Lower than avg expenses + holiday OT = good month. Up over 5k (6.02%) to just over 90K. Home stretch! ;).

Up 56,770.74 for the year.

I am based in Switzerland, thus calculating in Swiss Francs (CHF almost same as USD):

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

December 2015: CHF 66,375
Down a little bit, but I get a salary rise of about 5% and a bonus for 2015 in January. So hopefully I can save and invest more in 2016. Target is to get to 100k by end of 2016; also depending on the market of course.

Nice pooplips!

We hit $57,650 at the end of the year. January is not going to be good for the NW, I suspect. Something like $9k in unusual expenses on top of the usual $3k spending with only about $6k of net income (+ about $850 in deductions/savings so about $7k). -$5k here we come! If I can break it out over a couple of months or reduce it via credit card rewards, I will. It's still going to hurt though.

Thanks Pooperman.

Yeah I just read that on your journal this morning. We might not have a great January as well with some medical bills coming due but so it goes. I dont know about you but I think 2016 is going to be a bad ass year for anyone with "poop" in their username. ;)

I broke my Goal of 70k networth to start 2016.
$70,395.59 to be exact, an increase of 6.5%.
I think I'll slow down on growth a little over the next few months with things like ei and cpp (canada) payments coming off the paycheques again, as well as property taxes, insurance, etc. Hoping to graduate from this group in 2016. Conservative target is by end of December but if things go alright I might be able to get it done by the end of Summer.

Happy new year to all, may your stache start to curl in 2016!

2015-08-31 €9,999
2015-09-30 €9,986
2015-10-30 €14,504
2015-11-30 €16,724
2015-12-31 €16,743
A very small increase from last month due to less savings, but 2015 ends with an overall increase of 67%.

I have a bit of mixed feelings about the conditions for 2016. The rate which controls the investment tax rate and student loan interest rate is dropping towards zero, but the tax code was changed to ensure a minimum investment tax rate.

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.

1/1: $94,782.59

When I started tracking net worth (in August), I estimated that it'd take me until June 2016 to hit $100k...wow! Barring a crisis, I should cross the $100k threshold in March 2016. Cool!

Also proud of my total 2015 increase in net worth: $30,000

Congrats on the awesome savings, everyone!

I made it!  I crossed $100,000 shortly before Christmas, then held my breath while the markets zig zagged this past week.  But I just checked and I'm still north of $100k, therefore making it officially official.

Finally being able to join the race!

I'm probably getting married in a few years, and my pay is far from high, so this will be a challenge, but I'd like to set the time limit at: 12/31/2020 max
It will be good motivation to ask for a raise/apply to better jobs, and keep on being mustachian in all other areas...

Quick history of my finances:
dec 2011   -8 700 €   
dec 2012   -8 800 €
dec 2013   -4 270 €
dec 2014    1 660 €
dec 2015   13 560 € (guess which year I met MMM ^^)

I'll be joining this thread for 2016.  My NW may actually decrease this year due to a job change.  Posting mostly to hold myself accountable for my results.

Total Assets: $174,000
Total Debt (including mortgage): $141,426

Jan 2016 - $32,795

Just hit $100k in investment for the first time on December 28th.  Took us roughly 2 years and 10 months from our first investment.  I'm curious to see how long the next $100k takes.

I've passed 100k if I factor in home equity, but I closed the year around 61k invested - I'm hoping to break 100k just in investments in 2016, so I'll stick around! :D

Okay - time to join this one. I want to make this past 100k this year and we (wife and myself) should be able to do that easily mainly because the mortgage is about to be paid off. I'm not including home equity or super (Australian retirement account that you can't access until 60).

4th January 2016 : 55k.

Realistically, I'm looking to hit $75K by the end of 2016, with a stretch-goal of $80K. I can't wait to hit $100K!

I have a good job, but I can't see myself staying in it for 5 more years. Great benefits, but I am fairly bored in it and would like to do other things with my life. I think if I could get a NW of $100K with about $20K in cash, I could feel comfortable with the risk of trying something else. I just want to have the cushion of being able to quit anything I'm not happy with. The last thing I want to do is quit my ho-hum but secure job for something that sounds good but turns out to be pure misery. I've had a pure misery job, know how easily I could be in one and know a great deal of people continue in one because they have no other choice.  I want to keep at least 1-yr of living expenses on hand for bugging out.

Good luck! Sometimes a leap like that turns out even better than you expected.  I quit a secure government job just over four years ago to move to the other side of the country (I quit with no job lined up)..fast forward to now - I'm in a new field entirely, my salary has doubled since then and I'm really quite happy. :)

$90k is more likely for me this year, but a stretch goal of $100k sounds good. :D

Considering that the markets haven't really pulled any of our weight this past year, you've done great, threadmate. Pure savings grit!

