Extra income!

To date this year I’ve netted an extra $806.57 aside from my day job.

January
$88.10 (Mystery shops – plus free food, lotto tickets)

February
$87.91 (Plus free food, lotto tickets, beauty products)
$70 focus group
$355 side job

March:
$135.56 (Plus a free $70 cardigan from Max – a much needed wardrobe staple and the best quality cardi I’ve ever owned)
$70 tutoring

A month ago I signed up to findatutor.co.nz and, surprisingly, have had three jobs come up already. I don’t have the time or inclination to tutor, but I do enjoy proofing and editing, so I thought I’d put feelers out and see if there was a demand…students wanting their essays polished, etc. I can mostly do it from home, which is exactly what I’m looking for.

I might even set a “reach” goal of making an additional $4000 by the end of the year!

    I wonder if there is an equivalent of that in the states. That looks like a great side hustle.

    Very cool! I didn’t even know they did mystery shop stuff in NZ. The paper editing thing sounds like a great side gig. Super smart idea. 🙂

    I would love to do mystery shopping! Do you actually have to buy stuff?

    @ Minimalist Sometimes. It all depends on the individual assignments. Some require purchases, some are just inquiries!
