Earn Money with your Grocery Receipts

Wait... don't throw away your receipt!  Did you know you can start earning money by simply scanning in your shopping receipt.  If you have a smartphone you can download the app called Receipt Hog and start making money.  It's very easy.  Just snap a picture of your receipt, earn coins and redeem them for rewards.  Currently, the rewards are money into your Paypal account or an Amazon gift card. Both of which are awesome rewards for simply scanning in receipts.

You may be asking yourself how and why you can earn money this way.  Well there are market research companies out there that are paying money to view your (our) shopping habits.  Now this app isn't going to replace a full-time income, it is a way to add a small amount of extra cash to your budget. 

1,000 coins = $5

I added 3 receipts this morning and got 10 coins for two receipts under $20 and 15 coins for a receipt equaling $98.  

The cool thing is you get 50 coins just for signing up.  And you can earn spins (to get more coins) by adding receipts or by connecting your account to Facebook or emailing your friends and asking them to join.  

Now the really sweet part: If you submit one receipt per week for 5 consecutive weeks  you will go Hog Wild and earn an extra spin per qualifying receipt you submit.  I earned 10 coins with 2 spins today.

If you're interested in learning more or signing up head over to Receipt Hog now

Do you already use Receipt Hog?  If so what has been your experience, good or bad?

Today = National Depression Screening Day

This week marks the annual Mental Illness Awareness Week and today is National Depression Screening Day.  If you or someone you know may be suffering from depression today is the day to step in and offer help.  Please go to the Screening For Mental Health site and take an anonymous screening (link in the middle of their page), or send someone you know the link.  Mental illness is most times a silent disease that a lot of people prefer not to talk about, today is the day to be there for someone.  Here is a little more information directly from the Mental Health Screening website:
"Screening for Mental Health offers National Depression Screening Day programs for the military, colleges and universities, community-based organizations and businesses.
Held annually during Mental Illness Awareness Week in October, National Depression Screening Day (NDSD) raises awareness and screens people for depression and related mood and anxiety disorders.
NDSD is the nation’s oldest voluntary, community-based screening program that provides referral information for treatment. Through the program, more than half a million people each year have been screened for depression since 1991".

Trade Plant Equipment

Major plant and equipment can be difficult to find, and at a great price or location. Major pieces of equipment can become a major financial burden to a company. Equipment such as lathes, forklifts and diesel engines are expensive to buy and maintain.  If you are in the market for such equipment the best place to search is Trade Plant Equipment, where you can easily find used equipment like used lathes. You can search any type of equipment by subtype, class, make and model. Your search can be conducted within a certain price range and seller location. Trade Plant Equipment is also a great place to sell equipment you no longer need. Or better yet, trade in your old equipment and upgrade to something newer.
