It’s the last Saturday of October and the middle of Fall… this whole week has been absolutely gorgeous in Chicago – we’ve had some unseasonably warm weather which made me extremely happy. If only Fall was this warm all the time — it would be great. 70F in October, yesss please! Too bad it’s colder now that it’s the weekend – I’d definitely prefer the weekend to be warm than the weekday but I guess I’ll take whatever Mother Nature gives me.
I wanted to share some cool ways you can earn a little bit of extra cash online (I use these ways):
- Have you heard of GymPact? I talked about it a few times before but it’s an app that literally pays you to work out. You set your goal of how many times you wanna go to the gym/run outside and it pays you if you complete the pact successfully each week. If you don’t, it deducts money. I’ve already made $50 just from the app and I’ve been using it for about 6 months – not bad for not really doing anything different except logging my activity on the app. So now, they have a referrer thing — if you sign up and use my referral code “lipidKamil” you get a $5 reward right off the bat and I do too! SO download the app and sign up and USE MY CODE Thanks!
- If you’re a fan of rewards games for points, like I am – you should join Superpoints! I recently got a reward of a $15 Starbucks gift card and a $10 PayPal gift card before that. You get points for doing surveys and tasks, but you also get points every day in the mail so you don’t really have to do much of anything (which is mostly how I accumulated the points + tasks). It’s easy and it’s real. So I think you should join the site too via my link because it is an invite-only rewards network. We’ll be friends on there once you join and expanding your network bumps up your listing rank which means you may get more points and better rewards.

Favorite short-cut dessert: I’m a huge fan of easy and simple ways to re-create delicious desserts. Why dip strawberries in chocolate when you can make it much easier like this?
