Keeping Busy, Sane, And Safe

I’m trying my best to stay busy during this time of quarantine. Of course there’s always something to do. I’m never ever bored. Not sure how anyone could be with so much to do all the time. I am constantly racing against time to do as much as possible. I usually fail, but I keep trying. Those small wins, really do matter. Baby steps, right?

I can say that lots of cleaning has been done. Repeatedly. Except the dishes. I just can’t stand to do them. Once I start, I’m ok. I know that’s a major thing and usually no one else will do it, but getting there is difficult. I actually just found a used portable dish washing machine for sale online today. That may be a happy new addition in our tiny home. It might be a tight fit, since I also want a hot/cold water cooler. I know, they are so 80’s. My fiance tells me constantly how lame they are. I had one for years up until recently and I regret not taking it with me. I absolutely loved it. Except for the part where I had to obtain the bottles. That part sucked. I guess we shall see.

I’ve also been doing all sorts of organizing, updating, filing, and so forth. I’ve fallen so far behind with this, that I have a few piles started here and there. Usually I do this during the mercury retrograde, but I wasn’t properly prepared for this last one. I’m a major dork. Give me a pack of sticky notes and I’m happy. Everything must be labelled, things need to be in bins, and paperwork must be in chronological and priority order. I have OCD and ADHD, so I often get distracted while being super focused on a particular project for a while. Hence, the multiple piles started here and there. But I get through them all, eventually.

Since I’m always working on anything that provides an extra few bucks for my family, I figured I’d take this time to follow up on the sites and apps I’ve been working with. Some were a bit more time consuming so I’ve been delaying them till now. I’ve been narrowing down a few more survey sites and places to get free Amazon items. I’ve also cashed in on a few Amazon cards from playing games and scanning receipts. My eBay has also been updated with a few ongoing coin listings. I expanded to a few other selling sites.

I have ventured out as needed for medications and food, but I make those trips as little as possible during this time. My family won’t let me leave without a mask and gloves. It’s so strange when I’m out driving. Very little traffic or people in general. Fast food places only have their drive thru’s open. Places are now delivering that didn’t before. E-vists are becoming standard, as doctor offices don’t want you to spread anything further. We all have to be safe everyone. Even if you feel like you won’t get it, someone else you interact with might.

How are you staying busy, sane, and safe?

The Rewards Are The Reason

Sometime soon, I plan to update the Financial Tips page. There’s several more sites to add that I’ve been using. I also realized that I added some that haven’t actually paid me yet. I tend to get side tracked and lose my train of thought. I really want to make a point to separate those that are legit, tried, and true.

That’s the whole point of sharing all this on my site. I’ve experienced not being paid, wasting too much time, contacting customer service multiple times, researching, and so forth. I have been doing the crappy part of the work and discovered what is right for me. Now, those that are interested can partake in the benefits part with me. All I ask is that my referral links and codes are used. Most of the time when you do this, both parties get some sort of extra rewards.

The rewards are absolutely the only reason I do any of this. I honestly never had any interest in playing games on my phone. Except for that time I was obsessed with Dragon Vale for a while, but that didn’t last long. I viewed anything unproductive as a complete waste of time and other things should be done instead. When I learned about being paid to play games, this finally intrigued me. I looked into several apps. One paid me, but then stopped accumulating points. I ran into all sorts of snags, but I have found one that has been pretty decent. It’s called Mistplay. So far, I made $40 and I’m just about to cash out another $25.

I am taking a break from testing out any extra apps at the moment. It’s time consuming and I want to check out a few other things. I definitely need to do more surveys. If you find the right ones, they actually can be profitable. They are a bit of a timed, focused commitment which I struggle with. I will add the ones I have been successful with at some point. My latest endeavor has been testing and receiving discounted and free Amazon items. There’s one site I’ve received several items from, but it’s not always successful. I am working on researching some other sites at the moment.

Are there any apps or sites that you are using to make or save a few extra bucks? Share what works for you and any referral codes you may have as well.

Skullshine Sharing Some Savings

I’m obsessed with saving money and making a couple extra bucks. There’s too many apps out there that will supposedly help. I’ve gone through so much time researching and stressing to better myself financially. I figured it was a good time to begin sharing some of the things I’ve discovered along the way.

As with most things on my site, the Financial Tips page will be updated when possible. For the time being I have listed the companies that I have had the most success with cash back so far. Games, surveys, and much more will be added shortly.

Please feel free to share your experiences as well. Any feedback is also appreciated.

Thanks bunches!
