Net Worth Summary
I have still neglected to move my savings into a higher yielding savings account as I discussed considering in my last net worth update. Considering I could have realistically moved about $20,000 there, I probably missed out on around $50 in interest. However, what I did do was move a portion of that into a new checking account that offered a $200 sign up bonus (which should hit my account sometime early in 2023). Once the 3-month holding period on the new checking account bonus expires, I can move it over into a higher yielding savings account.
There wasn’t much else going on this past month. I’m still living off my savings and enjoying my sabbatical. I have graduate school to look forward to in January and am simply trying to recover from burnout in the meantime so I can start 2023 with a fresh start!
