01/30/2018 - 166,995.57

02/28/2018 - 164,404.90 - Ouch, first month that ended lower than it started.  Never had the losses exceed my ongoing contributions before.  So... yay?

It is an 'ouch' to write a negative number -- I did it this month too.  But I think this is definitely a 'yay' Raenia -- it means the stash is reaching the point where market fluctuations are sometimes greater than your contributions.  Your money is starting to work harder than you can.  (If you look at the lower $ threads, most of those folks did not see a net decrease this month, while most people 'upthread' -- like the $500k to $1M thread -- did). 

Well done everyone!!  Keep calm and keep filling those buckets!  :)

5/31/2017:   $108,986.53   (-$342.47)
6/30/2017:   $114,809.37   (+$5,822.84) Husband started working making 75k
7/31/2017:   $118,822.63   (+$4,013.26)

2/28/2018:   $184,798.13   (+$3,828.76)

My husband hasn't been able to set up a retirement plan at his new job yet and that's the only reason we are ahead of last month. The market ate up our contributions this past month. On the bright side, we've cut cable and our water and electric bills were halved over last month. We are getting into the groove of this house thing. I just signed paperwork on a new position at work with a tiny bump up to 61k. Should hit in the next paycheck.

2/28/2018  $135,864.07 ~ 0.63%

Well that market downturn is getting interesting.  Have not put away as much as I wanted to the last few months, but here is hoping I can turn it around!

Investments and liquid assets, not including condo equity:

April 15, 2017 -           164,900
May 1, 2017 -             ? (Lost info)
June 1, 2017 -            ? (Lost info)
July 1, 2017 -             180,808

February 1, 2018 -       245,447
March 1, 2018 -           242,789

This month was a rough one for me, I had more than normal costs for my condo and it was vacant the whole month... on the bright side, I accepted an offer on it that will rent it out for the next two months refund me the extra costs this month and pay 24k more than I paid for it.  I also am still owed 2800 from my job and around 6k in taxes.  I should be well into the next race in the next few months!

Employer Match went in this month, which is the only reason I was able to stay even. 

It is going to be really weird for those of us who have ever only known gains our whole investing life of up to the past 9 years (almost literally, the Great Recession bottomed out March 9, 2009) when the good times stop being good. 

I think we'll see a lot of true colors shining through on the forums, both for better and worse.  For me, so long as the job security can stay firm I'll be fine, although I know I'll struggle buying into the teeth of a downturn no matter how well educated I am about the benefit of doing so.

Barely clinging to staying in the group in light of the market drop, but managed to stay by keeping up aggressive saving!

Kind of funny that during the last update I was excited about our investments crossing $200k, and then this month I got to watch them dip below and crest above that mark again. Happy to buy some stocks on sale this month :)

Started paying for some honeymoon and wedding reception expenses, otherwise it was a pretty low month for spending. There was a slight bump in our paychecks as the new paycheck withholding tables went into effect - but I will definitely need to adjust withholdings this month based on our 2018 projections.

Hmm. Apparently my superannuation investments got hit harder in the "correction" than I expected. If I take my investment accounts off the table I'm actually up for the period.

Next time... It's a bit frustrating to be so close ($16.5k) in this challenge and not quite tipping over the line.

It will be interesting to see how we all handle more drops like the one yesterday.

I asked earlier if people would leave these threads if market drops reduced their net worth out of the minimal range for the thread, but I guess the answer will depend on the individual. I would assume that most people will stay in a thread once they get there, even if market forces technically push them back down to the previous thread.

It would be sort of crushing to be 'demoted.'

Including IRAs, 401(k), HSA, and Investment Account.
Jan 1, 2016 - $81,396
Aug 1, 2016 - $120,039
Oct 1, 2016 - $122,943
Jan 1, 2017 - $128,893
Mar 1, 2017 - $151,772
May 1, 2017 - $156,756
Aug 1, 2017 - $170,072
Sep 1, 2017 - $174,170
Oct 1, 2017 - $189,054  - moved $8K into Investment Account from Emergency Savings. While overall NW did not increase much, moving money around into respective accounts pushes the needle dramatically.


