Good progress, though I have a couple of larger expenses coming up next month, so I kind of expect next month to have a dip.  One big, big, big change this month is that my husband and I each received an early inheritance of property.  I'm not including this in my numbers yet because I'm still processing it.  And it feels a little unfair to include it because it's not something that we've earned.

It's hard to believe that I joined this race nearly two years ago. The time has really flown by. I'm sure that there's a decent chance I'll drop back below $250k - if so, I'll be back in a month or two. If not, I'll see y'all in the next race!

Note: all numbers are from the 1st of the month. Only tracking investments, no savings, assets, etc.

Jan 2020: $100,566
Jan 2021: $215,994
Feb 2021: $228,464 (+12,470) [+5.77%]
Mar 2021: $241,785 (+13,321) [+5.83%]
Apr 2021: $258,131 (+16,346) [+6.76%] - Goal Achieved!!!

Year-to-date change: (+$42,137) [+19.50%]

Well holy crap, I did it!!! I remember setting a graduation goal of July 2021 and thinking, "that's probably a bit aggressive", but here I am, April of 2021 with over $250k!

The truth is, I'm lucky in many ways. I sacrificed in college and got through it debt free. I found budgeting early in life and stuck too it. I've had an emergency fund for as long as I can remember and never had an emergency so large that cash-on-hand couldn't cover it. My wife's health issues, while chronic, aren't damaging to our finances (especially with Obamacare as a fall back). My career path exploded in opportunity a few years after I started, opening the door for significant pay bumps.

It's not fair, to have grown over 150k in net worth while so many others I know are struggling. But the truth is, I've sacrificed for over a decade to be in a position to take advantage of these opportunities - and I can tell you the rewards are very much worth it. Here's to a frugal lifestyle, debt freedom, strong savings, a budget, and an ability to accurately evaluate risk! 

Instead of going to the 500k race, I'm pivoting to the Race to 100% FI thread. My NW is quite a bit higher than my overall investments and I want to start tracking that instead. Plus, a few of the risks I've taken are likely to pay out significantly in the next 18 months, and I'd rather those numbers kept private. If you want to keep up with me, you'll find me over here https://forum.mrmoneymustache.com/throw-down-the-gauntlet/race-to-100-fi/.

Thank you everyone for your encouragement and for sharing your growth, your struggles, and the amazing success of so many! You keep me going on the hard months and make me so excited for my eventual FIRE!

For context: I'm 31 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)
3/20: $118,287.76
3/21: $206,593.43
4/21: $211,501.00 (+$4,907.57, +2.38%)

I hemorrhaged money this month. A lot of regular "lumpy" expenses came due, the biggest of which was my annual CSA fee. I also had a $1400 vet bill, but at least that was offset by the stimulus.

Kind of crazy that my net worth still went up so much this month. I'm getting to the point where the market is starting to matter more than my spending.

Congrats to fellow recent graduates @DadJokes , @alcon835  and @ASW !

These threads have been such a motivating aspect of continuing to keep the gas on the savings pedal. Looking forward to more tracking with more folks in the next threads (for whichever gauntlets you choose to chase :)

I’m jumping in this thread with a few ideas and thoughts in mind. I don’t plan to add house equity or extras like that. I’m not even going to add the spouse’s 401k. I’ll 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 — $101953
Aug2019 — $106277
Sep2019 — $111050
Oct2019 — $114791
Nov2019 — $120215

Jan2020 — $120521
Feb2020 — $123625
Mar2020 — $124248
Apr2020 — $133240
May2020 — $145475
Jun2020 — $143581
Jul2020 — $151652
Aug2020 — $155546
Sep2020 — $149687
Oct2020 — $161159
Nov2020 — $182840
Dec2020 — $197090
Jan2021 — $197402
Feb2021 — $218863
Mar2021 — $229977


Numbers updated thru the last day of the month. 
March was not as good in returns as February, but I still made over $10K in returns and limit my exposure to some of the larger losses that took place in March. I am for the most part sticking to my strategy, and will be in the C Fund for most of April.


My unofficial goal is to pop up to $250k by the end of DEC 2021. It’s going to take some good gains and avoiding any larger drops.  I’m excited to see how 2021 goes.  The “meet my goal of 6% gains for the year” puts me at needing a total of around $230k.  Obviously I’m trying to pump that number up a little.  I’ll be happy to reach that goal, but very happy to reach the $250k.

