October Net Worth & Spending: +$25,108

September Net Worth & Spending: +$25,645

My mental space has…

December Net Worth & Spending: +$726 NW

This past month has been a crazy month in both spending, celebrating and saying farewell.   December and the year 2017 ended on a high after celebrating Mr. Piggybanks’ big 30th birthday, hanging out with new and old friends, travelling non-stop, saying farewells, enjoying Christmas back at home and bringing in the New Year with…
