May Net Worth Update – Up $2,283


May ended up being a great month for our net worth. We had some help, though, with our economic stimulus payment. All of that ($1,500) went straight towards our debt πŸ˜‰

I’ll probably be posting our May spending this weekend and we’ll review more things that enabled us to increase our net worth last month. I can tell you right now that our income was a big help. It was higher than normal again in May.

To see our complete net worth, you can always check out our NetWorthIQ.com profile.

This month will probably be a little interesting. I believe there will be an increase in our net worth but not as much as the last two months because our income will be more “normal.” The plan for June is to continue beefing up our savings account balance. Our debt reduction will stall for a little bit, but that’s okay. We’re still on track for meeting our debt-payoff goal date (May of 2009).

Speaking of goals, back at the end of 2007 I listed a few an update a little while ago. As of today, we have paid off $8,100! Woohoo! We are way ahead of schedule πŸ™‚

    It’s amazing what one can accomplish in a year. Sometimes looking at the number that represents debt, it can just be a daunting task. So breaking it down and setting smaller goals to reduce it by an amount or a percentage keeps the motivation up. I think the drive to keep going and not give up is necessary to reach a goal.

    Nice! Wow — that must’ve felt great to knock $1800+ off of the credit card balances in just one month!

    Stimulus check behind much of it or not, it’s still a huge drop! Keep it up! :0)
