I just put our numbers into Networth IQ, and was pleasantly surprised. Our net worth has increased to $82,526. Last December, it was $68,813, and at the time, I set a goal for us to increase our net worth by $20,000 in 2007. It looks like we’ll easily reach that goal, since we’ve added $13,000 already and it’s only July. I think I’ll revise the goal and say that we’re shooting for $93,000 by the end of the year. I think that’s doable, and it will absolutely happen if we meet our other financial goals.
Commentary on the current net worth: There were the basics – we added to our retirement savings, paid down more of that last credit card, and added to our HSA. We paid off a little more of our mortgage. nothing too exciting. One thing that’s not reflected in the current net worth is the bill for my husband’s lipoma surgery. We’re negotiating the bill right now, so I don’t have a final number yet (or even an estimate – we have no idea where this is going to end up). Next month our HSA balance will likely be quite a bit lower, since we will have paid whatever the bill is by then. But for now, what the heck, I’m gonna just not worry about it, and count our net worth at $82K+. Happy days.
