A few things happened this month that brought down our net worth month-over-month, for the first time since we starting tracking on this blog. We're glad that it happened as the previous 5 months had spectacular results, which could have led to the (wrong) belief that it is smooth sailing all the time.

The "Bank Accounts" was the bucket that took the heaviest hit due a couple major expenses, and the "Investments" bucket had another significant outflow - all of which were anticipated and accounted for. 

The first was M's tuition payment for the summer semester, which was $4,174. 

The second was payment of $2,200 for a hardscaping project for which we've been specifically saving for a year. There will be more spending on associated landscaping/hardscaping projects in the summer months.

The third was a payment of $1,578 to a clinic where W had undergone a procedure a couple of months back. This money came out of our HSA, which is part of our Investments bucket.

What is a good sign is that our Retirement bucket had significant inflow (which is not broken down in the chart above as we give the "final" number which is comprised of the gains and the contributions). Our debts also continue to go down.
