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. ...

This update is several days behind because I literally jetted out of town for several days the morning of the 1st (to attend Cents Positive, the first ever women’s financial independence retreat!). Then I came back to a busy work schedule that someone (read: me) also tried to pack with doctor and dentist appointments for […] The post Net Worth Update: October 2018 appeared first on Poorer Than You. ...

A few months back, I was listening to a lot of financial independence podcasts and then hopping on Twitter to “subtweet” about things I’ve heard. (“Subtweeting” is when you talk about someone on Twitter without tagging them, usually to throw some shade at something they’ve said or done.) Perhaps not the most mature thing, but […] The post Stuck in the Middle With You (Meet the Middletons) appeared first on Poorer ...

If your credit score is even halfway decent, you almost certainly get near-daily credit card offers in the mail. You may have paused (before shredding the colorful bits of garbage) to ask yourself: is there some way I could use these? Could I refinance my student loans to one of these 0% credit card offers? […] The post Can You Refinance Student Loans to a Credit Card? (Yes, and I Did!) ...

I just got back from FinCon (the financial media conference, where money nerds like myself go to meet up with fellow bloggers, podcasters, vloggers, freelancers, companies, and—most importantly—old friends). And I do mean just—I’m writing this paragraph on the Metro platform, navigating my way home from the airport. I wanted to write an intro before […] The post Net Worth Update: September 2018 (#FinCon18 Edition) appeared first on Poorer Than You. ...

August has come to a close, and you know what that means: the Halloween decorations are all hung with care, the pumpkin beer is in the fridge, and the spoopy books and movies have been put into full rotation again. What? Just my family? Alright, well, you guys are missing out if you’re not already […] The post Net Worth Update: August 2018 appeared first on Poorer Than You. ...

Well, it finally happened. The thing that I’ve been dreading for years (and had ample time to prepare for and totally didn’t). Yes, at last, NetWorthIQ, the service I was using to track my net worth and generate the graphs for these updates, has died. Time of Death? Sometime in the last month, I dunno.

Just a quick update this month because my brain is just a goo mush right now. We started potty training our kiddo the other day and I’m seriously questioning the nature of my reality. I know this is off-topic but, seriously? Is this how we learn to handle our bodily functions? I’m honestly surprised that anyone is […] The post Net Worth Update: June 2018 appeared first on Poorer Than You. ...

I’ve had space on the brain lately (what else is new?). And whenever I think of space, it reminds me of one of my favorite Latin sayings (that often appears in some of my favorite fiction, like To Kill a Mockingbird and Star Trek: The Next Generation): Per aspera ad astra (Through difficulty to the […] The post Net Worth Update: May 2018 appeared first on Poorer Than You. ...
