                    401K          IRA          Total
Jan 2018:   $1,050        $1,230      $2,280
Jan 2019:   $6,800        $3,500      $10,300

Nov 2020:  $29,000       $7,500     $36,500

Hopefully I'll start contributing to my IRA in January. My discretionary spending has been a little out of hand.
Welp I sold my house and inherited some money so I'll have a large amount of cash until I decide to buy another home. Also I finally have my finances under control to where I can max out my roth.

7/1/2020: $46,295
8/1/2020: $49,461 (+3,166)
9/1/2020: $51,488 (+2,027)
10/1/2020: $52,753 (+1,265)
11/1/2020: $53,942 (+1,189)
12/1/2020: $56,152 (+2,210)
1/8/2021: $63512 (+7,360)

Extra money this month because of the stimulus (3k into a savings acct for roof replacement) but even without it we started contributing much more to our retirement accounts (adios credit cards) I dont know on our income level if we will ever be able to max them out but this is a good start. Hope to keep the same savings rate over the entire year, pay for our roof in cash, and tuck a little away for emergencies. Would love to reach 100k by 10/1/2021 although im not sure what to expect from this year market wise. I took a paycut and benefit cut in 2020, which i wont see any increase in pay until 2022. Just going to keep pushing forward. Happy New Year everyone!

Hit almost $70k despite spending almost $1k in the last month on backpacking gear, whoops!  Getting my partner set up and needed to upgrade to 2 person tent.
I will be selling a few things tho to make up for this.

My stocks have been doing great, particularly positions in GBTC, MSTR.  Don't want to rely on this tho (and yo- I am VERY diversified, don't worry) so trying to double down on saving $$ on groceries (see my groceries journal on this site) and bank bonuses again, had taken some time off.

Hi everyone. I'm not quite out of the 10k thread yet but just realised that all going well, I should be by next year. Posting here already as a bit of extra motivation.



P.S. 10k is the goal for my fledgling ETF account plus an ordinary savings account (emergency fund). Once I join here I shall make myself feel better by also adding in the amounts in various pensions. Last time I checked I think I had just passed the 30k mark. Must go on the hunt for passwords and login information again.

Tracking investments, emergency fund and additional pension investments (all to be used to retire together with SO!)
(not tracking company pension investments, house value and current accounts)

15 May 2020: EUR 17,034 (started tracking)
15 December 2020: EUR 23,325

13 January 2021: EUR 24,006
(2021 goal: EUR 35K)

With a market like this, the amounts just go up!
No salary increase this year due to COVID19, which is understandable in the business the company is in. Hope to still be able to get to my goal at the end of the year, just trying to put as much funds in my accounts as possible. With an extended lockdown here in Dutchieland a no-spending month will be easy!

Great to see the progress of all others. I do not see anybody whose amounts went down, so keep up the good work.

Just come to have a little vent. I'm very much in the looong middle ground of this race at 65k invested and I'm starting to get really itchy feet.

I dont even want to spend the money, I'm just grumpy about how long it is taking. It feels like the push forward to the next major milestone of 75k is a long way away.

Ok, rant over. Thanks everyone.

Thanks mate. Yeah you're right, I had similar feelings at around the 30-40k mark. Guess there's a reason that not many people do this!

I've been there @Stubblestache.  It took me about 12 years to reach 100k.  If your savings is pretty automated, maybe take some time away from watching the stache grow and focus on other things for a while.  There were a couple times in my journey where I had to do that because it seemed so agonizingly slow.   It's kind of like a bucket filling up drip by drip -- I figured if it's filling it doesn't need me there watching it three times a day haha.  You'll get there!

Thanks for the encouragement. I'm just being a moaner and impatient :D

I wish I could step away but I get paid variable amounts each month so have to be a bit more hands on with it all. That's a good suggestion though @Trifele , I'll have a think of how I could spend less time glaring at the 'stash and willing it to get bigger.

Yeah in that case (having to be hands on) it's trickier to find that balance.  But a lot of good Life happens during our road to FIRE . . . we just gotta figure out how to enjoy it while simultaneously accumulating

Hi guys,

My N/W grew by 2,069.06 to a new total of 42,771.24

Markets did most of the heavy lifting.  My investments were at -24% (compared to what I'd invested) 10 months ago, compared to over +30% today.  That's crazy, right?  :')

Still getting paid less with this current lockdown.  Still saving for my wedding.  Once things get back to normal and I'm married I really think my progress should skyrocket.

