Personal Passive Income and Expenses Monthly Report - August 2016

Hi Everyone!

This post might come a bit early but just two days won't make any much difference. I just got my recent salary increment, which is around $200, feel very happy because an increment is an increment, and I have hit my targeted salary, making $4,000 per month!

One target achieved, 4 more to go! 

Secondly, I just received $64 worth of dividends from Singtel, which is a good thing and this raise my passive income in 2016 to $1,405.65! Well, it might be little, but my actual investment journey starts mid of next year (after I purchase my first property).

I am on my way to hit my goal for myself of generating $1,500 worth of passive income before I hit 28 years old. My investment is still float above $3,000 for now, generating around 4.2% dividend yield per year I guess.

Savings and Expenditure - August 2016

Based on the graph below, my expenses break down are as below (pretty much the same as last month) - but the good thing is that all the target are green! I didn't exceed any of the category:

1) Travel: $120 (Planned) VS $120 (Actual) - I bought adult concession so the amount is fixed
2) Food (Weekday): $160 (Planned) VS $122.20 (Actual)
3) Bills: $120 (Planned) VS $65.13 (Actual) 
4) Entertainment: $120 (Planned) VS $119.75 (Actual)
5) Others: $580 (Planned) VS $511.00 (Actual)

Overall: $1,100 (Planned) VS $938.08 (Actual)

150K progress - August 2016

As of now, my savings is around 75%. 25 more percent to go before I hit my target, which boils down to around $37,500 more to go!

Conclusion - August 2016

My expenses is under controlled, but hard to say for the next few months because of my wedding expenses. Well, $37,500 more to goal to hit my target, hope I will achieve that goal at the mid of 2017. I believe my passive income will generate around $160 per month by the end of this year. 

Also, very happy that I achieve one of my goal which is hitting $4,000 monthly income and hope I can reach my target soon enough! Can't wait to buy my first property and start my investment journey full time!

  2. I`m Charlie Bean and I live in Toronto Canada. I needed a loan to buy a house and I searched for a mortgage loan from all banks and I was denied and I loss hope of having my own house until I came across a post just as you reading my post now. I saw a post about a Financial Service Company who gives loan at 2% interest so I applied in STEAKLEY FINANCIAL SERVICES using their email And my loan was granted it was like a dream but was true and now am a owner of a house in Toronto and am paying the mortgage loan with no stress and I also requested if I can be granted a business loan and I was also granted. Now am living a happy life, I will advice you if you have an financial problems and you need money to settle it so you can pay with no stress just contact Steakley Financial Service at their email
