Top Money Making Surveys This Month

Taking surveys to earn extra income is a proven method for those of you looking to make an extra $50 to $200 a month or more. The need for a little extra money is what led me to taking surveys back in 2008. When I learned that I could make money from home, I was sold. I’ve been asked numerous times “can you really make money taking surveys?“ and the answer is…YES!!  How much money you earn taking surveys depends on you, but if you set up a plan for tracking your survey income you can expect to make anywhere from $50 – $200 or more. Having this variety ensures that you only devote your time to the highest paying survey offers. Here’s a list [Click here to continue reading]

Growing Organic Beans and Tomatoes

During the summer I tried my hand at growing tomatoes and beans from seeds. I’ve grown vegetables before, but not in a few years. There’s something fascinating and fulfilling about harvesting produce from your own backyard. Everything seems to taste better and I feel better about eating it since I know where it was grown and in what type of environment.   Growing fruits and vegetables is not as easy at it looks on Pinterest, easpecially for a lazy gardener like myself.  My gardening style is more of a plant it and forget it style. I allow my gardens grow wild and they’re only watered when it rains. So far it’s worked for me and soon I’ll be harvesting some tomatoes and peas.  I have some delcious recipes planned with the [Click here to continue reading]

Back to School Means Back to “Me Time”

This #FoodMadeSimple shop has been compensated by #CollectiveBias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. I love having my kids home for the summer and I love when it’s time for them to return to school. When school is back in session the house is quiet and clean for a few hours. I get to indulge in mid morning ice-cream or candy and don’t have to explain to the kids why I’m eating snacks before noon. To prepare for my quiet mornings, I went to Walmart and bought salted caramel SKINNY COW® Ice Cream Candy Bars and SKINNY COW® milk chocolate Dreamy Clusters.  I was planning a morning of pampering and it would include chocolate. I thought about making a recipe, but both of [Click here to continue reading]

Here’s Why You’re Not Seeing Results from Exercising

When you think about getting fit what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Exercise right? Well, there’s another equally important component when it comes to getting into the best shape of your life. I’m not talking about getting in shape to look like a Victoria’s Secret model or a professional body builder. I’m talking about being a regular mom, but looking amazingly toned and strong. I worked out on and off for several years after having my four children. I went to just about every  type of class offered at my gym. I was feeling better inside, but I wasn’t seeing my body transform like I expected someone who works out twice a day should look. I had no abs and no muscle definition. This [Click here to continue reading]

Special Kids Cards to Wish Them Luck

I am a member of the Collective Bias® Social Fabric® Community. This #KidsCards shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for #CollectiveBias and its advertiser. My son has wanted to play team sports ever since he could talk. This year he’ll be on the basketball team and we are super excited.  To encourage him, I went to Walmart to see if I could find any cards for kids.  I was specifically looking for good luck cards and found some really nice ones made by Hallmark.  While there I learned there’s a Hallmark Card Rewards Program where you can earn rewards for every 5 Hallmark cards you buy.  I buy a lot of cards so this may be perfect for me.  I wanted [Click here to continue reading]
