November 2011 Net Worth Update (+$8,068.61)

With the ups and downs of the market, it was tough to tell where November would land. Thankfully, it landed up and our net worth increased $8,068.61 from last month, to a total of $156,472.12 (click on spreadsheet below).

What Worked
The biggest impact to our net worth this month was a $3,425 gross ($2,701.37 net) bonus that my wife earned. On top of that, this was an “extra” check month for me. So, we were able to deposit $4,891.17 into savings.

What Didn’t Work
We also contributed a total of $1,834.88 to our retirement accounts. but they only increased $1,633.64.

Next Month
December may be a tricky month as my wife switches from SDI (not taxed) to PFL (taxed). That being said, I am changing my filing status from M1 to M3, which should help our cash flow. It is also obviously the end of the year, so I'll be reviewing our 2011 goals and posting our goals for 2012.
