Got married in late August, hence the huge jump! My wife has done some solid saving of her own over the past year or two. I'm excited to have double the incomes, and hopefully not double the life expenses. Barring anything wacky, we should be 'graduating' to the next thread by early 2018.

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.
September 2017: $180,271 (total NW $349,265)

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.

Killed it this last month thanks in part to an $8,000 inheritance.  Looking at what my BIL and SIL are doing with their share of the inheritance reaffirmed how important it is to have your crap together financially.

3 paycheck month! We had a lot of extra expenses at the beginning of the month in preparation for the hurricane and our Prime membership renewal came due. We also had about $600 in donations go out this month in accordance with our plan to increase our giving as our incomes have increased. On the savings side, car insurance has gone down so we had some savings there and both of us have some outstanding reimbursements that should pop around $200 back into our accounts.
I ran some numbers and, conservatively, we should be graduating from the board in October 2019.

August 2017   $174,107.52
Oct 2017        $184,884.82

Switching to entering numbers on the first of the month, based on my new tracking spreadsheet. Wife's previous retirement account rolled over into her Vanguard IRA this month. Otherwise, we had a couple large expenses: buying furniture for our house and a plumbing repair.

Net increase from August 2016 to July 2017 was $65,947. I would need to increase by $75,893 in the next year to hit $250k by July 2018.

5/31/17 - $100,187
6/31/17 - $102,500
7/31/17 - $104,809

I'm hoping to get to at least $120K by the end of the year on NW and cross $100K just in investments.

9/29/17 - $109,800
This will hopefully turn over $110K by Monday after my last 401K deposit hits. I'm up to $95K in invested value. Still finding it difficult to come up with extra liquid to put away though. Seems like every month there's been new expenses that crop up I have to take care of like a major car repair, plane ticket for a conference coming up, healthcare, etc.

Doesn't look that good looking at the NW number below, but was actually a good month! Got to 100k invested! Made a few changes this month:
  • Removed both vehicles from net worth calc. Entire value of $3500 Ford Ranger and set our other vehicle = to its outstanding loan balance (-$4500 from what it was). I will depreciate it monthly so that it's worth is approximately equal to what we owe. This makes sense to me since we plan to keep the car until it dies and I would rather just have it out of the NW calc once it is payed off.
  • Primary residence jumped another 12k on Zillow, so removed the link to Zillow and set its worth to a little less than is was valued last month. Will freeze it here for the foreseeable future

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)

August 2017: CHF 247000

September 2017: CHF 256000

Not the best of months, a stock pick has lost a significant amount this month (Teaches me to stock pick). Also I have my wedding coming up so there is a fair few expenses on the horizon. Just have to keep plugging away 250k here we come :p

06-17: $127,000

Big jump this month, superannuation has gone up plus some nice gains in the market. Can only hope that this month is just as good, only time will tell.

I busted through that 200k mark!!!  I finally received my tax returns from 2016 which was around 5k, which made a huge difference!  I feel like I have a limited time left in here before I'm on to the next challenge.  Hopefully my savings can keep it up!

Going up $500 is a great thing considering that I spent $9000 on appliances for my home.  For those of you noticing a redundancy in my comments about housing spends, it is even more pronounced of a tedious presence on my end IRL.  Almost two months over due date, but at least largely on budget.   The fact I'm treading water at all is outstanding to me-but I'm ready to start re-investing sooner than later!

This is a pretty poor effort from myself. It's not poor from saving less but I typically get a decent bonus of say $10k but this year it was $2k. The markets also weren't great. I also had expectations of breaking $200k. Still next update should push us over $200k and we are still saving and life is good. Well it's a nightmare with 2 teenagers who have been struggling but apart from that it's good.

I've been tracking investments for a while, but never joined this thread. I'll add some historical here too:

31-Oct-16: $121,639
30-Nov-16: $128,335
31-Dec-16: $134,179

31-Jan-17: $140,623
28-Feb-17: $148,087
31-Mar-17: $153,745
30-Jun-17: $171,538
31-Jul-17: $179,124
31-Aug-17: $180,682
30-Sep-17: $192,217

It's certainly been a good year for returns, but we also really ramped up our savings starting in Oct. 2016 (conveniently also when I started tracking) and have been lucky enough to earn raises this year for both DH and I that allowed us to up our contributions even more. Hope to not be here too long! Assuming the market doesn't crash, we should easily hit $200,000 by the end of 2017 and $250,000 by this time mid-2018!
