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

It's Net Present Value. Taking the future monthly income and turning it into a lump sum now by undoing inflation and market gains over that time period.

First off I just want to say great job to all of us guys and girls that are working very hard on this goal.  I know I'm very proud of me and I'm proud of you all too. Love seeing all the numbers go up no matter how little or how much it does.
I'm 62% of the way there and looking forward to graduating to the next level.

I discovered MMM only a few weeks ago and it's like my world has opened up. I know I don't make a lot-I live comfortably but I can't imagine saving at the rates I'm seeing some of you save monthly.

Starting with April NW:  $38,442.00 This is going to plummet in september as I start an 18 month grad program that I'm paying for out of pocket + any grants/scholarships/tuition reimbursement I can get my hands on.

Jan 2016: 15,895
Feb 2016: 17,250
Mar 2016: 19,597
Apr 2016: 20,332

Did not save as much as I wanted, but it is going in the right direction. Less happy about having to change the ETFs I use in my portfolio.

03/2016:   73,705.82
04/2016:   81,933.67 +11.16%

I can see the finish line... if only I didn't have ~$9k of tuition to be paid this year. We'd hit $100k in September probably. At this point I estimate we'll hit it in November.

January 2015: CHF 49,805
...
November 2015: CHF 66,524
December 2015: CHF 67,473
January 2016: CHF 78,098
February 2016: CHF 81,995
March 2016: CHF 78,422
April 2016: CHF 84,996

I should get to 100k invested also around November.
In summer, I will renew around half of my mortgage (200k out of 480k).
-> Old interest rate: 1.75% and the new interest will be around a tenth of that. Thus, around 0.18%... will boost my savings a bit :)

Welcome to the newcomers to the race and congrats to all on your progress!

I shook the couch cushions, and it turns out I just barely - by $25.57 - topped 100k at the end of March. See you all in the nextthread!

Welcome to the newcomers and congrats to those moving on! I had a pretty good month considering I spent a chunk on new equipment for an upcoming backpacking trip. My goal is to be over 100k by September, but I think I may cross the 100k mark shortly when I recalculate my pension worth. I conservatively measure it but think I've been undervaluing the monthly increases and will recalculate when I receive my annual statement.

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
5/1/2016 $85,587.91

New to the board
According to Mint this has been my net worth since I started tracking.

08/2013: $9,216- had been making 18k, got a job making 27k
11/2013: $12,398
02/2014: $14,413- new job in December making 38k
05/2014: $15,023

08/2014: $17,890
11/2014: $29,589
02/2015: $34,041
05/2015: $38,284 -new job at 55k

08/2015: $58,584- added in husband's savings (earmarked for a car)
11/2015: $67,385
02/2015: $77,264
04/2016: $85,002

A few of the big jumps can be explained by adding accounts to Mint which makes August of last year look pretty amazing. I added in some information to explain some changes that affected my savings.

Info about me: I'm 28 years old, married, but single earner while my husband is in school. I currently make 55k and rent. 1 car and one doggie.

We're on track to hit 100k net worth by end of year, but our net worth will take a dramatic hit next year since we'll probably be buying a car for my husband and we won't be living in subsidized housing anymore. However, he will also be graduating and earning some money so it might be a wash.

The last time I checked in here my net worth was $20000 and some change now it is $22604!!!  My debt is going down slowly but surely.  It stands at 6062 I remember when it was over $11000.

Since this is a holiday weekend, I don't expect any change with the markets closed so I'll post my numbers now.
Just over 20K in 11 months...not great by people on here but I've been slowing digging myself out of debt. Last CC will be paid off in June and then all that money will roll over to savings/investing and then it will grow faster.
And not much growth this month as we had some house improvement projects going on-built a fence and new concrete patio slab.

06/30/15   $43,137.96
07/31/15   $44,941.13
08/31/15   $42,043.10
09/30/15   $38,770.91
10/31/15   $44,941.34
11/30/15   $46,401.01

Nov-15   $13,419.84
Dec-15   $19,983.09

May-16    $37,450.56

Misleading because I had to pay 3500 upfront for some classes my work will reimburse for, but not until September.  For now it is what it is.  I very briefly had over 40k this month though, so that was cool (looking at the bright side).

First I compared last month to this month:

4/30/16: $14,500
5/31/16: $15,350

Which doesn't seem like much, and could have been better because reasons, but then I went back through the spreadsheet and realized it's been two years since this started:

5/31/14: -$20,950
5/31/16: $15,350

Which is $36,300 in two years. And next year I hope things will go a little faster. I could be to 100K in four years, which considering I was just about zero this time last year, would be $0 to $100,000 in five years!

Newer people, if you haven't already, come join the tracking spreadsheet! It's getting a little lonely as people graduate and it's a great way to see progress!

Just checking back in. My NW went down (By ~175ish). Boo. (Had some large expenses-one that won't happen for hopefully a few more years and another that is the beginning of the downtrend of NW with grad school). On the plus side, I got a small (4%) raise that is going directly into my 403b upping my retirement savings to over 11%.

April-16 NW:  $38,442.00
May-16 NW:   $38,264.52

Decided to jump in the group if you all don't mind. I just merged all my stuff into "One Sheet to rule them all v3" so my data is a bit limited right now.

Well, I have been away for quite a while, and I didn't track all of my accounts for a few of the months. Things were pretty rough what with my dad's death, my wife and I leaving the Mormon church, my ADD diagnosis, and some health problems induced by my frequent travel to Mexico for work.

Good news though, $124,966.64! Quite a bit of that is due to timing the market with the purchase of my house, because it increased in price by almost $32k since I bought it in November (based on Zillow, which has been pretty accurate for my area).

I think I would like to start this challenge again, but with investments only this time. Turns out I have just as much money in investments now ($29k) as my net worth when I started the challenge ($20k) two years ago. $100k in two years for someone with a single income supporting my wife, 3.5. year old, and 2 year old on a salary of about $60k (before taxes). It is possible!

Dude that's rough. Losing your Father and your Religion are tough things. Awesome job on pushing forward even with the changes. Feel free to message me if you need an anonymous person to write to.

Wow, getting so close, congrats!! I anticipate being where you were in March by the end of this year. It feels so slow, but on the bright side I am over $13K ahead of where I was at the beginning of the year. We're all killin' it, though!!

4th January 2016 : 55k.
29th March 2016: 58k.
28th June 2016: 77k.

It's not bad considering the markets haven't been that good. I'm hopefully in the next 3 months that we get past 100k.

Great progress! Congratulations grads.

I'm quietly chuffed that mine has doubled over the 16 months since I started tracking. I wouldn't have predicted that at all.
