Little late on the net worth update this month. I guess it just kind of slipped my mind. I contemplated not doing one this month, but then I realized that would mess up my archives. I don’t necessarily post these updates for you people. Why would you care what my net worth is anyways? But instead post these so I can go back and see how Girl Ninja and I are progressing over the years. I often look back through my archives and see how far we’ve come along.
Just a few short years ago I was worth negative $28,000. My, oh my, how the times have changed.
Cash: $98,527; +$3,877
Oh my freaking goodness. We are so close to hitting our 2+ year goal of $100,000 cash. We have some big expenses coming up, travel, charity, etc so we wont be breaking this goal by next update, but I’m hoping to have something more to celebrate on my 28th Birthday in July than just being another year older.
Roth IRA: $40,088; +$1,833
Man the market is nutso right now. Everyday it just keeps setting new records. I’m tempted to pull these funds out of the market and turn my paper gains in to realized gains. When everyone else is buying (like they have been the last 12 months) I start to get all nervous and wonder when the correction will come.
401Ks, IRAs, etc: $64,218; +$5,911
This is when things get fun! As the markets improve each month, we get some really killer gains in our 401ks. The downside to this is we obviously get hammered when the markets go down. That said, I can’t really complain about making $6,000 last month when all I did was click a few buttons on the internet. Watching my money make money is my third favorite thing. Girl Ninja being my first. Unicorns being my second.
Credit Card: $3,447 (change not reflected since balance is paid off each month)
This is about double our normal monthly credit card balance. We bought plane tickets to California and Boston for June weddings and we are finally seeing all the expenses from our 10 day spring break trip to San Diego. Oh and have I mentioned we’ll be spending two weeks visiting Germany, Austria, Italy, Morocco, France, and Spain this summer? Travel aint cheap, but I’m not complaining.
We had some huge gains last month which resulted in our net worth shooting up $12.307 since last update. This means We FINALLY BROKE THE $200,000 threshold.
$201,919 to be exact!!!
We are up more than $39,000 since January. It feels awesome breaking in to a new tier, but I’m already counting down the days to $300k
