Hello All!  I'm joining here after a little finally making it too 100.

Investments only:
9/4/18      73,600
10/4/18    75,950
11/7/18    75,960
10/7/21    96,760
11/12/21 101,000

I took some time off from tracking but I'm back and focused again.  Based on current deposits it will take 5 years to get to 250k so I think I need to increase....

Thanks. I like Prolific and UserTesting; can make about £100 a week (UK) doing these, so it's nothing huge but certainly helps!

Wow you make a hundred quid a week from these? I thought they were the kind of thing where you fill out a hundred surveys and get paid 25p!

Hello hello, I've graduated from the 10k-100k thread. Excited to be here (and in some disbelief). Just tried and failed to make a table to keep my records a bit neater but it was all over the place, so will have to go with a truncated version instead :D

Just read over the last 10 pages or so - some of y'all savings rates are astounding! Very inspiring everyone!

Look forward to getting stuck in!

Only one month left to hit my 2021 goal of $160k.  Market better stop playin with me, lol.  Plan is to ramp up selling all the clutter from my place to the max this month because I need to do that anyway, and it’ll help make up for any market shenanigans holding me back from my goal

+ 1.401 €

A not-so-good-month. You guessed it, the problem was the losses at the end of the month.
I will survive...

I am moving in with my girlfriend, this will be interesting.

I include money that is invested for retirement accounts , but not value of savings for specific items (car insurance for the year etc.) or checking accounts as it is money I will likely use this month. I am hoping to hit 135k by end of year.

Net worth:
2018:                         2019                2020             2021
Jan                          $27,100           $45,839         $89,090
Feb                          $29,443           $43,345         $86,608 
Mar                         $31,603            $39,081         $98,860
Apr    $13,200          $33,959           $47,551         $106,604
May                         $33,933           $51,613         $107,294
Jun                          $37,928           $56,760         $111,827
Jul                           $39,736           $61,567         $116,999
Aug  $22,800           $39,918            $68,102        $122,191
Sep  $23,645           $34,179            $68,212        $121,891
Oct   $23,658           $38,091           $68,976         $130,532
Nov  $23,948           $39,867            $76,790
Dec  $23,960           $43836             $82,778

Nov2021: $133,719.97(+$3,187.69) Pretty close to my year end goal! Hopefully the market hold ☺

Any gain is good this week, right?  I did adjust the numbers because I realized that I skipped a month sometime over the summer and changed the annual gain amount to run 1 January through the following 1 January.

I'm excited to submit my first post to the forum!  On the one hand, we are late bloomers having first heard about the FIRE movement about a year ago at age 43.  On the other hand, we have been saving our whole lives, which has given us a bit of a head start.  We had been "investing" in life insurance and money market accounts and other types of CDs for years.  Over the last year, we have poured most of our liquid assets into an msci world ETF.  I will track our depot account level here.  We are well on our way to 250k and I'm happy to have this chance for financial independence before the age of 67!  Looking forward to seeing everyone's progress on this board!

@jdhansen @JAYSLOL  Thank you for the welcome!

03rd November, 2021 - 204,755 EUR
01st December, 2021 - 208,169 EUR
Goal: 300,000 EUR in April 2024

I was contemplating the saying, "The harder I work, the luckier I get."  That, or similar, was the mantra I grew up with.  Sometimes I have the urge to "work harder" on FIRE.  Actually, there is nothing to do but set the target contributions and wait.

Cool, welcome, what kind of side hustles are working for you?

Thanks. I like Prolific and UserTesting; can make about £100 a week (UK) doing these, so it's nothing huge but certainly helps!

Wow you make a hundred quid a week from these? I thought they were the kind of thing where you fill out a hundred surveys and get paid 25p!

Yeah I usually make about £10 per day or so. User testing is £7 per task so if you qualify for a few in a day, you're winning.

Seem to be stuck in a bit and up and down due to markets.  Christmas shopping is complete and aiming to end the year at higher than our October total.  Will be interesting to see what the markets do over the next month.
