August 2016 Net Worth: $173,157.16


The picture is in honor of my friend’s wedding this upcoming weekend. I love weddings!

You can just call it a “Side Hustle Summer.” With 2-3 babysitting gigs a week along with focus groups and selling items on the side, I am bringing in an okay amount of money. I mean, it’s no steady paycheck (miss those!), but it is still wonderful getting to do whatever you want whenever you want every single day. ūüôā

  1. Congrats to your friend! My net worth for August went up a little bit not as much as I want to. I feel the same way with my car also. I just finish paying it off, and debating if I should sell or not since I will be working oversea for awhile. Not sure when will I be back in the states. Seem like you’re doing really good and have no debt. Keep up the good work.

    1. Thank you, Jay! Sell it, especially if you are going to be away for a while. It doesn’t make sense to have something just sitting there taking your money from you if it does not add value to your life. But, that’s just my two cents. ūüôā
