How I make extra money: April 2012

sidehustle copy 300x150 How I make extra money: April 2012

Every month, I keep track of how I make extra money. My goal for 2012 is to make $2,500 in side hustle income so we can finally go on a honeymoon and also attend our friend’s wedding in Cancun in October. All side hustle money is saved in a separate account, that will go toward travel expenses.

In January 2012, I made $515.41
In February 2012, I made $891.34
In March 2012, I made $636.26
In April 2012, I made $740.76

How I made extra money:

Blog advertising: $465.04
Staff writing for other blogs: $220
Mystery shopping: $307.79
Work Mileage: $62.02
Surveys: $3

TOTAL: $1057.85
Mystery Shop Fees: -242.09
Blog Fees: -$75
NET TOTAL: $740.76

My total for the year is $2783.77!! I met my goal for the year in four months!

This is absolutely nuts. I honestly am still shocked thinking about how I’ve been able to pull together this side hustle. I am obviously very happy with the outcome, and even if it were to completely stop tomorrow, I’d still be happy with how much I’ve accomplished.

    Just currious but where does your advertising come from? Do they contact you, are you part of a group?

    Noticed you made almost nothing from Adsense, interesting

    Thanks rob

    Nice, that’s quite a lot of side income. I have a part time job that brings in some extra money each month as well.

    This is awesome!!! Congrats! That’s a ton of money :) Were the mystery shop fees because you had to pay upfront? Interested to hear more about em. Also what types of shops did you do this month? I always get too lazy to do mystery shops!
