The holidays are upon us and that means our net worth increases will likely be hindered. The markets had a good run last week so that’s helped us out a bit, but not enough to bring us in the black. Some months are good, others, bad, and this one was mediocre. Let’s get on with it…
Checking Account: $3,485; (change not shown since money is constantly in and out of this account). Checking accounts are pretty boring. Nothing more to say about that.
Savings Accounts: $58,792; +$1,811. Any gain in our savings account puts us another dollar closer to our $100,000 savings goal. Can’t even imagine what it will feel like when/if we make it there. Maybe like a million unicorns singing “we are the champions” as I’m getting a 60 minute back massage from Tinkerbell? Yeah exactly like that.
Roth IRA: $25,365; -$302. Even with the markets up some 7% last week I still couldn’t pull ahead for the month. One of these days this Roth IRA thing of mine is going to actually make me some money. At least that’s what I keep telling myself.
TSP (401K): $26,179; -$287. Seven hundred dollars contributed, four hundred dollars lost 🙁 Blah.
Student Loan: $0. HahahahahahahHahHhHahahahaha. Hate you Sallie Mae.
Credit Card: $3,237(change not reflected since balance gets paid off). Dropping some mad cash like its going out of style. Airfare, some necessary (and unnecessary) shopping trips, and other random expenses makes for one gnarly credit card bill. Fortunately we can pay this sucker off each month. If we don’t have the cash to backup the purchase, we don’t buy it. You should follow a similar plan.
So we had some ups and some downs which resulted in an overall decrease of $958 from the previous month. Our net worth now stands at $110,599. We moved up over $10,000 last update, so I’ll just pretend this small loss didn’t happen and keep positive. You can’t win em all… But I sure would like too 🙂
Were you up or down last month?
