Pre Spring ’21 Net Worth Check In

May Your Assets Be Like Tribbles

I am fully vaccinated and feeling financially frisky!

The blog has been on life support putting out posts mostly about my side interests of Prepping and Heathenism. I felt it was time to put out some FIRE orientated posts.

True be told I recently became unhappy at my job. (Nobody leaves a bad job, they leave a bad boss). It had me crunching my numbers. SO close to FU money, but I need a few more pieces of the puzzle to fall into place.

2 more buildings and I am out!

P.S. Humblebrag – My oldest did so well on his ACT (9th grader) that I may have to rethink how much money we have set aside for his education.

Tracking your own net worth is perhaps the second most important thing you can do to improve your financial picture. Budgeting your expenses to see where the money goes is probably still number one.

Budgeting is like paying attention to ball game while tracking net worth is like paying attention to the baseball season.

Months can goes up or down, you need a longer picture to evaluate your progress. You are either bringing in more money than you’re spending or you are losing money each month. Tracking Net Worth is easy, useful, and addictive.

Don’t Let Perfect be the enemy of Good.

  1. So is your FI timeline still two years away or accelerate it? I wish I was close to FI. Still have 5-8 years to go, but I have had a 1 million dollar turn around in 8 years. Congrats on your success.
