With new construction going for sale nearby Zillow is no longer a reliable estimate, showing gains of $20k this month, lol.  Instead I'm putting in the number that I've listed the house for, though there will be around $20k loss from that due to agent fees and such, not including if we take an offer under listing price, or fix anything.

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
September 2016: $211,858.91
October 2016: $217,642.90

Sold a lot of stuff last month too, and will be selling the car this month, which will help to soften the blow.  Hopefully end up selling the house before years end, even though that means we'll end the year below $200k, to think we started at $149k and only worked for 3 months with a handful of side jobs, I'd say we still did fairly well.

July             $98,467.26     +$5,148.77
August     $104,622.34     +$6,155.08
October     $109,535.81     +$4,913.47
November  $113,963.46     +$4,427.65

Humming along in this boring period of accumulation. Got a big vacation to central America coming up in November but shouldn't have any hit to the NW since I have a separate 'travel account' not factored into my NetWorth. Feels like a free vacay! Congrats to everyone on their continued progress... and good luck with however the market reacts to a Trump Presidency (not that I want that...)

Nov. 1 2015:  $101,701.11 --- gain of $8,228.48
Dec 1 2015:  $106,488.64 --- gain of $4,787.53
Jan. 1 2016:  $107,709.77 --- gain of $1,221.14
Feb. 1 2016:  $106,318.40 --- loss of $1,402.91
Mar. 1 2016:  $108,550.55 --- gain of $2,232.15
Apr. 1 2016:  $115,724.63 --- gain of $7,174.08  woohoo market swing up!
May 1 2016:  $119,946.35 --- gain of $4,221.72
June 1 2016:  $125,160.93 --- gain of $5,214.58
July 1 2016:  $127,094.93 --- gain of $1,934.00
August 1 2016:  $133,039.69 --- gain of $5,944.76
September 1 2016:  $136,465.21 --- gain of $3,425.52
October 1 2016:  $140,391.81 --- gain of $3,926.60

November 1 2016:  $145,497.13 --- gain of $5,105.32

Extra large jump this month due to two extra paychecks.  Stock market didn't help us though.  The next two months will probably be uneventful and back to the usual gains of $3,000 or so.  But as of this month we beat last year's total net worth increase, woohoo!

Including home equity (based on a recent appraisal)
10/1/2016: $208,626.09 
11/1/2016: $210,098.56  +$1,472.47

Excluding home equity
10/1/2016: $98,680.19
11/1/2016: $99,290.31    +$610.12

So I'm almost out of this group when I include the home equity, but I'm just entering it without it.

Thank you! I just had a discussion with my boss yesterday about a possible promotion in May when I hit 2 years in this position. Should be another 10k -15k bump. Just have to hit my goals first! Also my husband will graduate in May and he has a job lined up with a 75k base pay so we'll be increasing our savings quite a bit.

Sept 2016    $106,084.00   
Oct 2016       $107,559.00
Nov 2016      $103,227.00

Slight decrease this month as I moved to a new state (it cost about $1000 to ship my stuff on a truck with movers on both ends), bought a car, and took two weeks without a paycheck between jobs. HR messed up my TSP contribution so I missed out on a 5% match for one pay period - I've increased my contribution to hit $18k for the year. Pretty minor in the scheme of things but I'm still annoyed about it.

Hello everyone! I just tipped over into six figures on Monday so I'm here to join you all in doubling my money and then some! I'm tracking just my stash and sitting right at $100,378 which includes a 401k, Rollover IRA, and a Roth IRA. The IRAs are at Vanguard and the 401k is a variable group annuity through John Hancock with stupidly high fees. Ugh. In the land of things I actually have control over, my 401k contributions are set to max out next year and I've got my Roth contribution sitting in an account waiting for the new year so next year should be my first one where I completely max my available tax advantaged accounts. To celebrate, I'm planning on starting a taxable account. :)

Sept 30 update since mid-August...   from $103K to $108K.   
End of Oct update:   107K (typical market fluctuation) despite adding $500 in cash.   November has some nice quarterly dividends coming due so fingers crossed the market behaves itself towards year end...
End of Nov update: 110K thanks to quarterly divys and $300 in cash saved.  Slow and steady...

