Updated the last couple months for me:

1/31/16: 71,733
2/29/16: 74,225

Slowly but surely. I'm hoping to hit $100k by the end of 2016, about 2.5 years since starting in May of 2014. Not a bad pace!!

I see some people tracking investments rather than NW, so in that vein, I'm in for my AT investments if you'll have me.

As of 3/8: $20,818.37

Sure hop in, track whatever you feel like.
NW of sock draw for all we care. Could be a very slow slog though. ;)

So many great posts here on the journey to freedom.  The 6 figure and 7 figure threads are waiting for you.  Keep the faith, it is coming.

I haven't done a proper update in a while, but this month I finally crossed back into 10K territory! *does 10K dance for the second time*

Hoping to hit the 20K mark by August, when I start my new position (with 20% pay increase!), and then I hope things will really take off!

hit 25k USD this week, although I should probably stick to my own currency, 17.8k GBP. My road to 100k will be in bursts rather than a steady increase, though, as I'm a college student just trying to find little moneymaking schemes here and there rather than having an actual income.

$25K for a college student is pretty good!

Not much progress in Feb too. While the Canadian holdings increased by ~2500, due to forex fluctuations the oversees numbers are trending lower in CAD. But we are back to the 35-40% savings levels and are plugging away at the investments.
Aug 2015: $73,900
Sep 2015: $78,300
Oct 2015: $86,014
Nov 2015: $88,620
Dec 2015: $88,329
Jan 2016: $90,032
Feb 2016: $90,600
Early update this months as the year-end bonus and a hefty tax refund gave a definitive push over the line, with a paycheck still remaining in the month. Took me 27 months to go from 10-100.

Dec 2013: ~10,000
Dec 2014: ~50,000
July 2015: $74,250
Aug 2015: $73,900
Sep 2015: $78,300
Oct 2015: $86,014
Nov 2015: $88,620
Dec 2015: $88,329
Jan 2016: $90,032
Feb 2016: $90,600
Mar 20th  2016: $107,112

Steaming along to the next goalpost.
Good luck everyone on your journeys and see you soon on the other thread.

Need to pay just over $1k in taxes, so my increase next month will be a bit smaller. But forward progress is good!

Joining! My NW won't grow as fast as everyone else here and I don't expect to hit 100k very soon... but that won't discourage me! Numbers are in euro btw (which is 1.09 dollar atm).

Hope to see you at the 100k mark before I'm old and grey!

Just did some conservative calculations and I should hit 100k at the end of 2020. Mind you, this includes zero interest or dividends, so it will hopefully be sooner. I've set myself a goal. I want to be at 100k at the end of 2018. I will need to get serious about side hustles though! What's life without a little challenge!

I'm with you, too! I'm looking at a NW of maybe $100K in 2020 if I'm really lucky! But side hustles are the key. :-)

1st post! My stretch goal is 125K by the end of the year if I get lucky with the market. I will be about 23.5 years old (sidenote: I can't believe I'm turning 23). More realistically I will probably hit 105k-110k barring any illnesses/family issues/injuries etc.

Me: Single male, 22 years old, NYC
Started at -12k in student debt when i graduated in 2015. During college, I paid down ~8k from earnings in college/internships.

Current stats:
Cash on hand: 20k. 15k is in the savings account to maintain the credit card. I have an additional 5k for instant liquidity (rent, paying the monthly credit card balance) without disrupting my long-term investment positions and getting slapped the 35% capital gains tax.
ETF: 10k
Cash for Investments (dry powder): 37k
401k: 5.5k - the match doesn't activate until I've stayed with the firm for 2-3 years so I'm ignoring the additional +5.5k match.
Traditional IRA: 5.5k as soon as I cash in the tax refund. It's sitting at home with my parents.

Total: 78K
Year-End Goal: 125K
62% there!

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.

An update for close to the end of the quarter: 58k.

So this is pretty pathetic but the returns haven't been good for us plus we have only made one investment in the market. In stating that we invested 10k and we've moved forward 3k. I suppose it's interesting to think about how poor returns can impact me. I think over the longer term we will still come out ahead so I'm not really that stressed.

We also have close to 10k in cash. I'm not including this because I'm only including invested assets. I expect to invest another 20k during the next quarter and we will see how we go.

