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.
At the end of October, we were just $700 shy of our goal of hitting 10k in side hustle income in 2021. I can now officially share with you that we crossed that goal in November just in time for Christmas.
Year to Date – Month by Month Comparison
November 2021 – Side Income Breakdown
Total Side Hustle Income – November 2021 = $830.27
Total Side Income 2021 (to date) = $10,162.52
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 = $666.45 (approximately 20 hours work)
Hubby had a pretty average month of gardening. He prioritized getting our Airbnb renovations completed, and we made some great progress. It should be complete by December which will mean we can list it in January (I’m super excited to have another income stream coming in). If you want to find out more on doing Gardening as a side hustle I cover it in this blog post here.
Etsy = $10.27
It was a quiet month on Etsy because it seems I forgot to renew my listings and so I haven’t had my items available for most of the month. Apologies to anyone impacted by this. If something is out of stock feel free to message me. 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 to share what I’ve learnt from this side hustle. I’m currently working on 3 new templates (including my AirBnB host guide), which I’m hoping to have ready for the store in December 2021 (so stay tuned).

Affiliate Income = $200.00
I like to be 100% honest and transparent so feel free to read more about this income stream here on why we are using affiliate marketing, what affiliate marketing is, and what we are using the income for.
