It's a bit late to be getting to this but here's a look at October's results!
My net worth at the end of October was $383,344, a decline of 1.5% from last month. The decline was entirely due to the stock market being down a bit. Also, my credit card balance was a bit high due to business expenses of over $1,000 that I haven't been reimbursed for yet. But I did okay in terms of saving some cash.
Expenses were as follows:
|Condo||$ 1,835||maintenance charge just went up|
|Bank Charge||$ 71||stupidity: ATM fee and late charges|
|Business expense||$ 1,060|
|Dining/Groceries||$ 828||a very social month, eating out a lot!|
|Entertainment||$ 5||Just Netflix |
|Gifts Given||$ 55|
|Property Insurance||$ 335||once a year charge|
|Subscriptions||$ 149||renewed the New Yorker |
If you back out the business expenses, my total outflow was $6,366, so I saved $1,651, or about 20% of my gross salary. We're heading into the home stretch for the year, and I have a holiday vacation planned, plus Christmas shopping, so I may not be saving a whole lot more... but hopefully I can still manage to end the year at or close to my all-time net worth high... we'll see! Onward and upward!
