Fundraising & Custom Tees with #TeeSpring

shirtFrontThe overhead on raising money can often be extremely high, renting a place to hold the fundraiser, purchasing things for concessions, etc.  Even to do cookbooks, there is a pretty steep price tag and therefore profits go down.  T-shirts are extremely popular, but how do you know how many to order and if you order too many, you end up losing even more money PLUS you have old Tees sitting around.  Not cool!shirtFront (2)

Teespring is a company that can help us out with raising funds!  With no overhead cost, you can raise funds for your cause.  When checking out the site, I was able to see some pages to some past campaigns.  One was from a little girl raising money to go on a global choir tour.  She set her goal at selling 36 and was able to sell 49.  Another was a family raising money to adopt.  Their goal was 50 and they were able to sell 144 shirts to raise money for an adoption!  Out of pocket cost on both: NADA!!!

Here’s How it Works

shirtFront (1)1.  Design Your Product

You may choose your color from various shirts, hoodies or tank tops.  After you choose your product, you use the easy editing tool to add words or even add your own image.  It even tells you the base cost of each item so you can modify changes if you’d like.

2.  Set Your Goal

Next you set your goal and the price of your product.  The tool will allow you to see how much the base cost is and what your profit will be when you meet your goal.

3.  Write Your Description

Now you’ve got to the last part of work, aside from promoting your fundraiser of course!  You write a description of your product, give it a title, set the length of sales (up to 23 days), choose your URL, and set your shipping option.

That’s it!!!  Not much work for the fundraiser AND you get to reap the rewards.  If you don’t meet your goal, then no one will be charged and you aren’t out anything!  Pretty sweet deal.  I can’t even say that enough!  A fundraiser with NO OVERHEAD!!!  Yes, please!  If you have the products delivered to one address and then distribute them, you even get free shipping (inside the US, not sure on outside)!!!  Again, awesome!  Not that much work if you simply set a time and place for them to be picked up!  You’ll just have to do a little bit of work, but still way less than you would otherwise!

Quit procrastinating and get started making some cash today!  😀

Gamma Gamma Games

Swagbucks is wrapping up their big Back To School promotion with Gamma Gamma Games – here’s how it works:

Earn any amount of Swag Bucks from Games from now through Labor Day and you’ll be entered to win one of twenty five 250 SB prizes. You can check your ledger for wins from Games to make sure you’ve qualified. It doesn’t matter whether you win from free play or from a tournament, and if you’ve already earned from Games this week (starting on Monday the 26th) you’re already entered!

Games are a fun way to earn, and if you play them elsewhere online, you’re missing out on the opportunity to be rewarded for it! If you haven’t joined Swagbucks yet, you could be rewarded for much, much more – sign up today to start earning. I’ve used Swagbucks to get $450 in gift cards and you can too!

I’m days away from getting another $100 and can’t wait!  Check them out!  Easy way to earn extra $$$$

PayPal Rebates for Shopping


Ibotta is a app I found thanks to someone on facebook the other day and I’m pretty pleased with it thus far.

Earning is easy and they pay you directly via paypal.  What’s not to love?  I’m in favor!  I’ll let you know if I find anything bad about it, but thus far that’s all I’ve got.

I will say I’ve earned 50 cents and haven’t even made any purchases yet.  😀  That’s always nice!

Get $3 when you sign up for Swagbucks in February (US)

Valentine's SwagWant an extra boost to your budget in February??  I’ve lost count on how much I’ve made from Swagbucks over the years, but I’ll keep using it!  I earn a lot through shopping, but the most earning come from playing videos as I’m working!  Simple, doesn’t interfere, and I earn throughout the day!  Win, win!

If you haven’t tried Swagbucks before, you can get a bonus $3 for signing up as my referral this month. Swagbucks is a rewards site where you earn points (called SB) for things you’re probably doing online already, like searching, watching videos, discovering deals, and taking surveys. Then you take those points and exchange them for gift cards to places like Amazon, Starbucks, Walmart, Target, or PayPal cash.