I think you have the right idea. I just resigned from my current job and am starting a new job this month that pays better but the new company is much smaller and not as risk free as my old job. However, with a decent size emergency fund and investments I don't feel worried at all about the transition.

So last few months have been rough. We had our first baby in October and my SO quit their job to take care of the baby. The market has also not been very friendly this year.

$25,773 - January 2014
$30,045 - February 2014
$31,471 - March 2014
$32,078 - April 2014
$35,123 - May 2014
$36,123 - June 2014
$36,423 - July 2014
$40,433 - August 2014
$43,019 - September 2014
$46,099 - October 2014
$48,814 - November 2014
$50,893 - December 2014
$52,022 - January 2015
$55,205 - February 2015
$56,665 - March 2015
$60,331 - April 2015
$63,932 - May 2015
$65,370 - June 2015
$68,261 - July 2015
$68,484 - August 2015
$70,260 - September 2015
$76,040 - October 2015
$77,524 - November 2015
$77,689 - December 2015

We really wanted to hit $80k by the end of the year but did not make it :(. I guess a $26,796 increase in net worth compared with 2014 is not bad. Next year includes a job change with better pay and a pay out of all my unused PTO from my old job. 100k here we come in 2016!

I've passed 100k if I factor in home equity, but I closed the year around 61k invested - I'm hoping to break 100k just in investments in 2016, so I'll stick around! :D

Realistically, I'm looking to hit $75K by the end of 2016, with a stretch-goal of $80K. I can't wait to hit $100K!

I have a good job, but I can't see myself staying in it for 5 more years. Great benefits, but I am fairly bored in it and would like to do other things with my life. I think if I could get a NW of $100K with about $20K in cash, I could feel comfortable with the risk of trying something else. I just want to have the cushion of being able to quit anything I'm not happy with. The last thing I want to do is quit my ho-hum but secure job for something that sounds good but turns out to be pure misery. I've had a pure misery job, know how easily I could be in one and know a great deal of people continue in one because they have no other choice.  I want to keep at least 1-yr of living expenses on hand for bugging out.

I think you have the right idea. I just resigned from my current job and am starting a new job this month that pays better but the new company is much smaller and not as risk free as my old job. However, with a decent size emergency fund and investments I don't feel worried at all about the transition.

Thanks for the support. Good luck in your new job, hopefully it will stand firm for quite a while. Worst comes to worst, I can always crash with the folks for awhile (not that anyone wants it to come to that!).

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
Oct 2015: $88,620
December turned out another negative month.
A lot of planned expenses during the holiday season went way over budget, with multiple visits across the border to the US.
As I am consolidating only this week the head winds in the market right into 2016 did not help either.

June 2015: $65,550
July 2015: $74,250
Aug 2015: $73,900
Sep 2015: $78,300
Oct 2015: $86,014
Nov 2015: $88,620
Dec 2015: $88,329

Missed the target of reaching 90K by end of 2015, but still on target to reach 100K by Mar / Apr 2016.
The overall gain of 39,829 in 2015 is not much of a jump from 38,300 in 2014.
While the 2nd one born in Dec 2014 and a bunch of related activities, like hosting the parents and in-laws for additional support added to the overall expenses, there were still a lot of unplanned expenses.
I better work further on the frugality muscles in 2016.

In on this thread
Started 2016 at around 55k NW (though, like everyone else, have been getting facepunched by the market this week).
Don’t wait for the perfect moment. Take the moment and make it perfect.

Same here. Similar NW and a bit depressed by what this down market might mean for the rest of the year...I suppose I might be in luck though since I decided to front load my 401K the first two months of 2016 and all the stocks will be "on clearance."

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


January 2016: $56,680

Took a pretty significant hit due to performance of stock market, but know things will eventually turn around. Until then...BUY CHEAP! 5 months to go until our $100k goal of June 2016.

I'll jump in this as well. Been lurking for about a year. I have a regular job 401k with nice matching, a TSP account from the National Guard and a regular taxable Vanguard account. Totals:

January 1, 2015 - $13,492
December 31, 2015 - $$35,251

My goal by the end of the year is to break $50,000. So far this year I've lost about $3,000 due to the markets. hahah It's kind of impressive. I try to look at it that way anyway :/

We were very lucky the last two months with the headwinds. As we inherited 10k and then got gifted another 5k. That puts us at least 6 months ahead of schedule. :)

Just broke into the 90Ks zone with Jan, a month late due to market headwinds and all the additional spending during the holiday season. This market turmoil may be long drawn out. Here's hoping that the push comes from savings in 2016 letting us buy more into the markets on sale.

Broke the $50k barrier... the wrong way. A bad month for the Pooperman household financially. There were some large one-off expenses totaling around $7k. That coupled with removing some accounts (details of why are in my journal) and the market means a drop of about $8k ($57k -> $49k). Ah well. At least the expenses are done with and we can move on!
