I told myself I’d be doing these updates monthly. Ha! Luckily, my networth has been dancing around the same number since April, mostly due to fluctuations in the stock market. Our cash accounts grew nicely, but since we have double that amount in retirement accounts, it doesn’t do much to staunch the bleeding.
We did manage to meet a new milestone, and that is that we’ve now exceeded 1/3rd of a million dollars in net worth! The only (First World) problem with that is that our normal deposits, even for a good month, just don’t affect that number much. Going from $50,000 to $60,000 sounds like a much bigger deal than going from $340,000 to $350,000, even though the amount increase is the same.
Note that these are joint values (i.e. they include assets from both my and Chad’s accounts). They do not include money from rotating (i.e. checking) accounts or credit cards, and they also do not include the small personal savings accounts that Chad and I keep for ourselves.
How did you do this year?
