Our networth as of today is $-42,283. I messed up the Networth IQ entry. Thus, our improvement isn’t showing on the graph. However, in according to Microsoft Money, our networth in October was sitting at $-42,570. So, we made a $287 improvement. It’s nothing big, but it’s a start.
Here’s a list of things that we did to increase out networth by $287.
- Used envelope system for groceries and dining out. We went from spending $400 a month on groceries and cosmetics to $250.
- Opened an ING Direct account and got a $25 sign up bonus.
- Opened a Sharebuilder account and received $50 sign up bonus.
I think it also helped that our mutual funds did really well this past month. However, if today’s any indication of things to come, our success in the market might be taking a break.
