Monthly Earnings- January 2009

In spite of the economic downturn I have still been able to earn some extra money this month. January has taught me that it does pay to mail in rebate forms. I mailed in about 10 of them and received 3 back so far.

Applying for rebates has even created a small job for my 15 year old. She is my official Rebate Processor. She earns 50% commission for every completely processed rebate.

Here are my earning from this month: (Not bad for a stay at home mom)

$6~Pine Cone Research
$96.01~Izea (PayPerPost & Social Spark)
$10~Ebates* (please use as your referrer when signing up)
$1.67~Adsense (Current balance $37…need $100 to cashout)
$10~Walmart GC (Rebate)
$2.99~Arm & Hammer (Rebate)
$15.oo~Oil of Olay GC (Rebate)
$5.00~Store Credit

*Ebates $5 Bonus Offer: All new Ebates accounts earn $5 for signing up, which is credited 2-3 days after you make your first purchase. I’ll earn $5 when you sign up and you’ll earn $5 for every person you refer as well.

All of my cash earnings are divided up as follows… 10% Tithe, 70% Savings and 20% Spending. All GC’s are used for CVS OOP and rebate offers.

For the month of February, I have been contemplating teaching a “Coupon-ing Crash Course”. I have been asked by several people and with the support of my two best friends (my husband and my daughter) I think that it may ne a good idea.

Each class would last roughly 2 hours and cost $10 per person. Each person will get a “Coupon 101 Handbook” to take home. I would like to have the first class at my home with some of the woman from my church who have expresed intrest.

I would also like to teach an additional class for many people I meet at the supermarket who ask me “How did you do that?”. “That” being, reducing my OOP using coupons and shopping sales. Thus far, I usualy give strangers my blog address but I’d like to begin taking a more hands on approach.

I‘d like to know what you…(my friends and readers)…think of this idea?
If a coupon~ing class were available in your community,would you would pay to attend?

She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.
