Net Worth Update: October 2016

Net Worth Update: October 2016

Another Halloween has come and gone, and we’ve learned that we moved into yet another apartment that doesn’t get any trick-or-treaters. Oh well – more double-chocolate brownies for us! (Packaged brownies, not homemade – obviously.) But with Halloween under our belts (quite literally, now that we’ve broken into the candy), it’s time to run the […]

Net Worth Update: September 2016 (The End of an Era)

Net Worth Update: September 2016 (The End of an Era)

I had been a “20-something personal finance blogger,” starting with the day I dropped out of film school at age 20 and started this blog, up until now… this will be my very first update as a “30-something personal finance blogger,” I suppose. So, let’s see what the net worth of a newly-minted 30-year-old who […]

Net Worth Update: August 2016

Net Worth Update: August 2016

I’ve never been much of one for hot weather (I’m from the frozen north originally, after all), but during this record-breakingly hot August in northern Virginia, I noticed something: I have more tolerance for it than the dudes in my life who grew up in this region. What’s with that? Well, let’s see what my […]

Net Worth Update: July 2016

Net Worth Update: July 2016

If you (or I) thought June was craaaaazy, it was nothing compared to July. At the very end of June, we found an apartment we liked and put in application to take possession of it on July 1st… and found out we’d been approved just in time to sign the lease on July 1st. We […]

Net Worth Update: April 2016

Net Worth Update: April 2016

April showers bring May…. more showers. I’m pretty sure that’s how the saying goes, at least according to the weather in Northern Virginia so far. The constant rain has been sort of a doozy, which ties in nicely to this month’s net worth & financial update… Change: ($1,372) or -4.76% April Net Worth Total: $27,448 […]

Net Worth Update: March 2016

Net Worth Update: March 2016

Yes, I indulged myself in a little April Fool’s Day prankery yesterday – sorry if I got anyone’s hopes up too high about my bright future in a tiny house! It would have made for a great series on the blog here, that’s for sure. But don’t worry: I actually do have a few fun […]

Net Worth Update: February 2016

Net Worth Update: February 2016

Happy Super Tuesday! It’s voting day for the primary elections here in Virginia, so I’ve got to fire this update off fast and then get myself to the voting booth. That’s okay though, because there’s only one major story about what happened to my net worth in February: taxes. Change: ($548) or -2.31 % February […]

Net Worth Update: November 2015 – January 2016

Net Worth Update: November 2015 – January 2016

New Year, new update! It’s a really exciting time here at Poorer Than You, and I can’t wait to- OMFG WHAT IS THAT GRAPH DOING?!? So November was down, but by such a small amount that I can comfortably call it “flat.” And I anticipated a “down” month anyway: November has one of those pesky […]
