How I Made $200 in August

As most of you know, being a Stay-At Home Mom is not the most financially lucrative career choice.  I find it so much easier to find ways to save money than to make money!  So I was pretty happy when I earned $170 in the month of July.  I am even more excited to report […]

How much money does a blogger make?

One of the questions that I often get, is “How much money do you make blogging?”  My usual answer is, “Very little.”  Although I have enjoyed my last 16 months of blogging at The Abundant Wife, I would be lying if I said that I am in it for the money.  Earlier this week I […]

The Cost of Substitute-Teaching in California

Brad and I both have a professional teaching background, his in math and mine in art.  Later we both taught English in China.  So it made sense to become substitute-teacher certified each time we moved as a way to earn additional income.  We have now become certified in three states: Maryland, Minnesota, and California.  Well, […]

Swagbucks Special Offer: How I Made $20 By Signing Up for eMusic

Last week I was studying my Swag Bucks home page in hopes of finding a way to earn a few more Swag Bucks.  I spotted a Swag Bucks special offer with a reward of 450 Swagbucks just for signing up for a 7-day Free Trial to eMusic.  This sounded like a great deal to me […]

Guest Post: How To Earn Additional Income

My personal goals in recent years have been to work for myself, create multiple streams of income and pay off debt. It may seem like a lot of work–and in truth, it is. However, I also know that hard work can greatly benefit my family. Thankfully, most of my work is done from home and […]

7 Tips For Turning Your Trash Into Cash

“When my husband and I moved from Maryland to California two months ago, we were surprised to see how small the garbage cans are here.  In fact, the “Recycling” can is almost twice as big as the garbage can, and the “Yard Waste” can is even bigger!  At first we could not understand how Californians […]

The easiest (or at least the most amusing) $100 we’ve ever made

Way back when Brad and I were newlyweds, we were scrimping and saving…and wait!  This sounds all too familiar!  Anyhow, I spotted a car seat on the side of the road, with a sign on it reading “FREE.”  I told Brad that we should pick it up because, although we didn’t have kids, I knew […]
