At the end of each year I like to evaluate how I am tracking my finances and look for ways to simplify. With that in mind, I have made a few changes to how I will track some of my assets going forward. I will no longer be including the checking account, it tends to hover somewhere around $1,000 each month. I will be including my private equity with my trading account total. And, the money that is in my taxable account that has been earmarked for a down payment on the home we are building will be included in home equity. It will actually be converted to home equity within the next couple of months when we close.
With the stock market ripping up, it was a great year for our net worth. Up $155,456 from January.
