Dec  $77,305.53
Jan '17 $81,279.42
Feb $88,887.09
Mar $91,141.45
Apr $96,365.54
May $100,283.34
June $102,285.14

Still proud to have tipped over the $100,000 mark! I thought it might drop back down under and I'd be disappointed in June, but still the slow steady climb :) 250,000 seems a long long way off, but...
I'll get there someday!!!

5/01/2017:  $198,456
5/15/2017:  $200,404 - was able to put an extra $250 in that was leftover from last month's household budget!! Plus 401k plus a little market gain gets us started!! 
5/31/2017:  $207,044 - Market wasn't particularly helpful lately, but "Cheap-Ass May Throw Down the Gauntlet" put an extra $400 or so into the kitty.
6/15/2017: $213,996 - Market up a little before the latest Trump drama, car in the shop and DW dentist visit meant no additional $ in beyond the retirement/regular addition, but CC churning just got DW and I free plane tix to a friend's destination wedding!
7/5/2017: $219,933 - car in new shop waiting for diagnosis - trying to make up for last month's spendypants-ness (is that a word?) despite summer in the city desire to go out w friends for frozen drinks.....

All the sucess I'm seeing in these threads is incredible.   You're doing it.  You're really doing it.  Don't let the dips dispair you.  It smoothes out in time.  Keep chipping away.  It's coming.

Nice!! I'm in the same place right now. I know $250K is going to come faster than the first $100K, but I think I'm going to be more impatient this time around.

The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, but the soul of the diligent is made fat.

After 3 years in the 0 to 100k thread I have finally made it to the next level! Looking forward to continuing the progress with everyone here!

Looking back at Mint data, I realized it took me four years to get from $0 to $100k, but I'm on track to close the gap between $100 and $250k in about two and a half years. Compounding feels good.

+3.88% or $6,511.23 to $174,517.92! Just shy of the $175 I was thinking I'd hit :-)

Welcome all the new ones. Impatience is a problem, the higher you get the more you want to accelerate the process, this means more risky investments. So i have to breeeath out......

Live long and prosper!

Savings have been on autopilot for a while, and although I've been tracking them every two weeks I have slacked off and not visited this post or updated the google doc since last July.

July 2016: $163,600
July 2017: $238,100

Starting out at --->
June  2017     $125,500
JULY  2017     $126,500


1,000 bucks this month, not very impressive. House value went up but I do not count that in this net worth value. Waiting on a distribution from an investment that should boost me up next month hopefully.

16th March 2017 - $156,970.56
14th April 2017 - $172,158.80 (+$15,188.24)
18th May 2017 - $187,986.35 (+$15,827.55)
18th June 2017 - $219,742.03 (+$31,755.68) Whatever small amount I had in cryptocurrencies went bonkers 😳

14th July 2017 - $200,846.03 (-$18,896) - Vanguard dropped over 5% and the crypto portfolio dropped 34%. Additionally I paid for house renovation, moving, bond, and prepaid the rent. So the drop may look dramatic but it's really where it was 6 weeks ago. Also I own way more Vanguard units now than during the last update.

Nick miller: it's still 40k a year! Apart from this forum, there arent a lot of people capable of saving that much!

Agreeing w CBen!

Nick your aside reminded me of conversation w friends after Game of Thrones last night during which I bit my lip and stayed silent:
Friend A who is now making $200k (and lives w fiancee who makes $80kish I think) says "Yeah we should probably start saving something, but I'm just having so much fun.....!" This is response to Friend B who said she can't afford to join Friend A's hourlong $80 per person group personal training sessions (Friend B is making at least $150k and is waiting for her yearly $20k bonus to finally be able to put a first time buyer 5% downpayment on a house....)
So $40k a year is HUGE! Even to those who could probably do more....

5/01/2017:  $198,456
5/15/2017:  $200,404   
5/31/2017:  $207,044
6/15/2017: $213,996
7/5/2017: $219,933
7/17/2017: $225,853  - car fixable so that's a relief and only will be pulling 33% out of savings rate this time round!

I'm in - first post!

Just crossed the 100,000 dollar mark (I just checked again to make sure)

July 2017 - 100,220 in investments (103,010. networth)