Well this quarter hasn't been great return wise but I did sell my car which helps increase my net worth plus my bonus at work helped to pay down the last CC and will be finished either end of May or beginning of June.
My yearly raise should be effective April 15th and tax return is due any day now so I expect another big jump from March to April as well.

03/31/16   58,923.60

**I don't include my home value since we plan to stay in it forever. This is only IRA and 401K and savings and taxable accounts****

Mar-16   $99,265.54           Actually hit 100K during this month! Net was brought back under by a mortgage payment that has been withdrawn, but not reflected in the equity yet.


A couple stats and factoids.

Age: 25
Asset breakdown: 16% cash/savings. 26% investments, 31% Retirement account, 27% home equity.
Debt: Nothing other than mortgage. Watched my parents destroy any hope of retirement with credit cards.
Field: Public sector I.T. (Decent pay, but far from the 6 figure salaries that seem to be common around here)



Time to go start lurking in the 6 figure thread!

Somehow i just now saw this thread...and it is one i can actually not feel out of place :)

(2010-2013 amounts are my best guess. Didn't start tracking until 2014)

End of Year: Amount
2010: -$7,500
2011: $7,500
2012: $8,500 (bought a car - hence the relatively flat NW)
2013: $24,000
2014: $36,285 (Found MMM in October)
2015: $40,655 (Peaked at $48k, but then I liquidated some savings to buy a house)
Today: $48,000

There is a very slim chance i could hit 100k by the end of 2017...should get there in 2018 for sure.

March was a good month for me. Between my employer simple IRA company match being deposited, the market gains in general, and also some privately held company stock that I own increased the share price by 7%, I have seen a very nice jump in my net worth! Little bit of a milestone for me surpassing the $50k mark. Slow and steady my progress has been but finally crossing the half way mark is giving me extra motivation to stay the course.

Glad to see we have a bunch of new people joining in on the race! Good luck everyone and I am excited to watch your progress along the way!

Woohoo! We are still looking on track to hit $100k in November or so. Considering we totally overshot our goal of hitting $50k in 2015, I'm hoping we will smash this one too.

Damn, all of you are really impressive!
Real good looking progress CanyonMan, you are MILES ahead of nearly every other 25 year old out there, killin' it!

My update is as follows:

1/1/2016   $70,395.59
2/1/2016   $74,587.69
3/1/2016   $77,683.18
4/1/2016   $81,670.69

Most of this NW is in equity/Pension/retirement accounts so I'm just focusing on getting a larger Emergency Fund for the next few months as I've always gone a little light on cash in the bank.

Steaming along to the next goalpost.
Good luck everyone on your journeys and see you soon on the other thread.

Congratulations!! See you there :-)

1st post! My stretch goal is 125K by the end of the year if I get lucky with the market. I will be about 23.5 years old (sidenote: I can't believe I'm turning 23). More realistically I will probably hit 105k-110k barring any illnesses/family issues/injuries etc.

Welcome!

Going to have to figure out new plan for tracking net worth or I'm about to take a really big hit on paper :) Looks like I'm still officially a graduate even after paying for inspections and deposit!

Congrats!

Count me in! I simply must grow out this peach fuzz!

As of March:

No debts!
$13k EF
$1.5k house down
$10k retirement

$24.5k savings. EF is complete. Of savings, 2/3 goes to retirement and 1/3 goes to house down. Or about $1050/retirement and $500 house a month. So, my journey may take awhile. Hoping to get a raise or two, but my savings % is currently only 36%.
The good: 27 years old, 1 car, not renting anymore.
The bad: Single income, only about $17k in retirement, and no FI date.
The ugly: 1 year ago I was doing much better but lost all possessions due to mold. It has been an emotional roller coaster.

Thanks. I was fortunate enough to have a combination a desire to work, and the luck to be in the right place at the right time to get a stable job to carry me through college. I started working half time during my first semester of college, and full time during the first summer and never stopped. Hopefully it will pay off in a decade and I can sit back and enjoy FIRE while the people I envied back then look at retirement dates 30-40 years in the future.

You're looking pretty good yourself Woodro.

