How I Paid for my Spring Break Trip to Las Vegas with Money I Made Online!!!

Spring break!! We have all been working hard throughout the school year, and we finally deserve a break. Some students soak up the sun in Florida or even go abroad in luxurious cruises around the Caribbean. Depending on where you decide to go, it can get pretty expensive.  As a self-proclaimed broke college student, I know how hard it could be to save extra money on top of the many things you already have to pay for.  With a little planning and hard work, I managed to pay for my full trip to Las Vegas only using the money that I made online! How did I do it? Keep reading below for tips and tricks on how to save up for any financial goal by working online! 

I found out about this app only a few months ago, and so far it has been my a great money maker! The app is generally composed of several different tasks which could pay anywhere from 7 cents to 50 cents.  The tasks that I have done include: phone surveys to different companies, finding lawyers' emails online, finding lawyers' phone numbers, and improving image titles.  This downfall to this app is that it is super random and you never know what you're going to get. It is very inconsistent to say the least. 

By using Spare 5, I made $426.04 since August, 2016. 

I have been a user on Swagbucks for a longgggg time; however, I never really took it seriously.  I decided to get back on it in August just to see if I could make a little extra change here in there.  On Swagbucks, I mainly used the mobile app to collect points by playing videos on my phone while I slept.  They also have several other deals and promos to take advantage of on the website.  

 By using Swagbucks, I made 516.03 since August, 2016! 

I'm fairly new at using Amazon's MTurk for making money, so I haven't made that much from it so far. I know some people make THOUSANDS every month, but I'm still familiarizing myself with the website.  MTurk is similar to Spare 5 where you are payed for completing Human Intelligence Tasks (HITs). Unlike Spare 5, there are literally thousands of HITs to choose from. 

 On MTurk, I made 33.88 since January, 2016.

Since starting my minimalism journey, I've noticed that I have a lot of stuff lying around that I hardly use.  I decided to take my junk to a good use by selling it on ebay.  I've sold things like my broken laptop for $50 and even things I got for free off of Swagbucks.  You know what they say, one man's trash is another man's treasure.  

On Ebay, I made $258.63

GRAND TOTAL: $1,234.58!!! 

Of course, all of this didn't spend all of this on my trip, but this gives you an idea of how much you can make online "working" for only a few hours a week. This is not fast money by any means, but it can really help out when your budget is very tight. If you have any questions about making money online or if you want me to go into more detail about any of these websites, let me know in the comments!
