Now that I’m in my new job we were able to immediately increase our mortgage payments. We’re now paying more in principal than in interest again! And we’ll have it paid off nine years sooner. Still not fast enough but moving in the right direction.
On a note unrelated to net worth, I finally got Apple Pay set up on my phone. I’m a bit of a tech geek, so despite the fact it won’t help at all with reaching financial independence, I’m pretty stoked about it.
The fact we’re paying more off our mortgage means our net worth figures are moving a bit faster again now. Again, not as fast as they need to, but heading in the right direction.
|KiwiSaver – Mr R2A||$22,200.43|
|KiwiSaver – Mrs R2A||$13,575.4|
|Eat My Lunch||$500|
That’s an increase of $1535.28 over last month, or 0.78%.
Our next move needs to be to start actively contributing more to Sharesies again. It’s been quietly growing along with the stockmarket, but we won’t get to our goal for the year if we don’t put more money into it. We are, of course, still heavily invested in shares through our KiwiSaver funds. But it’s nice to have something we can access before we turn 65 or leave the country 🙂
