I had some minor computer trouble and had replace my computer in June, so the Jun net worth report was a bit skewed. I also did spend a chunk of my assets from my Ally savings on the AirBnB reservation for our August trip and the for the computer. I am also in the process of switching to one checking account (Simple) so I can track my check a lot easier that way. I did pay of some larger chunks of debt, however my net worth went more negative due to the large spending amounts from the computer and reservation.
I believe I have the tools I need (for free) to continue my net worth reports using Google Sheets instead of Excel since I don’t have Office access anymore. I don’t really have much to mention even though the “last month’s” numbers are from May 2017 and for June I used an estimated net worth via Personal Capital. I did switch from my Chase Credit card to Fidelity (left it open, just put the card away and not for use). I also wanted to boost up the IRA, but am going to back off and hit the debt a bit harder. I got my goal for ETF (exchange traded fund shares) and I’m getting very agitated with the Chase Student loan. I ended up in June putting over $500 on it and will try again to do that in August/September if overtime keeps flowing and we strap down on our vacation.
I do enjoy how well the 401(k) is taking off. It’s almost able to set aside more money a month than I can. It two months it can almost make a rent payment or a single car payment (equivalent, I refuse to pull money out of retirement accounts).
Here’s how the chart looks as I’m reaching closer to a 0 net worth:
