Crossing over $200k with a bunch of market gains! Feels good :)

Unexpected expenses this month: a plane ticket for a funeral. Expected upcoming expenses: two new tires for my car and beginning to pay trip costs for our honeymoon next year.

Targeting $250k by July 2018.

I've done gradumacated.  See y'all in the next thread.
NW is still in limbo due to mortgage company dragging their feet disbursing checks and reimbursing the $15K we gave to our contractor.  We only saved $6450 this month which means our money made $6900 or $450 more than we saved.  Definitely feeling the treadmill dragging us forward right now.

Jan 1, 2016 - $81,396

May 1, 2017 - $156,756
Aug 1, 2017 - $170,072
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.

Its growing bigger on paper - I don't expect all of the gains over the last few months to last, but still pretty happy with the way things are going.

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.

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)

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!

12/17/17   $210,178   $328,245
kind of amazing! mostly due to markets and SO getting paid for stuff that's been owed for a while.
Looking like we'll most likely graduate from this thread by the end of 2018. There will be a lot of unpredictable expenses in the next year, but hopefully also a more steady income from the SO to even it out.

This sounds like a fun way to challenge each other :)
Mind if I join?

I just crossed the 100k mark a few days ago and I am hoping to graduate sometime in 2019.
The only asset I am not including in my net worth is my cabin (approx value: 65k) since I am never really sure if it's appropriate to include it in these type of calculations or not.

DateNet worthGain (Loss)
1 Dec 2017$239,686.56N/A
1 Dec 2017$244,059.96$4,373.40

That's a net worth increase of $4,373.40 in a month, from a combination of debt repayment and an increase in investments. Imagine what will happen to my actual investment / cash balance when I finish paying off my stupid tax?

A shockingly great month.  I got a bonus for work and the rest of the heavy lifting was done by market gains.  Total increase in net worth for the year was ~60%.  I'm super pumped about what 2018 will bring.

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)
December 2017: $193,677 (total NW $364,276)

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.

Ummm... kind of a big deal. Logged a little under $13k total dividends/investment gain from the 4th quarter. Grew checking and savings accounts. Put almost $5k into my taxable account and a little over $3k into retirement. And... flew past a quarter million.
$250,000+
Congrats NVR!

End of year numbers!

20K cash (checking and money market account, 1.5K and 18.5K respectively)
115K invested (tIRA and 403b, 16K and 98K respectively)

Total net worth: 135K. Invested 27K with employer contributions, got 18K in returns, only added 2K to the liquid cash reserves because of a mid-year health scare, but overall I feel okay about this.

Just keep swimming, just keep swimming.

Spent more money on the wedding (DJ, Photographer etc) but managed to make some decent ground. Christmas coming up so things may take a hit.

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!
