$2200/month side income update

This post is an update on my side income. In my previous post, $1500 per month from my side income, I talked about my side income and how much they are bringing me per month. In this post, I will share an update on those side incomes after about a year into them.

First and foremost, my rental income. As most of you are aware, the rent in Singapore shot up quite a bit post Covid. Well my rental income went up as a result of that as well. The previous rental rate of $2800 went up to $3400 per month. So after subtracting all the expenses and my wife's share, my rental income went up from $1000 to $1300 a good 30% increase. However, with government ramping up housing supply, I would expect the rental rate to soften this year and next.

Secondly, ecommerce. I have added some more products into my store and it had increased my sales and revenue. I am really glad to have started this and see it grow. Today, I am generating a round $500/month of profit from my ecommerce side gig. It is getting quite challenging to juggle between my other obligation and managing my ecommerce. I will follow up with another post on the pros and cons of going into ecommerce business hopefully soon.

Third, Interest/dividend from stocks/bonds and crypto. With the increase in interest rate, I had been putting more cash into Singapore Savings Bond instead of doing Housing Refund to my OA. I have also added some funds into crypto doing Defi yield farming. Crypto is still pretty risky but I am only putting in a small portion of my portfolio. All in all, this bump up this portion of my income from $220 to $400 per month.

Lastly, Grab Hitch is bringing in more or less the same while blogging had been slow. I haven’t been able to find the time to actively blog due to my other commitments. This is something I need to really work on. Managing my time and try to pen down my thoughts more often. For now, both of them are bringing in around $50/month for me.

In summary, my side income had grown from $1500/month about a year ago to around $2200/month today. I am really glad that I managed to grow some of these side income and they do come in handy in times of high inflation. However, I had made sacrifices as well trying to juggle all these commitments. Well there is a price to pay for building wealth. Hopefully all these sacrifice will be worth it as I reap the fruit of my labor in the future.

  1. Grab Hitch earns so little per month? Is it you only do it randomly? Thanks.

  2. Yes I don't do it regularly. Usually when I go office around 3 times a week.
