June 2011 Net Worth Report (-$2,267)

Jul 01, 2011 @ 08:36 am by EMS

For the first time since November 2010, we are reporting a negative net worth monthly gain.  Due mostly to investment losses, our net worth decreased by $2,267 over the month.  This has also been one of those months where our expenses seem to have gotten away from us in that I’m still not sure where all of the money went.  Due to some circumstances beyond our control, we spent way more money on our three year old’s birthday party than we would have otherwise.  I’m not going to get into the details, but it won’t happen again.  We also purchased flights for a quick trip to the Grand Canyon (sans kids) that will take place later this month.  I zeroed out our Prosper.com account, which accounts for about $130 of the accounts receivable decrease.

If the summer continues as it has, as I expect it will, there will be very little to put aside for additional house payments and college savings for the kids.  Hopefully we can get back on track once school starts, and daycare/camp costs disappear for the older two.
