Retirement Up Since Last Year & More

June 6th, 2017 at 01:35 pm

Retirement is definitely up from last year at this time. In fact, we had just met a milestone of $350K. But now, a year later our retirement accounts at last check totaled $439,848. A nice $89,000+ difference. That change is due to the market rise and our contributions over the year.

I sold an item on eBay yesterday. I only netted a small amount, maybe $2. But the items are gone. That money will go to the Big Goal.

I found a nickel in a store parking lot yesterday. Unfortunately, it didn't cover the costs of what I spent!

I used $30 worth of Amazon gift cards (earned through url=http://www.swagbucks.com/refer/creditcardfree] Swagbucks[/url]) to cover some phone and travel expenses for my daughter. A phone case and screen cover, a travel adapter, a book for her AP Literature class (she has to do a project over the summer!), and a travel wallet for cash and passport that she can wear under clothes. Out of pocket I only spent $6.52!

Today has been a no spend day! Happy about that, since it has been a very spendy June so far.

    Congrats on the net worth. It's amazing what compounding can do.

    Sorry, I see your number is just for retirement.

  5. creditcardfree Says:

    Yes, just retirement, net worth is higher. I've always been fascinated by compounding interest. It's fun to see it with our own funds!

    Yes, I just checked the small share portfolio we have - last year being the first year we recorded -7% return, but at this current point in time for the 2017 we have recorded a 15.32% return, which is pretty amazing. Your difference of +$89,000 is great!

    I haven't looked at my investment accounts since end of Quarter 1, but based on what T S L A stock has been doing lately ... I imagine the numbers have grown a good bit. Smile