Nov 1, 2017 - $196,010 - yippee!! so close to $200K!

Dec 1, 2017 - $201,106 - nice! Crossed over to the $200k line. Let's hope I can stay for awhile. Still projecting Jan 2019 to hit $250k.

Congrats to all the graduates this month!

Jan 1, 2018 - $205,595.91

Feb 1, 2018 - $216,842.97

Mar 1, 2018 - $205,429.70
Yikes, all my contributions and then some are gone.... Oh well, keep plugging away! Bonus hits this month, so I will hopefully see a bump.

It will be interesting to see how we all handle more drops like the one yesterday.

I asked earlier if people would leave these threads if market drops reduced their net worth out of the minimal range for the thread, but I guess the answer will depend on the individual. I would assume that most people will stay in a thread once they get there, even if market forces technically push them back down to the previous thread.

It would be sort of crushing to be 'demoted.'
I think I would go down to the other thread if I dipped below. The numbers are what define the thread. I'm not a temporarily embarrassed millionaire, I'm someone with a net worth of X.
Hopefully I don't have to put my opinions into practice. :)

For me it would depend on how close to the boarder I was, and if I felt the next month of contribution would put me back in.  Yes, this is a net worth thread with specific boundaries, but this is also a paper loss.  If I were slowly accumulating, then every new boundary crossing could create back and forth between threads.  That said, if the market tanked and I was now like 2-3 months contributions away, I'd go back.

Sitting this close to the upper end of the scale for this thread, I really hope that I never have to fall back out again! That's some serious market "correction" right there that is probably only possible given a WWIII or zombie apocalypse scenario, in which case my net worth will be the least of my worries. :)

February 1:  $246,732.17   It looks like a big jump.  Part of it is because I got a big bonus put in my retirement account in December, which shows up on the January statement, which then gets reflected in the Jan 31/Feb 1 net worth update.  That's about half of this gain.  The other half is at the end of every year I go through our budget and various sinking funds and any extra money that we don't need to carry forward I deposit into savings.  I only count 1/5 of our checking account balance towards our net worth (long story with reasons, just believe me) so moving it into savings makes it 5x as valuable.  And if I remember right the market went up, right?

March 1:  $242,060.78  Market went downnnnn.  Our cash and savings are up, so this just shows how much the market dropped.  I think this is the first time the market drop has had a significant downward impact on our net worth.  It feels weird.

Just the thread I was looking for. Been working on saving for a while, so looking forward to tracking my progress with others. I include all retirement accounts, investments, personal accounts, liabilities, and home equity in my net worth calculations since that's how I've always done it.

Jan 1, 2018 - $201,283.30
Feb 1, 2018 - $215,187.87 (Wife got big match in 401k) and market huge month.
Mar 1, 2018 - $211,493.56 (Darn market slump and making extra payments on car loan)

That's probably good trick to stay positive.  I was more focused on the fact that my contributions were vaporized (probably only temporarily).

Hi guys!

I was elected Treasurer for an organization and their books were in pretty rough shape (blech) so I've been too sick of looking at numbers (I look at numbers all day at my job too of course) to feel like doing much personal finance stuff. Finished fixing up the organization's books (at least the main of what I want to accomplish in this volunteer role) so I'm back!

Good to see people taking the little dip we had last month in stride. My net worth fell by $4,148.20 despite my tax return (too big, I increased withholdings this year to avoid that next year) and a small employer retirement contribution. Oh well! $224,273.80 and still hoping to graduate by my birthday in late August :-)

End Q4 2016: $146,500

Just over 100k to go!

Up to $173,500. Hoping to break through the $200k mark by October.

Up around $205,000 after the correction, was sitting around $217,000 at the apex. Hope to keep cruising here in 2018!

A solid month savings wise, but my portfolio also isn't invested as aggressively as most on this board. ;)

Hi everyone.   I would like to join this race.  I've been trying to be frugal and save more ever since I got out of debt in late 2013.  I just found MMM last December, and this January I created a Mint account.  This is the first time I've ever tried to actually keep a written budget.  Oh my gosh, it's so much FUN!  Maybe I'm just a total nerd.  Anyways, this place is amazing and you all are very inspiring.
