$1310.18 to go to hit my main goal of six month's of expenses, which is $20,522.70. After that we will start working on doubling that. I had really hoped to hit six month's of expenses this year, and we still might if the Christmas bonus is big enough. I know we built it a lot this year, because we ended 2020 at $9,465.32. We've more than doubled it this year at $9,747.20 contributed. So it's good, it's really good, but I wanted that goal, you know? If we get close enough, I may dip some money out of the propane grill envelope to meet that, since we never did buy it and I can make that up before grilling season. We'll see.
As for retirement, we are finally making headway on paper, though we lost a lot of money. We gained a lot of stock, so it'll all even out eventually. But we are up by about $75 more than our Friday contribution. The new balance on the retirement account is:
That is up $814.07. My hope to hit $70K by the end of the year is possible, but improbable given the volatility. If it was static and just added next payday's contribution we would do it, but not if it goes down and down and down like it has been doing and then slowly climbing back up. C'est la vie. Que será, será. Etc.
So that means net worth is up $1, 044.37 to $126,736.23. Which means $23,263.77 to my next big net worth goal of $150,000.
So we are trucking along. All in all, I shouldn't complain, but it is human nature to do so. I just want to be there already. But we really have come a long way this year so far. Can't believe it is almost over.
