Net Worth Update February 2019

I have been keeping track of my net worth and sharing my gains and losses on here for years.  Honestly, I can't believe how long it took me to start tracking my net worth.  I am not sure how many people actually track their assets and debts outside of the personal finance world, but I am sure that if more people did the state of America's finances would be in a better place. Thoughts Before Calculating: I usually have a feeling as to how my family has done over the past month.  The past few updates were rough mainly due to end of year spending and the atrocious [...]

Net Worth Update December 2018

I first started tracking my net worth and then sharing my gains and loses way back in January 2013.  I absolutely regret not starting earlier, especially when this site was started a few years prior! I believe that every adult would benefit from seeing how their short term personal finance decisions are playing out over the course of a month, months or years, and the easiest way to do that is with a net worth statement. Thoughts before calculating: I usually have a feeling of how my net worth has performed for the prior month.  Usually it is based on market performance [...]

November 2018 Net Worth Update

Every month for the past few years I have calculated my net worth and shared the ups and downs with whoever would like to take a peak into see how I have done.  I truly believe that if more people actually did this monthly ritual our country's personal finances (as a whole) would be in a much better spot.  There is something therapeutic and scary about calculating your net worth, having to be accountable to even just yourself can do wonders for behavioral finance. My thoughts Before Calculating my Net Worth:  I usually have a feeling about how I have done the [...]

September 2018 Net Worth Update

I can't believe summer is coming to an end! With another month in the books it is time to update my net worth spreadsheet. Thoughts before I calculate my net worth: I usually have a feeling as to how I did with regard to my net worth.  I think this month is going to be an up month.  I don't think it is based on anything The Wife and I have done differently, rather, the market has been on a tear and my net worth is extremely correlated to the market. My Net Worth Calculation My Assets My assets are pretty simple: [...]

Net Worth Update August 2018

With another month in the books I get the pleasure of updating my net worth spreadsheet and then sharing how I have done month over month and year to date. Thoughts before I calculate my net worth: I usually have a feeling as to how I did with regard to my net worth.  I think this month is going to be a down month.  We had a couple of unexpected bills (my dog passing was $800 on credit card that I just was not expecting), and just overall The Wife and I have been spending a lot with my online income decreasing [...]
