My Frugal Miser - December Income: $66,792

December income, less a one-time inflow, was mixed.  The Airbnb did amazing - nearly the entire month was booked.  We worked a meeting in New York and I did as many deliveries with Amazon as I could.  We also traveled to Birmingham for several days to work on a vacant rental property.  It's still vacant.  It's hard to rent a suburban home there during the winter.

Just before Christmas I received the inheritance from my paternal grandfather's estate.  My grandfather passed away 5 years ago, and my brother and I had no idea what we were inheriting.  We split our father's share.  It's not life-changing, but I'm grateful for it.

  1. It is great that the Airbnb is making good income. When I saw the amount of income in the post title I was wondering how you made that much money in the month. Do you have any specific plans for spending or investing the inheritance?

    1. I transferred most of it to my brokerage account and also maxed out my Roth IRA contribution for 2020. The balance I used to pay off the windows and siding I installed at the Airbnb.

  2. I found so many interesting stuff in your blog especially its discussion. From the tons of comments on your articles, I guess I am not the only one having all the enjoyment here! keep up the good work.
