Well, I think I’m finally safely over the $60,000 net worth mark! Shortly after I posted my October net worth, it jumped over $60,000 and hasn’t gone back under since. Woohoo! That feels good. I’m more happy with this milestone than I was when I hit $50,000 net worth. Why? Probably because it’s taken me many more months to go from $50,000 to $60,000 than it took to go from $40,000 to $50,000. This month is also a three paycheck month for me, so I’m getting pretty excited to see my net worth on November 1st.
Last week my employer handed out $100 Visa gift cards to all full time employees for all their hard work over the year. That was a nice, unexpected bonus. I bought last week’s groceries with mine. I still have money left on it, so I’ll probably be buying more groceries with the remainder. Mr. Frugal Turtle also gave me his gift card (we both work for the same company). So, I’ll be buying groceries with his gift card as well. Nice! Free groceries for weeks!
I bought a pumpkin last week and I’m going to attempt to roast it. We’ll see how it goes. I read up on how to do it correctly, so hopefully I’ll have pumpkin puree for the whole year. Also, I’m extremely excited about roasting the seeds. Yum!
I still have yet to hear about the job that I interviewed for a couple weeks ago. I’m almost on the verge of giving up on hearing if I got it or not. The woman I interviewed with said I would hear something within a couple of days, so I’m not sure what’s taking so long. I know companies can drag their feet on the hiring process, which is why I haven’t given up all hope. I’m still looking for new job prospects daily, but unfortunately there’s not a whole lot going on in this area. There are larger cities about an hour to an hour and a half drive away. I don’t think I want to commute that far every day, so I’m feeling stuck, Fortunately, I have a job, and I’ll keep working there until I find something that fits me.
