My Frugal Miser - January Income: $9,677

My income was strong in January.  Every property is occupied, and every tenant paid last month.  I didn't earn much from mystery shopping and hospitality work.  In fact, mystery shopping alone was extremely light for some reason.  I was able to supplement shopping with a demo job at Home Depot and three hospitality jobs.

I think I will earn more in February from mystery shopping/hospitality.  We have three hospitality jobs lined up and I have a large gas station auditing route planned.  One of my tenants is moving out this month, so rental income will be lower.

  • 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.
