August was a successful month with our net worth, but the stock market didn’t help. Our overall net worth increased by 5.99% last month, thanks to an impressive debt payoff.
We paid off about $3,800 in debt principal and gained about $1,100 in assets (stocks).
By the way, I stopped tracking both our home value and mortgages in our net worth. I can only guess what it could sell for, so there’s no use in trying to track a profit now. Our net worth graph took a giant drop, but we’re still on the positive side for net worth.
