We're down roughly $30k in the last week and back under $600k for the 3rd or 4th time. Looks like we could end the month in the red again.

I haven't been paying as much attention to my money lately, work has been too busy. I finally had enough breathing room today to distract myself with a financial review. We're currently sitting at about $350k invested and about $400k in home equity, but I'm not feeling good at all. With the craziness of work lately the desire to FIRE is intensifying, but when I tallied up my savings rate, it's not nearly as good as it needs to be. I'm sitting around 40% with lots of face punch worthy discretionary spending. Food and random shit I buy on Amazon has creeped up over the last year or two and really become a problem. I need to refocus my efforts!

I discovered that mint.com was actually tracking my car loan as a positive balance, not a negative, meaning that I was over-reporting my networth by $16-$18 K. I'm still in the double-comma, but I apologize to everyone on this thread who was actually above me. Hang in there in this bear market, guys!

Since yesterday was the last banking day of March, herewith the monthly numbers: 

                 LNW      TNW
Jan 2018 - 846K  /  987K 
Feb 2018 - 880K /  1.02M     
Mar 2018 - 859K /  1.00M
Apr 2018 - 855K /   996K   Booooo!   : ( 

I feel like the character Russ Hanneman from Silicon Valley when he lost his 3rd comma.  Now I really get that character.  He's much more sympathetic.

I'm (mostly) kidding of course.   How could I really complain?  I'm still up on the year so far.  I had to check to see where that $9K increase comes from and it's almost all my cash balance in my checking account.  Investment accounts are just treading water with the additions covering the losses so far. 

I changed my cash hoarding ways last year so this is an anomaly but I do have to write a check to Uncle Sam in a couple of weeks and pay some LLC renewal fees, etc.  I'll get most of the remainder invested by end of April, I think. 

I think we can expect a bumpy ride for the next little while.  Hope everyone else's numbers are still in the black for the year!

31 Jan 18 - $603,902.29       
28 Feb 18 - $593,932.00       
30 Mar 18 - $588,668.87    

This despite averaging over $3,500 in contributions every month. The high was $611 on 26 January, so all told over $33k drop. I tell myself that means this month's contributions will be more valuable long term. sigh.

End of March clocking in at 839k. With 3 paychecks, and a tax return of around 1.5 pay checks, I was excited to reach 850k this month. But the market had other plans. Womp womp. My total assets are still a tad above 1MM which is pretty cool - though I think my home value is a bit inflated at the moment.

February 2018: 827k
January 2018: 831k
December 2017: 812k
December 2016: 650k
December 2015: 487k
December 2014: 412k
December 2013: 350k

Mar 2018: 667,963 (+$5,544)

Mostly in a holding pattern right now, not decreasing but not really increasing either. At least it gives us an opportunity to buy some more stocks for cheap(er)...We're still ~$40k above where we stood on December 31, 2017, so it's certainly not all bad.

1/1/18   - 633k / 1000k
2/1/18   - 668k / 1034k
3/1/18   - 660k / 1028k


4/1/18   - 665k / 1032k

Higher than normal side gig income the last couple months has offset some of the market decline.  Got to keep my head down and keep adding shares.

March was a smaller decrease than I anticipated.  I'm pleased that we're still over the 500k mark - the original schedule had us hitting that by the end of this year.

Feb. 5, 2018: $539.9k
Mar. 5, 2018: $543.6k


Apr. 2, 2018: $557.6

Got my bonus this month which is why we ticked up so much even with rocky markets. It was great timing for me since I got to scoop up more shares  for less. We've also made some further cuts to our expenses which is helping us ramp up savings. Staying the course and the future still looks bright =]

3/2018 Update - $756K; $222K in home equity, $5K in cash, remainder in investments. It's refreshing to see we're actually up in total over last quarter, although about half of it is home appreciation, which I consider total funny money as we have no plans to sell any time soon.

12/2017 Update - We hit a big milestone this quarter - over $500K in investments!
Current totals - $719K; $194K in home equity, $5K in cash, remainder in investments

9/2017 Update - $670K; $187K in home equity, $10K in cash, remainder in investments

Somewhat embarrassingly, I didn't starting keeping close tabs on my net worth until finding MMM this year. Thankfully, I didn't muck it up too bad up to this point, but I'm hoping to do even better now that I know better! So, let's start here...

6/2017 - $630K; ~$180K in home equity, ~$10K in cash, remainder in investments

First down month since I have been tracking! Even with a triple paycheck from my wife and a really good month on my part, we still lost $9,000 in paper value. (Meaning we must be down something like $22-25k in the stash)

Oh well! That's what I get for 100% VTSAX! This is pretty fun actually.

Our Stash:
1/2018 - $565,049
2/2018 - $560,628
3/2018 - $573,526

We're focused heavily on debt elimination this year so I've been tracking that number more closely.  Especially since recent market volatility has certainly made frequent NW tracking less sexy!  Nevertheless, I will persist. :)

This year I thought I'd change up my updates to give me more of a historical snapshot and monitor my year over year increase as well.  Tracking my liquid investments only and looking to close the gap on $1MM this year with a stretch goal to actually reach it if all goes well!

12/01/18   12/01/17   699k12/01/16   531k

Small increase from last month; income will be taking a dip moving forward as my wife has turned in her two weeks notice at her job to tend to some family matters that will make working difficult, but we have already been focusing on cutting back on some expenses this year so that will help.  I also have a job change on the horizon so things are changing quite a bit right now.

