My new dehydrator!

Pin It

  • All of my SwagBucks and CrowdTap work has paid off!
    The patented converge-flow drying system ensures even drying, no need to rotate trays. With 700-watts of power food dries in hours, not days. The adjustable thermostat ranges from 95-to-160-degrees and provides greater flexibility and better results. Includes five trays but expands to 12 trays with LT-2SG add-a-tray accessories (sold separately). Also includes fruit roll up sheet, clean-a-screen. Contemporary...

All of my SwagBucks & CrowdTap work has paid off with some to spare! I ordered this tonight!

MyView Survey Company

Pin It
I belong to several survey sites. MyView is one of my favorite sites. I enjoy taking their surveys. When you sign up they will give you points for filling out your profile details. You can redeem the points for gift cards, products or your choice of charities. At one time they did have a pre-paid Visa card as an option but it has been removed since I cashed out last time. Here is the link if you want to join.

Movie Review for GONE

Pin It

We rented this movie last night from RedBox. I was really impressed with it. Amanda Seyfried does a great job of playing the role of the Jill Parrish.

 Jill was kidnapped a year earlier out of her bed, taken to a national forest, dropped into a large hole and left there until her kidnapper decided he wanted to play with her. Amazingly she breaks away from the kidnapper and is found by hikers. A year later her sister disappears from their house. The character is paranoid and scared but determined to save her sister. She only has 12 hours and no help from the police to get this done. 

It is a predicting plot but the way Amanda Seyfried portrays the panic driven character makes the movie. Watch this trailer below.

myLot (Paid to Post)

Pin It
I am a member of myLot. myLot is a social board where you create conversations on topics that you find interesting. You can also comment on conversations that other members have created.  You can also earn money for simple tasks and searching. I have belonged to myLot for several years now. Payout is via PayPal and the amount has to be $10. It does take some time to earn the $10 but it is a simple way to earn. Some people get frustrated at the amount of time it takes to earn but if you are like me, once you get there the social aspect and the friends you will make will be worth more than the money. Here is my link.

I have been a member of MyPoints for several years now. It is easy to earn points, read email, search the web, complete survey's, play games, shop online,  print coupons & use them or even book travel. (While booking travel you will earn both miles & reward points when booking through MyPoints).  You can cash out for 3 different things. They offer gift cards to restaurants and retailers, pay out via PayPal or a pre-paid Visa, or even use your Points on travel miles. It is a great program. I am very close to another $25 cashout. I cannot decide if I am going to use it on Amazon or get cash with PayPal. If you are interested in signing up, let me know. I can invite you via email or on FaceBook.

Hello there folks, today I want to tell you about a program that I have earned from. Beezag is really simple. You watch videos (commercials) and get paid for it. They are normally short and sweet. What type of video you watch depends on the general information you fill out on your profile. They try to match your profile to videos and products that you would be interested in. As you are watching the videos two numbers will scroll across the bottom, top or sides of the video and you will have to plug these two numbers in at the end of the video to prove that you did watch it. Simple and an easy way to earn cash. Also with each video there is normally some sort of discount or offer on the product that you have seen the video for. Their payout is at $8. Eight thousand points equals $8. You can get cash, donate to a charity or spend your points on music. As for myself, I prefer the cash! I have cashed out with this company and I am very close to cashing out again. I am sitting at 7,131 points right now. Give them a try. It is a good way to earn a little cash and it does not take much time from your day. My referral link is listed below.

Memorial Day Weekend

Pin It
Hello there folks, I took a few days off. I hope that everyone has enjoyed their Memorial Day weekend. We had a good time. My Madagascar party was suppose to happen this weekend. We had a few families that were not going to be able to make it. My cousin and her kids were not feeling well so they could not make it. I decided that since that really would put a damper on the kids having fun I would just have it another weekend.  I will re-invite everyone. We went ahead and enjoyed a BBQ with the people that did show up. It was a good time. Today we just vegged out all day long! Now that was a good feeling. Tomorrow it is back to the grind again. I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend!

Took A Break Yesterday!

Pin It
I took a break from being online yesterday. My Aunt Becky, Uncle Willie and little cousin Landon were visiting from Georgia. We all met at my sister's house and had a bit of a family reunion. The kids and adults alike really enjoyed it. I took a picture of all of the kids together to share with everyone. Three of my boys are included in the picture. From left to right: Lil Keith (my 2 year old), Sommer (my niece), Autumn (my niece), Michael (my 22 year old), holding Adam (my 6 month old), Landon (cousin), Aunt Becky holding Elijah (my 6 month old). We had a really good time. Nice little break that everyone needs.

It is free and when you sign up they will automatically deposit $5 into your account. Cash-out is at $30 and they will send you a check. 

I am so glad I joined this site. They have been around for many years and have many satisfied members. Click on my banner below and join today to start earning.

My name is Michele and I am the proud Mama of 6 boys.  My boys are Michael (23), David (22), Anthony (19), Keith (3) & twins Elijah and Adam (16 months).  I started over late in life, having Lil Keith at the age of 37 and the twins at the age of 40! 

When I first opened this blog it was geared at sharing places to earn money online.  However, in the past several months I have changed my mind about the direction I want my blog to take.  I might include a few places to earn online every once in a while but I want to address so much more on my blog. 

I will be sharing posts about my family, my hobbies, reviews on products and movies, gardening, recipes I have tried or want to try as well as my addiction to Pinterest and the great ideas that I find on Pinterest and try to recreate! 

I hope you enjoy the blog!
