I’ve been asking this question more and more recently. I ran a poll on Twitter quite a while back and most of the people who answered said they weren’t paying for their Credit Cards. So I decided It was time I crunch some numbers. Having recently figured out that Cash Back was the king (check out the article here), I wanted to find out if the Free Cash Back card was ...

So here’s a bit of an update for what’s going on in October. Most importantly, I achieved my objective of maximizing my RRSP! Woop! And with the extra contributions I have been hard at work. You can see here which stocks were already on my radar. I decided to go ahead and buy some shares of Alimentation Couche-tard (ATD.B), 21 shares to be precise. I also increased my position in Dream Global REIT ...

I feel like telling you guys a story, so I will. That’s what nice about blogging, you always have the impression someone is listening as you write. My love of money is rooted deep, very deep. My father was alway good with money and I would consider him a very wise spender. I can say the same about his father before him, who still working by the way… 86 years old! ...

September was pretty busy. I managed to follow my August plan which was to add to my position in Dream Global REIT (DRG.UN) in order to enable my DRIP cycles to earn a new share every single month. I also initiated a new position in Dollorama Inc (DOL) right before it shot up by double digits! For once, the timing was right. Read about some of my September activity here. ...

The Situation: As some of you might have noticed in my dividend updates, I receive most of my dividends from one source. This source if Financial 15 (FTN). FTN currently represents about 30% of my TFSA and 87% of my RRSP. Yeah, 87%! This is the result of a big FTN transfer I’ve made recently from my TFSA to my newly opened RRSP. So, for a short while there, FTN actually ...

Enough is enough. Time to squeeze the lemon dry. Ever since I’ve changed to a Cash Back CC (see why I did the switch), I’ve noticed a lot of blogs such as the Dividend Diplomats (and others) put out ”Side Income” updates. It quickly became clear to me that opportunities were passing me by… I decided it was time try to find other ways to maximize the money that could potentially be ...

Dividend investors rejoice! Earlier today, Savaria Corp (FYI: Canadian company that focuses on helping the disabled/elderly gain mobility and have a better quality of life. In other words, they adapt homes, stairs, buildings, vehicles, etc.) announced a MASSIVE dividend increase from $0.26 to $0.36 (38.5%). The dividend was paid on a quarterly basis but will now be paid every month! The company feels very comfortable in projecting continued growth over the ...

Another month in the books! Since I’m not expecting any more dividends in August (and a prolonged vacation is coming up), I’m releasing this update slightly before the actual end-of-month. As mentioned in the July update, I now have a TFSA and an RRSP as the result of a transfer. Here are the dividends I have received in August 2017 from both of these accounts: TFSA: Financial 15 (FTN): $168.44 Enbridge Income Fund Holdings (ENF): ...
