3 Free Sites that Can Help you Make Money Today

Fall 2017 Update:
Still paying? What's Still Worth it?

Fast Money: The 2 sites that I still use and earn on are #1(Scout Books) and #3 (Savvy) on this list. You will get paid much quicker and much faster with those 2 sites. Find your old books and go to site number 1 to start selling them ASAP. This site pays!

Savvy will also pay you a buck for every referral you send their way that signs up!

There is no reason to be broke period. It’s all a matter of perspective! If what you think about and what you focus on, create your life. Then, that’s the first step. Let’s get into a “what I want mindset” and check the loser talk!

Life is all a matter of perspective:
Start Scouting:

Sometimes you just need to physically move into the direction of your dreams so if you want to make money, I’ll give you three easy sites that you can join or work with today to help you earn.

  1. Scout Books: Most of us have old books laying around the house that we no longer need or want. Go to this site, start entering your ISBN numbers (found on the back or inside of the book) and get rid of the junk. Get rid of the stuff that is laying around your house and start selling it. This site will provide you with book buyers who will pay you and pay for the shipping of the books (to them).

Embrace a new mindset: Abundance is yours for
the taking: Vin-dale

  1. Vin-dale: Join this site and go first to the profile section and complete it. You will earn $2 for this task but you are also creating your income stream; this is how you will be matched for surveys, questionnaires and studies. Use real information so that you will be pre-qualified for the studies that actually match your life. You will also need to enter your real e-mail so that they can send you surveys. You will also need paypal or a real address so that they can pay you. It's simple, be real and get paid! Next check out the blog section and look around. Find the daily question and answer it. It shouldn’t take you more than 2-5 minutes. Give a thoughtful, witty, funny or insightful response and you will probably win 50 cents (not much, but it’s a start and it will grow). When you peruse through the blog, you will see the many ways that people are making money (there are a whole host of ways that you can do it and there’s no reason why you cannot make $50- $100 this week, especially if you are not currently working, busy or in school. Even if you are, if you want this, you CAN achieve this!

Detailed information about how to earn with Vindale can be accessed here:

The only real scarcity is in the limitation of your thinking.
Think big: Get Savvy:
  1. Savvy: There are 2 main ways to earn on this site. The first is signing up with the link to do surveys which once again, I want to reiterate, using your real personal information, so that you can begin to receive your surveys by e-mail (and so that you can get paid--- Savvy pays by sending you real checks in the mail). The second way is truly passive. You sign up for SavvyConnect where you download a small software on your phone, tablet or computer and allow it to conduct behavioral research to see where you spend your time online. I have used Savvy and another site to do this and they pay handsomely. On Savvy, for your first period, you can earn $60 and it also enables you to get paid faster. You can join SavvyConnect at anytime and also cancel it and remove it from your computer.

You do not have to join SavvyConnect to join Savvy. It is just another possibility for earning.

All 3 of these sites will have you earning money today! So, let’s go, get started!

How to Get Paid with Vindale Research!

Take Action and Join Today

UPDATE 12/24/2015

Two latest training posts:

1) Vindale Questions (My Most Frequently Asked Questions):

2) Vindale Referrals (No Deadheads): Vindale only pays for Active Referrals.

UPDATE 12/15/2015:

Look at this wonderful gem that I found online. Here is a company walk-through of the homepage on Vindale. Hope it helps! Shout out to all of those who got paid today! Congrats!

UPDATE 11/2015:  Reward Codes:

Look for the reward code tab at the top of the page.

Vindale has now added reward codes (which are familiar to swag codes, if you know about how those work). They are strings of text that you will be able to find on social media sites (or check the blog). They will only be good for a specific period of time so you will need to act on them fast! 

The locations to find the reward codes will be:

--Vindale blog (

Make sure to add them across your social platforms!

There is a tab on the top of the page that says, "Reward Codes." When you click it, a box should drop down and you should be able to paste the code there for credit. Don't miss out on this FREE money and remember they are only good for a limited time!

UPDATE 11/2015: Expansion

Vindale has expanded to now include the UK,  Canada and Australia!

Vindale is a market research company so it offers both surveys and more lucrative studies as opportunities for you to get paid. Their unique position in the market place is that they will also pay you for many other things and it is those things that will help you make an extra $50, $100 or $150 each and every month. 

Are you willing to work for 30 minutes or an hour a day for some extra cash? If you are, you can begin to earn with Vindale! You can pick and choose what you want to do and it will have a direct effect on how much or how little you earn. One thing is for certain, you have to take action, you have to begin to do something!!! The more time and energy you commit, the more success you will have. It's as simple as that!

The first thing you need to do is sign-up:

Tip: Use real information!!!

Make sure to provide your REAL e-mail address because you will receive survey and study invites via your inbox. You can check the site as well for surveys but you will be notified daily of new opportunities. It’s free and no one will EVER ask you for a credit card. Also, if you choose to get paid via paypal, they need your real paypal/e-mail address to pay you! If you prefer to get a check in the mail, they need your REAL information to send you a check!

