* not even back to where I was 6 months ago. What a strange year!
(*but I know we have also been lucky in some regards)

I am glad that these savings haven't been decimated with living costs. I've had no work for many months but even before that I had been sick following overseas travel so didn't really work in February either. It's been almost 5 months off of work..unreal. Starting back today, for two days/week. Won't be much but it's a start.

Should be a quiet summer. Will try to keep the cost of living low as the garden and CSA will be producing..

Monthly Update:

Net Worth (minus house equity) increased £1,257.21 to £32,854.38 which is my new highest N/W to date.

All gains completely down to the market recovering.  I've been investing my usual amounts into my pension and ISA, but due to ongoing pandemic, my earnings are quite a bit lower than normal.  After investments and regular monthly bills, I'm not making any real progress.  But if I come out of this period with a higher NW than before I'll be very happy.

An ambitious aim is to reach £40k by December 31st.

Graphs and visual data attached.

American Funds: $10,824
Robinhood: $18,200 (but fluctuating +/500 these days)
Edward Jones: $28,070
House equity: $58,000

Mortgage balance: $97,000

Total: ~$17,000

Kinda anxious to pay down the mortgage, especially since even more money can flow into investments that way. Calculations seem to indicate that throwing my stocks into the mortgage after I reach that level will net me more in the long term than paying it down at my current monthly rate of $1170 at 4.5% interest. I should probably redo those calculations under a refinancing scenario though.

If you have $58,000 in house equity and a mortgage of $97,000, then I assume your house is currently valued at $155,000. Along with your other assets of $57,094 that puts your total assets at $212,094. Less the mortgage of $97,000 is actually a net worth of $115,094. I'm sure you have a reason to list it the way you do, but i'm not sure what it is because as it's stated you're double discounting yourself with that mortgage. Care to elaborate? :)

Is 4.5% a normal rate in the USA? 

Seems astronomically high to me (in Britain).  Mine is at 1.8% which is high (and will hopefully be re-negotiated and reduced next September).

It's a bit higher than current rates. I refinanced at 3.0% with a 30 year fixed rate mortgage a few months ago.

30 year fixed rates seem really risky for both banks and homeowners.  In the UK we usually fix the rate for 2/3 years before refinancing (or going onto a 'variable' rate, which are usually the national interest rate + x%).  Surprised there isn't a bank in America offering something similar, but then again, what do I know. :')

We have that.  It's called an ARM mortgage.  It's one of the things that caused a lot of problems in 2008/2009.

I've always heard people say to avoid variable rate mortgages because they are risky. With a fixed rate you know exactly what you will need to pay every month for the rest of the loan. If interest rates were really high right now, I might consider a variable rate. Right now though, with rates as low as they are, I was more than happy to to lock in 3% for the next 30 years.

In the Netherlands fixed rates are very common, due to mortgage lending rules. If you have a variable rate, the mortgage lender needs to calculate affordability based on a fictional interest % , way higher than the current rates. If you get a 10+ years fixed rate the lender can calculate the affordability based on the real payment (and the customer gets the highest possible loan). We are 5 years into a 10-year fixed rate of 2,25% which seemed extremely low at that time. When the interest rates started to get really low, banks stopped offering 20 and 30-year terms. I think from a financial point of view, variable is the cheapest loan you can get (Euribor + a set percentage) so I think we'll switch to that after this fixed term is over, unless we could fix long-term at something lower than 3%-ish.

Feb 24,893
Mar 23,454
April 28,515
May 34,893
June 37,667... can't belive it just keeps climbing with that pace. 375€ of that was re-imbursement for cancelled flights due to the pandemic. Still waiting for ~150€ for the return flight.

Approx. 11k in illiquid items and my half of our car.
This month is awesome, but only temporarily, since the vacation time bonus is coming due, but we have nowhere to go. So yeah I will probably block that for a brighter future.

15k+ in 6 months during a pandemic. I am blessed and feel the need to return that blessing soon.

Forgot my $1k emergency fund account in May. Movement is a bit of debt pay-down and a smaller than normal year-end bonus. 401k/Pension were pretty flat this month.

Just barely missed 20k for the first time. Still didn't manage to find a buyer for my old motorbike, but it has inspired me to list a bunch of old junk on Ebay which netted ~300 € and cleared out the small basement a bit. Overall low spend month and investments also did ok. Wouldn't complain if it keeps going up like this.

Also my job just became a lot more secure/demanding suddenly. This also provides lots of upside potential as well though. A coworker quit yesterday to move to another larger company and I'm supposed to take over most of his responsibilities. I'm still early in my career and not really qualified for these tasks yet to be honest, so the learning curve in the next months should be pretty steep which I view as a plus. Also we're a small firm and him leaving frees up a lot of budget which I will use to try and negotiate a raise along with the additional responsibilities.

