Following our side hustle series detailing the side hustles we participate in we have decided to track and detail the income we generate each month. This is the first of many and you can find them all here.
Year to Date – Month by Month Comparison
March 2021 – Side Income Breakdown
Total Side Hustle Income – March 2021 = $898.10
Our side hustles for 2021 are broken down into 5 categories currently.
Please note that the numbers below and above don’t include tax so these are less spectacular when you take this into consideration (these are pre-tax figures).
Gardening = $613.60
Hubby continued to run his side hustle this month despite his teaching work ramping up. Next month will be a little less than this month as we took a weekend off to go camping for Easter. If you want to find out more on doing Gardening as a side hustle I cover it in this blog post here.
eBay = $60.00
After 2 years doing eBay selling on the side I’ve decided to call it a day as it just wasn’t a passion for me any more. I initially started on eBay by selling down my own wardrobe and kids toys. March is the last month we will expect to have any income from this side hustle.
Airtasker = $0
It was a slow month here for Airtasker as I’ve been extremely busy with creating more products on my Etsy. I’m hoping to get back on in April, but we’ll see. The good thing with Airtasker is that you get to control what you apply for, and if I don’t like a job I don’t bid for it. If you want to find out more on doing Airtasker as a side hustle I cover it in this blog post here.
Etsy = $89.50
It was my best month here, and every time I get a sale I get extremely excited. Not for the money, but for the fact that someone might be getting value from a product that I created. I use all of my own Etsy products myself so I know the value they bring me, but its another level knowing that other people are using my products. If you would like 10% off any of my Etsy items click here.
Other (including Market Research) = $135.00
This consisted 100% of market research gigs through Askable and Research Connections. You will find links to all of the Market Research companies I’m signed up for here. I’m also in the process of applying for a study worth $460 so fingers crossed I get this one.
Notes: I track my Income and Expenses via my tracker available on my Etsy Store Link Here .

Hi, thanks for the article. It’s great to have a reference point what sort of earnings are possible in the different categories. Just one question: Would you consider adding the approximate amount of hours spent on each side hustle? I think that would help to understand the “attractiveness” of each hustle better. Again, thanks for sharing! The transparency is much appreciated 🙂
