In the mean time I've partnered with a web shopping program that earns cash back. I get cash back on every purchase I make on-line. I make it a point not to shop unless I get cash back. My cloths, makeup, over the counter health care items, hair and body care, cleaning products, car care, even my toilet paper, paper towels and tooth paste is bought on-line. Right now I have $145 to cash in. I've cashed in several times this past year.
It started slow but as I learned more and more about the program and saw how much cash I was getting back I got the hang of it and now rarely go to a store. I shop at the same stores I used to visit but now I shop on-line and get paid to do it. What could be better? I don't burn gas or time or deal with crowds.
