I Exceeded My Extra Income Goal for 2009!!

January 2nd, 2010 at 09:49 am

Even though I have been tracking my extra income, I haven't posted an update entry since September. Since 9/6/09 I am happy to report that $1,235.53 has been added to my extra income account!!

$299.68....Refund Checks
$406.34....Saturday Income
$294.91....Mystery Shop Fees/Reimburse
$006.00....Interest (9/09-12/09)
$076.25....Ebay Profits
$001.40....You Data
$115.21....CC Rewards
$000.74....Found Money

The grand total that I've saved in this account for 2009 is $8,114.55!!

I didn't actually think that this goal was within reach since I have only been working on an "as needed" basis on Saturdays. Prior to September, I had been working every Saturday. I will have to check my pay stubs, but I know without a doubt that the vast majority of this extra money was from this source.

Unless I am able to work more Saturdays (either in present position or attain another one), I most likely will not be able to set a goal like this for 2010. I'm just being realistic. However, I do plan to have an extra income fund for 2010. I will definitely track everything like I have in the past. It is fun to see how much passive income I can accumulate each month, I just don't know about setting a goal this time.

    Yipee!! That is great. I thought you would get pretty close even without the job income. It looks like the mystery shop money is a good source. Is this your emergency fund or could you pay some towards your student loan?

    The extra income fund is my EF. In fact I think I may want to add to it even more. I don't know, I will have to figure out what would be best.

    Never hurts to add to the EF! Think about a comfortable level for you...$10K total maybe? Then attack that student loan. Just what I might do...I'm sure you'll know what is best for you. Smile