Good luck to all

This post is long overdue- it suddenly dawned on me that I hadn't updated on here since I first crossed the 100k mark in early december. So here goes: tracking personal NW only, and here to keep myself accountable. I'm a former sporadic poster in the save to 50k thread and the race from 10-100k thread, and always liked reading updates of people in roughly the same boat.

Best of luck and happy stashing!

Not displeased since with where I am since I went through over 4 months of unemployment last year due to Covid. Right now I'm stock piling cash because, although I started my new job in November and was able to start an HSA in January, I'm not eligible for my company's 401k until June (the start of my 7th month at the company) so I'm planning on trying to max it out in the back half of the year and use the cash to live on. Basically, I'm just saving the money that would ordinarily have been going into my 401k to use later. Hopefully that works. Ideally I'd like to be around $200k by the end this year! I think this is an attainable goal but I guess time will tell.

123.950 €
+ 9.916 €

I updated the numbers for my Unit-Linked Life Insurance, that's a big part of the increase.
I had a 54.4% savings rate last month.

The projections, based on 5% interest and constant savings, moved. Everything might happen a month earlier:

150.000 € -> April 2022
200.000 € -> January 2024
250.000 € -> September 2025

Next month my base-income rises, to keep my 50% savings rate, I will have to update what I constantly save, which will hopefully reduce the needed time further. At the same time, remodelling my flat will be more expansive than planned. The kitchen will be financed (at 0%). I will add that dept here as liability, but paying it down won't count as savings.

@Cezil - that is neat to see laid out
What would 2016 you say if they heard 2021 you had $168k?

@zee dot
I had to take some time to think about this.  Honestly, back then, I think deep down I would have been very disappointed that in 5 years, I’d only gotten “that far”.  I might have even let that squash the desire I had for trying so hard.  I can feel whispers of that voice in the back of my head still as I struggle to accept that quitting my job in the next few months and taking a year or two off would be okay.  “But I’m not at my goal and I despise work.  I’ve been job searching for 2 years and nothing has sparked my interest.  I must be broken.  How will I ever earn money again?” on top of new compounding health issues.  It’s been an interesting journey and will continue to be.

Yeah, we are still very close, my goal of 160 is definitely on the optimistic-side, might still be very close by the end of the year.  Best of luck!

   Can't shed an ever mounting desire to GTFO of work for a year. So I'm jumping into THIS race to keep me from jumping out of the rat race too soon.   I'm only tracking investment accounts. keeping my savings/checking mentally earmarked as an emergency-sabbatical fund. I front loaded my 401k contributions  to max out at end of May. My stretch goal for December 2021 is 175k.

As of today $201,294 with Vanguard. About $22,000 in an HSA. A few thousand more in the credit union. Paid for condo and car. Way more groceries in my condo than 15 months ago. Total debt of $1,000 as a SBA loan at 3.75% to my side hustle job, which was somewhat hurt by the Coronavirus.

Vanguard up from $173,884 at the end of 20201, $147,117 at the end of 2019, $119,391 at the end of 2018, $101,027 at the end of 2017, $75,607 at the end of 2016 and $2,400 at the end of 2015.

I'm surprised by how much I have considering how little I've put in. (Purchases $103,700, returns $97,594).

June 2019, hit my first milestone of $100,000 aged 29, on a $50,000 Canadian salary, but only 3 years that job. Previous jobs were no more than part time or mimimum wage while doing school intermittently. I did include my pension here, and recent vehicle purchase.

April 2021, hit 150,000; aged 31. Have included all cash, RRSP, TFSA, a very low conservative vehicle estimate. Not including substantial points accounts, but those will help in reducing grocery expenses for the next few years, allowing me to continue savings. Next estimate will include pension, as I don't have that number on hand right now.

I"m feeling really good about these numbers. I have no student debt, no car debt, no credit card debt. Most of my peers have several of those types of debt, and, pre-covid at least, ate out and ordered in several times a week. It adds up. I dont feel burdened by my choices, I eat a varied and healthy diet, and have enough activities and entertainment in my life.
