I’m a few days early on my net worth this month. Mainly because I wanted to get something posted today, and calculating my net worth was something quick and easy. And, being the end of the week, a few days really isn’t going to make much of a difference.
Overall, May was a pretty good month. I’m down $1,748 overall. But then, I spent $3,500 on remodeling (the bathroom, plus a few other projects). And big bucks Mother’s Day weekend. Plus I’ve spent a couple hundred bucks already on plants and mulch for the house. Life is pretty much going to guarantee that there will be ups and downs in my net worth. So long as the overall trend is going forward, I’ll be a happy camper!
I don’t foresee any big changes coming up next month. More money will definitely be spent on the house, but it should be in smaller chunks. Meaning the overall trend should start heading up for a while. Yay! I have to admit, I’ve become a bit obsessive about calculating my net worth; I’ve run the numbers at least once a week for the past month. Yeah, I probably should stop that. I’m also running my debt payoff numbers fairly frequently as well. Nothing changes much week to week, but I find it oddly comforting to see it all in print. I know, I’m weird!
