Hope you’re not in a sugar coma from all the Halloween candy, because I’ve got a bunch of numbers to throw at ya! We can only find out if this month was a trick or a treat, if we come out of the shadows (and maybe do the Time Warp again…) Change: +$1,383 or +2.37% October Net Worth TOTAL: $59,722 Before we do a deep dive into the numbers here… can we ...

I had one job to do this last month: open a Solo 401(k) for my retirement savings from self-employment and freelance income. Okay, really, I had like four jobs to do: mommy stuff, my job-job, my freelance job, and opening a Solo 401(k). But those first three were pretty much a given. A collective given? What’s the plural of a given – givens? A murder of givens? The following post is ...

I like the end of August. It means the oppressive heat of summer is about to go BUH-BYE, which is great for a delicate northern-born flower like myself (I’m basically like a Stark IRL. Winter is coming and all that.). It’s also my wedding anniversary, which is a lovely celebration of my love, and generally means there’s a steak dinner for me. And it means my birthday is right around ...

We’re into the real heat of summer now! I’ve pretty much sequestered myself entirely inside the air-conditioned apartment until that big burning orb in the sky goes away. Except, I did spend a week hanging out at -gasp!- the beach, which is basically a first for me. I don’t think I’d ever been to the beach more than 2 days in a row before in my entire life. How did taking ...

The end of June marks the halfway point of the year, so it’s a really good time to look everything over and assess progress for the year. It also helps that there’s a big holiday weekend right after the end of June, so there’s even a time baked in to do a little evaluation. So let’s see what we’re working with at this particular end-of-June milestone: Change: +$252 or +0.50% June Net ...

Another month of basically ignoring the blog altogether in favor of doing lots and lots of paid work in my “free time” – let’s see how that worked out! Change: +$2,119 or +4.39% May Net Worth TOTAL: $50,334 Well, I’d say over two grand of progress to the ol’ bottom line is good enough! Like last month, this is mostly just the product of working. Working from home while taking care of a six-month-old ...

*cricket chirp* *cricket chirp* Yup, it’s been pretty quiet around here lately. The work available to me picked up a lot in the month of April, and so I scrambled to catch it all in my little hat. That meant putting writing blog posts on hold, and focusing deeply on things that would directly make money. How well did that pay off in my net worth at the end of the ...

Happy April! Hope you enjoyed my big, wonderful April Fools’ Day joke on Saturday. Oh, and if you thought you were a smarty pants and didn’t download the ebook because you picked up on the fact that it was an April Fools’ prank? Then you got pranked as much as anyone else! Because there is some glorious actual content in that ebook for those who downloaded it and read past ...

Ordinarily on the 1st of the month, I’d be posting my net worth update here. But, I can’t do that today. No one would believe what happened to my net worth in just one month if I didn’t explain it, first. I’ve been writing this blog for more than 10 years. That’s 10 years of researching personal finance, trying to figure out how to get rich. It’s been a long, slow ...
