We made a slight change to our Net Worth calculation this month. We used to do a snapshot balance of all our money on the first of every month (checking + mini saving funds etc included), but we’ve taken these accounts out of the calculation. It was getting too complicated to manage.
We have/had a gift fund, a travel fund, a repairs fund* + we lent my daughter a small amount towards a car purchase. It was all far too messy to keep track of, so we’ve taken all the accounts out of our NW. From now on we’re only tracking money towards M’s early retirement.
*We’re in the process of reducing the amount of small savings accounts we have, but that’s another post!
Ok! I think that’s it for February! I hope February was kind to you!
