I have $481.66 to add to the extra income fund since my last deposit:
I sold 4 items on Ebay this month. All of them were electronic/computer items. After fees/shipping, I made $428.22. I feel that is definitely a nice addition to the extra income fund.
I think I have a few more items I can list next month before the seller fees change again at the end of March!
Yesterday, I listed 3 items on Craigslist. So far the responses have been spam I don't have much luck selling merchandise on Craigslist.
Looks like today will be another NSD!!
Yesterday I got a $2 check in the mail from Survey Savvy. I will add that to my extra income fund.
Today after work I stopped at Wal-mart. I found 1 penny in the parking lot and another by the exit door.
I love finding money!
I completed a Pinecone survey this weekend. I received a PayPal payment today for $3.
At work today, I found a penny in the bathroom.
I received a voice mail message from a scheduler with a mystery shopping company. I did assignments with this company previously. She stated that a mystery shop was available in my area. Generally, when a scheduler calls it means that a deadline is nearing and there are still assignments that need to be scheduled. Otherwise, an email is sent to make mystery shoppers aware of upcoming assignments and it is possible to self-assign a specific job.
Anyway, I suspected that the scheduler was desperate to assign a shop. I returned her call after I left work. She asked if I could do a restaurant mystery shop either tonight or tomorrow. The shopper previously assigned to this job failed to communicate with the scheduler and didn't enter the report online by the assignment due date. A $10 bonus was offered plus a reimbursement of $25 for the meal. Since I didn't have anything planned for this evening, I accepted the assignment. The scheduler kept thanking me throughout the conversation. I'm glad I made her day! When I got home from work, I gathered up the children and we were on our way to the restaurant. It turns out I spent $32.71 including tip. So I'm making a couple of extra dollars, plus a free meal!!
I had 2 NSDs this weekend. No need to go anywhere and spend money!
I got a refund check in the mail yesterday from the cable company. We switched from cable to satellite TV and I had a few days credit left since we switched in the middle of the billing cycle. The amount of the check was $7.79. I will add that to the extra income fund since the money was already budgeted for cable.
Have a great Sunday!
Yesterday I received a refund check in the mail for $5.19. Also I got a Paypal deposit for $33.17 reimbursement for a mystery shop.
Today I just traded some coupons with a fellow coupon fanatic. She sent me $2.20 through Pay Pal for those.
So a bit over $40 to send to the extra income fund!
Last Sunday I listed 5 items on Ebay. All of those are ending today. Each item has bids and plenty of watchers. I will be happy to get rid of some clutter and have some extra money.
Normally I use Turbo Tax to do my federal taxes, but I'm researching other options this year. Even though I get a discount through an investment company, it stills ends up costing *at least* $50. I'm thinking about using Tax Act since it is free for everyone with no income limits...Does anyone have any feedback using Tax Act? I doubt that I'm getting a refund. I may just complete the online forms and save it. Then I can submit it closer to the deadline. We will see what happens...
Last night I did another mystery shop at a restaurant. I just finished submitting the information online a bit ago. We stopped at Wal-mart to get a few things. I found a nickel in the parking lot and a penny on the floor near the exit doors.
Have a nice Sunday! I will post the Ebay profits in a few days!!
I'm adding $108.42 to the extra income fund since the last time I updated it. This money is from:
$35.00....Mystery Shop Reimbursement
$03.80....Coupon Trade Sale
That brings my total to $8,272.36!!
I received a refund check for $10.98 from Rite Aid yesterday.
In addition, I earned a whopping 9 cents from You Data this week that has been added to my Pay Pal account.
So a little extra money going towards the extra income fund!
I had another day off work today due to the weather. I have been home for 2 days now, so 2 NSDs. I didn't actually get the driveway shoveled completely until today. My muscles are really aching now!!
Tomorrow evening I have a restaurant mystery shop to do. I will probably run a few errands as well.
I had off work today due to the snow storm. I'm not sure about going to work tomorrow either because it is still snowing with blizzard-like conditions. My children had off today as well. I shoveled part of the driveway, but it is drifted again plus there is additional snow...
I found a nickel and 3 pennies walking to the building where I work yesterday. Then, I stopped at Staples before heading home. I bought DD a calculator and some pencil lead using my Staples Rewards certificate, so I paid $0 OOP. Near the checkout area I found another penny.
My internet access has been intermittent today...I hope that it doesn't go completely out!
Yesterday I received 2 refund checks in the amount of $14.48, which will be added to the extra income fund.
We are expected to get *at least* another foot of snow tonight into tomorrow....probably will be another NSD!!
when I got a call earlier this week asking me to work today. Normally I would have definitely jumped at the chance, since I could certainly use the $. Plus, this is the job I formerly worked at on Saturdays...however, with 2-3 feet of snow predicted for that area today would have made it virtually impossible for me to get there! They call me so rarely to fill-in, I just really wish I could have done it. On a good day with no precipitation it would take me about 1 1/2 hr to get there, but certainly worth the pay. I don't think I could have gotten there in my Honda Civic.
I called them back to decline the offer, explaining my concerns and the receptionist said that if the winter storm was too bad, they would most likely cancel the scheduled patients anyway. I told them to keep me in mind in the future when a clinician wanted a day off.
So the snow stopped falling a couple of hours ago here. DS and a few neighborhood children shoveled the driveway. It looks like we got about 20 inches!
According to the forecast, we are supposed to get about 12 inches of snow tonight, then another 4-6 tomorrow with blizzard-like conditions!!
I received Staples Rewards in the mail today totaling $30.80, of which $6 was from recycling printer cartridges.
Looks like I will be having another couple of NSDs!!
I got another refund check in the mail from Rite Aid today for $4.99, which I will add to my extra income fund.
Yesterday, I received 3 refund checks in the mail totaling $7.48. I will add that to my extra income account.
Today may be another NSD...we will see!
I had 2 NSD this weekend. I didn't go anywhere on Saturday or Sunday. It felt great not to be spending money, not to mention the gasoline I saved by not running a bunch of errands!
