It's May 10th, do you know what your networth is? Because I didn't. Yes that's right my monthly ritual of closing the books was behind schedule and I didnt even know how we did this month.
I'd say April was a mixed bag financially. In looking at the balances I realized I had money just sitting in my checking account (this is most likely a result of not yet starting up my 401k) and I just transferred that over to my Roth IRA. So the good news is that my Roth IRA is way ahead of schedule (I'm throwing the net paycheck surplus at the Roth) and it's possible I will have that maxed out by mid-year.
However, it seems I am about a month behind in my average monthly networth increases in terms of meeting my year end goal of $275k. Expenses are down a little bit and I am throwing money at the Roth first instead of evenly contributing to the Roth and 401k throughout the year (I have reasons, don't worry)
My networth as of April 30th is: $227,147
I accidentally entered April data in May and then I couldn't delete May so it looks like April to May is flat. But really I just enter my info on the last day of the month. Is that weird?
I also noticed I am overdue for a re-allocation of my retirement funds. I re-allocated about 13 months ago and I believe I am overexposed in bonds for my investing target. My choices have done decently but I'm not comfortable with my current bond allocation.
