Net Worth Update: September 2017 +$5,526

Another great month for my net worth as well as my year to year growth. I’m happy to see positive growth every month this year (for the months that I’ve tracked). I’m sure the months that I didn’t track this year have been positive as well.

For those wondering, I use  Personal Capital to help track my net worth and I highly recommend giving it a shot (it’s completely free). You can link all your accounts and it does all the work for you. It also gives you access to a bunch of really cool tools, like the investment checkup tool.


My home value stayed the same at $100,000.

My truck value actually increased from $7,295 to $7,463. +168

Total: +$168

net worth month to month

My year over year net worth increased by 102.81%! That is, $62,682 last September to $127,12 this September. I can only hope to see this kind of growth by this time next year.

I recently found all my old net worth data dating back to January 2016. As you can see by the chart, I was spotty in recording it. I’ve found that tracking my net worth motivates me even further to increase it. So, I will continue to do so and track the results. Again, I encourage everyone to track their net worth and Personal Capital is a great tool to help you do so.

Here are the rest of my monthly net worth updates if you want to check them out!


I think it’s important to track my age and where I fall percentage wise in my age group as well. I just turned 24 years old and my net worth puts me in the 96th percentile. Also, here’s the link that I use to calculate that.
