First time posting in this thread! I'm just going to be including my invested income & cash, and ignoring my retirement fund (superannuation) & student debt (hecs) because I pretty much ignore them in all my calculations.

Jun 2015:  $50k
Oct 2016:  $100k
Nov 2017:  $150k

I remember being super excited about my first $50k. When I hit $100k it was pretty exciting, but $150k just kinda passed me by a few weeks ago without even really thinking about it.

4/28/17 $82,123.14 start of competition
5/31/17 $83,416.85 an increase of $1,293.71
6/30/17 $88,646.63 an increase of $5,229.78
7/31/17 $97,939.57 an increase of $9,292.94
8/31/17 $98,975.02 an increase of $1,034.45
9/29/17 $101,431.60 an increase of $2,456.58
10/31/17 $106,262.40 an increase of $4,830.80
11/30/17 $103,638.95 a decrease of -$2,623.45

An expected decrease because I bought an engagement ring.  A bitter sweet moment lol I know I'll get a substantial bump-up in net worth sometime next year when I do get married so I consider it a very worthy investment.

First off congrats to everybody who's trucking along and to those who are graduating.

I can't believe how much growth I've gotten although I know it's mostly due to such a high market right now. Still going from 100K to 125K in 6 months is amazing to me. Especially considering how long it took to get the first 100K. I'm definitely liking how it's finally past the tipping point and will just stream roll on from here.

As always I don't include the house as it's not an asset until we sell it. This is just retirement investments and savings

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   $112,049.65
09/30/17   $116,830.81
10/31/17   $120,730.29
11/30/17   $125,384.73

03/2017 - $130,500
04/2017 - $133,780 (+3280 - Saved $2500, Market Gains $780, Savings Ratio 48.2%)
05/2017 - $138,157 (+4377 - Saved $2835, Market Gains $1542, Savings Ratio 54.4%)
06/2017 - $144,144 (+5987 - Saved $3265, Market Gains $2731, Savings Ratio 61.9%)
07/2017 - $147,452 (+3308 - Saved $2039, Market Gains $1269, Savings Ratio 39.1%)
08/2017 - $152,993 (+5541 - Saved $2961, Market Gains $2580, Savings Ratio 54.3%)
09/2017 - $155,863 (+2870 - Saved $2838, Market Gains $32, Savings Ratio 52%)
10/2017 - $162,673 (+6810 - Saved $2999, Market Gains $3811, Savings Ratio 54.9%)
11/2017 - $168,673 (+6000 - Saved $2775, Market Gains $3225, Savings Ratio 50.8%)
12/2017 - $175,755 (+7082 - Saved $2730, Market Gains $4352, Savings Ratio 50%)

Took a big hit from a car repair. If my car needs another hefty repair in the next 2 years, I'll probably junk it and buy a used car that I plan to last for ~3 years until I can get a used self driving car. I'm not beating myself up for the low savings rate - without that car bill, I was at 71%. Market Gains from Cryptocurrencies were huge this month. The last two days dropped 20% and I'm still up 40% this month.

6/1/2017 - $115,738
6/30/2017 $117,232 ~ +1.29%
7/31/2017 $119,087 ~ +1.58%
8/31/2017 $123,218 ~ +3.47%
9/30/2017 $123,886 ~ +0.54%
10/31/2017 $125,468.75 +1.28%

11/31/2017 $124,036.64 ~-1.14%

Numbers based on Mint and does not include:
 A small crypto currency investment < $1000
approximately $4200 in Real estate tax Liens
 
While I could include the approximate $ amount of liens I have, I won't as I need to develop the query to do so. Won't take terribly long but I have other things of greater important I need to do at the moment.  Maybe someday. 
That being said, market gains for the win, as I only seemed to drop 1.4k despite my new un-tracked investment.

Not completely terrible. Woodstove installation ($2425!), boiler maintenance, also replaced 2 thermostats and bought a wet/dry vac and a pressure washer. Dental visit.
And $4k debt reduction which isn't reflected in asset totals.

Some temporary group/family travel costs and helping family with secret gift purchases (about $1200 will be returned to me.)

All that to say - graduation ceremony January 1st, 2018. You heard it here first!

Targeting $250k by July 2018.

