My Frugal Miser - May Income: $11,906

May was my best month ever.  It seemed so obvious to me that HMNY, the company that owns MoviePass, was not going to do well.  I had purchased put options, which are a bet on the shares of stock going down.  Boy, did they.  I closed out my options in May and made a huge profit.  In total, my brokerage account balance ballooned by $29,000.

My regular income was also healthy.  I received rent from all my properties.  I also had decent work income from Amazon, meeting jobs, and even a small amount of rideshare driving.

This was the best month I have had.  Even better is the fact this is a realized gain, as I closed out my HMNY put options.
