Send Earnings is the same set up as Inbox Dollars - but I found them a little more recently so I have yet to get enough to request payment.
Sure a couple cents an email doesn't sound like a lot, but it is amazing how fast it grows!

Welcome to my first "Money Makers" post. These posts are focused on ways and companies that you can make money with online. Inbox Dollars is one of the first companies I joined, so it seems appropriate that it be my first post in the section.
You have to have $30 to cash out (they will send you a check). You get $.02 for every email you read from them. You confirm reading the email by following a link at the bottom of it. They also have surveys and other ways to build up the account, which I sometimes partake in too. It took me about 6 months to cash out the first time. The downside is they charge a $3 fee to process the check and it does take a little while to arrive. However, it is free money. $27 is a nice amount for a few moments of work every couple days.

If you watch TV as much as I do, you might have noticed a commercial talking about how nearly all laundry detergents are watered down. Now the point of the commercial is that their brand is more concentrated - the moral that we should learn is that making your own soap is cheap and easy.
I want to say that I love being frugal but if something takes forever I'm less likely to do it. I will think, "Hey! That's a great idea," but won't actually follow through. I can handle making laundry soap.
We already bought those big containers of liquid laundry detergent - so we kept the last one after it was empty. There are lots of specific recipes and ideas that are helpful when you are just starting out, this site and this site are good starting points.
This is roughly the way we do it:
To make the process easier we have a glass container that always has a bar of soap sitting in water. It will slowly dissolve on its own so if we need to make dish or laundry soap on the run it comes together a lot easier.
The soap making ingredients are a bar of soap, washing soda (can find it in most grocery stores), borax and water. We do about 1/4 bar of soap, 4+ quarts of warm water, 1/2 of washing soda and 1/2 cup of borax. That's it. If everything isn't dissolving as it should, I but the glass jar in pot - creating a double boiler. I only heat the water enough so everything will be warm, not actually boiling. Pour it a container and use 1/2 cup or so per load of clothes.
This is what we have been using for about a year. It is a lot cheaper, and the clothes are cleaning up well. What more could you ask for?
I am looking forward to sharing crafts, frugal ideas, sweepstakes, contests, and ways to make money online.
The idea behind this blog is to share all the tips and sites that I have discovered in my quest to find ways to make a little extra money.
So many places give away freebies, have amazing sweepstakes, and opportunities to make a little extra cash that it can be hard to find a good starting place. That was how I felt when I first dipped my toe into this part of the internet world about a year ago. I am still learning, but I am happy to share what I can.
Looking forward to sharing soon -
