1/18/2019: $35,782.18

2/15/2019: $43,365.46

I forgot to update last paycheck again. Paid off another loan, so the only debt I have left is $3K at 0%. Looking at purchasing a duplex now, offer is pending, so that may mess with my NW a bit while I make repairs etc. But I also got a 5-ish percent raise at work, so all in all everything's pretty good.

Mid-February Update

8/31/18: $12,784
9/17/18: $14,547
9/28/18: $$22,476
10/15/18: $24,956
10/31/18: $27,980
11/15/18: $30,081
11/30/18: $36,219
12/31/18: $36,235
1/15/19: $44,961
1/31/19: $52,928
2/16/19: $57,672 (+4744)

Was excited to see that we've almost crossed the 100k in invested assets threshold. We are still paying off student loans which is why our NW is not quite that high but we anticipate crossing the 100k in invested assets in the next couple of months, with us hitting a NW of 100k+ sometime later this year (pending markets of course). It's always good to take a step out of the grind to see that progress is actually being made regardless of how slow it feels day-to-day or week-to-week.

I broke over $10,000 on 9/9/2018. I'm up to $25k as of 2/17/2019. Couple items to note, rolled over a pension sum of almost $3k in November 18 due to changing jobs. Also received final employer match to my 401k in January 19 of about $1,600. Lastly I received $500 in an HSA contribution from my new employer. I offset my car's loan with the value of the car, and it was previously overstated by about 2k so I adjusted that value to be more in balance with the amount of the loan. My plan is to fully depreciate the value of the car as the loan is paid down. At the end it will have no value/effect on my  net worth calculations.

All said, I'm increasing my NW by about 2k a month based on those figures and would hit 100k in about 37 months putting it out to about March 2022. I believe with an upcoming raise, bonus, and other small windfalls that come and go, I'm looking at a goal of December 31st 2021 to hit 100k. Current salary is 49k.

Thought I would introduce myself to the challenge, thanks to a tip from @JCGreen .

Have investments totaling ~$45,000 between DW and I, split in a few Roth IRA's and a 401k.

I haven't seen anyone else mention, so I'll ask - I'm not including any equity in my home, right? Purchased for $248K and have $168K in equity, but I'm not counting that as part of my NW for SWR calculations.

Hope to be able to make some serious headway here and reach this goal by 12/2020!

Yay I can finally post here!

My NW has been over 10k for some time now. However that is including my emergency fund and some other funds I plan on liquidating.

For this I am counting 10k in my retirement accounts. This is not tax sheltered only but accounts I plan to draw from in a sustainable fashion eventually.

For now this is 3 accounts

Betterment Taxable

Betterment Roth IRA

and Fidelity Roth 401(k)

And my starting balance is ...dum  dum dum

$10073 !


EDIT: $10450 woop woop

I'm getting ~290 to my roth 401(k) soon. And I will update at the end of the month. Hoping to hit 100k in 2.5 years! Lez do dis!

Had a good/strange month really. 

Went on a short holiday.  Spent quite a bit more than I'd have liked etc, but still managed to finish the month +£1,956 which brings my total NET worth to £15,223.29.

Think the market bouncing back has helped, along with a bonus from work.  If I keep this rate up I'll be on around £20k by the summer, which seems absolutely crazy to me.

I realize I've been updating the google doc well, but not so much in here..  Latest update:

1/10/18: 53,071
1/11/18: 56,223 (+3152)
1/12/18: 60,605 (+4382)
1/01/19: 67,786 (+7181)
1/02/19: 75,133 (+7347)

Progressing at a steady clip. Been benefitting from some Gauntlet challenges this year, and heavily changed my pre-tax deductions, while working to maximize post-tax savings. Not sure how sustainable this growth is, but the numbers are nice to see.

February numbers are in!

