Hey there, March!
It’s the beginning of the month, so that means another check up for Because I’m Cheap. I like to do a once a month progress report detailing stats, income and other miscellaneous improvements. I like numbers, they help measure success 😉 I also like being transparent. So, this post is how I did for the month of February. If you like numbers like I do, you can see last month’s report here.

$75.97 Affiliate Links (Prior month $49.96)
$224.10 in free products to review ($145.99 prior month)

Total = $481.69 (Prior month $210.95) <— Woohoo! That’s almost doubled!

I have a few collaboration opportunities in the works that will begin in March. These will be harder to track as I will be doing exchanges of services, so look for that line (however it looks).
