Another good month! Halfway there! As the school year is over, my next paycheque won't be until the end of September. Haven't signed a contract for the new year, but things are looking good...

Might make a few dollars here and there over the summer. Hopefully I'll be able to minimize shrinkage of my savings as much as possible but it may be inevitable unless my investments do well or I find a good source of income.

If I'm employed throughout the entire time, I expect to reach $250,000 by July 2022 but I could see myself reaching it mid-late 2021 if my investments do well 🤞

Hi all! Finally joining this thread after spending a few years in the 10K to 100K thread. Here's my history from that thread:

9/29/17 - $11,511
6/30/18 - $36,000
1/31/19 - $53,028
6/30/2019 - $75,757
12/31/2019 - $96,225
1/31/2020 - $96,048
2/29/2020 - $94,556
3/31/2020 - $92,438
4/30/2020 - $101,897

This was previously just my personal net worth, however with the graduation I've decided to move to household net worth, so Mrs. Fiction gets to join the fun too. It makes too much sense at this point, given how intertwined our finances have become.

Background - I'm 35 and my wife is 31. DD is two and we have another on the way this summer. Looking to buy a house around this time next year.

Total joint net worth as of 4/30/2020 is $203,198. We are debt-free outside of whatever is on our credit cards, which always get paid each month.

With some market cooperation, some inspiration and some hard work (and some luck!) We just might be able to graduate this thread by the end of the year.

Looking forward to following along with everyone's progress!

New Joint Tracker

                  Solo NW      Joint NW
4/30/2020 - 101,897        203,198
5/31/2020 - 109,544        218,023
6/30/2020 - 114,288        227,585

Better month than last from an expense standpoint. Still plenty of room for improvement, though. This month I am really going to try and curb expenses. I picked off one low-hanging fruit already - cancelling a $6 streaming service so that's a start!

Extra expenses kept the increase to invested funds basically flat last month - Laser Tattoo Removal (~2.5K), Roof Repair Service Call ($850), Shed Building Materials ($800).  Larger Net Worth increase driven by increase in Zillow estimate on home.  I expect that medical expenses and further shed construction material will keep savings largely flat this month too.

Thanks, I had a few bank bonuses come in, and I strangely got a $1,500 bonus at work in lieu of a raise.

We had hoped to graduate in April but the market condition was not favorable. We are almost there though.
But we can't complain since we have been in a fortunate situation.

05/01/18: $109,333
06/01/18: $111,851

05/01/19: $171,260
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)
06/01/20: $241,176 ($4,352 gain)
07/01/20: $243,683 ($2,507 gain)

  At one point in June I was briefly above the 250k mark. By the end of the month the only thing that gave me a modest gain was dividends paying out. While I am disappointed to not be moving to the next race, I am pleased that my dividends were reinvested at a lower price.
  My quarterly EESP purchase hits in July, so expect a possibility of graduation this month, barring whatever the markets decide to do.

Not too shabby of an increase this month. Luckily, my last paycheck and PTO payout are being counted in my July month, so hopefully I'll still have an increase in my first month of funemployment!

02-2020   $83,005.15
03-2020   $83,326.38

As of today weíve crossed the $250k line in net worth. This makes me so happy. From $28k in 2016 to $250k in 2020. Doesnít seem possible. And yet we should be so much further along. Just bad decisions before we started working towards FI. But we are trying to make up for lost time now.

Iím going to stick around here until investments cross the line as well.

Must. Stop. Spending. Money. Still investing maxes in 401(k) & HSA but other than that, extra cash is going to quarantine spendy-ness.

Iím jumping in this thread with a few ideas and thoughts in mind. I donít plan to add house equity or extras like that. Iím not even going to add the spouseís 401k. Iíll 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 ó $101953
Aug2019 ó $106277
Sep2019 ó $111050
Oct2019 ó $114791
Nov2019 ó $120215
Dec2019 ó $122692
Jan2020 ó $120521
Feb2020 ó $123625
Mar2020 ó $124248
Apr2020 ó $133240
May2020 ó $145475
Jun2020 ó $143581


Numbers updated thru the last day of the month.  Appears I lost a little this month. Oh well...

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!

Update #5 (tracking 401k only)    As I predicted in prior comments I stayed in the group because I didn't want to go back and forth.  I am fine with staying around for a bit, and will join the $250-500k group once I am $20-40k above the $250k mark.  No need to flip back and forth when market fluctuations come along.                         
                                 401k
Nov. 12, 2019         $238,035.96
Dec.   3, 2019         $240,880.64
Jan.   1, 2020          $249,417.11
Feb. 11, 2020          $257,961.03
July 13, 2020           $245,429.85 (-$12,531,18)

Hi! I'm new, just graduated from the Race from 10k to 100k thread today. :-)

As a basic introduction, I'm a 30-year-old attorney in a MCOL. I have always been on the frugal side but started diligently saving when I discovered MMM in September 2016. Since then, I worked hard to pay off my law school loans and maximize my career. I live below my means, drive a paid-off 2012 Toyota and rent 1/2 a 1950's duplex with my dog. I'm trying to get into house hacking and would like to eventually have a moderately-sized portfolio of rentals. My annual spend is under $40k per year, I am working to max out all of my retirement vehicles (401(k), HSA, rIRA, total $29,050.00).

07/17/2020: $103,981.86 (+$0.00)

Average monthly change in net worth since September 2016: $2,950.70
Average monthly change in net worth since January 2020: $5,112.70

Projected Graduation based on 2020 numbers: 29.33 months
Projected Graduation date: December 2022

Prior Progress: Race from 10 to 100k!

Household net for 2 adults:

06/2020: 225K
07/2020: 236k

Technically a little early, but current NW is 252k! If the markets are kind and the expenses stay low, I might graduate in September!

07/31/2020: $106,885.86 (+$2,904.00)

The last two weeks were a bit crazy. Unexpected vet expenses (which are unfortunately a norm) but overall still a steady increase. Thankful that this was a three-paycheck month! Still staying the course, investing as heavily as I can, and saving up cash.

My average monthly expenses are about $3,100.00, which is not bad at all. I'd like to try to get it closer to $2,500.00, but there have been a number of emergencies this year already which have driven the numbers up. Without vet expenses, my monthly spend year to date has averaged $2,761.58 which is much more in line with where I'd like to be. Pup is worth every penny, though, and hopefully we are through the worst of it now.

I think I can drive my expenses down by incorporating more whole foods into my diet and cutting back on frozen components for convenience. Other than that, there's not too much else I can do. My biggest expenses are rent (paying for accommodations which are at my minimum standard); groceries (see above); electric/water (splitting with SO); internet (negotiated best deal on this); pet food/supplies (have best deal on this); veterinary (hopefully out of the worst of it); restaurants (cut way down); and transportation (paid off car; cheap to maintain; do small maintenance items myself).
