cashing out

I cashed out at Lightspeed survey panel

10.00 to amazon by mail

I cashed out at Opinion Outpost which was surprisingly higher than I thought it would be.

30.00 by check

I get about 4 dollars a month from American Consumer Opinion which is better than nothing. Esp since we are now on a very tight budget.

HOLY MOLY kids are expensive.

That's why I like to do freebies too.

A year long gift

Do you have a niece or nephew that would love to get a book a month? How about a grand child? I know that my children would appreciate a new book all the time. At least Zoe would, Miles only chews on them right now.

When you order a book from Karen you get the book, a very cute lollipop and a specialized letter from you. Here is one of the samples sets you can get for a 12 month old in hardback.

#45 Option 1
Month 1: My Friend Rabbit
Month 2: Snowmen at Night
Month 3: Don't You Feel Well, Sam?
Month 4: On the Night You Were Born
Month 5: If You Give a Mouse a Cookie
Month 6: Counting Crocodiles
Month 7: Corduroy
Month 8: Rumble in the Jungle
Month 9: If You Take a Mouse to the Movies
Month 10: My Big Dog
Month 11: I Like Me
Month 12: Whose Mouse Are You?

My daughter has four Corduroy books. She loves them. She has learned a lot through reading and giving the gift of reading is a wonderful way to help a child grow and develop. My husband and I love reading to our kids. She has the ages separated into different age groups.
Ages 2 to 4
Ages 4 to 6
Ages 6 to 8
Ages 8 to 12

This seems to be a way to give and keep giving all year around. Go visit and sign up for her e-mail list.

Christian Blogging Opp

My best friend has started up a site for reviewing Christian products. Do you have a product that needs to be reviewed. Do you want to review products? Visit Faithapproved to find out more.

Pet Peeve

You know what I'm really getting tired of. I hate logging into everything. You have to log on to facebook, you have to log on the entrecard, you have to log onto every company that sells something. Now, I understand if they have private information you should have to log on, but why do I have to log onto betty crocker to get some coupons. You know, snapbomb is experiencing technical difficulties, but it remembers my information so I don't have to log on every single time. Just needed to vent thanks.

Coupon Winners

I love giveaways. My friend Courtney said not to think of my first giveaway as a failure. 8 people is a good turn out for a site that was only started up a few weeks ago. So YEAH!!!!!!

Thanks to everyone who participated. I also wanted to say that the winners were chosen by the only five that left an e-mail address. I had to have your e-mail address to contact you. I did check in your blogger profiles but I couldn't find it. Therefore the winners are
txsunlover can't find her blog but I have her e-mail so she knows she won

Thanks for making my site boost in viewer counts. I'm learning how to shop at Walgreens for Register rewards and I'm making great deals at Albertsons too. It's my new favorite store.

Pee pee in the potty poo poo in the tub

My daughter loves to take baths and lately we've had an issue of going poo poo in the tub. Now I can see the sign, I ask her, I you going poo poo? She smiles and says no. I know that means yes but for some reason I believe her and let her be. She has only done this twice, but I hate cleaning it up. So, next time I ask I'm going to make sure she knows what she is saying and that I know if she is going or not.

On another point though, we have started potty training, well, very minimally. She knows when she needs to go, so we got her a potty and explained what it is. She says pot pot pot. She can say poo, and poo poo. She has a sign when she wants to be changed. She grabs her diaper and says help. So every now and then we ask her if she wants to sit on her potty. She grabs a book or a toy and along we go. The other night she sat there for a while and I asked her if she went. I didn't think that she went, but she did. Yeah, she went pee pee in the potty. I'm really not sure that she is aware that she did anything special, because it hasn't happened again. I'm also not very big on pushing her to potty train because she is a little self conscious about the whole thing and getting her diaper changed in the first place. We did reward her though with a chocolate chip. Her very first chocolate chip. She immediately did the sign for more. To her disappointment she didn't get another and was told she could have more when she went potty on the potty again. What do you do for potty training. Advice is welcome.

Survey a day!

I know I blog about this a lot on this site and I don't ever share anything important.

Clearvoice Surveys
Consumer Link - does not pay
e-poll - watch tv & movies
Global Opintion Panel
Global Test Market
Greenfield Online Panel
Lightspeed Panel - The best
Survey Spot - lots of samples
Valued Opinions

I know that this doesn't include all of the ones that I use, but next month I'm planning on cashing out at all of the survey sites that I have taken. Now, if you add up everything i have made and what I'm going to cash out at it's probably going to be close to 200 dollars. I did participate in one online market panel and those are worth bigger bucks, that was half of it right there. If you stay tuned I'll give you the exact totals after I cash out next month. I've only been taking surveys for two months by that time. We'll see. If I didn't list it here, I don't like them. That's why I didn't list them.

Thursday Thirteen

Today my Thursday thirteen are ways to make money.

