Joining so I can track myself. Amount will jump around because of quarterly tax prepayments.

11/26/17: $47,707.48

Beginning of the year was a disaster but parting out a project car and selling another fun car helped.

06/22/18: $72,953.75

Due to making less than 50k I'll probably be way behind some of y'all but...

2 years into the 'real' workforce, networth 40k:

Work pension contribution: 10k
Savings account (earmarked for house downpayment, goal is 50k): 30k

If anyone has ideas about places to put house downpayment money that I plan to use within 1-2 years, I'm all ears!  Earned a whopping 25 cents last month in interest in savings and it made me so sad...

Hey guys,

Thought I'd update here as I'm about to graduate from this thread. 

House down payment savings up to 53k
Pension up to 16k
And...I cover this in my journal but I found out I had a surprise Roth IRA that has grown to 30k.  This was entirely funded by my parents who secretly matched every dollar I made as a minor and put the money into a Roth IRA for me.  I had no idea this existed and won't be touching it.  Amazing parenting FTW.

Total:  99k

Feels like I cheated a little bit but there you go.  Next month I'll see y'all on the other side!

That's an amazing gift and 30k is a shitload of money! How long has the account been just sitting there?

Apparently since I started working, which would have been 15.  14 years.

Wow, that's awesome - what a cool surprise.  I'm a parent of young kids and this motivates me to do something similar some day.  Congratulations on graduating!

I'm sitting just at 70. I didn't think I was going to get to participate this year, but I ended up maxing out my pre-tax accounts so this is exciting! I don't think I'll be able to actually hit 100k by the end of 2018, but I'll be damn close :)

06/29/2018: $20,396.96 — Dog tore her ACL (CCL in dogs) which was a $5,000.00 vet bill between diagnosing the leg and getting the surgery. Luckily, I managed to stay over $20K NW so my progress didn't take a huge hit. I put the expenses on a 0% APR for 12 months card, so I can still chip away at my student loans at 6% without having to worry about the vet bills for now. I have enough in my e-Fund to cover them, so it's nothing I'm worried about for right now.

This includes all our retirement and personal accounts for assets. It includes our credit cards, student loan, and mortgage for liabilities. It DOES NOT include our home value.

April 2018 - $52,917.42
May 2018  - $58,400.19
June 2018 - $59,686.34

Keeping on the slow and steady path. Working on what's left of our credit card balances now. Hopefully they will be paid off within the year. That'll feel really good.

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).
End of March NW: 60,017.55
End of 2018 projection: 98,683.37

The good - decided to take some of my house down payment savings and use it for some bank account churning (+650). Got project sale bonuses approved (+ approx 1500). Kept discretionary everyday spending down by about $300 from average.
The bad - realized I didn't remove my tax refund from my projection last month, so it was overstated by approx. 2,400. Then of course the stock market didn't really cooperate this month either. I believe I basically contributed 1,400 to 401k this month and the end of month balance is basically only 700 higher than the beg. of month balance.

End of April NW: 65,600
End of 2018 projection: 99,880 (ugh..so close!)

I spent more then normal this month, but a lot of it was worth it in my mind. Planning vacation, reconnecting with old friends, dating, etc. Made good progress with extra income this month - $1,900 side income and $1,600 work bonus. Also saved $17/month on internet and more than doubled my speed at the same time. Gotta keep hustling..and it would be nice if the stock market would help some.
End of May NW: $73,816.57
End 2018 Projection: $103,127.81

Once again some above and beyond helping me this month: $700 from side income, $100 visa gift card for switching to AT&T, churning $200 from Discover Savings, prior employer retirement plan balance came in at $500 more than expected, and my employer deferred 401k match finally hit my account. June should be another nice rise as well as I don't have much in the way of extra curricular going on and it will be a 3 paycheck month.

End of June NW: $79,230.50
End 2018 Projection: $103,811

Fell just short of my goal that I didn't mention on here of $80k for this month. Market being meh and realizing Mint was double counting my HSA were big contributors -_-

Hello! I am new to MMM. I'm 28, recently married, and we maintain separate finances. The goal is to be in a strong financial position to maintain flexibility in the future, not necessarily RE. I have a job that I love with amazing benefits, so I am not in a hurry to retire. But as you all know, that could always change.

I have always lived below my means in that I have never held any debt, but I've never really saved. I was a grad student living on a lean stipend in a HCOL city until a year and a half ago. I'm still in the same HCOL city, but now I have a real salary, a defined contribution retirement plan, and access to 403b and 457 accounts.

Current net worth: $48,533.91
Breakdown below...
Cash: $17,747.04
Retirement plan: $18,702.39
403b: $679.16 (Just opened this 1/1/18)
Roth IRA: $11,736.04 (Did not open this until 2016 tax year)
Credit card: -$330.72 (Use this for normal expenses, pay off in full every month)

I was over $50k a week ago, but of course the stock market is going down at the moment. Shares on sale!

3/18: $48,533.91
4/18: $53,215.13 (+4,681.22 - extra paycheck)
5/18: $55,433.65 (+2,218.52)
6/18: $57,041.95 (+1,572.27)
7/18: $59,753.49 (+2,711.54)

Happy with June's progress, especially since I know this month will take a hit due to some expected vacation expenses.