Including IRAs, 401(k), HSA, and Investment Account.
Jan 1, 2016 - $81,396
Aug 1, 2016 - $120,039
Oct 1, 2016 - $122,943

Sep 1, 2017 - $174,170
Oct 1, 2017 - $189,054  - moved $8K into Investment Account from Emergency Savings. While overall NW did not increase much, moving money around into respective accounts pushes the needle dramatically.


Nov 1, 2017 - $196,010 - yippee!! so close to $200K!

Dec 1, 2017 - $201,106 - nice! Crossed over to the $200k line. Let's hope I can stay for awhile. Still projecting Jan 2019 to hit $250k.

Congrats to all the graduates this month!

Nov 2017 - $150,186

WOO! This will be my first year maxing my Roth and 401k and it definitely shows. I just joined this thread last year around this same time and here I am with another $50k. I like it!

I'd like to max both of those next year too, but we'll see how that shakes out with my husband's self employment adventure. We're not quite three months into that, but so far it's going well. Stock sales got a bump with the holidays and cooler weather and his queue of custom work has been growing slowly, but steadily longer. Cash reserves are holding steady so far and my income has been keeping ahead of misc larger expenses like car repairs and vet bills even with my maxed out 401k contributions. So far, so good!

Congrats!  I am in the same boat; first year maxing both IRA and 401k.  Also, go Badgers!!! ;)

Thanks. Congrats to you too!

Meh for the Badgers though. Sportsball. Woo. :P

December 1 2017:  $216,449.55 -- gain of $5,497.73

I really need to update here more often!  Looks like it took 2 years to go from $100,000 to $200,000.  Better than I thought it was!  Based on our changing budget, I'm guessing we'll cross the $250,000 mark around August or September of next year.  Assuming there isn't a big drop in the market or the world catches fire.  And I hate looking for the link to the spreadsheet, so I'm adding it here.

The link to the spreadsheet is:

Jumping in to this thread quite late. I've been in the "race to $100k" for a while, until someone suggested I was underselling myself by not including my house in my NW. So I've jumped on paper but not in real life. Plus my new retirement fund has a pretty cool consolidation of all my finances, so lazy-arse here doesn't have to work it out herself.

Mortgage is paid, we've moved into the house, and after four months of essentially stagnating on the investments, the ball is rolling again!  Between EOY bonus and year end dividends I have a chance to break $160,000, which would be great.  Regardless, absent a big discount on stocks I'm on pace for graduating before 2020.

02/2014: $14,413- new job in December making 38k
08/2014: $17,890

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)

11/30/2017: $160,216.75  (+$29,034.13) We bought a house!

We had a lot of expenses with new appliances and furnishings, but we've gotten pretty good deals on things. I had budgeted around $5k for all of that and we are way under, some thanks to gifts from family. I used the home value minus mortgage formula to come up with the number. My husband is currently negotiating for a new job that looks to have a much more favourable bonus structure and is only 2 miles from our new home, instead of 35! Fingers crossed they accept his counteroffer.

Time to join this thread!  When I started reading MMM my husband and I were negative net worth, and I never thought this day would come - yet alone at age 25!

To be honest I'm not sure if our net worth will dip soon; we purchased some land, are starting to build a house, and I'm having a baby in April so will be on maternity leave for a year.  But hopeful this thread helps keep me motivated!

Net worth includes all assets / debts except for our used van, which was paid for with cash.

12/01/2017 : $102,500

My goal was to hit $100k in cash and investments by the end of 2017 and I have surpassed that goal so now I can join this thread!  Goal is $150k in 2018!

Sep2014: -4087 <--- started following MMM with a 401k that didn't quite balance my student loans and car loan

Dec2017: 170,064

Wish I discovered MMM so much sooner, but no use being regretful. Instead I'm trying to focus on the progress I've made and the possibility of retiring a decade+ early or being able to afford to be a SAHM at some point in the future.

I can't wait to have a long list of gains and graduate to the next level.

Hmmm...so that leaves me $68,583.32 from graduating from this thread! Is that doable to accomplish by the end of 2018? Maybe!

Divided by 12, that would be +$5,715 .00 per month! Tough, but it looks like I have our goal for the year!
