Here is a breakdown of my income for May.
My income for May was surprisingly up quite a bit compared to the previous month. Considering my expenses were only $1346 for the month, my income to expense ratio was great.
My Amazon FBA side hustle made a profit for the first time in a few months. . Amazon finally allowed non -essential items to be sent in and I sold a few items.
Dividend income was down a bit. This was expected since I sold some of my dividend stocks in April and May is an off month for dividend payments.

I made $228.71 in online income from renewing some ads. I haven’t had any new ads placed in quite a while, but luckily I do still have one business that keeps renewing their ads. I probably won’t make any more income from the blog the rest of the year unless I start promoting some affiliate items.
Job income was down quite a bit since I only worked two weeks out of the month. I’ve been laid off three times since the office was shut down due to the virus. I’m currently laid off and not sure when they will have work for me again.
Unemployment was the major contributor to my income in May. It is pretty crazy that I currently make more from unemployment than I do working as an attorney. I was paid four weeks of unemployment in May since my two weeks of unemployment in April wasn’t paid until May.
Income for this month will be lower since I won’t have a back payment of unemployment to boost the total. Income should still greatly exceed expenses so I can’t complain.
How was your month?
