Another month of basically ignoring the blog altogether in favor of doing lots and lots of paid work in my “free time” – let’s see how that worked out!
Change: +$2,119 or +4.39%
May Net Worth TOTAL: $50,334
Well, I’d say over two grand of progress to the ol’ bottom line is good enough!
Like last month, this is mostly just the product of working. Working from home while taking care of a six-month-old baby full time, that is. It is, as you can imagine, more than a little hectic. But I’ve prioritized my time (by not doing lots of things, including blogging) and that has worked out.
As I mentioned last month, I just hit a net worth milestone, and I’m excitedly working toward the next one: $61,099 by January 2018. That represents $100,000 in progress from my all-time net worth low back in September of 2009.
I have $10,765 left to go, which would take $1,346 per month ($1,538 if I want to get there by the end of December). That seems very do-able, if I can keep my workload up. It would be really cool to get there by September (and thus have it be $100,000 in 8 years!), but that seems like that’s really pushing it. There’s a limit to how much work I can take on, especially while the baby is so young.
I hate to say it, but… that’s it for this month. I scratched my head trying to find something else to say about this month, but alas. It’s a pretty plain and simple month – though I guess, that’s a good thing! 🙂
