Alright, I'm joining in!
NW today is $103,038
On current pace to break $250k by December 2019 but I think the snowball will help me get there much faster.

About time! Jk....good to see you've joined us! :)

Ugh our Net Worth was lower than I thought.

May 2016: $106,529
June 2016: $109,892
July 2016: $115,035

We should be able to increase it by $3K monthly, bare minimum, for the rest of the year, so we should be at $130K by year's end. But we'll shoot for $135K!

August 2016: $125,235.44.

Had a great August with a large bonus that allowed me to max my IRA for the year and open one for my wife. Upping goal to $150K net worth by year's end.

Reaching $250K by Dec 2019 (or earlier!) would be an awesome goal for my family as well!  It's nice to see others on roughly the same course. Best wishes getting there as soon as possible!

I'm curious where I'll be for my next update -- some health care costs and termites in my rental property took a chunk out of NW  One more week and I'll check again!

Man/woman, you're killing it! I wouldn't sweat over one more month. Adding over $100K in NW in a year is freakin' awesome!

Sept 1st: $118,564.37

Milestone! Just paid off the mortgage this month, and now Mint says zero for loans yayayay. So from now on I am including a lowball house value of what both Zillow and a retail estate agent said and including it in my assets while also adding my savings account, which I didn't before. A true net worth now. I think I will still enter the above version in the spreadsheet.
Also going to start doing end of month not beginning- just cos I guess- not sure what one is better?

Aug 2016- $225, 649

dandypandys, awesome job knocking out the mortgage! I'm rather jealous!

And everyone, it's really inspiring seeing NWs go up monthly! I've been calculating ours at mid-month because of how some of our bills hit, so although I wish I could join in today, at least I'll provide some thread activity in the slower part of the month.

August 31 against July 31
Assets
401(K): $99,941 $100,316 Maxed in June, so this is just (meh) returns.
Roth IRA: $24,979 $25,039 Maxed in January. 
Taxable Brokerage: $52,277[ $58,260 I am throwing money (4K/monthly) at this now that my 401K is funded and my savings is being replenished. I am also starting to invest a bit more in VGTSX to shift to a bit more international exposure.
Savings: $6,938 $7,445 This is being rebuilt, but not at 3K monthly like I hoped, because my HELOC jumped in rate and I think it makes sense to throw money there.
Total = $184,135 $191,060

Liabilities

401(K) loan: ($15,942) ($14,693)
HELOC: ($34,328) ($32,523)  Rate jumped in June from 3.49 to 5.49, so I am now throwing some more money at this.  It's probably ~4% with my tax rate.  I might do better in the market, but I'll take this small hedge, since it's a floating rate and it's secured by my residence.
Total = ($50,270) ($47,216)

Net worth = $133,865 $143,844  Up about 10K this month, which is okay.  Last month was 10K.

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
June 2016: $195,382.39
July 2016: $207,370.73
August 2016: $210,598.32

This is our lowest gain in a long time, stocks across the board went down, and the house has finally hit equilibrium with the market, so I'm not expecting any more leaps and bounds from it.  That it's appreciated by 100k in 3 years is pretty good in my book.  Tenants are leaving in September and we're still trying to line up more for next month.  This will be the last fully covered month of unemployment.  A half month in October, then we're going off savings.  I'm really grateful we had a great few years of becoming Mustachian, it's made these past few months much easier.

43% net worth in a year is bad ass living.   Enjoy all those little green men in your net worth working for you for a change!

Hello! Checking in at $217,000 as of 9/1/16 to start holding myself accountable.  I've been to 6 weddings in multiple countries over the past few months, which has resulted in little progress being made over that time.  Hoping to get back on track now. :)

I'm in! New Mustachian here and its time for me to step up to the plate. On 21 July I added up my net worth between cash, Roth TSP, Roth IRA, taxable account and I'm sitting on $96,990. I'm ready to push hard towards 250k.

I'm 29 years old. bring home 63k yearly. Trying to save 50% of each paycheck since discovering MMM two months ago.

Update for this past year: My wife had twin girls this year and one had a major surgery at age 4 months. Even with all that we managed to increase from $96,990 to $137,601. I also got selected for promotion this month so I expect a salary increase of ~15k annually, starting sometime around February. What an amazing year this was. We're so blessed!

Wohoo! Just hit $100,300 today. Hoping I can hit $250 by the end of 2017.
March 2016$100,300
September 2016$137,838

I'm going to have to change something if I'm going to hit that goal by the end of next year haha.

Better to set high goals and fall a bit short than to set lower goals and hit 'em! And you're still on pace to hit, what $230K or so?

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
June 2016:        $160,200 - We are only contributing about 400 a week since we front loaded our investments this year.  The rest is market gains.
July 2016:         $163,600 - We are up $48,000 from last July, which is about $2k behind where I was hoping we would be.  Not a bad year overall though
August 2016:    $170,800 - It was a good month in the market 

September 2016:  $174,700

Milestone! Just paid off the mortgage this month, and now Mint says zero for loans yayayay. So from now on I am including a lowball house value of what both Zillow and a retail estate agent said and including it in my assets while also adding my savings account, which I didn't before. A true net worth now. I think I will still enter the above version in the spreadsheet.
Also going to start doing end of month not beginning- just cos I guess- not sure what one is better?

Aug 2016- $225, 649

Congrats!  How much cashflow does that free up for you every month?  And are you planning to plow that $$ back into savings?  If so your NW should continue to leap upwards :)

I'll play too!  This is just liquid.  I discovered MMM 14 months ago so that's when I've started my graph, to show how far I've come in just that small amount of time.  $60k increase in 14 months - not bad :)  Hey, this stuff really does work!

Ugh, market losses outset much of our debt reduction progress. Plus no IRA contributions were made this month. We should be able to toss in $1K into my wife's IRA in October. Keep moving forward.

Hi all,

I had been hanging out in the Race to $100K before I added my home equity, which got a huge bump in value as a few homes sold around me for really good prices. Here's to the race to $250K!

Slow and Steady

Jan-15    $103,510
Feb-15    $104,580
Mar-15    $113,223
Apr-15    $118,072
May-15    $122,214
Jun-15    $124,279
Jul-15    $126,969

Guessing that I'll hit it March 2018.

Aug-15    $121,517
Sep-15    $119,105
Oct-15    $130,210
   

Nov-15   $139,276
Dec-15   $142,945
Jan-16   $142,996
Feb-16   $145,610
Mar-16   $161,315
Apr-16   $161,141
May-16   $181,902

New estimate is Dec 2017 (rather than March 2018)

Jun-16    $185,289
Jul-16     $182,691
Aug-16   $196,373
Sep-16    $207,180

Recent gains are mostly real estate investment that wont be income producing for 3-6 months, so I don't expect this rate of growth to continue.  Estimate on 250k timeline is still ~late 2017.

I'll qualify my date format as YYYY-MM-DD.

2016-08-17   102
2016-10-01   110

This looks to me good but it's actually reasonably poor because this includes bonus payments for the year. Still it feels great beacuse we are getting closer and closer to FIRE.
