Well, my backwards journey continues.  Market losses loom large, buuut... I was able to knock $1,600 extra off my CC debt.  So I'm wearing that hat this month!

Why do you have money in the market if you still have credit card debt?

Brand new to this forum, this is literally my first post. Excited to see this take off towards 250k and beyond. Started professional career in this country back 2012 at 31 years old, effectively starting from scratch. Super fortunate to have gotten a great opportunity in 2016 that has really allowed me to catch up a number of years in a short time span. My wife has been retired nearly 15 years, she is significantly older than me and she is therefore not interested in planning for the future. This is 100% a solo effort.

Edited: Added a lot more detail from what I could find on Mint.

Oct-12: $0.00
Nov-12: $432.15
Dec-12: $1192.8
Jan-13: $1542.90
Jan-14: $7286.11
Jan-15: $16985.5
Jan-16: $26770.16
Jan-17: $58399.77
Jan-18: $95469.77
Feb-18: 111724.81
Mar-18: $112878.91
Apr-18: $117425.35
May-18: $123001.77
Jun-18: $125427.65
Jul-18: $135341.45
Aug-18: $138059.7
Sep-18: $142216.90

I currently max out 401k, my Roth IRA and my ESPP which is pretty much all I can get away with due to S/O not being on board (which is somewhat understandable as she is on a pension already and significantly older than me). I also put about $4400 per year in HSA currently and may consider maxing that out soon as well. We could do with more of an EF buffer but again, she sees no value in it as she considers her income '100% guaranteed'. It is for the most part as the retirement fund she is relying on has done really well.

All done for the month
Oct-18: $149116 + $3500  in HSA which I'm including for the first time. = $152616

Graduation Target is June 2020 but January 2020 is my stretch goal.

Nov-18: $142004 + $3922 in HSA = $145926 Slightly lower drop vs what I had expected but I had some one time expenses and my tax advantaged savings vehicles are full for the year.

Only tracking Invested Total.  My stretch goal is to get to 120k in investments by the end of the year. 


Code: [Select]
        401K        IRA Invested Total Home Value Rental Value Debt         Total NW
Dec-13 $43,660 $0         $43,660 $120,000 $120,000 $232,000 $51,660
Dec-14 $52,943 $0         $52,943 $125,000 $125,000 $227,000 $75,943
Dec-15 $55,622 $0         $55,622 $130,000 $130,000 $227,000 $88,622
Dec-16 $68,870 $700 $69,570 $200,000 $130,000 $281,000 $118,570
Dec-17 $96,294 $1,167 $97,461 $240,000 $135,000 $317,727 $154,724
Jan-18 $101,379 $1,212 $102,591 $240,000 $135,000 $316,332 $161,258
Feb-18 $97,645 $4,248 $101,894 $240,000 $135,000 $314,997 $161,896
Jun-18 $104,527 $4,218 $108,745 $240,000 $135,000 $309,458 $174,286
Jul-18 $108,967 $4,350 $113,317 $240,000 $125,000 $307,995 $170,322
Aug-18 $113,625 $4,398 $118,023 $240,000 $125,000 $303,563 $179,460
Sept-18 $114,907 $4,404 $119,311 $240,000 $125,000 $301,045 $183,266
Oct-18 $109,932 $4,164 $114,096 $240,000 $125,000 $299,806 $179,290

HMM, back to sometime in Aug numbers.  That is a bummer, good thing I have a LOT of years left to keep buying or else I might let these numbers bum me out a lot more.  Based on contributions alone I will not make that stretch goal this year, I need the market to help at least a little to get me there.

Here's the group spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Z8OcegKpbeNJoqSI0nzoBuypFKqDD7BT2SS60oFEeCw/edit#gid=0

GRR... I put in my Nov 1st number and I think I might have messed this thing up.  My name does not show on the "Big Board" tab anymore but there is a lovely blank row where I believe I should probably be.

It should be fixed, just check your numbers to be sure.

Well, October was rough to me all around, but I didn't decline as much as I thought I would. Hooray for forced mortgage "saving" and 457 contributions, as well as investments that aren't as tech heavy as many.

Got some more money in the market right around the dip, so probably already made most of the loss from October back even though I'm still down overall...but here's to hoping for a better November. So far, just a couple of unforecasted expenses, so the credit card bill (when it comes) will be higher this month than usual (dentist, insulation for steam pipes since we are renovating) but shall be paid off in full as always...but wife is on board, we are both chopping expenses as much as possible till the end of the year, so hoping for some good things. Also experimenting with a muni bond fund in my taxable account through Vanguard to see how it goes generating tax free income for a change.

December 2014: $89,173 (I don't have the exact date I hit 100K, so including this here anyway)
December 2015: $106,299
December 2016: $147,449
December 2017: $182,600
June 2018: $217,065
July 2018: $221,250
August 2018: 222,274
September 2018: 224,569
October 2018: 220,241
