Insights: Net Worth Chart

Go Back

This is your net worth chart. It shows your total savings minus your total debt for every month of data that you have saved. Some scenarios to look out for:

  • Negative net worth and almost no savings: the priority here should be to build up a small emergency fund, like $1,000 or one month of expenses, then focus on paying off debt.
  • Negative net worth but lots of savings: it may be worth using some of your savings to pay off a chunk of your debt. Without the interest payments dragging you down, it will be easier to build up those savings later.
  • Positive net worth with debt: in this case, it makes more sense to use savings to pay off debt. Once debt free, any extra cash can go back into savings.
  • Positive net worth and no debt: this is the goal – without debt dragging you down, you can focus on building your savings, which will grow with interest if they're invested well.
