It takes a village to make money from home!

What the heck am I talking about? A village? You thought the saying was "It takes a village to raise a child".

Yes - I've heard that too . . . and I agree (in many ways). And, come to think of it - THIS village could help you raise your child(ren) as well!

What I am talking about is a new way to make money from home. I know way too many moms who complain to me that they just wish they knew a way to make some extra money (even before our economy became so bad). Are you one of them? I know I am. Well . . . read on!

Do you hate watching the ads on tv, hearing them on the radio, etc?
What if you were paid to watch a few of them a day? What if you were paid when your friends watched a few of them a day (and their friends, and their friends, and their friends)? Hmm . . . I might just actually enjoy those commercial ads after all. I do enjoy the superbowl ones (usually) - and I'm not even getting paid to watch them!

So - here's the scoop . . .

Check out this quick 2 minute video to get a taste for what this is all about.

After your interest has been peaked - then watch the easy, fun and informative 12 minute presentation that explains it in more detail (the link is just above the 2 minute video. If you can't find it - let me know and I'll send you a link!). Trust me - it's way more fun than reading an FAQ page! :) And don't even try to tell me you don't have 2 minutes (or 12 minutes to watch it)! Umm . . . how many minutes have you spent today reading blogs, going on Facebook, checking your emails?? :) mmm-hmmm . . . I'm right there with you girl! :)

After you have checked it out - Let me know what you think! I love hearing people's opinions - and I also love new adventures (and making money from home while I take care of my kiddos!)!

Slashing your Grocery bills with Coupons!

Do you love to use coupons?

Think you know everything about using them?

Want to save more on your grocery bills?

I have to admit . . . I do pretty good at keeping our food budget low for a family of 7. I have used coupons for years (and even bought a course 18 years ago that helped me alot!). But I also have to admit that the last several years I have not used coupons the best that I could (out of laziness . . . and possibly some lack of knowledge).

Are you like me? What is your reason for not using coupons? Not really sure how to use them - or use them for your advantage (and not the company's - who is trying to get you to buy things you might not normally buy!)? Don't have access to any coupons? Don't want to take the time?

There is help!! :)

I never regretted spending money on a couponing course early in my marriage to help us make ends meet. Back then I only spent $20/week on groceries for the 2 of us (though - I think in those college years we were lovin the Top Ramen and Kool Aid still!). Now, if you factor in the increase in prices - I'm probably spending a similar amount per person in our family, maybe just a little more. But if I worked coupons even better - there may be extra money to save for a cruise or something fun . . . . hmm . . . I think I'm getting inspired!

Let me know what you think about it!
