Start the bus, it’s time for the kids to go back to school!
Ahh September, what a great month. Things start to cool down, the bugs outside are almost gone and its a 3 pay cheque month if you get paid bi-weekly or 5 if your weekly. Sweet, kinda feels like a bonus right? The market keeps going back and forth but the coming energy crisis in Europe will surely put a damper on things in the coming months, it seems.
Last month was a costly month to say the least. Its time to sit back a bit and watch those nickels…. Great times were had though.
My car was sounding louder than normal so I took it to the mechanic and boom – you need new tires… Arg 800 bucks later.. Nice thing is the car is super quiet now. Civic Nation!
My wife’s cousin got married. It was a great wedding. The kids really tore up the dance floor and at 11.30 they crashed hard! I was the dd this time as it was just down the street from our place. Always nice to dress up but without drinks, my dance moves are basically non-existent…. =)
We got seasons passes for Canadas Wonderland. (good for 2022/2023) My cousins came from Holland and wanted to go there and for 2 times the admission price it made sense to just get the passes. Good times. Im a pussy when it comes to roller coaster’s though. I hate heights.. but I have been pushing myself and going on more and more. It has been fun and next time I actually wanna do the drop zone. Big steps eh? Our mind is a powerful thing, its can stop you from doing fun things for no good reason at all…
Me and my buddy went up north for his uncles annual fishing trip. Lots of drinks were had and it was a rough morning fish, but I came 2nd with a 4.6 lb pike. The winner had a 5.2 lb pike. It was just sooooo hot that day with no wind at all. The fish weren’t biting. Other boats saw musky and threw everything at it with no luck. Always fun day on the water with your boy though. Until the gas runs out on the other side of the lake at night… It was a great paddle back, fighting the bugs and trying to navigate where we were going haha. That’s a first & hopefully the last.
Other than that we rocked the beach and buried the kids.. Good times.

Solar Panel Income

Last July the system generated $283.39 so we are slightly higher this year again. Woot

August Stock Purchases
This month we made 4 stock purchases.
We bought 48 additional shares at 58.60 per share. This will now allow us to drip 2 shares per quarter. This adds $102.72 to our forward income.
Slowly this is becoming one of my favourite stocks. We continue to grow this position and this month we added 20 additional shares at $57.20 per share. This purchase added a whopping $8.80 to our forward dividends. Lower yield, massive dividend growth!
If you didn’t know, this is my favourite stock we hold. Its a fantastic company with a massive moat. Trains aren’t going anywhere. In fact I find them blocking the roads with longer trains more than ever. I may of actually made this purchase while sitting there waiting for the train to pass. Another lower yield stock rocking some solid dividend raises. We added 13 more shares at just over $160 per share adding $38.09 to the gravy train. Yeah that pun was intended!
Stanley Black & Decker
A new position that has been absolutely beaten down this year. How bad? Well they are down 52.55% year to date… A dividend king offering a good price to get into, in my opinion. They had a bad quarter and plan on fixing things up. Personally most contractors I know including myself use dewalt tools and once you get that 20 volt battery you are committed to buying more 20v dewalt tools. I took a starter position on this one and it has fell even more since then. I will probably be growing this position at these current prices.
We bought 15 shares at $93.81 per share. This adds 48 bucks in forward income.
Earlier this year we sold our Smart center position in the resp and moved it into our tfsa account with the plan to add to fortis, cnr and couchetard. I thought the market would keep dropping and I could add on the cheap instead the market turned to the positive. This month I decided to put that cash to work instead of sitting idle. Swk was a mix of new cash and $ sitting in the rrsp account from previous dividends.
In total we added $197.61 to our forward income this month. The new purchases are a mix of safety, high dividend growth and value.
Financial Goals Update
- We continue our monthly donation to The Nature Conservancy of Canada of $85.
Increase Dividends by $4285.81 this year. (bringing our forward income from dividends to $13,000 a year)
The goal for 2022 is to have a forward passive income of $27,500 thousand by the end of the year. I plan on doing this by refinancing our house and taking advantage of these low interest rates. I want to max out some accounts and let compounding do their magic. Its a big goal and will almost double our current passive income.
- With New Purchases, Drips, and Dividend Raises we continued to grow the size of our dividend Portfolio. Total increased so far in 2022 is $3,325.79
Etf Monthly Minimum Purchase of $250
- This month we added 11 more units of xaw etf.
- Questrade* is great because it offers free etf trades and cheaper stock trading options than most Canadian brokers. $250.00 a month would kill us if we needed to pay high trading fees.
- * Note the questrade link is a affiliate link and at no additional cost to you, I would get a little payment if you were to sign up. You could get $50 in free trades by using my affiliate link though.
August 2022 Passive Income Conclusion
Overall a great month full of activity’s with friends and family. The dividend raises have been quiet but I think September will bring in some nice increases. Either way the income keeps coming and compounding continues to work its magic.
I hope you all had a fantastic August and your kids enjoyed their first couple days at school. My kids definitely did!
