Here come dividends, here come dividends, right down Lanny's investing lane! Yes, I had to throw a Christmas cheer to the biggest dividend month of them all!

What's wild is - this is the first time where it was officially hard to get to this spot. This has taken many years, saving and investing to get to these figures. One could say, the blood, sweat and tears. Damn, I need a glass of wine for this. Further, the 401(k), Health Savings Account (HSA) and all dividends are automatically invested/reinvested and helps take the emotion out of timing and making a decision. Also, to find out why I max out my 401(k) and HSA - please refer to the 3rd part of my tax series, (though I have the breaks on the 401k, as I recently posted due to the 6-month waiting period, only a little over two weeks of waiting to go!) as that describes the magnitude of benefits to increase the amount you can invest due to a reduction in taxes.
