Slow month for April--lots of medical bills from DW having a baby (woo hoo!), but good markets were able to overcome.

On that subject--pre-insurance, the bills from having a baby would have been about $25,000. Let's hear it for HSAs and maxing out your annual deductible!

Congrats on the baby!

Just the FIRE stash
-----------------------
Dec 2016 -  $101,671
Jan 2017 -  $105,278   (+3,607)
Feb 2017 -  $111,155   (+5,877)
Mar 2017 -  $116,248   (+5,093)
May 2017 - $122,014 (+2,883 AVG/2 months because I forgot to update in April)

Next mini goal is definitely a round $125k! It's so nice to see this continue going up every month as it's been a rough start to the year financially speaking. I knew we'd need to recover some cash reserves after our big restoration project, but it's been difficult with a lot of vehicle issues and a simultaneous double appliance meltdown. Fun times! I'm feeling optimistic though. My general cash reserves are looking good again and I've got money set aside for 2 out of 3 upcoming expenses. I'll tuck away a bit more for the third and then hopefully I'll be back at work maxing my Roth for the year. I am determined to max all the things this year!

Including IRAs, 401(k), HSAs, and Investment Account.
Jan 1, 2016 - $81,396
Oct 1, 2016 - $122,943
Jan 1, 2017 - $128,893
Mar 1, 2017 - $151,772
May 1, 2017 - $156,756 - old employer HSA is now drained due to baby hospital birth bills. We spent a lot of HSA dollars in the last two months!!

Still feel good with my goal of $250k by Jan 2019.

Finally made it into this thread! I'm amazed at how much some of you guys are able to put away each month. Is it high income, dual income, market return. Either way I'm jealous. Well here is my starting point, with no home equity.

8/8/16: $101,750

I may have skipped a few months of posting, but It's time to get back on track.

2/24/17: $110,773

3/31/17: $115,783

4/30/17: $116,557 not as much as I'd hoped. However, I did spend more on some rock climbing gear and did go out a few times near the end of the month. This month will be a much more frugal month.

03/2017 - $130,500
04/2017 - $133,780 (+3280 - Saved $2500, Market Gains $780)
05/2017 - $138,157 (+4377 - Saved $2835, Market Gains $1542)

Saving more, but still only a savings rate of 54%. April was a 5 weekend month though - I'm confident I can get it to 60% easily and 64-65% on good months.

Jan. 1, 2017 - 103,000
Feb. 1, 2017 - 106,500
Mar. 1 2017  - 102,500
Apr. 1  2017 -  110,000
May 1  2017 -  112,500

Had 10K come in from side business, and then 10K go out, so I spiked up to over $120,000 for a hot minute before renovation costs came through on the new house. 
Glad to raise the total since I'm covering a second mortgage while under contract for the rental to sell.  That means no rent coming in, paying back security deposit, and paying to get rental up to snuff to sell. 

Looking forward to getting through this renovation and sales if, for nothing else, to quit messing up my Mint charts with wild financial swings!



It is fun to finally start getting a body of data for this spreadsheet though!

A question about tracking and marriage: I am getting married this summer. My plan was to lump my fiance's NW into my own, as we will be sharing finances. That will cause a noticeable spike in 'my' NW, as reported on this thread.

Do those of you that are married report your NW as a couple or as individuals?

I guess it really doesn't matter one way or the other...and may just boil down to whether or not you and your SO have separate or combined accounts -- still wanted to ask!

I have been tracking ours as a couple, but we only have one income at the moment. It was easy to include my husband's savings. Not sure how we've going to handle it in June once her starts working. I would like to track as a couple, but have to see how we end up handling our money.

NW as a couple.  When we got married, both of us had debt and just a handful of cash so no real NW bump.

You should track your progress however it makes the most sense for your situation. If you are married with combined finances it probably makes the most sense to track together.

Personally, I'm tracking individually. We track finances separately and are working towards different goals. I'm working towards FIRE and he's working towards a career change doing what he loves instead of what pays well. I invest in the stock market, he invests in his business.

Recently married and recently combined accounts to one bank account so there is no way for me to separate a part of it now. I just put a little comment in my spreadsheet to explain the $50k or so jump.

May 2017: $152,000

Had some oil stocks that brought me down a bit and cancelled out some other gains, but I'm keeping them around for fun.  Savings now is around $3k a month, trying to push it up this year after a raise and once our 401k match comes back.  Also taking advantage of discounted shares through our employee stock plan, cash out is every 6 months.

Mar 2016     $28,361
Apr 2016     $31,751
May 2016     $38,742
Jun 2016     $40,970
Jul 2016     $61,657 (added my HSA of about 9k into Mint)
Aug 2016     $64,120
Sep 2016     $66,961
Oct 2016     $70,179
Nov 2016     $73,125
Dec 2016     $80,499
Jan 2017     $87,257
Feb 2017     $93,080
Mar 2017     $99,766
Apr 2017     $97,334
May 2017    $100,755



So Mint has me at just over $100k, woohoo.  I expect it will take 4-5 years to reach $250k at my current pace. Hoping to accelerate that.  We shall see.  Still have a bit of low interest debt to pay off.  Making steady progress.

