Another positive month! My net worth went up 0.66% this month. Not much, but it’s positive movement. I like that sort of progress. This month’s increases were mostly my investments. My cash accounts stayed pretty much the same. Of course, that’s with a contribution to my Roth IRA, so some of the money was moving from cash accounts into investments. Either way, it was a fairly expensive month, which is something I’m hoping to change this month.
I do have a set of plane tickets to buy either this month or next, so there’s a solid upcoming expense, and I’ve got an insurance bill coming, so there are some big expenses on the horizon, but I’m ready for them.
It’s such a great feeling to watch my retirement accounts grow, especially my Roth IRA, which took a huge hit in 2008. My overall return on that account is still -27%, but that’s much better than it was, and things seem to be moving in the right direction again. Besides, I’m buying low! That’s what’s important.
