Up is a great direction, and I’m happy to report that my net worth has increased over the last month by $9,500!
Here are the numbers broken down:
Assets increase: $6,214.65
Debt decrease: $3,277.07
Net increase: $9,491.72
How did I do it?
My 401k’s are performing nicely, and the real estate value of my home, according to Zillow, is still heading up. That, along with my debt decreasing steadily every month, is keeping my net worth heading in a positive direction.
I can’t imagine this kind of growth will continue over the next year, but if it does I should easily see another $100,000 increase.
I’m getting weary, though. Working this many hours every week is taking it’s toll. Thank goodness, my motivation is still high, so I’ll keep plugging away to aggressively pay down my Parent PLUS loans.
