01/2017:  $42,000
....
01/2018:  $143,602
02/2018:  $151,025
03/2018:  $158,208
04/2018:  $161,505
05/2018:  $171,200
06/2018:  $186,416
07/2018:  $190,600

Appears to be a slow month but it involved paying $5.5k in quarterly taxes. Still on track!

Keep the momentum even as I report a staggering number of Julius Pepperwood novels having been sold! I shall post the "Challenge within a Challenge" on July 16th.

Lol, its taken an unrepeatable Herculean effort to get 75k net worth in the preceding 6 months.  Additionally, I wouldn稚 sacrifice time with our baby for a few extra bucks.

June - $208,027

Going to be mostly dependent on the market for me.  Don't think my savings can overcome a flat/down market in the next 6 months to get to $250k.

Feb2018: 204,625
Mar2018: 201,747
Apr2018: 184,058 [started tracking investments only]

Lost a couple months of tracking because I changed my investment passwords so personal capital didn't update. This was of course during the same months that I took out a temporary 401k loan, bought a house with my fiance, sold the condo, and put the money back. I still have about 30k in profit from the condo sale, but will wait until we figure out whether we need to do some attic repairs before I put it toward investments.

July2018: 190,242

7/17/18     $241,997    $364,204

My first year of tracking done!  Not bad considering we had a baby this year and this includes paid hospital bills, a month of unpaid time off and childcare expenses.
Looking to do even better next year!   
More stable income from SO should be starting next month, which will be wonderful.

Graduation from this thread is nigh!

Invested Total, which is what I am actually tracking is starting to progress again now that I am back at work from maternity leave.  Took a hit on the rental because apparently our property manager did not feel the need to tell us it had gotten into such bad repair over the years and the realtor market assessment was really not good.  The value reflected is after we replace the roof, gutters, fesica, and soffit all of which is scheduled for this month.

March 2018: $196,371 (total NW $393,470)
April 2018: $197,690 (total NW $397,029)
May 2018: $201,800 (total NW $372,420) hit with a special assessment at the condo
June 2018: $202,198 (total NW $376,525)
July 2018: $208,954 (total NW $380,041) Starting a new job in August which will finally allow me to max out my 401(k)

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.

5/18: $153,220
6/18: $157,062

7/18: $166,413

Back on track! Saved about $6k this month, with some market tailwind added in. On track to save another 6K next month. The biggest perk is my income has been increasing quickly, so living the same lifestyle I'm now saving about 70% post tax income.

Just got inducted into the race to 250k. Shouldn't be here for more than a year or so with the temporary assignment I am on. (Expat)

Last 2 months

June 1st 99417
July 1st  109417


Edit, this is excluding home equity which is probably 40k.

Hope to not be here long!!


June 1st         99417
July 1st          109417
August 1st      121085


Making good progress in the first 3 months to my goal of 250k... Markets are in question.

JULY UPDATE       

03/01/18: $100,871
04/01/18: $104,410
05/01/18: $109,333
06/01/18: $111,851
07/01/18: $115,134
08/01/18: $118,949 => $3,815 increase ($2,552 contributions, $654 gains, $609 debt pay down)

   Another great month considering I am still on parental leave. I return to work at the end of August, so expect a smallish increase next month, as there will be no new contributions. Hopeful that we can crank up savings again starting in September. Also, have some uncertainty going forward regarding my wife's percription medication. Approx cost is about $2400 a month, so hoping my company health plan will help in that regard. 🤞

07/31/2018: $208,928.39   (+6,623.53)

This is still a little off because I don't have my husband's new retirement accounts linked in so the real number should be a bit higher. It still feels like we're spending money hand over fist, but our net worth is growing by leaps and bounds.
Next month should be even better with 3 paychecks and the giant reimbursement from my July conference hitting(almost $2k!). Some of that will be eaten up as we spend down our travel sinking fund for our trip to Paris in September, prepaying for tickets/tours etc. Turns out our right hand neighbor decided he wants to put up a fence so we're holding off on our own until after he finishes. One less side for us to do!

"CHALLENGE WITHIN A CHALLENGE!"*   

June

Canadian Ben  $221,000
Nick Miller   $217,559.28
Virtus    $213,000.00
moonpalace  $186,416.00

July

Nick Miller $231,046.53
@Canadian Ben $225,900.00
@Virtus $220,000.00
@moonpalace $190,600

DAMN we cranked it up a total of $29,571.25 in just one month. Nice job, ladies and gents! (not making any assumptions)

Does anyone else want in on this sweet action?

(*most meta name for anything ever)

June - $208,027
July - $216,157

Going to be mostly dependent on the market for me.  Don't think my savings can overcome a flat/down market in the next 6 months to get to $250k.

Challenge within a Challenge - August

I am up to $220,843 - $29,157 away from the goal.  I start a new job on Monday which will give me a 12% increase in salary.  So that should help.  I still think it's going to be dependent on the market being slightly up these final five months to get to $250K.

July  1  2018 -  180,500
Aug. 1  2018 -  194,000

Had a small settlement check come in mid month, but that isn't accounting for half of the increase.  I don't know where that increase came from, but I'll take it.  Went over budget by less than $100.  This month I'm already getting hit for the annual insurance on cars.  Pro-rated it is fine, but I save money by taking my lumps all at once. 

Still hoping to graduate, optimistically, in April, pessimistically, end of 2019.

Moving along nicely. Lowered my emergency fund and cash position to pay off debt the last two months, which I'm happy to report are all paid back (other than mortgage). Next goal is to fill up all my non-taxable accounts!  Will also get a good bump in the next month or two from a tax return of a few thousand dollars.

I stopped posting here for the last 17 months. Was updating my Networth monthly on my own sheets, but I'm in that boring middle part and I was focusing on other things (Like work, education + credentials, hobbies, renovations, etc). However, I've had a really good year. Due to some changes in mortgage rules in Canada just prior to a condo sale, I got extremely lucky on the sale, raises through work, some minor side hustle incomes, decent market gains, my networth grew to $393,000 on August 1, 2018. I guess I graduated this group months ago! This worked out to an average increase of over $15k/month for the last 17 months. I owe most of that to some very inexpensive but strategic renovations and really lucky timing. It's back to a more moderate level of monthly growth but the snowball is rolling downhill now....

I'm here!! Or at least I think I am.

NW Aug 1, 2018: 132,613.79

But I'm not sure exactly how to calculate the NW. The number above is from personal capital, which includes checking accts, 401k, IRAs, HSA, 529, mortgage, student loans and Zillow current house value.

I also pay into the pension fund at work. If I leave before I vest (or maybe even after?) I can take my contributions with me. I have about $30k (35k by yr end). Should I include that in NW?

I didn't include value of any other personal property. (Car, SUV, small tractor, jewelry, etc) but I did include house value. Is that ok?  Or do I excluded house value too?

My goal by December 31 is NW 225k. A reasonable plan is 90.6k in savings from income. I'm hoping to makes up the rest in cutting my grocery and utility bills. Plus of course any market gains. How do you estimate these?

Some people include house value in their net worth, some don't.

I think different people use different information. Use whatever makes sense to you. I am using this to track my invested money only, not net worth. I do put in the paid off part of the house in the calculations, based on how much we paid for the house only. But I don't pay attention to Zillow, because it will only matter how much it's worth when we try to sell it. If I paid attention to Zillow, I would have $70,000 more than I use in my calculations. Which would be nice, but i don't count on it. But if it makes sense to you to use Zillow, do!

I only count investment accounts minus loans (low interest student loans), so this excludes my house equity.
