$2,000. That’s the exact amount that my net worth fell in 2007. Sort of creepy, isn’t it – getting that nice, perfect, round number? After a year of scrimping, saving, careful budgeting, tracking my spending, and (of course) blogging, my net worth dropped by exactly $2,000.
And I’m quite happy with it.
The truth is, my net worth dropped by only $2,000. With new student loans and some serious cash dropped on car repair, I’m quite happy with the progress I’ve made – even if it is “one step forward, two steps back.” The truth is that I would be much worse off if I hadn’t paid strict attention to things this last year.
Yet, there were several outside factors that helped – especially family members helping me out as birthday and Christmas presents. Repeating this “success” will not be easy, but….
My goal for 2008 is to do as well, or better than, 2007. In other words, to have my net worth fall by no more than $2,000.
Stick with me guys, this is gonna be an interesting year.
