My Frugal Miser - March Income: $7,860


March was a good month.  It seemed like I was always heading to a hospitality job or doing merchandising work.  If that wasn't enough, there were plenty of mystery shopping jobs to keep me occupied.  These are "active income", sources of income where I have to do something to generate it.  On the "passive income" side, rental income was strong considering my highest-value property is vacant and listed for sale.  Every other property generated rental income, including my perpetually trouble tenant, who paid a month's rent near the end of March.

April won't be as strong.  We are spending almost a week in San Juan, Puerto Rico and I am also going to New York for the Biglari Holdings Shareholder's Meeting.  I have one hospitality event and one retail demonstration gig booked, as well as several dozen gas stations.  Even so, income from working will be less than half what it was in March.

March Income $7,860

$1,740 Mystery Shopping
$6,097 Rental Income
$23 Other Sources

Notes:.  
  • 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.
