Taking a break from taking down Christmas decorations to post my final 2009 Net Worth Update. In December, my Net Worth increased 1.44%. It was a great month for my investments.
2009 was a much better year than 2008. Of course, this is likely due to the market rebound, but I’m definitely pleased with the numbers. For 2009, my net worth increased 20.24%. I like those numbers. I’ve managed to put a lot of money into my retirement accounts, and they’re finally starting to grow again. I’ve also managed to put a good amount of money into savings, which makes me happy.
I do want to try to increase my savings this year. I’m really trying to tighten up my spending and plug any leaks. I’m also trying to eat healthier though, and after today’s trip to the grocery store, I’m thinking that’s going to be tough to combine with reduced spending. Of course, my health is more important than money, but it’s going to be interesting to see those bills.
Hope everyone’s having a great weekend and a great start to the new year!
