Snow, Health and a New Job in 2011!

legitimate work at from home jobs divider
2011 has been coming at us non stop!  It's been quite the roller coaster ride and we're only finishing up the first month of it now!  

Weather:
I hope everyone out there has been staying safe and warm through all the crazy weather that's pouring down on so much of the country.  We've been buried (repeatedly) under mountains of snow, including over a foot of it last week, with a possibility for more sometime in the next few days.  Being from Texas all these "weather days" and "delayed starts" that the schools have are driving me nuts!  I don't think I ever had a weather day in my life, and my son has had several closings and late starts in the past two weeks.  He's going to be in school until July at this rate!

Happy 2011!

legitimate work at from home jobs divider
Yet another year has come and gone in our lives.  Looking back on this past year, I definitely can't say that I accomplished everything I set out to, but I enjoyed 2010 none the less.  My search for legitimate work from home jobs and earning opportunities fell to the wayside as I dealt with other things - but I'm hoping to get back on track in 2011!

Here are my "Resolutions" for 2011 - (They're a lot less monetary and a lot more personal this year.):

1.  Be a better Wife!  Can't we all do a little something to be a better spouse... Like being more supportive, more positive or more affectionate?

2.  Be a better Mother!  With so much focus on working and finding legitimate work from home jobs and opportunities I often feel like I'm not spending enough time with our little one after he gets home from school, so it's time to change that!

3.  Be better to Myself!  This one should be on everyone's list, especially all the mothers out there.  With all

Happy Holidays!

This year has gone by so incredibly quickly!  I can't believe that we're already coming up on Christmas... As a matter of fact, it snuck up on me so badly that I fell victim to price gouging on a gift for our son.  What was it?  A Lego Harry Potter construction set of course!  Seriously, tiny little pieces of plastic are a lot more expensive than I remember them being.

Luckily I had enough gift cards from SwagBucks and iRazoo to make the purchase of a $40 set at 100% mark up without any actual out of pocket expenses.  The price has actually gone down since we got it, probably because there's less chance of it arriving before the holidays.  I also grabbed the Big Blue Book of Beginner Books and some Melissa and Douglas sticker books to add to the pile of presents that are waiting to be wrapped.  On the plus side, after this year I can guarantee that I won't ever put off buying something for Christmas because I think it's overpriced again!

Most of the other things we got were a bargain though, so I guess that helps to make up for it as well.  How about you guys?  Did you get any super deals or duds this year?

On a work related note, I've been applying like crazy for all sorts of positions.  It's always hard to get back into the game after you've faded out.  I did take on a mystery shopping position for one client, but the time to pay ratio was a bit sub par.  I'm determined to find something that pays well on an hourly basis - I just keep carrying on chanting like the Little Engine that Could!

SurveyHead is Still a Keeper

legitimate work at from home jobs divider
SurveyHead is one of the good eggs that I've kept in my basket from the start.  There are a lot of sites out there that offer compensation for taking free online surveys, and of all of them, Survey Head is definitely in my top 5.  I'll admit that I haven't paid much attention to the surveys recently, but I'm getting back on the ball again because the earning potential there is definitely worthwhile.

If you haven't signed up with SurveyHead, I'd definitely do so.  Between the end of September 2009 and the middle of December 2009, I managed to earn nearly $100 with Survey Head.  What's great is that even though I haven't been as active as I should have been, all of my earnings that I haven't cashed out are still there safe and sound with no deductions!  The site itself has also undergone a great makeover that makes everything really simple to keep up with.

Getting started is easy and you can start earning instantly, while fine tuning what surveys they send you - so that you don't get mismatched as often.  With these 3 simple steps, you'll be on your way...

Getting Caught Up...

legitimate work at from home jobs divider
Thanks so much for all the emails and comments!  I'm glad to be back, and I'm glad that you guys are glad I'm back!  My family has been cycling a terrible cold and cough for the past couple of weeks, hence the lack of activity on my part, but we seem to be in the clear again... *knock on wood*.

Having been gone for so long, I figure that now is as good a time as any to see what all of you ladies (and gents) are up to.  Have you found a great job or business that's helping you and your family?  A GPT with solid results and decent earning potential?  I want to know what's going on in your work at home world before I start boring you with mine ;)

In a nutshell though, I'm starting from scratch - luckily I have a few small eggs that are still snug in my basket, although some of my eggs have spoiled as well!

Back in the Saddle Again!

legitimate work at from home jobs divider

First of all, I want to apologize to all of my readers (and friends) who have been left hanging over these last couple of months.  What started off as an unannounced vacation at the request of my significant other quickly spiraled into an extended absence from the blog-o-sphere, but the good news is that I'm now back in the saddle and ready to start providing help and encouragement again!

Over the past several months I've been "taking it easy" on the monetary home front and have been dealing with family and health issues instead.  We suffered several family deaths this spring and summer, my grandmother is still struggling with various illnesses (but her spirits are high) and my parents separated in the blink of an eye when my mother picked up without warning and relocated.  To put it mildly, things have been rather interesting.

I'll be getting back into the swing of things again though, and Earning At Home will back in full swing in no time at all!

Things to look forward to:
A possible relocation of AtHomeEarning.com, we won't be changing our URL though!
Reviews of classic earning opportunities such as SwagBucks, iRazoo, SurveyHead and more!
Tips and bargains for the holidays...

March Earnings Breakdown

legitimate work at from home jobs divider

I didn't put in a lot of work last month because of my headaches and migraines, so I didn't make my goal, but I did decently overall.  I also dropped one client who required a lot of reminders to send me my weekly assignments, and constantly changed what they needed done... The money was good (usually around $100 a week), but the stress wasn't.

I also massively slacked off on another project throughout March because it's so tedious.  I'm trying to motivate myself to get to work on it right now, but it's obviously not going well hehe.