Next, complete your profile and you will earn $2 for just doing that!

Now, you’re off to a great start! To further accelerate your progress, check the blog posts daily (or as much as you can), you can earn 50 cents a day for answering the daily blog post question. Mind you, Vindale picks 20 of their favorite answers but you’ll have a good chance of winning and can expect to win at least 50-70% of the time.

Tip: The key is providing thoughtful, witty or insightful answers!

Now 50 cents doesn’t seem like much but it adds up pretty quickly!

Need a break or want a quick visual? 
Here's a quick video I created to help introduce you to the site!

UPDATE: 6/2016: My 2 videos below have been removed because I used actual footage from the Vindale site, creating a copyright conflict......Sorry Vindale!

Vindale will often run photo and caption contests.

For the budding photographer. You can gain $10 if you win the photo contest that is run at least once a month.

If you’re a wordsmith, have fun and enter the caption contests, where you can add your two cents for $1. There is at least one caption challenge a month but if you check in on the site often, they may offer them more frequently.
Vindale Polling: $2
You can also earn $2 a month for nailing the monthly polls. These polls are easy. Have fun and you'll find yourself winning this money quite often! I know because I've won it numerous times!

Send in a Pic! $5
Just got paid? Take a quick selfie of yourself with a copy of your check or your paypal account (showing your payment) and Vindale will send you $5 for that!

Member of the Month: $5
 Every month, Vindale selects a member to profile every month and that yields another $5.

Referrals: $5 
Vindale will pay you for every person that you refer to Vindale that joins AND completes one survey or study. Although, I love getting paid for referrals, I mean, who wouldn’t, I don’t put all of my eggs in this basket because it’s dependent on other people doing some work. Many people join, but many less get serious and complete at least one survey. I’m not sure why this is, but it happens. I’m just glad that all of my money is not dependent on this. Now, for the flip, I also have many friends who LOVE Vindale and work it in their spare time and see the value of an extra $50, $100 or even $150 extra every month!

I have benefitted from most of these extra ways to earn. I’ve been a member of the month. I’ve sent in a picture of myself holding a check! I’ve won blog answers, polls and captions. I have earned for sending referrals (and that’s why it’s important to explain the site and help your referrals)! Now, I say this to you---not to boast---but to let you know that all of these things are very DOABLE in your spare time while sitting on your couch and watching tv. It does not require any major expense of extra time on your part!

It is clear to see how all of these extras plus doing a few surveys will help you earn at least $50- $100 extra every month. If you have questions or concerns, please go ahead and ask in the comments and I’m happy to help you every step of the way!

UPDATE: 6/2016--Video removed due to copyright conflict (I used actual footage from the site).

Minimizing and Making Money- Yes You Can!


In a previous post, I wrote about decluttering and earning at the same time and today, with my 100th post (yay, me....LOL), I would like to continue on that path and talk about how you can reduce the clutter of no longer wanted or needed items in your home and make money.

There is a great site called BookScouter that allows you to price search any and all of your books to see if any companies are buying them. You can check by entering an ISBN number (found on the back of your books) on their website. It will immediately pull up all kinds of booksellers who are possible buyers for your book. It will also include the price that they are willing to pay for your book. Personally, I've sold many non-fiction, text, political and history books on this site. Instead of just keeping books for the sake of keeping them, how about cashing them in and only keeping the ones that you truly love?

I am a believer that your home should reflect you and your family, not just become a hodge-podge of everything that you have ever experienced, seen or heard in your life. Many things come our way but that doesn't mean that they are meant to stay there.

First, check out my earlier post for an easy round of decluttering:

Then, head over to BookScouter for your next round!

I would love to hear how everything works out for you in the comments!

Can you minimize, declutter and make money at the same time?

Wayne Dyer: The Seven Faces of Intention

 According to Wayne Dyer and his wonderful book, The Power of Intention, there are 7 faces of intention which includes:
    1. Creativity: We were made by a Power, so infinite, so great and so creative that all things emanate from that Source. The creative spirit that made you is also IN you. 
    2. Courtesy: Dan

      You were born to create!
    3. Kindness: "Kindness extended, received or observed" is beneficial to both the receiver and the giver.
    4. Love: That which "encourages, enhances and support all of Life."
    5. Beauty: "The face of beauty is always present, even where others see non-beauty."
    6. Expansion: "Life continually expands toward more life."
    7. Unlimited Abundance: We were created from a boundless, limitless being. There are no limits to our minds or our potential.
    8. Receptivity: Say yes to your connection to the Universal Source that created you. Live in harmony knowing that as you are here to give, you can also live in a magnanimous state of receiving. 
If we focus our minds and hearts in this way, Dyer believed that we are able to not only live limitlessly but also co-create the life that we have always desired.....

What area of intention can you seek to dwell on today? 
I invite you to share your point of view in the comments.....
