My Frugal Miser - August Income: $8,055

Considering everything else that was going on last month, I earned a satisfactory income in August.  My rental income was about where it should be considering one of my tenants had already paid his August rent and is therefore not included.  I also had to kick out one of my tenants, but fortunately I found a new tenant before the month was out.  Mystery shopping income was quite good, but much of that was earned in prior months:

August Income
$2,394 Mystery Shopping
$5,871 Rental Income
-$210 Other Sources (negative)
$8,055 Total Income for August


  • I don't include transactions in my retirement accounts.  This includes rental income, dividends and capital gains and losses.
  • I cut back mystery shopping in August to focus on my rental properties.  Most of the income I received in August came from work I did in July.
