Fun Ways To Make Money

I have been searching for some time now for a way to make some extra money. And I think that I finally found what I was looking for. And I have been having fun doing it.

The first and my favorite is an Iphone app called Field Agent. Now I know some of you are groaning about the Iphone. But for those of us that do have one, it's a great way to make some extra cash. I have only been using Field Agent for about three months and have already made $115.00. Not bad considering that each job takes about five minutes. Some take less time than that.

The next money maker is another app called WeReward. It is available for several types of phones not just the Iphone. You get paid for "checking in" as they call it. Some of the jobs remind me of scavenger hunts. For example there is currently a check in where you go to a best buy and locate a product, and then you take a picture of you holding the product with a store employee and it pays $5 bucks. And you are not even required to purchase the product. There are a few downsides to this app. Like most of the jobs only pay a nickel. But that is just simple jobs like taking a picture of the front of a store. And the other downside is that it keeps crashing. It crashes so much that it is rather frustrating I must admit. But nonetheless I have made some money with it. I have only been using it for about two weeks and have made only about $5.00. But I have had fun making it.

And last but not least is one that I have been using for a few years. It's not a get rich plan but you will make easy money. It's called Inbox Dollars. You get paid for reading emails. And in addition to that are opportunities to make money through simple things like using coupons when grocery shopping, or for shopping online through their site. And these are just a few of the ways to make money. I have made about $60.00 with this site. And like I said it won't make you rich, but you can make some money.

So if your looking for some fun ways to make a few extra bucks, check out these suggestions.....you might just be surprised at how easy it is to make the extra dough.

Hometown Favorites

I was searching for an interesting topic to write about this week, and I must admit that I found myself struggling. And then it hit me while I was sitting in my car waiting for my nephew to get out of school. I would write about some of my favorite things in my backyard.

I'm talking about places that are mom and pop shops. Now don't get me wrong, there are great things happening in the big franchises all across America. But I want to pay homage to some of the hardest working people, the small businessman. The men and women that go the extra mile to please their customers. A place where you know you can always get great service and it just feels like a little bit of home.

So, to start off the series is a restaurant around the corner from my home. One of those places that is set apart from the rest. A coney island named ISIS. It's located in Taylor, Michigan. And to say the least it is restaurant with great food, and very friendly employees. Quick service is another bonus when visiting this restaurant. Their drive thru window is convenient for those days when you just don't feel like getting out the car. It is definitely worth stopping in for breakfast, lunch or an early dinner.

The next time your in Metro Detroit, stop in at ISIS. Grab a quick breakfast or some I
lunch and sit back and enjoy. I am sure you will find it to be as nice as an experience as I have.

One more quick note: I tried to get a picture that was just right to go along with this post. But sadly the ones that I took did not turn out like I had thought I would. But I do promise to upload one as soon as I get it just right.
