Welcome to my monthly net worth post for March, 2016. Each month, I post a complete breakdown of my net worth, along with a chart showing the progression of my net worth since the start of this blog. Posting my net worth helps keep me accountable for what I do with my money, and motivates me to make better choices and push to reach new goals. You can see previous net worth updates here.
I was expecting March to be a nice, steady month. I didn’t have any big expenses planned. I could get back on track with my extra payments on my car loan. And, much to my surprise, things ended up working out even better than I planned!
March 2016 Net Worth:
$3,752! The stock market definitely gave my net worth a nice boost this month. And I managed to put a nice chunk of money towards my car loan. $2,364 to be exact. Some of that ($680) came from money I was sitting on last month, waiting to see how our vacation plans panned out. I squeezed the budget extra hard this month to try to pay down the loan as much as possible. I’m ready to have that loan gone, so I can focus on other things!
Net Worth Progress Chart:
I’m really happy with how March ended. And I’m really excited about the possibilities that April could hold for me. If I want my life to change, I need to start taking steps to make that happen. That means pushing myself outside my comfort zone. It will be a lot easier if I don’t have debt hanging over my head, so that’s the first step.
