Well, November came, went, and how I’m updating my net worth. Why? Because.
It was not an overly interesting month per se. Loans were paid down including $2500 of a $10000 personal loan. It always fees nice to retire debt! I also began investing in my corporate ESPP (Employee Stock Purchase Plan) where my employer matches 50% of up to 6% of my base salary. Since I’m married, but without children, it will not be a problem for me to invest 6% of my income each month. I’m happy, the matching funds work out to almost 2 weeks pay over a year.
Those are the only highlights with the exception of some accounts receivable due to my wife and myself for work-related trips we took in October/November.
Overall, it was a good month with my net worth increasing 4.6%, or $7076 from $153k to $160k. It would be interesting to work current housing prices into the fold, however, that data isn’t as easily available in Canada as the US.
