My last two articles have been reviewing my past performance, checking in on my goals through the end of September and reviewing my September dividend income. Both of the articles were showing that my portfolio and dividend income are trending in the right direction. With three months to spare, I’m looking to keep that momentum going. So I took some time tonight to prepare my October stock watch list and see if I can pinpoint a few stocks to keep a close eye on over the next several weeks.
Since our wedding, my wife and I have been talking about how excited we are for things to settle down. She is also in grad school, which is occupying a lot of her time, but she is in the homestretch and final semester. Why do I bring this up? Because there are a lot of great saving habits or routine that take time. When you are working full-time, planning a wedding, and in grad school like she is, time is at a premium. However, despite the busy schedule, the two of us have committed to trying to making saving routine in one aspect…..grocery shopping. In this article, I will walk you through why we want to establish a routine for saving on groceries and how we have been practicing this routine over the last several weeks.
