Some Great Resources for Freelancers

I've found some great websites that are specifically here to help you find freelancing work whether it be article writing, editing, proofreading, ghost writing, customer service, graphic designing, or virtual assistants. No matter what sort of online work you are looking for, these websites may be able to help you in your quest for work!

Rat Race Rebellion - This website has work at home jobs for almost anyone! Some of their job listings include: accountants, bloggers, mystery shoppers, medical transcriptionists, call centers, courthouse researchers, and more.

Freelance Writing Gigs - This is for the writers out there. Each day, they post listings of various job leads for journalists, bloggers, article writers, and proofreaders. The majority of the job leads are found on Craigslist but are for anyone wanting to work from home.

Fancy Hands - This is a job listing for virtual assistants. Jobs are posted and it may be something as simple as setting up reservations for someone or researching a product online. It's typically some very simple tasks that busy people just don't have time to do.


Remember, even when websites say that the job leads are legit, you should always make sure that you protect yourself. Always get prices and terms in writing and keep copies of your emails just in case you need them to prove that an agreement was made. Trust your instincts and research the company if you have to.  Don't accept any job that you are not comfortable with or that you feel does not pay enough. It is your time and your hard work at stake, make it worth it and make it count!

Purex UltraPacks Review and *Giveaway!*

Having 3 children, their clothing never stays clean for very long. Their clothes typically have some sort of stain on it whether it be juice, food, mud, or grass, it's very rare that their clothes don't have something on them when I put them in the wash. I don't like stains on clothes, so I usually spend a lot of time spraying the stains with various sprays attempting to get the dirt off of the clothing and not leaving a stain. Clothes aren't cheap and I don't have a lot of money, so clothes have to last awhile.. or at least until the kids grow out of them.

I was sent a sample of the new Purex UltraPacks to try. I love them! I don't have to worry about going through each and every article of clothing, finding the stains and then spraying and rubbing the spot to get it out. All I have to do is throw one of the packs into the bottom of the washer, pile the clothes on top of it and start the washer. Voila! No stains are left behind and I can now throw my stain sprays away. Laundry is done a lot quicker when I don't have to spray everything.

Now you will have a chance to try Purex UltraPacks for yourself! Thanks to purexinsiders.com I was given coupons for FREE Purex UltraPacks. I am giving away two coupons to one of you! All you have to do is enter!

Contest will end on March 15, 2012.

Winner will be chosen on March 16, 2012

Sweeping/Samples Update for January

A new month is upon us already, where does the time go? January seemed to be a bit slow as far as samples went. I got a few, but not enough to even bother taking a photo of. It included some lotion samples, acne medicine samples, a Progressive sticker (I love Flo!), and a few other things.

Sweepstakeing was a little better in January. I won a workout video from Kelly Coffee-Meyer which is perfect timing because I'm trying to get healthier and work out a few times through the week and this video is more for beginners, so it's perfect for me. I got an email saying that I won some free Maybelline products and a year subscription to Better Homes and Gardens. I'm still waiting to receive both of those though.

Anyone have any luck in January? I don't enter every day like I should, but I do it when I have some free time. The Facebook app is so easy to use, I can do it while I watch TV in the evening during some relaxation time. My kids just seem to think that it's AMAZING that I get free stuff just for filling out a few things online. They don't realize how many hundreds of sweepstakes I have entered compared to the few that I have won. I couldn't imagine what they would think if I won something huge like a trip or a car! ha!

A few Sweepstakes for you to enter:

Sweetheart Sweepstakes. This is through Money Mutual and they are giving away money every day through the month of February. You have to like their Facebook page to enter.

$250 worth of Jeans! Who wouldn't want some new jeans? For yourself, spouse, or your kids!

Auto Zone - They are giving away $250 and then a grand prize of $2500!


Amazon Kindle Fire - This is our very own giveaway! Only 2 days left to enter so enter now!


In a few days we will be hosting another giveaway, so keep an eye out for that!
