Earlier this month, I wrote about how I’m going to focus on my net worth since that is one area where my numbers are increasing rapidly. When you look at percentage growth, especially when you start low, you get a real hit to your ego with every dollar you pay toward debts AND every dollar you save.
So, that’s more fun. And Evan was nice enough to share his, so I’m spreading the love. I have added colors (because I’m a girl) and made a chart (because that’s really fun).
A few of you have commented that you, too, would like to start tracking net worth.
So, without further ado (and, while we’re using that phrase, if you write without further adieu what you are saying is “without anymore goodbyes” which is nonsensical and silly), here is the spreadsheet in all its glory.
Step zero: sign up for Dropbox. It’s one of my favorite tools ever. Basically it looks like a folder on your desktop, and it is, but it’s a folder on your desktop for every computer you use! Rad, right? Read my full review here.
Step one: click here to download. It’s in Excel, but I do have a copy on Google Docs (okay, Google Drive, which, by the way, is SIGNIFICANTLY less awesome than Dropbox, since you can only have one Drive account per Gmail address, so it’s email address specific, not machine specific, which really is pointless) if you prefer. Contact me if that’s the case.
Now, save the spreadsheet to your own Dropbox, change the rows, enter in your data (unless you really have a $10 car loan!) and voila! You too can start tracking.
Also? If someone who knows way more about this than I do can take a look and let me know if I altered Evan’s spreadsheet to the point of inaccuracy, I’d be forever grateful.
