I’m a little late on getting my net worth update out for October. Actually, I put together the information on October 31st, but didn’t get the chance to post it. So, how did I do in October?
October ended up being an awesome month, with $1,989 in gain to my net worth! Much better than I was expecting!
I’ll be honest, most of October wasn’t looking so great. The stock market seemed to have a pretty crazy month; In the middle of the month my 401(k) was down by hundreds of dollars, only to end the month higher than ever. My liquid assets were also a bumpy ride, with this being the first month of paying rent at the apartment. But in the end, everything worked out great.
I’m not sure how the rest of the year will work out. The Holidays are coming, so I expect November and December to be higher spending months. I’ve budgeted $800 for Holiday spending, which should be about perfect, and already have the money set aside in savings. We also have a few big expenses coming up on the house before we (hopefully) put it on the market. The money for that is set aside in savings as well. But that means my Liquid Assets are going to take a big hit before the end of the year.
Can I make my goals for 2014? I’m not sure yet. But it’s looking like there still might be a chance!
