A bit of an underwhelming update but at least it's going up. I was hoping to get over 80k but my super payment is not yet through. I have made a plan to get to 200k before an age milestone. Hopefully I can stick to it. Oscillating between splurge and reduced spend during the lockdown.

I've graduated from NW 1MM but most of my nw is tied up in real estate, and who really knows what that stuff is worth in this era.
I'm going to use this thread to hold my post-tax account accountable.

Shortened my list of months this time and finally posting for May. Back to numbers from the peak before the crash. Problem is...with the thousands of contributions I've made since then I would have been into the 90's by now. wahhhhhhhh.

January 2020: 69,751
February 2020: 76,776
March 2020: $81,737
April 2020: Scary
May 2020: 81,624

I haven't looked at any of my accounts, including checking, for nearly a month. Still making progress, slow and steady wins the race. I've been working a lot, and not going out much except to support a local restaurant that I like. I'm still "eating out" with really large tips to help keep them afloat and I'm glad that my spending there is helping. Everything else has been pretty much Nintendo Switch and Netflix with some stationary biking thrown in while I'm not working.

Awesome progress on the networth front @lexde.  Props to you on supporting local business. My wife and I have been doing the same, and it feels good.  I'm inspired by your post to keep giving :)

Not too happy with my savings discipline but I've reached 80k for the first time! Super payments have not arrived yet, so I'm on track for a big jump at June 1 no matter what.
Who knows, I might break 90k for end of financial year if the market holds. I have to keep making efforts and the dollars will take care of themselves.

In 2016, I was at approximately -$5K with $25K in debt (credit card and student loan) and $20K in a Roth IRA.

Happy to say that despite recent markets, I am now at a net worth of $75,831 with around $8K of student loan debt.

I was of course about $10K up before the pandemic hit, but still hoping to get to 100K by the end of the year!

Thanks for everyone here for the inspiration. I was *so close* to moving up to the next thread, but then pandemic. Instead of getting discouraged, I threw some money in my investments to take advantage of the low prices. Working on small things to try to make the jump by the end of the year.

*been out of work 2 months (since Mar 14th).. haven't had to use much of my Emerg Fund due to gov't coverage (I live in Canada and we've had pretty good support). I should be able to return to work part-time within the next month so hopefully can start saving again soon. I actually have saved a good portion of the benefit payments from each month to make sure mortgage payments are covered for the next three/four months without having to worry about my work levels. Very thankful.

I’m now $10,068.08 away from graduating this thread. Looks like this might happen in mid-July if things keep up, but we’ll see.

I’m just keeping my head down, saving as much money as I can, and stockpiling cash while maintaining my retirement contributions. I’m up to 7 months of expenses. Not enough, right now. I’m so thankful I am still employed and have a paid-off car. The only things that I have to spend money on are the essentials. I know so many others are not as fortunate.

*still off work so am pretty happy that I haven't decimated savings. Haven't worked since mid-March and will be returning part-time in the middle of June..

I'm happy for you returning to work etc, @Serendip .  Sounds like you are doing well at lining up circumstances to keep up the progress. Way to go

Hey @okcisok I love that part: "instead of getting discouraged," and then you took advantage of low prices.  that's the key, isn't it?  Staying positive.
Things will always be shifting, but if we keep a positive mindset through it all, we are likely to get out of it even better off :)

Personal update: we are making progress to our $100k goal :)

To make it as easy as possible, I am going to track all of our accounts (including checking/liquid money used for expenses)

5/27/20 -  $71,051   

On your marks, get set... Go!

Next months are going to be harder as the stock market probably will not keep that pace up. And the pay cuts are coming.

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

$ 64,000 Apr 2020 - incl $1200 stimulus pmt
$ 67,000 May 2020 - incl $350 stimulus pmt
Projected for June ~ $69,8K
Fingers crossed I'll hit $70K:) by EOM June.

I did it - I'll hit $70K by EOM June - that means $20K savings in 6 months. I am surprised to see it really happened.
YAY:)

Next goal hit $80K by EOM October - we'll see - it all seems surreal compared to where I was in 2015.

@DieHard_772 - how is it that I can never quite catch up with you?:) JK - Nice to see you are still hanging in there.

How are people generally playing?  I am going to leave out home value and debt and only report the total of cash and investment value.  This isn't my net worth, just what I consider our 'stache'.  I am including my emergency fund and checking account. Are others including that or are more people reporting a more complete networth value where they are subtracting debt and adding in value for less liquid assets, like a home?