1. Cut Coupons they are cash wherever they are good.
(I saved 57.00 at the grocery store this week)
2. Start Blogging for money.
(use Payperpost and Snapbomb)
3. Use Freebies
4. Take Surveys (but don't count on a lot)
5. Be a mystery Shopper
6. Use your car to advertise
7. Use credit cards to gain points
8. Use credit cards to get 0 percent interest on credit transfers
9. Turn Savings into higher interest in a cd - even if you can do the min do it
10. When you use your debit do a Keep the Change program
11. Use Advertisements on your blog, place things close that that people will accidentally click on them
12. If you have a hobby turn it into money
13. Get a Job

Leave a comment if you want more information on any of these ideas

I'm really falling behind on my surveys. I can't seem to stay ahead right now and last night I didn't want to get on the computer at all. My extra money scheme is starting to turn into a nightmare. Well, at least I'm saving money with coupons. Coupons are Cash at the grocery store. Just remember that. You can make money buying the paper every sunday. I consider the paper and investment

Monday, September 15, 2008


I just wanted to let everyone know. I messed up when applying to payperpost and used this new blog when i knew good and well that my blog had to be 30 days old. So of course I was denied. Oh well. I'll re-apply next month. I just wanted to update everyone on that one. I'm also going to be adding more advertising to this blog. I'm just working on my own template. I haven't done this stuff in so long so I'm having to re-learn everything. My husband is helping me though.

Survey a day!

So, i've been really busy lately. I was doing donation requests for my MOMS club and getting ready for MOMS club garage sale and i got sick, and taking care of my kids and working on traffic for my blogs and taking surveys and pushing myself to get it all done. Yuck. I think i'm not sick anymore so let me tell you about my survey taking

Taking surveys is paying off a little. I like to think of them as coupons anyways. I took a couple 75 cent surveys last week and I'll cash in with them in October. Lightspeed is my favorite they are so fast. I got a check from some company last week and then another check this week. They were both a couple dollars but hey, that's like five coupons. I got a coupon from Kelloggs for a free box of cheeze its. That's another three dollars. I also have gotten two packages of four roll toilet paper. I think that's about it.

My other ad things aren't doing anything, but I don't expect them to since I don't have any traffic on this site. My entrecard people have dropped off into nothing. I think tomorrow I'll work on Entrecard and Twitter and enter some contests over at My best friend's site.

Contests - someone always has to win Might as well be you

Diaper Giveaway.

Did this commercial make you laugh?

I had my first child a year ago and was really new at the whole nine yards. How do you know which diapers to use, how do you know when to change diapers. We didn't like the hospital brand so we changed to Huggies natural supreme. They work really well. One thing we learned, and I think many parents learn this way is when to change sizes. We always knew it was time to change sizes when my daughter had what I like to call a power poo. If the Huggies Supreme couldn't hold in the power poo nothing could. So we would know to change the size. I know that poo doesn't make people laugh like pee. I have not changed the diaper fast enough on my son that was born in March and gotten peed on. Still not funny to me, but I did think it was funny when my Grandmother told me that when she had her first born son that she didn't have any idea how to change a diaper and when she did it the first time, she lifted her son up and the diaper fell off and he peed on her.

You can enter to win some diapers at seven dogs and a baby. and at M80.

I'm also going to find out if I can have a contest myself. Wouldn't that be fun.

DaBib Giveaway

Wow, that is a small picture. You'll have to go to blessings abound to enter the contest. It is a cute bib.

Spitz Sunflower Seeds Giveaway

There is a contest you should sign up for. You can win Sunflower seeds. Go to Moody Maria There you leave a comment to enter. Then if you have a blog you can blog about it to earn even more entries. I love free stuff and know you all do too. So go enter. There are going to be 80 winners.

Bzz Agents

Do any of you use Bzzagent. I haven't gotten anything using bzzagent and i was wondering if anyone has. Also, how long did it take you to get an invitation to a campaign. I am at a level three so I'm pretty low on the totem pole. Let me know if any of you have had better luck with it than i have.

Widget Bucks

Ok, I just signed up with Widget Bucks. It was very easy because they have a plug in that goes directly into Blogger. i didn't even have to copy and paste. I love easy. Now I know I still need to work on traffic to my site so I'm going to be doing that for a while. I'll let you know how Widget Bucks and my other ads do as I find out. Also wanted to let you know that other ways to make money are taking surveys and saving money through coupons. Use coupons to save. Think of coupons as money. They are just like cash in grocery stores.

Coupon Giveway

You have to visit this site for a huge coupon giveway . I hope I win but I still wanted to share this with everyone I know.


Ok, I just signed up for payperpost and I don't match up for any of the blogging opportunities yet. That's ok, it was very easy to sign up but it's a little confusing finding out if I added their script correctly or not. I followed the directions on their website and their video tutorial. I'll give it a few days and then let everyone know how it goes.


How does google work? I'm going to test them out and let you know. Stay tuned.

Getting Started

When getting a blog up and going it sure does take a lot of work. You have to get your name out there, also known as traffic. I'm using entrecard to get started. Just as I am with my other blog I am also going to different companies looking for blogging opportunities. I signed up my new blog with snapbomb to see how much my advertising is working. My other blog isn't getting the right kind of traffic. I get a lot of hits but they are only entrecard hits. I have learned a lot in the last month about what I need to do for both of my blogs. As I proceed through my advertising, I'll leave snippets of advice for others to follow. For now I've got a lot more clicking to do.

New Blog

Ok, so i have to many ideas and trying to get readership for one and then i decided why don't i have two blogs. One where I can test things out and the other where I can find a groove and stick to it. So this one is going to be my ads and a few other things.
