5 Ways You Can Make Money With Your Cell Phone Now!

There are several ways you can make money with your phone and doing it won’t cost you an extra penny. Payouts are generally small, but if you allow them to accumulate, they can really add up.

  1.  I have been using S’more for over a year now and I’m very happy with it. S’more is an app you can download for free. Once installed in your phone, you answer a few questions (to determine your interests) and then the app is ready to use. S’more makes money by posting ads on your phone. What does this mean? It only means that you will have to swipe the add aside whenever you want to get into your phone. This may be slightly annoying to some people, but for me, I’ve gotten used to it. Sometimes the ads are of interest to me and it’s something I actually want to see. Over the course of a year, I have earned over $50 in points, which you can trade for things like Amazon gift cards and gift cards to other places to shop and eat.S’more gives you 10 points (1 point = 1 cent) a day just for having the app and using it, but they also offer surveys, so if you have some free time you can take some surveys and earn more. I’m not sure if they are still doing it, but for a while they had deals in which you got a good deal and earned points. For example, last year I got Norton Antivirus through S’more at a very discounted rate and I also earned $10 in points.

    If you think S’more sounds right for you, click here for more information: S’more. If you want to help fund my RV adventure and you think you want the app, please use referral code MQKXTZ. By doing so, you’ll get an extra 25 points to start!

     

  2. Are you trying to count your steps? Maybe you just have your phone with you all the time. Sweatcoin is pretty neat. Not only is it a built-in pedometer, but every 1,000 steps converts to 1 dollar in sweatcoin. Sweatcoins can be turned in for things like PayPal and Amazon gift cards. Be sure to connect with if you do join Sweatcoin! I’d love to see what you are all doing you can find me @beth539091!
  3. Pay Your Selfie is fun and you can earn anywhere from $0.20 to $1.00 for doing different things. For example, you can earn $1.00 for posting your profile shot, another dollar for telling your story, and $0.25 for taking a picture of your breakfast. You can connect your PayPal account to the app, so it’s easy to get paid.
  4. Stash is a way to cheaply invest in many different types of companies. I’ve been doing this for several months now and I’ve already made some money. I do just $5 a week for each business I want to invest in. I hardly notice the money is missing from my account (it automatically comes out). You get $5 to start investing with Stash!
  5. Ibotta is easy to use. Simply install the app, set up an account and start scanning your receipts. You can also link your loyalty cards to Ibotta. Cash back for your purchases is deposited in your account within 48 hours.

The Great Bacon Hunt in Dublin


By Beth Lytle

Hello Everyone!  It’s been a while since I posted on here.  When you visited me last, I was living in Frankfurt, Germany and I was busy telling you what it was like as an American living in Germany.  Well, it’s been a busy year.  Since then, I relocated to Dublin, Ireland.

Now that I’ve been here a year, I’ve decided there are a lot of things I have to say about Dublin.  For one thing, even though I didn’t have problems getting around Frankfurt as an English-speaking person, it is, of course, much easier in an English-speaking country.

One thing my family has learned since being here is that we’re not big fans of rashers, the UK/Irish version of bacon.  Since bacon is one of our all-time favorite foods, I began doing some research on the subject.  I’ve also discovered where you can find bacon in Dublin.  Even though there are not many places, you can actually find bacon all over Dublin.

Here’s a bit of background information about bacon.  It will help you understand why an American might find rashers to be a bit off.  In the United States, the majority of bacon is prepared from the pork belly.  In other parts of the world, it is prepared from several different cuts of meat, usually from the back and sides.

So, let’s get on to where you can find the bacon you’re looking for in Dublin.  There are three main places we buy our bacon from here.  The first place is Tesco, but it’s not just any Tesco.  In fact, many Tesco’s do not carry what we’re looking for.  The Tesco we buy it from is the Tesco on Navan Road (next to the Maple Centre).  What we buy there is actually called Pancetta.  It looks and tastes like American bacon.  The brand we get is Sol.  It can be found usually in an end cap of a refrigeration aisle across from the deli section.  Despite the fact that we always find it there and that we order our groceries from that particular store, it does not show up on Tesco’s online ordering.

Next, you can buy bacon from the Fresh Market in Smithfield.  Sometimes they have it, sometimes they don’t.  You’ll find it to the right of the refrigerated Polish section if they do have it.  As far as I can tell, they stock two different brands.  The brand names are Espina Bacon and Campofrio Bacon.  We just found these brands, so I haven’t tried the Campofrio brand, but I cooked up the Espina brand yesterday.  It claims to be lower in fat and was okay, but even when cooked at a low temperature, it cooked up pretty crispy.  So far, my preference is the Pancetta from the Navan Road Tesco.

Finally, you can get bacon from Marks & Spencer.  They have a couple of different types of brands.  Unfortunately I haven’t bought any from there lately, so I don’t have the brand names or photos.  We get it from the M&S at the Jervis Shopping Centre.

Have you found other places in Dublin that you get your American-style bacon?  Post a comment letting us know where!  I will make changes to this article as I come across more information, because, yes, bacon is that important!
