November Net Worth

This month was quite unimpressive--an increase of just $132! There are a few reasons I have to explain this. I was sure I'd hit the 10k mark, but I missed... by four dollars!
  • Of course, the stock market uneasiness. Between me and my company, we contributed about $1000 this month, yet the overall balance increased by just $300.
  • Also, there was a slight student loan mess. I was charged some back interest which was capitalized into the loan (not by my choice!), which increased the balance by about $350. I paid some, and ended up owing $51 more than I owed this time a month ago.
  • Last, there was spending. I took two trips to visit my family, at about $100 in gas a pop. I bought my plane ticket for the holidays for another $400 or so. I also went through some personal issues and indulged in a teeny bit of retail therapy.
Next month should be great for my net worth. Even though there will be Christmas shopping, just as much driving, and a new years vacation, I get two paychecks along with a bonus equivalent to about another two paychecks.

I'm also apartment hunting and I'll probably need to come up with a hefty security deposit.... The following month will be interesting with the cross country move, but it seems my future company is covering just about everything, so that is grand.

$132 is impressive. That's at least an increase, so I call that a win. :)
