It’s net worth time!
I wish April had 33 days in it. Why? Because then this upcoming Friday would have been a part of the month and I could have claimed I finished off the month free of the car payment. But alas, there are only 30 days and so I have a single payment to pay off the remaining 1.3% of my $8900 car loan.
What a difference a couple of days make! I had started collecting my financial information on Sunday while I was off but stopped when I realized I still had a few payments coming… in both directions. So today, I logged into everything again and discovered that my IRA had jumped $50! I gained more in the last 2 days than I did in the first 28.
Aside from that, this was kind of a sideways month. I had the first two of several needed dental treatments and it was time for my wife to get new glasses. That pretty much wiped out the HSA money we had built up.
There may have been some backsliding on certain good habits we have been working towards.But at least we didn’t add any new debt. Another contributor to a loss of cash was a planned birthday dinner for a friend wound up being much more expensive than anticipated. My meal alone was close to what we normally pay for the both of us. The food was good, but not for that price!
