February 2017 has been a very busy month for me. I did lots of mystery shopping at the start of the month, went away for a week during half term and after signing up to a temporary recruitment agency at end of January which I’ve done a lot of work for this month which has been fantastic for my side hustle income, I’ll explain this a bit more further on.
Why I publish Income Reports?
I’m going to be publishing a monthly income report to share with you the income from my blog and side hustles because not only will it encourage me to regularly take note of how much I’m actually earning, it will keep me motivated in pushing these side hustles to boost my income even more and I will be showing what sort of realistic figures you can achieve.
Side Hustle Income
Mystery Shopping companies usually have 1 payday’s per month meaning assignments worked after the cut off period will be paid in the following month.
Here I am combining Cashback Apps such as Checkout Smart and TopCashBack with Cashback Schemes such as cashback rewards from banks. Most of the time these companies let you choose when to cash-out so I’m happy for it to stay there until I’ve build up a decent amount. Some also have a threshold that you need to reach before it will allow you to cash out.
I haven’t done any surveys this month as I’ve been busy with my other side hustles.
As I said at the start of this post I signed up to a temporary recruitment agency at the end of January after reading about them being good for mystery shopping. I have done 1 mystery shop with them which I have included in the mystery shopping sections income above. I’ve also carried out 4 hours of field merchandising for them and have 5 hours per week booked for March. I am also lucky enough to live relatively close to their office and they were recruiting a temporary fulfilment manager and… I got the job! It’s brilliant! I’m working 12 hours a week from home maintaining communications and timesheets. So this has had a massive impact on my side hustle income. I’m going to call it a side hustle as it’s not my main job.
This month my blog has taken a bit of a backseat as I’ve been busy boosting my income with other side hustles.
Total side hustle income for February £350.64