January: €3068.76
February: €3965.75
March: €4758.99
April: €7103.66
May: €7508.32

June:
Checking account: €1902.13
Emergency Fund: €5000.00
Amortization Fund: €64.18
Goal Fund: €0.00
Investment: €3102.06
Total: €10068.37

A new challenger approaches!

So quick explanantion regarding splitting of assets:
Checking account and emergency fund is self-explanatory, should add that the latter is full.
Amortization fund is where I save monthly for non monthly regular bills (e.g. put 1/12th of every yearly bill, 1/6th of every biyearly bill etc.)
Goal fund is where I save for well, goals. Current goals are a one time €3-5k to do some experiments with a couple of active trading strategies as well as option trading. Who knows, maybe I'll beat the market consistently, or more likely I'll underperform and lose (a bit/some/a lot/all) money and will be my own example of why passive > active. After that I'll start saving for a house, probably, though I've been increasingly considering renting for at least the medium term as the math seems to favor it.
Investment is my investment account containing my very elaborate and carefully chosen portfolio of one vanguard world stock index fund as well as a literal couple of cents cash because they round mutual fund orders down about half the time.

The rest of the year and next year are really volatile for my financial position, I know for certain I won't need my EF but income is going to be weird so I might not be able to invest as much.

This month I learnt that lesson about loaning money to "friends", it's funny because you would have thought that I could learn that lesson through the mistakes of those that have come before me. Alas, I had to see it for myself. A decent month has been neutralised but we just gna roll with it.

Just graduated into the next "Race to/from"  bracket.

May 1st  $88,849
June 1st $99,417
July 1st  $109,417


These 8k-10k gains should stay for the next 16 months with a recent temporary assignment I have been given (Expat). Then it will be back to a more sustainable $3,300/month gains.

See you in the race to 250k!

Me and DW just hit positive numbers two months ago (disregarding house value). Current NW is 5828$, but I expect to pass 10k during this month due to extra payment from work. I'll be tracking my progress here :)

June 30: 5828.16$

We're paying down quite aggressively on our mortgage and hope to be able to be dept free next spring (expect a small student loan with very low interest). I know paying down the mortgage is not the optimal thing to do in the sense of ROI, but after long discussions (and being so close to killing it once and for all) we really want to just do it! We're also expecting our first child this Autumn, and being free from the mortgage would give us the additional security to take unpaid leave from work.

Current assets are mostly in index funds and in a special Norwegian savings account for saving for an house purchase (An incredibly good deal, with interest rates at 3.5% and 20% of yearly deposit back on taxes)

BTW. I tried to add myself to the spreadsheet, but not sure if I did it correctly. Right now I'm all the way to the bottom :P

Congrats @gpyros85 !

Welcome @Mattrim  !

Great progress everyone else!

2014 Jan: (129,703.05)
2015 Jan: (115,355.51)
2016 Jan: (82,545.00)
2017 Jan: 2,693.77

2018
Jan: 48,429.84
Feb: 39,863.96 (Acquired new to us mini-van at low end of our price range and at low end of mileage for vehicles in our price range)
Mar: 44,139.97
Apr: 44,650.91 
May: 48,082.98 (Awesome month for the networth despite getting to pay rent on two places and waiting on the return of one security deposit. Thank you Mr. Market!)
June: 52,774.50  (Cue up the Bon Jovi!)
...
2018 Dec: 68,000 (GOAL)
...
2019 Jul: 100,000 (GOAL)

Pretty solid month for networth.  We got our full security deposit back from the old place so that was nice!  We're expecting baby #3 any day now so number is padded a bit by the cash pile for hospital bills in August.  I also added myself to the spreadsheet.  Hopefully I did it correctly!

Just hit 80k NW!

I previously didn't think I'd be able to hit 100, unless the market crashes tomorrow I might make it. And honestly I wouldn't be mad if it did.

£70,866 Jun ‘18
£74,169 July ‘18 ($98,893)

Missed a few months but here is my update, I told the internet in March that my plan was to hit $100,000 this month but alas, I am $1,107 short. Might as well just give up on this fire idea

I have another confession, I’ve started overpaying on my mortgage, I know I shouldn’t but Mrs Twisted is so much more interested in frugality when the money is going towards being mortgage free rather than something which is still decades off.

I'm not hitting $100k this year because I just realized that my bonus for the year is paid out early next year. Be interesting to see how close I can get without it though - hopefully within $10k or so.

I think we are at $63k today.

New to the thread and the forum as a whole, but long-time reader. Great thread! I'm around $42k, aiming for ~$55k by the end of this year and $100k by the end of 2019.

Roughly $3k/month available to save/invest, so it's little bit of a stretch, but discipline plus modest S&P returns should do the trick!

Welcome to the forum @BestCoast!  You picked a great place to land.  Good goal -- looks doable, but enough of a stretch to feel challenging! 

And welcome to the thread @PassMMM!  You're doing great.  The end of the year will be here before we know it.

Updating this with January numbers!

RRSPTFSA
Dec '175,5005,500
Jan '185,6365,808

Total: $11,441 (+441)

It's been several months and a rough go of things. Between a (totally worth it and now 20/20 vision) eye surgery, a breakup, therapy and moving into my own place, my net worth has gone down. That said, the gains I've made in mental health and fortitude have been well worth it. Plus, I think my last figures didn't take into account that I'd be spending $4k on the surgery. I did have to pull from my TFSA a bit because I failed to plan adequately for the sheer deluge of eye drops I would need after the surgery. And I also totally just spent more money overall.
