This bull market just keeps rolling merrily along, doesn’t it? My net worth has increased by $12,000 in two months (and that doesn’t include any change to my home value). I’d like to say that I’m pleased, but all of this up, up, up must eventually come down. Anticipation of that is keeping me from gleefully running naked down my street. But I won’t take any action. When prices rise, my money buys less; when they fall, it buys more. I keep reminding myself to leave it all alone and let time do it’s thang.
In other news, I’m anxiously awaiting a change to my employer 401k due to our acquisition last year. Word on the street that my measly 2% match will jump up to more than 4%! Hooray for that happening in April.
I also received a tax refund this week! Majority of it is being used to pay the second installment of my annual property taxes. Terribly sensible, I know. But that prevents me from drawing from my savings account as I build it back up after my New Years trip to Thailand and upcoming jaunt to Italy. That makes my checking account inflated at the moment (which is not reflected below). That excess will be transferred into my Roth IRA or Salem Five this month.
Home value: $389,392
Current net worth: $365,362
