Another good alternative income month

For May, I met my alternative income goal and then some. I’m actually amazed by the dollar amount, until I realize that I spent all of my free time doing things to make money. It’s great because it is a lot of money. But it sucks because right now it’s just supplementing my income as I don’t get paid enough to cover all the bills. When I look at the total it kinda makes me sick because in a perfect world, it would all be extra money I could throw at debt. I’m *really* hoping to have something happen on the job front this month. I either need to get that promotion at work or find a higher paying job elsewhere so that this alternative income can be all for debt payments. If I could do that, I could have all the credit cards paid off in less than 2 years. That would be awesome.

Total alternative income for May was $1397.97

The breakdown for that is:
Associated Content at $629.19
Amazon marketplace at $30.45
Ebay/ e-junkie at $738.33

And, not included above, I made $22.50 with Review Me that is supposed to have a payout of today, I least I hope so because it is marked for my phone bill. And I got $10 from Pinecone Research for a couple of surveys.

Brett- I've been doing a little bit of everything, but travel seems to pay the most, so that's what I've been sticking with. My average per article is around $, as you can see, I've been a writing fiend!
