Gasp! Egad! Can it be?!!?? An even greater gain than last month?!!
If you can’t tell, I’m pretty stoked about this month’s numbers. That tax refund always feels so good in the spring. Got about $5000 back! I know I know, I could’ve with held less from taxes and invested that money, but let’s face it, I’m not the most organized person out there, it’s nice to know you got a cushion coming.
As you can see, cash is my major boom each month. That’s what budgeting and proper saving can do for you! That being said, I did go over budget again, this month by $144, so I’ll have to transfer an extra $144 over to my investment account. Still, that’s better than I did last month! Don’t worry about the credit card, again I pay that off in full every month, it just takes a couple days to post to my account.
Down again on the IRA this month, which further solidifies my theory of selling in April and buying in August. I’ve sold all the ones I’m going to sell for this spring. I held on to some just because they’re doing extraordinarily well. Will talk about my stock picks in a future post.
Pretty standard really. Knockin out those student loans by age 35! What really burns my bananas is that I pay a little over $1300 for mortgage and escrow on each of my homes, but of all that money which includes insurance, pmi, interest, and principle, only like $225 goes to the actual principle!! Blerg! As you can see by the drop in the Real Estate Acct, still not doing well on the real estate. MUST… RENT… ROOM! ::waves arms furiously::
Good Things in May!
Oh I am excited for next month! I’ve no doubt I shall reach the fabled net zero milestone! There shall be drinking and partying and glory abounding, I swear!
