Another busy month with lots of fun including a weekend away in Wales watching my boyfriend and friends go on the longest zipline in Europe and the fastest zipline in the world – far too scary for me so I was the photographer and videographer! We also went to the wedding of one of my best friends in the Lake District over a ridiculously sunny three day weekend.
It was quite an expensive month because I paid for a weekend away with my parents on the last weekend of March. This was their Christmas present and was an indulgence but worth every penny. I also had a bit of a shopping spree with my mum looking for a casual summer jacket and a more formal evening coat which I’ve had on my purchase list for a long time. We ended up at Boundary Mill and I got two high quality jackets for £135 – yes I could have purchased cheaper options but I’m very happy with both and I believe I will get a number of years wear out of them.
Luckily these splurges haven’t negatively affected my net worth improvements – assets are now at £319k and liabilities at £173k giving a net worth of £146k, a 3.8% increase compared to March. It’s looking like I will double my net worth in the first year of tracking which will be amazing! I’m also now more than half way towards my emergency fund goal of £3,300, I should achieve this in the next 3 months.
Every time I write one of these blog posts I feel re-motivated to save and watch my money grow! How has your month been? Please share your wins in the comments!
