Dec 2014: $190,811
Mar 2015: $238,653 (+$47,842)
Jun 2015: $262,010 (+$23,357)
Sep 2015: $276,420 (+$14,410)
Dec 2015: $310,350 (+$33,930)
Jan 2016: $307,436 (-$2,914)
Feb 2016: $315,430 (+$7,994)
Mar 2016: $340,739 (+$25,309)
Apr 2016: $356,946 (+$16,207)
May 2016: $370,408 (+$13,462)
Jun 2016: $377,258 (+$6,850)
Jul 2016: $397,978 (+$20,720)
Aug 2016: $403,403 (+$5,425)
Jan 2017: $444,411 (+$41,008)
Feb 2017: $466,365 (+$21,954)
Mar 2017: $473,859 (+$7,494)

The March increase isn't as high as I had hoped, but we're getting our bonuses in April so hopefully we'll see a hefty increase this month. Household NW is up ~$48k since December 31, 2016, which is nothing to be ashamed of! I suppose it's somewhat unlikely to assume that trend will hold for the rest of the year, though...

8-2016: $369,217
9-2016: $373,735 (+$4.5k)
10-2016: $369,721 (-$4.0k)
11-2016: $385,057 (+$15.3k)
12-2016: $399,209 (+$14.1k)
1-2017: $408,813 (+$9.6k)
2-2017: $427,041 (+$18.2k)
3-2017: $425,204 (-$1.8k)

We've started paying down the mortgage on the 2nd home and I took out about $4,300 from a taxable account to contribute to that effort, so I figured we'd see a drop this month.  Not bad though considering.

+$48k this year! Aiming, for just under 100k in any given year of savings. Though, I am really only tracking worth gains, not savings directly. (So it includes gains/losses in the market) Given 9 month(s) left, and (52k) more to go, I should hit this goal!

My 401k and both IRAs all maxed.

Wife's 401k needs to be maxed over a 12m period. HSA set to max as well by years end.

Nice graph RWD!

Thanks! It took longer than I expected/hoped to go through all 12 pages of this thread.

I left out users that only posted one number. And I offset users that started above $250k (by one month per $10k).

Just playing around with statistics...

The average increase for users in this thread is $10,165/month with a standard deviation of $5,529. The users that started between $240k and $260k that have broken $500k have averaged 22.8 months in this race. Minimum time was 14 months.

Interesting! So far I'm 14 months in, averaging $6,862/month, or ~36 month rate to hit 250k. Not the leader of the pack :-P

According to my spreadsheet your rate is ranked 37th out of 55 users. Though there are a few users with only a couple data points that might be skewing the data a bit.

Graph of everyone's progress in one messy line chart:

So is that RWD that is second in the badassity graph? Thanks for the graph, it's very enjoyable to grog.

Who's first (is that Baby Stache or the Turtle?)

My "differentiation of various tones of blue ability" is a bit limited, but I think I'm 7th or 8th from the left. I think this is a good thing.

The colors are hard to distinguish. The blue line that shoots straight up is Libertea. The first green line is CashFlowTurtle. The orange line that crosses over Libertea a couple times is bkmnky72. The grey line that takes a sudden nose dive and then jump again to break $500k is onlykelsey. There are a few lines there that are sort of overlapped: mint green line is boarder42, blue line hidden behind that is jorjor, orange line to the left of that is our topic creator BBub, and the yellow line is skcook. The pale green line ending around $400k to the left of that is Replicated.

JustGettingStarted1980, I think you are correct. The dark blue line that crosses the grey line (onlykelsey) at the end and stops just short of a dark orange line.

The current fastest user is MickeyMoustache, at $22k/month (five month sample size). Dark blue line that shoots up past $500k in the middle of the graph. That line would likely be further to the left if all the data was available starting at $250k (since I assumed $10k/month for my offset).

Taking a look at my progress, I think I might reduce my "number."  I was planning on $1.2, but I'm pretty sure we can have an extravagant lifestyle on $950k, which I can hit in six years or maybe even sooner.

I made my own spreadsheet by going through all 12 pages of posts. I didn't notice a group spreadsheet, though I might have missed it.

Update:

Apr 2017 - $441k
Mar 2017 - $435k
Feb 2017 - $433k
Jan 2017 - $410k
Oct 2016 - $370k
Sep 2016 - $330k

Feeling more sanguine about our ability to reach the $500k mark sooner than later (stretch goal is later this year if the market cooperates) - I only have 3 weeks left to go with my maternity leave, and we have managed to get through this time without much trouble, thanks to freelance work and decreased spending.

