FindFocusGroups.com: Get Paid For Your Opinions



Looking for ways to earn extra money to help build your savings account or to help pay some bills? Check out FindFocusGroups.com, where you will get paid for participating in legitimate focus groups conducted by various marketing companies.

From the website:
 "Our team gathers focus groups from around the web and works directly with some of the top market research firms to bring you legitimate paid focus group opportunities.
 Since we started in 2006, we have listed over 27,500 legitimate focus group opportunities and worked with virtually every market research firm in the United States. FindFocusGroups has been featured on: The Today Show, Women's Health, Reader's Digest, CNN.com, and Careerbuilder.com!"

FindFocusGroups.com researches and lists hundreds of legitimate focus groups that are looking for participants. You can search for focus groups and research studies coming up in your city, and apply to the ones that interest you. It may take a few steps to determine if you qualify, but if you have some extra time to spare, and apply for different studies, it can increase your chances of qualifying for one or more.

When you do qualify for a focus group, you will be paid a pre-determined amount after completing the study. Some surveys may be completed online, while other research/marketing focus groups will be held at designated locations. How much you get paid and the method of payment will vary according to the company conducting the study. But just by browsing the site, it looks like most surveys are paying between $10-$200.

It is definitely worth bookmarking this site and checking back often as they post about 25 and 45 new focus group studies every weekday, with most being added on Mondays.

A word of caution: even though the company is committed to posting only researched, verified and legitimate paying surveys, they warn that you should never give your Social Security number or bank account number to anyone claiming to be doing market research. They also advise users to use their best judgment when they give out information, sharing only information that you are comfortable giving.

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…

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…
