One of the most frequent things we hear is “I don’t have time to do apps and surveys”. That’s valid- people have hectic lives and no two situations are the same. However, all you have to do is check my fund, Kristen B.’s Fund, Marisa’s Fund, Brandy’s Fund or Sara’s Fund or just talk to the SavEars and you see on a weekly basis how much money there is to be made if you can just find the time.
How do you do that? How do you find time when your day feels booked solid?
You look for the little moments.
I purchased this mini bike this year, to give myself an opportunity for exercise. I’ve committed to using it for 25 minutes a day, and that whole 25 minutes my phone is in my hand, doing surveys, clicking links or watching videos that earn pennies. That’s definitely multi-tasking!
Do you Dabbl? There are plenty of short 30-second videos to watch during bathroom breaks. I know people are on their phones in the bathroom, I’ve heard too many phone calls taking place in public stalls to pretend otherwise!
You could also turn on videos when you’re grabbing the laundry from the laundry room. Take the phone with you to fold and just keep an eye on it as you get everything folded and ready to put away. When one video stops, start another one!
I take surveys in the pick-up line while I wait to get my kiddo from school- or I run videos, depending on how long I think I’ll have to wait to get her.
Cooking dinner? When there is a break in the action- I’m waiting for something to boil or finish up, I’ve got my phone in my hand, clicking those ads or doing short surveys.
If my husband is driving us somewhere? I’m on my apps, looking for secret shops or doing tasks to score more points.
I consider scanning my receipts for receipt apps like CoinOut to just be part of putting up groceries. It only takes seconds to take the photos for submissions and those points definitely add up! I just go ahead and build that time into my putting away grocery time- after all, you aren’t going to look at the clock and say “oh, I can’t afford an extra 60 seconds to put up this steak, guess it will have to sit out on the counter and go bad.”
