Debt SnowFlake Challenge Week 4

To help keep my on track with my debt elimination progress, I have joined Melissa at Mom's Plans in her Debt Snowflake Challenge.  To the best of my ability, I will update my own debt snowflake progress every Friday.  

Our Progress:   The advertising that I mentioned last week, payment was received for a total of $231.00.  That was a nice surprise, to be sure.   Next month, I am expecting a payout from Adsense, ( that happens about once a year) so that will be a nice snowflake to add to the mix.

The items I listed on Amazon last week, ( Christmas CD's) have not sold, but that is okay.  When you least expect it, a sale will occur and will motive me to list more.  In fact, I  will be searching for more Christmas CD's at the thrift stores next month.   

The items I listed on Craigslist have not produced any interest yet.  Actually these vintage Christmas items would probably do better on Ebay, but I will wait until I get back to my home before I start Ebaying again. 

Total SnowFlakes for January (so far):
 Loose Change:  $47.00
 Virtual Asst. :    $10.00
 Amazon:           $37.00
 Advertising:    $230.00

Debt Update will be at the end of the month.  I still use my credit card for my mom and dad's purchases and they pay reimburse me once a month.  Upside to this:  I am using my Marriott Rewards card, so more points.  Downside to this:  The card is still in my wallet.   It is not quite the end of the  month yet, so no reimbursements have been made. Soon.  Very Soon.

Why not try to optimize adsense a bit more?
