New year, new job… but how’s it all shaping up? Let’s take a look!
Change: +$4,294 or +36.76%
January Net Worth: $15,975
A nice (very nice!) change there. But, I don’t expect the trend to continue at quite such a speedy way. This month, there were a lot of boosts to my accounts from the start of the year (matching deposits into retirement accounts), whereas next month, I expect to be shelling out for at least one big expenditure: a new computer. And not just any old computer — I’m pimping out the best built-from-scratch computer I can afford in order to handle the livestream broadcast for my charity fundraising group, the U-Pick Video Game Marathon for Charity.
Not that, you know, I won’t use the new computer for other things than charity fundraisers. It’ll replace my seriously aging laptop, and I will use it’s awesome power to handle new video games to… play lots of new video games. Or at least, work through the ridiculous backlog of Steam games I’ve picked up during Steam sales and Humble Bundles.
But anyway, my husband and I have been saving up for new computers for a while now. In December we bought him a new Chromebook with some of the money in the “New Computers” savings account, and this month, we’ll be spending the rest building our ridiculous gaming/streaming rig. Success!
What savings goal are you looking forward to reaching, so that you can finally buy, build, or make what you’ve been saving for? Let me know in the comments, below!
