It’s that time again. Yes it’s Halloween, so enjoy all those kids on a sugar high ringing your doorbell! Meanwhile here’s some numbers and graphs to get you ready for all those brightly coloured costumes.
Old Work Pension (LIRA) $12,100
New Work Pension $3700
Wife’s RRSP $6000
Wife’s Investment Account $8200
High Interest Savings Account $3200
Line of Credit $0
Therefore my net worth now stands at: $201,300. Overall an increase of +$4900 or 2.5% from my last check up.
Ok, I’m a bit overly happy I’ve officially broke the $200,000 mark. Perhaps what is most interesting about this update is the fact I’m almost one year from my first net worth post, where I started off from $66,000. To be fair I forgot about my old pension plan in that first post, so it should have been $76,500. Yet that is still a 163% increase, which was largely driven by a housing boom in Regina. But even if I take out the house value increase I’m still up 21% in a year. Or for those who love graphs, here’s the story (click on them to see a larger version).
