Hello everyone how are you? Welcome to my October net worth post. This is the first time I’m doing a net worth post. These posts are very popular with other bloggers and they gave me the inspiration to write this post, and share with you my net worth.
I would like to say that I decided to do this post about a week ago therefore I don’t have any figures for September to compare, so I will just post my numbers from the end of October. Going forward I will start comparing my numbers to the previous month.
Let’s get started shall we 🙂
Cash – $586.27
My cash balance currently sits at $586.27. This number does not include my emergency savings account. I got $586.27 by adding up my three savings accounts, one of my accounts is with Tangerine bank and the money that goes into that is from the cash back that I earn from using my credit card so usually only about $4 to $7 goes into that per month. My cash balance is low because what I have been doing is once I get paid I pay off my credit cards, then put money into my emergency fund, then finally I put the rest into my TFSA account.
Emergency Fund – $7000
This is the area that I have spent the most time improving this year. At the beginning of the year I only had $2,500 set aside. In October I hit the $7,000 mark in my emergency fund and have decided that this is a good figure for me to be at.
Investments – $113,166.20
My investments come from three accounts I have a Locked In RRSP which I received from a previous employer, also I have a TFSA and RRSP which I mention often here on the site. My main focus at the moment is to continue to build up my TFSA account which is tax free and if I withdraw money I won’t be taxed unlike my RRSP.
- Locked In RRSP $3,934.84
- TFSA $25,544.44
- RRSP $83,868.92
Car – $15,343.00
I currently have a 2015 Hyundai Elantra GLS I used the site Canadian Black Book to get the value of my car. I will only check the value of my vehicle every three to four months.
Credit Cards – $70
Every time I get paid I pay off my credit cards. At the end of October I currently owed $70 on one of my cards.
Car – $14,729.41
I currently owe $14,727.41 on my car. I was one of those people who financed their car for 8 years because I wanted the lowest payments. I regret doing so now I currently have about 4 years left to pay off the car, but next year I am going to focus on paying off the car quicker.
Total Net Worth
As we entered November my net worth stood at $121,296.06 a little higher than what I thought it would be I guess that is why it is good to review your numbers often to see where you sit financially.
