I want to buy a car with survey earnings!

Yes, this is going to sound mad perhaps but I want to buy a car with survey earnings! The last couple of years have been fantastic for me, from a financial point of view. I’m always a fan of fitting in a little bit of everything but some of my survey websites have slid a little. I haven’t found as much time as I could have, even for the best paying surveys. In the last month I have returned to dedicating just 1-2 hours a week to the decent surveys. Also the odd 5 or 10 minutes on my mobile, while my daughter sleeps on me as well. Anyway – I’ve said it now – I want to buy a car with survey earnings!

Simply Swim review – Costumes for the whole family

Our family is fortunate in that we get to enjoy lots of nice holidays together. This year we will go on no less than 5 holidays. This is lovely for us, particularly as we don’t have to pay for all of them! By sharing the cost with family and friends we are able to enjoy wonderful holidays to Centerparcs, and other nice places, without breaking the bank. As new parents this is fantastic for us and really helps out the family coffers. As well as enjoying holidays my daughter and I attend Waterbabies swimming lessons each week too.

The Money Shed Moneymaking bootcamp recap

I’m a fan of money – isn’t everyone?! Anyway, over the last 4 years I have found a variety of different ways to make money online. For me diversity is key. I like to know that if one of my revenue streams disappears that I will have lots more. Some people focus solely on passive income, which is great, but I’m someone who also enjoys working to make money. During the month of January I ran a moneymaking bootcamp over on The Money Shed. The Money Shed is a UK based forum that has a great community feel about it. Everyone there wants to make money and save money too. There is a great group of people that want to help one another, share websites, post some referral links and generally just help one another.
