November side hustles 2016

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 December, a brand new month! Can you believe that 2016 is almost over!?  

Did everyone have a good Thanksgiving?  We both appreciated the paid time off received for Thanksgiving and the day after.  We spent a lot of quality time with family and friends, and ate plenty of food.  It was great not having to deal with any stress of work.  There is so much to be thankful for each day.  We are thankful for our health, our family, and our friendships.

It was nice to experience freedom from work for 4 days in a row (Thursday through Sunday).  We had a chance to sleep in a little bit each morning, go for walks in the park, take naps in the afternoon and really just enjoy life at a slower pace.  These few days off felt like a glimpse into how early retirement could be.  It was so great to spend time playing with our son, instead of him spending hours each day at daycare.
Our boy loves his mega blocks!

We survived Black Friday and Cyber Monday, supposedly the days of greatest possible discount, without spending too much money.  We did buy a new Nest 3rd generation smart thermostat for $175.15 after taxes, a great deal since the retail price is $249.99 before taxes.  Our previous thermostat was probably about 30 years old, and was having a few electrical issues.  Best part of the deal was that we qualified for a $125 rebate for purchasing a smart thermostat! 

$50 (after discounts and rebates) for a new smart thermostat where we can control temperature from anywhere with our iPhones is quite the hot deal!

Here’s our monthly summary of side income that we have generated in the previous month of November.  It was a pretty slow month of side hustle income for us.  We were too focused on family and relaxing to hustle hard.  Also have been spending more time planning out or upcoming trip to Japan and Taiwan early next year.
Here’s our monthly summary of side income that we have generated in the previous month of October.
Paid surveys
On 11.2, I received $3 PayPal deposit from Pinecone Research
On 11.21, I received a $5 PayPal deposit from Pinecone Research

Rental Income
On 11.1, I received a check for $700 from our temporary housemate.  With utility costs going up, it was time to increase the rent by $100.
On 11.6, we received a net profit of $455 from our rental property. This includes a $25 late fee.  Hopefully paying rent late does not happen again. 

Monthly Totals:
I earned $8 from paid surveys
We earned $1,155 from rental income

All of this totals $1,163 from our side hustles for the month of November.  While we are used to bringing in much more side hustle income, this little bit still helps.
