Saving and Giving has moved to! I hope that you'll all join me over at Saving & Giving's new home. I'm planning some fun giveaways to kick things off. I'm still working on the site, and I'd love to hear your input. Let me know which features you want me to keep. You can email me at If you're currently an email subscriber, you shouldn't see any change in your daily email newsletter. I switched the feed over so that you should continue to receive your daily updates.

Making Money Online: Surveys & Emails

Usually we're talking about ways to save money, but I've been asked by a few people about ways to make money online. One of the ways that you can do this is through paid surveys. Not all survey companies are going to match well with every person, so let me give you a few that you might be interested in. My advice would be to try each one for a couple of weeks and then choose a couple to stick with. That should be enough time for you to get a good idea of which sites are the best fit for you.

I'll also include a few sites that pay you for reading emails. Those might be more your style than answering questions.

TIP: As with any time you're signing up for something online, you might want to set up a separate email address just for the survey/email reading companies you deal with. That way, your personal inbox isn't flooded with survey opportunities.
