My last net worth update was meh, so I’m getting back into it to make sure I’m still on track. I went from obsessively tracking everything to basically logging into Personal Capital only when I start a blog post. Even *I* have no idea how I’m doing 😀
After logging in… the 90 day change is… +$5,645. Perfectly average. Mediocre really. Let’s get into it!
As it turns out – the 60 day change is far less impressive 🙃 time to REALLY get into it.
|||August 2021||June 2021|
|Net Worth Total||74,723||$74,234|
Honestly, I’m so happy to the investments going up because this is money that I chose to invest for our future!!!! I made about $3,000 in contributions to our brokerage account and that is nothing to sneeze at.
I ALSO took $3K out to invest in a flip that a friend is doing, which is not reflected here. Hoping for a 30%+ return inshaAllah.
A breakdown of my most of my expenses
Ahhh, finally, breakdown time, aka the time I truly re-think everything in my life.
|Car||$413.25||I AM ALMOST DONE PAYING OFF MY CAR!!!!!!|
|Restaurants||$748||Up from $572 the last time I tracked this. Obviously, this is going well. Sushi, bartaco, fish taco, shake shack…starbucks… are the major offenders.|
|Job Stuff||$642||A new category for a myriad of job hunting related stuff. Mostly, this is a $500 fee to have my resume looked over.|
|Personal Care||$251||Orangetheory membership, and some other personal care purchases.|
|Clothing||$93.40||An improvement from $800+ last month.|
|Home Improvement||$519||$200+ at Ikea and another $200+ Amazon. I don’t|
|Entertainment||$41||Kindle and Hulu and Spotify and Netflix|
|Travel||$114||Uber, EZ Pass|
|Groceries||$377||Up from $290.|
|Insurance/Auto||$360||Car insurance, some car parts|
|Gas||$290||And we’re still working from home 😅|
The Life Part:
I also want to document some general life wins, because it’s easy to forget all the good things that happened:
Some wins from June:
- I TOOK A VACATION!!!!! With a friend! And while I missed Mr. H, it was truly amazing getting 10 blissful days in California with no expectations. So relaxing.
- That is it, that’s the highlight.
