Goal # 1
Save an average of $1,000 / month, to be added to this portfolio.
This means simply what it says. We want to save an average of $1,000 in cash every month for this portfolio. This $1,000 is over and above any dividends or distributions that the portfolio earns.
So far we are accomplishing this goal. Please see the bar graph below for more details. We have been able to save an average of $1,534.84 / month over the past 19 months. This overshoot will come in handy over the next little while as my wife's maternity leave will present a challenge to continuing to meet this goal.
