Net Worth Update: November 2013

Net Worth Update: November 2013

Happy Holidays! I’m in full-on holiday-crazy mode at work, my Christmas tree is up and decorated at home, and I’ve got an 18-pound turkey in my freezer (hey, it was $0.59/pound!), so we’re definitely due for an update on how my Net Worth came out in November. Change: +$2,288 or +20.77% November Net Worth: -$8,728 […]

Net Worth Update: September-October 2013

Net Worth Update: September-October 2013

The past two months have been rough for me – financially, and otherwise. I had to move under not-very-ideal circumstances, and money for the move itself was tight. As August came to a close, I made a prediction that my net worth could go down as much as $2000 total because of the ordeal. Here’s […]

Net Worth Update: April-August 2013

Net Worth Update: April-August 2013

First, a correction: in the last update, I left off one little digit while calculating my net worth, and the final number came out totally wrong. Instead of what I reported, March really looked like this: +$2,148 or +12.81%. Ahem – sorry about that, folks. Now back to our irregularly-scheduled catch-up update! April: +$1,378 or […]

Net Worth Update: March 2013

Net Worth Update: March 2013

Happy April Fools Day yesterday! Sorry about misleading you – Mortimer is completely fictional, and there is no new author coming to PoorerThanYou at this time. You’re stuck with just me, for now! 😛 If you’d like to see my pranks from years past, follow these links: April Fools 2010 April Fools 2009 Now that […]

Net Worth Update: December 2012 – February 2013

Net Worth Update: December 2012 – February 2013

The world didn’t end and I somehow entered my 27th year more-or-less unscathed. So how did the financials stack up, when 2012 was all said and done? (And 2013 is already 1/6th of the way done! Egads!) December: +$832 +3.94% January: +$1,462 +7.20% February: +$2,072 +11.00% That, my friends, is what I call three productive […]

Net Worth Update: November 2012

Net Worth Update: November 2012

I’ve been testing out some new money tactics, with the goal of getting my net worth up to $0 by September 2014. But November, the month of a big charity event and the lead-up to Christmas, is a tough place to start. How am I doing? Change: +$379 or +1.76% Upwards! But not upwards “enough” […]

Net Worth Update: October 2012

Net Worth Update: October 2012

This month, I pulled my credit report to review it. You know, from AnnualCreditReport.com (the only free authorized source), like you’re supposed to do every four months or so. I’m happy to report there are no issues, but it started the ball rolling on something for me. A challenge, you might say. But first, the […]

Net Worth Update: September 2012

Net Worth Update: September 2012

It’s been a while since we checked in on my personal net worth progress, and there’s been a bit of excitement these past months – so it’s about time I got with the sharing, don’t you think? February: +$2,019 or 7.52% March:  +$3,039 or 12.24% April: +$445 or 2.04% May: -$393 or -1.84% June: +$359 […]

Net Worth Update: January 2012

Net Worth Update: January 2012

You know, I can remember being in ninth grade Global History class, learning about the Mayan calendar and the urban legends about the end of the world, and thinking “Gosh, in 2012, I’ll be 25, turning 26! I’ll be a real adult by then!” Ten years later, I’m figuring out that being 25 and being […]

Net Worth Update: December 2011

Net Worth Update: December 2011

Hey guys! So remember that time I stopped writing for more than six months? That was funny, right? Hahahaha… ha… ha. Sorry about that. Let’s get back to business. Change (from the last update in April): +$2323 or +8.63 % That’s a pretty respectable climb (more than 1% per month!) in numbers, but the graph […]
