I'm in!

April 19 $37,975
May 19  $43,823
June 19 $50,556
July 19  $81,732

I didn't start tracking until this year, even though I found MMM about two years ago. (The big jump between June and July was realizing one of my accounts wasn't linked properly and wasn't reporting to my bottom line.)

Considering I was underwater on a house and making car payments three years ago, I'm doing very well! Zero debt, and worth about 1.5x my annual income. I'm still behind by some metrics, but I'm looking forward to how much I can save in future instead of back at past mistakes.

7/19: $96,745.04 (+6,329.74)

Reporting early since I'm about to go out of town. Getting very close, though my net worth keeps vacillating with the market. I'm not convinced I'll stay above the threshold once I reach it...

Got back from my trip, and opened Personal Capital to see a net worth of $100,555.32. Wow.

The number isn't really real because I owe my wife for my half of July rent and our vacation expenses, but I still wanted to mark the moment. We'll see if I can get it back up again by 8/1.

Just graduated from the 50k thread, figured I'd join this one. My savings journey after graduating from university started at about 10k, so this thread is appropriate. Here's my recorded history:

January 2018: $18,944.35
February 2018: $22,047.46
March 2018: $23,463.61
April 2018: $24,224.19
May 2018: $26,173
Jun 2018: $29,519.62

October 2018: $29,676.50
November 2018: $32,923.90
December 2018: $34,394.85
January 2019: $39,825.43
February 2019" $43,508.66
April 2019: $48,394.91
July 2019: $65,536.55 (+$17,141.64)

The reason fro the big jump during the last three months is because as a teacher, a portion of my paycheque is withheld each month. This was all paid out to me at the beginning of July. Essentially I got three paycheques at once (June, July, and August). But this also means I won't be getting my next paycheque until the end of September. It was a tough year, so I do plan on using some of this money to vacation, but I don't expect to fall below $58,000 before my September paycheque. I also have small amounts of money trickling in from side hustles.

Goal is to each $100,000 by Summer 2020. A good chunk of this will be used as a downpayment, but I won't be purchasing until 2021 at the earliest.

Welcome to the thread, just to clarify, this is a thread for net worth of 10k >>> 100k. This is not the save as that $50k thread where the goal was to save $50k period. So unless you're debt free you might have to adjust your numbers if you're trying to remain accurate to the thread. Also might want to consider what else might affect your net worth in terms of other assets (retirement, hsa, etc) besides your savings account.

Ah, okay. I have no debt, but I also don't own a home. My car is a 1997 Chevy that I paid $900. Runs good, but don't know if I'd be able to sell it, so won't count that! I have lots of high priced kitchen gear, which would go for high dollar on the resale market, but I won't count those either as they are too easy to inflate.

I have two defined pension accounts. 1 of them I'm vested in but have only made around $6,000 in contributions. Since it's defined benefit, it's hard to figure out a value. There is a commuted value if I ever wanted to take it, but I have no idea what it would be. So let's say $3000 to be on the safe side.

The other pension account, I'm not vested in. I've made $7,678.96‬ in contributions. Since I'm not vested, the agreement is that I can take back all my contributions if I were to ever leave the career before being vested (another 4 more years worth of employment). So I can count that entire amount.

$65,536.55 + $7,678.96 + $3,000 = ‬ $76,215.51

I'm closer than I thought I was :)

Just contacted my former pension plan. Commuted value is difficult to calculate and I'll get a figure in six months. But I was assured I will get at least my contributions + interest, so: $6,826.01

So my current net worth:
$65,536.55 + $7,678.96 + $6,826.01 = ‬ $80,041.52‬  Woot!

Now as fun as that exercise was, I'm going to retract my own statement a little and say that generally there are things, completely up to your discretion, that are indeed better off excluded. I think an easy example is like an apartment deposit, you know it's your money technically, but it could go away depending on certain factors. So remember that a bird in hand is worth more than 2 in the bush and just be realistic with what you have, will have, and might not actually have for a long period or ever.

In your case it seems those things you mentioned are included/excluded accordingly:)

July 12, 2019: 99,582.15

Kind of side-eyeing this, because I feel like I have to missing something. But if I am I can't find it.

My work has a wellness rewards program where you can do stuff to get Amazon gift cards: an annual wellness check, a month-long fitness challenge, etc. They also have online learning modules. I signed up for one on growing an emergency fund back in September, figuring I'd eyeroll my way through it as a Moderately Frugal Person with a pre-existing e-fund, and cash in my $50 without doing anything I wouldn't have been doing already. And damned if it didn't actually end up being helpful--I've never been that big on automated transfers, but it made me automate an additional savings stream that FOR SURE helped me through the financial carnage of 2019. I just completed the last challenge step, so now I'm up a few hundred dollars in savings AND $50 for Amazon. Win-win.

