October 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 November, a brand new month.  I love this time of the year.  The weather starts getting much cooler.  Thanksgiving and Christmas always brings our friends and family together.  Paid time off for the holidays is much appreciated too.

Did everyone have a good October and Halloween?  We stayed in this Halloween since our son has been sick and not feeling well.  Also the costume we got for our son ended up being too big.  October has been a big month for our son since he’s finally getting good at walking and is now trying to talk more.  Our son has also been sleeping very well lately and my wife and I have been able to get a lot more restful sleep.  It’s great. 

Here’s our monthly summary of side income that we have generated in the previous month of October.
Award Travel
On 10.17, I transferred 36,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points into my Southwest Rapid Rewards program to book 2 free round trip flights to Portland for Christmas.  This saved us $597.92 in flight costs.
