3/1/2016: $10,106
4/1/2016: $10,624
5/1/2016: $14,504
6/31/2016: $18,193
7/30/2016: $19,296

Soooo close to $20K! Almost certainly going to hit $25K by end of year, markets willing.
I made this thing:
 A Purrsonal finance workbook - an illustrated cat-filled money workbook (with plenty of mustachianism)

At least 50% of my business plan is cats, 25% is glitter spandex, the journal

How did I increase my net worth by 82% per year on a $39K income? The best budgeting software in the world, YNAB. Start your free trial now, ask me questions!

You're almost half way there (assuming continuous compounding and continuous contribution...$30k in this case)!

Going to go backwards hard this month and next with the purchase of a home. September will make most of that back up, though.

Hit the 20k mark yesterday. It feels great. I was at 0 in November coming out of school. Sometimes it feels like progress is so slow, but really it's significant. :)

I'd like to join in. I have had my big girl job outside of school since last May. Including the value of my car, I just recently became positive. $14,000 student loans and about $6k in my 401k.

8/1/2016: $2,136

Right now I'm at 30k. Started the year at 10k. Hoping to hit 45k by the end of the year! (Planned vacation will cut in the savings rate).

I did it! I finally graduated to the next thread! I've been MIA for the past few months due to life getting busy. I started a business, didn't enjoy it ended up selling it for about what i put in. I found a new job in a new industry, and now I've finally crossed the finish line! 101,705! All of which is liquid assets.

It happens quicker than you think, now i just wish Denver was still an affordable city, so I can start growing some home equity.

Wow, six figures liquid! Are you planning on doing any Vanguard index investing with some of that?

Closing costs for the house we're buying next week will set us back about $7k, down to $54k. $100k grad date looks like Dec 2017.

I have about 91,000 in investments, and the rest in cash. My plan from here is to save up for a down payment on a place, while still maxing out my retirement accounts, wish me luck!

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.

Just hit $102k today. I'm moving onto the $250k thread.

Hello everyone - long-time spreadsheet lurker here :)

It looks like the spreadsheet got messed up on August 5th.  I think someone added a row to the very top, and that messed everything up?  I deleted the top row, and I *think* that fixed it, but if not, we may have to revert to the August 2nd version.  Check your data?

Brokerage: $14,862
HSA: $3561
TSP: $47,979
Roth IRA: $22,893
Pension contributions: $7407

Debts:
Credit: -$5692 (revolving, includes work reimbursements)
________

I made it! 36 months since I first crossed $10k in August of 2013. I graduated school in June 2012 and had a full year without much progress. I believe I started reading MMM sometime that year and really began making changes when I switched to a higher paying job in Sept 2013.

I had a few backslides from tax issues and moving to switch jobs twice, leading to paycheck gaps and moving expenses. But both times increased my salary substantially. I am actually planning another strategic move soon to lower my COL in a new area.

What I did well the last three years: increasing my TSP with every raise, maxing an HSA, maxing my Roth IRA, picking up a side job that sometimes pays better hourly than my day job, automatic savings allocations for a house down payment. My paycheck after deductions and savings allocations is less money than I was regularly spending in 2012, when my salary was 50% of what it is now :)

Hope to see the rest of you soon in the race to $250k thread!!

Hey folks, long time lurker here. I haven't been very vocal on here, but I've been cheering you all on!

I was expecting to hit the 6 figure net worth later this year, but was surprised to pass it this month! Keep it up for those of you still working on it, and see you over at the 250k thread. :D

3/1/2016: $10,106
4/1/2016: $10,624
5/1/2016: $14,504
6/31/2016: $18,193
7/30/2016: $19,296

Soooo close to $20K! Almost certainly going to hit $25K by end of year, markets willing.
I JUST CROSSED $20K!!

8/30/2016: $21,334

There will probably be a dip this month, though, as I'm taking a month off between jobs, so the markets would have to go gangbusters to make up for the $1,100 in expenses without income.
I made this thing:
 A Purrsonal finance workbook - an illustrated cat-filled money workbook (with plenty of mustachianism)

At least 50% of my business plan is cats, 25% is glitter spandex, the journal

How did I increase my net worth by 82% per year on a $39K income? The best budgeting software in the world, YNAB. Start your free trial now, ask me questions!

Congratulations, and good job keeping your expenses so low.

I MADE IT at $100,184!

I ran the race and crossed the finish line. I broke that red tape that has been elusively in front of me for 3 years...

Well the career job has been fun... and its been real... but it sure hasn't been real fun. I better race on to the next finish line.

Ah, sooo close! In USD I would have made it by now ;)

September will be an expensive month: Paying taxes, holiday for 2 weeks in asia, paying mortgage for Okt to Dec.
Unless the market goes up, will be impossible to finish this race in September....

$40,061 - Dec 2015
$43,153 - Jan 2016
$47,634 - Feb 2016
$50,404 - Mar 2016

$54,717 - May 2016
$55,014 - Jun 2016
$59,924 - Jul 2016
$55,527 - Aug 2016

Regressed for the first time since I started tracking.  Pretty big curveball got thrown at me, but I'm confident I'll re-group and surge past.

$61,117 - Sep 2016

Bounced back well enough, this month should be good to me, but October might be a bit more tumultuous.  Moving again.

At this rate it'll only take 8000 years to FIRE... Setting up my side business in January though, that should help a bit!

Actually at your rate of about $1,000 a month assuming 7% real rate of return and with a FIRE goal of $600,000 starting with $24,285 would only take 20.3 years to reach FIRE! Yah for compound interest!

Very true, I must trust in the higher power (of compound interest). Thanks :)

End of June Update:
Cash/Savings: $6,614
Mutual Funds (non-retirement, house savings): $10,568
Work Retirement Accounts: $39,193
NW: $56,375 (increase of $643)


Back in after over a year of not checking in!
Cash/Savings: $8,160
Mutual Funds (non-retirement, house savings): $10,956
Work Retirement Accounts:$57,777

NW: $76,893 (increase of $20,518 - average $1,578 per month since last check-in).

I have moved in with my girlfriend and our monthly expenses have dropped, I have also gotten a bit of a raise at work so I am gaining ground at a faster rate now.  I have spent some money on goodies though and I need to make sure I don't turn up the speed on the treadmill if I can avoid it.

At this rate I hope to break 100k in another year if I tighten up some loose ends.
