Following our side hustle series detailing the side hustles we participate in we have decided to track and detail the income we generate from them each month. This is the second post of many and you can find them all here.
Year to Date – Month by Month Comparison
May 2021 – Side Income Breakdown
Total Side Hustle Income – May 2021 = $574.62
Our side hustles for 2021 are broken down into categories.
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 = $504.35
Hubby works between 4-8 hours a week doing gardening. He works full time at the moment so his gardening is completed on a Saturday, which isn’t my favourite as it means less family time. That said I’m thankful for the extra income as it’s helping us reduce how much we dip into our savings for our renovations. Our gardening income was down this month due to one of hubby’s customers going on leave, and another switching from weekly to fortnightly visits. At this stage we are not looking to take on more customers so this amount might be the new norm. If you want to find out more on doing Gardening as a side hustle I cover it in this blog post here.
Airtasker = $0.00
Another month of zero tasks in Airtasker. I did have a good look, and almost put in an offer or two but I’m still struggling with just the day to day full time work week to be honest. It’s really hard to hustle when you’re just exhausted from the daily grind (So don’t give yourself a hard time if this is you as well, and make sure to take time out when you need it). If you want to find out more on doing Airtasker as a side hustle I cover it in this blog post here.
Etsy = $25.27
My goal for May was to create some new products, and I didn’t achieve my goal at all. I’m not going to beat myself up about it, but I will try and set some time for it in June. If you would like 10% off any of my Etsy items click here.
Other (including Market Research) = $45.00
After zero market research in April I managed to pick up one 45 minute task on Askable worth $45 ($1 a minute which isn’t bad). I applied for quite a few so for those who keep getting screened out don’t lose hope (Getting screened out happens to the best of us). You will find links to all of the Market Research companies I’m signed up for here.
