It's a bit late for this, but I'll get it out of the way before I have to move on to December!
First of all, it was a big month for income: $23,536 in total. In addition to my salary, I received $15,000 as part (not all) of my inheritance from Great Aunt Minnie. (I had thought that would be the full amount, but I got another $9,000 in December. I continue to be bewildered, amazed and grateful whenever I see these numbers.)
As for expenses, nothing too dramatic to report. I returned a few pairs of boots I'd bought from Zappo's last month, so the clothing line is negative. Travel is high because Sweetie and I settled up what we'd spent on our vacation back in September and I owed about $800. And I started doing a wee bit of Christmas shopping.
The net is that I saved $17,309 in November, which is pretty good even without the $15,000 inheritance.
As for my net worth, it increased $20,493 from last month (+4.47%) to $479,273.
So far, the inheritance has just gone into cash savings, but I'll probably add some more to mutual investments soon. The only other change of note here is that I finally updated my savings bond values, which I don't do every month.
December will probably not be a big savings month, considering charitable donations and holiday gift-giving, but I think 2010 overall will look pretty good, and I should exceed my year end net worth goal even backing out the inheritance. But what's next for 2011? We'll see...
Onward and upward!
