Let's Talk Christmas

Christmas. It's 8 months away. As a kid that seemed a world away. As an adult not so much. Time just seems to fly. So....instead of waiting this year start thinking about Christmas now.

Here's some of my ideas on how to have less $$ out the door in December. As I find more, I will add more to this post.

#1. Join Swagbucks.
I've earned a little over $10 to using Swagbucks (I started in February). I do a few searches on it per day til I win some swagbucks. Then I click through the no obligation Special Offer section everyday for 2-3 swagbucks. Buy Christmas you should have enough bucks to buy at least one present or more if you participate for just a minute or so daily.
CLICK HERE to sign up for Swagbucks for FREE.

#2. Join MyPoints
I've been a MyPoints member since 2001. Since then, I have earned about $800 or more in Gift Cards to various places I shop. You earn points reading the emails they send, taking surveys, and by going through their website whenever you shop online. We make sure that if we can buy it online then we do rather than buying it in store to maximize our point potential. A lot of places will let you buy online and pick up in store too!
Let me know if you wanna join and I will send you a personalized invitation.
PS- Janny go ahead and send me your email address b/c you will definitely want to join if you're not already member. If you register you credit card with them, you get 3 points per dollar for Royal Caribbean purchases.
