I Have More Money Than I've Ever Had in My Life!

How often can you say that? My goal is to be able to say it every month, and the last few months, I haven't been able to do so. But although I haven't yet pulled together a full monthly wrap-up, my net worth at the end of April was around $373,000, which is higher than it's ever been. It's a nice feeling!

Congratulations! Was there one thing in particular that made that goal possible?

I think a lot of it was just some recovery in my investment accounts, but I'll try to post more details on April savings/expenses soon.

So as long as you don't pinch so hard that you regret your frugality, putting off family and excessive savings. Life has a way of moving fast and I've known a few people who never have a chance to enjoy life. (BTW ... I don't mean "you personally" but those excessively admiring your conservative money management ... from what I read you do seem to enjoy life too)
