WHO MAY END UP A HOMEOWNER SOON?
More info to come at a later date. I’m pretty excited and will lay out all the cash & numbers once it’s completed.
It will save me about $200,000 in the long run if my math is correct.

As you can see I’ve upped my dividends game.
My capital has not changed, but my dividends have gone up by $300 a month approximately. I’ve been pushing my cash into dividend share purchases.
I need to make about $18,000 – $24,000 in dividends to live ‘bare bones’ style.
Ideally, I want $50,000 in dividends so that I pay $200 in taxes.
On average, I clear about $550 in dividends each month right now which is $6600 a year.
I need to make up another $12,000 in dividends and I can live off my investments with very minimal spending.
I’d need a capital of another $500,000 to make this happen.
It’d be neat to live off dividends or at least to have that as a plan B or C while I am not working.
For now however, I still plan on putting it on a DRIP to buy more shares until I actually decide to take the money in cash instead in 10+ years.
…and I am still going to work.
