Early Jan net worth update

January 26th, 2009 at 06:34 am

Normally, I'd wait until pay day to update, but seeing as how I am currently not receiving a paycheck (with it going to 401(k) instead), I decided that now is as good as any!

January. Not surprisingly, my net worth went up because January is when my employer's 401(k) match hits my account. It kind of skews things, but I'm not complaining!

I was heartened when I looked at my net worth list, seeing the pit from where I started, all the way to where I am currently. It gives me a sense of hope that maybe, just maybe, I can make it after all.

Especially in light of the fact that there's all this upheaval going on at the workplace. It just goes to show that the only financial security is the one you create for yourself.

You'll have to pardon my overall lack of enthusiasm today. Just another Monday blues kind of day I think.

    Good job BA. I think you're doing great. I personally feel like the state of our economy isn't helping the way we feel about our finances. I'm sure if everything was the way it was over a year ago that most of us would have been making more in our savings accounts, 401K's, C.D.'s, etc. I think that it's just the I just don't know what is going to happen tomoorrow thinking.

    While finances aren't great, they are better for those who planned or as you said "financial security is the one you create for yourself". There are many that are in dire straits today. Some have lost their jobs but some have made very poor financial choices.

    I also don't look at Mondays the same. If you have your head above water, you are doing great.

    There is a saying that at tree has to grow from a seed like money grow from penny! (Hmm maybe if I watered a penny? loll!) You are an inspiration for many of us who are slowly plugging away in hope we do all right. But I can only dream to do those ambitious tasks that you do to even put in more money. I certainly feel the urgency to do so but do not have the means at this time.

    Yeah, I guess I shouldn't feel so down about it. I guess it could be much worse. Thanks for pointing that out! (Lunch always picks up my mood too!)
