February 1st 2016 Net Worth Snapshot



We are $6,524.55 up from last month's net worth(only liquid cash/investments, as I don't count housing or car values).  Over $2300K of that if due to savings put away in January from our household accounts.  The other almost $4200K is from our retirement/investment account gains.

We are also $102K up from one year ago, the January 1st of 2015 net worth snapshot.

Once Hubs retires I will miss these little monthly look backs, when we move from acquisition mode with money to spend-down mode. ;-)

    1. True spending is more fun but not when you are worried that the money will run out before you run out. lolz

  2. Sluggy, you rock! Too bad you can't put your expertise to helping some needy folks in your area. I could set you up with several folks who need budgeting help. Usually they can't even tell you how much they make so they need help. So many people don't know how to save a buck. I always tell my clients just 2 ways- make more or spend less but that is so simplistic! One of my guys just got a part time job and was already telling me he wanted to buy a new shirt and pants!!! NOOO I told him- wait until you have saved some money. He needs a Sluggy!

    1. Well it does boil down to make more and/or spend less, doesn't it?
      I've found tho that people want a magic bullet when it comes to budgeting and there are no magic bullets, just self-control and patience.
      I tried helping BIL w/a budget back a few years when he was in dire straits. That didn't go too well as he didn't want someone else telling him how to spend his money. lolz

      I'd gladly advise someone who wanted and welcomed the help!
