I know some fellow bloggers have side income/hustle listed in there income/expense reports. Just wanted to let everyone know I have yet to receive any income from this blog (not that that was my intent). What are my secondary sources of income?
Well the first would be obvious. Income from investing in dividend paying stocks. That money I currently just put right back in automatically to purchase more stocks. That is income I will not see for some time. I am fine with that as I know it is buying me time I will get back some day as long as I keep investing.
The second is any interest I get from banks for loaning them my cash in savings or checking accounts. So I get paid to use their services like mobile banking and online bill pay. No fees and these services do make my life easier. The only time we buy stamps is around Christmas for cards.
The third stream is from shopping. I am not a mystery shopper but I do use Ebates. They offer deals and cash back by installing an app in your browser. Sometimes I have gotten up to 6% back from shopping on certain sites. Every month they cut me a check and deposit it in my PayPal account.
On top of that things I buy with my credit card give me cash back as well. That gives me another 1%. This and the Ebates almost pay for the taxes. Yippee! All of this income and I just don't know what to do with it all (kidding). It totals just a few bucks a month and I am spending more money on things for the family than getting from these streams.
Have a good day!