I'm new to MMM and have only just added up my numbers. I'm in complete shock to realise I'm already in this range. I'm also slightly annoyed that I didn't find this earlier because I reckon I could have already retired :/. So many mistakes.

Anyway my numbers are (me, hubby, 2 kids in primary school):

Jan 2017 $368k
Feb 2017 $390k includes 20k windfall from an inheritance.
Mar 2017 $396k
Apr 2017 $398k

I kind of felt like we had nothing as very little if that is accessible.
Super 70k not accessible until age 60
Home equity 202k
Rental property equity 95k. Will be sold soon and proceeds used to reduce mortgage and make a contribution to super to reduce the tax on the capital gain.
The rest is in a mortgage offset account for emergencies. This is much higher than normal as we have paid the maximum of our mortgage allowed without penalty until the end of next year.

Well done everyone on some awesome numbers. You are all very inspiring. Thank you.

Last April is when my wife and I really got on the same page financially and started writing down goals, got aggressive paying off debt, and much more intentional with our budgeting. We're doing Dave Ramsey plan with a few exceptions.  We still contribute 14-15% to retirement, we still carry 2 credit cards that we rarely use, but both have substantial miles/points on them (We had a baby last year and haven't been able to use the airline miles/hotel points.)  and I'd give us a 7 out of 10 on the intensity scale.  We still get food from restaurants a few times a week and don't have as minimalist of a life as a lot of people on here.

We got our rental unit paid off last year, the car paid off last month, and my wife's grad school will be paid off this year.  That will only leave the mortgage.

Date  Net Worth                               Change
5-16   $324,500
6-16   $332,000                              $7,500
7-16   $339,500                              $7,500
8-16   $356,500                              $17,000
9-16   $360,000                              $3,500 (paid about $6k in baby related medical this month)
10-16 $371,300                              $11,300
11-16 $380,000                              $8,700
12-16 $400,000                              $20,000
1-17   $414,500                              $14,500
2-17   $427,000                              $12,500
3-17   $449,400                              $22,400
4-17   $457,500                              $8,100

1/17 - $352,398
5/17 - $378,770

Yes, I fudged a little on the date, but I put in numbers when I can (I mean to do it quarterly).  I'm also still trying to figure out how to quote something more than a page back.  Oh well...onward and upward!

I haven't updated in a while but as of 1/1/17 I am up to 354,045.50.  About 31K is investment gains, 8K employee match, and 37 contributions

updating balance. up to $386,704 invested. Had our tax return and a work bonus in the first quarter. We ended up getting a pretty big tax return, so we have changed our withholding, and that allowed us to change our 401(k)/429(b) to go up to 15% each.

I'll join the party.  I'll track both Invested and Total NW.  Part of invested is from public school retirement.  It only shows our contributions to it and not the matching portion. 

April 24, 2017  Invested --$146,357   NW--$263,556

Moving over from the 100--250K thread.

Savings rate is appx. 80%. Net worth includes my pension contributions that can be rolled over to an IRA at separation from employment. I'm making max contributions to a 403(b), 457(b), and a Roth IRA. Will be opening an HSA once I switch plans at work. No home equity.

Hoping things pick up a little at this point. My goal is to get to 300K by the end of the year, and 500K in 3 more years (or less).

Apr-17 255,873

+$59k this year! Aiming, for just under 100k in any given year of savings. Though, I am really only tracking worth gains, not savings directly. (So it includes gains/losses in the market) Given 8 month(s) left, and (41k) more to go, I should hit this goal!

My 401k and both IRAs all maxed.

Wife's 401k needs to be maxed over a 12m period. HSA set to max as well by years end.

@boarder42 congrats!

Jumping in - we track investments over NW b/c our debt is minimal at at 0% interest.  Today, we're at $342k invested. We're aiming to hit 500k by June of 2019 and are tracking a bit ahead of schedule due to a lump sum severance that has allowed us to seriously bump up our contributions for this first part of 2017, but also means we're down one income for awhile.

Congrats! See you over there in a couple years.  By that time you will probably move on to the 1-2M thread though. Lol

Holy NW increase, Batman! Thanks to work bonuses and a roaring market we find ourselves right at the cusp of the $500k-$1M NW thread! Household NW is up ~$71k since December 31, 2016. It's amazing how quickly it's increasing - yay momentum!
Aiming for $1.25M by 2020...
