Make Money With a Blog

If you are trying to make some extra money in order to save some extra money (after all, it's tough to save money if you have none left to save at the end of the day!), you could consider starting your own blog.

The key to blogging is to find a subject you are passionate about. Something that you would enjoy writing about on a daily basis, and sharing with others. Experts in the blogging arena will tell you that niche blogging is a great way to go. The more specific your subject is, the better. Also you want to find a subject that is not overly-saturated in the blogosphere- easy to say, but harder to do.

You might want to consider setting up an e-commerce site where you set up an online store and sell products. In this case, dedicated server hosting is needed.

I know many people that run several blogs and/or websites, and do so full time. If you do fall in love with blogging (easy to do!), and set up several blogs, multiple domain hosting will allow you to host additional domains (different web sites) on the same account. A great source for researching web hosting is at
Blogging can be fun as well as an extra source of income. I suggest starting slowly, with a subject you love to talk about...a hobby you are knowledgeable about...and once you get started, remember to post often to keep your readers interested and coming back for more!

How to Save $10,000 This Year

I first posted this last Jan. (2011)- thought it was worthwhile posting again this year! Also, I mistakenly entered $24.40 in the original post as the amount to save each day-the correct amount is $27.40. 

Yes, you can save (or make--depending on how you look at it!) $10,000 by the end of this year, and it is really pretty easy.

Save $27.40 each day, and after 365 days, you will have saved $10,001 dollars.

Of course, since we are now about 14 days in to Jan., you will need to adjust that savings a bit- but still, you get the gist, right?

And if you save $10 a day, you can still have $3,650.

How about $5 a day? That will give you a nice savings of $1,825.

How to save money each day? Here are a few ideas:

Skip Starbucks--make your own coffee
Skip the take-out lunch--make peanut butter and jelly snadwiches
Make spaghetti 2 times a week--skip the meat
Buy a water filter and drink tap water--skip the bottled waters

Things To Do With Empty Cans of Soup

All of these ideas start with a clean empty soup can with no jagged edges. For some you may want to peel off the labels, others you might just leave the labels on!

1.. Having a picnic? Use empty Campbells soup cans as utensil holders for plastic forks and spoons on the picnic tables. (leave labels on ..adds a colorful unique touch!)

2.. Make a Halloween Decoration. Cover a soup can in black construction paper or fabric. Add some cut out eyes. For wings, color a paper plate black, Cut the plate in half. For each half, cut scalloped edges along one side, then glue "wings" to the side of the "bat can."

And a few more easy ways to recycle empty soup cans:

3. Use a nail and hammer to poke hole sin the bottom of sop cans and use as herb planters. Place a plastic lid under can to prevent rust stains.
4. Make Candlesticks (great tutorial from "Me Making Do")
5. Make a Flower-Shaped Cookie Cutter.
6. Make a Hanukkah Gift out of a soup can.
7. Make a Christmas Lum…
