/Personal Situation

I started my personal finance blog, myjourneytomillions, to share my personal financial situation in an anonymous way.  Sometimes I will highlight things that are going on in my  life that are not financial in nature.  In addition, in this category I share all my net worth updates.

My Last Night in my Second Home

Well after a number of housing updates it is finally the night before we move out of our second home.  This home has been amazing to my family for the past six and a half years.  We have become part of a community I didn't know was possible on Long Island.  I tell anyone that will listen about the amazing town we live in.  It is the only home that my 4 year old daughter has known and I am pretty sure it is the only home that my 8 year old son remembers (although he swears he remembers our old place, [...]

August 2019 Net Worth Update

July was not that crazy of a month but my world is about to turn upside down in August.  We are: Buying a new house - The closing costs in New York are infuriating, plus the moving costs, painting, flooring, etc., etc., etc. Going on at least 3 trips that I know of - camping, something for my father in law's birthday, and possibly something for my mother I may be selling a piece of my current home to two investors (a close buddy and brother) - I haven't talked a lot about this yet, but I am in talks with them to [...]

Thinking about Paying off Low Interesting Debt!

With the upcoming home purchase (without a home sale on the other side), I have really been giving a lot of thought to my monthly nut.  An unhealthy amount.  Then I came up with an idea described in excruciating detail below. My Increased Monthly Nut I believe that most adults should have at least an idea of what they spend a month.  I have been in the back office of a wealth management firm for over 12 years, and I can't begin to tell you how many people do not have any kind of clue as to what they spend each month.  Money [...]

July 2019 Net Worth Update

With all that has been happening in the past week or so, I am a bit late on my net worth post (it was calculated on 6/1 just not shared).  It has been all about the selling and buying the new house lately.  Stress levels are at a multi-year high, but when it settles down I'll provide yet another update. I usually have a feeling as to whether the month is going to be good or bad – I am pretty sure this month is going to be an up month.  Considering how nasty last month was, it'll be a welcomed increase (if it [...]

Half Year Update – Goals and Objectives for 2019

It is shocking to think about being half way done with 2019! I usually don't give much thought to a half year update, but with the craziness that has been happening with regard to buying a new home and selling our current home, I thought it may be a good idea to take a step back and re-read my 2019 goals and objectives post.  Maybe see if I can get realigned despite the balls I am currently trying to juggle. My overarching goal for 2019 was/is to get back to the basics!  It is with that lens that I take a look [...]