Dec 2017 Ä14.300
June 2018 Ä23.300 (+9k over 6 months)
July 2018 Ä24.400 (+1.100)
Aug 2018 Ä25.700 (+1.300)
Sept 2018 Ä26.100 (+400)
Oct 2018 Ä26.100 (+0)
Nov 2018 Ä29.100 (+3.000!!)
Dec 2018 Ä35.600 (+6.500)
Jan 2019 Ä39.000 (+3.400)
Feb 2019 Ä40.700 (+1.700)

About 750 of that is due to the stock market so my expenses have actually been higher than they were supposed to be. Still an excellent month though! Crazy stretch goal is to reach Ä50k by May/June.

It's been a great couple of months. I'm not expecting to continue growing at the current pace, but it is conceivable that we will reach $100k in 2019.

Maybe not expecting but let's all keep our fingers crossed that it continues.

Dec-2016: $32,870.70
Dec-2017: $58,271.55   (+ 25,400.85)
Dec-2018: $72,493.16   (+ 14,221.61)

The market drop helped me buy more shares at a cheaper price at the end of the year.  While my net worth isnít where I thought it would be (ended November over $75K), the lower number now means Iíll grow greater later (ideally).  [Will this year be the year I reach 100K?  I hope so!]

Jan-2019:   $ 81,866.77  (+ 9,373.61)

Markets not only went back up, but I received my annual interest + contribution into my pension, also received my 401k match, and lastly got my bonus which almost doubled what automatically went into my 401k on that paycheck (first world problem - I need to re-do the math on what my contributions should be for the rest of the year, oops.)  My HSA also received a small lump sum from the company on top my my regular contributions.  That's the best single month jump I have ever had; likely to not be repeated this year, but it's only a guess.

Unless markets tank, I think I will cross the 100k threshold this year.  The thought makes my heart flutter.

Congrats! Keep on going, friend! You guys are so encouraging with your successes. We just got our tax return, and we're opening our IRA accounts with $2,000 each. We're hoping to break 100k by May or June.

I do not include my savings to buy expensive "fun items" like new cellphone, electronics etc. as it is not very big, and I just started it in July. My checking account is also not included as it has money I will likely spend this month.

Net worth:
Dec2017:$7800
Apr2018:$13,200
Aug2018:$22,800
Sep2018: $23,645
Oct2018: $23,658
Nov2018: $23,948 (+$290)
Dec2018: $23,960 (+12)
Jan2019: $27,100 (+3140)

Goal for 2019 is to make it to $45K.
Feb2019:$29,443 (+2343)-A decent month for me!

April 2018 - $14,330
May 2018 - $14,592

December 2018 - $20,923
January 2019 - $21,742

February 2019 - $23,933

I can't complain this month!  Federal tax refund came in and the markets were good.  Can't wait to be 1/4 of the way there!  Next month, fingers crossed...

Favorable market continues, scary if it stays at this pace I could hit 100k by mid-year. My main goal was end of 2019 to hit 100k so I would be shocked if I didn't hit it, regardless of market shenanigans.

Nov 18$22.5k
Dec 18$22.4k
Jan 18$24.7k

Feb 19: $27.2k

Big jump forward this month largely due to a small cc bonus, a medium tax return, and a friendly market. I hit 20 days of my current spending funded forever. It feels good to have escaped the lower 20s! Projecting 30k by April if the market keeps cooperating.

9/17/18: $14,547
9/28/18: $22,476
10/15/18: $24,956

Not much noteworthy for February. We have some larger purchases hitting next month as well as a small bonus expected so hoping it doesn't knock us off course by too much.

Iím in - I love this thread. We hit $50k last week and hope to double that by year end. Then I guess you will kick me out and Iíll have to go find a bigger sandbox to play in.

