Net Worth Updates

Every month I post up our latest net worth :) We’ve been doing it for over 4 years so far, and it’s REALLY helped us to keep on track and manage our money better. We started at $58,769!

Net Worth Update: $440,520.07 (Down $3,000)

Time for another net worth update! I swear we do this like every month? ;) But, unlike last month’s $10,000 gain, this time around we drop a few thousand and I promptly keep my tail between my legs and move on. Nothing too horrible like last year’s $40k drop (that was a spicy meatball!), but nothing really to get excited about either. In fact, as […]

Another day, another dollar! Or, rather, *tracking* of dollars :) And today marks that beautiful day where we get to share the ins and outs of our finances to all the voyeurs out there. Just as we did last month, and just as we’ve done every month before going all the way back to Feb, 2008. When it first clocked in at $58,769.65 :) In fact, […]

You know how we’re always so concerned about our Credit Score? The dreaded Mr. Fico who goes up and down and all around, playing with our emotions quicker than an episode of The Bachelor? Well, not to worry anymore… There’s a new score in town, folks. It’s called the “PF” Score, and here’s more from the founder: The new score that I’m proposing is called […]

Dayuum… Market shut us down this month! Said – “Try again next time, beyotch!” Haha… But that’s the way the game’s played, eh? Some months it’s up, others it’s down, down, down. What’s important is that we stick to it for the long haul and do our best to pick up some shares on these off months to get better deals! Easily done too with […]

And just like that, we wrap up another 12 months of exciting net worth tracking… That was fast! (And shows that taking stuff bit by bit pays off in the end! Literally!). If you’re not tracking your worth yet, I really recommend it. So in a year you can feel just as sexy as the rest of us do right now ;) The *habit* of […]

Happy November Net Worth Day! It’s as if we do these every single month or something? ;) Hopefully YOU’RE doing them at home though, too. Nothing’s sexier than knowing where all your money’s at, yessir… We had a pretty conservative month ourselves this time around, compared to our last one (if only every update we could climb $60,000!!). But I’ll take conservative over *losing money* […]

Last week we featured a handful of ordinary people who paid off ALL their debt (and by ordinary, of course I mean “EXTRAordinary” ;)), so this week I thought we’d focus on those who have hit the next crazy milestone: Hitting a million dollars of net worth. I’ve always thought it would be fun to interview a few millionaires and pull out all their “secrets” […]

The other week Sam from Financial Samurai stopped by my blog and left a comment in response to me selling those sites for $50k last month. He probably never thought it would inspire an entire blog post out of it, but I couldn’t get it out of my head as I found it somewhat intriguing :) Here’s what he said: “Baller. Nice to have $50K […]

Now THAT’s what I’m talking about! What What! Of course, I cheated and sold some stuff to get it up there (aka $50,000 of it is a one-off) but still – $430,000 is $430,000 ;) And if compared to the lowest month this year – January – we’re up a whopping $100,000! Which is a 30% increase in 10 months – for all you % […]
