My September investment income rose to $83.28 from $82.51 the month before. This isn’t much of a rise but at least my income is going in the right direction. I didn’t add any money to my investments in September so the rise was from investment portfolio increasing in value. I plan to add a little money to my portfolio this month so I should have another rise in my investment income unless my stocks tank.
Disclaimer: This is not my actual investment income. To get this figure I first add up my retirement savings, emergency fund, and any other money I consider permanent savings. What the total of my savings would earn at 6% interest for a month is my monthly investment income.
