Cash for Clutter

I'm a big fan of getting rid of EVERYTHING I don't need.  The benefit is two-sided.  I remove clutter and excess junk from my home.  And, I can gain extra cash!

In December alone, I sold an old stool, bookcase and rocking chair.  By selling these pieces, I gained extra space and $75 in my pocket.

Think of your unwanted possessions.  Do they have value?  If so, SELL it!  If not, donate it.  Either way, you will be pleased lighten your unwanted load.

Coca-Cola Green Tea??

Hopefully, I'm not jumping the gun on this one, but did you know Coca-Cola has a Green Tea?  I didn't, but apparently it's done really well in Japan!  And it's getting launched here in the states next month.

Just heard about a 2 week random job - Jan 16th-31st - it's a promotion to launch the new product.  I'll be the Team Lead for Tucson, AZ!  Los Angeles and Phoenix will also be graced with Coca-Cola Green Tea samples as well (available at your local Whole Foods).

A great promotional company out of NYC, called Method Models is over this one.  Method Models is based out of NYC, but works on promotions all over.  Check out their website to find out what they are promoting in your area!  Should be fun to work for Coca-Cola Green Tea, I'm ready for a good two weeks of randomness!!!

Commercial Shoot

Ooops, I quickly posted and then was forced to remove my previous post.  I did work on a commercial in Atlanta, but the product, shoot pictures and details must remain a mystery until the commercial actually airs. 

Turns out the company doesn't want any information about their product leaked until they are ready.  Note to one but me reads this blog, so I think they are ok until the air date!!

I'll re-post the pictures once I have clearance :)

I've mentioned this before, but since the move to AZ, I've put a few books for sale on Amazon.  Thought I would share that $48.62 will be deposited into my account.  Not bad for books I haven't read or seen for over a year :)


Even though coupons are not exactly MAKING money, you are SAVING money that you would otherwise be spending.  Therefore, I am a HUGE fan of coupons!

Just FYI....the last two weeks I've saved $20 on groceries because of coupons.  That makes me VERY happy!!  Think about it....$20/week OR $80/month OR $1040/year!!! 

Plus, it's easy.  Check out, your local newspaper and the coupons that come in the mail.  Add them together on everyday items that you buy anyway.  You'll be saving before you know it!

Hair Show

Dec 7, 2010

I'm a little late posting this one, but last week I came across a posting for a Hair Show Model.  In all honesty, I was in desperate need of a cut and color!!  With Christmas just a few weeks away, I didn't think I could justify spending $150 on the much needed job.

So, this random job was just what I needed!!  A salon called Toni & Guy was launching several new haircuts.  They needed people to rock the new hair cut while they taught their employees how to do it.  I knew from the beginning what I was getting into....they would keep my length, but create some killer bangs.  The color was going to be pretty natural (cinnamon with blonde highlights around my face).

I was all over this one!  In Atlanta, I was too afraid to participate in a hair show because my headshot needed to look exactly like me.  Now that we are in Arizona, I'm ready to give the hair show a go!!

I received a fantastic haircut and color.  My stylist were top of their game and I would have paid well over $200 (without tip) for the cut and color.  Though I was not paid, the luxury service was well with my time!

Here are a few pics of my new west coast look....

Coke Zero Promo

Today was my first of two days with the Coke Zero Promo.  It was actually super fun.  No bimbos or liquor shots to pour.  Just good ole fashion fun!  University of Arizona students scored a free Coke Zero, no strings attached!  It was fantastic.

Oh, and after just one day, I got a raise!  I have been promoted to Team Lead.  Woohoo!  Just means everyone checks in with me, but it's an extra $2/hour for me.  Not too bad :)  I'm stoked!

This particular promotion is managed by a company called Redline Staffing.  Redline is based out of North Carolina, but works on promotions all over the US.  Check out their website and become a "Redliner" in your area!

Crazy Craigslist

Day 2. 

Craigslist is a must for the random day job.  Today, I came across a "Brand Ambassador" for a Coke Zero promotion.  Two day/5 hour job/$15 hour (Total of $150 for two days). 

The promotion starts tomorrow, so I figured it is probably booked.  Regardless, I sent along my information....just in case!

Lucky me!  One of the promotional girls had an "emergency" and backed out of the job.  This left one open spot.  The company called tonight and I'm booked for two days starting tomorrow.

I would call that a success in Randon Day Job world!

Coke Zero, here I come!

New City - Tucson, AZ

What a crazy few weeks.  Moved from MO to GA and now AZ in less than 2 weeks!  Five days after arriving in Tucson, I actually hosted my first Thanksgiving.  I was nervous everything wouldn't get done, but it turned out better than I expected!  Now that we are settled, I'm back to finding work.

The random day job in Tucson.  Day 1....

First, I posted some unwanted books on  Always a great way to make some extra cash after a move.  If I haven't missed those books in over a year, then I would rather have the cash!  Otherwise, it will sit around, collect dust, and we'll just move it to the next spot.

In the first two days, I sold 4 books!  The total profit of the 4 books was $43.21.  Not bad for old books I won't ever read again.

Social Media On-Camera Personality

Now this is completely my style!  About a week ago, I came across a Craigslist posting for an On-Camera Social Media Personality.  The gig hits 8 cities in 8 weeks to promote Houlihan's and VH1's Save the Music Foundation.  Sounds like a cool job promoting a fantastic cause!

Anyway, I applied and to my excitement, they actually called today.  Fortunately, I passed the phone interview and will be meeting the marketing team tomorrow for lunch.

I'm crossing my fingers on this one!  I would be stoked the land this job :)

Oh, check out the companies website....they work on marketing some super cool companies!

Cash For Online Survey's

Currently, I'm stuck in the middle of no where Missouri.  We are only here for a few more days.  So, with limited outside resources to make some extra cash, I've turned to the Internet.

I signed up for a website called  This website features offers and surveys for cash.  It's a totally legit company based on several reviews, but I can can tell this online survey stuff is not for me!  You have to give them WAY to much information.  Email, address, telephone number and some even want a credit card.  The payoff's are around .50-.75 cents per survey.

I worked on the site for 2 hours, made $2 and had about 35 new spam emails in my account.  Then, it took another 30 minutes to unsubscribe from the spam email lists.  I am not judging the character of the company, but personally it's not worth it to me.  Even if I sent the emails to a bogus account, it takes too much time for little reward.  Oh, and I have to make $20 before the company will send a check.

At my rate, I'll be working for 20 hours for $20 and with 350 new spam emails.  There has to be a better use of my time!

Random Day Job - Online Surveys - NO WAY!

Random Day Job

My life is Random.  More random than I would have ever dreamed.  Before I married, my work life was crazy.  All freelance.  All contract.  All the time.  But, then again, that's when the economy was up and people could make money just by looking at it! 

Then, I got married.  To an amazing guy, but this amazing guy had a job that moved us around.  Seven times in less than two years to be exact.  Moving that many times doesn't exactly create success in a career!  Employers think you are flaky, unreliable and non-dependable.

Not to mention, the unemployment rate is at an all time high.  Currently, 9.6% to be exact.  So, there are more people competing for jobs than jobs that are available.

Here's my idea.  What if I could make a steady income off of random day jobs?  I don't want the government to create more jobs.  I want Americans to Dream, like they do best, and create their own.

I'm going to share my journey.  Hopefully, I can make some $$$, but at the absolute least, maybe I can inspire someone who needs to pay off some debt or come up with some extra cash to get creative and make it happen for themselves instead of waiting for the government to send them a check.
