DINKs December Net Worth: Up 26K

by James & Miel on December 2, 2009 · 4 comments

The tally has been made for our latest net worth, and things are looking pretty good. We are ever so close, hovering at the edge of reaching the elusive $400k benchmark that we were so close to meeting before the meltdown in the economy.

The short story is that our net worth increased by $26k since September, this a 7% increase during that time. Not half bad when you look at a couple of months.

What can we attribute this to? The simply answer is more of the same. Plugging along at maxing out Miel’s retirement, James making the occasional trips to the bank for a savings bond. That’s about it. Nothing complex.

Here are the details if you are interested in the fine print:

You can also see what our progress has looked like over time. We are looking forward to cresting over the $400k mark very soon!

With the stock market rising over the past couple months Im wondering whats going on with your stock portfolio? Looks like it dropped nearly $10k in value – assume you liquidated some of your holdings?

Hey 2million,

Nope. We lost money in the market.

Just curious … How old are the both of you? I ask because I am 30 and my wife is 28. We currently have a net worth of $430k including our house which we paid $140k for in january of this year (2011)
