As I continue in my Work at Home Mom journey, I'd like to review another site that has successfully paid out: Pinecone Research. Before I get into what they are all about, here is my proof of payment, to show they are worth your time. I requested payment on September 22nd, and they sent out my check the next day. It arrived in my mailbox about a week later.
I've recently begun the journey of trying to earn some money from home. It's a hard task when you don't have a degree and your schedule is pretty much all over the place. I also had a few requirements I needed to meet.
1. I needed to be able to make my own schedule, work when the boys are sleeping, and walk away from it if they needed me.
2. I didn't want to work for an MLM (multilevel marketing company). I'm a homebody who doesn't do well trying to get people to buy something from me. Not to mention, the few good friends I have don't want to be sold to.
3. I didn't want to be on the phone. My home is far from quiet with the boys and two weeks of working for U-Haul taught me to never look back.
I had tried looking for similar jobs back when Matt and I first got married with little to no luck. Being 18 and a little naive, I fell for a scam or two. My phone was being attacked by "Work-At-Home-Mom Incredible Opportunities," get quick rich muck, and I'm pretty sure one company kept my $50 sign-up fee. A few years later and wiser, I knew better than to give anyone money and the number I gave out is one I never answer anyway. Not to mention double and triple checking a company's reputation before giving them this information to begin with. While my cell phone does occasionally silently ring to quickly be dismissed, I have yet to have anyone scam me. That's a plus anyway!
Here's what I've been up to for the past week and a half.
Okay so I previously posted about my research on cheaper cell phone plans. I'd like to touch on it one more time as I have found more information. I hope you don't mind. I've recently come across a new prepaid cell service (I mean New as in only 2,000 likes on Facebook new) called ting.
I've recently delved into the world of Dave Ramsey and his "Total Money Makeover." It got me thinking about all sorts of things, especially the future and what finances will be like when we get there. One question that popped into my mind was: What am I going to do about our kids wanting cell phones? It's not a question of If they will want a cell phone, I bought my first cell phone when I was thirteen, it's a question of When they will want a cell phone. This thought process got me looking around online trying to see what options are out there that wouldn't make a huge dent in our budget. Some people might think I'm crazy for wanting to buy my kids cell phones, but I'm a worrier, I know for a fact I will want to be able to get a hold of them wherever they are. Though, I do also know all too well all of the dangers of giving a child a cell phone. This is why I was absolutely Thrilled when I found Kajeet. Kajeet is a prepaid cell phone provider that specializes in making phones for kids. Their phones come packed with every parental control you could ever want on your child's phone. You can make their phone not work while they are in class at school and at night, put a limit on their texting, block numbers you don't like, and best of all, put a sensor on the websites they can view.
