Here is a breakdown of my income for September.
It was a good month for income. My online income not only totaled more than $1000 for the third month in a row, it also reached a new high. I don’t think I’ll match that high again this month but I should have a good shot at breaking $1000 again. I was pleased that even without the job income I made over $2500. My mix of passive and alternative income is working well for me.
My overall income is going to be down this month. I will not have any job income this month. I am screening for another medical study but even if I do get in it will pay less than the one last month. Stock dividends will also be less because most of my stocks don’t have scheduled dividends in October. The March, June, September, December distribution schedule is the most common among my stocks.
I was also quite pleased with my mystery shopping income. I have cut back on the amount of shops I do the past couple months but since I’m getting better paying shops my income is still about the same. I don’t include reimbursements in my mystery shop income but I don’t subtract expenses from it either.
We will see what this month brings. My income should still be more than my expenses. It would be great if I could consistently get my income above the $2000 level.
