I recently had a fun comment the other day. It just so happened to be on one of my most recent posts that came out on September 7th for my dividend stock purchases in August. A discussion between Dividend Gremlin and I struck a new fun game to play in my mind, relating to living costs and reaching financial freedom.
Another month is in the books and 2019 continues to fly by at a record pace. Baseball season is winding down and football season is starting up again. Plus, we are approaching fall, which is my wife’s favorite season. It’ll be even more special now that we can celebrate it with our daughter for the first time. August was another crazy month for the market. There were wild swings, buying opportunities, and naturally, the market climbed towards the end. But during that time, dividend income provided us a consistent dividend income stream. Lanny kicked off the party on this website by posting insane results (Read about his $800+ dividend income month). So now it is my turn. Let’s dive into my August Dividend Income summary.
Saving money. It’s a necessity to get ahead, if you feel that your income engine is tapped at the moment. Further, time. Time is precious and it may be foolish to spend countless hours to save a dollar here or there.

On your journey to financial freedom or financial independence, you have to stay hungry out there. August brought many stock opportunities and I was going to feed that hunger by making dividend stock investments, in order to take steps closer to being financial independent. In August, I was able and lucky enough to make 4 dividend stock purchases and my investments only covered two different companies! The investment purchases were for one company already in my portfolio and one new addition to the dividend family! Time to check out my August activity!
The year is flying by. For a good portion of the year, we have experienced some wild, and unpredictable swings, in the marketplace. I’m trying to be better about having a watch list handy to capitalize on sudden drops in the market. There are some names out there that caught my eye as I ran a stock screener during Labor Day weekend. So I put my thoughts down on paper. Please see my September Dividend Stock Watch List and let me know what you think! Hopefully there will be some opportunities to add to my portfolio.
We are one month closer to financial freedom. I cannot remember the last time that I desired, so much, to be financially free. August was a very busy month and a fantastic month for dividends. So lucky on the activity, growth and increases that occurred, but I know it was the hard work, the power of saving and staying consistent with purchases that is allowing me to be here. Time to review August’s dividend income summary!
We are closing in on fall. Football season is right around the corner, along with postseason baseball. The Browns are the darlings of the NFL so far. So let’s just say football is the talk of the town these days. But let’s not forget how much dividend increases are discussed as well. Maybe not by the city, but definitely by Lanny and I. Heck, we are on the lookout 24/7 trying to find new dividend growth investments to add to our portfolios. For those of you that are new to our website. Each month, we predict the companies that are expected to announce a dividend increase in the coming month. Let’s review the expected dividend increases in September!
