Well...this month has been a bit nuts.

1. Sold our HCOL house. Money was transferred to new location Lawyer to pay off down payment on LCOL house. Closed on LCOL house today. We are getting the difference by close of business today, so I'm counting it.
2. Had to spend a LOT of money this month- moving costs, 1x purchases for new house stuff, travel for moving etc.
3. Organized our finances, trying to get away from having 17 accounts into more manageable buckets- $0 impact, but feels good to have done.

Grand total (cash and investments), as of today Jan 31st at 4 pm:

$499,258

WHAT!!! COMEEE ONNNNNN. Anyone want to loan me $742?

I get paid tomorrow, I promise I can pay you back!!

...
Asides: From the attached spreadsheet if I count housing our net worth seems to have dropped 65k. Some of this is closing costs and property taxes etc. but it seems really high. I'm just going to ignore it. The almost 500k is the number that really matters. In the next thread I'll wipe my housing history and start fresh!

Note, this is household, not individual.

Last month, I thought I was a long way from $500,000.  Last week I thought I was there!  Now...I'm close but no cigar.  Maybe next month...  Doesn't really matter.  I'm socking away what I can sock away.

Jan 2017 $368k
Feb 2017 $390k includes 20k windfall from an inheritance.
Mar 2017 $396k
Apr 2017 $398k
May 2017 $404k
June 2017 $408k
July 2017 $415k
Aug 2017 $423k
Sept 2017 $432k
Oct 2017 $440k
Nov 2017 $448k (added in $10k of shares previously excluded)
Dec 2017 $450k
Jan 2018 $460k

Feb 2018 $465k not bad considering my spreadsheet tells me I had a savings rate of -57% this month. Had a few large annual bills come through and income was down due to DH not working much over the school holidays. All expected but makes makes it look like we're off to a bad start for the year.

Thrilled to be joining this thread! I cannot believe how quickly I (now we!) raced from $100k-$250k!

Here is that journey:
4/1/16: $100,869
5/1/16: $104,268
6/1/16: $107,087
7/1/16: $112,489
8/1/16: $118,328
9/1/16: $120,838
10/1/16: $124,626
11/1/16: $126,949
12/1/16: $132,846
1/1/17: $141,336
2/1/17: $145,890
3/1/17: $152,308
4/1/17: $155,552
5/1/17: $160,430
6/1/17: $165,384
7/1/17: $174,224
8/1/17: $175,435
9/1/17: $220,249
10/1/17: $228,472
11/1/17: $237,860
12/1/17: $244,233
1/1/18: $249,568

And on 2/1 we are sitting at $264,304.

January was quite a month in the market! Hard to forecast when we will hit $500k, but I'd hope for somewhere between three and five years.

Stretch goal is to hit $500K by the end of 2018.

12/1/2017: INV-$256,324.07    NW-$266,011.53

1/1/2018: INV-$265,731.22    NW-$277,837.89
2/1/2018: INV-$286,459.76    NW-$301,344.36

Most of the gains are just market performance. 
Last month was horrible and stressful. My cat was diagnosed with aggressive lymphoma 2 weeks ago.  We spent $5000 on hospitalization, chemotherapy, medication, and new food but despite all our effort, he still died yesterday.  Our contractor is surprising us with hidden expenses and additional costs in the last 2 weeks before our house is supposed to be finished but is acting like the charges were already included from the beginning (they weren't) and doesn't understand why we are upset.  He is also performing work without getting our approval/incorrectly and then getting mad at our "last minute changes" when we ask him to correct it.
I feel like I have been in a holding pattern financially and emotionally for the last 6 months and life was finally supposed to be getting better this month.  There's always next month I guess.

