Make Money From Home


It has been a while since I have posted on ways to make extra money from home, but today I do have a new resource to share with you, called Fiverr.com.

Just like the name of the site, Fiverr is where tasks are listed at a price of Five dollars. There is no negotiating and no job posted at a price higher than $5.00. So you can list a task you will do, say write a review for someone's website, and list the price for this task at $5.00. If someone decides to purchase this task from you, they must first pay the $5 to Fiverr.com, who will in turn contact you via email that your task has been purchased. You will have a specified time limit to complete the task (the time limit is set by you when you post the task) and when it is complete, you are paid $4.00. Fiverr.com keeps $1.00 from each transaction as their fee and basic way of making money.

Browsing through the site, it is interesting to see the types of gigs people come up with to make money. From reading horoscopes, to emailing recipes, SEO services, writing names in the sand and sending customers pictures, you name it...you will probably find it (except of course any illegal or adult-only services, which are not allowed.) It is worth taking a look just to see if it stirs your creative juices and you think of something to post and get paid $4 for.

When a task is complete and you are paid, you can transfer the money in your account after 14 days (which is referred to as a safety period) to your Paypal account.

I have been reading reviews and so far it seems that this is indeed a growing successful site that people are earning extra money with. That gig about writing names in the sand and emailing the picture to customers-- according to a Woman's Day's article, that person is making $300 month.

Hi,

There are several sites very much like fiverr that is cropping up over the internet. I am a freelancer and I have been selling my services of writing articles to buyers in these micro job sites.

I want to share a tip with you and your readers. If you are looking to earn money and attract more people to buy your services, I suggest that you post to as many fiverr clones out there. Also, after you have delivered your service, ask kindly for a recommendation! Works like a charm!

Cheers!

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…

Home Made Halloween Costumes

Halloween is around the corner...so time to start cooking up some Halloween costumes you can make from home and save money while treating your little ghosts and goblins to a fun night!

This idea came from Kaboose.com-- I just changed a couple of things, but basically the costume idea is the same.

Home Made Spider Costume

Needed:
long sleeve black top/shirt
4 long black socks
newspaper, grocery bags, paper bags, or anything else you can use to stuff the socks with
a black knit cap
black yarn

Stuff each sock with paper or bags or filling of some sort.

Attach each sock to the side seams of the shirt (two socks on each side)
(I would suggest sewing the socks to securely attach them to the shirt, but duct tape can probably work as well.)

Next,  you will want to attach the black yarn in-between each sock and the cuffs of the shirt. This can be done in a couple of different ways. You can use the duct tape to attach a yarn piece at the cuff of the sleeve, and then tape the end of the yarn on t…

Make Your Own Strawberry Facial Scrub

Wondering what to do with summer strawberries that are getting soft and mushy? Instead of throwing them away, use them to make this awesome facial scrub that smells as good as it feels.

3-Ingredient Strawberry Facial Scrub

All you need are 2 strawberries, 1 tsp. honey and 1/4 cup sugar. That's it.

Blend the strawberries and yogurt together in a blender for a few minutes or until you get a smooth mixture. Then add the sugar slowly until you see a grainy pinkish paste.

Gently massage the strawberry paste on your face for a minute or so. Rinse with lukewarm water and pat your skin dry with a soft towel.

Strawberries contain salicylic acid - an ingredient used to fight acne and other skin blemishes. So while you are enjoying the sweet strawberry scent, you are helping your skin at the same time.

A new use for old strawberries.
