    Thomas Cook going into Administration!

    I just can't believe it! They've been around since FOREVER. All they have to do is sell rooms in resorts that they don't own for a profit (or seats on planes!) I imagine there is going to be a lot of upset from this. I know the MAIN time these companies actually make money in May-September...

    IFF Research - Anyone done any work for them?

    https://www.iffresearch.com/join-our-interviewer-team/ Customer Service work from home type stuff.. I did their 'video interview' tonight. Honestly, I can't tell if the work is just telephone interviews or video ones like you would do for clients on Respondent. I don't THINK it's cold...

    Is it fair to say the high street is done for now then?

    I would say that we are NEVER going to go back to 'how it used to be'. More and more shops shut up, what a city centre is in 2019 is NOW what it was in 2000 at all! It's all about places to eat, places offering experiences (crazy golf, escape rooms, cinemas etc) Can anyone see it going back...

    Why are there not more sites like TopCashBack, QuidCo, OhMyDosh..

    I've been looking into these sites a lot more recently to get a handle on how they work and make their money and basically it's all just affiliate marketing on steroids Take OhMyDosh for example. You can literally hover your money over the links on their website and see the URL they are going...

    I think we might be about to see the end of super cheap web hosting you know!

    Most people who have a website hosted will be aware of CPanel. Some hosting companies have their own 'built in' control panel for organising your hosting but cPanel is used a LOT. GoDaddy have a built in one and make you pay extra for CPanel. The advantage for a lot of people who go self hosted...

    It's only 20 weeks until Christmas so...

    What are we all going to be doing to ramp up our online earnings before the big day? For me, I'm trying to do as much Respondent / Testing Time work as I can earn a good few hundred from those alone for minimal time! Then, of course, the Football is back so I'll keep on top of my accas and...

    Is this the end of extreme Couponing in the UK?

    I seem to be seeing less and less online about couponing when it comes to getting money off your shopping in store HollyVloggs who used to be all over that scene even says it’s pretty much over Are you finding it isn’t as popular or as easy to do as it once was? It’s not something I’ve...

    What's your limit when it comes to 'Jobs around the house' that need doing?

    I tend to peak at building flat pack furniture. I'm absolutely fine with an electric screwdriver and an Allen key! Can build anything so long as I can follow the instructions! I remember amazing myself when I figured out how to rotate the valve correctly to put water into the boiler! But when...

    Using The Pomodoro technique to be more productive (and earn more money!)

    Anyone used this system before? I know @katykicker swears by it but i'm just looking into it to see how it could help me. Basically it involved breaking up your tasks into 25 minute chunks (with a 5-minute break at the end) . So you could say 'I'm going to spend 25 minutes doing surveys' or...

    Making Friends as an adult is kind of tough!

    It's pretty tough, isn't it! Unless you are still hanging out with people you knew from school or college or whatever its basically works friends or nothing.. This has become very clear to me now I'm self-employed which is why I'm desperate to jump into some sporting hobbies that are more 'team...

    People losing money on fake holiday websites!

    I was watching This Morning on Friday (I know it's sad but there ya go!) and it had a family on there who had lost £££ by booking on a 'dave's villas' type website that asked for something like £4000 upfront and they paid it without any due diligence and then turned up in the south of France and...

    Have you ever been on a cruise?

    Are they any good or just full of 'the old folk' so to speak as that is my general impression of them!! I remember many episodes of 'wish you were here' with Judith Charmers where she would rave about them! They seem SO EXPENSIVE but people I used to work with would rave about the fact it was...

    How often do you clean your house?

    We tend to be a 'as and when' kind of family now. When we had a kid at home it used to be every weekend but now we have a much more 'meh' policy when it comes to cleaning (side note: we actually do have cleaners that come every other week!) I remember growing up my parents used to just do a...

    Has anyone gone back into education as a mature adult?

    and by mature I mean above say 24 lol I've been thinking about new skills I'd like to learn. Been thinking about doing a course on some basic plumbing and maybe plastering as I figure those are two skills which I could actually put to use at home! I don't want to earn any money or anything...

    Is there something wrong with me?

    I am beginning to wonder! I just don't seem to be able to do the things that others I see online ( and in real life! ) do to save money. Change energy suppliers - Too much faff Organise a water meter - Took me about 4 months PPI Claims - Were like pulling teeth with me Getting a new boiler...

    What drove you into getting interested in earning money online?

    I was thinking about this the other day, what actually got you into looking into earning money from home. Was it curiosity, or was it driven by a need to earn some serious cash? For me, It was a mixture of both. I started looking into Surveys and was GOBSMACKED when I earned £10 from Valued...
