October: Once again, I am late with this month’s Net Worth Update. It has been another busy month, but a lot of good news came in October. As I mentioned last month we had accepted an offer on the house. I have to say without to much hassle the house has closed and we are Continue Reading… The post Net Worth #7 – Oct ’17 appeared first on FI By The Common ...

Talk about a lag of posts in September, apologizes, but it has been a hectic month. In fact, so hectic that this Net Worth update is over a week late. The biggest news from September is we accepted an offer on our house (yahoo). The sale is planned to complete towards the end of October. What’s that mean and what have I been doing? Glad you asked. The majority of ...

Where did the summer go? August proved to be another great month. I had mention in the post about putting it all together that I had never tracked or officially calculated our net worth. I started back in April 2017 with the first Net Worth Update #1  and will continue to track and post monthly. August saw another good increase in our net worth, which was driven by a good ...

New state, new school, new house, brings another new. There have always been 2 incomes in our household, but with this move we will be going down to 1 income for the time being. The decision was made that my wife will wait to get a job. This will ensure our daughter is fully adjusted to the move, especially school. Since my wife is a teacher, we figured that most ...

As I mentioned in the about me page, I am a big DIY and yet I haven’t written a single post on any projects. Well that is about to change, but this won’t be a step by step guide, more of an overview. Our new house needed an area fenced in so our dog could take care of his business. He really doesn’t need a fence, it was more to keep ...

Here we are again, another month, another Net worth update. July was a really good month for us. We saw some nice increases pretty much across the board, but did have some additional expense with the new house. Our old house is on the market and hopefully it won’t take long for a buyer. I had mention in the post about putting it all together that I had never tracked or ...

  Wow, time is flying. Sorry for the late net worth monthly post. We have been so focused on moving and getting the new house up and going I have had no time to post. The next week will be hectic, but hopefully after that things will be back to normal and I can get back to a regular posting schedule. I had mention in the post about putting it all together ...

I have previously mentioned that we are moving. The driving force behind this was to be closer to my in-laws and along the way reduce our monthly expense. It would also be nice if we could walk away with some extra money to invest. Below is a quick break down of where I see us being in a couple of months. Old House Numbers: Market Value $305,000 – $310,000. 1,400 sqft, 3bed/3bath, .8 ...

I have to say I am not the best writer nor the most organized with getting my thoughts on virtual paper. I am sure this post will jump around a bit and with that here we go. I mentioned in the May Net Worth post that we had bought another house and are planning a move. We are moving from New England to the great state of Georgia. Where do I ...

Here we go with the second net worth monthly post. I had mention in the post about putting it all together that I had never tracked or officially calculated our net worth. I started back in April 2017 with the first Net Worth Update #1  and will continue to track and post monthly. May was an exciting month for us as we are buying a new house and it is ...
