Let the good times roll. February was a great month for Girl Ninja and I, as far as our net worth was concerned. We kept plugging and chugging and managed to scrape together another couple thousand bucks. So far we are on track to break $100,000 NW by year’s end. Here’s the breakdown…
Checking Account: $4,370; -$2,463. I’ve probably spent $1,000 on California Burritos over the last two weeks. Those things are so tasty, I just had to eat one every chance I got. Okay, maybe I didn’t spent $1,000. Probably more like $50.
Savings Accounts: $24,656; +5,510. Can I get a Booya for increasing our savings 5 grand? Gotta bank as much of this Dual Income as possible, cause the day will come when Girl Ninja wants to become Mom Ninja…scary!!!!
Roth IRA: $22,249; +$223. I should have waited for the end of the day to post this update. At the current moment the Dow is up 168 points. Me likey when the market goes up. Me no likey when the market goes down.
TSP (401K): $22,320; +$588. The standard 5% contribution heads this direction each month. That 5% gets fully matched. I invest in virtually the same types of funds in both my Roth IRA and in my 401K so they generally perform the same. BORING.
Student Loan: $0. Still loving that paid off school loan. I’ve been debt free for 10 months now and it feels WONDERFUL! Like, just-ate-17-california-burritos wonderful!
Credit Card: $1,458. Our credit card bill each month usually hovers between $1,200 and $2,000. Every dollar we spend, is an airline mile gained. Nothing like making our money work for us 🙂
In all, we were able to increase our net worth by another $4,169 over the last month. That puts our total Net Worth at $72,138 (this time last year, it was $33,525). If we keep doing what we were doing, we should hit $100,000 in about October, if I stop eating California burritos, we could probably hit that mark next month…October it is!!!! 🙂

**I chose not to include ‘possessions’ (including our cars) in our NW calculations, which would probably increase our worth by about $15,000.**