Up to 109k thru October 31. It blows my mind that it is possible to improve net worth by $9k in 3 months.

Probably going to fall a bit this month, as there is an outstanding check for $6k. Bought a new car. The timing belt in my old car broke, and that did all the engine damage that can do. (Did you know that 2010 Hyundai Accents have timing belts? Well I didn't. Now I do.) It had 155k miles, and the repair would have been more than the car was worth. Sucks--that thing was a damn champ. I didn't put a dollar for repairs into that car, just maintenance. I was saving for a potential car purchase anyways, so I figured now was time--155k miles on a car that needs a repair more expensive than the car itself. I actually got another 2010 Accent, but this one only had $38k miles. $5900--and had enough in cash to just buy the thing outright. Emergency fund FTW!

Small drop, but not nearly as bad as it could have been. $107,889

It looks like I skipped this last month.  Whoops!  So, end of November against end of September

Assets
401(K): $100,785 $100,950 Maxed in June, so this is just (meh) returns.
Roth IRA: $25,070 $25,586 Maxed in January. 
Taxable Brokerage: $62,354 $71,029 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: $7,510 $8,661 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.  I'm due with our first child in four weeks, so this will probably get wiped...
Total = $195,719 $206,226

Liabilities

401(K) loan: ($13,439) ($10,400)  I'm guessing on this because my 11/30 payment isn't reflected yet. 
HELOC: ($31,015) ($27,980)  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 = ($44,454) ($38,380)

Net worth = $151,265 $167,846  Up about 16K over the last two months, which is okay.  I am getting my bonus (and two more paychecks) this year, so I'm hoping I'll be at 210K by year's end.

October: $151,742.
November: $155,076

Haven't included any of hubby's numbers yet because I have been so busy. Plus I kind of like knowing how I am doing on the journey with just what I am saving. We won't hit our savings goals this year but I have to remind myself we paid off $8k in medical bills in about 12 months so that alone is an accomplishment. And this is the first year I have contributed the max to my 401k and IRA.

Just the stash
-----------------------
Dec 2016 - $101,670.70


Here's my official start. I'm up ~$1,300 in the week since I popped into this thread! That's from the $1k I used to open up my very first taxable investment account and the half of a 401k contribution that the market didn't eat.

You're killing it!

But you don't have to get "knocked down," at least on this thread, when you buy your new home. I, and many others, include all assets, including home equity, in their net worth calculation. Now I include a very low number for household goods, because if I was forced to liquidate, I'd probably get 10 cents or 20 cents on the dollar, but with a home, I think it is fair to include the equity at fair market value.

Was at about $185k start of the year (guesstimate because I wasn't tracking it back then!) and currently at $246,585.30(ish). Hoping to clear $250k before the end of the year.

Thanks Nick! I suppose I should probably count the assets for my consulting business and all as well as the cars and stuff,  but that's a whole 'nother spreadsheet of fun. Next update I'll consider including those. I was also debating whether to include invoices that have yet to be collected, but I'll wait on those until I can see the money in the account, it's easier than adjusting later if I have issues with a client.

Thanks!  It's weird, there's some psychological hump that hitting $200k has helped me over.  It was like "Meh, $150k not a big deal".  But $200k?  Big deal!  At least to me.  It's only $50k more, but damn it feels so freaking satisfying.

I think it's a big deal. And in another 50k, you get to say "quarter mil" - I have a feeling that's going to be very satisfying when we get there :-)

That might happen for us in the next couple of weeks - my wife is in the process of moving her defined-benefit pension from her former employer and rolling it to a traditional IRA, it's a $72k payout.  So $250k might come VERY quickly :)

You and I are pretty much in lock-step! I have a bit more cash than usual in my checking account at the moment (not included in my reported figures) that I'll front-load into my IRA early next year, but would be neat to see us both make a steady progress up to $250,000 together :).