Are you including house equity in your numbers? Equity in my home has gone up conservatively in the last few years about $40k thanks to housing market in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area! I feel like I'm cheating myself by adding it to my numbers. What do you do?

I include all major assets such as house, cars, and investments and exclude all other household items like jewelry, furniture, clothing, etc. I subtract all debt such as the mortgage, student loans, and other debt from the assets to calculate net worth. I exclude household items because I like to be conservative and trying to figure out the price of all of them would be too tedious and time consuming.

Personal Capital is able to calculate my net worth using that criteria so that's how I do it at any given time. I also have a spreadsheet where I manually track this and other financials but Personal Capital is my first stop.

Welcome!!

Thanks! 10k-100k took 34 months (33 of which are recorded in my journal, surprisingly). Probably similar for 100k-250k, I'd imagine.

Killed it this month! Tossed a few grand in investments and whittled down about $2,000 in debt. We should easily sail past the $150K NW mark next month, even with a June vacation, because it's 75% paid for. A few more months like this one make $200K by year's end doable.

JOINING!
-----------Found MMM mid 2015 - read all the articles chronologically -
-----------Finished MMM articles mid 2016 - started in on all the links and found the forum  -
BUT:
Despite wishing there was a place to discuss, compare, watch the 'staches grow and egg each other on, didn't find the race threads until just yesterday - so I dutifully read through the 10k race thread last night and the posts for first few rounds of the 100kto250k, and thought today would be a good day to jump in as we just hit a round number and had no one (family/friends/coworkers) to tell (besides DW and I celebrating w some cheap bubbly w dinner at home), as Mustachians are few and far between here in NYC it seems......or in hiding....

A bit on us:
I'm just going to use the MINT investment number here for the journey. Not counting the car, which is old and paid off, but oddly has started accruing value according to MINT--  It's a '99  and is apparently worth $300 more than it was in January - anyone had this happen - has it become a sought after antique? Not counting the checking accounts as I  put pretty much everything directly into Vanguard.  Not deducting the couple thousand dollars of not-yet-vested 401K as that's too much work.  No property ownership yet, so that could change everything, as we are starting to look....in NYC.....hahaha......investments are spread across  Vanguard, Fidelity, and Betterment so Mint number is easiest.

If (knock on wood) employment stays steady, I think late Jan 2018 would be our graduation estimate as we got a good portion done before I found this thread.  Probably will update twice monthly due to pay schedule.

Okay, without further ado, hello to everyone already on this thread, and here goes the proverbial hat into the ring!!!!
5/01/2017:  $198,456
5/15/2017:  $200,404 - was able to put an extra $250 in that was leftover from last month's household budget!! Plus 401k plus a little market gain gets us started!!

@TryingtoFIREinNYC,

Welcome to the thread! I generally post my updates mid-month (it's just how I started so I've kept it going) so I'd love to see another mid-month poster. And yes this a great place to encourage others to get over the hump since we're all on the same team.

I didn't start tracking our NW until Feb this year:

2/17 - 189,044
3/17 - 200,743
4/17 - 207,074
5/17 - 229,425

Will be the first time maxing out 401k this year. My focus has been saving as much as possible to get to our target number this year. Good luck to everyone!

$200k/yr job. I wish I could take credit for it but it's mostly dumb luck.

Minor decrease from closing costs buying a house, moving, and buying a new fridge, washer and dryer. Looking at a couple months on a single income while my wife is between jobs this summer.

I just graduated from the last thread. My starting amount for this one is:

$102,235

I only count my retirement accounts and my husband's Roth (I don't know off hand how to access his 401k balance, and he doesn't have much in there anyway; I don't entirely trust my pension will exist when I retire, so I'm not counting that, either).

This amount will just fluctuate with the market for the next three months as I don't get paid in the summer, so I'll probably see you all again in September. :)

Retirement only, does not include real estate or emergency savings:

January 2015: $98,619

January 2016: $101,235
December 2016: $140,779 (total NW $269,089)

January 2017: $151,307 (total NW $276,052)
February 2017: $156,620 (total NW $285,663)
March 2017: $161,585 (total NW $302,055) received a modest bonus in March and my condo value apparently went up around $10k.
April 2017: $166,111 (total NW $306,801)
May 2017: $169,686 (total NW $327,523)

I know the total NW is over $250k but I'm focused on retirement only for this challenge. A good chunk of the NW is real estate equity.

Marketable securities: 

12/15 ~    $81,000
12/16 ~  $109,000
01/17 ~  $116,000
02/17 ~  $122,000
03/17 ~  $125,000
04/17 ~  $130,000

Zero movement.  Trip to Europe and fairly major car repairs on das autos.  Ugh.
