My Frugal Miser - October Income: $10,077

October was another stellar month, even though rental income is down.

I earned a significant amount from making deliveries for Amazon.  I average close to $30/hour (gross, before expenses) and my goal is to work 40 hours per week.  I added Postmates to my sharing economy portfolio.  In October I received payment for my first two jobs.  Postmates pays very little unless the customer gives you a tip.

Rental income is still down, as one property is vacant.  I lowered the asking rent on that property so hopefully this will generate some interest.  I managed to rent the condo already, so it was vacant less than one month.

October Income $10,077

($11) Mystery Shopping and Hospitality Jobs

$0 Realized Gains (Losses) on Investments
$24 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.

  1. Please continue blogging. I have just quit my job as a Night Nurse LPN to be at home more with my family and this gives me ways to earn income from home. Ive recently signed on with Live Ops and Amazon Flex as well as a PRN basis for Nursing in between breaks or alow days.. We're trying to purchase a house so no rental credit cards until we pay off our Olds ones... Any advice?
