January 2017 Net Worth Update (+$12,144)




Highlights for January

  • We started off the year playing catch-up from 2016 We paid our annual real estate taxes on 2 properties in the beginning of January. We also had a large chunk of our holiday spending hit our balance sheets in January.
  • In January I had my longest flight travel ever - a business trip from US to India via Hong Kong. The extended travel time wasn't as bad as I had expected, although I spent more time traveling than I did in India. I wouldn't mind getting the chance to spend more time in India in the future.
  • We paid our annual auto insurance premiums (~$1k) this month. We currently use Erie Insurance and tempted to start shopping around again for a better deal, but maybe next year.
  • January was a pretty quite month otherwise. My wife and I started discussing vacation plans for 2017, but nothing definitive. It will be hard to top the 3 international trips we took in 2016.
