1/18/18 - 18,350.00
3/15/18 - 20,267.70
5/17/18 - 19,930.00
8/31/18 - 25,908.00
9/21/18 - 28,115.00
11/30/18 - 29,835.00

1/15/19 - 32,774.00
1/31/19 - 34,776.00
3/13/19 - 36,967.00

A couple of big expenditures recently took a bit of a chunk out of savings, but that's what savings are for I suppose. On the upside, I'll finally pay off the remaining balance of my student loans next month, so that should give me a nice boost financially and psychologically.

Updated to reflect unaccounted-for savings.

Hello all, joining this challenge after a bit of a layoff from the forums. I've been stuck right around the $90k NW threshold since August 2018, and I really want to push through into the six-figure club. This will be complicated by a couple of items: I'm getting married in June; we're going on a bucket-list international honeymoon; and I recently found out that I need a medical procedure that will likely take me up to the out-of-pocket max on my insurance, which is $5,500. In the "pro" column is an upcoming $4k refund, which I'm hoping will give me some forward momentum. (Or cancel out the medical expenses, whichever...)

We plan to buy a house in the next calendar year-ish, which will also mean a hit to the NW. I'm also a Poor by the standards of this forum--I make a hair over $50k (the most money I've ever made in my life!) and our HHI is around $93k. But damn it, I want to get to $100k! So here we are:

March 2019: 91,383.01

Welcome!  We are similar!

I recently found out that I need a medical procedure that will likely take me up to the out-of-pocket max on my insurance, which is $5,500.

I had an unexpected $5,500 for my OOP max last year - still paying it off (0% interest).

I make a hair over $50k (the most money I've ever made in my life!)

Including my bonus, I'm just a hair under $50k myself for this year.  We can do this!!!

It’s been exactly one year since I first posted on this thread! With a gain of
$32,762.45 in net worth over that year. Now, I’m almost halfway to $100K! Looks like I might get there by this time next year if things continue on like this (as I have been strategic and increased my salary by $20K in the last year, which happened in the last few months, and should show more over the course of next year).

2/16/19: $57,672
2/28/19: $61,806
3/16/19: $ 64,611 (+2805)

Not as much of an uptick since we had to pay for some larger purchases. But it's bonus season so we're hoping to make up for it over the next 3-4 paychecks. If things go somewhat to plan, we will be able to eradicate the student loan and our NW will hit the 100k mark in just a few months!

Just keep swimming...

I broke over $10,000 on 9/9/2018. I'm up to $25k as of 2/17/2019.
I'm increasing my NW by about 2k a month based on those figures and would hit 100k in about 37 months putting it out to about March 2022. I believe with an upcoming raise, bonus, and other small windfalls that come and go, I'm looking at a goal of December 31st 2021 to hit 100k. Current salary is 49k.

3/20/19: $26,600. Lots of changes: Trip to Chicago complete. Bonus received. Salary bumped to over 50k!!!! We're moving to a townhouse from an apartment. This will affect my savings rate slightly, but we will remain resident property managers and continue to receive a discount on rent. Overall the changes are positive.

Now to await the final March paycheck and get back into the groove of things in the new place.

March 14, 2019: 91,383.01

March 22, 2019: 96,571.66

Got the refund! I do need to pay rent for April so it's really $95,491, but at least for the next week I get to be in the 96es :) I'm only planning to do progress updates once a month, but the refund is a big jump so I wanted to go ahead and get it in there.

November 1, 2018 = $5,995
November 15, 2018 = $9,273
November 29, 2018 = $11,340
December 13, 2018 = $13,155
December 25, 2018 = $15,396
January 26, 2019 = $78,191 (Added our 401Ks into the mix)
February 9, 2019 = $80,723.72
February 14, 2019 = $81,500.07
February 22, 2019 = $84,426.22

Oh, crap! I just realized that we have saved over $18,000 in two months! Oh, man this is crazy.

01/28/18: $64,688.44

An unexpected month. First, had to buy a last minute airplane ticket to fly out to my uncles funeral. A few weeks later, booked airplane tickets to Costa Rica for a vacation, within a couple of days booked the hotels and rental car. Also did my last 2018 tax prepayment.

03/25/19: $63,325.75

Skipped a month. In the last 2 months, did my taxes, I was close on pre-payment but had to paid some more. Also, did the Costa Rica vacation and some work around the house. First 2019 tax pre-payment was sent out. Major expenses were Costa Rica vacation and the work I did on my GTI for a roadtrip to Montana.

Markets have been mostly flat but had a low spending month and better than average side hustle month :) Let them jumps continue like this and I'll reach 50k by summer.

Hey Everyone,

Nice to see you all doing well and moving in the right direction.   Here is my latest update from 22/03/2019.




It's + £1,480 for the month, which I'm very happy with.  My YTD number is around £4,884.


Over this period I also had to pay around £1,500 in work expenses which will be paid back to me tomorrow, so next month could be great.  Only downside is I've had work in my house which will be expensive.  It's nice to have work done and know my N/W is still growing though.

I'm jumping on this thread for some accountability and motivation.

My story: I'm married to a not-very-Mustachian-but-not-super-un-Mustachian-type and have two little kiddos (1 and 3). I recently finished up some long schooling/training in the sciences and finally have my first "real" job with a decent salary. Our savings has been mediocre in the past, mostly due to low salaries, living in a HCOL area, having kids and most significantly, TOO MANY EXCUSES. Now we're back in our very affordable hometown and I'm ready to start really focusing on building up our net worth. We still have some work to do on cutting expenses and increasing our savings rate, but we're making some solid progress. I'm hoping to hit 100k by this time in 2020. We'll see how it plays out!

This year so far:
Jan 2019: 49,400
Feb 2019: 52,900
Mar 2019: 55,500

Tracking net worth.

