My Frugal Miser - January Income: $9,580

January is the start of meeting season.  Last month I worked a 5 day show in Orlando, a 4 day job there, and two single day gigs.  These were all decent paying jobs.  I also drove for Uber and Lyft on New Year's Eve and one extra day the first week of January.

January is also the beginning of peak season for our Airbnb.  Last month we had guests 30 of the 31 days.  I intentionally blocked one night when we stayed overnight to work on building a fence and doing some maintenance on the home. 

Next, our long-term rentals.  We still have a vacant unit in Birmingham.  I decided to list that house for sale near the end of the month.  The real estate market is hot right now.  It's better to be selling in this market than buying.

With the extra meeting work along with the week we were away for my birthday, I did fewer delivery routes with Amazon.

  1. Wonderful job right here. I seriously enjoyed what you had to say. Keep going because you undoubtedly bring a new voice to this subject. Not many people would say what youve said and still make it interesting. Properly, at least Im interested. Cant wait to see far more of this from you.

  2. There are several kinds of home mortgage whitby readily available to your house customer, and also in addition to various mortgage items, there are different methods by which the rate of interest on the mortgage is determined and also paid back.
