|A few weeks ago one of my aunts passed away, and I inherited a necklace appraised at ~20k. Then, for my birthday, I was given a ring appraised at ~10k (though bought for less than that - my FIL enjoys shopping estate sales/auctions, and I'm pretty sure that's where this comes from). So, for the first time in my life, it seems to make sense to start tracking personal property. Although things financially have been pretty quiet the past few months, things in "real life" are quite busy. Baby is due on December 30, so we've been making plans for that - including trying to figure out a plan to move closer to family next year. We're definitely staying put until after baby comes, though, so we also moved recently into a new apartment close to my office so that I don't have to commute. For the next few weeks I'm taking a(n expensive) part-time class through Metis, as I'm planning that my next career move will be one that gets me back into analytics or data science. |
EDIT: My husband suggested that rather than using appraised value for jewelry, we use about half of that instead to be more conservative. So I've cut the personal property estimate in half.