Incredibly, despite everything, I just about reached my mid-year goal of 15k! So I'm on track for 20k by the end of the year. And that was an aspirational goal that I never expected to reach. Who knows what the second half of this year will bring but so far it's (financially) going well.

Mostly just keepin' on. Unusual spending this month, most of which will be reimbursed, but already offset by finally  getting my stimulus check. My roommates plan to move out, and I just re-reached 10% of my minimum FI # taking that into account. Hoping to still scrape a 50% savings rate for the year.

Here we are:

May 2020: EUR 17,034
Jun 2020: EUR 18,160

Next months will be a little slower with holiday time coming up and one child starting a new school, so she will need some supplies (Chromebook etc....).

Always try to negotiate a raise with the additional work and responsibilities. I did so in January (finally, after 2-3 years in my new role) and succeeded. That is why my 20% COVID payroll cut did not hurt that much!

6/1/2020: $19,606.73
7/1/2020: $26,480.37

I realized this month that my automated monthly payments -- my minimum student loan principal payment, my mortgage principal payment, and my regular monthly contributions to my 401k and HSA -- increase my net worth by more than $4000 every month (well, unless my investment contributions lose value in the market, but that's temporary), even if I don't manage to save another cent. That's a really good feeling!

Really looking forward to seeing $75K on my balance sheet next month - a new record:) and a major stepping stone toward that coveted $100K.
Fingers crossed...

There is no telling how this pandemic might impact our lives - we've been fortunate so far to experience no financial impact.

Really just getting started here- 38, I did not start saving for retirement until last Oct.

Oct 2019- $1000
Nov 2019- $2340
Dec 2019- $2779
Jan 2020- $5658
Feb 2020- $5539
Mar 2020- $5024
Apr 2020- $5444
May 2020- $8302  (wherein I finally got some of unemployment)
June 2020- $20864 (wherein I got more unemployment plus the EIDL)

I got my COL down a bit despite buying a car in May (moved to bf's house in suburbs) and am hoping to stash as much of PUA/EIDL (now that I got them!  I swear it was a full time job calling and researching everything) as possible eventually.  It seems the best way tho is not to actually put it in until end of year and in the meantime earn bank bonuses and such.  My work has been slowly reopening but it will be slow, but I will start dialing up the hustle after July and the $600/weekly ends.

In June this includes opening a SEP IRA which it wasn't too late for with >$5k.  I have hedged 20% of my portfolio rn in commodities (mostly gold/silver).  Others is a split of 50% stock etfs (half foreign half domestic) and cash waiting to be deployed during the next downturn.

I also have another $5k in an investment due in 1.5 months, should make $130 or so off of it in addition to 5k MR points (and signup bonus of 10k points) which are already in my account and will eventually get cashed to my Schwab account @ 1.25 cents/point

I just backfilled my NW in the spreadsheet to January 2019 and converted my NW in € to $ using today's exchange rate. That might misrepresent past NW numbers in $, but provides better comparability to the progress of others in the spread sheet I guess.

I hope SR will be great during whole summer and my side business will recover (no domain sales during last 3 months).

I graduated from the 10k thread last month, but that was just for my investment account after discovering FIRE. So for this thread I figured I should add up everything towards my FI goal - investments, shares and pensions, but it does mean I've leapt ahead rather!

01/07/2020 - £75,523.86

This does include 1 pension that's very out of date, hopefully will have an update next month. Also I'm not including house, cars and cash as I'll keep them for an end of the year net worth update

It has been so long since I've been on these forums! Need to get my focus back, so good to see so many people doing so well :D

I'd love to join the race too please. I always keep three months in cash as an emergency, so I guess all my numbers below should really include that, but for simplicity I'll just put the total invested amount in:

July 2018: £20,385
October 2018: £24,504
January 2019: £25, 295
April 2019: £33,844
July 2019: £38,667
October 2019: £38,588
January 2020: £43,260
April  2020:  £38,094
July 2020: £49,062.35

BIG HALFWAY POINT COMING! (assuming markets don't tank)

PTF and to join you soon.

I am on my way to 100k, but I am missing a good overview... shame on me.
I also more or less lost a decade, but that is snow from yesterday, as we say in Germany :-D

20 Dec 18 - 37,800
Mid March 2019 - 45,815
20 June 2019 - 50,890
Mid September 2019 - 57,608
15 December 2019 - 65,794
1 April 2020 - 71,465
15 May 2020 - 80,396
15 June 2020 - 85,996
1 July 2020 - 89,300
15 July 2020 - 90,232

Slightly underwhelming update BUT
Mid month updates are usually less big due to how my 401k gets paid
I am still waiting on EOFY dividends
Basically still on track for my plan, hoping to graduate by 1st September

Here’s a visual of my progress from September 2016 (discovering MMM to today) for anyone that likes data/charts:




Keep being awesome! :-)
