Sep 15: 3,750

Sep 16: 23,000

From the start of my new job to a year later--almost $20,000. With a "promotion" and a pay raise this year, I'm excited to see what another year brings! Still a long way to 100K.

Good job on the progress! For a second I thought you meant you made 20k since yesterday.
LOL, don't I wish! Yesterday was payday, but not that much!

This might help my motivation :-)

I am currently at ~ 10.000 on daily benefit (?) account
plus 5.000 belonging to my sister and me together just stored in my other account.

I have around 8.000-10.000 student debt I am only allowed to pay back in 3 years.

I just opened my first depot account and I am waiting for the final documents to arrive so that I can start with indices etc.

Wow, it's been some time...
So first of all I became debt free last year (10.000)!
Meaning I started at +2.500 06/2014.

And currently my networth is...
43.882,85 @09/2016

I had not looked at this before. Amazing. This forum really motivates :)

Due to making less than 50k I'll probably be way behind some of y'all but...

2 years into the 'real' workforce, networth 40k:

Work pension contribution: 10k
Savings account (earmarked for house downpayment, goal is 50k): 30k

If anyone has ideas about places to put house downpayment money that I plan to use within 1-2 years, I'm all ears!  Earned a whopping 25 cents last month in interest in savings and it made me so sad...

Ally bank has 1% for a savings account. $25 > $0.25.

Moving this month for a better paying job, so odds are any growth will be pretty stagnant.  Subsequent months should be great though.

October 2015: $4,100

October 2016: $25,350

This time last year I had just restarted my slow upward climb after a summer without a paycheck. This year I've had a steady summer income and one full month on the new and improved paycheck.

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

*snip*

Whoops, its been a while. Here's my end of month numbers for May and June. Getting closer!

05/2016: $87,545
06/2016: $89,146

07/2016: $92,533

This number is actually higher because I have several outstanding reimbursements for work travel. Getting close!

09/2016: $96,145

Based by this, I'd say we're on track for $100k in late November. I have around $2,500 in reimbursements from my conference this weekend that are outstanding. Very exciting!

It was negative all of my life until two or three years ago (at one point negative $200k or so).  I never tracked it because it was too depressing.

$27,512.11 November 2014
$32,550.93 January 2015
$37,692.25 April  2015
$41,623.39 June 2015
$35,929.89 July 2015 (Ouch!!!)
$45,275.83 October 2015

$54,907 November 30, 2105

17.5% increase?  Somebody check my math.

Groan.

October 2016, almost a year later, a $763 increase to $55,671.

Damn.  I stopped tracking it until this month, because I knew things weren't going well, so I stuck my head in the sand.

Positive is ALWAYS better than negative when it comes to NW calculations, so at least you didn't fall too far!  New day, hop back on the wagon.  ;)

Yea but you already have historical data showing that you know how to get 20k+ in a year without issue.  No big deal, just get to pick back up where you left off with a little bonus!

New to this thread! Found MMM in Jan 2016 and began tracking on MINT shortly thereafter.

Jan 2016: 19,799
Feb 2016: 18,990
Mar 2016: 21,803
April 2016: 34,510
May 2016: 37,172
June 2016: 40,277
July 2016: 47,027
August 2016: 47,772
September 2016: 51,071
October 2016: 53,397

If I can increase NW by 35k a year, I'll hit 100k by early 2018!

7/30/2016: $19,296
8/30/2016: $21,334
10/23/2016: $18,326

Unfortunately, there's a very large dip 2 months later because I have decided to start my own business and gave the business an $800 loan (not tracked in my personal NW for now) and have been eating into savings a bit with just my personal expenses - which are averaging $1250 month with my health insurance. But I have a part-time W2 job that will keep that flat next couple months I hope while the business gains income.

I'll be treading water for a few months - probably not losing much, but not gaining much either - as I get going.
I made this:  A Purrsonal finance workbook - an illustrated cat-filled money workbook (with plenty of mustachianism)

My weekly personal finance podcast aimed at millennials and freelancers but applicable to all

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

Holy moly we made it! Apparently I had more outstanding reimbursements than I thought. So I have to leave this thread? We have some large expenditures planned for the next 6 months, so I feel like I'll just bounce back here again soon.

Reasonable contribution offset by declining market lead to smaller than expected increase.  My year end target is now $47k, but who knows with the market and the election.

Haven't done any thorough calculations, but back of the envelope says it should be a little over a year.

So close its a little disappointing, unfortunately markets did not cooperate (first world problems).

Next pay day is Friday, Nov 4 which should push us over 100k, hopefully for good.

