Checking Account:  This account, for the most part will remain around $500, after everything hits.

Emergency Fund:  +$350  This is about the same situation as last month where I save a lot, but then end up transferring some of what I saved to cover something else.  I reckon that’s what an emergency fund is for, but I still need to do a better job budgeting!!!

TD Ameritrade Account:  -$16  Come on Ford, I’m ready to hear that big announcement that drives folks back to this Huge American Company.

Simple IRA:  +$88 – There was slight recovery from the quick drop at the end of October.

401(k):  +$566 – So, I dropped my contribution back down to 5% with intentions of building up my emergency fund a little more.  Another reason I reduced my contribution is because we had a pretty significant change in Health Insurance premiums.

Cars:  Nothing new here, but I do plan on taking the Corolla off of my NW soon as I’m about to give it to my 18yo so he can sell it and upgrade to a different car IN HIS NAME!!!

Bank Visa:   – Done, Debt Free

Overall  +$988 not a bad month, considering a few major changes.

Checking Account:  This account, for the most part will remain around $500, after everything hits.

Emergency Fund:  +$250  I saved what I budgeted to save, minus some unplanned spending.  This kinda sucks because I budget saving about $1,500 every month, but something “un-budgeted” hits and I go to my savings account and grab money.  I think I need to work on my budget and add some new categories like car repairs, or kids school supplies and stuff like that that seems to come up every month.

TD Ameritrade Account:  +$33  I haven’t made any purchases since April and I sold off everything except my position in Ford and surprisingly, (F) is on its way up a little after hitting a pretty low low recently.  I was hoping it was going to go a little lower and I was planning on doubling my position, but it has been gaining some (slow) traction.

Simple IRA:  -$485 – No more payroll additions here as we switched to a 401(k) plan.  The market went down quite a bit in the past couple days.

401(k):  +$152 – So, with bumping my contribution to 15% recently, you’d think this would show more than +$152, but with the market dropping, the overall account value is lower.

Cars:  Nothing new here.

Bank Visa:   – Done, Debt Free

Overall – This is my first overall loss since I started writing about my Net Worth a year ago.  It’s not a bad drop, but it’s still a loss.
