What does Net Worth mean?
Let’s say you sold everything you owned. Once you sold it, you also planned to pay back any outstanding balances such as mortgages or credit card balances. What’s left is your net worth.
Are you curious to find out what you’re worth? Let’s get started.

Preparation Steps to Calculating Your Net Worth
Step 1: Print our Net Worth Reports below. There are three pages: Assets, Liabilities and a Summary page.
This is the date you are determining your net worth. We find that December 31st works well. Or, if it’s easier, simply pick the last day of last month.
Step 3: Gather statements from all of your accounts. This includes bank accounts, retirement plans, mortgages, and loans.
You’ll need the statements from all of your accounts to show you the ending balances as of the date you selected. So, for our example, we are looking for all bank account statements, credit card bills, and mortgage payments as of December 31st.
Tip: If you’re not sure where to start, grab your last federal income tax return. Look for:
Capital Gains – to show investments you hold
Bank interest – to determine cash in bank accounts
Dividend income – to find out if you own any investments like stocks or mutual funds
Mortgage interest paid to banks – to show any loans
Your tax return will list the names of the financial institutions where you have income-bearing accounts.
In addition, your checkbook will be helpful, or your most recent checking account statement from your bank. This will show you the names of the financial institutions where you make credit card, mortgage and car loan payments.
Once you have the names of the financial institutions, and can start to gather the necessary statements.
Compiling Your Net Worth
On the Assets page of the Net Worth Report, list everything you own. Include things like your house, car, boat, bank accounts, 401k and IRAs. Here are the main types of assets:
Each item is an asset, and will need a dollar value. Bank accounts and retirement plan values can be found on your statements. To value your car, consider using Kelly Blue Book. Remember that you are not listing the amount you paid for the items, but rather what the item is currently worth.
Here is a sample of assets:
On the Liabilities page of the Net Worth Report, list everything you owe. Include things like the balance on your mortgage, the balance of your car payment, and your credit card balances.
Here is a sample of liabilities:
Net Worth Summary
Finally, on the Summary page of the Net Worth Report, add up of your assets, and subtract your liabilities. This is what you are worth.
Continuing with our example:
How are you doing? A positive number indicates that your finances are healthy, and you should continue on this track. A negative number indicates that you owe more than your worth. Consider earning more income, or reducing your expenses so that you can pay off your liabilities.

Have you ever seen a perfectly organized toy room? They are so nice to look at. There’s a place for everything. Check out these ideas for storing matchbox cars, track and loops. You’ll be one step closer to having that organized playroom.
The first step is to have car cases. Chances are you’ll need more than one. The typical case holds about 48 cars.
Car cases are great because your child can easily transport them.
We’ve found the easiest way to store the orange track is in a drawer. The pieces lay flat, and are easy to put away. We opted for a Sterilite cart with drawers. The wheels are optional, and we chose not to attach them to our unit.
For now, one drawer has all of the matchbox track, but there’s room to expand if necessary.
Large drawer or toy box
Some of the larger loops are played with more often if you keep them assembled. For our large two loop race track, we chose to store it in a deep drawer of our train table. We have the train table pictured below.
This train table is made by Kidcraft, and it’s called Metropolis. We have owned ours for several years, and it was money well spent. We especially enjoy the huge storage below. It also converts into a coffee table, so it’s a versatile piece of furniture.
