4/28/17 $82,123.14 start of competition
5/31/17 $83,416.85 an increase of $1,293.71
6/30/17 $88,646.63 an increase of $5,229.78
7/31/17 $97,939.57 an increase of $9,292.94
8/31/17 $98,975.02 an increase of $1,034.45
9/29/17 $101,431.60 an increase of $2,456.58
10/31/17 $106,262.40 an increase of $4,830.80
11/30/17 $103,638.95 a decrease of -$2,623.45
12/29/17 $107,889.26 a 4% increase of $4,250.31
01/31/18 $112,888.72 a 4.6% increase of $4,999.46

Obviously the market did most the work this month.  I worked some overtime so my paychecks were a little bigger than usual.  I did pay a $1,000 medical bill and sold a motorcycle for $700 more than what I though it was worth.  I have one larger medical bill looming plus wedding expenses.

I am joining this race from the $10k-$100k race!  Hopefully not too early.

I don't count true NW but thought it would be nice to look back and see it, so I added it!  What I am really tracking is the "Invested Total" column.  I also don't count different savings accounts if they have a specific purpose (maternity leave, self-employment taxes, etc).

What is happening in 2018:  Baby #2 is due in late March!  I accepted a job offer last week that includes a 30+% raise. I will not be able to contribute to the new company 401k until I have been there for 30 days, very close to when I take unpaid maternity leave, and we are holding off on putting anything into the IRA until after maternity leave so our Invested Total should follow the market increases/dips for the next several months with very little contributions added.  We also plan to finish off student loans in 2018 (finally).  If DH's business continues growing as it has for the last few months I would love to max his IRA and then will need to make decisions of paying down debt vs investing in another rental vs increasing my 401k vs opening an IRA for me vs increasing contributions to 529 Plans.

I was hesitant to join this group before the end of the month but it looks like I made a safe bet, I am here to stay (until the next graduation)!

05/31/15:  -59,130 - Started tracking
12/31/15:  -48,294
06/30/16:  -31,079
12/31/16:  -12,948
06/30/17:   16,864

12/31/17:  115,566.39
01/31/18:  129,358.02 (+13,791.63)


Up $13,791 for January, market returns and a higher than average income.  We have a maternity leave coming up so will see NW losses in the 1st half of the year.

We have some pretty close numbers for this race and we have a maternity leave coming up too.  We don't count the savings that was specifically set aside for that so I am hoping it won't have a NW loss but we also will not be adding anything to savings from the middle of Feb until probably the middle of June.

Up $13,791 for January, market returns and a higher than average income.  We have a maternity leave coming up so will see NW losses in the 1st half of the year.

We have some pretty close numbers for this race and we have a maternity leave coming up too.  We don't count the savings that was specifically set aside for that so I am hoping it won't have a NW loss but we also will not be adding anything to savings from the middle of Feb until probably the middle of June.

We do have rather close numbers!!!

We had planed on selling our home, which would have netted us >10,000 in hand, but our buyer fell through (read was super shady) and then the seller on the house we were under contract for won't release our $3,000 deposit.  So currently we're about $13,000 down from expected cash in our checking/savings account.  We're currently pursing the $3,000 in small claims court....
Now it's too close to the baby being born to try and sell, so we're staying.  Which is annoying but fine.
I'm hoping to be able to cash flow all of maternity without dipping into "savings" but I do count all cash assets in my NW calculation.

My work is changing drastically when I go back from maternity leave.  I hope much to the better but we will see how I feel comfortable calculating it.  I think I'll be keeping my LLC money separate and then paying myself quarterly after I pay qaurtlery taxes.... so we might not see gains in NW until 3rd quarter this year....  I haven't decided how exactly to do the accounting though.

