I cashed out of one of the survey sites I’ve been using, Surveyhead, which will add $26.50 to my savings! You receive $5 just for joining; I did 10 surveys, and they take a few weeks to clear, so this is money earned in December that I’m cashing out today. It should hit my Paypal account soon.
Also, I’ve done three mystery shops this week and anticipate receiving $32.76 from them in the coming weeks, including reimbursements. I’ve spent $7.76 out of pocket, so I’ll have made $25, plus a free lunch, brake inspection, and Valentine’s day cards.
I’m also waiting on $17.00 in mailed in rebates.
So although I’m not adding much on a day to day basis to the savings, I am doing the work that will go into building the savings up, and the total is steadily climbing. I’m on my way out to crush cans for the recycling center this afternoon, and I’m almost ready to take in January’s saved quarters (and dimes, nickels, and pennies) to add to the pot. Small amounts add up!
