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.

Excellent! Congratulations!!! :)

Thanks!  Hopefully, I'll see you on the 100k-250k thread in a couple of months

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.

$91,055.26 - beat my target of $90,500 for the year but was hoping to be a bit closer to the finish line.

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!

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.

Started 2016 at around 55k NW (though, like everyone else, have been getting facepunched by the market this week).

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.

Mutual Funds (non-retirement, house savings): $10,019
Work Retirement Accounts: $44,890

Total: $61,285 (Increase $7101, $789 per month average)

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 :/

Jan 2016: $90,032

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!

$47,634 - 1 Feb 2016

I'm impressed with how I've  gone up even though my investments have gone down significantly.

I had honestly forgotten about this thread until it popped up in my Google Drive sidebar as being updated recently! I updated net worth figures for the last 12 months. Last time I updated, I was at $31k and am now up to $71k. Should be on track to reach $100k by the end of 2016 (assuming the stock market doesn't tank even more...).

I broke my Goal of 70k networth to start 2016.
$70,395.59 to be exact, an increase of 6.5%.

February 1 2016 - $74,587.69
I include my DB pension in my NW, and keeping a very strong savings rate, thus why I'm able to sustain growth despite the markets. I'm just hoping the markets stay low or fall further this year as I'm in the accumulation phase!

My roommate moved out, but think I might have a new friend lined up to take over to keep the extra money coming in each month.

Yay! Despite the large losses in my portfolio this month I made enough money to still come out slightly ahead in net worth.

On to 250k.
Congrats! See you in the other thread :-)

9/1: $78,487.07
10/1: $81,428.69
11/1: $87,887.66
12/1: $90,220.55
1/1: $94,782.59
2/1: $92,959.06

Brutal!!! Down almost $2,000 in NW in January even though it was a three-paycheck month. The market drop in January stung, and will likely push back my $100,000 finish line - it looked in December like I could make it by March...now I think May is more likely, unless the market swings up.

Ouch. We had a $5400 tuition payment to pay, plus almost $1000 car repair, and of course we lost a fair amount in our investments. I'm pretty happy we only went down around $3k, actually.

Still hoping to hit $100k by November or so.

February was a really good month for me! Getting so close to that 50k mark and almost half way there to the 100k finish line! Haven't felt this excited to hit a milestone like that since I made my last student loan payment a while back. Judging by my back of the napkin calculations I should be able to surpass 50k net worth by the end of March as long as I keep my spending in check and of course the market is kind to me.

Up about 7,767 tooooo..... 100,095.24. Hell yeah! When I saw my stock fund (VT) drop slightly today, I knew it'd be close when I got home to tabulate. Thankfully, this is the month that my 403b drops in our lump sum match for the prior year. Took 20 months for me to graduate. I'll go join the next thread. Thanks to all for making this process a little more fun. Hope you all graduate in short order :). Cheers!!

01/31/16  -   $ 44,059
02/29/16  -   $46,831


Like everybody else January was a real killer.   But I've mostly recovered.   This second half of 2016 will see my net worth really skyrocket as the last CC will be paid off and getting rid of the car. So only debt will be mortgage.

9/1/2015           $57,358.64
10/1/2015   $59,144.58
11/1/2015   $63,499.72
12/1/2015   $65,796.16
1/1/2016           $70,395.59
2/1/2016           $74,587.69
3/1/2016           $77,683.18

Humming along. Couple expenses coming up which will slow me down a bit the next couple months. Looking at that 100k mark by late summer/early fall.
Most of my debts are paid off now (one small left to a parent with no interest rate) so I think in a few months my personal finances will truly just be automated and I'm going to stop looking at it so closely.

Congrats to SpareChange on graduation month!
