Real Quick

Seems like I'm getting these blog posts later and later. Once again, I'm procrastinating, however. I have a very large teacher test tomorrow morning. The testing site in an hour away, so I will have to leave my house at 6:30 am. This means I will probably have to wake up around 5:30 am. I know that I am not going to sleep well tonight, so I might as well spend my time doing a homework assignment that I've had eight weeks to do but will do in a day. Oh, and this blog post.

So, with money tight, everyone is looking for a way to make an extra buck, right? Unfortunately, many ways to make "easy money" are extremely time consuming, too "gimmicky" or just plain bunk.

Luckily, this isn't the case with Swag Bucks. I don't even remember how I found Swagbucks. It's just one of those things that I stumbled upon and have been using ever since.

Swagbucks is primarily a search engine where you can earn "bucks" for your searches. You can trade these bucks in for different prizes - both digital and real. My favorite item to cash in are Amazon and Pay Pal gift cards. Unlike other programs, Swagbucks doesn't take forever to accumulate points (if you use it on a regular basis - which if you look at the picture below, you will see I have not in the past - but times, they are a changin'!).

Fridays are the days to search because they are called Mega Swagbucks Day and you can earn up to 100 Swagbucks for one search! I didn't think it was possible as I've never gotten anything above 12 Swag Bucks, but today, I earned 25 Swag Bucks!

I have spent most of my Swag Bucks on Amazon gift cards (see the above picture), but I've also bought entries in a raffle (I didn't win) and a desktop background.

There are tons of other ways you can earn Swag Bucks, including watching videos or taking surveys. I don't do this since I'm a full time wife, mother, and student, but if *you* decide to do it, please give me a shout and let me know it how works - TurtleMom23ATgmailDOTcom. I have included the Swagbucks widget in this post. (You can also find it aaaaall the way  at the bottom of my blog.) Simply click on the button that says SC (Swagcodes) and check to see if there are any listed. A lot of times, you can get Swagcodes delivered right to your Swagbucks homepage. Many of these emails include hints on where to find swagcodes (Swagbucks blog, etc) or by simply completing offers (they offer in difficulty and price. For example, some are completely free - likes games - while some are just trials - like Netflix).

Now, to go do homework!

Until next time...
