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. If you want to read all the previous linked posts you can find them all here.
June marks the end of the financial year for us Australians which means its tax time. The end of the financial year for us side hustlers means it’s time for to prep our receipts, invoices and other items for our tax agent.
Being the end of the financial year it’s also time to calculate our 6 month average monthly side hustle income.
Average Monthly Income = $688.95
Year to Date – Month by Month Comparison
June 2021 – Side Income Breakdown
Total Side Hustle Income – June 2021 = $385.31
Total Side Income 2021 (to date) = $4,133.71
We break our side hustles into 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 = $323.75
Our gardening income has continued to drop as we prioritised our own renovations on the weekends. Hubby has been lucky to develop good relationships with his customers so they have been really understanding of our need to reduce gardening hours this month. We forecast our gardening income to rise a little in July 2021, however we may not see our previous highs of $600 a month in this category for a while. My husband usually works 4-8 hours per week on his gardening side hustle (less this month). 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
I didn’t complete any tasks on Airtasker in June. June was a huge month in our home due to the competing demands of renovating a house, working full time, and still trying to be a decent human and mother. I still watch for tasks and hope to be back on it shortly. If you want to find out more on doing Airtasker as a side hustle I cover it in this blog post here.
Etsy = $42.56
A nice little month for us here on Etsy, and I’m always forever grateful for any income here as it’s passive income. I’m also working on an AirBnB host guide at the moment, which I’m hoping to have ready for the store in September 2021 (so stay tuned).

In April I applied for lots of market research gigs, however was unlucky and didn’t get picked. I think its important for me to mention that I don’t always get picked, and likely spent an hour in April filling in surveys that didn’t amount to any money. You win some you lose some. You will find links to all of the Market Research companies I’m signed up for here. Next month we forecast our other side income to be over $1500 thanks to my talented husband who managed to get some additional income through his work connections custom making game boards.