Much of it is denominated in GBP so our net worth in USD will depend on whether May or Trump more adeptly shits the bed in 2018. Early money on May but thereís a lot of year left...
Today is Bonus day! See you guys in the next thread :)

April 2018 - $52,917.42
May 2018  - $58,400.19
June 2018 - $59,686.34
July 2018  - $65,798.53
Aug 2018 - $72,231.70
Sept 2018 - $76,755.71
Oct 2018 -  $64,348.89
Nov 2018 - $70,839.76
Dec 2018 - $58,351.73
Jan 2019 - $78,256.31
Feb 2019 - $87,795.97

Another nice jump with the market increase and our consistent deposits into our retirement and savings accounts.

Hello everyone! It is my first time posting in this thread, I just made by way over from the race to $10k thread which I just surpassed.

Here is a basic breakdown of the numbers as of the end of the day today:

Total Cash/Cash Equivalents: $31,642
Total Liabilities: $20,131

Net Worth: $11,511

Virtually all of my liabilities are student loans. I also have some minor balances on my credit cards, which I pay off monthly. I've been aggressively attacking the student loans (see my participation in the student loan challenge if curious) and have made steady progress.

As for asset composition,  20% are in checking accounts, 13% is in my HSA and 67% is in my 401k.

June ended around 36,000 (estimate, was too busy to exactly keep track). July ends with my NW up to $38,676.

Happy with my progress, though I've been spendier than I should.  On a plus side, it looks like I'll be taking a new job which should see a ~20% bump in pay, plus a nice sign on bonus. So my NW should begin to grow more quickly! Ohh and my commute will be dropping from 42 miles down to 2.5 miles! As a result I'll be saving a ton on gas and wear and tear on my car.

9/29/17 - $11,511 (First post in thread)
6/30/18 - $36,000
7/31/18 - $38,676
8/31/18 - $40,277
9/30/18 - $50,572
10/31/18 - $46,085
11/30/18 - $48,956
12/31/18 - $46,003
1/31/19 - $53,028
2/28/19 - $58,276



February Notes


Another solid month in the books. If I keep it up the pace and the market cooperates, $100K is in play this year!

2018
1/31 : (5949.05)
2/28 : (5288.30)
3/31 : (4273.93)
4/30 : (2592.07)
5/31 : (629.70)
6/30 : 1,206.77
7/31 : 2,703.97
8/31: 5,651.70
9/31: 8,039.01
10/31: 7,803.49
11/30: 9,531.28

2019
1/31/19: 13,493.35

2/28/2019: 15,766.50

A good gain for this month. I need to start some spring cleaning and sell some of the items that I figured out we don't use over the last half year or so. Hopefully sell lots of that stuff this next month and it will all go straight toward my student loans.

 @ASW Congratulations on graduating this thread! you made some great progress!

The difference here is quite a bit. It almost looks like you had a 3-paycheck month there! What's the cause for the big jump?

I missed a paycheck entry, haha. This year I should have had entries for 1/4, 1/18, 2/1, and 2/15. I missed an entry, there should have been another incremental increase in there. Also tax return came back which bumped it quite a bit as well as two bank bonuses that hit my account. :-)

I haven't been that good with savings but the markets keep helping and I guess good foundational habits too!
Very clearly on track for over 50k before my birthday in May, maybe 55k even.

I donít post much on this forum anymore, but I finally rolled 100k!

Rounded numbers:
401k - 55k
Roth - 20k
Other stocks - 5k
Cash - 25k

Funny enough, I didnít think I was going to make it!  I quit my job 3 weeks ago in order to attempt a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail.  I donít start the hike for another 3 weeks but took some time off to get everything in order.

Iíve gotten a lot more cash heavy over the past 6 months to have a lot of cushion for the hike.  Iíll turn 25 while on trail, so Iím still young and plenty of time to continue working.

Congrats! Keep on going, friend! You guys are so encouraging with your successes. We just got our tax return, and we're opening our IRA accounts with $2,000 each. We're hoping to break 100k by May or June.

Thank you, and congrats yourself!  Looks like we'll both be graduating to the next thread around the same time, more or less!  Keep up the great work!
