Net Worth Aug ’17

SUMMARY: A slight modification in my New Worth schedule that resulted in a restatement for July, for comparability purposes.  I added a “Lease Obligation” line in the liabilities section for my apartment, storage unit, and gym memberships for my wife and I.  These are expenses I am contractually bound to and, therefore, added for completeness.  Main drivers continue to be growth in the life insurance cash value and debt reduction, although spending increases were noted.
