Back in November I joined a site called Swagbucks--basically you just do your searches and earn points for it--I've earned enough for $65 in Amazon giftcards--not getting rich, but it has helped me to buy some fun stuff like a cast iron Dutch oven, a couple of books and helped to pay for my Kitchen-aid mixer! And it doesn't take a lot of work or time either.
I've put a "swidget" on the right side of this page, and if you are interested in finding out more click through!
While I've been in school after we got married I have been looking for ways to make a little bit of money at home for the "extra" things we don't have budgeted. This is one of the ways I've done it! I will post about some more of them later.
