What is all the chatter about Swagbucks??

 If you haven't heard of SwagBucks you are missing out! I am going to let you in on how I have made $30 in two months!! I believe that one of my "jobs" as a stay-at-home mom is to save us money. SwagBucks is doing that for us!

Search & Win is an online portal dedicated to helping you earn digital dollars called "Swag Bucks", which can be redeemed for exclusive merchandise. In everyday terms, you can use their website and toolbar to earn SwagBucks that you can redeem for merchandise. I prefer their $5 Amazon Gift Card. I am currently saving them towards a Wii for our family.

So, how does it all work? Here are a few things you can do to earn Swag Bucks every day! All of these are under the "Earn" tab.
1. Daily Polls- answer the poll question for 1 SB (swag buck).
2. NOSO- No Obligation Special Offers- Simply click through the offers and sign up for what you want or skip through all of them and get 2 SB.
3. Invite- Invite someone through Facebook or your email and get 1 SB.
4. Trusted Survey- Once you fill out your initial profile information, just click on "trusted survey" to get 1 SB.
5. Toolbar- Use the toolbar and get 1SB.

You can also do the following to rack up those SB!
1. Search and win- Use the toolbar or search bar on the homepage. You will randomly win SB.
*Friday's are MegaBucks day where you have a bigger chance of getting higher SB. Instead of 8 SB when you search, you may get 24SB or 59SB.
2. Fill out surveys.
3. Watch videos/commercials that will show up periodically on the homepage.
4. Referral- Refer other people and when they search and win, you get the matching points.
5. SBTV- Swagbucks TV- Watch 10 videos that are around 2 min long each to get 3 SB.
6. Swagcodes- Most days there are swag codes that LoOKliKeThiS that you put in the GIMME box on the homepage. Sometimes they are on the blog, twitter, facebook page, etc.

So, for example, a GiftCard from Amazon for $5 is 450 SB.

Are you ready to cash in on this? Ready to spend a little time to save up for some Christmas presents?
Here is your chance. Click on the image below. Please make sure to not click off the link or do anything else or it won't properly link as my referral. Make sure when you refer people that you let them know that as well!

Search & Win

If you sign up, please comment and let me know what made you want to sign up and how you plan to use your SwagBucks!! I would love to know.

As a special bonus if you enter "JuneBoom" in the code when you sign up, you will get an extra 50 SB and that is on top of the 30 SB you get for signing up!

Mr. M is always creative but he was a little perplexed when asked to make a Pregnant belly cake. Despite the challenge, he still delivered!

I am so proud of my awesome hubby!!

Long time, no see....

My little one is 10 days shy of being 5 months old and I just now feel like I can take a minute to re-enter blog land! I missed you guys!! I have been lurking around occasionally reading some of your blogs and some of my favorites, but it just isn't the same! I just finished a huge sewing feat and am so motivated to get back in the groove of things.
There are some fun things in store! Some things I plan to blog about soon are.... (drum roll please)
  • Making baby bedding- I made my second set of crib bedding and can't wait to show it off!
  • Couponing- Being a SAHM means I need to save us money and couponing helps. I will be sharing some of my secrets or at least the sites that taught me all I know!
  • Diet- We (Mr. M & I) are taking part in the Metabolic Research Center's programs. I am on a special one for Breastfeeding moms. So far (in 10 days) I am down 5.5 lb, Mr. M has lost 10!! I will be sharing some diet tips and some humor about not being able to indulge! 
  • Jorja- of can I not blog about my little one?!?! 
  • Money makers- I have become a big fan of and! So far, I have earned $10 to JCPenney and $5 to Amazon! Just for taking a few minutes from my day to do a couple surveys, answer some poll questions, and use a certain search engine. I'll share what I have learned. Want to know more?
