Well looks like we are going to come in at around 223,700 as of May 1st. Increase of about 5k I think.... 

We are currently on a 3 week vacation in Greece so it's weird seeing our numbers continue to rise and the paychecks continue to roll in when we aren't working.  Got to love PTO!

Do you guys have the same calculation of rate of return on your accounts that i have on my Transamerica account?

Mine is  0.27% so far for the year, pretty crappy, but i don't understand (i don't understand many things yet) how it is calculated, even with the explanation below.

Rate of Return* Year to Date

0.27%
(01/01/2016 to 05/01/2016)

*Calculates the percentage change of your account balance by weighting all activity included in the time period measured. It includes your investment earnings during the period and is net of plan fees and credits. Indicated returns are cumulative for all periods shown.

Hmm my international (vtiax) is up 0.78% ytd but US (vtsax) is up 1.38%. What are you invested in? Also, that's the insurance outfit isn't it? My cousin works for them I think and makes good money, but the corollary is the investment type products he sells make less money for his clients.

Yeah it is the 403b, the fees are low, unless their are hidden ones - i did change a lot of things around last month and the month before that might be it. Now i am VSTAX 60% and a couple of other low cost index Van funds to emulate the 3-fund portfolio. Yeah it must be just because i only sorted out my situation recently.. i look forward to a better innings in the future :)

So happy to finally join you all. It took us 23 months to graduate from the $100k thread...hope to get to $250k in 18-24 months!!

Does not include real estate.

Congrats and welcome!

150k in 18 months would be a pretty awesome accomplishment.  Good luck!

I'm going to join this thread. I was in the 250 - 500K race based on my net worth, but the fluctuations are driving me mad and obscuring actual growth and debt paydown that I control.

So!  I'm 29, own my little condo in NYC (~600K, owe ~360K on my mortgage), finished with my undergrad, law and grad school loans two years ago, and below is my current net worth info (minus house).

Assets
401(K): $90,280
Roth IRA: $23,475
Taxable Brokerage: $40,379
Savings: $5,644 (this does not include checking or some earmarked savings)
Total = $159,778

Liabilities

401(K) loan: ($19,047) (I'm not in a huge rush to pay it off, have 13 months left in my payment plan)
HELOC: ($36,557) (at ~3.25%, this is largely purchase money debt, plus another ~5K that my husband "borrowed" to pay for his share of our wedding, but I'm going to call it plain old debt here.  I'm not in a huge rush to pay it off.)
CC: ($133)
Total = $55,737

Net worth = $104,041

My goal for the year is to get to about $160,000, which I think is doable given the principal I'll pay off and amount I'll invest with my year-end bonus.

It is a stretch goal. We're moving in a month, which will make saving quite easy. But then we'll move again ~ summer 2017, which is a big unknown. Could slow things down a tad or a whole lot. (My husband is active duty army)

Always good to have stretch goals :)

I thought it would take us several years to go from 100 to 250 but we are closing in after only 17 months.  Got about 25k to go so probably another 5 months depending on what the market does.

I really do think the first 100 is significantly harder than 100 to 250.  By the time we hit 100 our monthly spending and saving was fairly set.  We've been going on autopilot ever sense.

Good luck with the move!

I hope so, and I think I'm starting to feel the same way. Just passed 100k in Feb, and everything financially related is very...efficient at this point.

The first $100k is the hardest.  Accumulation gets easier & happens much faster after that.  Getting to $100k often entails buying a house, getting on a career path, possibly marrying, buying a car, having a kid, etc.  Once you're past the big financial hurdles, stashing is on autopilot & the pace picks up.

Just try to avoid the waiting place, enjoy life & don't let the numbers stress you out.  You really won't feel much different with $100k or 200, 300, 400k on the balance sheet.  The numbers swirling around in your brain will just be bigger.  That's it.  At least that's been the case for me.

If you think about it, saving 30k a year means that it only takes 5 years to go from 100k to 250k.

I agree on autopilot. Right now our only real decisions are "save for house" or "save for retirement" or "give money away" in terms of decisions. Rough...

Hi Guys! I look forward to joining you next month - I was about $300 shy of the mark at the end of March :-)

I thought I'd bring something to the party, so here's a spreadsheet you we can populate if we wish:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Z8OcegKpbeNJoqSI0nzoBuypFKqDD7BT2SS60oFEeCw/edit?usp=sharing

*All data entry on the "Data Entry" tab. "The Big Board" tab will auto-populate based on these data.

