Another month, another net worth update.
So, I dropped $1196 overall but that’s almost entirely due to the situation in Greece and the inexplicable reaction to it in the North American markets earlier this week.
If you’re not following, the decline in the value of my 401k is because the markets dropped a little over 2% in reaction to the most recent round financial woes in Greece.
How a country like Greece can effect the markets over here is a discussion for another day…
Aside from that, though, I was pleasantly surprised with what transpired during the month.
See, while I’ve been focusing nearly all of my attention towards paying down the auto loan, I’ve been using my credit cards with, what feels like, reckless abandon and not really paying much back towards them.
Or so I thought…
I expected my credit card balance to be far more than $441 deeper in debt.
Truthfully, I was prepared to be $1k more in the hole.
