Up $6,609.57 to $253,986.79. To think my net worth was $0 when I started my FT job in March of 2014. Thanks for the motivation guys! Looks like half of you will be joining me in the subsequent thread next month, and passing me up shortly thereafter :).

Lol nope. An improvement since I only worked half a month, but negative none the less.

Including IRAs, 401(k), HSA, and Investment Account.
Jan 1, 2016 - $81,396
Aug 1, 2016 - $120,039
Oct 1, 2016 - $122,943
Jan 1, 2017 - $128,893
Mar 1, 2017 - $151,772
May 1, 2017 - $156,756
Aug 1, 2017 - $170,072
Sep 1, 2017 - $174,170
Oct 1, 2017 - $189,054  - moved $8K into Investment Account from Emergency Savings. While overall NW did not increase much, moving money around into respective accounts pushes the needle dramatically.
Nov 1, 2017 - $196,010 - yippee!! so close to $200K!
Dec 1, 2017 - $201,106 - nice! Crossed over to the $200k line. Let's hope I can stay for awhile. Still projecting Jan 2019 to hit $250k.
Jan 1, 2018 - $205,595.91
Feb 1, 2018 - $216,842.97
Mar 1, 2018 - $205,429.70 - Yikes, all my contributions and then some are gone.... Oh well, keep plugging away! Bonus hits this month, so I will hopefully see a bump.
Apr 1, 2018 - $214,541.70 - nice, climbing back up to Feb numbers.

May 1, 2018 - $218,916.00 - finally surpassed February's high! Still hoping to recover more of my contributions this year, as I seem to be missing some....... ha

June 1, 2018 - $220,322 - this is just market increases. I changed jobs and have 30 days to hold until 401k will start again. This also includes the $1500 loss of employer contributions I missed out for not staying until 100% vested. I'll take the loss any day to be away from that place.

5/31/2018:   $194,415.98   (+5,792.65)

Perception can be crazy. I've been feeling super down this month because we've been spending a lot, but apparently we've done pretty well. I have around $700 in work expenses that need to be reimbursed and we also bought our plane tickets/hotel for our trip to Paris in September. On the bright side, my husband is getting his bonus situation sorted so we should have some extra income coming in every month. We are going to try for a frugal June to rein back in our spending. Maybe hit $200k next month?

Brand new to this forum, but I've been reading MMM since I started my first "real job" in late 2014. Really excited to jump in here for some motivation!

Summary of finances so far:
01/2014: $1.5k
07/2014: $4k
01/2015: $15.3k
07/2015: $28.4k
01/2016: $54.8k
07/2016: $69.5k
01/2017: $89.7k
07/2017: $102.5k (hooray!)
01/2018: $136.8k (bought a house with equity baked in)
02/2018: $151.1k
03/2018: $155.4k
04/2018: $160.0k
05/2018: $169.8k (company finally got 401(k) last month, so I'm able to save a lot more. And 3 paychecks doesn't hurt.)

I can't wait until that 200,000 milestone.

Going to start recording two columns, one for cash + savings and another for total NW.
06/2018: $149.0k  $172.2k

May 1   2018 -  171,000
June 1  2018 -  178,000

Was under budget for the first time in a long time, which helped quite a bit.  Should hopefully have another low spend month in June since it is too damn hot to do anything, and I may have some short term reimbursable business expenses coming up I'll need to save up for.  But it is nice to finally get back on pace from a largely stagnant 2018!

Baby arrived healthy this month :). Off work on parental leave, so pleased with the foward progress. June will be another month of parental leave so expect another smallish increase this month.

Congratulations! Hope you're getting some sleep.

I am joining this race from the $10k-$100k race!  Hopefully not too early.

I don't count true NW but thought it would be nice to look back and see it, so I added it!  What I am really tracking is the "Invested Total" column.  I also don't count different savings accounts if they have a specific purpose (maternity leave, self-employment taxes, etc).

What is happening in 2018:  Baby #2 is due in late March!  I accepted a job offer last week that includes a 30+% raise. I will not be able to contribute to the new company 401k until I have been there for 30 days, very close to when I take unpaid maternity leave, and we are holding off on putting anything into the IRA until after maternity leave so our Invested Total should follow the market increases/dips for the next several months with very little contributions added.  We also plan to finish off student loans in 2018 (finally).  If DH's business continues growing as it has for the last few months I would love to max his IRA and then will need to make decisions of paying down debt vs investing in another rental vs increasing my 401k vs opening an IRA for me vs increasing contributions to 529 Plans.

Back at work, and as planned we did not contribute anything to investments while I was out so but there were some 401k contributions made in March before leave. The invested balances for end of May are a little bit of a guess based on the balance today since I did not check these things while on leave. 

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
May-18 $105,000 $5,000 $110,000 $240,000 $135,000 $310,837 $174,163

12/31/2017 $130,952.23 ~5.58%   - Side note: previous month didn't have tax liens so this % is a little skewed
1/31/2018  $135,011.70 ~ 3.10%
2/28/2018  $135,864.07 ~ 0.63%
3/30/2018   $138,236.93 ~2.39%
4/31/2018   $146,471.66 ~5.96%

5/31/2018 $149,243.29 ~ 1.89%

Numbers based on Mint

Little late and I suspect next month will be a similar number but it's a semi planned purchase.  (New PC, after 8 year it's time for an upgrade.)

Update for June

Total Net Worth:

May 2018 - 104,770
June 2018 - 111,962

Didn't get to updating my figures right at the beginning of the month so that's why the jump is so big.  Stretch goal is to hit 150k by end of year, going to take some serious work to get there.

Hey @moonpalace, I didn't mean to leave you out! You, me and @Canadian Ben are all racing to the goal by December 31st.

I don't want to brag, but I just sold three more copies of my zombie novel, so that's another $2.97 toward my goal!

I want in!

I cannot remember the last time I posted so below are my numbers.

Dec-17: 190k
Jan-18: 198k
Feb-18: 199k
Mar-18: 201k
Apr-18: 207k
May-18: 213k

My projections have me crossing the 250k line in December.

Hey @Virtus , I hope you don't mind the tag but it's so easy to miss posts directed at specific folks on this forum. So it's officially you, me, @Canadian Ben and @moonpalace. I sold more zombie novels this month so it's not really fair to the rest of you, but oh well. I'll post my numbers in a few days (I post mid-month)

I opened two bank accounts and a CC for welcome bonuses. They are my zombie novels :D

So the "Race within a Race" update is:

@Canadian Ben  $221,000
Nick Miller   $217,559.28
@Virtus    $213,000.00
@moonpalace  $186,416.00

Let's all hit $250K by year's end even if it means taking in three roommates and surviving all the whacky hi jinks that ensue.

May 2017    $100,755

So Mint has me at just over $100k, woohoo.  I expect it will take 4-5 years to reach $250k at my current pace. Hoping to accelerate that.  We shall see.  Still have a bit of low interest debt to pay off.  Making steady progress.
I thought I crossed the $100k line in June but it was May.  Oops. I've been looking forward to my one year check up and then missed it.
May 2018  - $141,036
Increase of $40,281 in a year.  Respectable. I feel good about this. 
Hoping to be at $250k Dec 2019

I'm also tracking, optimistically, a $250K graduation by year end.
