I've had limited time this year to look into ways to earn money with surveys and search engines and have mostly used Swagbucks. But over at TheFrugalNavyWife, she has it down to an art. Hop on over and take a look. Try and be extra savvy with the holidays coming up. You can get bonus points by going through Swagbucks to make purchases and using bonus points for your Christmas shopping.
You may not be able to follow all the suggestions on The Frugal Navy Wife but make a few notes and at least look into what might work for you.
