Work Requirements figured out

I think I have what I have to do for work figured out. I have to update all three of these blogs daily to keep them focused, or at least every couple days.

Sidetick = $15 a month which is $180 a year. So with $25 being the smallest payment amount I can cash out seven times a year. That doesn’t include the few minutes a week looking at pictures or the views the daily blog postings I make get during the year. That’s not bad for doing the same things I’d do on FB for free each day.

AC – well, the earnings there are not much but I can write a few articles a month for upfront payments. I figure I need to write approximately 20 to 30 a week. That would be an evening thing.

Helium- no idea what I’d have to do. The new payment system not working for me although with promotions I can continue to ensure I have enough ad revenue to pay the phone bill.

Saving Money – I found a loaf of 12 grain bread for $1 yesterday. I love that bread and that’s a lot less than the local grocery store, trust me. I bought shampoo that was 50 cents a bottle yesterday too.

OK I think I have to do some more figuring because I’m not past putting change in a jar to save money and using Amazon gift cards for household items. That’s about it for now.

Earnings for last of December

OK I figured up my earnings for the rest of the month. I have $55.08 plus a little bit more ad revenue coming from Helium’s second payday. That’ll cover both phone bills with $11.48 left after they are paid. My balance at Sidetick is $30.56, I could request the $25 payout which is the lowest and have it the first few weeks of January.

I”m trying to wait until I have $200 to request payout at Sidetick; it’s the largest amount you can request at once. That means I have to earn another $170.44 to get a balance of $200. That’s the money for my tires, or at least most of it by the time I can get them bought. I have to get two oil changes after the first of the year so it’s time to start looking around for specials. I still have to have the antifreeze put in my radiator.

My auto insurance bill came in today due the 3rd. It can be there by the 16th and be fine, they’ll just send a cancellation notice. I know how much my light bill is thanks to budget billing but I don’t know when it’s due thanks to the holiday.

There are only four days left of my vacation. I’ve worked a few of them but mostly I took time off just because I never do.

One more payment coming, I think

Well, Helium’s recent changes are a bit annoying except for the twice a month payday. At the end of the month I’ll have at least the minimum $25 to request it maybe a tad more. That’ll cover one of my phone bills next month. Now to figure out how to cover the other one and everything else.

I guess that the rest of this month is going to be spent working since we have appointments just like it was any other time of year. I also have to figure out just how much work I have to do in order to get by. This is gonna be the most depressing thing I do this year.

The good news is that my kids have some form of Christmas. I guess in a couple years I can introduce them to homemade gifts. OK I’m exhausted so I’ll be going. The worst news is that the grocery budget for the upcoming year is up in the air.
