M and I finally made a decision, and have started planning our wedding. And it’s totally different from our plans a few months ago! We’ve been back and forth on our wedding plans for years. We both knew we wanted something simple and casual. Once we got engaged last December, we decided that we definitely wanted to get married in … ...

May didn’t turn out as great as April did, but I’m still super excited about the progress we made this month: We had a total of $1,469.02 in Net Worth growth during the month of May. But, that total only tells a portion of the story. In May, we bought half a cow (meat), for a total of $780. We also made … ...

A little late this month with our net worth numbers. April was an incredible month here in the Worth household: We managed to grow our net worth by $4,865.67 in April! Growth of our retirement accounts accounted for $1,421.78 of that amount, due to both contributions (from myself and my employer) and market gains. We also paid off another $1,306.36 … ...

We’re only 3 months in to 2018, yet I feel like so much is changing. M and I have made a lot of progress towards our financial goals so far this year. But, we’re also starting to shift priorities a little bit. Even though we discussed our goals for 2018 before I posted them, I have to admit, they were really … ...

Another month of 2018 is gone! I’ve actually been really excited about March, from a financial perspective. The home renovation loan finally closed out, which enabled us to move some money around. M is working more consistently, despite the weather being less than fabulous (I love his new job!). And M and I were finally able to really talk, and … ...

With all that’s been going on in M and my lives, you’d think we thrived on chaos. We don’t. But, for some reason(?), we keep adding to! Meet the newest member of our little family, Jaxon! We adopted Jax from a local animal rescue that specializes in small dogs (Rosie’s South Side Animal Shelter, for anyone in the Indy area) … ...

I started Growing Her Worth in February of 2013. At the time, I had just under $15,000 in debt, and a negative net worth ( -$1,754). I was actually dating M at the time, but we weren’t exactly serious. I was living my financial life as a single girl: 100% dependent on my self, making all my own decisions, setting … ...

I decided to check my site stats on Thursday, and saw 103 page views here at Growing Her Worth. My first thought: Oh Fudge! My second thought was that this post was even more important than I originally thought. You see, part of my back and forth between this blog and the now defunct By Next Year was trying to … ...

As I mentioned in Monday’s post, I’ve decided to come back to posting at Growing Her Worth. By Next Year is going dark, at least for the foreseeable future. I didn’t post consistently at By Next Year. And some of the posts I did make were ramblings about why I wasn’t posting. But, there were a few posts that make … ...

I’m guessing you’ve noticed that, in March, I started posting back here at Growing Her Worth. I thought about making a big post (again), with proclamations, and deep thoughts, and insights (again), and all kinds of plans for what the future holds (again), which may or may not come true (again). Then I decided that, maybe, it would be better … ...
