I swear I just did one of these posts. Time flies when you’re having fun I suppose. We had a great month with some extra help from the stock market. Who else was pumped to see the dow breach 13,000?
Checking Account: $4,063; (change not shown since money is constantly in and out of this account). I use to try and keep the checking account at about $1,000 at all times, but I’ve gotten lazier over the last year or so and don’t move money around as much as I could. Losing a few bucks a year of interest because of it. A lazy tax I suppose.
Savings Accounts: $67,276; +$4,586. Overtime pay was very good to us while I was in Korea. Not only was I able to bring home a little extra bacon, but our expenses were relatively low as well since I wasn’t driving and all my meals and incidentals were reimbursed. March is a three paycheck month for me, so hopefully we can do some more damage 🙂
Roth IRA: $28,265; +$352. I can’t wait for the day this account is seven figures. Knowing the 40 plus years of saving all paid off. That’s the goal anyways. Here’s to hoping.
TSP (401K): $31,093; +$695. This is slightly less than average because my last update was so late in to the month it already accounted for one of these deposits. Still socking away 8% and loving my employers 5% match.
Credit Card: $1,623 (change not reflected since balance is paid off each month). It seems too good to be true. We’ve managed to keep our credit card bill sub $2,000 this month, and last month. We put every expense possible (I literally used my CC for a $0.75 post office charge this month) so charges can start to add up quick.
We are so thankful we are in a position where our income trumps our expenses by a decent margin. We try our hardest to be responsible with our resources, and this has allowed us to make some major leaps and bounds over the last 1.5 years of marriage. Our new net worth now stands at $129,078, which is up $5,151 from last month. Keeping my fingers crossed we can keep moving forward.
I might stop doing these NW updates cause they seem so boring, thoughts?
