Whew! I’m again everybody. It’s been a busy couple of weeks for me, as I simply acquired again from my first worldwide journey in two years. I booked the flight months in the past utilizing factors and miles, however then had some large last-minute disasters that just about ruined the journey. Happily, we narrowly averted catastrophe. All of it will hopefully make for some good future posts, so keep tuned.
Till then, we nonetheless haven’t checked out my aspect hustle earnings from June 2022 – so on this submit, we’ll just do that. Let’s check out what I used to be in a position to earn final month from the gig economic system.
Facet Hustle Revenue for June 2022
Whole Facet Hustle Revenue for June 2022 = $1,258.94
Issues went pretty nicely in June. I made cash from the standard issues (meals supply, secret procuring, and many others), however I additionally added just a few new revenue sources that I haven’t had shortly. Numerous this was out of necessity. The meals supply recreation has been dreadfully gradual the previous few weeks. There’s sometimes a summer time slowdown in most markets since folks go on trip and college students aren’t on campus.
Over the previous two years, I earned lots from meals supply because the pandemic modified how folks have been dwelling, however issues are normalizing now because the pandemic passes us. Since issues have been gradual, I needed to flip to different aspect hustle sources.
One of many new additions to my aspect hustle revenue sources was Instacart. Earlier than final month, I solely did Instacart a handful of instances, however since issues have been gradual, I turned it on to see if I might earn something from it. I do all my deliveries with a motorcycle and I hate looking for groceries, so I’ve been sticking to small orders, however there’s some promise with incorporating Instacart into my aspect hustle repertoire.
I used to be additionally in a position to earn a little bit bit of cash from Lime – together with incomes a couple of bucks after I was on a weekend journey to Utah. Lime was once a essential aspect hustle supply for me, however issues have modified lots up to now few years. I’ll speak about Lime a bit extra later on this submit.
In the remainder of this submit, we’ll go into extra element concerning the issues I did to earn additional revenue this previous month.
Airbnb/Rental Revenue Revenue: $2,400
The rental continues to stay regular. I discovered some good tenants final 12 months and was lucky that they renewed their lease for one more 12 months. That saves me the trouble of discovering new tenants, cleansing the place, and many others. I did decide to not increase the lease, which is able to most likely harm my money movement since property taxes did go up and upkeep prices are greater on account of inflation.
That being mentioned, I consider the rental property as a long-term play, so so long as I’m getting a constructive money movement and don’t must spend an excessive amount of time managing the place, I’m okay with the trade-off.
Rover Revenue: $116.80
My Rover revenue is a bit deceiving this month as a result of I truly earned greater than what this quantity reveals. I used to be watching a canine for a lot of the month, however the keep resulted in July, so I’ll be together with these earnings in my July aspect hustle report.
The cash I did make from Rover this previous month was all from cat drop-in visits. That is when folks pay me to cease by their home and feed their cats. Every go to is half-hour lengthy and I spend most of my time simply sitting of their home watching movies on my telephone.
I by no means had all these visits earlier than, however since I moved final 12 months, I’ve been getting a ton of those requests every month. As long as it’s for somebody close by (i.e. inside a couple of minutes of my home), then I’ll do it. In any other case, the journey time doesn’t make it worthwhile for me.
DoorDash/Uber Eats/Grubhub Revenue: $459.69
DoorDash, Uber Eats, and Grubhub have been slower for me recently. For the previous few years, demand has been very excessive as a result of pandemic, however with issues beginning to get again to regular, the supply recreation additionally appears to be slowing down (a minimum of within the neighborhoods that I work in).
Right here’s a breakdown of my earnings with every supply app final month:
As normal, I did all of my deliveries utilizing an electrical bike or electrical scooter.

Shipt/Instacart Revenue: $122.05
Since meals supply has been fairly gradual, I’ve needed to flip to different sources of revenue – on this case, grocery supply apps. I used to do just a few Shipt deliveries again within the day, however I haven’t achieved any Shipt shortly since I might by no means work out find out how to make it worthwhile.
Instacart was one thing I did even much less because you needed to schedule your self upfront. Nonetheless, I took a have a look at the Instacart app and noticed they’ve modified it to an on-demand mannequin, much like the meals supply apps. Orders now seem on the display and in order for you them, you'll be able to settle for the orders. It really works nicely for me given the way in which I exploit these gig economic system apps.
I restrict myself to small orders since I’m doing deliveries on a motorcycle – though if I exploit a trailer, I might simply do all of the grocery procuring I wanted to. I might do larger orders, however I’m horrible at procuring. I’ve discovered if I keep on with small orders, I can get them achieved shortly.
Hen/Lime Revenue: $24.50
Lime was fascinating final month, as I used to be in a position to do just a few “transfer” duties and earn a couple of bucks. A “transfer” activity on Lime is the place you discover a Lime scooter and transfer it to a extra fascinating space. Lime sometimes pays $2 to $5 for this activity. I did just a few in Minneapolis and in addition did a small $2 transfer activity whereas I used to be in Utah on a weekend journey.
Sadly, I’m not seeing any extra duties in my Lime app, so I’m undecided if one thing is improper with my app or if Lime has modified how they use impartial contractors. This implies I may not be doing a number of Lime charging for some time.

WeGoLook introduced in a strong $14. This was an exterior picture gig that I used to be in a position to full on my manner house from daycare.

Each apps aren’t going to be big moneymakers, however they’re each good apps that I like to recommend testing.

Google Opinion Rewards/Surveys On The Go/1Q Revenue/Fb Viewpoints: $8.70
Right here’s what I earned with every of the brief survey apps in June :$4.45 + $0 + $4.25 + $0 =
As normal, Google Opinion Rewards and 1Q have been strong. Surveys On The Go might be effective too, however the app is gradual and buggy, so I don’t open it as usually as I used to.
Secret Purchasing Revenue: $145 (plus numerous free meals)
I make lots from secret procuring lately utilizing the Marketforce app. Many of the retailers I do pay $9 minimal, and generally go as excessive as $25. Given how lengthy they take me to finish, I discover them value my time, particularly since I’m additionally getting a meal out of it as nicely. I’ve achieved so a lot of them now that they’re second nature at this level.
I like to recommend most individuals check out secret procuring, particularly because it’s a great way to get some free meals and decrease your meals finances. You’ll wish to try the under posts to know the way it works:

I don’t write on Medium anymore, so that is technically passive revenue.

If I have been beginning out as a brand new blogger in the present day, I’d most likely write on Medium, with the purpose of churning out as a lot content material as potential.
