January update: $96,301.56

Some good investment returns last month :). Might be able to reach 100k at the end of the month. Found out my job is secure until the end of June, so it seems very likely by the end of February.


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!

December 1st update: $86,963.15

I received no pay over the summer, but travelled to England and Italy. I also treated myself to a new MacBook for work/pleasure.

With the threat of layoffs/strikes due to our new anti-education government, I will be slowing down my spending drastically. I know I'd be a lot closer to my $100,000 goal if I hadn't spent money on my trip/new technology, but you got to live a little.

I figure I will reach $100,000 by the end of February if my job remains stable.

All numbers are for joint net worth between my SO and I.

9/1/2018    $ 10,182.02
10/1/2018    $ 14,632.57
11/1/2018    $ 16,671.27
12/1/2018    $ 23,468.48
1/1/2019    $ 30,900.13
2/1/2019    $ 34,820.54
3/1/2019    $ 40,959.03
4/1/2019    $ 48,963.23
5/1/2019    $ 49,324.37
6/1/2019     $ 54,756.42
7/1/2019    $ 62,703.77
8/1/2019    $ 68,173.37
9/1/2019    $ 71,590.05
10/1/2019    $ 74,831.89
11/1/2019    $ 80,846.08
12/1/2019    $ 85,705.97
1/1/2020    $ 94,851.23

My NW made up about 80%, his about 20%. With a pay raise, a lean spending trend, and hopeful continued good market performance, we should hit 100k - and graduate this thread - before Feb 1.

15 January 2020 - 69,388
1 February 2020 - 74,415

A nice big jump! I expected this from quarterly 401k and dividends but maybe not as big. Very pleasant although I could have done even better. Objective is now to be over 90k before middle of the year unless the market tanks. If I limit going out and cycle to work, very do able.

A much smaller increase this month than prior ones, but still upward movement so can't complain :) I'm hoping next month is more like my usual months and I can crossover to the $40ks

This was kind of a four-paycheck month for me; a three-paycheck month, plus the (late) payment for some additional work I did last year. As a result, I saved more money than I usually make in a month and half-funded my Roth already.

My spending was also very low. I haven't eaten out once since the holidays ended.

Hi all,

joining the race now, even though NW crossed 10k in November 2019 already (it had already been 10k in early 2018, but then a 2-month trip before starting full-time work, furnishing the new appartment, buying a car that was needed for work etc. happened and basically put me back in the negative). I'm hoping for this to keep me accountable and motivate me to stay frugal in those instances where laziness or comfort might lead to just throwing money at a problem instead of solving it myself.

Goal for the year is to reach 25k. Here are my 2019 numbers:

Assets:
01/01/2019:   3.914,63 €
01/02/2019:   4.106,10 € (+   101,47 €)
01/03/2019:   4.359,75 € (+   343,65 €)
01/04/2019:   4.959,75 € (+   599,82 €)

01/07/2019:   8.069,41 € (+   617,26 €)
01/08/2019:   8.949,17 € (+   880,03 €)
01/09/2019: 11.310,21 € (+2.361,04 €)
01/10/2019: 10.795,59 € (-    514,62 €)
01/11/2019: 11.426,98 € (+   631,39 €)
01/12/2019: 12.123,70 € (+   696,72 €)
01/01/2020: 12.979,27 € (+   855,57 €)
01/02/2020: 14.363,54 € (+1.384,27 €)

Debts:
01/01/2019: 4.024,10 €
01/02/2019: 3.746,69 € (-277,41 €)

01/01/2020:       0,00 €  (-350,00 €)
01/02/2020:       0,00 €  (-    0,00 €)

I do not include my savings to buy expensive "fun items" like new cellphone, electronics etc. as it is not very big. My checking account is also not included as it has money I will likely spend this month. Goal for 2020 is to make it to $75K.

Net worth:
2017:
Dec2017:$7800
2018
Apr2018:$13,200
Aug2018:$22,800
Sep2018: $23,645
Oct2018: $23,658
Nov2018: $23,948 (+$290)
Dec2018: $23,960 (+12)
2019
Jan2019: $27,100 (+3140)
Feb2019: $29,443 (+2343)
Mar2019: $31,603 (+2160)
Apr2019: $33,959 (+2356)
May2019: $33,933 (-$26)
Jun2019: $37,928 (+3995)
Jul2019: $39,736 (+1808)
Aug2019: $39,918 (+182)
Sep2019: $34,179 (-5739)
Oct2019: $38,091 (+3912)
Nov2019: $39,867 (+1776)
Dec2019: $43836 (+$3968)
2020
Jan2020:$ 45,839  (+2003)-Pretty average month for me, I spent a little more than usual, but it doesn't effect my savings rate. It looks like a lot of people are nearing the 100k mark. I hope you make it soon!

Feb 1st 2020 Update:$101,272.15.  WOOT!!

