Lactose Intolerant Study (Boston MA, New York City (all 5 boroughs), Philadelphia PA, Syracuse NY, Albany NY or Hartford CT only)

Not sure why they sent this to me, as I don't live in any of the mentioned areas, but maybe some of y'all can make some $$!

Dear Participant,
Have you forgotten the great taste of fresh-from-the dairy milk? For millions of lactose intolerant sufferers, the delicious taste of milk has been muted by substitutes that taste too sweet, replaced with 'grainy' soy products or just completely eliminated from their diets.
If you had the opportunity to enjoy the real taste of milk without the unwanted side effects, wouldn't you want to give it a try?
We know that lactose intolerance is REAL: We understand the side effects it causes, that there are not good 'solutions' in the market and that some lactose intolerant consumers simply give up milk and other dairy products altogether because they are dissatisfied with the available brands.
You deserve the opportunity to experience the fresh taste of milk. We would like to invite you to participate in a program to connect lactose intolerant sufferers with a new brand of lactose free milk. Male and female participants ranging between 25-54 years old are welcome to participate. You must also reside in one of the following cities: .
During the next eight months, you will have the opportunity to sample this new product, communicate online with other lactose intolerant sufferers and experts, and share your experiences.

Warm regards,

Cow Appreciation Day at Chick-fil-A

I just thought this was too funny not to share! I actually know a couple people who probably would dress up as a cow for a free meal... I love freebies as much as the next person, but I think I'll skip this one! lol

Courtesy of Freebies 4 Mom

Mark your calendar because Friday, July 10 for Cow Appreciation Day at Chick-fil-A, where you get rewarded for dressing like a cow. I've heard that some stores are even having a "Costume Prep Party" where they are helping you make your costume. Why would you want to dress like a cow? It's fun and you get a free combo meal at Chick-fil-A when you fully dress as a cow. They've also got a cow costume kit to print plus photo contests to enter.

Last year we didn't dress like cows, but we did go thru the drive-thru for lunch that day and they gave us a big cow sticker and a coupon for a FREE Chicken Salad with the purchase of a medium Dr. Pepper. So even if you don't dress like a cow, it's still worth stopping by on Cow Appreciation Day because they might be passing out special coupons again to everyone.

Heading out Friday or Saturday

FINALLY getting ready to head home! Man, I'm a bundles of nerves! lol It's exciting, but sad (as I do have my Dad, Aunt and Grandpa here in California). I'm really nervous about that VERY long drive, over 1600 miles! Everyone, please keep us (me and nine year old son) in your thoughts and prayers!

Obviously, I probably won't be posting for a few days, but hope to be "settled in" sometime next week, so I can get back to it.

Watch out Oklahoma... here we come!!! lol

Where do you live?

Participating in market research studies is, not only a great way to get your voice heard, but also a way to earn some good money! Where you live often plays a part in what studies you can do, and how much money you can earn. For instance, where I lived in Oklahoma, there weren't many market research companies nearby. That cut into what I could earn doing in person studies, BUT, there are some advantages to living in regions like that. For a lot of online and telephone studies, companies like to get the opinions from people all over the country, and there isn't as huge a database of people in a lot of smaller areas, so I would sometimes get selected because I was from that area.

If you do live near a major metropolitan area, your best bet is, often, the in person studies. Don't let those scare you... they're really laid back, and usually fun! You go in, sometimes for a one on one interview, but usually, with a group of other consumers. You give your opinions on the product or service... just be honest... that's what they really want! And then you are rewarded for your participation right then and there, nice and easy!

How do you find out about studies in your area? Look in your phone book for market research companies. Call and ask to be added to their database. When they are looking for consumers that match your demographics, they'll call you! Or, look on Craigslist! Oftentimes, companies will list upcoming studies, as they really need a certain number of participants in order to get accurate information for the company needing the research. They are usually listed in the jobs section, under part-time or etc jobs. They will usually provide a list of questions, and an email address to send your responses, or a link to a questionairre that you can complete. If they think you may be a match, they'll give you a call and give you the specifics.

Don't give up if you don't qualify for one or two... they are always needing different people, and it'll be worth it when you make that extra couple hundred bucks for an hour of chatting about your opinions!

Good luck!

$1 Tees at Old Navy!

Courtesy of Engineer A Debt Free Life, an awesome blog and newsletter, that helps you save and earn money:

Old Navy is selling t-shirts for $1 a piece! The $1 shirts are available at Old Navy in Canada starting on June 30 (BTW, it's July 1, so Happy Canada Day to all our Canadian friends and relatives) and are the Canada Day t-shirts.

The $1 shirts will be available at Old Navy in the United States on July 3 and will be the flag t-shirts. There is a limit of 5 shirts, however.

Definitely can't beat that!!!

One of my favorite sites!

This site isn't my top earner, but it's definitely in my top favorites! HCD sends surveys on fun topics! Usually political in nature, or about recent news events, these surveys aren't your typical repetitive, long drawn-out surveys that you get from a lot of companies. They usually last 5-10 minutes, asking for your opinions on hot topics. They do, occasionally, offer longer surveys, for higher pay. I did one last week, that I earned $50 for! Anyway, it's a fantastic company... I really enjoy giving them my opinions, and I get paid!!! Can't beat that! If you're just dabbling in surveys, and don't like those long ones, or the ones that disqualify you if you're not making 200K a year, you should definitely try this one!!! :)

Life... insanity!

I know my poor blog has been neglected as of late, and I do apologize. It's been a very trying time... but, I'm getting ready to go home!!! I'll miss my father dearly, but I really need to be in Oklahoma, where I'm comfortable. I have so many family members and friends in Oklahoma, and it'll be so much easier to survive. Plus, my son is so looking forward to seeing all the family back there!

Anyway, the next week is going to be quite hectic, but I do, so, plan to come back to work full-time, as soon as I get settled, and give plenty of hugs!!!

Thanks so much for all your understanding!
