Not too many new apps, so this will be a short post.
I am constantly on the lookout for more money making apps and I think I've found a few more. Please keep in mind I am still testing out all of my apps, and if anything changes I will let you know!
Job Spotter (android)- Seems easy enough to make a little extra cash here! Pretty much all you do is find "Help Wanted" signs posted in the windows of stores around you. For every 100 points you earn you get $1 Amazon gift card. Simple! There is even an ongoing competition for sending in the most "Help Wanted" signs. First place gets $300! (But it's hard to achieve, the top person right now has 29800 points.
Fiverr (android, ios)- I used to use this site all the time when it first appeared on the internet. I stopped using it because the site got very flooded and the amount of effort needed to make $5 was ridiculous. Thankfully it seems now that things have leveled out a bit, and making some money seems promising again. I haven't decided yet what I would like to sell on there yet, but as soon as I do I'll post it here.
I'm also starting to dislike Swagbucks again. The amount of time and effort you have to put in to get anything in return is ridiculous! I'm not saying I'm ready to give it up again just yet... But if I had a real job, I would not be wasting my time doing their annoying tasks for less than a penny.
Come back again Friday when I give you my tips and tricks to hosting a lucrative garage sale!
It's Monday! Time for the review of how I did with my money-making apps.

As you have all probably figured out by now I don't like putting much effort into things. Not saying I won't put in forth any effort ever, I will if I need to, I just don't like to. And in some ways that ends up being a good thing, because I usually end up figuring out the "lazy way" of getting things done. But back to the topic at hand. I hate making goals.We were taught about goals back in grade school. Our teachers tried to instill the importance of setting a goal and following it as best as possible. I'm not sure if I just never grasped the concept, or if I always aimed much too high, but I always failed. Every goal I made always made me feel like I was a terrible person for not being able to finish my goals. So I stopped trying. Until today! I've decided to give this goal thing another shot. So let's break down goal making to it's simplest form.... What do you want? Now I don't mean in a daydream kind of way, I'm talking realistically. Because, sure, everyone wants to make a million dollars in a year, but is everyone? No probably not. So what do you realistically want. For me it's comfort, a safety net. To be more specific, I would like to save away $50,000 over a period of 10 years. Why $50,000 and why 10 years? Well to me $50k that feels like a good start to a solid retirement and a big safety net if things fall apart. 10 years makes that number realistic and obtainable. So that's my goal. So let's break it down just a bit more, I promise, I'm too lazy to make this extremely complicated! So in order to save $50k I would need to put away about $15 a day over the course of 10 years (or around $450 a month) *(Yes, I know my math isn't spot on, I'm too lazy to work with exacts.) Somehow I have to rake in an extra $450 a month, without having a regular job. (The cost of childcare would pretty much kill anything I would want to save away, so to me it's pointless) How can one person make $450 a month without actually getting a job? Start a blog! Yes, I know I won't make $450 a month right away, but trust me this is the way to start. I have read so many blogs from so many different people saying that blogging is the way they're able to save any money away. So between this blog and the silly apps I've been using on my phone I feel confident and I have a wonderful start to my goal. It might be a few years before I can say I'm hitting my goal of putting away $15 a day, but at least I've started!
