Readers may want to check their local thrift stores. Near my town, a thrift store called Caring and Sharing offers volunteers $4 of store credit for each hour volunteered. You can accumulate hours to save up for the item you want.
The work entails placing donated items on shelves and putting a price sticker on them.
Looks like we will be getting a free crock pot!
I cannot say I have fully vetted these, but from the research I have done, these should be legit.

As I learn the lay of the new land, I'm putting together my cheapo list. It is a work in progress so email me at email@example.com if you know of great deals!
Gas/Food: Sign up for a City Market loyalty card. Load coupons and Friday freebies onto your card from their website. For every $100 dollars spent (per month) you get 10 cents off your gasoline at Loaf and Jug.
Beer/Food: Sign up for Moonlight Pizza email. Doing this gets you a free soda or a quarter beer. Go there on Tuesdays for happy hour all day plus buy one full sandwich and get 1/2 sandwich free.
Another hidden gem is Eddyline Brewery. Download the Yelp app, check in at either the taproom or the restaurant on South Main, receive a free chips and salsa. Be sure to keep your receipt as I got $1 off packaged beer!
Check rest areas and travel plazas for coupon booklets. The deals in there are often better than the Internet!
We recently found coupons at a Chinese restaurant in York Nebraska. The OAK TREE INN in North Platte gave us a queen bed plus 2 free breakfasts at Penny's Diner for $62!
Here are my multiple income streams. This is my philosophy of diversification. Not bet the farm on one profession for the rest of your life!
I've ordered them from highest paying to lowest paying.
Own stocks which pay large dividends. Dividend payouts vary month to month, but are rarely under $500.
Selling calls and puts. This income also varies month to month, but rarely below $70/month.
Swagbucks Get paid to search the Internet, complete offers, watch videos. The mobile TV app earns money while my phone charges. $40/month.
QuickRewards I do the daily clicks and the trivia and make around $12/month.
Pure paid to click. I earn $9/month. See the banner below and my video tutorial.
AppTrailers Paid to view movie trailers and ads on my phone. 500 points cashes you out for 50¢.
QMEE Paid to search for products using Google, Yahoo, Bing, Amazon, and eBay. Fast payouts. No minimum for cashout.
At the end of July, we finally escape the harsh Midwestern winters and all the violence/taxes in Chicago. It takes lots of planning and preparation, but you can find great value and beauty in Colorado.
The free views are spectacular!
The outdoor cafes and breweries are phenomenal considering you are so far from the front range.
And you don't need a gym membership out here! You can find trails that are easily traversed.
I'm not a geologist, but from the alternative articles I've read, natural gas will explode sometime between now and 2020.
The play for me is $BOIL and I'm boxing in the current price by selling out of the money calls and selling out of the money puts.
Skip to 37:30 for nat gas analysis.
Upon joining, you will see a screen like this. I only do the 4 I've circled. Should get you 40 cents per day. Easy money with little effort. Cash out anytime (no minimums!)
I luv this program because the auto surf features are excellent! If u choose to surf a few pages per day, make even more. U should average about $6/month as a free member.
Be sure you read my previous posts here.
Housing, transportation, and food are the best areas to save money. We decided to turn our existing home into rental property (a $400/month positive cash flow) and move to a much nicer part of the country. We got this place for 56K. HOA dues are $650 a year!
Since banks are less willing to make loans for debt consolidation and college tuition, people have turned to the Internet. The 2 main sites are Lending Club and Prosper.
Here are my reasons to avoid Making Loans on these sites:
We can even get the governemt employees who administer food stamp programs to use extreme couponing as well.
