Hello, everyone! Today, I have a $900 giveaway and I'm also going to talk about my St. Thomas vacation. This giveaway is all about my most favorite recent vacation, and I've been on several road trips and vacations lately, so I wanted to put them all in one post.
Last week I had my Part 1 of ways that you can make extra money. Today is Part 2! As I said last week, lately, I haven't been working a whole lot. It's definitely a big difference as to when I was accepting all the shifts I could take and be working well over 40 hours per week.
I've been making extra money in several little ways, and they are working for now. I am glad that I get to enjoy my summer though and get to do a lot of small travel getaways such as to Chicago and Ohio!… Read more
There are an estimated 1.2 million people driving without insurance* in the UK. If you’re unlucky enough to be the victim of an accident caused by a hit-and-run or uninsured driver, your route to getting compensation will depend largely on the scope of cover on your own policy.

My sister is the queen of side hustles and is always making extra money. I definitely want to diversify my income so that I'm not as reliant on one thing.
I'm going to guess that you have TONS of things in your closet/home that you can sell. Go through it and sell it! You can bring your stuff into a local thrift store such as Plato's Closet, sell it yourself on eBay, have a garage sale, list your items on Craigslist and more.
You'll probably make the most money on eBay (depending on your items), but it is also the most work, and there are fees. Craigslist has no fees, but it can be more dangerous and you will have to weed through a lot of spam replies to your posting. A garage sale won't earn you a whole lot per item, but if you sell a lot of stuff then it might be worthwhile to have a garage sale. Plato's Closet is probably the easiest thing to do, but you don't receive as much.
Many people babysit. The money can be good and it can be fun also! My sister was only 14 when she babysat full-time and made $10 an hour. It was also in our neighborhood so she could just walk to their house.
I make a little bit of money each month by writing online, and it is nice since writing is fun. Writing online can be hard to get into though, as you either need to know someone (such as Michelle), or you have to start from the bottom up. You will probably have to work for free in the beginning.
I have never done any mystery shopping, but I do know of people who do this. I have heard of people making very little money (such as a couple of dollars per week) and some who make thousands per month. Some only work in order to get free items, whereas some actually make money off their mystery shopping. In order to make a living wage off of mystery shopping, I'm going to assume that you need to do a lot of mystery shops. The surveys that you take can also be very tedious.
If you calculate the amount of money per hour, it might be very low and not worth your time. It's up to you and what you can find of value for your time!

Debt can be a terrible thing, causing no end of worrying and sleepless nights. In some cases, a simple case of credit card or loan debt can quickly escalate into unmanageable debt that the person simply can’t afford to pay off, and these situations sometimes end in bankruptcy.
If you have debt and you want to nip it in the bud before it can escalate and potentially ruin your life, you need to take action now. Here are six things you can do to wipe out or at least reduce your debt before it starts to take over your life:
Have you ever ate an abundance amount of food and immediately regretted it afterward? Pretty sure we all have. There's been plenty of times when I ate an unreasonable amount of food and felt extremely guilty afterward. Here are some tips of what to do.
First off, don't beat yourself up too much, if at all. Learn from your mistakes, and the experience will eventually make you stronger later on.
Secondly, drink TONS of water! You might think the water is going to make you even more bloated and retain more water, but overall the water will flush out all the toxins in your body and move everything through your digestive system quicker. The water will also keep you full too of course. Green tea and other clean teas (that aren't filled with sugar of course) are really good for you. The tea will help flush out the toxins A LOT. There are so many teas out there that can do different things for you, like helping with sleep, giving you a more ‘positive' mood, and so on. I love tea!
Thirdly, DO NOT skip meals because your last meal was so huge. Go back to your normal pattern, and eat healthily. If you ate like crap in the morning, don't automatically think the rest of the day is a waste. You have plenty of more hours to make up for the morning meal. Also, don't skip out on your workout just because of the one bad meal. Remember, that one workout is better than not working out at all. In my opinion, every time I work out I automatically feel 100% back on my A game and ready to get back on track, rather than not working out at all and feeling like a lazy bum.
Fourthly, realize we are all human and slip up every now and then. Don't feel lonely in the process of changing your lifestyle, all these mistakes that you are going through are only making you a stronger person. You are also in the process of seeing what works for you. Something that works for someone else might not be the same for you, so don't get stressed. Someone might lose weight quicker than you or lose body fat quicker than you. Everyone's body is different and loses weight at different rates.
Last but not least, find an accountability partner that can help you stay on track. Do whatever works for YOU and makes you happy.
And as I've said before, be proud and congratulate yourself for even taking the step to be healthy. By simply putting in the effort to read fitness blogs, you are wanting to become healthier and better your lifestyle. Always try your best to keep a positive attitude.
If you have a deep binging problem and do it a few times a week, you might want to seek professional help.
