Frugal Shopper

Ciao Tutti,
I have been doing some research on saving especially when your money comes is sporadically like mine and, I don't have a set income each month. I'm still building up Amazon and, working on my ebooks. I thought with the holidays coming up this would be a perfect time to start saving big time! I have a few holiday meals that I will testing off of Pinterest in the next three as, I anticipate Christmas. You many not celebrate Christmas like I do but, maybe want some holiday yummy recipes that are inexpensive. There are 20 appetizers, sides, main courses, and desserts that I am going to be making on a very tight budget. Now I already planned ahead a bit and bought a bit in bulk for my cashews, dates, nutritional yeast and, mixed dried fruits. I figured these would be the most expensive items to acquire. I think I have spent about $100 for all these products. I am giving myself a $300 which means I only have $200 left. I am going test all of these Pinterest recipes to see if they make the cut while staying on budget. This is going to be a challenge but, I am thrilled. I will have all my grocery bills on here as well as, all of the foods that I am attempting to make. I am very excited! Stay updated with my Frugal shopper posts by subscribing and, being part of the email alerts from my blog; you will get emailed every-time I post a new blog! You will never miss a post. Let the holiday festivities begin!
Have an enlightening and adventurous day,

Ciao Tutti,
Another week , another job and, probably another bill unpaid or another $ added to the credit card. Well, I may not be knee deep in debt but, I do have a goal of making $1,000-$10,000 a month. $10,000 goal is high but, it is still a goal I will try to pursue.  I really enjoy Pinterest I always search for new ways to make money at home.  Since I am already working from home I wanted to add a few extra hours to my day by finding a side or, full-time job. While searching on Pinterest I found a few options and, one of them really spoke to me. I signed up to be a test reviewer for websites. Making $10 an hour for testing websites is a great side job for me as, I am used to talking to a recording from YouTube. I also, have some experience from Freelance jobs. If I am able to have two side jobs along with my other jobs that will keep me a great income.
I have tested the site and, in fact they do give jobs right away so, I'm well on my way to earning that extra dough. I am currently in the middle of testing out a radio station with perks, writing for greeting cards, and, selling my junk mail. I will eventually test quite a few more so, I give you all some fun jobs that are lucrative for you to do as a side or, full time job.
Have an enlightening and adventurous day,
allie
