This was a fairly quiet month for our side income. Most of our concentration the last 4-5 weeks has gone toward the Minimalism Challenge (click here for updates 1 and 2). We spent a lot of time sorting through tons of stuff and getting rid of things we no longer needed.
One side effect of this challenge is that we made a little bit of money. Although we gave away the majority of the unneeded items, we did sell a few things. I had a pair of barely worn shoes from college (probably 13 years old, but in great condition) that I sold for $20.
We got another $37.70 for some kids clothes. And Mrs. DTG sold an old hair straightener for $5. The sad part is that she found 4 while going through the bathroom! Out of control.
Additionally, while going through the garage I found a Home Depot bag with a few leftover items from a project I completed earlier in the year. Since I had no need for those supplies, I returned them for $20.37 in store credit.
Our monthly average took a slight dip and we’re now on pace for just under $40K in side income this year.
