This week I earned $166, all of which was from staff writing, virtual assistant work and advertising. That means for the entire month so far, I have earned $3.097.22, which I find mind-boggling! When I had to make the decision to quit my job in June, I knew that if I stayed at the job, after daycare for two girls under 3, I would only be bringing home about $1,000 a month. To see how far I have exceeded that income is amazing, especially because I get to work from home and take care of my kids during the day. (Not to say that it is easy, but I am so glad for this opportunity!)
However, not all of that money gets set aside for February’s bill. I immediately snowflaked the entire pay from one of my virtual assistant jobs. In addition, I had $50 in blog and PayPal expenses, so all told, between snowflaking and blog expenses, I deducted $141 from my earnings this week, leaving me just $25 to put aside for February expenses for a grand total of $1,458.27.
I do have two rather large payments pending, so if those go through by the end of next week, I will close up the month nicely.
