I'm about 3 years away from this thread but like to look at it for comparisons. Why don't more people post their income/age for becnhmarking purposes on this thread? I know it is personal, but so is NW. It would be really helpful to see if the 6k jump every month is based on savings/market jumping or just a pay raise.

I added context to my tally on the Race to 10k but would appreciate if more people were willing to share more information for context for newbies looking into the future. IE. I probably wont race through this thread in 1 year like the guy making $250k a year, but I would be comparable to the woman making 80k with a mortgage.
Hi Marty, I think I did post that on my thread. It can help a ton to see where people are coming from on these threads.
I'm 29, husband is 30, we've got no kids and we rent in a LCOL area (I think? I'm not quite sure how one determines LCOL vs. MCOL). My husband just recently starting working after years of us being a single income family while he was in school. My salary progression is in my posts and I also do a little summary of the past month. I hope this helps!

Thanks! It is quite impressive how you moved up especially the early years on 1 lower income. Really making progress now.

I use "owner page" estimates from Redfin and Zillow and then take a look at the comps every month or so - a site that just aggregates data is bound to get one or two wrong now and then.  So I follow what the market is doing in my area for similar houses as mine (about once a month), check that against the Redfin and Zillow estimates (note - Zestimates are terrible, but their owner page is fairly accurate), and then use a $/sq ft I think my house would sell for.

I started breaking out Total NW and Invested Assets, or stash.  I figure home equity isn't as relevant to FIRE until we sell, but even then it'll just go to the next house purchase.

This all makes good sense. I've got Total NW (just over $100k) and Invested Assets ($120k) broken out as well. Total NW growing by ~$8700/month, Invested Assets growing by about $4k/month + or - market activity.

Oh, for martyconlonontherun, my wife and I are basically 40, two kids 8 & 12. MCOL? Combined gross is like $170k. Large mortgage payment ($2600/month for 15-year at 2.75%) and just over $1k/month in student loan payments.

Looks like you are ramping it up $8-9k  consistently out of $15K/mth gross with 2 kids and high SLoans is pretty solid!

Just topped $100k this morning, thanks to 457 plan contribution! Basically $120k invested, $18k in cash/checking, $70k student loans, $32k home equity.

That's based on a very conservative estimate of home equity. A more realistic estimate would have put me over $100k a couple months ago, but since I have no plans to sell for at least 10 years, I want to underemphasize the role home equity plays in my thinking.

How do the rest of you factor home equity into NW calculations?

I exclude it, but it is not very satisfying when you renovate or something and your NW stagnates.  I am considering maintaining a second column including the RE equity, maybe based off the cost basis or something.

Column 1: investments (retirement + otherwise):
Column 2: total net worth (including investments, savings account and the paid off part of the house)

7/17/17    $182,905   $301,487
8/17/17    $184,943   $301,381

I feel completely discouraged since we went down in our net worth this month.:(
But... 1) the market went down; 2) we had 2 unplanned for medical emergencies (which never happens, as we are all fairly healthy), 3) international work travel which will be compensated next month 4) a big event which was lovely and happens maybe once every 10 or 20 years, 5) a couple of out of town visitors who we wanted to have a nice time with and not worry about money while they were here, and 6) 2 major house maintenance purchases. So maybe it's actually completely reasonable that our net worth went down by $100 in one month.

And maybe I am too neurotic to keep track of this on a monthly basis.

8/01/2017:  $228,504 (had to buy a (old used) car so mostly market gains this time around - should be back on track next month!)
8/24/2017:  $228, 854 (disappointing month for saving - car costs higher than expected, long awaited vacation from work during which I let my spendypants hair down a little, DW's friends' destination wedding, and stock market drop = you can't even tell I put 4K away - yeesh....   well back to the grind so......

Nice to share in the misery this month though - seems quite a few of us didn't make as much progress as hoped - I'm guessing this is mostly b/c we've gotten used to regular and significant market gains over the past couple months.....

Oh well - long game, right??

Looking good to see everybody making progress. Totally understand about this month being a small gain and/or small loss for people. Didn't make much of a move compared to last month.
However I am excited to see that I hit 100K in May and I'm already at 110K today.  I've heard that after you make your first 100K it will go faster. Can't wait to see how long till the next milestone of 250K. My estimate is somewhere in July of 2021...but that is a linearity estimate. So I imagine (hope) it's sometime before then.


07/31/16   $69,790.01
08/31/16   $70,534.23
09/30/16   $73,742.76
10/31/16   $74,282.52
11/30/16   $77,284.23
12/31/16   $80,583.50
01/31/17   $84,085.00
02/28/17   $88,359.35
03/31/17   $93,104.53
04/30/17   $97,055.33
05/31/17   $100,655.06
06/30/17   $103,736.43
07/31/17   $108,879.02
08/31/17   $110,209.71

(as always, house is not included in net worth since I don't consider it an asset until I sell it)

It's been a while since I posted here, but here's the update.

2014-1-1: $60k
2015-1-1: $92k
2016-1-1: $125k
2016-12-2: $187,320
2017-1-1:   $202,158
2017-2-23: $209k
2017-8-31: $230k

We're getting there. With all the medical expenses we've had, and travel too, I was surprised to see much of an increase since earlier in the year. I'll take it, but be working harder to get these numbers up for the rest of the year.

