Weekend Reading – camping edition

The weather has been getting better and better here in Vancouver. The temperature is suppose to hit the 20’s this weekend! NICE! This weekend we’re heading to the woods for a family camping trip. It will be the first camping trip with Baby T so that will be interesting. I’m very much looking forward to being completely disconnected from technology for a couple of days. Because work has been keeping me busy lately, it will be good to spend some time in the great outdoors, relax, and feeling grounded.

On investment front we’re working hard to save more money so we can contribute the new TFSA contribution room for this year. At $9,000 for Mrs. T and I all together, that will allow us to bring in even more tax-free dividend income. We definitely need to take advantage of this excellent opportunity. While I have not tallied our April dividend income just yet, I think we’ll probably end up in the $800 range. A pretty solid number for doing nothing at all don’t you think? Stay tuned for our April dividend income next week.

Here are some articles that I wrote recently:

For now I’ll leave you to some excellent articles that I’ve came across:

Mr. SSC says we should take advantage of employer programs for free money! I never understand why some people say no to free money.

Mark @ My Own Advisor says we should get over it, with the $10,000 TFSA limit everyone wins. Totally agree with Mark.

Barry @ Money We Have asks why parents don’t like free government money. Again I do not understand why people say no to free money then complains that they don’t have enough money to go around. Come on!

Jason @ Dividend Mantra shared his trip report of 2015 Berkshire Hathaway Annual Shareholders Meeting. Due to schedule conflict I couldn’t make it this year. I hope to go to the Berkshire Hathaway AGM in the near future.

Lanny @ Dividend Diplomats shares Top 5 low dividend yield, high dividend growth stocks. A great list as high dividend growth is very important when it comes to dividend stock investing.
