Monthly Dividend Update

Happy April!  Almost all the snow is gone, the birds are out and about and NHL Playoffs are only a week and half away!  Unfortunately the Jets have been playing like shit for the last few months..oh well.

Personal Highlights for March:

  • Played the last few games of our indoor soccer season.  Not sure if I am going to play over the summer or not yet.  I registered my daughter (3 years old) for soccer, so she will start in May!
  • Amber and I went to the last Jets home game of the year- and met up with some friends before and after for dinner & drinks.  The game was a stinker – but had a good time nonetheless.
  • Completed, Filed and Received our income tax rebates!  I can’t say enough good things about SIMPLETAX.  I always used Turbotax in the past (which is a fine program as well) – but going forward I will definitely continue to use Simpletax!  No referral links/codes – just a genuine review of a great product!
  • Now that the weather is finally getting nice – have started the yard cleanup, and have been able to play with the kids outside a lot more.  It’s supposed to be +14 on Saturday! Can’t wait!
  • Website traffic hit an all time high for the third month in a row!  I’m starting to see a lot more organic search traffic which is nice.

Financial Highlights for March:

  • Continued bi weekly payments into spousal RRSP  (30 units of US Equity Index Fund)
  • Stopped automatic contributions into my RRSP, and am now putting that cash into my TFSA.
  • I was paid by 8 companies and 1 funds.  I Dripped 43 new shares/units.
  • Portfolio hit an all time high

  2. I don’t drip my holdings, but 43 shares added to your portfolios is awesome! Great progress! You almost hit $500 this month! That definitely helps to grow!


  3. Looks like a solid showing for the month. Keep collecting and dripping. Fastest way to grow that snowball. For now, I reinvest all my dividends. Thanks for sharing.
