May 2016 – net worth and expenses 

The taxes are back! For the first time (month) this year my tax liability has grown. This is good news in so far this means I’m in positive terrain.

Also, this is the first time for our net worth to be over 300k! My goal is to never go back below it. 😀

  • brokerage accounts 272.3 (+30k)
  • ETFs 6.6k (+0.6k)
  • cash 19.3k (-20.0k)
  • alternative investments 32.6k (-0.4k)
  • taxes -25.1k
  • total 305.7k (+7.6k)

I transfered 20k from cash to brokerage.

Monthly Expenses

  • January 2.8k
  • February 2.6k
  • March 3.4k
  • April 3.7k
  • May 3.3k

Lately I seem to be on a shopping spree that started in March. June was a very inexpensive month last year. Unfortunately we will not be able to repeat that – there is at least 600 Euros (additional) expenses for a vacation.

Overall it does not look good for our yearly goal of 36k expenses.
