October Income – $1521.05

Here is a breakdown of my income for October.

Amazon FBA($15.57)
Bank/Stock Bonus$29.95
Amazon Merch$4.48
Ebay/Other Selling$458.75

October’s income was okay considering my job only lasted for one week of the month. It was still about double my expenses which is good.

My Amazon FBA side hustle had a small loss for the month. I had a big return and mostly sold on other platforms so I didn’t have much income to offset the loss from the return expenses.

Dividend income came in at $18.03. If you sign up using my Robinhood referral link we will both get one share of free stock. Thanks to anyone who signs up using my link. Every little bit helps.

I made $288 from unemployment. I’m trying to make more from self-employment and I’ll be out of the country for most of December so I’ve decided not to file for unemployment again this year. I’m hoping next year I’ll have more stable employment and won’t need to file.

I made $458.75 selling stuff on eBay and elsewhere. I’ve got one item that I’m able to quickly flip that’s making most of my profit. I’m hoping the demand will hold up for a couple more months.

I received $625.10 from one week of work at a new job. Unfortunately, they haven’t had more work for me since then.

I also received $88.68 in cash back. This is the amount that I cashed out from my credit cards, not the amount I earned. Since there isn’t much travel now, my Chase Sapphire card is allowing me to cash out my points to reimburse myself for grocery and restaurant purchases which is why cashback is higher than usual.

Lastly, I received $29.95 from a credit card promo and a stock app promo and $4.48 from Amazon Merch.

How was your month?

  1. I would be interested to learn about how you flip items on eBay. Not asking about the item your selling now but what past items have you been able to do that with.

    • The items I sell on eBay are pretty random. They are just bargains I find at garage sales or on clearance. For example, last month I sold a vintage “Scream” Halloween mask that I bought for a dollar for $20 plus shipping. Items I flip locally are generally retail products that are in high demand and somewhat hard to find. For example, this summer I was flipping Nintendo switches and exercise equipment.
