    Looks like you need another light. Also, i dont like the reflection in the screen in number 6.

    Yup, another light would greatly improve these. Also, looks like some WB issues on some and the last shot is way out of focus and off-color.

    Believe me, if I could afford anything better I would. Right now my budget is 0. No joke.

    Just get a shop light from Home Depot or something. Actually I couldn't find them on Home Depot's site for some reason. I found this on Amazon.com, it's almost just like one of the lights I used for my light box attempt. Surely you can scrape together $6.99:

    I had the same problem with the blown highlights from too much light coming in on one side with my first attempt. Then I set up 2 lights on my 2nd attempt and you can see the difference. I built basically the same light box as you from strobist.com:
