For the month of June I decided to also include my IRA that I started in April. I started a new job this year and transferred my 401k from my previous employer to a place where I was in control. This gave me the freedom to focus on quality stocks that pay decent dividends. I do contribute 6% pretax into my current employer's 401k. This is solely to get the "free" money they match. The only downside to that is I won't be 100% vested in until I work for them for 4 years. I guess that makes it not entirely free. I will probably include those numbers as well when I post my net worth.
My taxable account generated a whopping $26.31. That is barely enough money to buy my family one meal at a fast food restaurant. It isn't much but it is something I know will continue to grow over time.
My IRA is about 4 times the size of my taxable account. For June this generated $379.86. This is enough income to pay for my electric, gas and cable bills. Not bad at all. Unfortunately I can't touch this until I am well past my goal of early retirement.
This is my best month yet with a combined total of $406.17. See the numbers on my dividends page.
How was June for you?
