Net Worth History

Below is a brief history of my/our net worth since I started to calculate it back in June ’08. 

As you can see in June ’08 I started out at around $35,000, which stayed pretty steady until Sept ’08 when two things happened.  We had the free for all in the stock market and I got engaged.  There was another big drop in January ’09 due to me dropping the value of my condo $10,000 and paying for wedding stuff.  The big spike between April ’09 and May ’09 was caused by several things.  1) I got married on May 16th which caused “my” net worth to become “our” net worth. J  2) I became fully vested in my employer’s pension plan.  3) The recovery of the stock market.

Ever since the wedding our net worth has been on an upward swing. As for goals on our net worth, we do not have any per say.  But it is fun to track your progress and exciting to see that your net worth does increase when your goals are being achieved.

 Below are past monthly net worth updates broken into detail.  I hope to do old ones in the future.

In case you do not know how to calculate your net worth it is simply your assets (things that you own that are valuable) less your liabilities (debts you owe).  For our net worth we do not include the value of our cars.  Even though we have two cars paid in full we do not include them simply because it is an asset that goes down in value.
