Our net worth rose 8.77% in August. $588 of that came as third quarter dividends from our Betterment and Vanguard accounts. We’re averaging $224 in monthly dividend earnings this year even though we are not dividend investors.
We keep our investments simple (because we lack financial knowledge). We passively invest in Betterment (80/20 stocks to bond allocation) and in Vanguard (VTSAX and VTHRX).
Our mortgage dropped by 0.84% (shaving our mortgage by 2.25%). We have a 30 year mortgage that started in May. We would’ve gone with a 15 year one if I had known better.
We’ve hit 11.82% of our FI goal.