16th March 2017 - $156,970.56
14th April 2017 - $172,158.80 (+$15,188.24)
18th May 2017 - $187,986.35 (+$15,827.55)
18th June 2017 - $219,742.03 (+$31,755.68) Whatever small amount I had in cryptocurrencies went bonkers 😳
14th July 2017 - $200,846.03 (-$18,896) - Vanguard dropped over 5% and the crypto portfolio dropped 34%. Additionally I paid for house renovation, moving, bond, and prepaid the rent. So the drop may look dramatic but it's really where it was 6 weeks ago. Also I own way more Vanguard units now than during the last update.
17th August 2017 - $228,106.09 (+$27,260.06) - Back on track, although I still have some big expenses coming up in the near future. Hoping to graduate by the end of October 2017.
26th September 2017 - $228,382.36 (+$276.27) - cryptos went down by the same amount as what I saved. I'm done with the big house related expenses now.
13th October 2017 - $256,067.92 (+$27,685.56) - Looks like I'm done here. Markets went back up + I'm back to big savings. My portfolio is pretty volatile due to the crypto exposure so it may come back under 250k at any point of time. Rebalancing would trigger massive tax so I'm leaving it for now. See you in the next thread. Good luck all!
...(moved to 250k->500k thread)
16th November 2017 - $312,757.72 (+$56,689.80) - cryptocurrency doing its thing😳
14th December 2017 - $472,428.34 (+$159,670.60) - over time I got used to crypto doubling every year but doubling every month made me liquidate big part of my portfolio. This went against my investment policy statement but elevated a lot of mental stress. Win. I also worked crazy overtime hours since the last update, keeping spendings low and everything else on track.
19th January 2018 - $437,933.25 (-$34,495.10) - the crypto dip set me back to values from early December. Not complaining.

20th February 2018 - $422,637.31 (-$15,295.94) - both the market and crypto dipped. Iíll have no income and very high expenses for the next two months or so. Hopefully it wonít make too much of a dent into my NW.

This has been a high spend month, as well as not a great month investment wise, so once our spending levels out again (after moving costs, and new house costs), it will be great to see this number grow. Hopefully I won't be back on this thread :). Catch ya'll on the flip side!

So I quit my very high paying high stress job in October and went on a long overdue 3 month vacation, which was pretty great!  I've completely changed careers and am just starting a 100% commission based position, so it'll be interesting to see how this goes moving forward.  Pleasantly surprised by how high my net worth remains after 4 months of no salary and relatively high spending on my (and SO's) part :)

Been a few months since I updated on here. Last month has been the biggest fall in our investments ever, just over £14k.

However the blow was softened slightly with my monthly cash invoice into the business account (I'm a contractor in IT).

Jan 2017 - £346,854
Feb 2017 - £388,581
Mar 2017 - £396,119
Apr 2017 - £401,345
May 2017 - £399,619
Jun 2017 - £411,132
Jul 2017 - £409,299
Aug 2017 - £413,486
Sep 2017 - £415,586
Oct 2017 - £434,692
Nov 2017 - £438,434
Dec 2017 - £452,034
Jan 2017 - £456,088
Feb 2017 - £467,243
Mar 2017 - £463,199

Target is for £500k by June 2018.

Onwards and upwards!

03/01/18 - $376,900

$457k Combined with SO.

We saved about $10k and saw a $2k increase. So a loss of about $8k for February.

January was sad, which is probably why I didn't even check in. Among other things, I paid out quarterly estimated taxes, which was a little more than what my net worth increase would have been...

February is mostly "business as usual." Socking away money in my 401k and adding a little to my brokerage account.

(Market value changes only logged quarterly, so market volatility is not reflected here this month.)

Down about $1k- market losses from the dip, which were somewhat offset by a pretty substantial uptick in the price of my RSUs in my company's stock. I've still got my 401k contributions and I was able to throw some extra cash into my taxable account to buy during the dip!

Welp this wasn't the most fun month.  I was back into the 260s a couple days ago, but the last couple days with the market has definitely made a big impact, plus the bit I have in crypto is not doing super hot either.  I've been spending a lot booking tickets and tours for an upcoming trip to Taiwan and Vietnam and paying for both me and my boyfriend, so that definitely adds to some of the amount, plus needing to be reimbursed for a work trip, but the amount would still have been positive had it not been for the market...Here's to next month.  Just glad I was able to stay in this group.

1/17  -  $352,398
1/18  -  $496,807
2/18  -  $484,540

Glad I didn't make it to the $500,000 mark last month, or I'd be depressed this month!  Regardless, holding the course.

12/1/2017: INV-$256,324.07    NW-$266,011.53

2/1/2018: INV-$286,459.76    NW-$301,344.36

Net loss due to market correction and purchasing vanities + appliances for the house.  We are finally back in after the flood.  Still waiting on $20K check from mortgage company and to settle final costs with our contractor.  There are some punch list items that need to be fixed before we will give him final payment and he is taking his sweet time scheduling the work.
