Thanks in large part to Hub's bonus, our net worth increased $31,479.11 from February 1st.
Of course this accounts for a decrease of $1,735.18 from January 1st to February 1st(temporary setback), so really it's an $29,743.93 increase since January 1st.
We don't include the college funds or the value of our home in our net worth calculations, mainly because the college monies aren't going to be spent on our retirement and the home is not a liquid asset since we have to have somewhere to live.
Retirement funds are up $8759.72 since January 1st as well. Not increasing very much since we moved them out of riskier/volatile funds, as we are too close to retirement to chance losing money.
Otherwise we'd be seeing better gains here.
With only a few years until retirement we are closing in on the 1 million $ mark proving once again, it pays to not spend all your money on the here and now.
Plus it pays to have a really healthy income as well and a wife who sees value in saving money whenever/wherever possible, even when spending on "life". ;-)
So don't forget to FEED YOUR PIG each and every month.
Don't let her/him waste away from financial malnutrition.
