If you are just looking to earn a few extra fun dollars on the side, these are some great ideas you can try. Join Smart Panel, a new survey site where you earn rewards to share your experiences about how you use the internet. None of them are intended to make you rich – but they are really fun things that you can try to earn cash while meeting people and developing new skills. Most of those listed are free to begin, meaning your creativity, time and effort are all you will need to get started.
Your smartphone opens a huge number of opportunities for you to make money at times when you might be unproductive, commuting, or wasting time. Gigwalk is one example of a program you can use, posting tasks that range in payment between $3 and $90 that you can complete while you’re out. Tasks include shopping, rating, completing store surveys, taking photos, testing mobile apps, etc. You can also try Field Agent and Easy Shift, which pays in items like gift cards and has easy to find tasks to complete.
Incentivized Freebie Websites (IFW) (also known as GPT – Get Paid To), are both loved and hated by some. IFW sites are basically online rewards programs that reward you for taking certain actions.
I have been using a number of IFWs for years and I can say that they are a great source for earning little pocket change and free gift cards.
If you love listening to and discovering new music, there are ways you can make a little money while doing so. Try Swagbucks, the famous rewards program that pays you for watching videos, taking surveys, shopping and more.
Generally reviews begin at about 5 cents, but as you gain a profile and background you can move up and earn a bit more. You stand to earn $30 to $40 a month in extra pocket money for something you might be doing anyway! Customer feedback is a valuable resource for any business, and they get the feedback by paying market research companies to conduct surveys for them.
And to give people an incentive to participate, the market research companies pay people with some of the money they get from companies and businesses.
You can sign up for multiple websites to try your luck and see which type work best for you.
Once signed up with a site, you will usually receive emails with surveys available for completion and details of what you will earn. Generally, payment per survey is relatively small (between $1 and $5) but rises with more complex studies.
Surveys are definitely not a source of income you can rely on entirely, but they can bring you a nice sum of pocket money each month depending on how many you complete. As more and more people begin to work from home, the “microjobs” or freelance, single-job marketplace is growing bigger every day. Generally, these small jobs pay between $5 and $50 and can often be completed within an hour. In your spare time, it can be worthwhile to enter the free contests and competitions that are often offered by companies and retailers as a promotion. Generally, you can enter by just providing a little bit of information, and the results can pay off hugely if you’re lucky. Remember, this is more of a fun shot-in-the-dark than something you can depend on for usable income. When getting started, you might consider setting up a separate email account to ensure that you don’t receive too many notifications or newsletters in your regular inbox. If you spend a lot of time online, getting paid to click on advertisements might be a great option for you! I should also mention that most paid to click sites have evolved to offer other opportunities as well.
For example, InboxDollars, started as a site where they would pay members to click on the ads in their newsletter emails. There are tons of different things you can do as a freelancer, from writing simple articles to designing logos, to building websites and more. EarningStation is a new rewards program that pays you for doing things you already do online.
It’s funny, I started doing freelance video production in high school, just to make a few dollars here and there.
7 Tips for Selling Handmade Jewelry OnlineMaking handmade jewelry and selling it online is a great way to supplement your income. Judging by the amount of complaints filling up my News Feed, it looks like just about everyone now has the new Facebook Timeline.
So with all this change and newness (and grumbling) rolling around Facebook, now is probably as good a time as ever to step back and reexamine our relationship with the planet's favorite place to both stalk ex-girlfriends AND play Scrabble.


And doing it several times an hour will result in something else straight out of high school: Your friends will stop talking to you. And as a friend points out, all those well-intended baby pic posts are probably especially eyeroll-inducing for all your single friends anxiously watching their biological clock keep ticking. Because it is summer and all the kids are home during the day, my home is messier than usual.
I love chore charts, but as with most things in life, I find that adding a bit of variety is key to success.
My kids do well with a big list of small tasks- they like to mark things off and see progress. Perhaps if your kids are older, a big list will seem daunting and you’ll want to keep it short- but the point is, find something what works and then run with it!
We’ve been using these charts for 3 weeks now and my kids are still excited about using them. Print them, fill them out, then put them in a sheet protector or laminate them so you can use them with a dry erase marker. Follow our every move on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Pinterest and join us each Thursday for our fabulous link party! MISSISSIPPI (WITI) — A Mississippi mother says school officials told her her young daughter was injured on the playground. Police are apparently not investigating the incident — saying there is no indication anything criminal took place, and the school says no other children were involved in the incident. Harris says her daughter has told her she was attacked, but because no teachers were there to witness it, there is no proof another student was involved. I sure hope with all this attention that the police will be forced to get to the bottom of it.
Since a criminal investigation needs to take place before Lacey can go over the abusive child’s parents in a civil suit to cover those medical expenses, and bill collectors wait for NO ONE, a recently-divorced, working mother of 3 who has to take off work to meet with school officials, legal counsel and medical professionals, with an unemployed ex-husband, has limited funds to pay these continually-increasing medical bills. Instead of making your ignorant, snarky comments about what you THINK is someone else’s responsibility, how about you join us in our fight to force the school to provide better playground supervision for our children, and our urging that police investigate the other child’s home environment to find the cause of this brutal, violent behavior? Just because you are a single mother with a deadbeat baby daddy doesn’t mean you accept govt assistance.
Why is there an assumption that single mothers whose children have deadbeat fathers are on welfare? I Notice that some commenters said that the mother with the injured child should pay medical bills for the entry of her child. Please stop accusing the mother or someone that was not at the school of doing this and read the story.
The school claims this happened on the playground, they also say no other children were involved. If the police department does not do any thing…turn it over to ACLU this child has had her civil right ignored !
This is just terrible for that child i sure hope the Mother hasn’t sent her back to that school. All the approximate numbers given are a guide only, and you may find that you have more or less success with certain tactics. Sifting through them to find the ones that are legit and actually pay can be a tedious task.
If, however, you are willing to dedicate time while you listen to music or watch TV, you stand to earn a few extra dollars without much mental or physical effort.

