Throwing my hat into the ring... just crossed 100k in December 2019. As of today probably around 103k. Looking forward to a bonus in late Feb to help boost, but I want to purchase 2 depreciating assets later this year - a cargo trailer to convert into an RV/travel trailer, and a motorcycle to put in it, so I can be a digital nomad and live the RV / motorcycle lifestyle for the remainder of my working years (about 9-10 years until FIRE).   

End of year goal is 150k net worth, which should be doable, except for the purchases and a potential job change this year. I might lose my 401k 100% match up to the first 6%. But I'll reach for 150k this year anyway!

Welcome!  You'll be through this thread in no time.  I'm sure I'll see you in the $250k-$500k thread soon.

6/30/19: $106,071
7/31/19: $112,395
8/31/19: $116,527
9/30/19: $124,973
10/31/19: $135,196
11/30/19: $143,839
12/31/19: $150,705
1/31/20: $163,400 (+12695)

Bonus helped us out this month. On the flip side, we have large expenses planned for the next couple of months so we won't be able to save as much. Good start to the year, though.

For context: I'm 30 in a HCOL city. I'm married, but these are my own numbers since we keep our finances separate. Includes cash, retirement, and credit cards, which are used for normal expenses and paid off in full every month.

3/18: $48,533.91 (found MMM and started tracking)
3/19: $83,762.93
8/19: $101,572.33 (graduated to this thread)
9/19: $104,368.69 (+2,796.36, +2.75%)
10/19: $107,279.56 (+2,910.87, +2.79%)
11/19: $111,107.47 (+3,827.91, +3.57%)
12/19: $112,883.69 (+1,776.22, +1.60%)
1/20: $117,811.45 (+4,927.26, +4.37%)
2/20: $124,417.62 (+6,606.17, +5.61%)

Extra paycheck this month really helped! Chugging along.

Lost about 2k in value with the market dipping today, and still churned out a big gain on the month. Incredible market gains over the beginning of the month.

Iím jumping in this thread with a few ideas and thoughts in mind. I donít plan to add house equity or extras like that. Iím not even going to add the spouseís 401k. Iíll be solely tracking
My 401k and my Roth IRA Numbers to go toward the goal of $250k. I may add the savings account numbers later, but most of that pays toward the last of my mortgage and a basement remodel right now.

My stats:

Jul2019 ó $101953
Aug2019 ó $106277
Sep2019 ó $111050
Oct2019 ó $114791
Nov2019 ó $120215
Dec2019 ó $122692
Jan2020 ó $120521
Numbers updated thru the last day of the month

Looks like I had my first loss in nearly a year. I should have been higher but Iím sticking to my plan and avoid emotional moves with the market. I need to rethink large case viruses like SARS and Conorvirus.  They tend to effect the market significantly. I almost went to safety to avoid any losses, but it got me this time.  Something to keep in mind for the future I suppose.

I couldn't disagree more. The market barely moved at all.

I am tracking only IRA/401K/taxable accounts.
5/31/2018 $100,519.07  - not even the slightest clue on target date...I'll be here for a few years :)
6/30/2018 $105,187.34
7/31/2018 $109,052.07
8/31/2018 $116,748.06
9/31/2018 $125.833.33 (should slow down for rest of year as both 401Ks are maxed)
10/31/2018 $121,400.49 (market pain)
11/30/2018 $120,116/63
12/31/2018 $115,318.38 (more market pain and put some resources towards our new AirBnB venture - looking forward to buying stocks on sale now that 401K is back in play)
1/31/2019 $121,188.34 (next couple of months are my favorite time of year - 401K is in play, bonus and employer 401K match (3% of compensation) all hit)
2/28/2019 $136,880.76 (one twomore fun months, then back to slow(er) growth mode)
3/31/2019 $141,195.30 (one more fun month - employer 401k contribution and last month until max 401k for the year)
4/30/2019 $161,209.95 (going to try to continue speed with taxable account - we will see with a 2-week old at home how this plays out)
5/31/2019 $157,215.34 (market pain decline despite adding close to $4,000 in my after-tax account.....stay the course)
6/30/2019 $168,401.72 ($63,214.38 in one year...stay the course)
7/31/2019 $172,680.44
8/31/2019 $169,675.29
9/30/2019 $169,620.62 (recalculated due to typo in tracker)
10/31/2019 $178,498.23
11/30/2019 $192,486.52 (stretch goal - make this a 2 year race.  It will be a real stretch, but that's what we are here for, right?)
12/31/2019 $209,508.94
1/31/2020 $212,285.58

I am graduating myself from this race as I have decided to reevaluate what/how I am measuring things.  My wife and I are about to purchase our third investment property, the downpayment for which will come from some of the above listed funds.  Instead of knocking down my numbers to reflect this, and suffering the silly but realistic emotional reaction to such reduction, I have decided to use conservative valuations of the investment properties to determine the equity in the property and add that equity to my tracker. 

