So anyways, for the money voyeurs among you (and I know there are many because that's why I started this blog), here's the lowdown.
Total Spending $3176.25
Next month is sure to be a doozy on the spending report, however, this is all part of the plan.
I think the best money that I spent was the $64.82 for travel which was two tanks of gas (and possibly a few gas station snacks) that I bought while I was on a business trip. My company is headquartered in my home town, so I flew down the weekend before the business part of the trip and had the opportunity to drive several hours to my in laws house to visit, and to spend Father's day with my dad. It's really fun to see family, especially for the most part on my company's dime.
Net Worth $470,252 (Down $3,487)
All of our investment accounts were down 1.5%-3.5% (the 3.5 comes from a Roth that has a European mutual fund in it. Thankfully, I like Greek food, so I'm not too made at Greece's fiscal imprudence). We are looking forward to doing a good bit of investing this coming month (despite the fact that we are spending like crazy, we are spending saved money, and we will cash flow the investing). I think this is called Dollar Cost Averaging for the win!
As usual we are keeping both of our properties at their book value, although we are very hopeful that all our home improvement will yield a flat or positive ROI when we sell.
Will we hit $500K?
Even if the raise I'm lobbying for comes through in the next month or two, we would still fall far short of the $500K mark. Unless the market goes truly gang busters, I think it's going to take at least another 12 months for us to hit the half million mark.
