Show me the money... (Weekly Recap)

How much extra money did you earn this week? How much did you save? Here's my weekly re-cap of money/gift cards earned, cash saved by using coupons, and freebies received in the mail.

Thanks for the paid survey information Kookaburra.
You see, taking online paid surveys cant actually make one rich but it does makes one a reasonable amount of online income when compared to the amount of resources invested in doing it.
You are a very interesting writer and i would love to also see a comment from you on my paid surveys blog and my latest posts here at paid surveys for money and paid surveys scams.

Great job on saving money. Does show that a little time does pay off. Some people scoff at coupons but I say, "would you not pick up a dollar if you saw it lying on the ground." Not using a coupon is like ignoring that free money.