Hope you're all keeping well and staying safe....

Making steady progress, especially now that I have a 2nd part time job. I also did an uber frugal January, and it's amazing to see the progress that can be made just by cutting most spending outside of rent/food.

Great work @Mountain moustache --I agree that an uber frugal month really highlights how money can slip away when we are spending unnecessarily :)

@Serendip - give yourself credit, you are saving in spite of everything from kitchen renovations to helping out family, that's just life trying to interfere with your goals:).
You are almost 70% percent there.

@DieHard_772 it is thanks to you that I persevered past $50K you know that, don't you?:). This second $50K is so much easier mainly because I've reached all my other goals, but even I am surprised that it looks like I might hit that second $50K within 1.5yrs compared to 2.5yrs for the first round.
$100K seemed so far out of my reach that I almost didn't even try.
Perseverance is key.

01/29/21 - SEP + Roth $ 20,139.02 - Student loan balance $ 5,316.32 = $ 14,822.70

Five more months to go and the student loan should be gone!!! Then we will see how much I can really get my net worth increased for the rest of the year. Plan to put the $1000 student loan payment in my Roth for the second half of the year to max it out.

@Serendip - give yourself credit, you are saving in spite of everything from kitchen renovations to helping out family, that's just life trying to interfere with your goals:).
You are almost 70% percent there.


Thanks for the encouragement @Rosy --it's easy to look upwards rather than behind and be grateful for how far I've come... I'm re-reading a new book by William Irvine about stoicism which encourages looking at 'setbacks' as creative challenges and to welcome them as a good way to strengthen ones' grit and character :)
almost 70% there!

@Rosy you're doing fantastic!

@Imma - actually I benefitted from unexpected circumstances due to covid which helped me get ahead.

I do plan on spending a bit once I hit this $100K and stop saving for a month or two, to puff up my slush fund to live it up a little.   
Then it is on to a new investing/savings strategy with slightly lower contributions, 10-15% less.

I was seriously considering buying a small bungalow in the neighborhood last October.
The owner passed away and some guy bought it for $100K and flipped it. I'm guessing he put $35K max into the renovation. 
Sold for $210K three months later.

Quote
Crossed the 20k mark!
- CONGRATS, IMMA! -
It is always a high for me to hit another $10K - sometimes it seems like forever and other times I'm surprised I reached the next level.

@Serendip
I totally get that, sometimes you need to take a step back and appreciate all your accomplishments and you certainly have tons of them:).

Now that I am getting closer to that coveted $100K I am chomping at the bit to be done with it already:).
I am neither patient nor pragmatic and certainly not at all stoic.
My one saving grace in that dept is Mr. R. - he is Mr. Pragmatic himself. A conversation with him always soothes my frantic nerves and calms my financial fears. I tend to go into destructive overdrive when things don't progress in my favor.

I can see the sense in pragmatism at times, but stoicism remains a foreign, mystic conception that is way too far from who I am at my core.
I crave control.
In fact, stoicism brings out the rebel in me:), I can endure temporarily if I know there is an end to it but accepting stoicism is too much to ask of me.

Sure, a challenge or an obstacle 'might' build character but they can break you too. I am speaking from experience...
It can slow your progress to a skidding halt at a time when it is crucial that you meet your goals or reach a certain plateau.
Sometimes it takes decades to recover and we all have only one life to live.
Sure, overcoming challenges shapes your character, but sometimes it is a bitter victory or too high a price to pay.

Sometimes it is better to erupt and rebel and move heaven and earth than to practice stoic acceptance.

There is only a fine line between giving up and acceptance as in stoicism. That is a scary proposition.
To me being stoic is almost like shutting down all your other emotions, perhaps even the oomph you need to triumph over difficult circumstances. 
Of course, I might be totally missing the point:).

To me pragmatism is more helpful because whether we like it or not things do not always go our way so the better solution is to make the best out of any situation and remember to change yourself, a change in perspective, a change in plan or an AHA moment is way better than stoic acceptance.

Savings were not that great this month due to a larger scheduled expense. Next month will be the same. Crypto gains again made up for the shortfall in savings. I can't wait for summer so I can sell off part of the crypto position without incuring capital gains taxes.

