As promised, here is another of my Acorn Investment App updates. What started at $0 in August 2017, and then went to $75, and finally surpassed $500 is now at $846.08!

In fact, sometimes a picture is worth more than words.  Here is a summary of all the screenshots I’ve taken since I started my Acorns account back in August of 2017:

That first one on the left was back in September or October of 2017.  Just over 5 months ago.  And look as the months go by: more, more, & more!

Last month, my strive was as follows: get to $1,000 before the end of March, and $1,500 by August (the 1-year mark).  It’s February 26th now.  I am on track.  I may have to add an extra $50 beyond the roundups and recurring deposits, but that’s my mission: $1,000 before the end of March–and I’m gonna do my darndest to get there.


P.S. – I don’t only keep my money in Acorns.  My entire ‘portfolio’ consists of: index funds (via Acorns), individual stocks (via RobinHood & Stockpile), treasury bonds, bills, notes, and savings bonds (via, Whole & Term Life insurance (via NY Life), and regular cash savings accounts (, formerly INGdirect).  In order, from safest to more risky: Cash savings, NY Life accumulated cash value, US Treasury stuff, index funds, then individual stocks.