EOY 12.2016 - (-£10,250)
EOY 12.2017 - £4,360
EOY 12.2018 - £40,620
01.2019 - £42,662 (+2,042)
02.2019 - £43,796 (+1,134)
03.2019 - £44,582 (+786)
04.2019 - £49,305 (+4,723)

Assets = £57,376
Student loans = (£8,071)

Very close to halfway!

We have got to get our roof done real soon. We have a smaller house but it will still be at least several thousand dollars. Thank God, we have the money to get it done.

If you've got a little bit of handyman ability and watch a few Youtube videos, you can do the roof yourself rather cheap. We re-roofed our rental last fall with about 14sq shingles, new decking, tool rental, and dumpster all for less than $3700. We were quoted around $7,000 to have a roofing company do it. It took us 5 1/2 solid days but we also had a few layers to tear off and some rotten fascia boards to repair before installing the new decking. If you just do an overlay I bet we could've done it in 2-3.

Note that we had never attempted roofing before this project either.

That's the thing, it's great for it to be an inconvenience rather than a major stress! Good luck with yours :)

Got bonus 1 of 3 today so we were able to put a significant chunk toward the student loan and we paid our 2018 taxes (first time owing, ouch). Student loan should be paid off end of next month and then we'll have no debt for the first time ever! Excited to be debt free and hit our 100k NW before our first baby makes their appearance this summer.

I'm hopeful that by the end of April I'll hit the 30k mark so long as the market doesn't go the wrong way and offset my contributions.

I do not include my savings to buy expensive "fun items" like new cellphone, electronics etc. as it is not very big, and I just started it in July. My checking account is also not included as it has money I will likely spend this month.

Net worth:
Dec2017:$7800
Apr2018:$13,200
Aug2018:$22,800
Sep2018: $23,645
Oct2018: $23,658
Nov2018: $23,948 (+$290)
Dec2018: $23,960 (+12)
Jan2019: $27,100 (+3140)
Feb2019:$29,443 (+2343)

Goal for 2019 is to make it to $45K.

Mar2019: $31,603 (+2160)- Took me 7 months to make it out of the 20k's. I hope to not spend that much time in the 30k's, but everyone should still brace for the recession that this achievement is likely to trigger!

Not too much contribution from the market this month, but managed to do well with plain old SR. Goal remains 100k before 2020.

Since repman has graduated to the $100k-250k group, I thought I would take up the mantle of linking to the spreadsheet (and updating it when I can).

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
July 2018  - $65,798.53
Aug 2018 - $72,231.70
Sept 2018 - $76,755.71
Oct 2018 -  $64,348.89
Nov 2018 - $70,839.76
Dec 2018 - $58,351.73
Jan 2019 - $78,256.31
Feb 2019 - $87,795.97
Mar 2019 - $67,121.29

This was the big month that I knew was coming. We had to purchase another vehicle. Had to take out a loan for it since we are late to this FI party. Unlike some, I don't count the value of our home or our vehicles in our net worth. It makes our numbers look a little less rosy, but it's also more realistic since we can't use the value of our home or vehicle as a liquid asset.

For context: I'm 29 in a HCOL city. I'm married, but these are my own numbers since we keep our finances separate. Includes cash, retirement, and credit cards, which are used for normal expenses and paid off in full every month.

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.

9/29/17 - $11,511 (First post in thread)
6/30/18 - $36,000
7/31/18 - $38,676
8/31/18 - $40,277
9/30/18 - $50,572
10/31/18 - $46,085
11/30/18 - $48,956
12/31/18 - $46,003
1/31/19 - $53,028
2/28/19 - $58,276
3/31/2019 - $67,340

March Notes

Big month - I received a bonus and we got our tax refund. Did have some large unusual expenses including an $800 car repair bill and $1,400 in medical bills for the DD, otherwise the month would have been extraordinary. I can't complain though, progress is progress and everyone is happy and healthy!

This was a very busy month for my family and I.
First I sold off my full sized truck. Had been holding onto it because of I just didn't want to let it go, but knew it was time to make a move on from it. I bought a little ford focus hatchback to replace it. Paid for it in full!

Have been getting everything ready for my family of 4 to become a family of 5 this Friday! My wife C-section is scheduled for Friday and it will be our first little girl. Very excited about it! Thankfully all of our premium has been meet already for this year so everything from here on out the insurance is covering, which will most likely include some NICU stay for the little one.

Other than that we have just been going along as smoothly as we currently can.
Keep up the good work everyone!

Hi everyone. I spent 24 months in the Race to Positive Net Worth thread and 2 months in Saving to $10K. Happy to join everyone here now! I'm really starting to feel the momentum as things have started to turn positive for me, and can't wait to graduate from this thread too.

You should pat yourself on the back -- you're doing great @peppermint!   You are covering this ground way faster than I did!

First I sold off my full sized truck.

Have been getting everything ready for my family of 4 to become a family of 5 this Friday!

Congrats on getting rid of the truck! I am currently trying my best to convince my husband that he does not need to buy a 4-door pickup truck for his upcoming vehicle purchase. He does use a truck for work and would like to be able to cart our two kiddos around, but there's gotta be a better way!

And best wishes for an easy delivery for your wife on Friday!

I've been using Personal Capital to track our net work for a few months, this will be a fun place to keep track and more importantly keep ourselves on the saving path!  I've only used the site to factor investment/retirement accounts against mortgage and car loan balance, I have cash set aside for home improvements\emergency so I didn't want that money to show a inflated NW, also have not used homes value to factor into the calculation.


September 1, 2018 - $16,853
October 1, 2018 - $20,234
April 2, 2019 - $64,781 (forgot about updating this, but was pretty exciting to see!)
