July 2017 Update

Hope everyone had a great July!

Personal Highlights for July:

  • Got the house de-cluttered, cleaned – listed and SOLD!
  • Spent a lot of the month out at the cabin with the family.
  • Finished reading “A field guide to lies: Critical thinking in the information age” by Daniel Levitin (Great book- highly recommend it)
  • Kids Update – Took Holland to Boardwalk Days @ Winnipeg Beach – bought her first ice cream & Isaac turned 3 and is growing like crazy..he is also still a hairy little bastard!(See below)

    Isaac 3 months

Financial Highlights:

  • While cleaning house – rolled and cashed in my change – which resulted in $1167 – which went straight to my line of credit!
  • Paid down another 10% on line of credit.
  • One of my favorite stocks had a reverse split and got listed on the NYSE! (Caledonia)
  • Got our first government child benefit cheque! Thanks JT!
  • Although no stock purchases will be made until L.O.C is paid off – I’ve continued my regular bi-weekly fund purchases, spousal RSP purchases & and saw a few shares DRIP (more on that below)

Now on to the fun stuff.

Portfolio Update:

My portfolio saw a slight increase in value – however still down from the April high. Total value is back to $270,259.42  This represents a month over month increase of 0.50%.  I’m still expecting a pull back so I am not too concerned with the monthly fluctuations right now.

How was YOUR month?