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)
August 2017: $176,250 (total NW $347,833) Glad to see a small increase despite an unexpected $3,000 emergency special assessment this month for my rental condo.

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.

Welcome to all the new fellows on the march to 250k!
same investing strategy
everything according to the plan: rolling over only short running structured products (bonus certificates (1 to 2 months)) on the european indexes DAX\EuroStoxx50, no stocks.
No liabilities + a paid Appartment (Value approx. 300,000€)

The increases are mostly investment gains, my monthly savings rate is around 500€.
Invested Assets+ Cash Account:
1/1/2016 Jan:    64,400€

1/1/2017 Jan:  104,000 €
2/1/2017 Feb:  105,000 €
3/1/2017 Mar:  107,000 €
4/1/2017 Apr:  110,000 €   
5/1/2017 May:  112,900 € 
6/1/2017 June:  117,868 € 
7/1/2017 July:  122,085 €
8/1/2017 Aug:  129,365 €
9/1/2017 Sept:  134,209 €

Higher market  volatility, higher risk, higher gains. The markets are still too smooth, i do not care if they are going up or down, just need volatility to get cheap derivates.

Planned Graduation Date 250k: June 2020

Happy Investing  ;)

Disappointing month based on ratio again. I really have to pick it up. I spent plenty on presents and treats for guests and my girlfriend. No reason September and October can't be very frugal months though.

8/1/2017     $105,261
9/4/2017    $105,325 It has been a crazy month full of many large ups and downs. During this month we: bought a van we intend to move into next summer, had about $1200 in car repairs (managed to save another $800 or so in labor doing what i could myself),  and recieved a large reimbursement from some previous expenses. In summation, no movement forward this month, but I am happy to have broke even everything considered. I will have to look at the positives in the money I saved doing the repairs myself and what we will save in the future without rent.

5/1/17 - $115,775  //  $92,843
6/1/17 - $132,067  //  $96,095
7/1/17 - $134,078  //  $96,404
8/1/17 - $142,711  //  $100,068

9/1/17 - $144,009 // $102,800

Home value took a dip this past month based on comps of recent sales.  Broke out invested assets, which shows a ~$2,700 increase (mostly contributions) despite a pretty flat month of returns.

Jan 2017           $42,000
February 2017   $51,000
March 2017   $57,500
April 2017           $62,500
May 2017           $71,546
June 2017           $80,500
July 2017           $88,597

Aug 1st - 211,263
Sept 1st - 215,880

Def did some more spending this month with a couple small vacations, plus the market wasn't the greatest.  The rebound yesterday actually brought it up at least another 1k, and the raise/promotion finally happening at the beginning of the month raised me up to 90k a year, which also helped.

July  1 2017 -  120,500
Aug. 1 2017 -  131,000
Sept. 1 2017-  131,000

Last Month I said I didn't have to put money into the house, but not the case this go around.  I doubled my budgeted spend, and still held steady on NW. 

Probably going to drop a good amount this month or the next since we will have to pre-pay taxes into the new escrow, which is an unexpected additional cash to close. 

I think I'll end the year about where I started, but also hope that I'll have half funded a 529 that won't be reflected here, so I'm just kind of chalking this year up to getting my house in order for the next few rest of my life.

Woo hoo!  Looks like we've graduated!! 

Our investments continue to power our NW growth.  I was surprised how well we did, it sure didn't feel like such a big jump until I ran the numbers. 

Doing a happy dance!

Congratulations!!!!

August 31 NW: $200,570.84.

Congrats on changing that first digit :-)

You are right, it's really really cool when unusual expenses don't even register in the progression!

This (last) month, I bought plane tickets to visit family in Japan along with my parents during cherry blossom season :-)

And yet, NW went up 5,659.83 to 185,799.85!! It did help that it was my birthday and some family members decided to be generous.
Turned 33, income 85k, single, renter.



Welcome to all the newcomers! It seems like a lot of people broke into the 6 digit club :-)

*Increased number by $250 to reflect a direct deposit that did not show when I originally took down numbers and another almost 2,200 for the TSP that I forgot about... I suppose it is a good thing when you have enough money you don't notice 10% of your paycheck disappearing :)

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

8/31/2017: $127,150.06   (+$8,327.43)
I actually had to double-check my numbers twice because it seemed so high. Still getting used to that dual income life. Next month will be even more because September is a 3 paycheck month. We continue to struggle a bit with lifestyle inflation as our grocery bill attests and we've loosened up a bit on brownbagging it to work. Usually because my husband will leave his lunch at home because he hasn't really woken up yet as he's leaving and then he ends up at mcdonalds or wendys. Oh well. I'll keep trying to get him to keep food up in his office.

You could use software like GnuCash. Easy to generate graphs and charts from your historic records and you don't have to enter any passwords. All the data stays locally on your computer. It does require manual entry, but no more than using your own spreadsheets.

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.

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)

August 2017: CHF 247000

I'll race ya!

My networth for the end of December 2016 is: $103,491, just over the $100k threshold.

I'm not exactly sure when we'll hit $250k since I've just started keeping track of net worth earlier this month.
Just reached $176k at the beginning of September 2017, hard to believe!
