A closer look at my asset/debt classes
- Cash: The 1+% boost comes from the regular bit of cash I stash for my charity fund and whatever extra money I have from my paycheck that hadn't been allocated.
- Bonds/Retirement: No change with bonds. The 4+% boost in retirement comes mainly from my contribution to my Roth IRA ($1,600) and a little bump in earnings it provided. My 401k isn't losing as much money these days. Only a 7% loss instead of 14% last time I blogged about it. I'll take that as a win.
- Credit Cards: Of the $431, $96 was for groceries and $335 was a plane ticket to visit a significant other (more on that later). These debts will be paid off with the next pay check. No worries there.
