I have NC’d for this... thought it would be funny off the back of the “what class are you thread?”

Have you ever calculated your net worth?
How much is cash?

Having a quick think between properties and savings we are at about 650k ...55k is cash savings, another 50k is shares and investments

Am I being unreasonable?

This is really not an AIBU... Perhaps try in the money matters forum?


MidnightCircus · 24/12/2019 16:49

Hahaha nah, for me it's funny. As the answer is....sweet FA.


RufusthebewiIderedreindeer · 24/12/2019 16:49

I think i worked it out to about 950k

But that is us selling the house, shares and taking dh FULL pension...which i assume would be reduced by it would be if we pretend that we wouldn’t have to pay any tax

I think if we empty the childrens bank accounts we could break a mil

I keep track of things to help with financial planning. I’d say not very much of actual cash sitting about - less than 10% of the total pot but substantially more in pretty liquid investments.


RufusthebewiIderedreindeer · 24/12/2019 16:55

Though lockheart is right...


KittenVsXmastree · 24/12/2019 16:56

Yes, DH's last job wanted a crazy amount of info to check he wasnt in hidden debt that could make him bribable. It actually came to quite a lot with the house, cars, savings etc.


LakieLady · 24/12/2019 16:56

We're at about £450-460k, and £400k of that is the house. I'm already getting my (paltry) pension, DP has no pension worth speaking of.


PortiaCastis · 24/12/2019 16:58

Three fifths of five eights of fuck all Xmas Grin
Seriously though I inherited a holiday let business of 8 cottages so I'd probably be worth a few bob if I sold them all but as they're my bread and butter I'm not going to


Thecathouse · 24/12/2019 16:59

How much is cash (including bank right?) 61p

Other stuff no more than £100, dobt have anything worth much so yay HmmGrin


CareOfPunts · 24/12/2019 17:01

Probably only around £100k net. Not much is it! Would be more if we added on stuff like death in service from work.


Greysparkles · 24/12/2019 17:06

I have around minus 5k so all you lot can piss off


bridgetreilly · 24/12/2019 17:06

About £5k, I'd guess, including £2.5k cash (payday yesterday), an old car and whatever you'd get for the rest of my possessions - nothing new, nothing valuable. I don't own a house or any other investments.


Ohholyknight · 24/12/2019 17:07

@RufusthebewiIderedreindeer ooh I didn’t include pensions or children’s accounts!!Blush

50 pence and a curly wurly…
(I'm lying, I ate the curly wurly)


MrsDilligaf · 24/12/2019 17:08

I genuinely don't care. We have enough money in the bank, no debt, good pensions and our mortgage is small.

I don't see how comparing an arbitrary figure could be classed as fun though. To some people having a thousand quid in the bank means that they are skint; for others the same amount would feel like a huge amount.


Everythingmagnolia · 24/12/2019 17:10

It's not nice to brag OP


Sparklesocks · 24/12/2019 17:11

Well I have a decent collection of tights, some haven’t even got ladders in yet. Oh and lots of 10p carrier bags, I’m sure they all up.


nocluewhattodoo · 24/12/2019 17:12

I'm probably worth minus numbers seeing as I live in my overdraft, own no property, have no investments and have pawned pretty much everything I have of value in the last 5 years.


goodwinter · 24/12/2019 17:25

I'm definitely in the negative - mortgage and student loan debt.


vassdal · 24/12/2019 17:29

It's not fun for those facing Christmas with nothing or with debts. I'm sure you didn't mean your post to sound braggy.
Tasteless thread.


raspberryk · 24/12/2019 17:30

If you count my student loan I'm in minus I expect.


BuntyBonus · 24/12/2019 17:39

This thread only serves to make the wealthy feel even better about themselves and the not wealthy feel even worse. Not exactly festive is it.
