February 2016: Income & Expenses

    February ended up being a fairly standard month for my income and expenses. Work income was a bit lower than usual though, due to working fewer hours. I did mostly enjoy the extra rest though. Also kept my spending down nicely for the most part, with only one irregular expense, but well worth it.

    Generally speaking at the moment I do not usually aim to work full-time hours at my current work position. I prefer to have a bit more free time while I am able to get it for now. Even if that means a slight hit in my income, I value the extra free time higher than a few more dollars. I offset that by being my fairly frugal self, not spending a lot nor going out to restaurants, bars or events too often. Luckily for me, my lovely lady also usually prefers to relax at home as well. Although sorry March's budget, a sushi date is coming up. Yum!

February 2016: Dividend Update!

    As 2016 continues on, February has already passed us. Even with the extra day afforded to us from having a leap year! With the extra day or not, my dividends have steadily kept on coming in. Even better they continue to grow at a steady pace (for the most part).
    February was another great month of dividends for me. Once again getting over $100 in dividend income, and progressively pulling ahead of the previous comparable months dividend income by $8.76. Also a huge improvement from February 2014, where that months dividends were $44.89.
