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.
This month we added a new side hustle income stream which I wrote about here last month. September has been another good month of consistent side income so I’m hopeful of staying on track to hit our 2021 goal of 10k in side hustle income.
Year to Date – Month by Month Comparison
September 2021 – Side Income Breakdown
Total Side Hustle Income – September 2021 = $1,343.96
Total Side Income 2021 (to date) = $8424.30
Please note that the numbers below and above don’t include tax/expenses so these are less spectacular when you take this into consideration (these are pre-tax figures).
Gardening = $1,012.22 (approximately 30 hours work)
September was a consistent month for gardening. After raising our prices last month we still haven’t lost any customers, and my husband is a lot happier with his new rate. 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 September, but I did get my first request from someone without me making an offer on a task. The task they wanted to do was too big for my time available, but it was good to know that the list your services section of Airtasker does work. If you want to find out more on doing Airtasker as a side hustle I cover it in this blog post here.
Etsy = $71.74
I’ve had a few people ask me to do a post on my tips for getting started selling printables and digital products on Etsy. I’m hopeful that I will find some time in October to share what I’ve learnt from this side hustle. I’m still working on my AirBnB host guide, which I’m hoping to have ready for the store in December 2021 (so stay tuned). If you would like 10% off any of my Etsy items click here to view my store.
Affiliate Income = $260.00
As mentioned at the start of this post we now have a new income stream. I like to be 100% honest and transparent so I wrote about this here if you want to read about why we are using affiliate marketing, what affiliate marketing is, and what we are using the income for.
Other (including Market Research) = $0.00
We had a very lean month from our market research tasks. I signed up for a bunch but wasn’t picked (which happens sometimes). Hopefully next month is better. You will find links to all of the Market Research companies I’m signed up for here.
In order to reach 10k in side hustle income for 2021 we need to average $730 a month.
Notes: I track my Income and Expenses via my tracker available on my Etsy Store Link Here .
