Statistics time!

There have been 87 members to post more than one progress report in this thread (i.e. two or more data points). Of these, 21 members have broken $500k! The average monthly gain for members in this thread is $9.6k.

10 members have tracked their full race in this thread. In other words, they have posted progress reports starting from ~$250k and have broken $500k. I attached a graph of these.

I don't intend to continue tracking stats for this thread, now that I've moved on to the $500k-$1 million thread. If anyone else wants to pick up where I left off or run other statistics/graphs I attached my raw numbers spreadsheet.

So coool!!!!! Thanks for doing it.

Mine started at 252, I think I count as the 11th lol

I almost included you in the graph because you're so close to $500k. I didn't exclude you because you started above $250k. My data points for JustGettingStarted1980 begin at $258k and for Libertea they start at $261k. If I recall correctly, my filtering criteria was max_data_point > $500k AND (max_data_point - min_data_point) > $240k.

But yes, you will be the 11th.

I'm in. Started getting serious in 2015. Have been relatively frugal and have a good paying job so had some MMM attributes even before I knew about this corner of the web. I'm counting my home equity as part of NW although looking for my non-real estate investment to eventually hit $250k on its own.

Heh, if I got paid every two weeks / twice a month I would be there already, but alas I only get paid monthly, so the check is still 2 weeks out. Luckily, they are much larger, so I should shoot past 500k a bit, maybe 505 to 510 depending on markets. (though i seem to be spending like crazy lately, new gaming PC, trip in DEC)

I finally hit 500K this month.

405K rental property equity
100K in retirement accounts
30K cash
32K in student loan debt

Sitting on 503K at the moment. Not counting 20K of value across 3 vehicles.

Date          NW
Apr-16    $155,162
Jan-17    $252,675
Aug-17    $321,753


As of today $348,218 so about 17k in the last two months.

This sounds great but could have been soooo much better. We installed a natural gas heater in the garage, and our fridge that came with the house decided to stop working so got to replace that as well.

Overall it's a 56% and 64% savings rate for Sept and to-date in Oct.

  • March 1st: $298,326.11
  • April 1st: $307,087.83

  • September 30th: 355,730.72

Been busy and missed a month. Only now posting for end of September.
Solid couple of months; good savings rate and the investments are moving in the right direction again!
Sadly, we figured out year end taxes and we need to set aside $20k in the next couple of months, so I am already mentally taking this out of the numbers. Not unexpected but always disappointing ...
The really good news is that without accounting for the final tax numbers we were on track for about $100k in savings this year.

My formatting was driving me nuts so I moved my tracking to excel. (See photo below).

+13k this month in savings. Not too bad considering it was a transition month with lots of one off moving expenses. Progress may slow down in the next few weeks as Mr.HH is currently funemployed and looking for work, so we are a one income family for a while.

But, we may be selling our house (I adjusted the house appreciation to reflect our listing price). Offers should come in tomorrow!!! Next month this table may look very different!

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 I actually had a net worth drop as we paid a chunk of tax for my hubby's business (4k) and a huge repair bill for our investment property (2k). But I added in $10k of shares that I had been excluding for no particular reason. Maybe because they are worth less than we paid for them so I  consider them a write off. Considering the outlays this month we still did well not to drop back further.

Oct-17   292,100

This month I started putting an additional $400 aside into my new HSA, which also saved me $100 in payroll taxes. With two more months to go and an average savings of $6100 per month, I am still on track to hit $300K net worth by the end of the year.  Going to really clamp down on expenses in November to make it happen.

My savings rate is hovering around 80%.

I might make next year's goal something crazy, like save $100K--I can definitely come up with $70K, but the other $30K might be tougher.

+$142k 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 2 month(s) left, and (-42k) more to go, I hit this goal!



...and GOAL! Moving on to the 500k->1M race, so this will be my last update in this group.

Stats....

Time from 250->500: 22Months
Average gain: 11.7K per month (Includes market + pay + everything)

NOTES:

It has come to my attention over the last 3-4 years of focusing on this that the market continues to become a larger and larger influence. I think with this year's massive bull run it has been exceedingly astonishing.

We cut our expenses down at the end of 2016 and have noticed massive increases per month because of it. So spending is certainly a huge influence.


Good luck to the rest of you! Hope to be greeting you in the next thread soon.

Congrats!

Thanks it feels great! (I actually won't "see" it in personal capital until market close for the jump from 499 to 500, and not until Friday for the 511/512. So I still have some fun to look forward to this week!)

1/17   - $352,398
5/17   - $378,770
6/17   - $401,823
7/17   - $425,070
8/17   - $428,620
9/17   - $449,356
10/17 - $450,874

Had quite a bit of growth in my investments but used quite a bit of my cash stash for a project.  Even so, positive movement.  That's outstanding!  But it does mean I won't make it to the end of this race by year's end.

Updated to reflect the past couple of months:

January 2016: $204k
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
January 2017: $294k
February 2017: $298k
March 2017: $303k
April 2017: $307k
May 2017: $310k
June 2017: $326k
July 2017: $347k
August 2017: $355k
September 2017: 3$63k
October 2017: $380k
November2017: $396k

Our goal was to break the $400k mark by the end of the year, so we're excited to be on track to pull that off!

We seem to be increasing by about 100k each year, so fingers crossed that we'll be able to break the $500k by the end of 2018. We're also having a baby in a few weeks, so we'll see how that affects our goals.

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!

Hi all, just graduated from <250k thread a couple of weeks ago so now Iím here. Iím actually thinking of including investment property and retirement accounts from now on, as it helps me being interested in their worth and manage them better.

Joining late to the game!

2017 progress:

Jan 17: $287k
Feb 17: $301k (partially accounted for by 2016 bonus)
Mar 17: $304k
April 17: $316k
May 17: $322k
June 17: $326k

Automatic savings of $1500/month in my 401(k), and usually deposit $3-4k into Vanguard per month, right after my paychecks hit.  I could probably stand to increase that.

Update:

November 17: $365k. 

DH started a job this month, and his whole paycheck goes straight to Vanguard.

So spending was pretty awful this month. (Travel + eating out + drinking, camera purchase, apparel, and healthcare/pet costs didn't help.) And I'm now a contractor, so I get paid the hours I work, but we had a vacation planned. So the two paychecks I did get were a lot smaller than I can expect going forward. Still, positive movement. Just not as much as I'd prefer to see. So far, $150k in a little under 2 years. $400k is just around the corner!

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
6/2017-$395.0k
7/2017 - $419.3k
10/2017 - $441.9k



11/2017 - $473.4k - husbands annual bonus + market + high savings rate led to this huge uptick. Looks like we should reach $500k by Q1 with our normal savings rate.