Figure I'll stick around for another month to ensure that I stay over the goal :) This includes $17,405.32 in pension contributions that are hard to value... but since I'm early in my career, if I were to quit today, I'd get back the value of my contributions... so it's worth at least that.

Also includes $4000 in held pay that I'm counting. Essentially, it's pay that I've earned but my district holds onto it until the summer as they think they are helping us budget for the summer when we receive no pay (in reality, I'd much rather have the money up front and earn interest, but sadly that's not an option in this district).

January update: $96,301.56

Some good investment returns last month :). Might be able to reach 100k at the end of the month. Found out my job is secure until the end of June, so it seems very likely by the end of February.


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!

December 1st update: $86,963.15

I received no pay over the summer, but travelled to England and Italy. I also treated myself to a new MacBook for work/pleasure.

With the threat of layoffs/strikes due to our new anti-education government, I will be slowing down my spending drastically. I know I'd be a lot closer to my $100,000 goal if I hadn't spent money on my trip/new technology, but you got to live a little.

I figure I will reach $100,000 by the end of February if my job remains stable.

After last update on the 26th, I received a mini-windfall, reponsible for 70% of reported NW rise. I'll get something of a wage increase, but am not sure how high it'll be yet. Also did some extra side-work, will receive a bigger check than usual from them next month. If all falls my way this year, I might even make 100k, but that is a 1% scenario. Realistically, I'll have to be very content with 90k in december.

I only have another ~15k in liabilities. I hope to see faster growth in the next year or two.

2-02-20     14991  57k

I'm really upset that I didn't hit 15k with the minor dip in the market. So close... I'll be nearing 16k by the end of the month, though.

01/01/2020: €14.500 Goal

I didn't update this at the start of the year. However:

01/01/2020: € 13.900 This was lower than the goal, because I hadn't considered that I would have to pay for 2020 health insurance before the beginning of the new year. Overall super happy, because this was more than I expected to have.

Goal 01/01/2021: €27.500 Excluding sinking funds for holidays and health insurance, including student loan at 0.01% interest. This is starting off well, because I got a small raise at work.

01/02/2020: €15.260 Very frugal month :D

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.

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
3/31/2019 - $67,340
4/30/2019 - $70,674
5/31/2019 - $69,853
6/30/2019 - $75,757
7/31/2019 - $78,206
8/31/2019 - $83,589
9/30/2019 - $83,292
10/31/2019 - $87,539
11/30/2019 - $98,502
12/31/2019 - $96,225
1/1/2020 - $96,048

January Notes

Ehhhhh.... Painful month. For starters there was a substantial goof-up on my check (which still isn't fully resolved). So that is $1,400 of missing money this month. Also had almost $3K in medical expenses and some general dumb spendypants-ness, so yeah awful month.

On a positive note, I have received my February pay and I am above $100K, but no graduating for me just yet as I would like to see how the month shakes out. I am laser-focused on curbing controllable spending this month and there is an impending tax refund as well as the hopeful resolution of my payroll woes so as long as the market holds up I should be able to get there this month.

July 12, 2019: $66,565
Aug 1, 2019: $68,207 (+2.47%, +$1,642)
Aug 29, 2019: $69,931 (+2.53%, +$1,724)
Sept 29, 2019: $71,138 (+1.73%, +$1,207)
Oct 31, 2019: $71,517 (+0.53%, +$379)
Nov 29, 2019: $73,138 (+2.27%, +$1,621)
Jan 01, 2020: $74,276 (+1.56%, +$1,138)
Feb 06, 2020: $73,621 (-0.88%, -$655)

It was a painful month with a stunning 1% SR :D I had the following special expenses: quarterly public transport ticket, utilization cost in advance for 2020, some gifts, charity, etc. The bottom line is that having paid these stuff in advance makes me able to reach a 65-70% SR in the next 11 months. I hope my investments will have a better performance, and maybe my domain business takes off this year.

All numbers are for joint net worth between my SO and I.

9/1/2018    $ 10,182.02
10/1/2018    $ 14,632.57
11/1/2018    $ 16,671.27
12/1/2018    $ 23,468.48
1/1/2019    $ 30,900.13
2/1/2019    $ 34,820.54
3/1/2019    $ 40,959.03
4/1/2019    $ 48,963.23
5/1/2019    $ 49,324.37

12/1/2019    $ 85,705.97
1/1/2020    $ 94,851.23

My NW made up about 80%, his about 20%. With a pay raise, a lean spending trend, and hopeful continued good market performance, we should hit 100k - and graduate this thread - before Feb 1.

2/1/2020    $ 100,928.81

A little late to report here but I am nonetheless proud to day that we have graduated this thread!!!!!! I am confident that this will stick, so I'll see you all in the next one.

It's not the first of the month yet, but I *think* that between an old IRA rolling over to my TSP, pretty good gains in the last two weeks, and making a couple of big payments, I should be just over the $100k mark.  I guess technically I'm already there, but I've never counted that old IRA in my NW calculations.  Unless the market seriously takes a crap before March I should be graduating soon.