I'm in!

July 12, 2019: $66,565

It took me 11 years to get there.
I live in Hungary, so my salary (~$1.5k/month net including yearly bonus and benefits) is quite low compared to the US ones :)

Long-time lurker, first post!

Usually track my net worth quarterly, but may start doing it more often.

4/1/18 - 8,288.95
11/14/18 - 17,977.82
3/30/19 - 24,649.79
7/1/19 - 29,604.18

I count cash, checking account, savings accounts, Roth IRA, 401h, 457, and HSA balance. I also throw $3000 in for the value of my car. KBB gave me that value, I somewhat doubt I could fetch that for it - but it's good enough for me in regards to this exercise. I also have a defined benefit pension plan through my work, but I do not count any of it's value towards my net worth as it's difficult to translate current value vs. potential value. Carry no debt of any sort at the moment.

Welcome @CrabboStache and @kaposzta!  You picked a great first thread to post in CrabboStache, and kaposzta it took me about 13 years to get to 100k so no worries.  You're both doing great!

We just hit $51K in invested assets! Very excited to be more than halfway. We're not moving as quickly as some others here, but I hope to be finished by end of 2020!

Wait WHAT!! I made it!! I definitely wasn't expecting it. In fact, I completely forgot to check my networth at the beginning of the month, only just did it. I got a very generous 2k gift from my parents (thank you, mom and dad!) and the markets were very nice to me as well.
 
So I guess I graduate this thread earlier than I anticipated! Thank you all for the support along the way! See you all in the next thread :)

Hiya, I've recently discovered this forum and thought I'd join the race

27F, single

Savings: €10.6K
Debt: €1.3K (at 0.01%)
NW: €9.288.21

I will start with investments next month once I've figured out the best vehicle. I won't count my pension, because I can't touch that until I'm 68. My goal for the end of the year is NW of €14.500, which would be €11.600 up from Jan 2019. I think at this pace it will take me at least 5 years. Sounds awefully slow compared to lots of you, guys!

Hiya, I've recently discovered this forum and thought I'd join the race

27F, single

Savings: €10.6K
Debt: €1.3K (at 0.01%)
NW: €9.288.21

I will start with investments next month once I've figured out the best vehicle. I won't count my pension, because I can't touch that until I'm 68. My goal for the end of the year is NW of €14.500, which would be €11.600 up from Jan 2019. I think at this pace it will take me at least 5 years. Sounds awefully slow compared to lots of you, guys!

Welcome to the forum and the races, don’t worry about the pace too much!  100k saved in 5 years or so is already better than 95% of people on the planet.  It’s been almost 5 years since I found MMM, and I’m now hitting 100k.  Took the first year to get to 10k, then 2.5 more to get to 50k, now I’m up almost 50k in the last 1.5 years.  It’ll go faster and faster for you as you earn more, save more and start getting compounded returns.  You will have huge figures invested in no time if you get the saving and investing on autopilot.

To add to that; most people get there faster than they anticipated (for some awesome examples, check the 'Long term NW goals' thread). You may get raises, find a side gig, your investments may take off once you've started them, you may get creative in cutting costs.

When I started in this thread I thought I'd end my 4 year job contract with about €60k, now I expect it to be in the €90-100k range because apparently I spend less and earn more than 2017 me expected.

Thanks guys! I know, it just feels awfully slow ATM, even if I made amazing progress in the last 3 years, although I don't have records for all of it:

June 2018: -€60
Jan 2019: €2875.28
June 2019: €9288.22

I'll second that. When I started tracking in January, I had lofty hopes of reaching $100k by the end of 2019. At halfway through the year, it's looking like I'll hit $100k well ahead of schedule, and even a market downturn wouldn't stop me from hitting it this year.

A little bit late posting, but these are my figures from 22/07.




My N/W has increased by £733 which is lower than what I've been averaging recently, but still going in the right direction.

New graduate from the race to 50k thread joining in, already used that to track net worth, so no adjustments needed.

I'm a 26 year old guy, living together with my GF in one of the bigger Dutch cities. We are lucky enough to both make decent money for our age and Dutch standards, but rent is rather high. A big part of the numbers above is my half of the down payment we're saving up. GF is very frugal, and I've only just cathced up with her money wise: joint NW is slightly over 100K now! We keep finances separated, so I'll be tracking for myself only.

First six months of 2019 were very fortunate for me: vacation pay, extra monthly pay as a bonus and two holidays that were less expensive than expected. Now it's just hoping I can continue the streak. Next goal: 60k on the 5th of december ("Sinterklaas").

Best of luck to everyone posting and reading here, happy stashing!

