In the month of January, my net worth dropped 1.92%. Not really what I wanted to see, especially as I’m updating this while fighting what I think is the beginning of a nasty cold.
Looking at the details, it looks like it’s mostly my investments that dropped, specifically retirement. Conveniently, I’m not retiring for 30 years or so, so it’s a loss that’s easy enough to shrug off right now. Or at least, that’s what I’m telling myself. In terms of cash, I just about broke even, which isn’t too bad, though I would have liked to put a bit more cash into my savings. February should be a much less expensive month, unless I buy plane tickets for one of the two trips I’m planning later this year.
Going to pick the contest winners today, so watch for an update!
