This is the first time I've taken the time to keep a running tab each month on a paper.
I'm a little disappointed at the grand total, I really thought it would be higher. Definitely gives me something to work on improving this total.
Cash, check or paypal:
Neilson Digital Voice $10
myallfriends .10 (this one sure ended up being a waste of time)
quickrewards $1.07 (this sure went down when the daily 1 cent clicks disappeared)
yahoo contributor network $1.71
clixsense $18.78 (I made $33.73 but used $14.95 of it to upgrade early Nov. 2011)
Squidoo $98.43 (working harder to increase this by quite a bit this year)
mylikes $3.75 (would be much better if I kept up with it)
instant cash sweepstakes $2.26
blog services $42.19
viewpoint forum $13.07
Total of $1,195.38 (notice almost half of this was just from gather?)
swagbucks amazon $30
sidetick amazon $15
superpoints amazon $10
crowdtap amazon $31.97
opinion outpost amazon $7
mypoints Walgreens gift cards $20
Total of $113.97 (this sure seems very low!)
Pay for cleaning my church $560
Gifts Galore and More--selling my crafts, used books etc. I actually show a profit of $199.16, which is the most I've ever made profit in a year. I do have to thank a lot of friends here on gather for ordering from me throughout the year.
I wasn't sure where to put Jerky Direct--I rec'd checks totaling $76.51. This was my commission over the $13.97 a month autoship. I've been fortunate to always have my autoship covered by my downline. I have a question here---if I was filing this on taxes, how would I file it? It does cost $13.97 a month to be a part of Jerky Direct, but that price includes 2 bags of jerky of my choice each month plus my store front website. So, technically, I've made that $13.97 each month as well.
If anyone can explain this a little better, I would appreciate it. There would be other expenses as far as a business like ink used and card stock bought to print business cards.
Anyway....the grand total including the $76.51 from Jerky Direct is $2,145.02.
Most certainly could not live off of that! I think this year I will keep a running total each month when I post my monthly stats. Then I don't have all this work of adding it up at the end of the year.
I decided to go ahead an add up a total from my freebies records. These records also include found money, refund checks, gift cards won, money made at yard sales etc along with products rec'd free. I come up with a total for the year of $1,506.85. Added to the $2,145.02 gives me a grand total of $3,651.87 for the year.
