We finished the mortgage payoff, now I'm joining this thread!  Hope to reach 250K by 2020, but we'll see what the stock market does.

5/1/17     25,273
6/1/17     52,894  (I believe we transferred some money over)
7/1/17     59,114
8/1/17     67,337
9/1/17     75,486
10/1/17   80,726
11/1/17   85,681
12/1/17  100,005  (extra paycheck month for us both!)
1/1/18    105,431
2/1/18    108,535
3/1/18    111,337
4/1/18    117,617
5/1/18    135,266 (a slight tax refund and extra paycheck!)
6/1/18    146,521
7/1/18    150,573
8/1/18    155,306 (slow and steady)
9/1/18    169,777

This is finally starting to feel like we will actually make it, not only to 250k but maybe all the way to 1M.  Its an odd feeling.  The only thing I can really compare it to was getting out of debt.  It felt like we would never make it until one day we were only a few thousand away.  Im doing a no-spend month to kick things into high gear and cut down on my lavish spending a bit.  Thanks everyone for all the encouragement, it really helps keep me going!

Good month overall.  Next month through the end of the year should be good since I start to get my additional ~1k/mo for teaching this semester.

This is finally starting to feel like we will actually make it, not only to 250k but maybe all the way to 1M.  Its an odd feeling.  The only thing I can really compare it to was getting out of debt.  It felt like we would never make it until one day we were only a few thousand away.

Wish I had your optimism...just feel like I am playing a Pokemon game and am at the Elite Four...just grinding it out endlessly until I level up enough to defeat them.

I'm here!! Or at least I think I am. I'm still trying to decide the best way to track my progress. These are my numbers for NW in personal Capitol.

Aug 1, 2018: 132,613.79
Sept 7,2018: 161,693.24

The big bump is mostly (24k) my annual student loan payment from work.

Your job pays 24k toward your student loans annually? What the heck job do you have?!

I completely understand.  I've had more than a few months where i felt the same way, maybe even like im going backwards.  Just keep grinding away at it, it will feel easier after a while.

In some ways I think this actually gets harder and more important the further you are in your journey.  In the beginning, building up savings and paying off debt produces (almost always) a positive gain most months or quarters.  As you kill debt and start putting more money in the market or real estate or whatever, you lose control over the numbers a lot more.

Dude, you added $33K in just 7 months. I call that killing it.

Good month overall.  Next month through the end of the year should be good since I start to get my additional ~1k/mo for teaching this semester.

This is finally starting to feel like we will actually make it, not only to 250k but maybe all the way to 1M.  Its an odd feeling.  The only thing I can really compare it to was getting out of debt.  It felt like we would never make it until one day we were only a few thousand away.

Wish I had your optimism...just feel like I am playing a Pokemon game and am at the Elite Four...just grinding it out endlessly until I level up enough to defeat them.


Dude, you added $33K in just 7 months. I call that killing it.

Agree with Dcozad999, great job adding $30k+ in just 7 months.

Thanks to some bonuses, decent market performance this month, and copious numbers of zombie novels sold, the Nick Miller clan has finally...and the Nick says finally!...graduated from this thread!

I really enjoyed the banter and getting to know some of you folks, and I'm pretty sure the fun will continue in $250k-$500k.

Well, that wasn't very stressful as far as races go.

Rough month. All the bills from July came due at the same time, which include several prepaid items that will amortize over the next few months, but in terms of cash flow and present value of assets, not a good one. Even still, managed to get the numbers up. The market trading mostly flat didn't help, but the last few days of the month made the end result look better than it felt.

Late to the party, but my progress has been:

December 2014: $89,173 (I don't have the exact date I hit 100K, so including this here anyway)
December 2015: $106,299
December 2016: $147,449
December 2017: $182,600
June 2018: $217,065
July 2018: $221,250
August 2018: 222,274
