How much of your online earning actually help your bill payments

We all got bills to pay, utility, DSL, gasoline, cellphone, insurance etc...... I just wonder, since we are here in mylot, and we might also sign up with other websites to earn extra money, how much of what you earn online can actually help your monthly bill payments? I would say that my average online earning per month only help me half of those bills, or less than half. Maybe I have too much bills that I didn't actually take a careful calculation on all of them. But with minimal earning of mine, I can only take care half of them only. So, I might need to sign up more websites, and focus more of my time on online earning too.

I can only pay my cell phone bill with my online earnings. I haven't really used them for anything so far, just been saving them for the time being, but now that I have to start paying rent again I think they will disappear fairly quickly.

Hi kingparker. I'm happy to say that I am now earning more online than when I was working in a private firm almost 10 months ago. Before I was deeply in debt because my income then was so small, I had to scrimp and yet it was really not enough :( I only started working online last March 2010. Anyway, I'm better off now because I could earn in 1 week what I used to earn in two weeks, or approximately $150-200 per week. My total monthly income - which I earn mostly through my odesk contracts - are more than enough to pay for my internet bills, my credit cards, cellphone load and grocery bills. I'm very lucky I guess because my income has been very stable, thanks to having good employers, and being able to find a lot of online earning options.

My online earnings really helps me with my bills. Of course, more is always better. It does not pay for them all but every penny helps.

The money that I earn online right now is just enough to treat myself to a burger meal at McDonald's. I am not kidding here because I live in the Philippines and there is so little online earning opportunities for international members. I also have a small problem of getting some earning from a site whose only mode of payment is through a UK bank account, so no luck in getting my payment from there. I am still dependent on my real job because I cannot rely on my online earnings.

It's very hard for me to earn from online internet to pay my bill. Especially I only earn several dollars through several months. I am wondering if it has a good way to earn more.

Basically, what I make online is just extra, as I am on a fixed income, where I pay my bills from that. Sometimes I have more to pay than I get so having the fixed income is just ideal. Now, I hae used my online income to help pay bills when I have come up short, as sometimes my fixed income just doesn't come in like it should, or when I need it the most. I really haven't made all that much since I have been working online, but eventually it all adds up over time, and that is the main thing. I wish I made more online, but I am glad I am making anything at all. If I didn't do them, I certainly wouldn't make anything, so I will keep doing what I am doing as long as I do get paid.. Good luck to you and happy mylotting.

Hi there. If i want to I can pay at least my water bills which is not that much really, that is, on the regular schedule even if I don't keep myself busy doing the online thing. But if I keep myself really busy here like spending at least 5 hours daily, I can pay my electric bill or my internet subscription. I'm just lucky that hubby is not forcing me to shell out some amount to settle the bills.

My online earnings don't cover up any of my bills but it covers up leisure and time.

My husband and I make just enough with our "day jobs" to pay all of the normal, monthly bills. I split the money I make online between two accounts. One is my daughter's college fund, and the other is a christmas fund, to buy presents and the extra baking ingredients for the holidays.

My online earnings are mine to do with what I please. My husband says that I spend my extra, spare time online , that I can keep these earnings for myself. Unfortunately I have some credit card bills that I'm trying to pay off (from the holidays) so right now my earnings are going towards those. Typically though I have the money to do whatever I please. It's nice. :-)

You can also earn alot of money with referals.. I think that is the best way to earn money, even better then doing surveys and all those things, if you have alot of referals you can get in the 100-200$ each week also try to enter in sites that do very good contest

You are doing great if you can pay a bill or two! I cannot do that, maybe every four to six months I can pay something with the online earnings. I do need to spend more time in Mylot so I can earn more. This is the highest paying sight I belong to. Good luck with your online venture, I hope you can earn enough to pay your bills!

My Triond earnings every month can take care of my leisure fees; but, I don't have a large budget for that though. Still, the amounts are enough to pay off probably my phone, and internet bill. I hope to get it up to the point where it will be able to pay off all of my bills, and then have some left over to put on food and other things I may feel like spending it on.
