The great thing about doing side hustles to generate extra income is that you can hustle on your own terms. The more hard work, time, and creative effort you put in, the more extra money you can make. You can hustle as little or as much as you want, whenever you want. It’s your extra money, and you can choose how you want to spend it. Instead of focusing on what ideas don’t apply to you, try focusing on different side hustle ideas that you can implement to work for your situation.
Welcome to July, a fresh new month. June has been a slow side hustles month for us as we’ve both been so busy at home taking care of our newborn. In my downtime, I’ve been doing a lot of reading from my favorite blogs and message forums. I’ve also enjoyed listening to NPR (National Public Radio) as well as various podcasts and TED talks.
Here’s our monthly summary of side income that we have generated in the previous month of June.
On 6.1, I received $25.04 Paypal deposit from Mr. Rebates
On 6.9, I received a $10 statement credit from AMEX Offers (Spend $75 at AT&T Wireless, get $10 back)
On 6.20, I received a $50.88 direct deposit into our checking account from my Citibank Double Cash credit card.
On 6.23, I received a $1.07 statement credit for cash back earned from my AMEX SimplyCash credit card.
On 6.29, I received a $20 Visa gift card from Staples for a gift card promotion (buy $300 in Visa gift cards, get a $20 rebate)

On 6.1, we received a net profit of $430 from our rental property
We earned $106.99 in cash back
We earned $25 worth of Amazon gift certificates from Search and Win sites
We earned $12 in cash from paid surveys
I earned $137.50 from my side job teaching at the local university
We earned $430 from rental income
All of this totals $711.49 from our side hustles for the month of June. This is not too bad, considering that the two of us have just been staying at home most of the whole month. The side hustle income has been covering our baby supply and diaper purchases. We’ve saved a good amount of money by hardly using any gas, and not eating out at any restaurants or spending money on entertainment. Getting paid time off this whole month has also been pretty sweet.
As our baby starts to sleep more hours, I’ll be looking to ramp up on the side hustles this month.
