When I reviewed my finances for the end of May 2007, I predicted I would be breaking the six figure barrier around the end of the first week of June.
That didn’t happen, and it looks like I’ll be putting off that milestone for another month or so. Thanks to the fact I signed my new lease and handed over my first month’s rent payment in addition to the one-and-a-half month security deposit, I’ve taken a step backwards. The out-of-the-ordinary expenses for the month aren’t finished. I still have to hire movers for my larger pieces of furniture and pay them.
A friend of mine, who owns a business and a van, has volunteered to help with the move. I’m hesitant to ask for his help because I feel like we’ve passed the point in our lives where it’s appropriate to trade moving help for dinner, something which was common when we were in our twenties. Hiring professionals seems to be the way to go.
At the end of the month, I’ll re-evaluate my situation and try to determine when I’ll pass the six figure milestone for net worth.
(Just to be clear, my calculation of net worth isn’t my true net worth, bit it is the way I’ve been tracking it publicly for four years.)
