Super Coupon Woman’s Less Than 100 Day’s Til Christmas Side Hustle’s To Try!

Hi Everyone,

Not to freak everyone out, but there is less than 100 days til Christmas! I have been unemployed since July 23rd because my company did not take care of an injury from a fall I had at the workplace and after 18 months. I just got tired of it hurting. Going through a little PSTD from bad treatment from managers I have had in the past so I have been a little nervous to jump back into a job that I would be unhappy with. I thought I would share some of my side hustles I have tried and continuing to try as I am looking for a remote work at home job since I may need to go down and help with my mom and brother since he is having surgery.

Off and on I have been a mystery shopper and have been doing some of those while I was off. I only like to drive certain areas so that limits where I choose from. I made about 250 in August, but if I was more open to travel I feel that I could make a full time living from it. The more companies you sign up for, the more chances to increase your income because some will have only a few if any to choose from, but that is only because there are so many shoppers and do not get discouraged as a lot will cancel and need shops done and sometimes they will even offer bonus pay to do them. Please keep in mind that payment can be anywhere from 30-60 days. Keeping a little notepad with shops done and the amount is helpful to keep track of how much you earn. I folder labeled mystery shopping in your bookmarks is helpful as well. I have been trying to different ones for the experience and to make me feel more comfortable while doing them.

Here are the current Mystery Shopping Companies I use They are kind of in order of my favorites, but everyone likes different things, so what I like might not be the same for you. What matters to me easy scheduling and rescheduling if needed and reports that won’t be rejected by the slightest mistake, they will correct you and give you tips on what to do and not to do for next report:

Jancyn I absolutely love this mystery shopping company. Different mystery shops that include various retail shops. Please use Tina Klein as referral name and supercouponwoman@yahoo.com if they ask for my email.

Intelli-Shop I love this mystery shopping company also. Plenty of shops to choose from as well as a variety and easy to work with. You do have to contact scheduler to reschedule, but I did so without any problem.

Sentry Marketing I have not used them as much as I should, but they have lots of different mystery shops to choose from. I will be doing one Monday for them.

North Fork Research I have done serveral shops for them, they are meticulous about the reports, just take your time and email with any questions you may have.

I Secret Shop Has several shops to choose from including web and phone shops. Easy to use, I have done one for them and plan on doing more.

EPMS Mystery Shopping I am signed up but have not done one yet, they are apartment shops and pay $25.00 so can add up quickly. Reports will need to provide precise details. Some shoppers really love to do these.

Other Side Hustles:

Lyft I got approved with Lyft in about two weeks and was excited to start, but I only like driving certain areas. You have to accept the ride and it does not tell you where or how far your going. This would be great for someone who drives a lot and feel comfortable driving in all areas of where they live. I should give them another try soon, great way to earn extra money.

Door Dash: My daughter has done this a few times, and I feel it is worth the time and effort. When we do it, we are going to do it as a team and split the money, highly recommend. Please enter referral phone as: 214-604-8842

TNG Offer’s Merchandising which goes hand in hand with mystery shopping. It offer’s a flexible part time schedule that you can do through the week and most of the jobs do not require weekends. I am working about 10-12 hours a week, but could pick up more. The pay is a little lower than I would like, but my arm is healing so that is good. Pay is $10.00 an hour. Once you have some merchandising experience, other companies will want to hire you…job security πŸ™‚

Handy Pro Have previous cleaning experience or are you a handy man or lawn technician? Great way to pick up jobs in your area. My daughter works for them and averages around 16 an hour. You are allowed to bring someone with you to help clean the big jobs, you are responsible for paying them. I have done a few jobs with her, good way to earn extra money.

Super Coupon Woman’s 2017 Year in Review & 2018 New Year’s Resolutions

2017 was a year to recover and heal from several years of bad events that was hard to recover from. I had a pretty calm year other than falling and hurting my right shoulder which is my tray carrying arm. It’s still hurt and I have to be careful since I had to continue working with no money to fall back on. I am only limited to not being able to take large parties and other servers don’t believe I am really hurt.

My 2017 New Year’s Resolutions were:

Pay Debt Down Between 8-10k Success …will have 8k paid by the end of January. I did add some debt, but have a goal set to have paid by July of 2018

Build up Emergency Fund …Failed, but paid a lot of debt so it’s okay

Focus On Myself More and Not Put Extra Stress On Myself…Success!

Not Spend any money on Paying It Forward, can only use items others give me or free items I get from Couponing or any fund raising money I receive. Success…I did spend some money, but would back away if I was feeling overly stressed from paying it forward.

