Fiscal Update – Nov 2011

That 4% global stock rally a couple days ago was insane. First time I’ve ever seen something like that. I basically became $3,500 richer within the first opening hour! At least on paper anyway. That’s comparable to a CEO’s wage.

     Got an extra payment from my part-time job because of how their accounting works. Paid down some debt. Spent a lot on books and games. Bought a personal finance title called Millionaire Teacher, by Andrew Hallam. Also purchased the new Super Mario game and Uncharted 3, Collector’s Edition. Amazon made a killing from my wallet in November. Spent a little less than usual on groceries though. Didn’t go too much over budget overall.

*Side Income:
  • Part-Time Work = $1,000


  • Dividends = $200

*Discretionary Spending:

    • Eating Out = $100


  • Others = $400

*Net Worth: (MoM)

    • Assets:


  • Cash = $4,100 (+$600)
  • Stocks = $59,100 (-$1,200)
  • RRSP = $20,700 (UNCH)
  • Home  = $243,000 
  • Liabilities:
  • Mortgage = $208,800 (-$300) 
  • Bank Loans = $20,200 (-$3,000) 
*Total Net Worth = $97,900 ( +2.84%) 

* Numbers are rounded to the nearest $100.

Hey Nice to see that someone else is also striving for financial independence at a young age. While I'm a bit older than you are (30) I am also striving for financial independence. I'm aiming for about 40. Like you i'm trying to increase my dividend income.

Keep up the good work.
