Hello, this is my end of September, beginning of October net worth update. Sorry that it is late. I have been sidetracked with various projects and current events but was determined to post. I might switch to a quarterly update in 2017. One reason for this is based on my decision to save up enough money to purchase a car in cash. I do not take out car loans and realize that I need to have enough money set aside to immediately purchase another car, if the need arises, since my current car has over 200,000 miles. So I guess you could say the savings is a type of emergency fund. Because a large portion of my income will be going towards saving for a car, I will be unable to place a significant portion of my income into my brokerage account. I am thinking that since I will be adding less money to my brokerage account there will be less changes to report in monthly updates.
I have decided to save for a car because I realize that I will need a new vehicle eventually. I would like to avoid buying a car but realize that this is not possible or realistic. A few weeks ago my current car needed a $600 repair and this was the catalyst that forced me to face the fact that I will need another vehicle someday and sooner rather than later.
And since I am considering quitting my job because of a forced, and completely unconstitutional, vaccine that will be forced upon us next fall at my place of work, I am attempting to save for major purchases with the income that I am earning now. I have been considering drastically lowering my work hours to 40 hours biweekly because my monthly bills are $570 and my dividend income is almost able to cover this amount. This is something I have been thinking about for almost a year but I am not quite yet ready nor am I ready to quit, quitting next year seems premature so I am still deciding. In the meantime I am saving for a car and working on a side hustle with ebay. I have sold a few things on ebay in the past but have decided to really go for it and see how much I can earn per month. I would like to pay my monthly bills with ebay money and continue to reinvest the dividends. I have almost finished prepping a spare room for ebay shipping. I bought a wireless printer, large table, mannequin, and shipping supplies.
These are some pictures I took about a week ago at a nearby park. It was such a beautiful fall evening, geese could be heard overhead, the air was warm, a nice breeze was blowing, the fall colors were lovely….
and then this bright object appeared in the sky at dusk.
Does anyone know what it is? It is too big to be an airplane…I learned something new that night.
And to top it off later that evening the moon appeared and was very bright.
Stay tuned for more updates!