I am doing full net worth (house - mortgage, cars, cash, investments, student loans, etc.), but I think people are doing all different things.

For me, it's a savings goal, so I'm counting my savings account (I never keep a lot of money in checking) + pre-tax individual retirement investment account + post-tax investment account.

I am not including a pretty secure pension. My company has recently changed the retirement scheme so from 2020 I am no longer paying into a defined benefit pension scheme but instead have a retirement investment account much like my own pre-tax retirement account (I am not in the US, things are different here). I am considering adding this money to my monthly savings goal but I haven't done that yet. I don't include my home value or mortgage because home value is just a wild guess. I'm in a really overheated market and bought at the right time (pure luck) so the money we have in the home would be the majority of our net worth, but if the market would collapse due to Covid-19 all that fictional wealth would be gone. I also don't include my student loan because it's a small 0% interest loan from the government with income-based repayment. At this point I have like 100 months of €45/month payments left and it's just so insignificant that I honestly can't be bothered to check the remaining balance every month.

Hey @Sanitary Engineer,
We don't have home asset/mortgage to factor in.  Also, as I am aiming to get to $100k as quickly as possible, I am including everything,
including liquid cash that fluctuates with spending. I agree with what @Optimizer, we may be all handling the game our own way.  This is how I'm doing it. Cheers

Got a new (to me) road bike, barefoot shoes that are office compatible and therefore expensive to hopefully get rid of constant shin splints and a speeding ticket. Next month should be back to usual spending levels and a higher savings rate. Currently in the process of selling my motorbike to boost savings, as I don't use it as often any more, but interest is very limited (probably due to decreased spending due to the coronavirus).

WOW! I was expecting a jump but not that big. Combination of getting paid monthly 401k equivalent, market rebound and chucking a bundle into stocks with my partner. Not 100% happy with spending yet, but at +6k in 15 days I really can't complain. Target is still >90k at EOFY.

Ps: since someone asked, I do total net worth. I rent and have no debt, so I just add up all my assets from most to least liquid. I exclude my spouse as we keep finances separated.

We got here sooner than I expected. 58 months ago I started earning a real paycheck; 35 months ago I found MMM and started tracking (see above). I bet the second half of this race goes faster than that!

ETA: This is my full net worth. I have no debt; $43k is in investments and $7k is in cash, between the emergency fund and just the money that gets spent every month.

Hi everyone, I just graduated for the 10k thread. There I was just counting my invested cash as I was getting started. For this one I might include pension value and company shares as they'd be part of my stache. I'll leave my home and cash etc for my annual net worth tracking I think, want to keep it simple for monthly updating. Will probably mean I start over 50k but that's ok :)

Another good month. my net worth finally seems like it is starting to grow at a decent pace and the best part is know that it will get even better through time!

@Sanitary Engineer I count all my saving/checking, house, investments, mortgage, and student loans toward my net worth. I do not include things like cars(completely paid off, but would include the debt on them if I had any) or other personal items. Just my way of figuring net worth.

@Gingersnaps and @TyGuy Welcome to this thread!

Thanks for the encouragement @DieHard_772 @TyGuy !

Had to replace the joint car for another one due to problems in it's electronics, almost lasted five years. The replacement was €3500, so my half of that almost wiped out my vacation pay. Currently checking if our holiday plans are still viable: after thinking for months it would by a certain no-go, the region seems to be opening up next week. Possibly some time off in july then, almost surreal.

Hi everyone! Thrilled to be joining you today from the 10k thread.

I graduated from law school 6 years ago with around $225,000 in debt and no assets to speak of other than a few thousand bucks in a Roth IRA. For various reasons, I made very little progress during my first three years out of law school -- then, in 2017, I started working at a firm and tracking my numbers, starting at approximately $198k in the hole. Since then, I have paid off a decent chunk of the debt, but I've prioritized saving in my tax-advantaged retirement accounts first. I also bought a house. Today, I still have $130k of student loans, but I also have $107k in retirement accounts, plus home equity and an emergency fund. In total, my net worth is:

$19,606.73

Yay @mckaylabaloney it's so great to see more 10k graduates here! Like @LittleWanderer I believe - I'm not at my highest net worth ever, but after today's gains my investments are at it's highest ever.

I haven't seen @Manchester and @Hirondelle for a while I think, how are you guys doing?
