I get asked all the time if it’s worth it to do survey’s, clip coupons, buy stuff I may not need this month, etc. So let’s look at each of those things and I’ll let you decide if it’s worth it.
- Survey’s- Well lets see I’ve been doing surveys, paid emails and Swagbucks for months now and managed to buy this yesterday. I paid less than $100 and that was out of my ebay money.
- Clipping Coupons- In the past 3 years I haven’t paid full price (or nearly anything) for razors, toothpaste, groceries, etc. Yesterday I bought 2 packs of blueberries, 2 things of raspberries, 2 razors, 3 yogurts, 6 bottles of dish detergent, ant bait, garlic bread, 5 bags of nuts and 2 packs of gasx for $3.20 So for me the little time it takes me to clip and organize coupons is definately worth it.
- And the last one for today Buying things you don’t need- To be honest I don’t really need for anything right now but if I stopped buying things we need I would have to pay full price when we needed it. I’ve bought things we’d never use (blood pressure monitors) and in return I have a wonderful tower fan and a topsy turvy tomato tree that cost me absolutely nothing. I’ve also held several successful yardsales selling the extras and have been able to buy a Wii and lots of games to go with it plus lots of other things. The next yardsale will raise money to buy paint and new things for our house.
