My credit card rewards

December 23rd, 2016 at 09:12 pm

I earned $610 in credit card rewards this year. It wasn't really something I was focused on (or needed to focus on) while I was working, although now it would be more helpful to do so.

I've been eating a lot of arugula salads lately with lots of chopped raw onion, raw broccoli, nuts and seeds.

It's incredible how quickly the day goes and I don't get done what I wanted to do. I DID go grocery shopping, take a longish walk (50 min) and apply for a few freelance writing jobs. Yesterday I vacuumed and met dad for lunch. I'm starting to get sleepy again around 2 pm and sometimes I take a nap. Not good!

I feel like I'm wasting lots of time at the computer...Facebook especially, where there are a few groups I like to follow. I need to wean myself away from it. I love answering personal finance questions.

The education website I've been writing for pays very quickly. It's remote deposit into my checking account and the money's there within days of my turning in an assignment. Nice. I hope to have another one to do on Monday but I'm still looking for other freelance jobs to supplement this or possibly replace it if they pay better.

I applied for one job writing for a furniture company that sells on Amazon. I'd love to write for them! Writing for Amazon would look great on the resume.

    Nice credit card rewards total. At times I spend too much time on Facebook so occasionally will have a month where every 3 or 4 days I will write in my calendar that it's a Facebook free day and stick to it. Nobody notices if you take a day off and it's good to go back to habits I had before Facebook. We didn't always have constant computer access once upon a time and we functioned just fine. It's great to have a break.

    One of my favorite salads is arugula, onion, blue cheese and buffalo chicken with a garlic dressing! Yum! I think you're still making good progress, and this time of year, not much is getting done, so enjoy a few days off!

    If any of you live near central Ohio and want free arugula plants, hit me up in spring. My plant has gone crazy with seeds and I have way more plants than I can ever eat!

    I don't know if any of these would appeal to you or not, but one might ...
