That inflection point is hilarious indeed. :-)

How does the compounding number drop in certain months without a corresponding overall drop though?

Nice to see the market gives you those nice pushes in the back. I may steal your format actually, looks very clean.

Thank you. I do this because when I started MMM (not that long ago) I would look at the races and see increases of thousands of dollars - specially on the races over 100k. I felt a little discouraged, because there was no way I could save 5k a month. But then I noticed one poster (not sure who) that displayed how much he saved, and how much the market gains were: I figured - "That I can do". So I copied his format.
Exactly, I'm on the cusp of the 250-500k thread. I want to target growing by 10k/month if I am to graduate in roughly 2 years. I can not save/contribute anywhere near 10k per month though so I will need the market's help.

I'm not quite sure what you're asking there.

It's a stacked line chart, with one value reading total contributions, and the other reading total gains based on current portfolio value. If market were to drop below my level of contributions, it would look something like the picture below. The blue area (my contributions) would continue to rise, but the green area, which represents total portfolio value would be lower.

I see, that makes sense. Not sure what I was thinking.

1/11/2019 - $198,410.93
1/12/2019 - $204,597.01

Had set myself a goal to hit $200K before 1 Jan but the Australian market beat me to it.

Note: The values include superannuation (the Australian retirement account, which I contribute to personally because I'm self-employed), but do not include equity in my primary residence, which is mortgaged with 20%+ equity.

I knew i was getting real close, unfortunately no celebrations yet as I just added up my investments and am at $249894.69 as of today. My post-tax 401k will show up on Saturday or Sunday and assuming a flat market tomorrow I should make it out of this thread for the first (and hopefully last) time.

Fingers crossed!

Dec-19: $249741.51 = $14397.95 HSA + $6976.56 VG Taxable + $228367.10 Fidelity (Taxable, Roth IRA and 401k).

Did not make it but ecstatic with the progress since some RSUs will vest tomorrow that will put me over the top by a few k. This number also doesn't include any of our equity in vehicles, emergency fund etc so I will consider myself unofficially graduated.

Now that we've established that the top is in, it may take another few paychecks to reach 250k. :)

For context: I'm 30 in a HCOL city. I'm married, but these are my own numbers since we keep our finances separate. Includes cash, retirement, and credit cards, which are used for normal expenses and paid off in full every month.

3/18: $48,533.91 (found MMM and started tracking)
3/19: $83,762.93
8/19: $101,572.33 (graduated to this thread)
9/19: $104,368.69 (+2,796.36, +2.75%)
10/19: $107,279.56 (+2,910.87, +2.79%)
11/19: $111,107.47 (+3,827.91, +3.57%)
12/19: $112,883.69 (+1,776.22, +1.60%)

Spent a lot this month so the lower gain is due to a decrease in my cash buffer. Contributions the same as always.

Not a bad month.  The market helped; 401k contributions were reduced to just the match percentage in order to stockpile money for possible rage quitting.  Hasnít happened yet, and my cash cushion holds about 8 [lean] months.  If still employed by next year, the goal is to invest half my income all year.  I expect some big jumps between now and February/March due to OT this month, raise/bonus, company 401k match, etc.. And overall I'm super eager to see what I end the year at and how much it has grown since the beginning of the year!

Iím jumping in this thread with a few ideas and thoughts in mind. I donít plan to add house equity or extras like that. Iím not even going to add the spouseís 401k. Iíll be solely tracking
My 401k and my Roth IRA Numbers to go toward the goal of $250k. I may add the savings account numbers later, but most of that pays toward the last of my mortgage and a basement remodel right now.

My stats:

Jul2019 ó $101953
Aug2019 ó $106277
Sep2019 ó $111050
Oct2019 ó $114791
Nov2019 ó $120215


Numbers updated thru the last day of the month

12/20/2019 $150.243.29 invested; another $12,000 in a HSA; maybe another 80 k for my modest condo (100k - 20k I'd have to spend upgrading it to sell it); less than $2500 in checking. (No emergency fund, and I really ought to do something about it but the market has had such great returns lately that it is hard not to keep putting money in it.)

Up from $0 invested 5 years ago. Income under $30,000. If only I had done this 25 years ago.

9//2019   $144,935.02
10//2019 $155,176.79
11//2019 $165,030.63 - haven't calculated SR for the month.

Should finish the year around $170k depending on market fluctuations. Pretty good for one year. Really need to take the time to calculate savings rate + market gains overall to see how much of this is savings and how much is market gain. I think the 10k between October and November was about 50/50 savings/market gains.

November was relatively uneventful financially. Biggest "excess" expense is therapy, which I think is 100% worth the money. And can always cut down on eating out/food expenses. Want to start meal prepping 1x a week to avoid eating so many frozen burritos.

Barring a recession, should be able to graduate this thread in 2020!

These are investments only between me and my wife`s 401ks, Traditional IRAs(maxed), taxable brokerage, immediate emergency in checking account($3,000), and Money Market account for emergency funds(currently sitting at about 6 months of our budget):

April 13, 2019 = $100,325.68
May 19, 2019 = $104,598.06
June 29, 2019 = $116,258.11
July 28, 2019 = $125,262.57
August 24, 2019 = $125,496.17
September 8, 2019 = $135,203.65
September 21, 2019 = $141,995.43
October 6, 2019 = $144,609.88
October 19, 2019 = $148,424.92
November 3, 2019 = $153,424.19
November 17, 2019 = $156,260.45
December 1, 2019 = $160,550.38
December 15, 2019 = $162,506.95
December 28, 2019 = $167,860.18

End of the year! I just looked at an old post from January 15th and I was at $82,000 back then. This has been an amazing year for us.

We're at $130k right now and on track for $150 at year end. Maybe we can graduate next December if all goes well. (If all does not go well, the Buffett family buys more hamburger when hamburger is on sale, and will not cry.)

1/12/18 $50k
7/13/18 $63k
10/19/18 $75k
1/31/19 $80k
2/28/19 $100k
5/31/19 $119k
8/30/19 $130k
12/31/19 $163k

2019 has been very good to us - we more than doubled our net worth, including the massive start to the year to cancel out the December '18 dip.

We have a shot at graduating well before the end of '20 - my goal is to save $100k during the year so even without market help we should get there before December. And we may move to a much cheaper apartment (NYC -> Jersey City) which could have us saving more like $120k. In a really strong market we could double again in '20 and end up just past $300k in a year's time.

11/30/19: $143,839
12/31/19: $150,705 (+6866)

Doing a look back at 2019, we started the year at $36.2k net worth. Made quite a bit of progress this year, which is exciting! Assuming we're able to save according to plan in 2020, we're on track to graduate by January 2021 just with our savings contributions. Looking forward to seeing how the year shakes out!

Ending off 2019 with a great jump! Market very friendly throughout 2019, 175k by the end of 2020 is very reasonable even if the market stays fairly flat
