For the first time, I wasn’t as excited to calculate my net worth this month.
My husband and I took a three day Halloween vacation to Savannah, GA, and we completely wiped out our Vacation sinking fund.
And our Family sinking fund.
And our Car Repair sinking fund.
We did everything we wanted to do and, more importantly, we ate everywhere we wanted to eat in the short amount of time that we were there.
I have zero regrets. After all, that is the purpose of a Vacation sinking fund. (I’m purposely ignoring the depletion of the other two funds.)
In short, we spent much more this past month than normal, so our net worth did not increase by quite as much as I’ve gotten used to seeing, but it was so worth it.
If this is your first time reading one of my mid-month net worth reports, please know that I only update it once per month to keep the habit of doing so. Most bloggers only do this once every 3-6 months, but I don’t trust myself to remember to do those many months apart.
Also, check out my first report where I go into detail about how to calculate your net worth and the reason I wanted to begin keeping up with mine.
