2011 is almost gone, so here's how it all wound up financially:
My overall debt decreased by $7,258 over the course of the past year.
My retirement funds in my 401(K)increased by $10,616.
My net worth decreased by $7648--a function of NW housing prices which have gone down steadily for the past two years. I'm not feeling too bad about this since I own my rental outright, and my current home will be paid off in 2.25 years. I'm still over the half-million mark which sounds fine to me.
I did not meet my 2011 goal which was a desired debt reduction of $10,000.
But hey! There's whole new year coming up!
New Year but same old goals because I am still determined to lower my debt by at least $10,000 a year.
