November was a decent month considering I was unemployed. My severance benefits ended November 10th. Since I wasn't actually working, I did a lot of mystery shopping.
$1,458 Severance Pay
$1,240 Mystery Shopping*
$414 Change in Value of Retirement Accounts (Roth IRA and Rollover IRA)
$959 Rental Income*
$4,071 Total Income for November
*note that the mystery shopping income will always vary from the weekly amounts I post. Here I report actual payments received (cash basis accounting) whereas weekly I report the amount I earned. Rental income was lower because of expenses associated with preparing Rental Property #1 for occupancy.
I started my new job December 1st. I am taking a large salary cut but will try to supplement it with as much mystery shopping as possible. I should also see a bump in rental income now that Rental Property #1 is rented.
