Joined in Oct one day before the market went kaput and high tailed it back to the 100-250 thread until now. I can say I feel much better about reentry with 270k than 251k.

This month has been phenomenal due to the market bouncing back, and some additional 2018 IRA stuffing. Next month or two should look pretty good too with additional IRA stuffing.

I am hoping that 2019 ends with me over 300k. Hard to imagine a couple years back that I'd ever be here projecting this.

Hi everyone. I just joined recently and thought it would be a good idea to join one of these threads. I was all set to join the $100k - $250k thread but was astonished when I added up our net worth for the first time that we (couple) belong here already! We only get a reliable value for our workplace pensions once a year (April) but here are some initial figures:

April 2018: 302,380.53 ($399,445.59)
March 2019:  310,316 ($409,928.37)
(this will go up by a fair bit when we get our next pension statement)

We've only recently opened S&S ISAs (husband's is a Vanguard LS 80, mine is a Lifetime ISA with Nutmeg, which gets a 25% government bonus on everything I contribute) but we've always contributed to our workplace pensions at 8% with a 18% employer match (plus an extra 1% matched but that is sadly ending soon - USS pension for any UK readers). We also have a rental property and a small cash emergency fund, which we keep in an offset mortgage account. I'm not including home equity in our NW figure as we're unlikely to move anywhere cheaper any time soon.

Ps. I'm not sure whether I'm in this thread until I hit $500,000 or 500,000? Anyone else working in a different currency?

Welcome Moonpalace! Feel free to stay here a while, but hopefully not longer than you plan.... : )


Got sidetracked a few months with the lead up to and arrival of our DD, who is little and cute and hopefully won't throw the race to 500k too far out of whack!

05/01/2017:  $198,456
05/15/2017:  $200,404   
05/31/2017:  $207,044
06/15/2017:  $213,996
07/05/2017:  $219,933
07/17/2017:  $225,853
08/01/2017:  $228,504
08/24/2017:  $228,854
09/01/2017:  $237,500
09/19/2017:  $245,500
10/02/2017:  $251,933
11/07/2017:  $266,000
12/27/2017:  $280,000
01/12/2018:  $300,768
01/23/2018:  $305,566
11/27/2018:  $359,000
03/01/2019:  $400,283

Was hoping to graduate this thread at the end of 2019, but with the market correction and arrival of DD, we'll see.  Nevertheless, keeping tabs here really does help keep me in the right mindset, so back to regularly scheduled updates from rainy California!

I'm somewhat cheating because I'm going from a Single Person Net Worth to a Dual Person Net Worth, but my fiancee and I just graduated from this club!
Assets include both primary residence and rental property. Still have the wedding to get through - we'll give it a few months before leaving this group for good.

Month      Assets   Liabilities   Net Worth
December 2016   $451k   -$219k   $232k
January 2017   $524k   -$217k   $306k
February 2017   $526k   -$221k   $305k
March 2017   $538k   -$216k   $322k
April 2017      $483k   -$216k   $267k
May 2017      $500k   -$218k   $281k
June 2017      $505k   -$217k   $288k
July 2017      $508k   -$211k   $296k
August 2017   $512k   -$211k   $301k
September 2017$514k   -$210k   $303k
October 2017   $516k   -$207k   $309k
November 2017   $518k   -$205k   $313k
December 2017   $526k   -$206k   $320k
Merged Finances
January 2018   $864k   -$441k   $422k
February 2018   $894k   -$437k   $457k
March 2018   $916k   -$437k   $478k
April 2018      $926k   -$435k   $491k
May 2018      $931k   -$434k   $497k
June 2018      $940k   -$435k   $505k

After another 9 months since this date - I feel like I can officially call us graduated (assuming no '08 type dip). See ya in the next race!
                        Assets   Liabilities   Net Worth
July 2018            $939k        -$433k         $505k
August 2018        $956k        -$431k         $525k
September 2018  $975k        -$435k         $539k
October 2018       $953k        -$435k        $518k
November 2018    $962k        -$429k        $533k
December 2018    $962k        -$427k        $534k
January  2019      $977k        -$425k        $552k

Hi all, just joining this thread! From $42k NW in Jan. 2017 (discovered MMM) to $258k today, so tentatively aiming to graduate from this thread sometime around summer 2021.

Got out a bit too early there and missed all the gain.  Will be sitting out for most of this year, possibly some of next year too, so there won't be any significant changes for a while.

I realised that I have numbers for the last three years s here they are while we wait for this year's pension statement:

April 2016: 220,440
April 2017: 261,650.42
April 2018: 302,380.53

I also realised that I can get an estimated monthly update so I'll start recording that at the end of each month too.

