Met Net Worth Unofficial Goal Surprise !

December 22nd, 2009 at 05:08 am

Inspired by Ceejay74, I tallied up my December 09 Net Worth.

Now I wasn't going to bother doing a December Net Worth and leave it to January as I've been stupid with my money at times this month and have had to take 776 back out of my savings to keep me from going overdrawn.

But I did it anyway... and it's up !! 10880 in fact ! So I've broken the 10,000 barrier for the first time in my life ! :-)

My retirement savings and shares in my employer's company were both up very significantly... I presume there must be a stock market bounce going on at the moment.

I've settled on depreciating my car by 100 euro a month so in 4 yrs it will be at zero (but still being driven by me hopefully !).

When I totted it up, I couldn't help feeling "Well, it would be 11,500 if I didn't take that 776 out "... but I'm still very happy - thanks to the stock market tho... which I realise could be down next month.. Ah well... Cest la Vie !

By the way, my unofficial Net Worth Goal is to increase it by 10,000 every year until I'm 40. So 20,000 by December 2010, 30,000 by December 2011.. etc etc

It's unofficial cause I've kinda given up on having financial goals - I like the idea of just doing the right things financially and lifestyle-wise and not punishing myself for small trip-ups... as long as I'm heading in the right direction... but it IS useful to have a target to aim for... God - I can be really contradictory !! lol

    Wow, that's great! See, you're ahead of my individual net worth. Smile And look where you came from December of last year--we both went from negative to positive over the course of this year, which is a really big milestone (at least psychologically)!

    Ceejay - we rock !

    Yeah... you're right.. going from negative to positive IS a big milestone... like you have your head above water kind of..

    10,000 is a big milestone too... just the sound of it.. ten T H O U S A N D... lol... Its substantial enough not to be affected by a drunken night on the town (which is good in my case)

    And I know you're going to hot on my heels breaking that barrier !! :-) I'll keep an eye out for it !
