As regular readers know I track our net worth by posting a summary of our current net worth breakdown along with some other personal financial statistics every second month. I'm due for my next update on July 15, 2008. I'm actually not the only personal finance blogger in Canada who reports regularly on net worth. Here are two in particular that I always read with great interest.
Million Dollar Journey reports his net worth each month. His net worth currently stands at $310,483. That is a gain of just over 2% from May, 2008 to June, 2008 due to some good performance by a micro cap stock in his RRSP, as well as some solid savings results despite a maternity leave situation. Year to date MDJ has been able to increase his family's net worth by just over 11%.
Tim at Canadian Dream: Free at 45 also track his net worth bi-monthly as I do. His net worth currently sits at $247,900. That is a 10% drop from February due to a reduction in his home's value due to local real estate market conditions. Year to date Tim has been able to increase his family's net worth by just over 15%.
My last look at our net worth was on May 15, where it stood at. This represents a 13.6% increase since the start of 2008.
