Across the board, it seems like PF bloggers who post their net worth are seeing a loss this month. My investment and retirement accounts dropped by 7.61%. It’s a bit disheartening, to be honest, but it doesn’t mean I’m going to change anything. For the most part, my investments are designed for the long haul. I won’t need my retirement accounts for years, so I will continue my normal contributions.
I finally became eligible for the matching in my TSP this last pay period, so that was an exciting moment. It’s almost like getting a 5% raise, if you think about it. Just a 5% raise that I can’t touch for a number of years.
I showed a very solid increase in my cash accoints, which means that my plans to spend less and save more are going well. I do have a few big bills coming up this month (car insurance, for example), but because I’ve been using YNAB and setting aside a small amount of money every month in preparation for the bill, so I’m not concerned.
The plan for this month? Just keep on keeping on.
