I used to make a pretty decent living working in the accounting department of a mortgage company. I was a single mom and was doing my part to bring home the thick-sliced, maple-brined bacon.
Then I got married and have five more kids and even though the kid I was raising with a single, greasy-from-bacon-fat-hand has now moved out and on, I still have those last five at home and they need bacon too.
And I don't want to be the one to have to leave my sofa to work for it, so I do what I can from here. My husband goes out and works hard every day and I earn Swagbucks.. Ridiculous sounding, I know.
But this last year, without even really trying, I collected enough Swagbucks to buy all this:
- Digital voice recorder
- (Used and outdated) Palm Pilot
- Laptop charger
- Some fancy deodorant
- A fancy razor (with extra blades)
- Three canisters of a chocolate-flavored meal replacement shake powder
- A canister of green superfood powder
- Some water soluble oil paint.
- 15 books
And I still have some leftover money in my Amazon account, too.
I'm not saying this justifies me not getting a Big Girl job, but it keeps me from having to spend money from my husband's Big Boy paycheck (which - these days - is not-so-big.
I use the Swagbucks search engine instead of Google (most times) and complete a poll or two - maybe check out the Swagbucks toolbar that I installed for a surprise code and next thing you know, I've earned enough Swagbucks to cash in for a gift card code at Amazon.
