Another month where the trifecta of a) Socking money in retirement account, b) Paying down debt, and, c) Stock markets continuing in their upward trajectory – helped us in pushing our net worth close to $700k, notwithstanding the fact that we’ve been on one income for the whole month of August!
There were a couple of big expenses in August, all paid for by credit cards, which will be reconciled by cash this month and reflect in the next update. One of the expenses relate to travel (food and incidental; major categories such as flight and hotels were already paid for earlier); the other relate to a party we threw in August.
September heralds in a new job with a substantial greater income. Also, the outstanding student loan (~$8k) will be paid off by end of the end of this month (from the signing bonus of the new job).
