It has been a while since I have talked about my monthly side hustle earnings. I skipped the months of February and March, so in this post, I will combine my earnings for both months. Now my side hustle amounts have dropped tremendously because I needed some self-care and I had other projects I have been working on. I have also stopped doing UberEats as one of my side hustles and you can find out why at 3 Top Reasons Why I Quit UberEats.
Side Hustle #1 – Poshmark
Poshmark has been a great way for me to earn some money just buy sourcing retailers for great items or even purging my own closet. The only thing about Poshmark is that you must keep your closet active and for the past few months, I haven’t been tending to this part of the job as much as I would like to. I still was able to have a few sales during the months of February and March, but it is not as much as I have had in the past when I kept it active.
For the months of February and March, I sold a total of 12 itemson Poshmark. The picture above is a screenshot of my sales, total shipping discounts offered, and net totals. The grand sales total for both months is $216.00, The total shipping discounts I offered to the buyers were $10.80. The total net amount after the shipping discount and Poshmark’s fees was $155.50. That still isn’t bad for barely keeping my closet active. All these items were sourced right from my own closet, so I didn’t have any cost for the goods.
Just think about all the items in your closet you haven’t worn in a while. You could get started today and list those items and make some extra cash. Sure, things may not sell right away but the more you share your items, the more exposer your closet gets.

Side Hustle #2 – Facebook Marketplace
As a reseller, you don’t just limit yourself to selling items on one platform. In the month of March, I started to Marie Kondo my life and have found so many things in my house that has not been used in a while. So, I’ve decided to give Facebook Marketplace a shot. I listed about three items and one of theitems listed sold in about a week.
The item sold pictured above was a brand new in box Ikea collage frame that you can hang it on the wall. I picked this item up a while ago from the AS-IS section of the store which are usually customer returns or discontinued items. I am sure I paid no more than $3 for it and it was still in brand new condition. It has been sitting in the corner for almost a year, so it was one of the items I decided to sell. I was contacted within a week, made plans for the buyer, and she came through and paid $10 in cash for it. Not a bad return on my $3 investment huh?
Side Hustle #3 – Mercari
Mercari is yet another platform where you can list items to sell. It’s not just geared towards fashion and accessories like Poshmark. You can sell pretty much anything on Mercari. So, I listed a pile of DVD’s, a few clothing items and some home décor just to get a feel for the platform. The fist item I sold was a DVD movie that has been sitting in an entertainment center for years. The total price I sold it for was $10 but after the fee Mercari charges, my net earnings from this item was $7. Not bad for an item collecting dust on a shelf. If you have a few items you want to sell, give Mercari a try. As a bonus for signing up, they will give you a $10 credit towards your first purchase.
Net Earnings Grand Totals
Side Hustle #1 – Poshmark $155.50
Side Hustle #2 – Facebook Marketplace $10.00
Side Hustle #3 – Mercari $7.00
Grand Total $172.50
Not bad for just selling items I already have around the house. I am sure if I worked all my reselling businesses a little more than I have, the total amount would have been greater than this. However, I am thankful for any additional amount I receive because not only does this supplement my income, but it all goes to debt, so I can become debt free and live life on my own terms.
