At the end of every month, I post an update about my networth. I have seen many other financial bloggers posting it regularly, and it is very motivating to see their progress over the years. This blog is a log of my journey towards financial independence, so it’s only fair to post this small update every month. I believe financial freedom is a long journey with small changes accumulating every month turning into a snowball. This minor update every month should be living proof of that.

My passive income for March is ₹3,730. I received interim dividends from the stock portfolio. The ultimate aim is to have my passive income cover all of my expenses. It is going to be a daunting task, but I am confident that in due time it will turn into a snowball.
I currently stay in a one bedroom apartment with my parents. I do have expenses on groceries, electricity bills and other utilities but nothing in terms of rent or mortgage.
I do not have any plans to buy a house in the near future. Although after my marriage I will inevitably have to shift to a two bedroom house on rent.
I do not have any long term debt and intend to keep it that way.
My average expenses for every month is around ₹60,000. I do not have any extravagant expenses. I want to bring them down to ₹50,000 in next two months. Once I have a family, I am going to have more costs anyway. I want to make sure that my expenses come down by 35% to make room for these new expenses after marriage.
I’ll keep providing these monthly updates. I hope you enjoy reading it.
