My Acorns Update: $78.94

As I mentioned in a previous post, I recently downloaded the Acorns automatic investing app. You can read more about it elsewhere on this blog.

I have it currently set to $10/month plus the roundups. I am making sporadic one time investments of $10 here and there. Basically anyone can afford this, i.e. so can you!

I started at $0 about four weeks ago, in August, 2017. Now it’s already up to $78.94, and some dividends (albeit small amounts) have already been reinvested. Coolio! I suspect therefore that it will be worth more than $250 by the end of the year.

Why share all this with you? Well, I figured it would be fun to track where this goes publicly with you guys! So let’s keep an eye on it together, shall we? I’m hoping that as you see this dollar value go up every month, it will inspire you too to start investing.

NOTE: I also have other investments in government bonds and notes, a savings account, a whole life insurance policy, a term life insurance policy, among others. Acorns (if you decide to use it) should just be one investment you make among many.

Have fun! Let’s get rich. 🙂
