Whew! I’m again everybody. It’s been a busy couple of weeks for me, as I simply obtained 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 prevented 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 put up, we’ll do exactly that. Let’s check out what I used to be in a position to earn final month from the gig financial system.
Aspect Hustle Revenue for June 2022
Whole Aspect Hustle Revenue for June 2022 = $1,258.94
Issues went pretty nicely in June. I made cash from the same old issues (meals supply, secret buying, and many others), however I additionally added just a few new earnings sources that I haven’t had shortly. A variety of 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 quite a bit from meals supply because the pandemic modified how folks had been residing, however issues are normalizing now because the pandemic passes us. Since issues had been gradual, I needed to flip to different aspect hustle sources.
One of many new additions to my aspect hustle earnings sources was Instacart. Earlier than final month, I solely did Instacart a handful of occasions, however since issues had been gradual, I turned it on to see if I may earn something from it. I do all my deliveries with a motorbike 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 a major aspect hustle supply for me, however issues have modified quite a bit previously few years. I’ll speak about Lime a bit extra later on this put up.
In the remainder of this put up, we’ll go into extra element concerning the issues I did to earn further earnings 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 effort of discovering new tenants, cleansing the place, and many others. I did decide to not increase the lease, which is able to most likely damage my money circulation since property taxes did go up and upkeep prices are increased as a consequence of inflation.
That being stated, I consider the rental property as a long-term play, so so long as I’m getting a constructive money circulation 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 earnings is a bit deceiving this month as a result of I really earned greater than what this quantity exhibits. I used to be watching a canine for a lot of the month, however the keep led to 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 these kinds of 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 because of the pandemic, however with issues beginning to get again to regular, the supply recreation additionally appears to be slowing down (at the least within the neighborhoods that I work in).
Right here’s a breakdown of my earnings with every supply app final month:
As typical, I did all of my deliveries utilizing an electrical bike or electrical scooter. I’ve been doing numerous my deliveries utilizing my Fucare H3, which is a lower-end scooter that works fairly nicely for doing deliveries for an hour or so (you possibly can learn extra concerning the Fucare H3 right here).
Shipt/Instacart Revenue: $122.05
Since meals supply has been fairly gradual, I’ve needed to flip to different sources of earnings – on this case, grocery supply apps. I used to do just a few Shipt deliveries again within the day, however I haven’t accomplished any Shipt shortly since I may by no means determine make it worthwhile.
Instacart was one thing I did even much less because you needed to schedule your self upfront. Nonetheless, I took a take a look at the Instacart app and noticed they’ve modified it to an on-demand mannequin, just like the meals supply apps. Orders now seem on the display and if you’d like them, you possibly can settle for the orders. It really works nicely for me given the way in which I take advantage of these gig financial system apps.
I restrict myself to small orders since I’m doing deliveries on a motorbike – though if I take advantage of a trailer, I may simply do all of the grocery buying I wanted to. I may do larger orders, however I’m horrible at buying. I’ve discovered if I keep on with small orders, I can get them accomplished shortly.
Chicken/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” process 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 process. I did just a few in Minneapolis and likewise did a small $2 transfer process 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 unsure if one thing is unsuitable with my app or if Lime has modified how they use unbiased contractors. This implies I won’t be doing numerous Lime charging for some time.

Trash/Flipping Revenue: $45
Final month, my spouse discovered an ideal bench that somebody in our neighborhood had placed on the curb.
I listed it on Fb Market for $40 and located a purchaser quickly after. Its trash finds like these that you simply wish to hold an eye fixed out for. This factor was not troublesome to hold residence and bought shortly. In a method, it’s like we discovered $40 on the road.
Along with this sale, I additionally bought an Ogio backpack that somebody had placed on the curb. I put it on eBay for $5 and located a purchaser for it pretty shortly as nicely. It’s not some huge cash, however it wasn’t troublesome to record this merchandise and ship it out.
WeGoLook Revenue: $14
WeGoLook introduced in a strong $14. This was an exterior picture gig that I used to be in a position to full on my method residence from daycare. It solely took a couple of minutes to finish and didn’t take me a lot out of my method. That’s one of many large benefits of utilizing an ebike to get round. You may make fast stops like this with out a lot trouble.
ProductTube Revenue: $45
ProductTube was strong for June, bringing in $45 for not a lot work. I often do these gigs within the morning after I drop my son off at daycare, sometimes stopping on the Goal subsequent to my son’s daycare to movie a brief video and reply the questions within the app.
IVueIt/ProxyPics Revenue: $93
IVueIt and ProxyPics each did nicely final month. I made $63 from IVueIt and $30 from ProxyPics. I hold doing the identical IVueIt gigs every month, all of that are straightforward as a result of I can often full them on my bike journey residence from daycare.
ProxyPics can be good, with related gigs that I can often full on my method residence or after I’m on the way in which someplace.
Each apps aren’t going to be enormous moneymakers, however they’re each good apps that I like to recommend testing.
To be taught extra about IVueIt or ProxyPics and the way they work, try the posts I wrote about them:
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 typical, Google Opinion Rewards and 1Q had been strong. Surveys On The Go might be high quality too, however the app is gradual and buggy, so I don’t open it as usually as I used to.
Secret Buying Revenue: $145 (plus a lot of free meals)
I make quite a bit from secret buying today utilizing the Marketforce app. Many of the outlets I do pay $9 minimal, and typically go as excessive as $25. Given how lengthy they take me to finish, I discover them price my time, particularly since I’m additionally getting a meal out of it as nicely. I’ve accomplished so a lot of them now that they’re second nature at this level.
I like to recommend most individuals check out secret buying, particularly because it’s a great way to get some free meals and decrease your meals funds. You’ll wish to try the beneath posts to know the way it works:

Medium Revenue: $0.25
I don’t write on Medium anymore, so that is technically passive earnings. Clearly, just a few cents of passive earnings isn’t an enormous deal, however it does present that passive earnings is feasible! If I had been beginning out as a brand new blogger right this moment, I’d most likely write on Medium, with the objective of churning out as a lot content material as potential. Since I’ve this weblog, the equation is a bit totally different, as placing my efforts between my very own weblog and one other web site isn’t price it to me.
Market Analysis Revenue: $50
Each from time to time, I get a market analysis gig that pays me to do an interview and reply questions for an app. On this case, I’ve been utilizing the app Pickle to handle my residence upkeep duties and obtained an e-mail asking if I’d be desirous about doing a 30-45 minute interview for the builders in trade for a $50 Amazon Reward Card.
