Net Worth
10/01/2017: $68.3k Investments/$65.6k Net Worth
10/27/2017: $72k Investments/$70.5k Net Worth
12/4/2017: $76.5k Investments/$81.9k Net Worth
12/29/2017: $79.1k Investments/$84.8k Net Worth
1/26/2018: $87.k Investments/$84.1k Net Worth (Down due to property taxes and change in Zillow for house

Background:
Age: 29
"Switched" Careers at 25.
Started taking personal finances 'seriously' around 27 (aka actually saving money, 401k, etc).
Started taking personal finances seriously around 29
Salary gradually up to 65k, 68k as of End of 2017, 75k at beginning of CY18
Married but don't include house (equity/mortgage) or joint savings in these calculations since she's the boss, it gets messy with house equity/sweat equity ($40k total on a $170k house in May 17), and it will just be cherry on the top.
-Paid off car but not adding value of that in the calculation since its not worth more than a few Gs and requires maintenance
-4.5 years left of student loan payments I'm aggressively paying off/refinanced in January '17
-15 year mortgage in May '17
-Not including 529 accounts-Only a few hundred now, but it will be going to Godchildren/my future children so not my money in my eyes.

January 2016-
($45k) Student Debt
($2k) Personal CC Debt
$8k 401k
NW: ($38k)

NW April 2016: ($34K)
July 2016: ($28.4k)
October 2016: ($22.6k)
January 2017: ($20.8k) (Refinanced loan and intransit payments not reflected)
April 2017: ($10.9k)
July 2017: ($5.7k)
August 2017: ($2.5k)
September 2017:(~$1.7k)
October 2017: $1.8k - $32k
November 2017: $4.5K - Investments ~$33.8k.
December 2017: $7.9K - Investments ~$37.8k.
January 2017: $11.4K - Investments ~$39.6k.
February 2018: $14.3K - Investments ~$43.9k.
Goal: 50k at end of year.
Hoping to increase 401k/IRA when the Sloans are paid off and hopefully some more salary. Realistic goal is to retire by 55 unless I really climb the corporate ladder.
Current  Beginning  March 2018: $16.0K - Investments ~$44.2k.

It looks like I am safe to stay in the next race, although not by much.  We decided to add $3k worth of 2017 contributions to the IRA during the dip and that is about exactly how much we are over the $100k mark (Invested Total).

Bad month due to market dip + a €400 holiday to Italy.

Edited; I just realized I forgot a 1000 that I have invested elsewhere. So that's actually an AMAZING month, not even close to bad. I don't even understand how that's possible.

No way a €400 holiday to Italy is ever a bad thing. That sounds like a mustachian good time!

Jul 17$6.2k
Aug 17$6.8k
Sept 17$8.2k
Oct 17$9.0k
Nov 17$9.9k
Dec 17$11.1k
Jan 18$12.1k

Feb 18: $13.6k

The shaky market was totally offset by my tax return (which got deposited pretty close to the low point even!) In February I doubled my NW from when I first found MMM. Next month I get three paychecks so I should fly right by $15k. Actually, I'm projected to finish 2023 with $99k, so maybe I can shave a year off my finish date too.

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).

Now that year end is basically here I took some time to run my numbers.

Current NW: 46,289.93
2018:
Student loan payments decreasing principal: 1,933.56
ROTH IRA Contribution on 1/1 (with 7% return estimated: 5,885
401k Contributions (with estimated DCA of 3.5% return): 19,147.50
Deferred 2017 401k employer match: 458
401k employer match (with estimated DCA of 3.5% return): 2,000
2017 tax refund estimate (with 1% Ally interest): 2,020
Addition to savings (for house downpayment):18,379.42
Estimated previous employer retirement plan increase: 500
Estimated increase in paychecks due to lower w/h from tax reform: 1,500.
Estimated increase to 2017 YE 401k balance (assuming 7%): 1273.09
Estimated increase to 2017 YE Roth balance (assuming 7%): 424.41

12/31 2018 NW estimate: $99,780.91. So it's going to be VERY close. There will certainly be some unexpected costs that creep up such as smaller medical/dental costs, registrations, licenses, car maintenance/repairs, etc. Getting there is going to heavily count on the stock market getting at least average returns. I'm working hard towards a promotion that would go into effect 11/1/18, which would hopefully net me about another 1k before 2018 YE. I also have multiple ways to get bonuses at work, albeit normally in smaller increments. I believe I already have close to 1k gross coming my way. Let's get it!
One month into 2018 and the new NW is 51,349 (with some help from the market) with an end of year projection now of $101,092. Woo hoo! I would still like to come up with another few thousand to play it safe as there will certainly be expenses come up that I don't really budget for such as medical/dental, car maintenance, registration renewals, etc.
End of month NW: 56,190.70
End of year projection: 98,691.13

Had quite a few things going on this month...ended a relationship of 3 years, girlfriend moved out. Rent went up $350 a month as a result.
Bought some furniture off of ex that she owned.
Had to purchase some necessities for the apartment to make up for what ex took.
Stock market...bleh.
Bogus Uber charge of $234 that I'm still fighting.

I'm still feeling good about meeting my goal as I should have at least ~4k of extra income coming my way from various sources. Also going to concentrate on being more frugal than normal this month to help catch up. Shouldn't be too hard as I'm going to be spending  a lot of time at work anyways (tax season).

Hello everyone! It is my first time posting in this thread, I just made by way over from the race to $10k thread which I just surpassed.

Here is a basic breakdown of the numbers as of the end of the day today:

Total Cash/Cash Equivalents: $31,642
Total Liabilities: $20,131

Net Worth: $11,511

Virtually all of my liabilities are student loans. I also have some minor balances on my credit cards, which I pay off monthly. I've been aggressively attacking the student loans (see my participation in the student loan challenge if curious) and have made steady progress.

As for asset composition,  20% are in checking accounts, 13% is in my HSA and 67% is in my 401k.

I'm looking forward to following everyone's progress. Good luck to us all!

Missed a month, but my net worth as of Nov 30th is $18,617.

As the year comes to a close, my next worth is up to $23,350.

Just updated my spreadsheet to record my paycheck. January ends with my networth up to $27,921.

With February officially in the books my net worth is sitting at $30,289.72. A pretty weak month compared to previous. Market losses along with some medical bills are the primary culprits.

Good progress everyone! I like to see a lot of people in the 10k-20k range as it's very relatable and we tend to make smaller jumps than the people that are closer to graduation (though this month it was a bigger drop I guess :p)
