Frugal Friday Finds

I’m always on the look out for frugal finds that we can actually use. Here are some that I’ve found lately that I think you would like too! If you have a fabulous frugal find, please leave a link in the comments 🙂

The Honest Co.

The Honest Company offers free discovery kits of their diapers, wipes and home essentials for the cost of shipping ($5.95). Once your receive your pack(s) you have 7 days to cancel your membership or they will ship a monthly supply at regular cost. The Honest Company’s baby care and cleaning products are derived from natural and organic ingredients and their disposable diapers are absorbent, eco-friendly, and uber cute. We are cloth diaper people but I like keeping a few sposies on hand for some sicknesses and emergency backups.

Nature Made VitaMelts

Target Sample Spot brings this fabulous little freebie. Nature Made’s VitaMelts are smooth melting and a tastier way to get your daily nutrients. Answer a short little questionnaire and your sample will be on it’s way to your door. On a side note, Target usually has great samples, you just have to watch for them and get them before they are gone!

All You Magazine

I love this magazine. I subscribe to this magazine (I am not some one who subscribes!). This magazine is so chock-full of high value coupons that you will wonder why you’ve never purchased it before. Now it is even better because you can get a $1.00 coupon for the Health & Wellness issue from coupons.com.

Scentsy Sale Month

This entire month is sale month for Scentsy! You can save on nearly everything in the catalog including any holiday items left (buy now for next Christmas!). AND they have a fabulous deal on solid perfumes (which I love – they last forever and are one of the few things that don’t irritate my skin).

A Nickle Here, A Penny There.

Most of you who know me personally, know that I’ve been working towards staying home and raising my children from before I even had my children. It has been a long process and unfortunately not finished just yet. One thing that has been getting me closer is trying out different things to earn money from home. With so many option out there (some bad, some good), I thought I would share what is working for me.

Inbox Dollars

Inbox Dollars pays cash for reading emails, taking surveys, watching videos, playing games and more. 90% of my time invested on this site is reading emails, 5% taking surveys and the other 5% taking advantage of some of the free offers. I know I would make more if I took advantage of the other  ways to make money with this site, but my time is valuable as well. Sticking mainly just to the emails, I was able to cash out ($30 minimum) within a month.

Paid Viewpoint

Paid Viewpoint is a survey site, but not the typical boring yawn inducing survey site. Surveys are typically short, enjoyable, and easily accomplished during nap time. Cash out is just $15, but it took me a little while longer to get there. You can take a survey each day (a trait survey) and based on those surveys you are offered biz surveys that pay more. Your goal is to reach a TraitScore of at least 9000, earning even more for each answer. You can also earn up to $25 for each referral.

Traditional Survey Sites

I also belong to Mindfield, Springboard America, MySurvey, MindsPay and a few other traditional survey sites. These sites can have great potential, but I find they also have more of the how much longer and will this ever end kind of surveys. Don’t get me wrong, I have earned money with them, but they also aren’t the ones I visit daily (more on a weekly basis).

Direct Sales

Who hasn’t been to a home party or even hosted a home party for a friend selling a great product? Direct sales can be a great way to earn money for necessities as well as for those extra treats. Most programs offer a commission scale, as well as promotions based on recruits, sales and events. Many programs exist, but you will have greater success if you chose one that you believe in, love the product and actually use the product. Personally, I chose Scentsy. I would love to talk to you about the products and the program so feel free to contact me 🙂

There are many, many more opportunities out there to make money at home from freelancing to crafts to marketing and more. I hope to try some out and let you know how they go. Do you have any tips you want share?
