It's my blog anniversary!

May 26th, 2006 at 07:28 am

Can't believe it's been a whole year! I have to say, I am feeling much less stressed this year than last, and being here has a lot to do with it.

When I look back in Quicken, things aren't dramatically better than they were last year. But they're going in the right direction, I'm still learning a lot, and I feel much more in control of our finances.

Here's a comparison, year to year for our liquid net worth (just checking, savings, gift cards and cc debt).

May 26, 2005 - Assets $3665, cc debt $3756, net MINUS $91

May 25, 2006 - Assetts $4625, cc debt $2948, net PLUS $1677.

Total improvement over the year, $1768, or about $147 a month. Pretty sad, really. But an improvement, and I'll take it.

Haven't come up with any specific goals yet, but I'm psyched to tweak things a bit more and do even better in the coming year.

    I don't think those totals are sad at all....

    What would have been sad is if your numbers had been red instead of black!

    That said, use your motivation to your advantage and set those goals!! You're doing great! Smile
