My Frugal Miser - December Income: $9,579

I finished the year with a strong December.  I not only evicted my deadbeat; I also found and placed a new tenant.  This new tenant is a truck driver and his rent is automatically deposited into my checking account by his employer.  He paid a deposit, one month of rent, and began making weekly rent payments a week before his lease started.  I am thrilled to have a tenant who might actually work out, as the townhouse he is renting has been nothing but trouble from a tenant perspective.  All three tenants prior to him have ended up moving out with outstanding rent.

My other income was minimal, which was not a surprise to me.  Most of the month was dreadfully slow and I had several days where I did no mystery shopping.  January will be a little better but not a lot:  I missed out on the posting of a couple projects and in this more competitive area where I live now, someone else picked up all the jobs I would be doing.

  • I don't include transactions in my retirement accounts.  This includes rental income, dividends and capital gains and losses.
  • I include merchandising and hospitality work in the mystery shopping category since the companies that I shop for provide this extra side work.
