Another great month in the market. New contributions were slightly outgunned by market gains. Looking forward to the next downturn, as I have about 15k cash waiting to be invested.

I believe conventional wisdom around here would say time in market > timing market.

I just want to say that I love contributing to my 401K. I`ve had a slow few weeks as far as overtime goes, but it is nice to see only $100 come out of my bi-weekly check($2,000 gross pay) for federal taxes.

2019 Goal = $135k (Invested Total) & $222K (Total NW)
2019 Stretch Goal = $160k (Invested Total) & $250k (Total NW)

I do not plan to leave this race until the Invested Total is above $250k (Prediction = Jan 2022 or 4 year from start).

Code: [Select]
Month End 401K        IRA Invested Total Home Value Rental Value Debt         Total NW
Dec-13 $43,660 $0         $43,660 $120,000 $120,000 $232,000 $51,660
Dec-14 $52,943 $0         $52,943 $125,000 $125,000 $227,000 $75,943
Dec-15 $55,622 $0         $55,622 $130,000 $130,000 $227,000 $88,622
Dec-16 $68,870 $700 $69,570 $200,000 $130,000 $281,000 $118,570
Dec-17 $96,294 $1,167 $97,461 $240,000 $135,000 $317,727 $154,724
Dec-18 $103,098 $3,861 $106,959 $240,000 $125,000 $296,155 $175,804
Jan-19 $110,710 $4,151 $114,861 $240,000 $125,000 $313,885* $165,976
Feb-19 $116,005 $4,295 $120,300 $240,000 $125,000 $309,693 $175,607
Mar-19 $119,846 $4,333 $124,179 $240,000 $125,000 $302,998 $186,181
Apr-19 $125,157 $5,322 $130,479 $240,000 $125,000 $296,588 $198,891

*I added $18k-19k of debt for the rental that I had not been tracking.  I realized that if I was going to count the rental equity & mortgage, I probably should count the other rental debt too. 

Another $10k+ swing in Total NW and a big jump in Invested Total!  If we keep that up we will hit our 2019 Invested Total goal by the end of May, guess we will have to wait and see what happens. It would be great if those numbers continued the rest of the year but May should be slow, my other half had surgery and being self-employed means that there will be very little income coming in from that half of the equation.

Only counting my "Early Retirement stash". So this does not include my emergency-fund, pension capital, or payed-off residence.

These are the "end of the month" numbers:
Month      Early Retirement Stash
Jan 2016     58 971.00
Jan 2017     86 368.00
Jan 2018    119 817.00
Dec 2018    135 400.00
Totals for 2018:
Growth    18.847,34   (= 16,17%)
Deposits 27.142,12   
Returns -  8.294,78   (= -6,81%)


Jan 2019    145 840.48
Feb 2019    151 827.59
Mar 2019    157 527.28  ( 5 699.69 growth including 1 440.00 deposits)


Apr 2019    164 309.47   (growth: 6 782.19  deposits:  950.00 )

09/05/18     154,000
10/01/18     168,330
12/01/18     163,458
01/01/19     155,535
02/01/19     166,939
03/01/19     174,622   
04/01/19     177,810
05/01/19     200,000


Looks like a big jump, but it's more that I finally looked at our HSA account ($2,763) and my pension account contributions that I could take if needed ($4800)and added those in.  I did, however, fill up our Roth IRA for 2019 so 12K of that jump was from that and I had it in savings but I didn't count towards networth.  A 46K swing in a school year is not too bad!  And I hit 200K, which is fun (but anti-climatic).  I think, unless the market tanks, that we will hit 250K by December of 2019.

Another strong month.
4/2

Total NW   161399 (+$4340)
   
Total Investments   $115126
Investments Gains/Losses   $966

   
Cash   $46273
$ Saved   -239
Invest. Contributions   3613
   
Non-Rent    3083.5
Spending

A little spendy this month.  April will be spendy as well, as we are having a series of visitors in town.  Also, I'll be getting my LSAT scores back, so I'll either be sorrow-drowning or celebrating.
Did both the hosting and celebrating to an antimustachian degree.  Results from this month are still solid as we had the market on our side.

February: 149253
March: 157059
April: 161399
May: 167213 (+5814)

We've had better months, we've had worse months.  Frankly, we should have done better got pretty loose with the purse strings after being in the hole studying for 3 straight months.

Goals: Crest 200k by Thanksgiving.

Mar-19: Another solid month in the markets: $159,074.12 investments + $8928.66 HSA = $168002.78

I love these market gains :-) $176343 total, will add the detail later.

Detail: $176343 = $9434 HSA + $166908 in investments (Taxable + Roth IRA + 401k)

Went back and looked at my goal when I first joined this thread, I had set it for June 2020 with a stretch goal of January 2020. I am further ahead than anticipated but not by that much either.

Current overall total: $184512.48 which comprises of $9961.61 HSA and $174550.87 investments (Taxable + Roth IRA + 401k + ESPP for this quarter).

This means that reaching $250k by January 31st means ~$65.7k in gains or roughly what my overall annual savings including home equity look like. I doubt I will make it and hoping for a continuation of the stock market at its current pace would be the best year on record so that is also unlikely. We shall see what the future holds but there are really no bad outcomes while I'm still accumulating.

