Extra cash challenge - April results

Each month I total up any money I have made outside of my regular job. In this day and age it's good to have multiple streams of income. Here are April's results:

Advertising: $244.92
Amazon: $26.92
ING/Capital One 360: $14.10
Lending Club: $1.19
Part-time job: $17.33

Total: $304.46

Difference from last month: +$102.08

I'm pretty happy with my results this past month. Who couldn't use an extra $300?  Of course most of this is pre-tax money, so it's probably closer to $200.

After next Friday any "extra" cash will be my only income. I am a temporary worker and they have this weird agreement in their contracts that once a temp worker works three years at the same position, they have to take a mandatory 60 day unpaid leave of absence. Stupid rules. However, they have said I could apply for unemployment, so I will probably do that so I at least get some money coming in during that time. I am looking forward to some time away from the grind though. Hopefully I can motivate myself to try to come up with some ways to make some money while I wait out the 2 months.
