October Net Worth Snapshot...

It seems as though all of the "financial" moons have aligned to make this one of our best net worth increases to date. Our net worth has increased by a record 5.57% or $6,332.56 for a total of $119,927.21. To tell you the truth, at first thought, I don't really know how we did it. It's probably several factors that happen to fit well together at this point in time. First off, I've started to add all of the small stuff into our net worth, like any cash we may have in our wallets, money in the change jar, uncashed checks, etc. It may not be much, but every little bit counts.

Ah, now I remember, how can I forget? I busted my butt working some overtime this month, and it looks like that really helped. Hm, let's see, we finally received our "New Jersey FAIR home owner rebate" just in time to be calculated. Received a little extra chunk of change from selling on half.com and some ad space on the blog. There's also been a slight increase in the retiremtent accounts due to the market doing pretty well. It seems now that the summer is over, we've generally have been spending less money on eating out, vacationing, parties, etc. It seems the fat check I wrote for a recent wedding hasn't been cashed yet, and the maintenance fee bill for our condo is running late. Again, we didn't have to pay any auto insurance premiums this month, as well as my wife's cell phone bill. So, overall a great month. Slowly but surely, climbing the financial ladder...

Congrats on the healthy net worth rise. With that kind of rise you are looking at something like a 65% increase annually !! :)

Seems like a good month for most PFbloggers.

Thanks. I never really did any type of net worth projections, but that sounds pretty nice.
