Back In the Saddle Again--Gene Autry

Hey people! You're shocked to see me, I know!! I'm gonna ease back into this blogging thing now that Tyler is back.

For my first post back I'm going to tell you how I've been making some cash, because while I work 14 hours a day and am on call the other 10, being a momma doesn't pay in cash.

First up, Music Director. I know I mentioned this when I got the job, but I'm the music director at our church: Twenty-Sixth Street Baptist Church. Our church is on the move, so if you're looking for an old school Baptist church with young blood (our pastor is 32), we're the church for you. I get a VERY meager salary, for this, but the blessings are many.

Another money maker I'm using is the WeReward iPhone (and Android) app.

You essentially take a picture of yourself in various establishments and make money for it. For example on Saturday, Tyler and I ate at Panera Bread. I took a picture of Tyler with his food and the Panera logo and got paid 50 points/$0.50! If you're going out to eat there's no reason NOT to do this!! Payment is through PayPal. If you're interested, here's the link: Please if you're going to sign up, do me a solid and use my link.

Next up, This is also an iPhone app that pays. It's kind of like secret shopping, except much easier. You open the app and it gives you a list of jobs in your area.

If you accept a job, a counter starts and you have 2 hours to complete it. It is as simple as answering a couple questions in the store and taking a picture. It takes 5 minutes tops and the average job pays $4.00-$5.00 bucks!

Lastly, we come to couponing. I know this isn't actually making money, but it saves big bucks! So far my biggest savings has been 49%! This isn't as much as some folks, but for me it's a great deal. Coupons take some work. To get the deals, you have to not only cut and carry the coupons, but know store policies. Tip: your best savings are at places that double coupons. Our Walmart is currently doing this up to $0.99, but you have to separate out the coupons with each item which is a serious pain, so it's still Kroger for me, thanks.

Wanna chat about money makers and money savers? Shoot me a comment. I LIVE for them, they let me know you're reading this.

Guess I am going to have to check these out and tell all my friends that eat out. Sounds funny to get paid for eating out!

Glad to see that you are back to blogging...missed you!
