Hello fellow money people!
I’m no longer going to do a detailed net worth breakdown. I do still want to keep track of it so I will be doing that and will share the number and changes each month to motivate myself to keep going.
Current Net Worth: $10,391
Net Worth Change: +$3,526 (since April 2013)
In the last 5 months I’ve managed to increase my net worth by over $3,500! That’s impressive to me considering most of that time I felt like I was floundering and pushing myself into major debt. Really I spent too much but I did also pay off my student loans and contribute to my Roth IRA and do other positive financial moves. All in all I’m happy with that progress. And definitely excited to be back over $10,000 net worth!
I’m trying to set up a realistic budget for myself to save some money and still have a bit of fun and spend. The following is my budget for the month with a focus on saving everything not budgeted here.
September 2013 Goals
Inspired by Krystal’s Sepetember goals I decided to try setting some of my own this month.
- Run 50 miles. It seems like a lot when I type it out but this is very achievable if I’m running 3 miles 4 times a week as I’ve been doing. I really want to keep track of my miles this month for the first time and hit this.
- Earn $250 in extra income. I’ve neglected side income for a while but this is an area that needs to be ramped back up. I plan to do any job possible this month and save it all toward some very big goals I have in mind. I wanted to start slow with the number so that it felt achievable. I know I can do this!
- Eat at the office every day. I really want to cut down on how much money I spend on lunches this month. My only exception to this will be when my company or someone else buys my lunch. If I have to buy I’m staying in.
Have a great September!
