Normally, I love doing my net worth updates. Mmm… tasty numbers and graphs! But September comes with a huge chunk of dread: new student loans! So, let’s see what the damage was this time:
Change: -$2,735 or -8.08 %
Oh, the agony! My net worth chart is starting to look a lot like the stock market. Alas, not much to do about it but keep plugging away at savings. Speaking of savings, how’d that go in September?
Cash accounts: $680 increase
This category includes all of my various savings accounts for my savings snowball. Goal #1, my textbook fund, is completely full and done. Now I’m working on Goal #2, my student loan interest. Next week I’ll go into more detail on how the snowball is rolling.
All in all, I’m pretty happy with September – as long as I ignore the huge debt increase. Such is life, and it will happen again in December, for the last time. That’s right – a degree is within my grasp, and the student loans will finally stop piling up. Huzzah?
