Dividend Income Update - May 2018

May is starting to shape up as a solid month for my dividend income. It is still far away from June, but it is getting up there. Even after four years of dividend growth investing, my YOY (year over year) increases are still very good. I know they will slow down eventually, but my own investing and dividend increases have kept the number high. I'm so glad I found this strategy of minimizing spending and investing in dividend growth stocks. It has truly been amazing to see the results. 


Without further ado, here are my results for May 2018:


ANHEUSER BUSCH INBEV BUD $15.06
WILLIAMS SONOMA WSM $9.46
STARBUCKS CORP SBUX $5.40
APPLE INC AAPL $8.76
PROCTER & GAMBLE PG $11.48
OMEGA HLTHCARE INVTS REIT OHI $21.12
MAIN STREET CAPITAL MAIN $4.94
KINDER MORGAN INC KMI $7.20
ABBVIE INC ABBV $35.52
ENTERPRISE PRODUCTS LP EPD $15.39
CVS HEALTH CORP CVS $6.50
VERIZON COMMUNICATN VZ $57.82
GENERAL MILLS INC GIS $7.84
A T & T INC T $43.00

This month I received $249.48 in dividend income!

This is up from $186.06 for May, 2017.

This represents a 34.1% increase YOY!

It is amazing to see these kind of results after only four years of investing. This is a tangible amount that could be used to pay for my food bill for the month and more! Now, I'm not using the money to pay for bills yet and instead I use it to buy shares of other dividend growth stocks, but you can see how it is a solid  number. Can you imagine the amount of money I'd be getting if it was all in my checking or savings account? Maybe a few bucks a month? 

June should be an incredible month for me and I'm looking forward to sharing those results with you all as well. 

Let me know what you guys think! How did you guys do in May?
