Only saved ~$6,500 this month so the market made up the difference.  Received our flood ins. advance and are still waiting on the contractor for our most recent bill so our NW will drop pretty soon.

Jan. 1, 2017 - 103,000
Feb. 1, 2017 - 106,500
Mar. 1 2017  - 102,500
Apr. 1  2017 -  110,000
May 1  2017 -  112,500
June 1 2017 -  113,500
July  1 2017 -  120,500
Aug. 1 2017 -  131,000
Sept. 1 2017-  131,000
Oct.  1  2017-  131,500
 
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!

Jun 2017 - $129,729.60
Oct 2017 - $144,100.18

Yikes, the last time I reported in was June! Things are still moving in an upward direction and I just scheduled a transfer to my Roth IRA maxing it out for the year. This is my first year maxing both 401k and an IRA. Yay! I also think I can get myself to $150k before the end of the year which will be just a bit more than a year to get from $100k to $150k.

Oh, and my husband said FU and quit his job in August. He's now living the dream as a self employed blacksmith.

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.
17th August 2017 - $228,106.09 (+$27,260.06) - Back on track, although I still have some big expenses coming up in the near future. Hoping to graduate by the end of October 2017.
26th September 2017 - $228,382.36 (+$276.27) - cryptos went down by the same amount as what I saved. I'm done with the big house related expenses now.
13th October 2017 - $256,067.92 (+$27,685.56) - Looks like I'm done here. Markets went back up + I'm back to big savings. My portfolio is pretty volatile due to the crypto exposure so it may come back under 250k at any point of time. Rebalancing would trigger massive tax so I'm leaving it for now. See you in the next thread. Good luck all!

I don't think I checked in yet for last month. Congratulations to those who graduated!! McStache, Turketron, Rhoon - see you all in the next thread!

September was another great month to me :-) Up 4% (7,421.13) to $193,221.02. On track to hit 200k this year unless stocks go on sale, and hope to graduate by my birthday next year (late August)!

Happy October : )

9/15/17   $101,268
10/14/17   $106,265

Positives:
I got a roommate last month, she is really nice and paid me early on Paypal, didn't even have to ask.
Not included in this months, but I got a recognition award yesterday that comes with a cash bonus. Its the first time I've gotten one and It felt good to be singled out.

Negatives:
Apparently my eyes decided to get worse for the first time since 2013, just replaced the lenses since my frames work just fine.

I'm assuming you are also including it net of any outstanding loan balance?

Yup, i did what MMM does right in his net worth post
https://www.mrmoneymustache.com/2015/01/26/calculating-net-worth/

How much the house is worth - what's left over on the mortgage = how much we own of it, which is around a 100K.
And I tried to stay conservative and use how much we paid, instead of how much it's listed for on Zillow or how much I've seen houses on our street sell for, because that would be quite a bit more, but who knows how stable that is when/if we actually sell it, so I don't want to count on that.

First, congratulations to those have graduated the group!

AS for us....

4/5/17 - 101,800 (joined the 'group')
10/19/17 - 156,200

Thanks to the nice market gains and continued contributions, our NW (home equity not included) has steadily risen. Could we have done better? Sure. But we like our current balance of spending/saving.

Jumping into this thread to track cash/investments only, NW has too much tied up in real estate in a crazy market.

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

... 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!

Well, I was going to wait for the end of the year for this. But I guess there's no point in waiting.

Assets

Primary Residence Value - $150,000
Commercial Property Value - $55,000
Latest Property Acquisition - $15,000
Retirement Assets - $17,350
Cash Assets - $46,800
Vehicular Assets - $15,200 (decided to add this for more accurate true net worth tracking)

Liabilities

Primary Mortgage - $6,400
Secondary Mortgage - $40,000
... and that's it.

Updated Net Worth - $252,950

Which would bump me up over the quarter million mark... but I'm not sure. As you can see, not much has really changed beyond including the value of my fleet. I paid down the mortgages, added a little to retirement... I'm not sure. I'm not really feeling like I've truly "made it" yet.

I think I'll be back at the end of the year, once we get all those end of year pension statements and such. Maybe then it will feel more real to me.

Count me in!!! Just graduated from the race to 100k. Started that race halfway through, but took me approx 10 months, with an average monthly increase of $5500. My growth was mainly driven by large amounts of overtime at work, so that pace may not be completely sustainable. However, I'll try to maintain that pace, and hopefully market gains will help along the way :). Goal for this race is Jan 2020

5/31/17 $83,416.85 an increase of $1,293.71
6/30/17 $88,646.63 an increase of $5,229.78

10/31/17 $105,330.40 an increase of $3,898.80

A surprisingly great month for me.  I had a small unexpected windfall of $700 due to tax over payment which just went directly into my cash reserves.  Market increase did the rest.  Next month I start house hacking and will pick up an additional $350 by getting a roommate.

Posted to Ottawa, made tracking impossible due to having to pay things that would all be repaid in October)
Nov/17 174,000  (And still awaiting 5k from the military!)

Moved to Ottawa in August, and no longer deployed overseas, so the money has stopped fire hosing it's way into my accounts.
Best news of it all though, with the move I was able to deploy 45k from the previous mortgage into the stock market.

30-Sep-17: $192,217
31-Oct-17: $199,128

Investment accounts increased by $77,489 in the year since I have been tracking! I don't imagine the market gains I've enjoyed this past year will continue on this pace, but we have steadily increased our contributions and hope to continue to over the next year as well as we find opportunities.

Joining this thread bc as I shift from one big goal (killing student loans over 5% interest) to balancing multiple goals (saving for downpayment, increasing tax deferred contributions, paying off the last of the student loans) I think it will be good to keep an eye on the big net worth picture.

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)
October 2017: $185,318 (total NW $350,236) some adjustment in the condo estimate affected total NW this month

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.

Poor month that I intended to be a good one. Lots of celebrations I didn't expect to cost as much as they did (weddings, dinners, trips). Next month should be good except for Christmas presents, which for my family aren't too expensive.

$211,023.90, up $5,618.12.

Higher than usual expenses...birthday present for best friend, new smartphone to replace my Nexus 4, and prepaid for a year's worth of mobile service.

Received my annual raise...the usual 3% we all get.

I logged into my 403(b) account and happened to notice that they have added a new 457(b) option on top of it. Will start payroll deductions on the next check ;). Should still be able to shovel enough in there to get me out of the IRA phaseout range. Sweet.
