The year is almost over, and things are moving too fast!
Personal Highlights for September:
- For those that missed my last post, I am slowly recovering from a torn labrum in my shoulder. I’ve been in a sling the last 2 weeks, and have a meeting with a specialist in 2 weeks to determine next steps.
- Just got back from England for a work trip. Still getting caught up. It was a good trip, didn’t get to do much touristy things, as I was only there 3 nights, and had 15 meetings booked. It was a lot harder than normal as well, since I am currently down to 1 usable arm.
- Had our hockey pool draft last night. Feeling okay about my team. Very glad hockey is back this week! The Jets start the season in 3 days!
Financial Highlights for September:
- Continued bi weekly payments into RRSPs & Spousal RSP.
- Pretty slow month as far as dividends go – BUT the spousal RRSP that I set up in June last year for Amber cracked $10,000!
- Even with no new stock purchases, dripped 28 new shares/units. I was paid from 10 companies and 1 fund
- With 3 months to go, I am averaging $475 per month in dividends in 2018, which is $130 more per month in dividends compared to 2017.
