February Side Income Report

It's that time again!  My monthly side hustle income report!  I started doing this in January of this month just as a fun way to see how much my girlfriend and I can actually make in side jobs from home.  You can see my January income report by clicking HERE .  My focus was on other things this month so we didn't do as well with our online income/app incomes.  However, the amount we made was significantly higher than last month because of those efforts.

February's side hustle:
$5 from SWAGBUCKS (search & earn, use coupons, watch videos, etc!)
$3.18 from an app called "pact", this app challenges you to work out, eat more veggies, and log your food daily.  If you miss your challenge, then you have to pay.  If you hit your goals each week, you earn money from those who didn't and had to pay
$50 from watching our friends daughter two days after school 
$4 from an app called "slide joy" (only available on the android market)
$44.50 in lose coins we had laying around.  (This is more than just one months worth, so next month it will be more accurate)
$50 from my girlfriend helping her sister make and sell things online
$506 from direct sales

Bringing our total side hustle income for the month of February to $662.68 or $165.67/week.  I tend to doubt that March's side hustle income with come close to February's but it was an amazing month all around!  It just goes to show that these things can be done! 

We are always looking for new apps/websites/side hustle ideas so if you have any, please share!

January Side Income Report

Recently I have been getting back into making more money online.  I have always been interested in making money online, but I have been more motivated lately to do so.  I have since decided to start posting each money how much money I am making from my side hustles.  

Currently I am working 45 hours a week doing nails in the salon/spa I have worked in for four years now.  I work 6 days a week there.  Four long days and two shorter days. My goal is to make enough money online/on my phone each month so that I can actually drop one day out of my schedule.  

I have really just started to focus on earning more money outside of work so it will be really interesting to see how my income grows.

I have also gotten my girlfriend interested in earning money online/through her phone as well so each month we will post our combined incomes.

January Income:
$50 from Achievemint, this is an app I linked with my fitbit.  Once you earn 50,000 points they mail you a $50 gift card.
$5 from InstaGC , thi site is awesome, check out the post I wrote about it HERE)
$5 from Swagbucks Search and earn, or watch videos, use coupons, etc!  Tons of ways to earn on this site! 
$5 from an app called "slidejoy", this is one my gf used and we've gotten paid from them twice.  Only available for androids.
$5 from an app called "lucktastic", this is also one my gf uses on her phone, it's daily scratch tickets.  Also only available for android phones.
$5 from an app called "receipt hog", simply take a picture of your receipts and earn coins redeemable for paypal or amazon gift cards.  Use code "spek2590" for extra spins
$50 from my gf helping her sister sell things online
$3.03 from an app called "pact", this app challenges you to work out, eat more veggies, and log your food daily.  If you miss your challenge, then you have to pay.  If you hit your goals each week, you earn money from those who didn't and had to pay.
$25 from an app called offerup where you sell things you no longer want.  

This brings our total side income for January 2016 to $153.03 or $38.25/week.  It's not much but for starting only halfway through the month I would say it's not bad!  

Each month I will be updating what we make that month so stay tuned!

Christmas Shopping...Wait..What?

It's that time again!  I have started Christmas shopping this past weekend and i hope to be done by the first week of December.  I don't know about you but I would much rather shop at once but pay in payments so I have complied a list of stores that are offering layaway this holiday season.

K-mart : Most of the kmart stores near me have closed down, and the only one that I know of is in not the greatest of areas and typically doesn't have anything I need.  You can do online and in store layaway here though which is great!

CLICK HERE to start your layaway at kmart 

Sears :  Sears has purchased kmart and is also offering online and in store layway.  This is great if you have men in your life who want power tools!  They also have a ton of Disney Frozen themed merchandise for those of you who have mini people who are obsessed with Elsa & Anna like my mini person is.

CLICK HERE for Sears online layaway 

Walmart : This is another store offering in store and online layaway!  I don't know about you but online layaway sounds AMAZING to me.  There are always rules so make sure you check the specifics about each store you try!

CLICK HERE for Walmart online layaway

Burlington Coat Factory : They don't offer online layaway but they do have in store layaway.  I have personally used their layaway and they have a ton of stuff always to choose from!

Marshalls :  Not every Marshalls location has layaway, you will have to use their site to check the locations near you that offer it.  I used their layaway last year and it was great.  On the store locator list the stores that offer layaway will be indicated with a hanger next to the location.

CLICK HERE to find the location near you 

Toy R US : Is also offering in store and online layaway which is probably the one that I am most excited about this holiday season!  They literally have everything that your kids could want and it's so much better to shop online rather than fight the crowds this time of the year!

Younique Beauty..The BEST mascara in the world!

So as you all may know, I am slightly OBSESSED with all things beauty.  A few months back, a friend of mine on Facebook started posting like crazy about this new mascara she had tried and was amazed by it.  She posted pictures and I knew I had to try it.  Enter Younique's 3d Fiber Lash Mascara.  OH. MY. GOD. She was NOT kidding how amazing this stuff is.  Just take a look at my personal results!

Now at this point I knew I had to sign up to be a presenter.  I signed up to be a presenter before I even received my mascara because I'll try anything once.  I SOLD my first mascara before I had even tried it myself, this stuff is that good.  It literally sells itself.

If you're interested you can click my link HERE to try it, to learn more information about signing up to sell, you can also see all the other products we have to offer!  I will do separate posts on all of the products and go more in depth with those as well.

A few years ago, when I was a pregnant with my daughter, I had to stay home on bed rest. I ended up being terribly sick and had to quit my job.

That was when my blogging and making money from home began. I tried many different ventures, and while I'm no millionaire, I definitely do not worry about living paycheck to paycheck anymore.

I only wish THIS website had been around back then because it would have definitely made me more money than I had been at the time!

So what are you waiting for?? Go start earning some INSTANT gift cards!!

Colgate SlimSoft! The best new toothbrush around!

Recently I had the chance to try out a new (AWESOME) toothbrush from colgate.  I am admittedly a toothbrush snob, and shockingly, I know, I actually prefer a manual toothbrush.

ENTER Colgate Slimsoft.  This toothbrush has much slimmer bristles than the regular toothbrush does, so it can REALLY get in those tight hard to reach spaces between your teeth. 

I had been using a much bigger, bulkier toothbrush and it was making my gums bleed (though I think a lot of that is my fault since I brush rather hard), nonetheless this one has been amazing. 

My teeth look whiter, my mouth feels fresher and cleaner!  It's safe to say, I'M SOLD!

So if you're in the market for a new toothbrush, definitely check this one out lovies! 

Disclaimer:  I received this toothbrush, paste, and mouthwash for free in exchange for an HONEST opinion.  No monetary compensation was received for writing this review.
