I was just doing the usual mid-month dividend update on my dividend excel sheet and found that we have officially reached our $8,000 annual dividend goal for 2014! BOOM SHAKALAKA!
As of today we have received $8,033.51 in dividend income! To put this in perspective, it means that we received $22.89 each day starting from January 1st. That's for doing absolutely nothing!!! $22.89 is a pretty significant amount if you were working in a low wage job. We're scheduled to receive more dividends later in December so the total annual dividend amount will be higher and the dollar per day amount may get higher too! I will do a December update in January once all the dividends are recorded.
For now I'll do my happy dance. 😀
