My Frugal Miser - October Income: $8,724

My income in October was solid.  I collected rent from every property, including extra rent from my trouble tenant at Townhouse #3 and an extra two weeks rent at Townhouse #1, which was recently rented.  The new tenant receives a 100% Section 8 voucher.  Some landlords don't like the program, but I like the certainty of the monthly rent check and the increased likelihood the tenant will stay put for the long haul.

I did a fair amount of mystery shopping, but my out of pocket expenses were high and won't be reimbursed until November, making my October figure artificially low.

October Income $8,724

$59 Mystery Shopping
$8,594 Rental Income
$71 Other Sources

  • 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.