Dec 2017 €14.300
June 2018 €23.300 (+9k over 6 months)
Dec 2018 €35.600 (+13.3k over 6 months)

I broke $10,000 on 9/9/2018. I'm up to $25k as of 2/17/2019.

With my paycheck tomorrow and the recent gains in market i'm around 32650 after a few minor expenses are paid out in the next few days. So 4 months since 25k and i'm at 32650. A change of 7650 / 4 is about 1912 a month.

My 8/2/19 balance (3 paychecks since last update) will be around $37,000 once paycheck, rent, and reimbursement from GF all settles. Solid gain for 1.5 months given my income.

06/22/18: $72,953.75
07/27/18: $71,676.31
08/23/18: $65,034.83

04/24/19: $65,022.87
06/04/19: $63,056.67

Did a Memorial Day roadtrip. Bought some parts for project car and also finished buying all the parts for 100k mile maintenance on my daily. Expenses were up for wine/food/going out. Also bought camping gear for my upcoming July roadtrip. Quarterly taxes were also paid.

07/30/19: $65,345.01

Missed a month since I was on a 30 day roadtrip. Numbers look good since quarter taxes and un-invested IRA monies are part of it. Vacations are behind so I need to start catching up with a few financial loose ends.

Got back from my trip, and opened Personal Capital to see a net worth of $100,555.32. Wow.

The number isn't really real because I owe my wife for my half of July rent and our vacation expenses, but I still wanted to mark the moment. We'll see if I can get it back up again by 8/1.

For context: I'm 30 in a HCOL city. I'm married, but these are my own numbers since we keep our finances separate. Includes cash, retirement, and credit cards, which are used for normal expenses and paid off in full every month.

3/18: $48,533.91
4/18: $53,215.13 (+4,681.22 - extra paycheck)
5/18: $55,433.65 (+2,218.52)
6/18: $57,041.95 (+1,572.27)
7/18: $59,753.49 (+2,711.54)
8/18: $63,816.19 (+4,062.70)
9/18: $70,101.27 (+6,285.08 - extra paycheck)
10/18: $73,538.91 (+3,437.64)
11/18: $69,595.61 (-3,943.30)
12/18: $73,126.64 (+3,531.03)
1/19: $69,733.94 (-2,712.15)
2/19: $78,918.09 (+9,184.15 - extra paycheck)
3/19: $83,762.93 (+4,844.84)
4/19: $86,925.57 (+3,162.64)
5/19: $92,839.14 (+5,913.57)
6/19: $90,415.30 (-2,423.84)
7/19: $96,745.04 (+6,329.74)
8/19: $101,572.33 (+4,827.29)

I'm still above $100k! Very happy. I thought I wouldn't get there until the end of the year. I try to focus on my contributions, not count on the market, but it has really accelerated things as I get more and more invested. I'm going to consider myself graduated. Even if the market dips next month, it's a 3-paycheck month so my contributions will be higher to offset it.

April 2019: €10094.35
May 2019:  €11629.87
June 2019: €12728.63
July 2019:  €13021,33

Goals for 2019:
Savings: €5000
Investments: €10000

Good to see I'm still one digit up from last month even though we're still in the middle of a big renovation project and we've been on holiday. Next month won't look so good, I'll have to pay the biggest invoice of the project and there'll be tuition to pay as well. Goal of 15k this year still sounds do-able though.

Couldn't have done it without the support from MMM and you all.
Hopefully hit the 100k mark by the end of this year.

Odd how I come back 1 year from the last post.
I've been on autopilot, not doing anything special and here I am.

July 2019 $117,000

I suppose I'm not allowed to post in this thread next year lol.
Thanks for all the support.

You're so close that a 0.01% change in the market could push you over.

I genuinely couldn't figure out where this gain came from when I first saw it. $400 from the market, $250 from bonus churning, $200 in reimbursements, and the other $950 in regular old savings. All those goodies pushed my savings rate over 50% this month!

Most of increase is market and superannuation being paid.
Actually getting short on cash and not happy with certain decisions BUT I'm about to go on a lavish holiday I've already paid for and I got several pay increases this year, so what the hell am I complaining about?!
Onwards to 60k - goal is October.

5/1/2015   $4419.53
5/1/2016   15689.46 
5/1/2017   34125.20
5/1/2018   51663.60 

5/1/2019   64340.45
6/3/2019   64940.28
7/1/2019   70156.02
8/1/2019   74255.95


I'm a little bummed because I was SO CLOSE to $75k.  Still moving in a positive direction, but have a feeling that unless the market goes on an absolute tear the growth will be slowing somewhat.  A lot of my increases in net worth can be attributed to paying some stuff off.  OT has been cut, so available cash for that purpose has been reduced.