*EDIT* Opened up access to anyone with the link, had it on private at first

Can someone pretty please sticky this to the front page/first post page of this thread?  It always takes me forever to find it.

If there's room for another, count me in! I just crossed the $100,000 mark last month. It should take me a while because I don't have a huge salary but I love my job so I'm happy doing it for now.

I've noticed that the markets affect my savings way more than how much I save each month. For instance, between April and May I saved $1,538 but my net worth still decreased. Hopefully this forum will help me stay on track. Thanks, everyone, for sharing your progress!

January 2016 $89,998
February 2016 $89,602
March 2016 ? (Didn't check)
April 2016 $104,073
May 2016 $103,790

Thanks, tarheeldan :-) it's been a long road...made many financial/investing mistakes (still learning). I do like hearing that the first 100k is the hardest, haha!

I'm in, I am currently at $219,713. I am including the house and am using personal capital to track. I hope to reach $250,000 by 10/2016 all going well!

3/25 - $219,713
4/30 - $229,057
5/29 - $243,638

Very good month but not for paying off the mortgage - my Roth is happy though. I think I should hit the goal by the end of July, 3 months ahead of target.

I'd really like to join in, if I may. Net worth, not including the house and mortgage or checking accounts

    May 2016: 172,565

Our FIRE aim is 1.6MM, so we have a hell of a long way to go.

Investment Accounts only.

January 2015:   $77,300
July 2015:         $115,800
January 2016:   $124,100
February 2016: $127,500
March 2016:     $141,700
April 2016:        $152,300
Finally crossed the $150k line!  The rest of this year should be rather slow going as we front loaded our investments as much as possible this year.
May 2016:    $157,000

We are only contributing about 400 a week since we front loaded our investments this year.  The rest is market gains.
June 2016:   $160,200

I suppose I'll join in... It's crazy how week to week or month to month things seem so small, but crazy how things over years can add up. No house, just cash, investments, and SL's. Have been putting away ~$4k month or so.

Dec 2014   $101k
Jan 2015   $102k
Feb 2015   $116k
Mar 2015   $117k
Apr 2015   $117k
May 2015   $121k
Jun 2015   $120k
Jul 2015    $126k
Aug 2015  $123k
Sep 2015   $125k
Oct 2015   $139k
Nov 2015   $146k
Dec 2015   $147k
Jan 2016   $141k
Feb 2016   $149k
Mar 2016   $164k
Apr 2016   $172k

May 2016  $178k

I have no idea how this is going up so much each month. As of January, we just started maxing out the 401k's and saving cash for a down payment.

It works however you'd like it to. Some of us like to post by quoting our old post so as to keep a running tally. But, it's not necessary. If you edit your old post, then it will stay buried and we won't be able to track your progress. I would not suggest you do it that way.

Going to buy a house, so our number is going to drop some. Might be in this race a bit longer.

I think I'll add our home as an asset for the price we paid minus about 6% to account for realtor fees if we sold, but that's going to drop us about $10-15k depending on what our total closing costs end up being.

I'm joining in. I've been falling victim to the siren call of lifestyle inflation lately. We thought we'd be getting a windfall, but now it looks like we need to keep waiting. I need some motivation to stay the course in the meantime.

1/7/2016: $119,563

Counting my liquid investments only. Not including home equity (we're not moving so it's moot), the kids RESPs or any of DH's assets.

March:  $109,021.70
April:    $115,969.24
May:     $120,397.76

Higher expenses in May...insurance premiums coming due mainly. Also got overcharged on my apt utilities, and declined some extra work to take time off for family/friends. Still, I'll take it :).

4/30 - $229,057
5/29 - $243,638

Very good month but not for paying off the mortgage - my Roth is happy though. I think I should hit the goal by the end of July, 3 months ahead of target.

Nice!

This month I got approved for a Self Employment Assistance program, essentially I stay on Unemployment but no longer have to look for work while I start my own business.  We'll see how this goes, and if anyone is looking for someone to do a website or anything else software/computer related, PM me :-D

This months numbers:
May 2015:  $100,323.89
June 2015: $106,433.29
July 2015: $114,450.69
August 2015: $118,018.27
September 2015: $121,664.35
October 2015: $132,652.87
November 2015: $138,272.53
December 2015: $144,824.70
January 2016: $149,731.88
February 2016: $159,138.30
March 2016: $172,089.61
April 2016: $177,924.11
May 2016: $182,266.37

Our house is about to catch up with the market, so our days of 4k+ improvement may be coming towards an end.  This month we have two tenants renting our spare rooms which will help greatly.
