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.

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.

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.

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!

Retirement only, does not include real estate or emergency savings:

January 2015: $98,619

January 2016: $101,235
December 2016: $140,779 (total NW $269,089)

January 2017: $151,307 (total NW $276,052)
February 2017: $156,620 (total NW $285,663)
March 2017: $161,585 (total NW $302,055)
April 2017: $166,111 (total NW $306,801)
May 2017: $169,686 (total NW $327,523)
June 2017: $171,784 (total NW $335,026)
July 2017: $175,590 (total NW $342,138)

I know the total NW is over $250k but I'm focused on retirement only for this challenge. A good chunk of the NW is real estate equity.

May 2017: CHF 231'000
June 2017: CHF 235'000

As I paid CHF 2'700 in taxes and the mortgage (CHF 1'380) for the last three months was due I'm satisfied.
July 2017: CHF 243'000 (that was a good month)

Background on net worth: No kids, 1 dog (he's a very good boy), we rent.
08/2013: $9,216- had been making 18k, got a job making 27k
02/2014: $14,413- new job in December making 38k
08/2014: $17,890
02/2015: $34,041
08/2015: $58,584 - new job in May making 55k
02/2016: $77,264
09/2016: $96,145

10/31/2016: $101,606      (+$2,334)
11/17/2016: $103,940      (+$2,334)
12/30/2916: $109,785.19 (+$5,845.19)
1/31/2017: $112,318.74   (+$2,533.55)
2/28/2017: $119,499.39   (+$7,180.65)
3/31/2017: $124,640.83   (+$5,141.44)
4/30/2017: $109,329.00   (-$15,311.83)
5/31/2017: $108,986.53   (-$342.47)
6/30/2017: $114,809.37   (+$5,822.84) Husband started working making 75k
7/31/2017: $118,822.63   (+$4,013.26)
Almost back to where we were in February before the car purchase and paying off my mom's car note. Crazy to think that we're up $15k in just 3 months. Between the 2 of us we have some outstanding work reimbursements that will add around another $2k, but it looks like it won't hit til August.
We are still debating house buying so a big chunk of this is cash sitting in the bank, but I did get my husband on board to max out his retirement account next year. I hate that you can't get your retirement contributions set up until you are a month in. He got a couple paychecks with the higher amount and now it feels like he's not making so much with the retirement contributions taken out. Nevermind that one of his checks are still almost what our take-home pay for the month had been before.
We've got to figure out a better system to combine our finances. That's a battle for next month I'm thinking.

6/30/2017 $117232 ~ +1.29%

7/31/2017 $119,087 ~ +1.58%

Does not include car loan (3200) to be payed off in September.

Also have approximately 2k that work owes me for travel expenses.  That should all be dropped directly into savings once I get that check.

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.

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!

Yes, this is my gambling addiction!

I am however grateful to be almost to $105K today. Despite the nagging impatience, there is something reassuring about at least being over this first 6-figure hump. My monkey brain tells me I'll feel more at peace when I hit $200K, but I know I'll probably feel just as impatient as I do now.

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

We have now closed on our house so things are stable enough to join.  Tracking everything except real estate in this challenge

6/30:  198.7k
6/30:  198.7k
7/31:  207.5k

If we can continue this pace, we would hit 250k at the end of the year.

Feb 1st - 167,752
March 1st - 177,448
April 1st - 183,917
May 1st - 189,025
June 1st - 195,189
July 1st - 202,048
August 1st - 211,263

Pretty decent month.  Also just got a promotion on Friday and also confirmed a bit of contract side hustle work today that will be starting next week, so looking good!  Going on vacation for the rest of the week, so that'll negatively contribute this month, but shouldn't be bad.

I haven't clocked in here yet, even though it was suggested. As such:

Net Worth As Of Year Open

Assets

Property Value - $150,000
RPP - $2700
TFSA - $4500
RRSP - $850
Savings Accounts - $0
Chequing Accounts - $20

Liabilities

Mortgage - $20,000
Credit Cards - $7000
CIBC Loan - $4500
Desjardins Loan - $10,000
Income Tax Owing - $1570

Net Worth - $115,000

Net Worth At Year End

Assets

Primary Residence Value - $150,000
Secondary Property Value - $55,000
RPP - $3500
TFSA - $150
RRSP - $900
Pension - $2000
Savings Accounts - $4750
Chequing Accounts - $10,550

Liabilities

Primary Mortgage - $17,900
Secondary Mortgage - $47,950
... and that's it.

Updated Net Worth - $161,000


A year and a half later here comes an update. I'm also going to really streamline this.

Assets

Primary Residence Value - $150,000 (I'm leaving this alone)
Commercial Property Value - $55,000 (Leaving this alone as well)
Latest Property Acquisition - $15,000 (I will be leaving this value locked in here too)
Retirement Assets - $14,125
Cash Assets - $49,250

Liabilities

Primary Mortgage - $7,450
Secondary Mortgage - $41,250
... and that's it.

Updated Net Worth - $234,675

For a total upward movement of $73,675. If all goes well we may graduate from this race before the year is out!

First Post!  Been lurking on here for almost 2 years and thought I'd jump in on this.

It took me around 11 years to get to $100,000.

Lately we've been socking away approx. $3,238 a month which represents a savings rate of a little over 53%.

We just had our second child, so my wife is currently on maternity leave until June of 2018 and will likely only go back to work part time, which will kill our savings rate.  I was hoping to have about $200,000 invested by then, but it's looking less and less likely after the bad run the last couple of months (oil prices down and CND dollar rising mean bad returns for us Canadians).

Here are my investments since I've been keeping close track:

Jan 1/16 - $105,809.20
Feb 1/16 - $102,834.20
Mar 1/16 - $105,602.70
Apr 1/16 - $108,749.60
May 1/16 - $111,301.30
Jun 1/16 - $115,863.40
Jul 1/16 - $117,155.44
Aug 1/16 - $121,029.58
Sept 1/16 - $115,764.20
Oct 1/16 - $118,878.00
Nov 1/16 - $121,182.02
Dec 1/16 - $122,740.03
Jan 1/17 - $126,041.95
Feb 1/17 - $126,222.84
Mar 1/17 - $131,614.25
Apr 1/17 - $138,777.41
May 1/17 - $143,059.30
Jun 1/17 (Goal of $150,000) - $145,507.49
Jul 1/17 - $144,570.34
Aug 1/17 - $144,686.48
