Dividend & Family Update

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.
