My Family is a One Income Family as the title of this blog reflects. We try really hard to budget our money in order to have the things we do have as a One Income Family. I recently came across a Q & A Story on a blog that I regularly go to for saving tips and coupon match ups. Money Saving Mom. Crystal has a excellent site and I hope to one day have a site half as good as hers. If you have time and you would like to look through her site, she offers some great advice and steps on how to manage money, plan meals and use coupons at the grocery store! If you do not believe in coupons you should take the time to visit her site and become a believer.

Extra Money

Today I wanted to include some of the companies I have been taking surveys with. I have been with each company listed over a year and love the oppurtunities to make a little extra cash just by taking 5 to 20 minute surveys. I have even had the oppurtunity to test out products through these companies. If your interested in making a little extra cash I recommend looking at these companies.


Pinecone Research


Harris Poll Online

American Consumer Opinion



So I wanted to talk a little about one of the major websites I use to search through. I use swagbucks everyday to search and through this website you earn points that can be cashed out into several different gift cards or rewards. Its free and there is no gimmics. If you havent signed up I encourage you to do so and start racking up points to cash out for Christmas!!
Swagbucks is a fantastic way to stretch your budget! Use your earnings to treat yourself to Amazon Gift Cards, Starbucks gift certificates, or save up your points to contribute towards your Christmas list.

:: What is Swagbucks?
Basically it’s a site that allows you to earn great prizes such as iPhones, iPods, concert tickets, gift cards, and more just for using them to search the Internet. For example, an Amazon.com eGift card is only 450 Swag Bucks!

:: How do I sign up for Swagbucks?
It’s super easy! Just go to Swagbucks and fill out your information. You'll receive 30 points just for registering to get you started. After you've registered, read on to maximize your earnings potential.

:: Tips for maximizing your Swagbucks earnings:
Once you've registered with Swag Bucks, earning  is easy. Just follow the instructions below!

Perform these tasks every day:
  1. Install the Swagbucks toolbar. You'll earn points every day when you first open your browser just for having it installed!
  2. Click through the No Obligation Offers and get an instant Swag Bucks credit. Just indicate "No" or "Skip" or "See Next Offer" to offers that don't interest you.
  3. Take the Swagbucks daily poll to earn Swagbucks.
  4. Perform Internet searches using the Swagbucks site or toolbar throughout the day. You have a chance to earn with each search. 
Mega Swagbucks Friday:
  • Be sure to search on Fridays for the opportunity to win Swagbucks in larger-the-usual amounts. Win in amounts of 10, 20, 50 or even 100 Swagbucks!
Other ways to earn:
  • Follow Swagbucks on Twitter, Facebook, and the Swagbucks blog. They regularly offer limited-time only Swag Codes on each of these sites.
  • Watch the "From TSG" spot on the toolbar for notifications of limited Swag Codes. They may direct you to one of the sites above or you may find a code right in the notification. These usually expire within a few hours.
  • Invite your friends to join Swagbucks. You'll earn every time they search and win too!
  • Recycle cell phones, MP3 players, video games, and gaming consoles.
  • Shop through Swagbucks and earn SB on each purchase.
  • Send photos or videos of prizes redeemed through Swagbucks and earn up to 20 SB.
  • Contribute ideas for the daily poll and receive 100 SB if your poll is featured.
