Starting Off the New Year! Cheap Books & Free Gift Cards

With the New Year upon us, people are making New Year's Resolutions, including financial ones. Many are buckling down and trying to find ways to save money, or even make money. I'm reminded of a few of my old favorites, and a new one.

Oldies But Goodies:

! Review some of my posts on successful couponing.

Swagbucks: earn Swagbucks by searching the internet, and cash them in for gifts cards or merchandise! In the year since I joined, I've cashed in my Swagbucks and gotten close to $100 in gift cards (for Starbucks, iTunes, and and a book on organizing :)

InboxDollars: read e-mails, click on the links, and earn cash.

$25 CVS Challenge: See how I've gotten 180 items, and still counting, spending only $25 at CVS!

Other ways to make money on the internet, including my posts on getting a $500 Sears card & a $500 IKEA card.

And a newbie:
Paperback Swap: It's a great way to get rid of books that you don't want & find books you're interested in. Basically, you "post" books by searching for books you have that you want to get rid of. If someone else then selects one of your posted books, you print out the label Paperback Swap creates for you, put the book in a mailing envelope or for smaller books & attch the label, or use Paperback Swap's mailing wrappers (printed on regular paper). You then attach postage & mail the book. When the book is received, you get 1 credit, and the person keeps the book. That credit can be used to pick a book you'd like to get shipped to you. You also keep the books that are shipped to you; you don't mail them back. If you post 10 books upon joining, you get 2 "start-up" credits, so you can start receiving books right away.