I am tracking only IRA/401K/taxable accounts.
5/31/2018 $100,519.07  - not even the slightest clue on target date...I'll be here for a few years :)
6/30/2018 $105.187.34
7/31/2018 $109,052.07
8/31/2018 $116,748.06
9/31/2018 $125.833.33 (should slow down for rest of year as both 401Ks are maxed)
10/31/2018 $121,400.49 (market pain)
11/30/2018 $120,116/63
12/31/2018 $115,318.38 (more market pain and put some resources towards our new AirBnB venture - looking forward to buying stocks on sale now that 401K is back in play)
1/31/2019 $121,188.34 (next couple of months are my favorite time of year - 401K is in play, bonus and employer 401K match (3% of compensation) all hit)
2/28/2019 $136,880.76 (one twomore fun months, then back to slow(er) growth mode)
3/31/2019 $141,195.30 (one more fun month - employer 401k contribution and last month until max 401k for the year)
4/30/2019 $161,209.95 (going to try to continue speed with taxable account - we will see with a 2-week old at home how this plays out)

Congratulations on the milestone!  I think you actually can notice the benefits of compounding after you crest that 100k point.  Good progress and a great month's gains, too!

Mar 1/19 - $197,862.10

Went a little crazy last month spending about $2,500 more than our budget; but thanks to the market we still came out ahead.  This month looks like it will be a little crazy too with some more big house purchases that we've been putting off for the last 3 years, but hopefully not as bad as last month. 
Also received a raise in April, of which the majority went right into FI savings. Looks like it will shave about year off my working years.

Tax disbursement, small tax return, and market gains.  If I'm being honest I spent a good bit of money this month (garage stuff) because I knew that the surprise income would buffer the guilt/loss.  Anyone else time purchases to coincide with bonuses/tax returns solely to not feel as guilty about the spending?

Another +$10k.  No idea how, but I doubt this is sustainable.  Looks likely I will hit my goal of $250k by the end of the year though barring any catastrophic market events.

Hey all, I'm jumping into the race even though I haven't quite hit 6 figures yet. I ended 2018 with $70k total net worth, and my initial goal for 2019 was to break $100k, but I'm already at $94k as of May 1st thanks to a sizable tax return, great market returns in the first few months of the year, and a larger-than-expected raise at the beginning of the year. At any rate - I'm excited to hit $100k in the next couple months, but already looking forward to a quarter mill. I'll be tracking my full net worth here, not just investments.

May 2019 - $94,105

Broke through the big 2 bills round number threshold in April!  May be short lived if today's action keeps going.

April recap:

So I did pretty much the most unMustachian ever, and bought new F-150 and traded in my old Ford Escape. The Escape was great for a long time, but the new truck will allow me to get a lot more out of it when doing DIY projects and the like, and is a great vehicle for family get togethers since I can fit 6, while still getting the cargo carrying done. I took advantage of almost 20,000 in incentives and good negotiations to get the price down, on top of trading the Escape in for full KBB value, which meant more "equity" in the new truck up front (yes, I know, depreciating asset...there is no equity), and thus a lower principal balance, which will come in handy for extra payments here and there to get it paid off in much sooner than 6 years. I'm very happy with it though.

Outside of that, it was another banner month for investments. Pretax and post tax accounts continued to grow, and savings wasn't too significantly impacted by the truck purchase since it was 0 down with the trade-in, and I'd rather stay liquid right now. Promotion went through in early May, which is a significant leap in my base, which is nice too. School semester is finishing well, I have one last project and (maybe) a final depending on if I like the grade he offers me deal or no deal style, I can choose to sit for the exam or not. If we finish the group project strong, I will have survived the difficult class with flying colors, which will be a nice start to my grad school experience. Plus I should be able to look forward to a full tuition reimbursement as well.

Been trying to cut loose a bit more and have more fun with DW, even if it means slightly more spending. We had a really good month. Took a long walk in a nearby park, watched the sunset over the Hudson River, went to an anniversary party at a local brewery, I made it at the last minute to visit with her and her family out of state for her sister's baby shower despite having the group project hanging over my head, and got the 16 hours of driving done over two days by myself, we've cleaned up the house some (always an ongoing process as we are both super busy this time of year, but finally catching up), and soon we will get back to working on the house again. We've also had some good discussions about our respective qualities of life, and have agreed on a balance that works well for both of us. For me, that means me being more adventurous and less dollars-and-cents about fun, for her, that means recognizing how much I hate taking public transit through bad neighborhoods since I do it often during the work week, and finding more things to do in the surburbs or in our own neighborhood on weekends.

So it has meant walking back a bit since the investments have significant momentum for both of us, to draw the line at frugal, rather than extreme frugal, and continue to grow our wealth together while making sure we make time for fun and the occasional indulgences, provided they are things that make sense, make us happy, and won't ultimately lead to regret since we've carefully evaluated and agonized over them.

Nicely done David!

Too bad the higher that # gets, the less your income affects it. (i.E. market gains and losses can take out monthly increases or go insane and jump up six months of it)
