Last month, our Net Worth increased by $993.71. This month’s increase is mostly due to the addition of Operation SUV, not that we haven’t been working hard to increase our Net Worth—it just takes time. Still, our Net Worth is seeing a $2,998.68 increase this month, so that’s pretty cool.
Emergency Fund: Down $3.31. I have been transferring anything over $1,000 to our other savings account to help us reach one of our financial goals for 2011. Since the Emergency Fund has already reached $1,000 we’re working on the other accounts for now—later we’ll work on increasing this though.
Savings: up $340.61. Awesome! Sometimes I don’t know how we’re able to do this and other times I think we should be saving more. But I am still very excited about the increase in our savings accounts this month.
401K: Down $146.79. Plus all the money we put in there this last month. I guess it’s not so bad when you compare it to how much others have lost. Must think long-term, it sure is hard sometimes. I have some interesting 401k new coming soon, so keep your eyes peeled.
Betterment: up $40.02. We did contribute $40.00 to our Betterment account this month. Still, I’d much rather earn 2¢ than lose any. We are focusing more on the long-term with this account anyway, so little bits here and there don’t really mean that much. We’ll see what happens in 5 years or so.
Roth IRA: Up $75.01. I finally transferred the money from our lame, old Roth IRA into the new one. I also contributed $75 in August, but I’m not sure where the penny came from…? I need to get our Roth IRA up to like $1,000 or something before I can start investing—I think I also need automatic contributions of $50 a month or more. I’ll check into all that once I start getting close.
Pirates Gold: Up $11.00. I had taken over the master bedroom closet for my office and this last week I moved out to the bedroom. In this crazy, tight-spaced (how the h*ll did we even do that?) move, I found 11 more gold dollars. I haven’t really been getting these lately and it’s been pretty sad, so I was very pleased to find these lurkers in the old office/master bedroom closet.
Operation SUV: I had originally planned to keep this money out of the Net Worth, but ♥my honey♥ brought me to my senses. He said that even though I have it set aside for a specific purpose, it’s still there and if need be, can be used in other places. He’s right, I know. So from now on, it will be included in my updates every month. It sure gives this month a nice boost.
Car: Down $980.00. $hit! I have no idea how that happened but it’s not that bad since we plan on keeping it anyway. Kelly Blue Book is really weird sometimes. I should have seen this one coming though. 😉
Evil Credit Card: Down 249.03. Woooo hooooo! It’s getting lower, I can’t wait until it’s all paid off.
So, how did your Net Worth turn out this month? Have you done it yet???
