Showing by category: Net Worth

Slow and steady wins the internal race, right?  Thankfully my ZPR shares aren’t hemorrhaging as badly compared to earlier in the month (I was down 2300 at one point, now just down 800 in unrealized losses).  I was quite excited about the increase in TFSA contribution room and of course I funneled the $4500 money […]
I must admit I think I am suffering from net worth update anxiety.  I procrastinated calculating my update today.  I think I must have checked out one hour of Youtube videos (I really like Jimmy Kimmel and Conan… the April Fool’s Prank that Rihanna did to Jimmy Kimmel was pretty epic) before hunkering down to […]
Well this month was a little anticlimactic.  The markets were pretty flat.  Not much of a gain compared to last month, but I did spend some time on vacation this month for two weeks and managed to still be in the positive, so that’s not too bad.  My goal is to have a net worth […]
Weee! I made it over $350,000 (celebration belated for a month I suppose but better than nothing).  It wasn’t looking very good for a while but the markets picked up a bit and I made some stealth moves with COS.TO (Canadian Oil Sands) so that was pretty good (see below in the TFSA section on […]
Net Worth: Comparing Apples to Oranges?
When I started calculating my net worth many years ago (just prior to starting this blog I believe in 2009) I was excited, and I still am excited when I do the calculations every month.  It’s a way for me to keep accountable with my personal finance journey to create my own Findependence Day some […]
So close, but yet so far. Just $2300 shy of reaching my target.  It doesn’t help that there were after-holiday sales and I went down to the United States for a weekend to places like Nordstrom Rack and other outlet-type places as a family trip and blew over $600+ for the weekend.  I would have […]
Ughhh the suspense!  Just one more month left until “judgment day”! I was doing good until a few days ago when the oil stocks just basically plummeted.  Unfortunately I calculate my net worth updates on the same day each month so I was not able to “fudge” my update. As some of you know, I […]
I must admit when I do my NW updates I get a bit anxious these days since I set that goal for myself. Just to recap, my goal for the end of the year was to break a net worth of $350,000.  I have just shy of $7000 to go before the end of the […]
