April Dividend Income

After 35 years of clocking in and out of work and religiously saving at least 10% annually in my 401K every year, my countdown to financial independence is in sight. Each month is a step closer and let’s look at how this past month is getting me there.

For the month of March I made $3,828.61; a decrease of -3.34% versus this time last year.  The main culprit for the decrease was my BGS payment sliding out into early May versus April of last year.

In April I received 7 dividend raises from ARTNA, BHB, DFS, IBM, JNJ, PG and SO.  A solid month for raises that should add an additional $131 to my annual income going forward. 

On the home I haven’t had much time as for some reason work has become stressful and I’ve been mentally fatigued lately.  Unfortunately, it has spilled into early May but hopefully things will lighten up soon.
