With the middle of the month comes the update to my net worth. Last month, I was very happy to break even. This month that would have been a pipe dream. With the stock market dropping, my retirement accounts nearly dropped to less than $100,000 in value. In total, my net worth dropped roughly $4,500 to finish at $208,683.
Aside from that equity drop, which I can do little about, my finances were break even. I have taken made good strides in frugal living over the last month. I’ve realized that on a day-to-day basis, I typically have little or need to spend money. I will be reviewing my necessary expenses, soon, but at this point my alternative income covers that.
In a bit of a surprise move, I’m might take a part time job sometime soon. I’m hoping to work only 20 hours a week – if I find the right situation. I will still focus on this blog and other online ventures, but hopefully future month’s net worth will be helped by this potential job.