They're all taken with an outstretched hand positioned around forehead-level with the camera tilting down.
Begging for attention by posting cryptic status updates that would appear as if you left off a really crucial second sentence. In an effort to help control the mess and keep the productivity up in my home, we’ve come up with a system that helps a ton! If I have a chart with 3 things they need to get done everyday, some things don’t get done, chores get boring faster and the charts become useless.
Lacey Harris says her daughter’s injuries indicate something far more sinister occurred. Why don’t you let my five year old kick you repeatedly in the face with some hard shoes?


Lacey has every intention of taking every cent not spent on legal and medical necessities and donating it to an anti-bullying charity. People are actually saying the mother had no right to seek financial help for medical bills! As soon as my kids bump their knee there’s a bruise cuz their bones aren’t as strong as an adults they bruise easier n quicker than that of an adult!! Now that baffles me because I was under the impression the school was now in charge of the welfare of the children in their care.
A majority of these people do not have children, and the rest send them to expensive private schools that would not allow this thing to happen for fear of a tarnished reputation and multi-million dollar lawsuit. She can say what happened to her and she said someone kicked her constantly until she fell off the slide. I’ve seen for myself in high school where a guy was hit in the face and in a matter of minutes his face has swollen up like crazyy. From what I read, the school called the mum as soon as she fell, the bruising was not as bad at the time, she took her to hospital, where I am sure they ran CT and probably asked her to follow up with her pediatrician, which I am sure she did. Just goes to show where life can take you if you allow yourself to become passionate about something and continue to pursue and grow at it.

Unless your eyes and nose really are double the size of your mouth, I imagine you won't love the distorted view this tends to produce.
After 9 years and thousands of ideas, I realize I'll never be able to check them all off my list.
If the facilities are such that the children are not protected from harm then it stands to reason they should be responsible for those medical bills. I honestly think that the matter happened at school, the teachers obviously see how bad the situation is, and are sticking together because they don’t want to face the consequences. There is a type of trauma that it looks like she received to her forehead, a rather large hematoma, which usually takes a day or two to spread into the soft tissues around her nose, giving her that raccoon like appearance.

Why would mom make a big stink about it n why would the school confirm it happened at school?! This mother and child did not ask for what happened and it seems to me that they really aren’t being given any answers.
But I know down here if someone’s child comes home with a scratch, we asking questions and the stories better match. Not saying that another child may have kicked her off of the slide, unintentionally, but really a bloody beating? If u do hav kids n ur saying this then maybe u urself hav a bully for a kid or maybe ur a bully??
I think you people are missing the point, that this child was OBVIOUSLY beaten by somebody (that cannot happen from a fall, not like that) and whomever is responsible should have to pay the medical costs, as well as compensation for the emotional trauma this child has endured and will have to live with for the rest of her life. So now mum goes on FB, with the encouragement of her friends, not just to get justice but to ask for money. And yes, even though I fully recognize the lack of funding for school, I do think that the school is AT LEAST partially responsible, as it is their duty to act as In Loco Parentis (I know this because I’m going to school to become a teacher).
Which, until you know exactly what will be needed to cover expenses, how can one ask so soon?
What this means is they are to act as the parent in the absence of the student’s real parents. Not sure what if any justice will come from this, a little girl more traumatized than necessary because of all of the publicity, people accusing teachers without proof of negligence, police being called disgraceful.
They are responsible for ensuring the safety of their students through supervision and nurturing care while those students are at school.
Obamacare had affected so many people negatively, God knows what this families insurance issues might be. This is why things like this should not go straight to social media before all avenues have been investigated.
So all you people who jump to your conclusions without knowing your facts, you are what is wrong with this world. Not the single mothers, not even the ones who do need financial assistance to get by, it is you that is the downfall of society because of your continued arrogance, ignorance, and lack of education.
