I have been a stay at home mom for almost 8 years. At first, I did lots of refunds, shopped with coupons to save on my grocery budget, sold extra coupons and filled out surveys for a few extra dollars. 2 1/2 years ago, I found a work from home job working for a Dr office. It gave me the extra money I was looking for without having to put my kids in daycare. This was the answer to my dreams.. still be home with my kids but have a small income. BUT... if I found this job... could I find more ways to make a few extra dollars? I love having extra money so that we can take a vacation from time to time and I can shop for nice things from time to time.
I started blogging over a year ago just because I wanted to share the great deals I found with some of my friends. As time went by, I actually was able to create a pretty good blog following. The wheels got rolling... maybe I could make money from my blog too!! I search for ways to do this. One way I found was here.... get paid to blog. I signed up a long time ago but never really did anything with it. A few weeks ago, my friend Stacy sent the link to me again. It got me thinking that maybe I should check out Pay per Post to see if I could really make money. I have read other blogs that used get paid to blog and it looked simple. So.. here I am giving it a shot. If you are a blogger, why not try it out. Who can't use a few extra bucks each month? Click here get paid to blog and at least look at the opportunities they have for you.
This sure does beat picking up aluminum cans or delivering phone books for a few extra bucks!!! Trust me, I know! I have done them both!!

Work It, Mom! A Community for Working Moms - I am making this soup today. The only things I had to buy in order to make it were the sausage (I used sausage patties), chicken broth and diced tomatoes. The rest of the stuff I either has or improvised. We grew and dried black beans last summer so I added them instead of kidney beans and I did not buy any new spices... just added what I had along with some Mrs Dash from Bzz campaign I did a few months ago. I will let you know how it is!

I have a 2 more holders that stays at home where I can organize into categories. One is as big as a shoe box. At one time I was the coupon exchange coordinator for a small refund newsletter so I had tons of coupons on hand. I no longer use this one but I save it in case I ever get that involved again. The other one was where I organized my personal coupons into categories so I could find what I needed easily. This one has been pretty sad the last year... almost empty!
When my DD was born, I got very involved in coupons and refunds as a way to keep myself busy while on maternity leave. One day during this time, I was shopping at Rite aid with my big personal coupon organizer that, in addition to cents off coupons, also held over $100 worth of free items coupons. Later that night I realized I lost my coupon organizer and Rite aid was already closed. That coupon file was worth a lot of money and could really hurt my already tight budget at the time. I was sick to my stomach and barely slept that night. The next morning, I was up early and at the store when it opened. Imagine how surprised I was to find my coupon file setting on a shelf where I had left it while looking at something. I grabbed it and ran home. I was so happy to see it again and even happier to see no one had even touched it. That was a close call!! From them on I made sure there was a piece of paper in it with my name address and phone number in case it was lost and then found by a kind person!
While I was looking for my coupon file on Amazon I found this one on wheels. I was thinking how funny it would be to wheel this into a CVS on a Sunday morning ready to earn some ECB!! The coupon cop manager at my CVS would probably have a heart attack at the site!! LOL

I also made a large lasagna for dinner last night. Here is the break down on what I spent to make it......
1 jar of barilla sauce - free after coupon
2 cans of sauce - 85 cents each
large container of ricotta cheese - $3.09
1 pound of hamburger - no idea (i pulled it from my stash in the freezer)
4 bags of shredded cheese $7.00
Total = $11.79
Not bad for such a large pan that will feed us for 2 dinners and i will freeze some for lunches. I also added some carrot puree to the sauce and meat combo to make it healthier. The carrots were left over from a holiday party and would have gone bad had I not pureed them so I did not add the cost. I had a some sauce and meat mixture left over so I froze that to use later.

This is a great time of year to list a few things on freecycle that you no longer want. Many have made new year's resolutions to lead a "greener" life.... free cycle is a great way to start. By using freecycle, you keep things out of garbage dumps. I have a few things I need to list. There are a few things I am always looking for on freecycle too. Old barn wood is one of them!!
