Online Income Statement - October/2015

Clickworker, oh Clickworker!  Why hast thou abandoned me?

Not to be overly dramatic about it, but this was the first month since I started using UHRS thru Clickworker that I failed to reach the minimum payout amount, (only $5.00), for a week.  Ugh.

These are our Clickworker/UHRS earnings for October/2015:

10/01  -  $41.68

10/07  -  $31.50

10/14  -  zippo, goose eggs, nada!  (And YES, I did try to earn money this week!)

10/21  -  $15.87

10/28  -  $28.02

That's a grand total of $117.07, and while not bad, October should have been better.  In the middle of the month UHRS just plain stunk!!

Quite honestly, the Clickworker/UHRS earnings for November will probably be even worse, because all that month I will be participating in NaNoWriMo, and attempting to complete my novel of at least 50,000 words.  (If you want to check it out, you can read it in unedited, rough draft form here: .  Just don't expect to read a literary masterpiece, okay!)  I won't make any money from NaNoWriMo, but it should be a lot more fun than plodding thru endless Clickworker/UHRS tasks for pennies each.

So while extra earnings may be a bit off this month, (I'm still going strong at my day job, thank God!), how is the other side of the financial equation coming, namely spending?  Uh ..... cough, cough, cough.  Did you have to ask?

Our so called "signed agreement" is a complete joke at the moment, as we eat out and spend money with abandon.  The balance on the AMEX credit card is soaring ever higher, and will probably be above $2,000.00 as you read this.  Bad, bad, bad, bad!!

But .... I do have to admit that not all of it is our fault.  We had to buy four new tires for Old Grump's car this month, which set us back $600.00 .  And we had a few unusual medical bills, such as a $50.00 charge at an after hours clinic when Grump twisted his ankle.

I'm not sure what to do about this.  It's so damn hard to consistently scale back spending to just the "bare necessities",  and Sweetie has made it clear she will NOT get a job until Dodong is in school, which may be three or more years away.

If Clickworker/UHRS earnings wither up, (which they may in November), then things may really get tight around here.

Bah, humbug!  And it's not even December yet!

I can't give it an enthusiastic plug this month, but if you'd like to try your hand at earning some money via Clickworker/UHRS, you can read my (old) review of my experiences with it here:“”.  If you do decide to "damn the torpedoes" and sign up, please consider doing so using my affiliate link, .

Until next month, good luck with your online earnings!

P.S.  -  we just got our Sam's Club credit card bill in the mail today.  $630.00!!  Good God!  I think we need to go back to Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University.
