401K

I don’t know if I’ve ever loved Girl Ninja more than I do right now! On last months, Net Worth Update, I predicted my NW would go down by three thousand dollars after some wedding/honeymoon/moving expenses. Fortunately, Girl Ninja, coupled with some Stock Market positivity, actually helped my NW increase! Totally not expected, but I’m […]
