My Google Analytics have slowly been climbing over time and I'm wondering how many unique visitors I need to make it worth my time to look into monetizing that traffic with advertising on the site? Thanks.

In my experience, as soon as you hit 100 visitors/day, you can make enough from basic Google Adsense to cover your costs (assuming you are on cheaper hosting when you have fewer visitors).
In terms of time, Adsense takes only a few minutes of actual implementation (not counting the few days waiting to be approved). Even solutions such as BuySellAds, intended for high-trafficked sites, don't take too long to set up.
So I would suggest setting up Google Adsense, try a few ad positions and see how you do.
