Because Matthew and I have big goals.
Okay, okay, the longer answer is we want to pay off our debt, and have the freedom to retire early. Tracking our net worth each month is a great way to see if we’re on track, keep us accountable, and hopefully it inspires at least one person to do the same (or you can just be nosy and peep our net worth, that’s okay too!).
Roth IRA (Brittney):
Yeah I’m very behind on contributing to my retirement account. I had a few thousand dollars saved up years ago, but ended up taking the money out and blowing it on random things – yeah not one of my proudest moments.
Disney Stock (1 Share):
I just found out about this one recently, Matthew’s uncle got him a share of Disney stock when he was a baby. We haven’t quite gotten around to adding the stock to his investment account, which is why it’s on it’s own line.
Matthew started his current job back in October (2018), so this is just 4ish months of contributions which is good. I think he currently contributes 3-4% and gets some profit sharing money at the end of the year. I’d like to bump up his contributions to 10%.
Roth IRA (Matthew)
Total Assets: $152,515.15
Debt & Liabilities:
Best Buy Store Card:
Matthew opened up a Best Buy store card, and purchased a washer, a dryer, and a TV for our new condo. There’s no interest if the balance is paid off within 18 months. We’ve been paying $150/month on the card.
Credit Cards (Brittney):
Student Loan (Brittney):
Looking back we shouldn’t have gotten a mortgage, we should have just rented for awhile while we paid off debt, and got our emergency fund together, but here we are. It’s a 30-year mortgage but I’d like to try and pay this off a lot quicker than that.
