Jan 1: 236,254
Feb 1: 250,055
Mar 1: 262,196
April 1: 269,959

May 1: 282,665

$5643 of my gain was money I already had, just wasn't tracking. It was in an old CD that finally reached the maturity date, so I can make it get to work. Even without it, I am well on track to meet my goal of 300 by the end of the year. Everyone here is making remarkable progress.

1/1/16 = 288,240
1/1/17 = 374,668
1/2/17 = 388,289
1/3/17 = 386,895
1/4/17 = 400,066
1/5/17 = 411,208

Pushing as hard as I can at the moment.  Had a few extra costs this month which did not help.
Next month Q2 property price update should help the numbers.

Windows got replaced, so that was expensive and tempered the increase that could have been. Baby comes this month! Savings will drop with that, so I'll get to hang out with y'all here a while longer.

Start of Q2 was ridiculous.  Got a small windfall from an insurance settlement.  Nothing huge but it was a nice bump to our April savings which had us up nearly 17k this month.

A flat line month this month, despite regular contributions our pensions and ISAs all took a dip. Hopefully back over 400k next month!

You're actually up 2.7% compared to last month in USD, thanks to the change in exchange rate.

I'm still spending a *ton* of money on furnishing and renovating the new house and on bachelorettes/weddings (all temporary expenses), so I'm pretty shocked to see that I'm still making progress. It seems like after you reach 250k money just magically keeps appearing lol

I've noticed this too!  I can save (myself) about $35k per year.   I also have a stache of $310k.  So if if the market goes up 10% annually, that's $31k that it adds all by itself.  That's almost more than I can contributed even with aggressive savings! 

Of course, when you add those 2 together (savings plus gains), that's when things really amp up.

why not try doing 250 to 500 in quicker time than you did 100 to 250?
Ha.  Ok, sounds good to me.  That will be quite the challenge. 

16 months is my goal then.  $500k by Feb 2017.  That's $15,625/mo. I don't see how this will happen, but here goes!

Done!  Didn't hit the 16 month challenge marty threw down, but I managed to pull it off in 19 months. Not too shabby.

May 2017: $502k

Ok, well, I guess we're off to $1M now... and beyond!

Starting 10/2016 - $310,000 (rough estimate since we still have a few accounts left to be merged)
11/2016 - $328k
12/2016- $347k
1/2017 $358.7k
3/2017 - $367.2


5/2017 - $382.2

Seems like we're really starting to pick up steam. We've gotten our savings rate back up to where we want it - doing a 60 day frugal 'detox' really helped with this. We took 60 days where we really watched our spending, didn't go out to eat at all etc and I've noticed our habits lately are just much better again. If we keep this up we might see $410k before our first anniversary which would be +100k gain in our first year of marriage, I'd be super happy with that =D

Thanks JGS!  All is well with the little one.  He's fat & happy at 4 months.  And thanks to all for the congrats on $500k (although I'll certainly be back in the $400's after today's market results!).  But the momentum is in the right direction & a downturn will just allow me DCA in at lower prices.  Milestones are fun, but they kind of just come & go... until the big one, I suspect.  Not to burst anyone's bubble, but by the time you claw your way past $100, 200, etc, getting to $500 doesn't create any new sensation (if it's not your FI #). Maybe that's not true for all... It may just coincide with where you are on your journey.  I remember being more impacted by $100, then $250 & even $300.  $500 just seemed kind of inevitable.  But don't get me wrong, I do look forward to getting to $750 then $1M & beyond.  Those are still important goals.  But I've stepped back from obsessive tracking & tried to focus more on enjoying life.  After all, they really are just numbers in a computer.  Once the money is basically automated there's no need to lose out on experiencing life while tracking the numbers constantly!  That's just a little window into my current mindset, anyway.

Apr-17  255,873
May-17 263,835

Which is a 3.1% increase. At this rate, I should be able to make it to 300K before the end of the year.

Jan 1: 236,254
Feb 1: 250,055
Mar 1: 262,196
April 1: 269,959
May 1: 282,665
June 1: 284,827

$5,500 went to fund hubby's Roth IRA, so my savings rate is nowhere near as bad as it looks. I am tracking his assets separately for the purpose of this "race". Both Roths are now fully funded and my last teaching paycheck went into taxable Vanguard. My income will be about $2000/month less during the summer (unless I work overtime, which I don't really want to do) but I am still hoping to have positive change in net worth.

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

Plan is to update the 1st of every month now. 

May 1, 2017  Invested --$147,575     NW --$267,242
June 1, 2017 Invested --$152,388     NW---$272,257

Big jump this month mostly due to another conservative increase in home valuation.

Feeling optimistic about reaching the $500k mark before the end of the summer!
