Well the streak of raising my net worth for 9 consecutive month's came to end sadly. Moved into a new place and needed to buy a few small appliances as well as some other one time expenses that hit me hard this past month. July is a 3 pay check month and I am excited to get back on that increasing my net worth train. Now I have extra motivation to beat that 9 month Streak!

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.

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)
2016 January1: $40,579
2016 July1: $53,694

shooting for 60-65k by the end of the year. 2017 goals will be 85-100k.

Just making my way over to the forum, been reading MMM off and on for the past 2 months (made my way through most of the archives at this point). I'm taking the longer road to FI - competitive ballroom and latin dance is my outside of work passion project and it's near-impossible to do well in without pretty large spending. Til the end of the year, won't be saving much except for Roth IRA and 401(k) - maxing out both including catching up for not contributing at a max-out rate the first 6 months of the year. On track to hit $100k w/o the car around 06/01/2017, assuming 0% return on investments (obviously, I'm hoping for a positive return, which would just make me hit $100k sooner). Looking forward to tracking my progress!

7/1/2016: $83,089.96 / $78,807.96 (w/ vs. w/o car - 2007 Mazda3)

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.

4/1/2016   $45,447.95
5/1/2016   $47,415.17
6/1/2016   $52,780.32

7/5/2016 $60,467.76

Mostly attributed to a reduction of debt, adding of an HSA and the stock market rebounded nicely.

Updated the house value in Mint so it was kind of a big jump, idk if it really reflects reality, but long term trends is all that actually matters so \_(ツ)_/.

Finishing my basement so I can rent it out.  So I look forward to that big drop, though it means that my accrual rate will go way up!  I'll be getting 2.2% per month return on that and my mortgage and the fix up loans will be fully covered by rents, so I'm excite.

Hi. I haven't posted in here in a long time. I was participating in the challenge in 2014-2015 and found it pretty motivating, I am not sure why I stopped posting. I just did my calculations and my NW at present is about 48K, which is less than what it was when I was last following this thread in 2015. :(

I will take the facepunch and any motivation I can to get back on track! I'm close to 50K, so let's call that the interim goal.

Three paychecks this month plus a stock market bump and it's looking like I'll hit the $100k mark in August. I'll post more thoughts/stats next month, but I'm feeling very happy.

Wow, so exciting! I can't believe you went up over $10K in one month, that's INSANE! I'm also loving the stock market jumping up right now, seeing the best numbers ever on my accounts.

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. :)

Had a stagnant month after several large (planned) expenses. $100k is getting ever closer! I can almost taste it!

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!

Well it's been a peach y'all but I'm moving on up! $103,038. Hope to see you in the next group shortly, unless the markets take a nose dive and I'm back here again.

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?

________

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

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 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.

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....
