    My Swagbucks Story


    My Swagbucks Story

    Swagbucks asked me to share my Swagbucks story with you, so here it is:

    Back in 2008, I followed a now-defunct site that repeatedly mentioned receiving $5 Amazon gift cards from Swagbucks. Intrigued, I checked it out and then joined … yes, nearly 10 years ago!

    Swagbucks was so different back then – you didn’t earn points called SB, instead their currency was “Swag Bucks.” They changed the terms a few years ago for legal reasons, and I think it makes things easier and clearer. Each Swag Buck was worth more than the current SB, so you could get a $5 Amazon gift card for 45 Swag Bucks. I’ve gotten so used to how things are now, so it’s weird to go back to my original Swagbucks review and read what things were like in the beginning!

    Fast forward through nine years, multiple iterations of Swagbucks, and approximately $7,000 later* … and I still make FREE money from Swagbucks every day. You can read how I earn at least a few SB every day here.

    I love redeeming my SB for Amazon gift cards, but you can redeem SB for gift cards to use at Starbucks, iTunes, Target, Home Depot and so many other stores, and you can even get cash via Paypal! Best of all, you don’t have to spend a dime to earn FREE money, and you can do it on your schedule, when it’s convenient for you.

    If you’re new to Swagbucks, you can earn up to a 500 SB bonus if you join right now! Earn 300 SB before the end of the month for a 300 SB bonus. Spend at least $25 through Swagbucks Shop and earn the shopping SB before July 1 to get an extra 200 SB. That’s a bonus 500 SB, or a FREE $5 gift card! As always, thank you if you join(ed) Swagbucks using my referral link!

    *Swagbucks says I’ve earned 767,864 SB total, but because of all of the changes over the years, I don’t know exactly how much that works out to. But I think $7,000 is a bit on the conservative side!

    Eight Wardrobe Staples For Every Mom


    The following is a post from Leona Jones. Consideration was received for the editing and publishing of this post.

    Whether you’re a stay-at-home mom, a work-from-home mom, or you work in an office, it’s important to have a few basic pieces of clothing that are appropriate for everyday life. From heading to the park with the kids to going to a wedding on the weekend, you should be able to feel comfortable and confident in your clothing choices.

    Jeans That Fit Well

    If you’re tired of wearing ill-fitting and baggy jeans (commonly known as “mom jeans”), it’s time to upgrade to a different pair. A pair of well-fitting jeans that you feel comfortable in is vital to have for a large number of occasions, from a casual day at work to running errands with the kids. Whether you choose dark wash, light wash, or a fun color like pastel pink, a good pair of jeans should be in every mom’s closet.

    Embellished Tank Top

    As the hot summer months quickly approach, you’re probably already feeling a little on the warm side when you’re outside with the kids. To feel cute and feminine while staying cool, pick up a few embellished tank tops that you can pair with jeans, capris, or shorts. An embellished tank top adorned with jewels or intricate embroidery is a fun way to dress up any outfit while still staying casual.

    Black Dress

    For occasions when you need to look polished and professional, you can’t go wrong with the classic black dress. If you’d like to browse a large selection of black dresses in a variety of cuts, lengths, and materials, check out This company has a black dress to suit any woman’s style at a reasonable price. Once you’ve settled on the perfect dress (or two), you can accessorize with neutral-toned pumps or kick it up a notch with a pop of color.

    Soft Cardigan

    If you work in an office every day, you might find that it’s a little cooler than you’d like, especially during the summer months when you’re rocking a cute tank top. To avoid breaking out the overly heavy winter clothes, invest in a cotton or cashmere cardigan. Cardigans are ideal to have in your closet for all seasons, and they’re versatile enough to wear on a variety of occasions. From neutrals like dove gray and navy to something more playful like hot pink and sky blue, it’s always handy to have a few cardigans in your wardrobe.

    Classic Oxford Shirt

    As a mom, you might feel like your closet is lacking in comfortable yet professional clothes that you can wear every day. If you’re tired of wearing yoga pants and tees to run errands and meet up with friends, consider purchasing at least one classic Oxford shirt. Whether you choose timeless white or soft blue, Oxford shirts look great tucked into a pair of jeans, white capris, or a pencil skirt for a polished look that feels effortless.

    Neutral Pumps

    When need to find a pair of shoes for a date or a formal event like a wedding, it can be difficult to find the ideal pair to go with your outfit. When you’re pressed for time and you don’t have more than just a couple of minutes to select a pair of shoes from your closet, make sure that you’re ready with a pair of neutral-colored pumps. Pumps in cream, beige, and black are the perfect choice to have in your closet, as they’ll go with virtually every outfit. From professional events to fun nights out on the town, your neutral pumps have you covered for any occasion.

    Pencil Skirt

    For the days when you need to look polished and pressed for a work conference or a meeting at your children’s school, it can be tough to find the right outfit for the occasion. When you want to look polished but not too formal, a pencil skirt is always helpful to have. A dark colored pencil skirt like charcoal or black looks excellent when paired with an oxford shirt and neutral heels, and you can soften the look with colorful jewelry.

    Leather Handbag

    Living life as a mom can get messy and hectic. When you need a cute bag that will last for years while still looking great, always opt for leather. This material is long lasting and never goes out of style, so you can enjoy a classic leather handbag for years to come.