Jan 2021$57,339.00$89,777.45

Overall, feeling pretty good about 2021. Positions took a little dip due to drop in the market right at the end of January, but I'm okay with it since I have $4000 auto invested at the beginning of Feb. This month's savings rate was 65% (I count only money invested in the market).

Also, somehow this month was ridiculously cheap compared to normal.. .my wife and I spent only $1.9k, compared to a more typical $2.8k. We did buy a lot of meat in December that made that month expensive but allowed us to eat out of the freezer in January, but still... our cutting down on convenience food, alcohol, and discretionary spending really made quite a big difference.

Tracking investments, emergency fund and additional pension investments (all to be used to retire together with SO!)
(not tracking company pension investments, house value and current accounts)

15 May 2020: EUR 17,034 (started tracking)
15 December 2020: EUR 23,325

31 January 2021: EUR 24,040
(2021 goal: EUR 35K)

Will start tracking at end of month from now.
@Imma : crossing the 20K is huge. Now up to 30 (I'm working towards the same). Baby steps..... baby steps......

We're first fattening our combined emergency fund (not included in this amount). So 2nd half of the year will hopefully be more in investments, since I'm expecting a few refunds (tax refund, government refund and healthcare refund) around that time.

On to February, with only small expenses. DD's birthday will be celebrated with only a few friends, so no big party here. And she wants to have sports gear as a present (which we would have bought anyway, but now she gets to choose a little more expensive brand....).

Hey all!

I find motivating to see how great is in general people doing, I think I'll start reporting as well. I started tracking my NW Jul'20. I bought a property on Jan'20, when fires in Australia were the worst thing that had happened in a very long time.

Anyway, here go the numbers: the column in the right does not consider my house - as asset, mortgage also excluded -, the left does include both. I do have accounts in several currencies but everything is consolidated in EUR:

              NW   Liquid NW
Jul-20   47,328    19,245
Aug-20   49,579    21,248
Sep-20   52,077    23,491
Oct-20   55,935    27,097
Nov-20   58,368    29,322
Dec-20   60,712    31,332
Jan-21   63,592    33,828

Goal for 2021: take the right column to 50k!

@Serendip ..

There is only a fine line between giving up and acceptance as in stoicism. That is a scary proposition.
To me being stoic is almost like shutting down all your other emotions, perhaps even the oomph you need to triumph over difficult circumstances. 
Of course, I might be totally missing the point:).

To me pragmatism is more helpful because whether we like it or not things do not always go our way so the better solution is to make the best out of any situation and remember to change yourself, a change in perspective, a change in plan or an AHA moment is way better than stoic acceptance.

Thanks for offering this reflection of yours @Rosy - it was interesting to mull upon.
I don't interpret stoicism as encouraging a shut-down of emotions but that might be because the contemporary view of the philosophy seems quite different than the roots. The exercises which encourage growth and practicing hardiness have been guiding lights for me these past years..

 I actually see your definition of pragmatism as quite close to my interpreted definition of stoicism!
ha..funny how that works :)

11/28/20 - $70,737
12/28/20 - $72,895
1/28/21 - $79,429 +$6,534

Yee haw, we are making great progress.  In fact, the total has already grown to over $81k.  We have benefitted from a lot of income coming into me, some of it pre-payments from students, which goes directly into my savings for monthly use throughout the year (Admittedly, this isn't the same as long-term savings, but very often I'm able to divert this money into other savings buckets).

In addition to a windfall from my teaching studio, our higher 30% savings rate is awesome!

Feeling great, enjoying the progress.

Side note: The money I am tracking here is our investments and savings.  It doesn't include checking accounts or money set aside for taxes.  When you add that in, we are over $90k.  Our grand total should be reaching six figures soon!!

Yee haw!

Very happy to see my net worth increase at all in January, due to some high expenses this past month. I refinanced my home in January with 15 yr at 1.75% and installed an electric pedal assist motor onto my bike so that I can now perform all errands in town without a car and not have to worry about an increase in time due to biking. I do not see any foreseeable expenses and expect a healthy savings rate in the coming months! Also, I am not tracking equity in my house which would be approximately 40-45k. Great to see everyone progressing!

My stash has reached $79,000 (assuming a 20% loss on whatever gets pulled out of my 401k), which is larger than my remaining mortgage and student loan balances combined. Feels good.
