July 2012 Net Worth Update (+1.57%)

July was a pretty good month – we ended up positive just a tad over $5,000.  As with the other summer months, July’s expenditures were a bit high due to childcare and vacation spending.  We’re pretty excited that our youngest child will be entering kindergarten at the end of August, and with that, our childcare bills will FINALLY fall drastically!!!  Our oldest is now nine, which means that for nine long years, we’ve probably paid an average of at least $400/month for childcare.  Now that money can be put to a better use like saving for college.  I’ll try to run some statistics once September rolls around to figure out just how much we’ve spent on childcare over these years.
