I am often asked “Are there any legitimate ways that I can work with that will earn me some extra cash?” and the answer is yes there are, but they are hard to find. So below I have compiled a list of opportunities that I PERSONALLY take advantage of and use to earn extra cash and get free products from. Now let me state this disclaimer, you will not get rich off of these opportunities, these are purely opportunities that you can use to help you supplement your frugal shopping fund. I typically save the money I get from these networks and put them into my Black Friday Shopping Fund. If you have any questions about these opportunities, please don’t hesitate to ask, in the meantime have fun and enjoy the extra money you make.
