One Year Income Statement for The Frug Life (Podcast)

One year later, and the podcast is still going strong. I thought I would share some of my metrics for those who are interested. I always find it so interesting to see the business aspect of some of my favorite podcasts and Youtube channels (sometimes more interesting than the content itself). So here are some of my metrics for the last year of podcasting.
Here is my profit and loss statement for the past year, as well as a screencap from my Stripe account. The Stripe balance roughly should equal the ad revenue plus contributor income in the statement below (the difference is timing, as I didn’t pull the wallet balance exactly one year after the podcast started).

As you can see, the podcast made most of its revenue from the dynamic ads enabled on each episode. I also made some money from someone signing up for Robinhood as well as some money from a subscription. Most of the expenses were related to business cards, a gift card promo, and depreciation of audio equipment.

Best Dollar Tree Foods

One thing before I get started - The Feedback survey is still live, and you have a chance to win an Amazon gift card! It is only a few questions and not many people have participated, so the odds are in your favor.

***Also, there is a related podcast episode, that will be linked here once it goes live, Monday at 6 pm.***

One of the best ways to find the best deals is to shop around. Dollar stores sometimes get a bad rap for having poor quality food. Sometimes that is the case (Some of the food at dollar stores is downright awful or a terrible price per pound), but not always! Here are some of my favorite finds from the Dollar Tree.

Pot stickers-

These aren’t the best pot stickers, but they aren’t the worst either. At $1 for 6 oz who can argue though! I highly recommend these.

Spring rolls-
Also, not the best spring rolls, but certainly worth a dollar! These get a strong recommendation from me.

1 lb for a dollar!

Frozen fruit-
At a typical grocery store, this would cost at least twice as much!

Don’t go out of you way for these next ones, but they are still noteworthy. 

Frozen vegetables-


My Dollar Tree has 8 eggs for a dollar. Safeway has 6 eggs for like $2.50. Dollar Tree is a clear winner! In Utah I could by a dozen eggs for a buck though, so I guess it depends on where you live.

Pizza rolls-

Twenty pizza rolls for a buck. They make for a nice little meal. Not crazy flavorful, but good on occasion.

Treet (like spam, but not as good)-

Also, I just barely found this chicken sausage.

Looks pretty good!

Here are some items I haven’t yet found at my local Dollar Tree but I am looking for:

Ravioli for 1 buck, wow!

Pierogi, also a dollar, wow!
