Positive Net worth is just so close I can smell it

Just because I’m a geek.. I calculated my networth from when I graduated University.

…up until today πŸ™‚

I’m still in the negative as of today, but by next month I should be in the black just by an eensie weensie bit.

If I keep living my frugal lifestyle (actually, even if I up my frugal lifestyle a bit and ease off on the saving every penny on everything), I hope to almost hit a net worth of $20,000 by the end of Dec 2008. But that doesn’t mean my debt is cleared. No, no. I still have that Chimpanzee left to clear by early 2009, so…. πŸ™‚

In fact, I’m going to have a POSITIVE net worth next month. Yeah, you heard me!

In May 2008, FB will FINALLY for the first time in her life since she started working, have a positive net worth!!!

Even more encouraging? This image of what my 2009 projected net worth promises to be (although I have a feeling it won’t be quite THAT high because I’ll be taking vacations, and doing things I never let myself do before)… and I may even be moving to a new country/city. I haven’t decided yet. Although it’s nice to have a really healthy EF cushion.

And that’s assuming I DON’T receive any bonuses or pay raises which is highly unlikely after 2008 is done and over with.

But I could potentially be saving up to almost $50,000 (not even including interest rates in there), in retirement funds and liquid assets (read: cash). 2009 is going to be an even more amazing year for me. I can feel it.
