For those whom have been reading me for a while you might wonder why it takes me a while to post an update on my net worth. After all my last one was in Dec, 2006. To be honest I find tracking it on a monthly basis just a bit too mind numbing for my taste, but in the interest of knowing how I’m doing I have decided to update it every two months. So here we go.
House $200,000 (I raised this up a bit to cover some recent house improvements and also to reflect my most recent market survey of house prices in my area.)
Old Work Pension $10,500
New Work Pension $500
Wife’s RRSP $5000
Wife’s Investment Account $4400
ING Savings Account $2000
Line of Credit $0
Therefore my net worth now stands at: $85,450.
Overall a nice little increase (+$5,250 or 6.5%) from my last check up. As you might have noticed my new work pension has kicked in so that should help out the savings nicely. I will note here that these numbers were from Feb 26 when I started pulling them together and don’t count in yesterday’s slide on the markets (but my guess would be that slide dragged me down around $500 total).
