A Year of Net Worth Tracking

A Year of Net Worth Tracking

On October 1, 2015, I created a spreadsheet for tracking our net worth broken out by our various accounts. While Mint has been tracking our technical net worth since Kyle and I got married and combined our finances, I consider our true net worth to be slightly different, and those differences were large enough last fall that I wanted a separate place to keep track.   (Our “technical” net worth is all our monetary assets minus all … Read entire article »

November 2014 Money Puddle and Spending Report

November 2014 Money Puddle and Spending Report

This was an INCREDIBLE month in terms of spending.

What’s the Point of Calculating Net Worth?

What’s the Point of Calculating Net Worth?

I enjoy reading other PF bloggers’ monthly reports on their net worth progress, whether they use real numbers or percentage increases.  I haven’t so far written a net worth post or series for us and as of now I don’t plan to.  I just don’t see how it would be interesting or informative in our situation.  So I’ll bore you with one post instead of with a series.   Here are the components that contribute to our … Read entire article »
