Make Money From Your Inbox!

We haven’t posted about Inbox Dollars in a while. It is one of the best survey companies out there! I’ve had several ESM readers tell me about this program and how they have made money just by opening the e-mails in their inbox. With Inbox Dollars you make money by opening the emails they send you. Sometimes they ask you to take a survey or sometimes you simply have to read the email to earn money!

Tip: Open a new “deal” e-mail account so you can have it seperate from your personal emails.

Try Manilla for FREE!

I wanted to tell you guys about a new free online service and mobile app called Manilla, which helps consumers (US!) simplify the management of all their accounts, ranging from utility and credit card bills, financial accounts, travel rewards programs, daily deal coupons (think: Groupon, Eversave, and Living Social) and magazine subscriptions.

With just one username and password, users can get instant access to all of their accounts (including those of family members) and can see when bills are due, daily deal coupons or magazine subscriptions are expiring, and more. Not only does Manilla help users avoid late fees and repair their credit ratings by providing custom alerts so users know when bills are due, but it also reduces paper clutter in homes by providing secure storage of electronic statements.

Manilla helps:
· Potentially avoid late fees and/or fixing your credit score
· Manage all your family’s accounts
· How to avoid expired daily deal coupons
· Tools that help you de-clutter and go paperless
· Personal finance apps

You can check out Manilla for FREE HERE!

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Manilla.

Getting Ready For a Baby? Nursey Savings Tips

As you all know we were blessed with a new little man not that long ago! I know getting ready for a baby can be alot of work and money can really add up. Cribs, rockers, changing tables, wall decor! It’s a fun project to take on and to fill time while you wait for your new baby to arrive. Here are some these money-saving tips for you when you are getting ready for baby!

1. Browse and create
Take your time and look at ideas online for the look and feel of your nursery. Pinterest is my all-time favorite resource for home decor and creative ways to repurpose items. Create your own Pinterest board and start collecting pictures of nurseries that you love and you’ll see a recurring theme of design styles that you are drawn too. Once you’ve narrowed down your style and theme, look specifically for ideas that will bring that to life.

2. Shop online
Start building your nursery by finding those big furniture items first. I suggest starting with a crib and buy it new to ensure it meets all current safety requirements. Don’t limit yourself to just what you see in the big box stores or baby boutiques, either. Instead, head online to sites like Hayneedle.com, where shipping is free on most items. You can also check FreeShipping.org for a list of online stores that offer free shipping on baby essentials, and grab a coupon code to save even more on your purchase.

3. Shop vintage
For items like a rocker or changing table, hit up your local flea market or antique mall. You can repurpose a low dresser and use it as a changing table just by adding a changing pad. If you find a vintage wooden rocker, you can refinish and repaint it to reflect your own style. You may be able to find a small, cushioned lounge chair for your nursery which you can reupholster or even paint.

4. Beg and borrow
You likely know friends or family that have had babies within the last year or so. Ask around to borrow items they may have in storage while they’re between babies, or items they’re just trying to get rid of. If the item is something like a crib or a baby swing, check the age and condition of the item before you commit to it. Safety is first when it comes to items like those.

5. Get free samples
Since every child is different, it’s helpful to load up your nursery with samples of wipes, diapers and formula so you don’t spend a bundle on a product that ultimately doesn’t work. You can ask your doctor or pediatrician for available samples, or better yet find free baby stuff online.

6. DIY decor
There’s really no need to buy the latest PB Baby artwork to go along with your nursery. Wall decor can easily be made if you’re willing to take some time and get creative. Canvas artwork is easy to make and can be customized for your baby and nursery.
