May 2014 Net Worth Update +1.25%

As you can see from the numbers below I've managed to post another modest increase this month thanks to the markets performing well. This is now the eight month in a row that I've increased my net worth since returning from my trip to Asia last October. Since then I've been focusing more on my expenses and savings and I am finally beginning to see some payoff. By the next update I am expecting a sizeable increase due to May being a three-paycheque-month and my usual plan of saving the entire amount of one of them. I have always based my monthly budgets on receiving two paycheques and so the two times during the year when I receive a third I can put that straight to savings. I recognize that this probably wouldn't work for people that have bi-weekly mortgage payments to deal with but it could be useful for people like me that pay rent monthly.
