Net Worth Update - APR 2018 $22,113 (+$1,785)


YAY, April.  I’m officially a year older and have a couple more bucks in my pocket.  I didn’t progress too much this month with the purchase of another beater car (to replace the GMC pickup my oldest son is driving) affecting my Savings account.  My Savings account sure does get a ton of attention throughout the month though!!

Here are my April numbers.

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

Emergency Fund:  -$600 +$600 -$550 +$550 +$0  I added my planned (budgeted) additions and then bought another beater car, so my net change was ZERO.

TD Ameritrade Account:  +$21  I didn’t make any purchases in April because I am trying to concentrate on building my Emergency Fund, even though I keep pulling from it.  I’m thinking of selling a few more positions in this account to free up some cash to play with some other higher paying Dividend stocks – we’ll see though.

Simple IRA:  +$101 – No more payroll additions here as we switched to a 401(k) plan.  The market went up a little.

401(k):  +$663 – Payroll additions plus Company Match plus minimal growth.

Cars:  +1,000  I added the Corolla, but will sell the GMC soon.  These values pretty much remain the same (KBB and Craigslist).  They have all but stopped depreciating.  These suckas be old.

Bank Visa:   – Done, Debt Free

Overall – I did OK for April and had average growth.  My driveway is full though and I’ll probably make a couple moves to pare my vehicle collection down a little.  The plan in my noggin’ is to sell the GMC pickup first, followed by the Cruiser, hopefully adding a 4Runner, and then selling the BMW.  I’m not sure it’ll happen in that order, but that’s the plan.

How was your April?  How many cars are in your driveway (and/or yard sometimes)?
