|2011 was a good year overall. We had a lot of major expenses and that set me back. We grew our net worth but came $5,000 short of our goal. Some of my 2011 major expenses were
1) New car - $17,500 (includes new tires)
2) New Bedroom set plus Mattress- $3,000
3) Medical Bills due to birth of son - $3,000
4) Family vacation- $5,000
5) Wife threw me a surprise 30th party - $2,500
Top 5 expenses cost me $31,000, Many of those are one time hits and I hope 2012 is calmer.
Most importantly we have a new son and our health. I look forward to hitting my 2012 goal of increasing my net worth by $40,000. |
