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%)
1/20: $117,811.45 (+4,927.26, +4.37%)
2/20: $124,417.62 (+6,606.17, +5.61%)
3/20: $118,287.76 (-6,129.86, -4.93%)
4/20: $109,838.67 (-8,449.09, -7.14%)

Had a couple thousand dollars of back pay go straight into my 403b earlier this month, and still down a ton with the market. Grateful to still be getting a paycheck, though, and grateful to be able to buy these shares on sale.

If this keeps up, I'll probably drop below $100k next month. I know people are mentioning going back down to the previous race, but I'd rather stay here. I'm still contributing as much as ever, and any drops are only from the market. I feel like I earned entry into this thread with my contributions, and I have faith the market will bring me back up again. I just don't know when.

Another tough month, but actually it's a bit higher than it was a few days ago. Expecting to ride this thing down at least another month or two.

Is this net worth, or portfolio balance?

@Accrual it is totally up to you. I personally do portfolio balance since that's the number I'm planning to use for retirement. I may change that once I start buying rental properties.

I am a 46y/o single mom recovering from prior bad spending habits. I am self employed with irregular income (and irregular investing) but it averages out at about 70k/yr net - before taxes. I am only tracking my investments. Thanks for sharing my journey!

2018 -  $78,121.71
2019 -  $118,693.32
Jan/2020 -  $118,495.49
Mar/2020 - $97,855.38 (-17.42%)

Given that the decrease is not due to my bad spending habits, I am staying put in this group for now.

I am planning on rebalancing some winners for some losers to match my IPS statement Monday thanks to my IPS (I am sure glad I committed to an IPS it's super helpful to keep me from making emotional decisions right now!) and I also topped off my HSA contributions for the year today.

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
Dec2019 — $122692
Jan2020 — $120521
Feb2020 — $123625
Mar2020 — $124248


Numbers updated thru the last day of the month

Coronavirus update; thus far I minimized most losses in my account.  I’ve been using a fairly good plan and avoid emotional moves with the market.
There was a moment I jumped back in according to the plan, but unfortunately lost 5%. Oh well.  You win some and you lose some.

I hope others were able to make adjustments and protect their investments. Times are a bit strange right now; however, I anticipate we will recover once this virus moves on. 
Keep safe everyone!

These are investments only between me and my wife`s 401ks, Traditional IRAs, taxable brokerage, immediate emergency in checking account, 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

February 22, 2020 = $176,650.55
April 7, 2020 = $155,679.52

I went a while without checking our balances to keep our minds off of things. Not as bad as I was expecting, but we have still been contributing while getting some nice gains yesterday.

Indeed. My company announced 1000 terminations and put another 1000 people on furlough, there but for the grace of God go I.

I'm invested pretty aggressively overall, intentionally.  I'm not worried at all.  I can hardly remember to look at the numbers anymore with so much other stuff going on, hence how late this update is.  But I did set up an auto-invest in Vanguard for $600 each month, so there's that.   ―\_(ツ)_/―

09/1/19 - $138k
10/1/19 - $145k
11/1/19 - $155k
12/1/19 - $166k

02/1/20 - $197k (bonus)
03/1/20 - $201k
04/1/20 - $195k
Today    - $215k

Markets were/are rough, but I moved out of my apartment at the end of march to move in with some family while my SO and I look for a house in the area. The savings from rent and quarantining. Happy to be able to WFH with a high income, fingers crossed I won'e be the next casualty in layoffs because work is slowwwwww. Would've like to be moving past the 250k mark soon, but honestly just happy to be healthy and employed these days.

No further transactions scheduled for April, so I'll jump in now.

Household net for 2 adults:

I am happy to see much of everybody recovering over the last month. I`ll be posting where we stand on Saturday, but it is crazy to see that around March 23rd we were around $40K lower than we were on Feb. 19th. However, as of today we are just a few thousand shy of where we were in mid Feb with the continuing contributions combined with a month of recovery. Like some of you have said, we are also thankful to still have our jobs as well. Keep your chin up my friends.

Tomorrow I'll be at $177k after I pay rent and taxes :/

I am a 46y/o single mom recovering from prior bad spending habits. I am self employed with irregular income (and irregular investing) but it averages out at about 70k/yr net - before taxes. I am only tracking my investments. Thanks for sharing my journey!

2018 -  $78,122
2019 -  $118,693
Jan/2020 -  $118,495
Mar/2020 - $97,855
Apr/2020 - $104,648

I'm back in the club!!!

Because I know my income will be low this year thanks to the pandemic, and because I always want to meet a certain taxable income to maximize my tax planning, I  converted $6800 of my IRA to my Roth IRA while my balance was down. I will probably convert more later but I want to see how the year goes. I rebalanced my holdings this morning. I also maxed out my Roth IRA contribution ($6000) in April so that is new money invested in April, meaning that what the gains from March to April is not due to the market, it is due to my hard work. I like it better when the market does the heavy lifting for me! But eventually it will do that again.

Just graduated from the 100k thread with a 10% overshoot from the goal.

March 2018: $23,463.61

06/01/19: $170,858
07/01/19: $178,164 ($7,306 gain)
08/01/19: $183,917 ($5,753 gain)
09/01/19: $187,578 ($3,661 gain)
10/01/19: $193,112 ($5,533 gain)
11/01/19: $200,575 ($7,463 gain)
12/01/19: $206,981 ($6,405 gain)
01/01/20: $210,660 ($3,679 gain)
02/01/20: $220,276 ($9,616 gain)
03/01/20: $216,826 ($3,450 loss)
04/01/20: $219,362 ($2,536 gain)
05/01/20: $236,819 ($17,457 gain)

  Happy to still be working and saving. However, almost all of this gain is from the market recovering some of its covid losses. Between my cash balances in investment accounts, a large tax return, and rebalancing some bonds, I was fortunate to be able to buy approx 50k in equities at a nice discount.

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

Jan 2020: $100,566
Feb 2020: $107,987 (+7,421) [+7.38%]
Mar 2020: $96,513 (-11,474) [-10.62%]
Apr 2020: $90,626 (-5,887) [-6.09%]
May 2020: $104,595 (+13,969) [+15.41%]

Year-to-date change: +$4,029 [+4.00%]

Back in the $100K club! Been quite a ride over the last 30 days and I doubt the whole thing is over. A pretty good mix of continuing my normal contributions, adding a few extra contributions into a down market, and the correction earlier this month. Almost back to where I was in February and hoping I don't fall back below $100K again!

I don't know if the worst is behind us or not, but I have to imagine that even if this turns into a full blown recession, the market has already taken most of its losses.
