We did it!  Our net worth (including everything) is $101,521.89.  Woohoo six figures!  The market going back up was a big help this month.  As were some decreased expenses that gave us a couple hundred extra bucks.  $71,510 is in investments, and the rest is in various savings and checking accounts.  Moving on up to the next thread-though I think we'll be a bit slower than some other people on that climb.  We were hoping to hit $100,000 by the end of the year, and we made it with two months to go!  Woohoo!

Good luck to everyone else, keep it going :)

Congrats!! Hope to join you in a few months in the next thread!

I'm well above 100k in net worth however I'm at about 50k net worth outside of my house and my retirement funds. I'm going to join in this one. Looking to get to 100k net worth outside my house and retirement funds (not accessible until I'm 60) next year.

   How did you manage to avoid a dip in July-September?  Unlike everybody else, yours just goes up and up and up like the Energizer Bunny.

Right before the market turned I recieved a substantial raise that I dumped entirely into my defered compensation account. (I tripled my contributions)

If the market hadn't dipped I would have went up much faster. haha. Lucky timing I guess.

  Your post stood out to me because of the time period and somewhat similar numbers.  You started tracking around the same time I did.  You kicked my butt, however.  See post #680, a few above.  You started with less than me and ended up with more than me in October.

I need to kick my rear end into gear and get this net worth thing moving . . .

I'd like to join in, although I'm starting above $10,000. It seems like others have as well so hope it's ok.
Just started a journal on here with a plan of having $80K net worth (40K for me and 40K for my husband)by the end of 2017. Maybe this will motivate/help me to get to the $100K mark instead by that time.

As of 30 Oct - $30,648

I found MMM, joined the forums, and hopped on board with this challenge with around $70k net worth. Starting above $10,000 is quite alright!

Congrats to Apple for graduating to the next step!
Welcome to the challenge $40kby40!
And congrats to everyone else who seems to be making solid progress in their financial goals.

I had a good month with markets recovering a bit, a nice raise at work coming through, and temporarily having a roommate for an extra few hundred bucks a month. Long way to go but ahead of my goals right now.

8/1/2015           $52,700.00
9/1/2015           $57,358.64
10/1/2015   $59,144.58
11/1/2015   $63,499.72

Ha, thanks, well I feel the same way about some other posters who are kicking my butt! I guess that's the whole point of this thread huh? The more butt kicking, the more motivation. :D

I am here to make you all feel better about yourselves. :)

I have gone from -$52,745.00 in May 2014 to -$10,177.00 in October 2015. My stretch goal was a big fat $0 net worth by the end of 2015. I know it's still possible, but it will definitely be a stretch! Fingers crossed!!!

Curse you, student loans!!!

Finally remembered my password! Things are moving great especially with the market rise recently. Looking at my accounts they've had a $10,000 swing over the past month. It's weird to second guess if I should spend $5-10 on a meal when your account moves that much. Anyways I'm hoping to reach $100,000 by year end. It'll be a stretch but with some market tailwind could very well happen. I'm jealous of the people who are able to put away a couple thousand a month, it's a good motivator though, to encourage me to up my commissions.

I've read MMM for about a year now, but I'm new to the forums. I was recently promoted at work and my family and I are making a cross-country move as part of the transfer. My wife and I are 27, with no children and no student loan debt. We do carry a significant amount of CC debt (all at 0% with the use of balance transfer checks (2-3% per transaction)). We are currently trying to max out all tax-advantaged accounts (~50k/year, primary) while also paying down the CC debt (secondary). Our current goal is to reach $100k in net worth by June 2016 and $250k by her 30th birthday, with an eye towards FIRE sometime in our late 30s. We are also wanting to raise a family, but aren't planning on having children anytime in the next few years. Below is our net worth trajectory over the past 6 months:

March 2015: $36,337
April 2015: $38,120
May 2015: $42,347
June 2015: $47,346
July 2015: $56,109
August 2015: $59,985
September 2015: $59,189
October 2015: $65,204


November 2015: $67,240

Will be looking to contribute more to 401(k) over next few paychecks to minimize income tax in spring of 2016.

I'm so close...got paid again, 401k contribution is out of my check but hasn't hit Vanguard yet, so I'm adding it anyway.

$7725.02 net cash (zeroing current CC balance)
$38912.77 house equity
$3085.31 employer stock
$3136.02 Franklin Templeton
$43,068.59 Vanguard

$96,975.13

SO CLOSE!!!  I even spent ~$450 I wouldn't have normally spent this month...definitely makes me want to curb spending even more so I break 100k, hahaha...

Just in investments/housing - I'm there!

