Currently, Vol 10



This is what I am up to “currently”


Watching Wizard of Oz – After a picnic lunch in the park with the kiddos, we got home just in time for thunderstorms to come through, complete with heavy downpour and strong winds. What better time than during a windstorm to watch Wizard of Oz? The kids have seen it before but it’s not something that is in the normal rotation so I’m not even sure if they remember seeing it. Right now they are sitting in front of me watching and listening to “If I Only had a Brain” and are super into it. I think we’ve found a winner!

Reading Blog posts – I’ve reading a lot of different blog posts lately about affiliate marketing. As a matter of fact, I’ve been reading so many other blogs that I’ve been neglecting to write on my own. oops. There is a ton of information out there about how to make money online without getting caught up in scams. Many of these you can even do without a blog or website. My favorite affiliate program from this week so far is Shopstyle Collective and I’ve been using it with my pinterest account. I’ve only made $1.15 so far. But considering it was in my first 3 days after signing up, I think that’s pretty good. Better than the whole 95 cents I’ve made with Google adsense for the entire month(I’m considering getting rid of adsense, but I’ll give it a little time)After I get some things going I’ll be sure to write more about what is and isn’t working for me.


Simplifying – I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that I have accumulated WAY too much stuff over the years. I was gearing up for a garage sale but I didn’t end up having one because my brother needed my help with a last minute surgery he was having. I ended up taking a van load of items to Goodwill to donate, I put some others up on a local free/pay it forward group to give away and we’ve sold a couple of things. We still have A LOT more to get through and I’m ready to get it all out I really need my house back. Having so much clutter makes it hard to keep it clean too. My family and I are working toward having a mobile lifestyle and do some traveling. But the first step is to purge all of the extra stuff we don’t need.

    I need to simplify! I’m planning my yearly yard sale to get rid of all the crap I don’t need anymore! Other than that I have been enjoying my Summer.

    Woohoo on the decluttering! I’ve always tried to keep up with things after seeing some severe hoarding issues in my family, but no matter how much I give, sell,donate or throw away I still feel overwhelmed by what we’ve acquired. I’ve been lazy and just frequently donating things to goodwill while a co worker encouraged us all to donate elsewhere so I called the volunteers of America to do a porch pick up which occurred this week. I didn’t get to spend as much time on cleaning as I had hoped but I did fill 3/4 of my rather large porch with donations! And I’m not meaning that to brag but as being able to purge and not hang on to every single thing!

    What a great movie to watch with the kids. It has such a powerful message to take from it. I need to declutter too. I have been doing it and look forward to cleaning up a whole lot more. So much junk.

    I too am currently downsizing. I was going through and old box and found so many samples from a blog post that I need to make a trip to GoodWill.

    I’d love to hear about what you’ve been reading and learning about affiliates. That’s something I really want to focus on right now so I’m making money even when I’m not working.
