Net Worth and Income – Jan + Feb 2017

Rev yourself up for the first Chedda Income and Net Worth post of 2017! It’s a doozy!

Our expenses were pretty similar in January and February. We paid off a lot of our car loan, but otherwise we were super frugal.

Mr. Market has been really swelling our net worth. I’ve felt rich since we passed about $100k net worth, but now more than ever I’m feeling extra rich! Continue reading “Net Worth and Income – Jan + Feb 2017”

Our Expenses – February 2017

February was an excellent, excellent month in the Chedda household. I feel happier right this moment than I ever have before (to preserve the specifics of the moment for my future memory: I’m cozied up on the couch with my favorite blanket, finishing up a quesadilla and some sparkling water, listening to Elgar, tallying up monthly expenses, and Mr. Chedda just temporarily abandoned the video he’s watching on quantum mechanics and walked in and gave me a kiss on the head.)

Another splendid month has passed, and with it came the end of 2016. We spent the month afar and abroad for the most part, visiting family and friends for the holidays.

And we ended the month much more wealthy than we thought we would!

We kept our expenses pretty low despite all of our travel, and we earned way more than we expected to for a few different reasons. As I’ve been saying to my husband for years: We’re rich! Continue reading “Net Worth and Income – December 2016”

Our Expenses – December 2016

Wow, was December an intense month over here! You may have noticed that I didn’t really set aside time for blog posting this month between all of the rest of the craziness. I was busy!

Mr. Chedda and I were away from our home for most of the month, between a trip to Milwaukee, a trip to Barcelona, France, and Italy, and staying at our parents’ houses for holiday festiveating!

All of that time spent on trips made our expenses really funky this month.
