Register with the survey/focus groups that have been posted here
mostly in the Chit Chat forum. Depending on your profile that you
register, you will receive email invitations to participate. Most don't
pay a lot but a few do and the more you participate the more
invitations you will receive. Some of these companies let you
earn points for taking surveys then you can order gifts or GCs
from them with your earned points.
Also, sign up for points programs like www.mypoints.com
you earn points by reading emails and/or shopping through them.
You'd be surprised how quickly the points add up and you can
use them to get GCs from places you shop at or eat at. I use
my points from there to get GCs to give as gifts. I highly
recommend mypoints. Be careful which points programs you
go with because some are not reputable.
Another way to bring in some income is clean out your closets
and drawers, etc. and take items that are in good condition and
clean to a consignment shop, if there are any where you live.
Typically the shop keeps 50% of what an item sells for and you
get 50%. The last three months I have earned over $400
that way. Call them first to find out what items they are in
need of...for example, this time of year they usually accept
clothing for spring weather. Toys and household items are
accepted any time of the year.
Good luck and PM me if you have any questions.
