Here is a breakdown of my income for August.
I had a nice increase in income for August. This was mainly due to my online income rebounding nicely. I don’t expect it will continue this month, but if it is even half of August’s total I’ll be happy with it. My other sources of passive and alternative income didn’t add up to too much. The cash back total wasn’t too bad though. I got $35 from Mr. Rebates which was almost all from my referral’s purchases. It is turning out to be a nice bit of passive income. My mystery shopping income should be up in September as well since I did several mystery shops in August that I’ll be paid for this month.
Some people have criticized me for not having a job. My August income is more than I’ve made from most of the jobs I’ve had. I was making this much every month from the middle of last year to March of this year so I didn’t feel a need to get a job. If you’re self-employed and making enough to pay your bills, I don’t think it is fair for people to tell you to get a job.
I will be getting a job of some sort this month. Even with working a full-time job I think I can continue to make about the same amount of money in alternative and passive income. The combination of job income and other income should allow me to pay off my van quickly and replenish my savings. I’ll keep you posted on the job search.