Market rally is still going, and I have been relatively good, except for booze and eating out. Changing jobs with a small pay rise and having some leave paid out when I switch should make a pretty big jump in there.
It's always hard to predict but I'm starting to hope I will graduate before July first? That would be crazy.

02/16/2020: $80,269.73 (+$2,956.57)

Back to standard growth after a great saving month in January. I can expect between $4,250.00-$4,750.00 in growth each month for now.
If this growth keeps up then I am looking at mid-June for graduation. July 1 2020 to be safe, barring any funky market activity.

Not posted on here for a few months, but still been plodding on.

Here are some of my recent figures:

November: £25,364.54

December:£28,281.07

January:£28,407.70

February: £30,286.23

I'm finally past the £30k mark which is brilliant.  It's taking me an average of 7.5 months to increase my N/W by £10k, which implies I'll still be in this thread for over another 4 years. 

I have been spending a lot on my wedding, which hasn't helped speed along with proceedings, and once that's out of the way I'll be ramping up my investments even more so.  My salary is going to increase by roughly £10k pa (before taxes) in April, which will also contribute.  I've been working more on my matched betting side hustle which is paying dividends.

I've also had a new business idea I'm interested in trying out, so I'm going to give that some thought this week, but might contribute some money towards it.

Hope you're all hitting your targets and steering clear of COVID19. :')

@Manchester you're doing really great! Especially if this includes wedding spending. And congrats on the big raise!

I started a thread about owning a business last year. My business isn't making me rich yet but I'm earning some money and I'm learning a lot and meeting new people. I'm really glad I did it.

I started a thread about owning a business last year. My business isn't making me rich yet but I'm earning some money and I'm learning a lot and meeting new people. I'm really glad I did it.

Thanks, and yes, the numbers include my wedding spending (which is a lot more than I'd like it to be).  We're doing certain things to reduce costs, but the wedding is quite a big deal to both our families.  Fortunately, we're expecting quite a bit of money back in the form of gifts on the day, so I'm hoping it gives me a big bump around August. 

I'll have to take a look at that thread, I've not seen it so far but would love to have a look.  I'm one of those people who has a new business idea every other day.  I've got one I'm working on at the moment, but I'm just hoping one day I come up with something that takes me from a fairly high earner to a rediculous salary like some people on this forum seem to earn.  We keep plodding onwards! :)

I'm in:) Nice to see some familiar faces too - good going everybody!

The first goal was $50K by Dec 31, 2019.
I projected it would take me two and a half years (30 mo) but it took me only 26 months - pushing real hard.
During that time other expenditures kept me scrambling, like two new (to us) cars $25K, two overseas trips $13K (two and three months each), paid off a loan early with $4K cash, elective surgery $7K and an interfering jewelry habit - yeah well, I'm not exactly a poster child mushtashian:).

New goal: $100K by Dec 31, 2021

Savings history:
$  4,588 June 2017
$ 10,117 Dec 2017

$ 10,715 Jan 2018
$ 31,034 Dec 2018

$ 31,094 Jan 2019
$ 50,000 Dec 2019

$ 53,000 Jan 2020
$ 56,000 Feb 2020

My projection is $60K by April 2020 - by then I intend to revisit my strategy.
My fixed goal is to reach at least $70K minimum by EOY 2020, preferably $75K.
We'll see how it all goes - 2020 is shaping up to potentially be a very interesting year in many aspects.

Whomp-whomp.  First time going down in a while, but it's only due to the market.  I'm just kind of excited to have enough money invested to feel the market fluctuations now!  My 401K is down over $2K.  So...yay?  Haha.

02/28/2020: $77,245.88 (-$3,023.85)

The market swept about $5k of my net worth over the last two weeks. No big deal. Still maxing 401(k) and contributing to my IRA/HSA as planned. I did sweep a little extra cash into my HYSA because it’s a little lower than I’d like it to be, but other than that I’m just staying the course and not thinking about the market much.

SO and I are eating a lot more healthy food, more plant-based, and spending less on restaurants. It’s been a lifesaver on the wallet!

Got a big tax refund, Corona virus has tanked the market, and I paid a bunch in closing costs to refi my house. Moving forward I'll be saving a bunch on interest every month. I'm surprised to see things still going up this month, all things considered.

End of February update:

£5012 in emergency fund
£3853 extra money, ready to be invested
£37208 in tax efficient investment account

£3825 in SIPP

February 29th 2020: £54 592 ---   -1474


Not too bad yet. My monthly contribution was £2000, so total current 'losses' around £3500. Surprised that it's still better than my net worth at the New Year!

Massive hit from the correction, but overall travelling well. I bought some stocks on sale and will continue to invest as much as possible over the next month.
I guess it's a more realistic assessment of my NW anyway as it had been growing very fast.