               Invested (+/-)
5/1/17 --    $631k     
6/1/17 --    $647k (+$16k)     
7/1/17 --    $655k (+$8k)   
8/1/17 --    $665k (+$10k)

Here's my progress thus far:

1/1/2015 - $319,018
3/31/2015 - $358,647
6/30/2015 - $350,887
9/30/2015 - $329,044
12/31/2015 - $340,246
3/31/2016 - $390,030
6/30/2016 - $408.983
9/1/2016 - $447,834
12/31/2016 - $459,043
3/31/2017 - $509,618
6/30/2017 - $520,691
9/30/17 - $553,269
12/31/17 - $557,941
3/31/18 - $583,773

Still good movement.  First year I was eligible for profit sharing at my company since I joined, so that added a bit over $6K to the stash (though only 20% vested so not sure if I should take that out?)  Also annual bonus gets in during this past quarter so even though market was stagnant got a good bump from contributions and extras.  Portfolio gains only about $3K for the 90 day stretch.

First day of a new month--time for another update!  :)

MonthLiquidNet Worth
Jan-17
$604K
$883K
Feb-17$622K$905K
Mar-17$651K$930K
Apr-17$660K$939K
May-17$675K$954K
Jun-17$694K$967K
Jul-17$717K$991K
Aug-17$721K$1,000K

Oct-17$762K$1,033K
Nov-17$782K$1,055K
Dec-17$796K$1,058K
Jan-18$836K$1,095K
Feb-18$823K$1,083K
Mar-18$812K$1,081K

Another rough month; overall net worth was boosted by the addition of the $5K to the value of our house in our balance sheet, and we made our usual retirement account contributions and accrued the usual company match, but still pretty brutal.  Still, NW is up roughly 16% over this time last year; I'll take it!

Onward!

@G-Cool and @kapnfriday and others near the $500k mark -- Please don't go anywhere if your numbers dip below that for a month . . .  It's a normal part of the wealth climb.  Just crack open another beer and hang out.

You're right, we're not going anywhere until we join the double comma club!

I remember a moment six and a half years ago when my wife installed the mint.com app on her phone and showed me that our family's net worth was $400,000. It freaked me out. The idea that we could have that much money seemed overwhelming to me. When the SP500 had its famous 2011 bear market, we were losing $1,000 a day. Without that damn app, I wouldn't have even known.

Part of that wealth is the fluctuations. All you people who are afraid of falling below $500,000, don't sweat it. Build your risk tolerance muscles!

Compared to a divorce the market swings are just small ripples in an ocean.

Hi!
Back at the end of Feb, I jumped ship on the race from 250-500k thread. And then trade wars happened.

I've been patiently waiting for enough of a buffer to build up, but I think I'm confident we are here now.

(Numbers do not include property, just cash and investments)

Aug-2014: 30k

Aug-2016: 65k

Aug-2017: 250k
Sep-2017: 277k
Sept-2017: 290k
Nov-2017: 300k
Dec-2017: 300k
Jan-2018: 499k <- HCOL House sale
Feb-2018: 502k
March-2018: 500k

April-2018: 512k!

Wahoo!

I found an old conversation with MrHH from 2012 (before I found MMM), and commented that "We need to save 75k-100k" before we turned 30.  Feel pretty proud of getting to be 5x that amount.

I also remember setting a goal of saving 200k before having a kid. BabyHH arrives on the scene in a few short weeks, and I guess we exceeded that goal!

All good news this month. A modest NW increase, the final payment went to my SO's student loans yesterday (now debt free except for the house), and I had my work contract renewed, so I have another 4 years of work, which is nice.

When I first joined this thread, my most optimistic projections had us reaching $1000k in September 2020. Now, seven months later, we're tracking April 2020.

Aug17:$488k
Sep17:$507k
Oct17:$526k
Nov17:$546k
Dec17:$566k
Jan18:$612k
Feb18:$603k

Another annual update:

April 2016: $500k -----> saved $54.8k (~75% of income), 90/10 allocation
April 2017: $651k -----> saved $53.4k (~73% income), 60/40 allocation
April 2018: $777k

My investment risk tolerance has shifted over past couple years with political situation, and resulting lower returns last year. Now at 80/20 allocation.

Herewith the April totals:

                LNW      TNW
Jan 2018 - 846K  /  987K 
Feb 2018 - 880K  /  1.02M     
Mar 2018 -  859K /  1.00M
Apr 2018 -  855K /  996K 
May 2018 - 856K /  999K   

Well, moving in the right direction at least.  April was an expensive month due to fed + state taxes, LLC renewals, and auto insurance premiums all taking a bite.  Under the circumstances, I guess I'm not unhappy with the tally.

2/1/18   - 668k / 1034k
3/1/18   - 660k / 1028k
4/1/18   - 665k / 1032k


5/1/18   - 673k / 1037k

Feels like it's moving slow, but at least it's still moving in the right direction.  We had a lot of travel expenses this months for some trips through the end of the year that limited progress as well.

While I don't report on TNW in this thread, this month we officially hit the two comma club on TNW!  It feels a little anticlimactic but maybe that is because I really don't pay too much attention to TNW as I discount home equity.  The below update is tracking my liquid investments only and looking to close the gap on $1MM this year with a stretch goal to actually reach it if all goes well!

12/01/18   12/01/17   699k12/01/16   531k

We had a nice jump due to a lump sum payment that was received, and over the next two months we will have two more (although not nearly as nice as the one received this past month).  Income has dipped as my wife has taken a leave from work and I am changing jobs with a few weeks off.  Without the lump sum, we would have had a very modest increase over last month.

In a holding pattern this month.  I owed a lot of money on taxes, so my savings went down quite a bit.  But I had the money and still have savings so I'll take it!
