Highlights for December
-All credit card debt (except current month's purchases) is in the form of 0% APR balance transfers earning interest in my savings accounts.
-I saved some money on a car repair by buying the car parts myself and having the mechanic install them.
-I added an estimated $3,000 in tax liability to offset my estimated increased tax liability.
-I began thinking about what my 2006 net worth goal should be and finalized my net worth goal for 2006 at $265,000.
-I determined my annual saving rate for 2005 was almost 57% of my pre-tax income.
-After I met my 2005 net worth goal, I splurged and took advantage of some of the after christmas sales to celebrate my success.

Congrats on ending positive going into the new year. Since I am more of a visual person, I entered the net worth percent changes for the past four months (when available) of personal finance bloggers and created the following graph. I will include your data shortly.http://neos-nest-egg.blogspot.com/2006/01/personal-finance-bloggers-net-worth_03.htmlNeo

If I was a thief I would have some clues about you !I learnt once that money can help to bring happiness but you better have to be a bit discret about it usually if you want to enjoy it.Good luck anyway !
