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
Once a month (usually on the 1st), I like to post a
short summary of our personal and financial situation for the previous month. While I don’t often post articles, I am
committed to documenting all of my side hustle income. Here I’ll share some of what’s been going on
with our lives and our side hustles.
to September! Did you have a good August? It’s been quite a busy month for our family.
We continue to get lots of value from our passes to the Children’s Museum at La Habra. Our son has practically memorized the layout of the entire museum. We went to visit the museum twice this month.
We were kind of bummed to find
out that the museum will be closed all of September for renovations, but we are
looking forward to the new upcoming changes.
theme of this past month was exploring different playgrounds. There are two playgrounds within a short walk
of our home and several within a short driving distance. Our kids love going down slides, climbing on
jungle gyms and running around.
Aquarium of the Pacific in Long
Beach recently completed their brand new exhibit, Pacific Visions. This new exhibit includes an art gallery, theatre
show, interactive media displays and more.
Since we can see ourselves coming back more than once per year, we
decided to get annual membership passes for $159. The aquarium was pretty crowded on this day;
we look forward to visiting in the future when it’s less packed.
Yelp.com, we recently discovered the Jumping Fun Kids
indoor playground located in Buena Park.
This indoor facility has tons of toys for every age group, as well as
huge bounce houses and slides. Our kids
had so much fun running around, jumping and playing with all of the toys.
other news, our son just started Pre-Kindergarten. It’s been amazing watching him develop
friendships, build social skills, and increase his vocabulary. He’s no longer a toddler!
