Another month down, and we’re finally in Spring!
I don’t know about you, but it’s one of my favourite times of year – and with news of the lockdown hopefully allowing us to sit in the garden with friends or family by the end of March, there’s even a little spring in my step.
Things have been pretty busy – as ever – here at FHF HQ. We’re currently trying to find a new place to rent to cut down on our expenses (and put the money we save into our Amazon business), but as luck would have it, there’ve never been fewer houses available.
So, between trying to find a house we like/that saves us enough money, working 9-5, writing and releasing seven blog posts, trying to find some kind of consistency with my Instagram, and binge-watching The Office US for the second time, it’s all been a little hectic.
BUT, despite the busy-ness of the past month, I’ve still been able to make a bit of extra money on the side – which I wanted to share with you today.
But why do I share my side hustle income reports?
I’ve always loved having a read of other people’s income reports, which is why I wanted to start sharing mine – to show how much I’ve been able to make outside of my 9-5 in the last month.
I hope to show that, regardless of how much time you have available to you, you can always make an extra tenner here or there – and this soon adds up!
Before we get into it, you can catch my last three side hustle income reports here:
So, how much did I make in February outside of my 9-5?
Facebook Marketplace – £6
I’ve definitely been neglecting Facebook Marketplace this month, but I was still able to sell a computer mouse and clothes hook which had been lying around the house for a while.
With no seller fees, and having the buyer collect straight from your house (and therefore no need to bother with postage arrangements), it’s a great no-hassle option if you’re having a Spring clean this month.
Prolific – £19.03
This month I wrote a whole blog post on surveys and my favourite survey sites – but Prolific will always come out on top for me.
In February, I was able to make £19.03 from the comfort of my sofa, answering a variety of questions and completing a number of different tasks (one included listening to a meditation track for ten minutes!)
eBay – £46.50
There were a couple of ‘Max. £1 Seller Fees’ promotions on this month which I didn’t necessarily take full advantage of, but was still able to make £46.50 – the most I’ve done in a while!
If you’re looking at selling your old clothes/clutter but aren’t quite sure where to start, head to this post where I share my top tips for securing more eBay sales today.
Affiliate Marketing – £10.50
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – I love affiliate marketing, and a key goal of mine is to increase this as much as possible.
It works by generating commission through recommending products and services that I already use myself – and after years of doing it to friends and family, it feels like a natural fit.
Matched Betting – £248.54
In my opinion, matched betting is one of the quickest ways to make some extra cash – and this month, through a mixture of daily bonuses, reload offers and casino offers, I was able to make an extra £248.54, in approximately twelve hours across the whole month.
If you’ve been toying with the idea of starting yourself, or are keen to find out more, the following posts might be of interest to you:
TopCashback – £2.73
Now, using cashback sites is never going to make you rich – but yknow what they say: take care of the pennies, and the pounds will take care of themselves.
If you’re ever going to purchase something online, always go via either TopCashback or Quidco first. Once on their websites, search for the company you want to buy from. If they’re on the system, click through to their website, and just like that, you’ll have made yourself some cashback!
Cashback deals can vary from a few pence, up to £100+ depending on what you buy, but it really does add up. I’ve made over £200 in cashback since I started in October 2019, and I’m always raving about it to my friends and family.
I personally swear by TopCashback, and you can sign up here (referral link).
Total amount side hustled in February 2021: £333.30
A little while back, I decided not to report on my Amazon figures in my side hustle income report, as I’m currently reinvesting all revenue back into the business.
However, if you’re interested in the world of selling on Amazon, head to this section of my blog, where you’ll be able to find my monthly updates, and various posts to get you started on your journey.
What are my plans for my side hustle income?
We currently invest all of our side hustle income into our Amazon business, to try and speed up our growth as quickly as possible. Cash flow is definitely an issue, which is why everything we make on the side of our 9-5 is put straight into the business.

Here’s to a lucrative month ahead!