September 15 is one year from when I started working out of college, and it took me that long to buy a house and get my net worth high enough to make up for my student loans, so for the year before that it's all over the place, and for everything before that it's just paycheck to paycheck/tuition payment to tuition payment so nothing notable.  Looking at this it's going faster than I realized it was.  Average is about 4k a month to savings, but it will slow down since I don't get any side income or bonuses during the summer.  Should end up saving about 35k this year.  I'm sort of thinking about if there is anything I could do for extra money in the weekend/evenings during summer, which would help to up it.  Might just focus on doing some writing and hope that pays off eventually, and work on spending less, of course..

Me: Single male, 22 years old, NYC
Started at -12k in student debt when i graduated in 2015. During college, I paid down ~8k from earnings in college/internships.

Current stats:
Cash on hand: 20k. 15k is in the savings account to maintain the credit card. I have an additional 5k for instant liquidity (rent, paying the monthly credit card balance) without disrupting my long-term investment positions and getting slapped the 35% capital gains tax.
ETF: 10k
Cash for Investments (dry powder): 37k
401k: 5.5k - the match doesn't activate until I've stayed with the firm for 2-3 years so I'm ignoring the additional +5.5k match.
Traditional IRA: 5.5k as soon as I cash in the tax refund. It's sitting at home with my parents.

Total: 78K
Year-End Goal: 125K
62% there!

Good Lord, I wish I'd been in your position when I was your age! Wait until you can't believe you're turning 33... I'll be 34 this year and I'm on track to hit $80K NW by the end of the year.

I'm going to try to track my NW monthly this year to chart my progress. Starting 2016, I had a NW of $50,000. I'm hoping to grow it to over $75K.
Once I get to $100K, I think I will give myself permission to move into my own apartment, as I've spent the last 8 years living with the same roommate--saving a ton of money, but not getting as much privacy as I'd like.

Jan 2016 - $50,000
April 2016 -$57,000
May 2016 - $60,000
June 2016 - $63,000
July 2016 - $69,000 (profit sharing, plus market doing better - so glad I front loaded this year!)
Aug 2016 - $72,000
Sept 2016 - $74,000 (markets down, same deposits though)
Oct 2016 - $74,000 (uggghhh...)
Nov 2016 - $78,000 :D
Dec 2016 - $84,000 (Wooooo! Dale tu cuerpo a alregria, Macarena...!)

Me too I'm racing towards 100k, but I didn't initially posted since I was already at more than 10k when I started reading MMM (January 2014). Anyway I've decided to put down my progression to both keep track and analyze what I did.
I am in full mustachian mode since august 2014 (biking everywhere, homemade lunch, no shopping for materialistic shit, and so on).

My total assets in middle september 2012, when I finished my master (I'm now 29, working and living in Switzerland) and started working as a researcher at my university, was 11k chf:
1k swiss franc in a cash account
10k gold bullion inherited by my grandfather, never known him, it's actually the only thing I have left of him.

After ~28 months I've now a total of 66k swiss francs (switch job in between, started working in industry for a small bump in pay):
16k company pension plan
15k retirement account
10k bullion (I struggle to sell it, there is my fucking name engraved in it! from my grandpa!)
25k taxable account investment

I'm very happy for the moment (+55k in 28 months, ~2k/month in switzerland is very difficult), but is amazing to see that my total at the end of 2014 was 35k, and I did manage to save 31k only in the last 12 months.....

By end of 2015 I should reach 100k, also +89k in 40 months. It's amazing only to think about it :)

So I didn't post my progression for like 1.5 years :D cool to be looking back of what I thought was possible. Back then (january 2015) I already knew I was going to be a father, but woah what a change. I love my little baby daughter, but with my wife going back to 50 % part time job I had to provide more to our joint account.
Right now I'm at 91k, so I'm really near and I think I'll be there in September :) 9 months later then expected, but so many changes and my new job in august will provide another huge bump in pay that will speed things along nicely.

so middle september 2012 (11k) to end september 2016. 4 years (switzerland, avg salary after taxes 60k). And this without counting the emergency fund of ~8k which will put me theoretically at 99k :DDD

Just working my current numbers and we cracked 100k.
Pretty awesome.
Usually I would change the gauntlet to 100k invested now which would put us 25k out. But due to our expatriation plans investing has been put on hold for now.
Thanks for all the encouragement everyone. :)

Been meaning to add my numbers, but still have to figure out a couple numbers.

Namely, what value should I give to a pension (teacher's pension)? I'm sure there is a how to around here somewhere, just haven't come across it.

Would that be the same as "if you were to "sell" it today, it would be worth this much" value?
