January 2019 Net Worth


All figures except my Jeep value are generated from Mint.com. 

After experiencing a brutal 9.2% S&P decline in December, the markets bounced back big time climbing 7.9% in January! This is the best January since 1987!!

The market definitely helped my portfolio in a major way. My net worth gained just under $23,000. When you are retired and have no traditional employment income it's nice to see these types of months. 

While I had my lowest spend month in December, my property taxes and yearly auto insurance were due in January making it my most expensive month since I retired. Also January is the first month since August that I didn't receive some sort or credit card rebate. I have been averaging about $400 a month since September.  I could receive about $1,000 in rebates in February depending on payouts.

I lowered my Jeep value $2,000 from 21,500 to $19,500. I'll probably drop it down to $17,500 around the middle of the year. My home dropped about $1500 as well.

After goofing off during my first six months of retirement, I've been more focused on building up my dividend portfolio, CD income, and credit card churning. I came real close to receiving $1,000 in passive income from taxable and retirement accounts in January. I don't consider credit card bonus points income. I account for them as expense reduction. It really doesn't matter, net worth is net worth. 

Anyway, here are January's numbers.

  1. Fantastic. That's a very nice rebound. Losing near 10% in the first place is not a nice feeling.

    1. BHL,

      January has literally be a complete reversal from December. For the last several years buying during corrections has paid off!

  3. Wow, it's crazy to see how net worth grow in the market that quickly and that dramatically. If you want to reinvest your dividend stocks you will see that type of growth as well.
