I finished the Quarterly Financial Statement this morning and while the market is down, we still have $815,000 in our retirement accounts. Since we aren't planning to take any withdrawals until we have to at age 70 1/2, I try to focus on how we are buying while the market is down and hoping that the market will have recovered in 5 1/2 years. Total Net Worth is down correspondingly to $1,352,678.
We need to set up a new Excel Spreadsheet and graph. I have been tracking on the current StarOffice spreadsheet since 1996 and so much of our investments, properties, and savings has changed. It is fun to look back and see how the graph has risen but I think it would be cleaner and easier to do on a nice fresh Excel Spreadsheet.