6/30/2017 $117,232 ~ +1.29%
7/31/2017 $119,087 ~ +1.58%
8/31/2017 $123,218 ~ +3.47%
9/30/2017 $123,886 ~ +0.54%
10/31/2017 $125,468.75 +1.28%
11/30/2017 $124,036.64 ~-1.14%   - Almost a new leap day  ;)
12/31/2017 $130,952.23 ~5.58%   - Side note: previous month didn't have tax liens so this % is a little skewed

1/31/2018  $135,011.70 ~ 3.10%

Numbers based on Mint and does not include:
 A small crypto currency investment speculation < $1000

Not much to say.  If I actually had put away what I planned it would be a few thousand higher!  Oh well, at least January's over spending will be paid for by work so, go me?

Now that I知 back to work and hammering closer to 250k, time to really get focused.

Feb 1, 2016 - $90k
Jan 1, 2017 - $177k
Jan 1, 2018 - $196k
Feb 1, 2018 - $214,462

Up $18k in January. I知 alternating 72/82 hr work weeks (every other Sunday off)  at the moment, so I should be saving right around $12k-$13k per month off my income. The rest is market gains. February I should be getting a good tax return. This job will likely end early summer then I値l have to find another. I知 hoping it値l stretch through at least June as that値l be a 3 paycheck month. If I can make it (and keep these hours up) through July I should hit $300k.

Plans have a tendency to change, but that痴 the current goal, aside from joining the 250k-500k club by my 30th birthday in April.

Investments and liquid assets, not including condo equity:

April 15, 2017 -           164,900
May 1, 2017 -             ? (Lost info)
June 1, 2017 -            ? (Lost info)
July 1, 2017 -             180,808
August 10, 2017 -       189,280
September 1, 2017 -   193,727
October 1, 2017 -        209,968
November 1, 2017 -     220,602

January 1, 2018 -        232,213
February 1, 2018 -       245,447

It is a good feeling to look at my total and know that it is more than what I have left on my mortgage.  I'm also much further along this year than I thought and that was with a bunch of extra spending this month.  Along with many others I have to wonder how long this increase will continue, but I'm willing to try to swim upstream and buy stocks at a discount!

NW // Inv. Assets

5/1/17 - $115,775  //  $92,843
6/1/17 - $132,067  //  $96,095
7/1/17 - $134,078  //  $96,404
8/1/17 - $142,711  //  $100,068
9/1/17 - $144,009 // $102,800
10/1/17 - $146,185 // $106,104
11/1/17 - $151,793 // $111,791
12/1/17 - $155,245 // $116,204
1/1/18 - $157,542 // $115,616 - Had some unexpected medical bills hit this month (hence the drop in HSA funds) and decided to pull the trigger and prepay property taxes late in December as well.

2/1/18 - $165,472.41 // $123,774.69

Gain buoyed by a great month in the market and we really reigned in the spending the last two months.  If the market continues the next 12 months like the last 12 months I'll threaten to graduate ($250K) by year end, which I doubt will happen.

12/17: $146,267
1/18: $150,863

This month was a roller coaster... I decided it was a good idea to start investing in options and futures. My networth was above 170,000 at one point, then we had that dip a few days ago and was sub 145,000. Today, I am closing most of my positions, and still hit my goal for the month.

Slow and steady is the way to go, way less stressful!

Yuge gains like everyone else invested this month, but this is also with me going over budget on an expensive trip that kept me from going over $170,000.  I know the party won't go on forever, but it would be nice to have a flat to steady rest of 2018 to get my feet underneath me on post-house purchase replenishment.

What I list is combined with DH. My spreadsheet has our various contributions across various investment accounts split out, but all I really care about is the total, so that's what I list here.

First post for $100k-$250k!  Back in the summer of 2015, my NW was -$12,000.  It was a pretty smooth trip from there to $100k thanks to a ridiculously positive bull market.  I anticipate more ups and downs from here, but here's to hoping on average I can keep plugging away and never waiver through whatever comes next in the coming years.

Dec 1, 2017 - $201,106 - nice! Crossed over to the $200k line. Let's hope I can stay for awhile. Still projecting Jan 2019 to hit $250k.

Congrats to all the graduates this month!

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)
December 2017: $193,677 (total NW $364,276)

January 2018: $203,876

Goal is to hit $250k by the end of 2018!

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.
