My Frugal Miser - August Income: $7,320

August was an okay month for income, especially since we were in Europe almost three weeks.

Much of the income was from work I did in July, especially on the mystery shopping side.  I have been successful picking up hours delivering for Amazon.  Rental income was especially low.  One of my management companies made the August rent deposit in September.  The townhouse was vacant, but the good news is that a new tenant just moved in.  I have one other vacancy, and it is one of the higher income properties.  I won't be able to list it for rent until next week after carpet is installed.

  • 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.
