June 2022 Net Worth Update (-$135,326.74)

June was another down month for our net worth as markets continue to fall. Our net worth decreased $135,326.74 from last month to a total of $1,246,250.49 (see spreadsheet screenshot). 

Retirement Accounts
Our retirement accounts are comprised of our 401(k)s, our Roth IRAs and our Traditional IRAs.  We contribute 6% to my wife’s 401(k).  My wife’s company matches up to 6% of her 401(K) contribution and chips in an additional 3% on top of the match at the end of the year (vests over 5 years).  This month, she contributed $812.58to her 401(k).  Since I am unemployed, I did not contribute anything to my retirement accounts.  The total balance of our retirement accounts decreased $65,295.83 from last month to a total of $452,617.32.  

Brokerage Account
Currently, our brokerage account consists of stocks and cryptocurrency (I prefer to track crypto in the “Brokerage Accounts” field rather than “Cash & Savings Accounts”).  The total current value of our brokerage accounts is $191,184.38, down $61,006.41 from last month.

Cash & Savings Account
Cash and savings accounts consists of a small sum of cash at home, our online savings accounts balance and stablecoins that we earn interest on. It does not include our checking account balance that we use to pay our bills each month.  Our savings increased $928.84 this month to a total of $9,711.45.

College Savings Accounts
Our kids have 529 Plans through Vanguard.  This month, we contributed $0 to our son’s 529 Plan and it decreased $3,770.40 from last month to a total balance of $43,437.65.  We contributed $0 to our daughter’s 529 Plan and it decreased $2,297.95 from last month to a total balance of $28,281.63. Our total 2022 contributions so far are $0 for our son and $50 for our daughter.

For our home value, we use the $528K purchase price that we paid in July 2016.  Current comps in the area are ~$930K.  We paid off our home in September 2021.

My wife drives a company vehicle and has a company gas card.  I drive a 2017 SUV (~85K miles) that we own that is paid off.  In addition, we own a 2013 ski boat that is paid off.

New Vehicle Fund
I combined our new vehicle fund with our taxable brokerage accounts. 

Credit Card Balance
Normally, all of our credit card debt is paid in full each month, however, we used a 0% credit card to pay for just over $23,590 of our income taxes.  This allowed us to keep some cash in the bank for emergencies. The card is 0% for 15 months and the current balance is $15,981.25.
