Net Worth Update: February 2014

Net Worth Update: February 2014

Prepare yourself for a lot of exclamation points, bold text, italics, and maybe even some ALL CAPS… because this is the most exciting Net Worth update in Poorer Than You history, and I’m super stoked about it. So forget about this intro… LET’S GET TO IT!!! Change: +$7,456 or +136.33% February Net Worth: $1,987 YOU […]

Net Worth Update: January 2014

Net Worth Update: January 2014

I’m officially declaring this “The Most Topsy-Turvy Month Ever.” Why? Because even though the worth of my assets went down in several key categories, the reasons those decreased were not bad; and even though my total net worth increased this month, the reason it did so is bad. Welcome to Bizarro World, folks! Change: +$1,117 […]

Net Worth Update: December 2013

Net Worth Update: December 2013

HERPY DEW BEER! (Translation: Happy New Year!) It’s been a whirlwind December (as it usually is), so I can hardly believe that it’s time for this month end/year end update already! You might remember from November’s update that I was worried about December possibly (probably!) being a down month. Let’s check in and see if […]

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 we’re […]

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 […]
