The end of another year. This is our second December quarterly review and I have to say, I enjoy seeing the changes. The saying “little by little, a little becomes a lot” is so relevant. As is “just keep swimming”. I should have these tattooed somewhere as these two sayings really helped keep me going. To end the year, we stayed within our boundaries of what we had as income with only taking a few thousand from the Emergency fund for expenses that I couldn’t hold off anymore.
We also sold some shares. FIRST time ever! We could have taken from our emergency stash but that would make me really on edge so had to sacrifice some blue-chip shares. Sold 30% of our NAB shares as we needed to honor our challenge to our 17-year-old who had saved for a car and we were matching what they had saved, (another post about this coming).
So overall our networth has increased by 5.6% from last quarter. This increase was mainly our properties in Sydney increasing in value ( up $106k) as well as our SuperFund (up $40k).
