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

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, 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. 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 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.

Go to and check it out for yourself!!

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!

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 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 I just changed a couple of things, but basically the costume idea is the same.

Home Made Spider Costume

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…

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
Put back one item from your grocery cart each time you shop--and save the co…