Accordingly, my numbers are as follows (IRA/401K/taxable accounts/conservative equity in rental properties):

2/3/2020 $333,916.40.

Good luck to all - stay the course, and see you in the next race!

It seems the data entry page has been re-ordered meaning that the names no longer match with the values.

I have named the last version that had the correct order as 'before reorder'. I'm not sure how to restore this without losing the changes made after this reorder.

8/27/18 - $138,916 (if you count the $2500 my sister owes me)

Been feeling that restless desperation again of wanting to be done with this already. I can't stand the thought of obligatory work for another 5-8 years. I'm truly contemplating quitting my job when I reach $150K NW. However, that target moves around in my head a lot with my emotions...sometimes I think I'll quit when my investments reach $150K or when I have over $20K liquid cash...or sometimes I promise myself I won't do it until I reach $200K NW.

......

I'm REALLY excited today because I hit a big milestone that has been painful to reach since my savings slowed down last year and market was lower than the last two years. As of today, I finally crossed $150K!!! I hit 100K at the end of May 2017, so this has been a long time coming.

3/13/19     $150,836
8/22/19     $161,185   Would have been $165K, but I bought my sister's old car recently. Still haven't sold my old car.

January was interesting with a near vertical climb on my investments' value...at one point I looked and had gained over $4K in two weeks. Then corona virus came and effectively wiped out all those gains last week. However, I'm still happy with my NW now at over $183K.
Next month I hit 10 years at my job. This could be the year I pull the plug. Although I'm still behind on my liquid fund I want to use for a sabbatical. Really hoping to buy a house soon too.

I'm envisioning a mid-way temporary retirement now...$225K would be my halfway point. I'd like to have my investments worth $200K+ and then $20K in cash so I could take a year off and reflect on coast for a minute.

I just restored the version you called out. Looks like just Fishing4FI and SquashingDebt will need to re-input their data.

$171,440.50 as of today (+ paid for condo & car & a little in checking).

Over $250,000 counting the condo but it's not liquid and I do have to live somewhere, so I'm staying here until I'm over $250,000 without counting it.

Hello! I am so excited to be joining this thread (coming straight from the "10 to 100k" thread). I did my spreadsheets a little late this month, but here's my starting point:

2/1/2020    $ 100,928.81

All numbers are joint between my partner and I. We have almost exactly an 80/20 split at this point, i.e. 80% of that number is my NW, 20% is his. I manage both of our finances.

I had a big expense this month and unfortunately will also be writing a surprise $3000 check to uncle sam later this quarter (because I made a mistake on my withholding). But I still expect our growth to hold as our average monthly increase in 2019 was $5,329.

Sept 2015 - $125k
Sept 2016 - $192k
Sept 2017 - $339k
Sept 2018 - $395k
--DIVORCE--
Nov 2018 - $95k
Sept 2019 - $126k
Today - $151k

Divorce sucks.  Not only does it take a big chunk of cash out of the stash, but support/maintenance to the ex really throttles how much you can save.  I put away what I can, but most of the increases have been due to market gains instead of a high savings rate (which is impossible now).

Update #4 (tracking 401k only)    It looks like I will stay in the group for 2020.  I am fine with staying around for a bit, but will join the $250-500k group once I am $20-40k above the $250k mark.  No need to flip back and forth when market fluctuations come along.

Here is my January update.

2014 Jan: (129,703.05)
2015 Jan: (115,355.51)
2016 Jan: (82,545.00)
2017 Jan: 2,693.77
2018 Jan: 48,429.84
2019 Jan: 79,517.63

2020
January: 157,492.04

...
2021 Jul: 250,000 (GOAL)

Bigger than normal jump for January because it was a 3 paycheck month.  I'm pretty happy with the increase though considering the market was mostly unchanged.  Onward!
