August Snowflakes

September 6th, 2013 at 03:36 pm

As I said before, August was slow for the snowflakes. I received the following:

Swagbucks $25.00
Found Money .25
Ebay Sales Proceeds 36.48

Total $61.73

That brings the total for the year to $497.20. I'm thinking of sending the majority of this to CC debt, as it has just been sitting in a savings account...

Today was a NSD. I did a few loads of laundry which I dried on the line. I also earned over 200 Swagbucks, most of which were from doing surveys!

Tomorrow I have to work 4 hours, which may give me a couple of hours of overtime this week with the holiday pay. It won't be much, but certainly a few extra dollars!

Snowflake Ideas

May 26th, 2013 at 02:20 pm

I'm looking for some different ideas for how to accumulate snowflakes. Since I don't have the time to post on here very regularly anymore (although I do read the blogs), I thought I would take a few moments to read some of my own blog entries too. I noticed that compared to a few years ago, it takes me much longer to accumulate extra money. A huge source of my extra income previously had been my Saturday job (which I no longer have). I also rarely do mail in rebates anymore either. Plus, I certainly don't find nearly as much "found" money as in the past.

I have done Swagbucks for several months now, which I've been able to cash out for gift cards or Pay Pal--that is helpful. CCF, how are you able to accumulate so many Swagbucks per month? I do some surveys; however, I don't qualify for many of them.

Other than the extra ways of earning money posted on the side bar, does anyone have any other suggestions?? Thanks!

A couple of weeks ago I completed a mystery shop at a local chain restaurant. Yesterday a $25 reimbursement was deposited into my Pay Pal account. In addition a PP deposit was made from You Data for $0.19!!

I will add this amount to my extra income fund!

I've updated the sidebar and I now have $8,119.62 in this account.

I Exceeded My Extra Income Goal for 2009!!

January 2nd, 2010 at 09:49 am

Even though I have been tracking my extra income, I haven't posted an update entry since September. Since 9/6/09 I am happy to report that $1,235.53 has been added to my extra income account!!

$299.68....Refund Checks
$406.34....Saturday Income
$294.91....Mystery Shop Fees/Reimburse
$006.00....Interest (9/09-12/09)
$076.25....Ebay Profits
$001.40....You Data
$115.21....CC Rewards
$000.74....Found Money

The grand total that I've saved in this account for 2009 is $8,114.55!!

I didn't actually think that this goal was within reach since I have only been working on an "as needed" basis on Saturdays. Prior to September, I had been working every Saturday. I will have to check my pay stubs, but I know without a doubt that the vast majority of this extra money was from this source.

Unless I am able to work more Saturdays (either in present position or attain another one), I most likely will not be able to set a goal like this for 2010. I'm just being realistic. However, I do plan to have an extra income fund for 2010. I will definitely track everything like I have in the past. It is fun to see how much passive income I can accumulate each month, I just don't know about setting a goal this time.

Rebate & Rewards!

November 10th, 2009 at 08:02 pm

I got a rebate check from the October Rite Aid Single Check program in the amount of $114.60!!! It was all FAR items that consisted mainly of cold products. I had several coupons for the items too, so I made some extra money. Some of the products I won't use, but I want to donate them to a homeless shelter or another charity.

Also, I received a check from Citi Rewards for $65.21.

So a few more dollars for the extra income fund!!

Refund Checks + Gift Cards

July 3rd, 2009 at 04:17 pm

I got $6.88 in refund checks in the mail this week.

Today I transferred a prescription from another pharmacy for DD to earn a $25 GC at Rite Aid. The copay for generic prescriptions is $15, so I profited $10 there.

I recently got reimbursed for the Cheesecake Factory mystery shop I did a few weeks ago. The repayment of monies spent is rewarded in the form of a GC, so I got $30 for that. I have another mystery shop scheduled there for tonight, so I am able to use the GC for the assignment. This one I'm doing tonight pays $40 reimbursement!

So I will add the $40 from the GCs + the refund checks to my extra income fund for the week.

Have a great evening!!
