|Cost Of Living
|Late 30s mom with 2 kids. I blog at www.hereverycentcounts.com about personal finance and mental health.
I work in tech on the business side, all my net worth growth has been due to saving from full time income and investment earnings on that money.
I want to FAT Coast Fire by 45 and have one more kid. This account tracks my personal net worth only. I track family net worth (which includes my husband's smaller savings) at https://www.networthshare.com/user/dnacouple
|Why I Joined
|NetworthIQ has been broken for years, so this seems like a good alternative. Originally I joined networthIQ to challenge myself to save money.
|Best Financial Decision
|Starting a blog to keep track of my savings and encourage me to invest. Check it out at www.hereverycentcounts.com
|Worst Financial Decision
|Current Investing Strategy
|Keep major expenses low (i.e. drive used car I paid for in cash, live in suburbs vs city, et al) and try not to spend too much on other things. Also, try to make good money so when I do spend on random things I can still save a significant amount of income each month.
|How do you manage your finances?
|I don't really, I just try to put money into my retirement and taxable investment accounts each month. I'm probably doing a horrible job but at least I'm saving something.
|What tools do you use?
|I use Mint/YNAB and pay my credit cards off each month.
|I need financial help with...

Previous: Figuring out how to go from $400k to $5M... if that's possible.
