I tracked our net worth for the first time on July 15, 2017, and I have updated it on or around the 15th of each month ever since. Listed below is each monthly report, as well as the dollar amount that our net worth has increased or decreased since the previous month.

In each report, I go into detail about what net worth is and why it’s important, as well as the service I use to track ours. Quick explanations of these are below.

Net Worth

The value of your assets (home, vehicles, investments, cash, etc.) minus your liabilities (amount of debt owed on these things).

Personal Capital

The free service/app that updates your net worth upon sign-in by connecting to your bank accounts, investment accounts and even Zillow. Connecting accounts is optional, though very convenient.

Personal Capital offers an awesome refer-a-friend program for their free service. If you use this linkand connect a qualifying investment account (taxable brokerage, 401k, IRA, 529, etc.) with a balance of more than $1000 within 30 days of signing up, you and I both will receive a $20 Amazon gift card!
