I've been doing Amazon's mTurk for a little over a month now and I got to my first monetary goal of $150! I'm not doing it all day, every day, but I was averaging several dollars a day. I'm not doing it to make any serious income, but only to feed my Amazon shopping habit. I'm saving for books, movies, and to continue to stock up my baby supply stash. Hubby and I are on a very tight budget, so whatever I make on mTurk is mine to blow on the goodies.

My first goal of the $150 was to get a Beaba Babycook Baby Food Maker. That was the one big ticket item I really wanted for my baby stash. I just ordered it and it should be here on Tuesday (my birthday!).

My next goals are $35 for a hamper, $38 for a bouncer/rocker combo, more cloth diapers, and then a whole bunch of other little things under $15 each.

I'm doing Swagbucks also so I can suppliment with some $5 Amazon gift cards.

Yay!

Swagbucks is a combo search engine and rewards site. You don't actually make money from searching, but your earn points (swagbucks) that you can redeem for "prizes" like music, movies, gift cards, electronics, etc.

You can search just like you do with google, and the prizes are awarded ramdomly. You can also take surveys, daily polls, and do "special offers" (some are legit, but most are spam and scams). I've been doing it for about a month and have earned 4, almost 5, $5 Amazon gift cards.

I will also have to check out those things. I don't have too much free time but think it would be nice to have a little something for fun

I've just signed up to Clickworker which seems similar but so far only a few jobs have been available so I'm not sure I'll get anywhere with it.
