I love Brim Financial and used it recently in South America when for daily purchases to avoid paying foreign exchange fees. I also get 1% cashback for spending and access to free Global WiFi.

I ended 2022, with a $371,082.79 balance so will see what happens in 2023.

Monthly Income Report Table

I received a total of $388.55 from dividends while $65.00 came from my tiny Crypto portfolio. My savings account generated $110.70 in interests.

The total $499.25 in passive income covers our 2 weeks grocery shopping. Isn’t that awesome? I like to think of passive income as a supplementary income which makes some expenses feel less painful (Aka free).

The dividend earning in May 2023 is a significant reduction in comparison with May2022 earnings which is amazing to say the least because we decided to cash out my wife’s $96,400 TFSA (we didn’t contribute in 2023) and pay down mortgage payment in our renewal which happened to be May 2023 at 4.99%.

Below is the list of what companies paid me since July 2022 including May 2023.

I report my purchases whenever happens on my Twitter account. I am not really keeping a detailed track of these purchases as I love dollar-cost averaging while taking advantage of Wealthsimple’s no-fee trading.

Hustle, Dividends, and Passive Income Update Summary