$57526 401k/IRA/taxable
$48255 home equity if Zillow is to be believed (a proper appraisal is on my list of things to do so I can drop PMI)

$105,781! :)

Last month: 87,861.41
This month: 88,795.86
+934.45

Some headwinds this month, but still moving forward. Should still beat $90,500 target by EOY!

Hoping to hit $100k by the end of the first quarter.

Market headwinds continue, but some additional income (hike, arrears and canada tax benefits arrears) has kicked in to push the savings higher and buy more into the uncertain market.
June 2015: $65,550
July 2015: $74,250
Aug 2015: $73,900
Sep 2015: $78,300

90K looks difficult by Dec 2015. But still on target for 100k by Mar / Apr 2016.
Made a minor accounting adjustment. Used to consider the 2nd paycheck of the month for the following month's budgeting. But that used to cause a bit of confusion in calculations. I had to make that adjustment eventually and I bit the bullet this month. That reflects in the sudden jump of close to 7700 this month.
But this number is a correct reflection of NetWorth (all the accounts put together) as they stand on 31st Oct 2015 .

June 2015: $65,550
July 2015: $74,250
Aug 2015: $73,900
Sep 2015: $78,300
Oct 2015: $86,014
Steady progress and ~2,600 growth this month despite a lot of un-planned expenses this month. A bit of tightening up to do in the holiday season to end the year on a high.

June 2015: $65,550
July 2015: $74,250
Aug 2015: $73,900
Sep 2015: $78,300
Oct 2015: $86,014
Nov 2015: $88,620

Market went sideways, so NW went up by the amount saved ($2k), which now puts my family at $55,100, up from $0 in July 2014.

9/1: $78,487.07
10/1: $81,428.69
11/1: $87,887.66
12/1: $90,220.55

Smaller increase than last month (no huge market gains), but ever upward!! With three paychecks this month and a stipend for my winter coaching position, December should be a great month for the NW.

Still aiming to hit $100,000 sometime in the March-May time frame - hoping for March.

Thanks!  I've been lurking on here since October, and finally decided to join up today.  It's been inspiring to read about so many successes, and a great motivator for me.  Aiming to learn as much as I can from you all.

Welcome AcftW!

my update:
9/1/2015   $57,358.64
10/1/2015 $59,144.58
11/1/2015 $63,499.72
12/1/2015 $65,796.16

My goal is to start the new year breaking the $70K barrier, should be doable as December is sort of a 3 pay cheque month (3rd pay cheque on January 1 and I do my NW update the 1st of each month). If things go well, I think I can graduate from this group by end of summer 2016. Happy saving to all!

It was negative all of my life until two or three years ago (at one point negative $200k or so).  I never tracked it because it was too depressing.

$27,512.11 November 2014
$32,550.93 January 2015
$37,692.25 April  2015
$41,623.39 June 2015
$35,929.89 July 2015 (Ouch!!!)
$45,275.83 October 2015

$54,907 November 30, 2105

17.5% increase?  Somebody check my math.

I've read MMM for about a year now, but I'm new to the forums. I was recently promoted at work and my family and I are making a cross-country move as part of the transfer. My wife and I are 27, with no children and no student loan debt. We do carry a significant amount of CC debt (all at 0% with the use of balance transfer checks (2-3% per transaction)). We are currently trying to max out all tax-advantaged accounts (~50k/year, primary) while also paying down the CC debt (secondary). Our current goal is to reach $100k in net worth by June 2016 and $250k by her 30th birthday, with an eye towards FIRE sometime in our late 30s. We are also wanting to raise a family, but aren't planning on having children anytime in the next few years. Below is our net worth trajectory over the past 9 months:

March 2015: $36,337
April 2015: $38,120
May 2015: $42,347
June 2015: $47,346
July 2015: $56,109
August 2015: $59,985
September 2015: $59,189
October 2015: $65,204
November 2015: $67,240


December 2015: $66,735

[/quote]

Took a drop due to performance of stock market, but was able to snatch up quite a few shares on the cheap...will bode well for 2016!

I am based in Switzerland, thus calculating in Swiss Francs (CHF), which at the moment is trading almost 1-to-1 to the USD. Following numbers are just my invested money (I am all in, so no emergency account, just what I need for 1 month & ignoring the value of my apartment as It is not an investment and 95% of it is financed by mortgages):

January 2015: CHF 49,805
...
November 2015: CHF 66,524

Looks like I'll end 2015 at almost exactly 50K NW. I'm not sure what my NW was this time last year, as I wasn't tracking it particularly closely, but I'd guess 29K plus-or-minus. A reasonable goal for 2016 is 25K saved; my stretch goal is 35K.
