Thoughts and Comments on Our Net Worth
  1. The rising market is helping our bottom line...for now.  
  2. I'm really looking forward to paying off that credit card debt!  I'm done with credit cards; they're dangerous.
  3. I have got to get that mortgage balanced refinanced.  My current rate of 5.875% is just too high.  I feel like I'm leaving money on the table by not taking care of this. 
  4. The HELOC will increase as I borrow from it to finance the rest of 2013.  As soon as we receive our IRA distributions in January, we will park the money in the HELOC and reduce that balance.  
  5. We took our last 457 distribution for the year; it was a $5,000 withdrawal.  
  6. In January I will adjust the value of our cars; they're probably worth less than $3,000.
  7. Overall, our net worth increased a little over $12,000 since October.  Thank you Mr. Market.

Mr. Mills,

Thank you very much for posting your blog - it is an inspiration and best of luck to get that net worth of a million! One process I use that might be helpful to achieve goal #3 is that when bond yields are low, I transfer in extra payments on my mortgage @5.375% APR to substitute as part of my bond allocation in my investment portfolio. If you already do this, please disregard, I haven't read all your blog postings yet. However, if you can refinance your mortgage, all the better. Much enjoy the blog! Thanks.
