From there, Google will give you a unique code that you will paste onto your website. Google takes it from there, tracking your page views, traffic, and earnings on your behalf.

Financial Fitness February: Day 13

Moore Income
Today was a tiring day for me, mostly because I didn't get a lot of sleep last night, however, financially speaking things went pretty well today. 1.) Sourcing Discontinued Items Although, I am trying to slow down my sourcing and focus more on listing, there were two stores that I still wanted to check out. Ace Hardware & The Home Depot I was able to get around to all 3 Ace Hardware stores in town today but only scored big at one and then got 3 of one profitable item at another. The...Read More...

Hi everyone, Happy Valentine’s Day! Anyone have any fun plans to share? I’m curious to know if you’ve planned something budget-friendly. :) In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d highlight some relationship-related threads. Whether it’s a spouse, family member or friend, our relationships have a lot of say-so in how we manage our money. We’d love to get your perspective on these threads: This single Penny Hoarder feels uncomfortable with not having someone to bounce her financial...Read More...
@Moore Income You're a good husband Jon. It's always best when both spouses are on the same page with all spending. It's great to me that you put thought into your wife's gift. In this case, flowers or candy would have been a thoughtless gift and wasted money. My brother in law is horrible to his wife all year long, but ALWAYS buys her flowers on Valentine's Day. If I was her, I'd tell him give me the money and save up for a divorce. My husband is great to me all year long and I get an extra...Read More...
I am subscribed to your newsletter and read it almost every day or soon after! I appreciate that they are rather short, address specific topics and offer links to read further on topics that interest me! We celebrated Valentine's Day with a hug and a kiss, and promised each other we would not let even Hallmark earn a profit off us yesterday! That is one minor way where financial compatibility in a relationship works well! He did help me move some furniture around, and I moved my PC and some...Read More...

How I save money on pest control

Forum: Save Money
Elon Must Save
Pest control can be so expensive. I have seen prices from $99 to $130 for quarterly treatments. Bugs are annoying but that is a high cost to get rid of them. I recently found and started using a more affordable option. The company is called pestie.com and it's so much more affordable and so far its worked great. Hope this helps!Read More...

Financial Fitness February: Day 12

Most of the day was spent at home today due to the -15 degree weather with heavy winds. Because of that, not a lot happened financially today. 1.) Another Day of NO SPENDING! Sort of... I didn't even spend anything on my business today which is fairly unique. As I mentioned, we had bad weather today so my wife was off work and I did not leave the house except in the evening when we went to church. The reason I say sort of is because their was money spent today but I will explain more in the...Read More...

Is there Really a way to make MONEY ONLINE?

Forum: Make Money
BearWarrior
Greetings, I have tried several different PROMISES" about making Money online and most the time it's just a con-game where they make Money off of you and then get Ripped Off ! So my Question are there any "REAL PROGRAMS" out there where Money can be made and I would appreciate Proof; Im tired of having my Money "STOLEN" !!! Sincerely, BradyRead More...
Hi @BearWarrior , It depends on what you're trying to accomplish. There is no 'get rich quick' scheme out there except for the scammers. There are ways to make money online, but you're only talking a few bucks a day. Unless you find a work from home job, you're not going to make a steady income. There are options such as online surveys, selling online through eBay/amazon/Etsy/etc, freelance online jobs such as translating or freelance writing. NONE of these require any money sent to anyone...Read More...

Forum: Save Money

Ok, everyone, I know the subject line might sound unrealistic but it's true. Also just a heads up this might not work for everyone but it did for me and my wife. October of 2018 we went on a trip to Maui Hawaii for $1500 total for 2 people. Here is how we did it. The Flights I saved up airline vouches by taking the later flight. I used to work for a company that had to fly me around twice a year. I needed to be at my office the next morning but they would always put me on the 5:00 pm flights...Read More...