Does anyone else calculate their "12 month net worth gain" as well?

It's kind of mind blowing to me that since I started tracking that, it's almost always been above $50k. It's looking like by the end of March it'll be in the $70k range compared to 12 months prior. And that's with us borrowing from ourselves for most of our 2019 giving in December of last year!

I really should be keeping track of actual contributions (401k, mortgage principal, cash savings, etc) to see what is direct contribution vs gains. It's also a bit depressing to realize net worth for us is still down compared to the middle of last year, though part of that is finally rolling my wife's 403b into a 401k and having the match officially lost I guess.

We're a lot more slow but steady compared to a lot of rocket ships here, too lol :-)

Posting April early because we're going on vacation next week!

Sept. 2018 $252,544.08
Nov.  2018 $248,197.15
Dec.  2018 $256,394.61
Jan.   2019 $252,481.67
Feb.   2019 $287,793.45
Mar.   2019 $304,683.46
April 2019 $311,927.67


I'm not sure how our great our May 1st number will be, between vacation spending (eating/shopping, as the big stuff is already paid for), some medical expenses, and a home improvement, but my hope is that we at least don't go backward (I don't think we will).

May-18  - 375k
July -18 - 400k
aug-18 - 410k
Mar-19 - 415K

totally at the mercy of the markets as I work my way through all the debts and costs post divorce.

any changes I make are easily wiped out by a small drop in the market. Once I get done with a couple of my outgoings then I should be good. not too long in the scheme of things. In the meantime the markets getting back to September levels wouldn't be the worst thing ever.....

Smaller increase this month due to costs associated with refinancing my mortgage and, to be honest, some overspending. But hey, I hit $400k for the first time as a single person!

01/31/19 - $381k

Nov-18 $279200 - INV $365200 - NW ---> Big spending month, over $10000 unexpected spending on Medical expenses, travel reservations, hotels, electronics, shopping deals and gifts. Also got new job, lateral move.
Dec-18 $257500 - INV $344000 - NW ---> Hope this market remains low or flat for next couple of months so I can plough more money in. Happy new year you all! It is interesting that the assets like primary home provide so much stability in rough times. If we have a paid off home or enough cash to pay it off safely invested it provides much safety in difficult times.
Jan-19 $290132 - INV $373300 - NW ---> Big bounce back. But I wish it came after Feb. Its likely there will be more opportunities due to various uncertainties in current short term.
Feb-19 $317800 - INV $406000 - NW ---> Big payday of the year helped cross 300k easily.
Mar-19 $323000 - INV $411500 - NW ---> Not much to say this month. we went on 2nd vacation of the year already and so associated expenses affected the growth.

Hello High Net Worth People! I just graduated from the last thread. Weird to think this is a race towards $0.5M, such a big number! Little does the market know that although the race doubled, our household income also doubled year over year, so ideally we will blow through this race in record time against a strong headwind stock sale.

I update my values quarterly:
Quarter StockBondCash  +House
Q3 2016:  $112,200     $165,800
Q4 2016:  $124,300     $178,500
Q1 2017:  $148,300     $203,300
Q2 2017:  $160,548     $217,018
Q3 2017:  $178,042     $235,102
Q4 2017:  $203,082     $260,736
Q1 2018:  $213,941     $272,491
Q2 2018:  $223,802     $283,554
Q3 2018:  $235,666     $296,330
Q4 2018:  $229,947     $291,293
Q1 2019:  $284,421     $346,689

The house is strictly an investment property as of this quarter, so I could consolidate it into a single column. but what the hey. I am only racing non-house assets in the challenge.

Feel so stagnate right now. But I only log investments quarterly and I know they are doing well. Our spending isn't totally ridiculous but we are doing some international travel this year, and we just paid for flights + hotel. Still feels good to be able to save on a month where I pay for most of our travel expenses for the year...

But almost all of our "savings" went into debt payoff this month. *sad trombone*
Also starting having pay go into HSA but not sure if I should include it here. What the heck, I will!

A few dividends and Q1 investment changes... :)

Welp that was an interesting month, and not just cause I didn't expect to go up in the number...  Something about trip to china and the fact that I probably spent a few dollars more then I should have.  But hey, that boxed wine must have made the difference! 

I would appreciate a little trash talking over the next few months (and maybe years) in this thread. A little trash talking is classy, much like the boxed wine and buying real Froot Loops instead of the generic Fruit Spins or Tootie Fruities.

Trash talking.... hmmm, I suppose  I could do that!  Of course that probably means I need to get another boxed wine.