When you sign up through me this month, you can earn a $3 bonus! Here’s how:

1. Sign up using this link

2. Earn 300 SB total before 3/1/18. You’ll get a $3 (300 SB) bonus for it!

3. If you want even more bonuses, you’ll get a $10 (1000 SB rebate) bonus for making your first shop purchase! That’s in addition to the SB you earn for every dollar you spend.

That’s it. It’s super easy, and Swagbucks is for real. While you can get gift cards and other items, I tend to get paypal cash.  And yes, I have actually received them.  I wouldn’t tell you if I hadn’t.

Free Spending $$$ Sites

Hellow all!  I thought I’d bring you an updated list of where I earn my extra spending money.  They are all really great and I’d love to hear if you have any that you love!  I’m always looking for extra easy ways to earn!

Sendearnings is a pretty simple site.  I’ve made $47 from their site, and I honestly haven’t done much!  It takes time, you won’t get rich from it, but I can honestly say that the check came at a perfect time, as I was able to use it as birthday and Christmas money!  Although it wasn’t much, we all know every little bit helps!  So, how’s it work?  You can go to the site to get the details and specifics, so I’m just gonna give you a rundown.  I make a little at a time from the site through clicking through emails, occasionally signing up for promotions or taking surveys.  One can also watch videos and do tasks or even play games.  You also get a percentage of purchases made through them, it varies from store to store.  There is a $3 processing fee when you get your check, but they take it out of your balance and credit it right back to you, so no loss.  Plus, you start out at $5 anyway!

Inbox Dollars is pretty much the same as Sendearnings.  Make money through all the same ways.  Actually, I frequently end up with duplicate emails from both companies!  At any rate, I have received a $52 check from them.  Had no issues with it at all.  So, I didn’t pay anything, just clicked through the emails, which is pretty quick and got a check!  No worries!!!

Search & Win

Swagbucks is pretty simple as well.  Once you sign up, you get bonus points for signing then you win swag bucks for searches.  There is also a daily poll that gives you 1 buck a day and you get one a day if you install the toolbar.  You can use it on your smartphone as well to get points.  Points can be used for many different things, but my favorite are the gift cards!  I have ‘bought’ 4 Amazon gift cards with Swag Bucks.  They send gift card codes to you online and have other types of cards.  They also have actual things you can buy: stickers, cards, vacuum cleaners, gaming consoles and accessories.  I’ve gotten over $250 from this one!  If you have a smart phone, you can get their search and video apps and earn even faster!

This one will give you rebates on products via paypal the next day when you submit your receipts for certain products via their smart phone app! You can get started here!  No minimum cash out.

Instant Bucks is similar to the others, you get points for clicking on emails, doing offers, searches, etc.  You can get gift cards or paypal cash.

I’d love to hear some sites you’ve had success with!  I’m always up for a little extra income!!!  Thanks for coming to the Zoo!!!

You Can Get Free Gift Cards For Shopping, Searching and Discovering What’s Online at

By now, most of you have probably heard of swagbucks, but in case you haven’t, here it is!  I have personally redeemed over $100 bucks in amazon gift certificates, but you can also choose various prizes, other gift cards, and even money paid via paypal.  I love that swagbucks is so easy to earn on.  I use my phone and, via their mobile app, earn a lot of swagbucks via their videos.  Most of the time, I just let them play.  You can also install the toolbar and use them as your primary search engine so that you earn bucks via searches.  Sign up using the code SBISONTHEGO and you’ll get a bonus 60 swagbucks to start off with!
I’ve been using My Points for quite some time now.  I go back and forth.  They now have a daily 5 that helps you get points quicker, so quicker to a pay out.  Definitely worth opening a few emails to get extra gift cards!  Check them out!

Send Earnings
I’ve been a member of Send Earning for a while.  As for redemption, I’m at over $60.  Upon signup, you get $5.  You’ll be paid via a check in your mailbox.  You get rewarded for reading and clicking emails, doing searches, playing games, taking surveys and shopping.  When you shop through them , there are sometimes special deals as well. Must reach $30 to cash out.
Inbox Dollars
Inbox dollars pays about the same as Send Earnings.  Same offers and everything, but you still get rewarded for basically clicking or doing almost the same thing again.  I’m at over $60 with them as well.  $5 sign up bonus, paid via check.  You have to reach $30 before you can cash out.
