All-Ahead Standard

December 1st, 2008 at 05:16 pm

Calculated our end-Nov net worth today. *sigh* Down over 1% from end-Oct. If we remove our tax-deferred mutual funds (mix of stocks & bonds) from the equation, we are UP about 1% from the month prior. So we are doing what we need to do, spending less than we earn and saving a decent amount. But for the time being, the stock market is causing our bottom line to shrink.

Don't like seeing the "Journey to Balance Sheet Affluent" number falling off so much. Oh well ... In the area we can control (living below our means), we are doing well.

All-ahead standard.

    "All-ahead standard". Too funny. Good time to dollar cost average and rebalance the portfolio. P/Es won't be always this low.

    Imagine where you might be if not for your sensible strategies of living below your means and saving diligently... maybe "back a third." wink

    I'm glad we're in balanced and mixed funds ... The rebalancing gets done for us. Right now that is a big help!
