I wish every month could be so awesome. Unfortunately, our income is around 50% of this last month’s increase, so that’s not exactly possible. lol. Plus, we’re saving the cash to buy a second car later this year, so it’s only temporary.
Emergency Fund: Up $14.20. This is from some automatic transfers and interest. $2,000 is my comfortable spot for the emergency fund right now, but later on I would like to get it up to $5,000. All in good time.
Savings: Up $4,792.42. This is a total for the following accounts:
- Health & Dental Fund
- Puppy Expenses
- Car Expenses
- Travel Fund
- Europe Trip
- Christmas 2012
- START account at US Bank
- House Fund
We got the last installment of our house warming gift from my parents, plus our tax refund. There were also some automatic transfers set-up, but aside from that—not much intentional saving. Like 98% of this went straight into our car expenses account, since that’s where we are saving the money for the second car.
401K: Down $84.22. You win some, you lose some. We didn’t contribute much, probably around $40, so it’s not that much of a loss.
Investments: Up $602.06. Most of this is because I wasn’t paying attention when I did last month’s update. I had transferred some of my personal savings over to my investment account to buy some stocks and forgot to include it. I think they’re actually down a little bit, but I did sell some others off and bought more of the new one. Plus, there was a little bit of dividend income.
Roth IRA: Up $54.14. We only added $50 this last month to our Roth IRA, so that means it went up a little bit. Yay! Small wins are better than nothing.
Pirates Gold: Stagnant. I really hate this area not increasing each month. Even if it only went up a dollar, that would be something. I would just run to the bank and a grab a couple of gold dollars, but I don’t get out much.
Car: Up $149.00. Silly car.
House: No change.
Liabilities: (Mortgage) Down $265.17. It’s so hard to be patient with this since we’re not planning to kill our mortgage. I hate owing more than the house is worth, even if it’s only a small amount compared to other people. Oh well, it’ll get there.
So, how did your Net Worth turn out this month?
Have you done it yet???
