December month is a time for family gathering, we get free from job, earlier around 20 of december and have free till around 10 of January. Usually when I was single at this time of the year I was travelling around Asia to get away from the cold. I don’t like the cold weather, it’s nice for a short period sometimes but when it’s dark and cold for too long you get tired. Sweden where I live it’s quite warm weather for being wintertime usually it’s much colder. In Norway they have record warm weather some people are bathing in the sea! I remember I read that there are days they have 19 degrees celsius. This month we spend a lot on food. Food is something I don’t mind spending money on.We had a lot of families coming over for dinner, and some friends. If I see something on discount and its good I will buy it and then try to make some dinner out of it. So food expenses were doubled this month. Another big expense was a cellphone.
My other half needed a new cell phone, we thought about Samsung or Iphone. After a long discussion se will try the newest Samsung. She had an Iphone before, and was really into buying a new Iphone. I can see how Apple ties people to the company. They give them Iclouds to store pictures and it gets really hard to switch company. Warren Buffet bought the Apple at around 180 USD per stock.. now its standing at 300 USD and some analyst houses are screaming for a price at 500 USD! When I think about it, its sound logic, the company is good, and makes big money, phone is something one really needs. Scary thing is that the company is valued more than some European Countries together.
I still have my debt left. 45000 kronor in debt and still to get rid of. This debt is making my savings hard for 2020 because I want to remove my debt first. I failed to do so in 2019. I tell you having debt is not fun. We have are car on debt, and I have a loan of 45000. Maybe it’s not much but it’s somehow irritating for me. Well this is it for now. If I get time I will try to writte you about my 3 trips I made under 2019. Right now Iam still little lazy after Christmas.
Well cya later alligator
Here you can se my goals when it comes to my mortgage ( click here for mortage goals )
I got some dividends this month. Around 638 SEK. Thats not a bad batch of money. My strongest dividend month is always going to be April because the Swedish companies pay mostly around this month. But though Iam also invested in foreing stocks Iam getting dividends more smoothly and even on all months of the year.
Every stock I buy I update the same day my sectors so you can have it freshly updated.
