Here’s the list of companies that pay us dividends in February. We own few similar stocks in our TFSA portfolio and a few individual ones.
The month of February has provided us $555.10 of passive income in our TFSA accounts alone. This has shown a 14.18% YOY growth compared to same period February 2021.
While we received 4 pay checks from work in the month of February (active income) yet we received 20 paychecks from different companies for the same month in our TFSA alone without spending a single hour at work (passive income). Our ultimate goal is to live off passive income through dividends without harvesting its capital.
Moreover, in our effort to consolidate our stock holdings in our TFSA we decided to part ways with a few of our stocks: NWC, SJ, SIS, RNW, ENGH, KMP.UN, and CAR.UN. While it was difficult to let them go but we are now trying to keep solid and quality stocks in our TFSA. We may sold some of these in our TFSA yet we still keep some of them in our RRSP and non-registered accounts.
We aim to reinvest our dividends on a monthly basis. Here’s the total transactions we have in our TFSA in February. Follow this link to where we invest our 2022 TFSA contribution limit.

Note: For transparency I have started this blog with my commitment to post our TFSA dividend income only. We don’t have any intention to post the total value of our portfolio or personal net worth updates. Thank you for your understanding.
One of my recent blog posts highlighted our mistakes in buying our first home in Canada. With those lessons learned we felt we were equipped with much-needed information this time around buying our recent home using leverage instead of selling our investments to use as a down deposit. In doing so, we improved our total current net worth without dipping into our long term investments.
In November last year, we renewed our home insurance. We made a massive savings by switching our home insurance to Square One up to 30%. If you are looking to renew your home insurance or for a new property, why not check them out and see for yourself if you can also get a huge discount on your home insurance.
Moreover, we also made dramatic changes in our lifestyle and embraced minimalism hence we perceived that living less is more. A few simple money saving tips we have done are reducing our cell phone bills and if you are still paying bank fees consider switching to No fee bank accounts. Similarly, I find dividend investing easy and more fun and you can choose a no fee trading account either as a new or seasoned investor.
Finally, when we are employed, we receive a regular income and a sense of financial security. However, many jobs are not guaranteed and can be also lost and taken away beyond our control as many have experienced during this pandemic due to an abrupt closure of businesses due to the impact of the virus and government mandated lockdowns. Therefore, it is vital to generate multiple sources of income to protect ourselves from these unforeseen events.
