This net worth update is coming in a bit late because last week was wack-a-doodle busy for me. As if things weren’t already busy-busy with work, a toddler, online businesses, and everything else I try to cram into my life… I finally got my braces put on last week! But, that happened just after the […] The post Net Worth Update: April 2019 appeared first on Poorer Than You. ...

Happy April! In case you missed it, I continued the April Fools’ Day tradition around here with a bit of fun-poking around the idea of “mindset” and FI foods. Once the cat was out of the bag about the joke, I turned it into a game with a fun little prize: an Amazon gift card […] The post Net Worth Update: March 2019 appeared first on Poorer Than You. ...

Food: it unites us, but it also divides us. Nothing has spawned more internet arguments, magazine articles, talk-show debates, and Nightline specials than what it is we should be eating. I’m not here to claim that I have all the answers, and I’m not a nutritionist, a medical doctor, or a dietician. But what I […] The post Not Able to Save Money? The Problem Could Be Your Diet appeared first ...

A few months before I started this blog, I was in a dire financial situation (and I didn’t even recognize it). The year was 2006, and I was a bright, bushy-tailed, naïve film student with dreams of becoming a big Hollywood… something. Truth be told, film school wasn’t going so well, and I was having […] The post From Putting 33¢ Pasta on Credit to $100k in Savings appeared first on ...

At this point, I think February is just getting shorter every year. It’s a weird, sick joke. I’m convinced there will never be another leap year, and eventually the calendar is going to try to pass off a single day, February 1st, as a whole month. I’m on to you, calendar! I know your weird […] The post Net Worth Update: February 2019 appeared first on Poorer Than You. ...

One of the things that’s clear to me from tracking my net worth over the years is that most of the time, growth is pretty slow-going. Sometimes, there are setbacks and the growth feels even slower. Then, you’re just trying to claw back to where you were a few months ago. Last month, when I […] The post Net Worth Update: January 2019 appeared first on Poorer Than You. ...

Happy New Year! The December net worth update is usually my favorite of the year, since it concludes not just another month, but of course the calendar year, as well. But, um, well… have you heard about the stock market this month? I had heard rumblings that things were down by quite a bit, but […] The post Net Worth Update: December 2018 appeared first on Poorer Than You. ...

When we last left our hero, a slight market downturn had derailed her attempts to reach a $100,000 net worth, dental and vision expenses were starting to pile on, and she’d slightly accelerated her predicted debt freedom date to September 2022. How has she fared in the busy November days betwixt then and now? Let […] The post Net Worth Update: November 2018 appeared first on Poorer Than You. ...
