I know, I know. This post is a few days old. The reason for its tardiness is because I was out of state and didn't take my laptop with me.

Let's jump in and see where I stand. After the first month of a new year, my net worth is...

Without further ado, let's dig in and see where I stand. My net worth at the end of December and to round out the year is...

November 2017 Update

♪♫♬ Damn it feels good to be a...saver...again. It's that time of month to check the numbers and see where my net worth stands. Before we dive in, I just want to say: it was a good month! That should be enough of a hint to let you know it's more than last month. My net worth at the end of November is...
