2 new ways to make money

February 19th, 2012 at 10:40 am

I read about both the following ideas in the All You magazine. I don't plan to do either one, but thought I'd share in case anyone else could use them.

The first one is advertise on your car for $200 - $400/month. You need to have a good car and drive a lot. Here's the links...

The second idea is get paid to do small tasks like write a document or tape yourself testin a website. Tasks take 30 min and pay can be $5 - $18 per task.

I got gas this morning at Safeway. I had .30 off so paid $2.699/gal. I got 20 gallons and paid $54.31. I paid using a CC that gives 5% back this quarter.

I stopped at Staples and picked up their freebies for president's day. Deals are only good today and tomorrow. I got all the following for free after Staples rebates.

2 packages 500 sheets Staples copy paper - $5.49/each
2 packages 8 ct colored ballpoint pens - $5.99/each
2 packages 2 ct 200 sheet Kleenex - $2.99/each. I had 2 .50 coupons I used on the Kleenex also.

I'll donate the pens, but will keep everything else. If the pens were black I would have kept one pack of those. I already applied for the rebate online and will get almost $30 back. i paid using an 8% discounted Staples gift card.

I finished reading my book Dark Hunger by Christine Feehan. Paranormal - ok, I liked the others in the series better.

    If you go to that 2nd site and peruse the jobs, you'll see most pay .02 or .04. There was one that took 60 minutes to do and paid .01.

    these are even worse than the online surveys in terms of taking advantage of people. Don't think it's worth the effort.

    I signed up for the car advertising thing years ago but i guess you need something really spiffy.

    Unless I'm misreading it...

    do a search for jobs paying $5 or more. I found several in the $5 to $15 range, just nothing I was interested in. It's mostly for bored money. You're bored and do something for a half hour and get $5. Smile
