Going Greener Monthly Challenge 2

This month I took the decision not to use any straws, neither in the house nor outside. Of course if I really loved them, I could still buy environmentally friendly ones to have at home. But I don’t really need them, and I have to admit that most of the time I use them outside home just out of habit. From now on, I will not buy any and not accept from any shop. This is my monthly action on my my way towards a greener life!

Have you realized how much money you can save by being environmentally friendly? 🙂

Financial Statement – March

March was a pretty good month. I am very proud to say that we were able to increase our net worth by 6.5k mostly due to the fact that we did not spend much + some extra cash that I got from my previous employer.

Cash 50,700
Peer to Peer 857
Pensions 74,980
Security deposit for current house 4,000
Rental Property #1 100,000
Rental Property #2 133,000
Debt (Rental Property #2) -94,000
Total networth 269,537

Savings rate = 52%

I am still waiting for property #2 to be completely built in order to officially buy it. The property is not officially mine yet, I have just paid part of it in advance while it was still in construction. There is always some sort of risk in these businesses, I have to admit I am nervous and I will be until the day I get to sign the contract!