My Money Saving Gadget

Forum: Save Money
Frustration with the price of a new Verizon Smart Phone to replace my old faltering phone led me back to TracFone, the provider of my old emergency flip phone. TracFone was running a special on a Samsung Crow J7 with a larger screen then my previous phone for less then $100.00! This beats the $1000.00 and up I was quoted by Verizon. TracFone also beat the $150.00/monthly bill that would have gone to $200.00/month with a new phone purchase via Verizon. Credit on the new phone was also given...Read More...

Oh Yeah! What you have saved for an emergency backup fund may not be enough of a cushion. But you are retired now on Social Security! T.P.H. articles on Side Gigs are great but now info is needed for careful planning when juggling Social Security, the IRS, and State income tax such as New Mexico. Could really use help in this area.Read More...

Not gonna lie, the days seem to be going by faster and faster and it seems like I never have enough time to get things done. I know I need to work a lot on my time management skills especially since next month I will be returning part time to my former job as a digital marketer for a promotional products company. Financially, here is what happened today: 1.) Sourced a Bit More I decided to check back in at Bed Bath & Beyond to see if they were still running their Red Dot Clearance event.Read More...

@mooreincome has inspired me to look into doing some reselling online. I actually have a very decent camera (a Canon DSLR with interchangeable lenses). So all I need to start is sourcing material to sell. I live down the street from a Salvation Army, so I'm going to start there. Also, there are some Goodwill Boutiques in my area as well (higher end Goodwills), so I'm going to take a look at those as well. My wins for today: I received a $49 refund check back from Chase.

Ok, I must be confusing Amazon with ebay on the gating. Thanks Jeremy and Jon for setting me straight on that! I was getting all my ducks in a row to reopen my etsy shops and my ebay account last Fall, when I stumbled into the new sales tax mess. I realize ebay and etsy are collecting the sales tax now, but there are still some major issues.......the 1099s (which I won't likely qualify to receive due to slow sales when I restart my shops) are lumping all kinds of fees and taxes together...Read More...

Flood claim?

Forum: Insurance
Jobelle Collie
I have flood insurance, even though I’m not in a flood zone. Yesterday, we got 4 inches of rain in less than one hour! The house next door is vacant. The landlord closed off their French Drain, so that house probably has water in it. Because my French Drain was just keeping up with the deluge, it was overwhelmed when my neighbors excess water began flooding into my kitchen and living room. The insurance adjuster will be here in the morning to figure out my next move. I’ve never made a flood...Read More...

I have searched for this answer on several sites and not had any luck. You all are awesome with good, honest and timely answers so I know this is the place to find out my answer. Most people ask about saving for retirement questions about how much money they need to retire and live comfortably because when they retire so does their income they are accustomed to living on. Since most people will not make 100% of their normal monthly income, they need to know " How much money do I need in...Read More...

Normally, Day 10 would be a third of the way through a month, but since it's February, the month is going by much faster it seems. Good thing we get an extra day this month! Here's my wins for the day: 1.) Listed 10 New Items On eBay As a reseller, it can be really easy to get so involved with sourcing (my favorite part) that we fail to do our duty to list the items we source. While you gotta have good products to sell, it does no good if they just sit in your storage. Unfortunately, a lot...Read More...

Hard to believe a whole week of this month has already past! Time really does fly by when your having fun! Let's get into this day of finances. 1.) Delivering for Extra Cash Today I decided to focus mostly on doing some grocery and food delivery. The thing I love about all the apps that allow you to do this, is the fact that it gives you so much freedom to work on your own schedule. For example, I worked in the morning but then I needed to go home for a while and get an order ready to ship.Read More...
Glad you found him helpful. @Olivia He is very transparent, real and just a great person in general. He is also very approachable and friendly every time I interact with him. He is on Instagram as well so I will sometimes chat with him about things related to reselling or just about some his interests like The Office, etc.Read More...

How Frugal Are You? Easy test!

What is the smallest amount that you will stop to pick up? ...a penny? a nickel? a dime? a quarter? a dollar? My husband and I will stop to pick up a penny.

Careful though, I was in a parking lot and saw where someone had dropped a quarter and a nickel. I was so excited (yes, I can be that frugal) I stopped to pick it up and...Read More...