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

*snip*

Whoops, its been a while. Here's my end of month numbers for May and June. Getting closer!

05/2016: $87,545
06/2016: $89,146

07/2016: $92,533

This number is actually higher because I have several outstanding reimbursements for work travel. Getting close!

09/2016: $96,145

Based by this, I'd say we're on track for $100k in late November. I have around $2,500 in reimbursements from my conference this weekend that are outstanding. Very exciting!

10/31/2016: $101,606.36

Holy moly we made it! Apparently I had more outstanding reimbursements than I thought. So I have to leave this thread? We have some large expenditures planned for the next 6 months, so I feel like I'll just bounce back here again soon.

Congratulations!!

LOL!  Starting with an $18,000 a year job three years ago and almost no net worth - I think you kicked all of our asses!  Congratulations.  This is a very impressive success.

There is a thread for, I think, race from $100k to $250k.

Well, looks like I have one thing I can thank Donald Trump for... My NW finally crossed the 75k mark! It's been teetering between 72 and 74 for a couple of months like a yoyo, but I am FINALLY there. In fact, it crossed 76 yesterday! Not that I expect it to stay there as all this hype settles down, but it was sure nice to see that. Hopefully the over correction won't be too severe.

Jan - $45,622   
Feb - $49,164   
March - $62,581   
April - $66,697   
May - $71,586
June - $76,413
July - $83,499
August - $88924
September - $95816


OCTOBER - $99,648

So close its a little disappointing, unfortunately markets did not cooperate (first world problems).

Next pay day is Friday, Nov 4 which should push us over 100k, hopefully for good.
  Guessing you are there now?

Been busy and didn't get a chance to update on the first.

According to Personal Capital...

$56,780 - Nov 2016

Short notice travel, unexpected car repair, and moving for work with a few weeks of no income getting settled has taken a toll.  Good news is I've got a new job and moving up from 45k income to 76k, so I should start seeing solid improvement from here.

You all are doing really well. This is either the easiest or the hardest range to save for. I got lucky once with my investment but it could have gone the other way. Keep up the good work!

Hi all,

I'm new to the group, although I discovered MMM in September 2015. Since then I've been busy getting my finances in order and starting to build my 'stache, which as of today is $21,326.78. Hope to increase this by $2,000 at the end of the month.

I started this year at $24k net worth and I am so thrilled to say I just hit $50k! (If you read my old posts I was including my car value in my net worth calculation. I stopped including it which set me back).

It has taken me 7 years to get to this point.

November 2009: Graduated from grad school with $52k student loans and 5k in the bank, but thankfully also already employed with benefits!
November 2010: -$41,165 (Did a bunch of dumb things like bought a brand new car which was totaled 2 years later)
November 2011: -$26,332
November 2012: -$7,560 (bought another new car which was also totaled 2 years later)
November 2013: $8,748
November 2014: $21,464 (bought a used Rav4 at an unreasonable price with a useless warranty--I clearly make really unintelligent decisions when purchasing a car. I really wish I had found MMM before buying my 1st, and 2nd, and 3rd car. This will not happen again!)
November 2015: $27,355 (Found MMM. Paid off car and started student loan destruction)
November 2016: $50,207 (Hit 50k in retirement savings and net worth. Since I started with ~50k in the red it feels really good to be 50k in the right direction)

Plans for 2017: Getting married in the fall. Money for the wedding already saved. Paying on student loans with a vengeance ($1,133 a month).

Keep up the good work! You are basically up $100k had you started with 0 as opposed to deep in the red ;)

March 2015$7,340.61

October 2015$29,095.56
November 2015$29,908.32
December 2015$32,139.84
January 2016$33,406.91
February 2016$44,953.46 (vested a bunch of employer benefits)
March 2016$50,388.38 (No idea... this looks off to me)
April 2016$57,981.30 (got another raise around this time)
May 2016$58,673.90
June 2016$57,834.51
July 2016$63,066.48
August 2016$66,336.33 (got awarded a LOT of RSUs, vest quarterly so no impact in August)

October 2016$61,734.57
November 2016$78,814.44 (get a raise, company gets bought, RSUs vest)

Here goes.

Oct 31st, 2016 - $17,457.17

Haven't done any thorough calculations, but back of the envelope says it should be a little over a year.

November 30th, 2016 - $35,747

Always nice to find out that your wife has about 12k in GE stock that was given to her from her grandparents. Looking to liquidate and put it into a Roth before the end of the year for diversification.

I'm getting paid tomorrow, so the number should jump significantly by next month.  And this is more of a personal challenge for me, but if my calculations are correct, with solid budgeting I should be at 100k by next October with my new job.
