My apologies in advance… this month’s net worth update isn’t terribly exciting!
Change: -$80 or -0.21 %
Down, but not too terribly much. It’s to be expected, since I’m still (yes, still) looking for a job and living off of freelance income from “side hustles” such as this blog, and knitting. Despite the small downturn (look how tiny it looks on the graph!), here are the upsides:
Savings: Untouched! I still have not broken into my Getting Established fund or my emergency fund for anything! In fact, my savings has grown; I met all of my current savings targets for the month. Next month will be a different story — I hope to still meet my savings targets, but since I’m getting close to “The Big Move,” I anticipate at least a few withdrawals from my Getting Established fund… since that’s what it’s there for!
Student Loans: Down! The balance is only down by $10, but that’s much more encouraging than last month, when it grew by $53. Even slow progress is progress! But I think this might be false progress, and the account just hasn’t updated the interest on my loan properly. I’ll take the small wins for now, anyway!