Make an extra 3,000 in income from side jobs such as book sales, mystery shopping, blogging, or other side jobs. Failed..only made about 200 and did not put time in on my blog, and froze as far as marketing my book because my self esteem got bruised from all I have been through…hoping to get my inspiration back this year.

Complete the 52 Week Savings Challenge which will give me 1,380.00 to deposit at the end of the year…Failed…too much debt to pay.

Try to pay for Christmas only using free money from gift cards from couponing, survey sites, etc. Failed

Write another… Book Failed

So lot’s of resolutions were not kept as with many, but the two main ones were…so I will be able to focus on the other ones this year. I hope 2018 will be a calm year that allows me to continue to heal and grow that will allow me to continue paying it forward without a heavy heart.

My 2018 New Year’s Resolutions are as follows:

Find fundraisers to raise money to grow and build Super Coupon Woman Foundation.

Continue to focus on myself to heal and grow as we all should each year.

Only spend money on paying it forward if budget allows.

Complete 52 Week Savings Challenge: Want to join to have 1,380 savings at the end of the year?
https://www.facebook.com/52weekschallenge/

Have three months worth of bills saved in the event of an emergency and work towards having six months saved.

Finish Girl’s Memory boxes and Scrapbooks.

Coupon & Stockpile more this year.

Write another book

Do mystery shopping or other side jobs to try and earn an extra 3k this year.

Start 2018 Saving Money in everyday life. My book will show you how to save money, coupon, and start your own pay it forward mission. Because I want to share my pay it forward mission with everyone, I offer the E-book version for only .99

Happy New Year’s!

Super Coupon Woman Hit Hard By Devastating Events

Hi Everyone,

I have not been able to write this post until today, and still having a hard time writing it. I was hoping for an easier year in 2016 since I have a rough couple of years financially, but it seems this is not to be. On Saturday May 28th, Jim called me to let me know that the business we owned together caught on fire. The fire spread very quickly and nothing could be saved. We believe that the fire started due to an electrical malfunction.

This is our busy season which makes this event even more harder to deal with because we were already on a tight schedule to get orders out. We had one Gazebo finished that got destroyed in the fire and the materials for the next gazebo also.

We are hoping to get back on our feet as quickly as possible to get everyone’s Gazebos to them in a timely manner.

We had just started recovering from the two Wylie Hail storms from April where our house and cars got damaged, my daughter’s car got destroyed and she did not have full coverage.

Though these events may have my spirits down, I will continue to Pay It Forward as soon as I can recover and things return to normal. I like to help others, not receive help! I am writing a book to be released on Black Friday 2016 that explains that part of paying it forward is being able to accept help when others offer. Any donation that will help us get back on our feet is appreciated, and you know Super Coupon Woman will continue to Pay It Forward to others as always. I am only $2,000 away from officially hitting $100,000 in Donations!

Thank you,

Tina & James Klein

Super Coupon Woman’s 2016 New Year’s Resolutions

So the New Year is here, and after a few rough years financially, I am hoping for brighter days ahead. I will still put paying it forward and donating a priority, but will also try to focus on myself a little more.

I tend to always put myself last without realizing it..I have not bought anything for myself in over two years! I spent 2,000.00 on the $50k challenge as well as taking a $9,000 setback due to lots of car issues (went through 3 last year…No No not my driving, just older cars that broke down and had to get a new one. I had to finally break down and get a new car with car payments which is what I was trying to avoid, but I am much safer so it will be worth it!

I helped over 70 children which equaled to about 30 families. I didn’t ask for any income requirements, just a Pay It Foward project, I gave each child between $250 and $400.00 worth of items. I asked each family to send pictures so I could put a video together. Out of 30, only five did. Thanksgiving, I helped 12 families, and only two sent them to me. When I messaged some of them and asked for the pictures, they just never responded back. Though I did not expect anything in return, this hurt my feelings knowing I put my own financial issues aside to pay it forward, their actions hurt my feelings as I am a sensitive person and take things to heart.

I am proud of my accomplishment, and will continue to work towards my #100,000 goal, just at a slower pace. I only need $15,000 to go! With the awesome friends I have, and getting my finances in order to save for a rainy day, this goal should be a breeze!

This year I plan on getting back into extreme couponing more instead of the retail end. I will be sharing my couponing trips with you..some I may scour and search for every coupon available, some I may just browse the sales. I had a fan want me to share how I work in donating my shopping trips. So by sharing my shopping trips good or bad, you can see how it works!

I will also be working on getting my debt paid down, and building an emergency fund so I will not have to be so stressed worrying about the next bill..(yes unfortunately, I am still in this phase)

So, yes this year I will focus on myself and still help others…good plan!

I look forward to sharing my book with everyone when I get it finished.

Happy Donating!
