Earning Cash

Today I’m going to share a story about my sisters and I earning some cash together.

This took place back in the early nineties. I was about twelve or thirteen years old.

It was a hot and sultery Manitoba summer as usual. I was bored and needed something to do. Although I typicaly liked watching movies in the cool basement, I didn’t have money to rent a movie, and was bored of the movies we had. Coming from a single parent home, and my mother working two jobs just to make ends meet, I had to fund my own ‘fun’. So I went around the neighborhood knocking on doors.

Okay, lets rewind a bit, I went over to one neighbors house. She was a schoolmate and a friend. Her and I put our heads together and pondered on how to earn our own cash. She came up with the idea of baking cookies and selling them. That turned out to be a dead end road for us. She dropped out of the ‘team’ and I went solo with another idea. 🍪💵

I went door to door and asked if they wanted their yard work done. A few yards later I came home grinning wide with some cash in hand.

My sisters asked me where I got the cash. I told them about my yard work gigs and they asked if they could join me. I heartily agreed and the three of us happily worked on a few more yards.

The last gig together was our neighbour across the street. We all raked the leaves together and when they were all ready, the guy helped us bag them. He even took us with him on a journey to the dump. when we arrived back ‘home’ I felt I should thank him, but didn’t know how to with out it sounding weird. So I resorted to bluntness, as I often did. ‘Thanks for taking us to the dump’. Came my reply. 🤔

I heard later how he was very amused by that. 😁

Cash in hand, the three of us sauntered to the movie rental place, put our heads together in agreement with three movies and snacks.

One of the movies was Arachnophobia. In a nutshell it was about spiders. And we were all creeped out, as none of us like spiders. I guess that was just our way of getting our thrill for the day.

Watching my sisters intently, I would go over and lightly tickle their skin, and watched them wiggle with fright. They would then do the same to me.😧😂

Hi this is Yala; this is not my given name, it’s my nickname I acquired as a child. People eventually stopped calling me this, but I wanted to revive it. It was a sentimental name for me. That’s why you’ll see some areas that’ll say Yala, and others Sarah. Sarah is my given name. I have attempted to do blogging before, and even some online stores, but then they became inactive when I got really busy. I was helping my mate with his roofing and painting business. I enjoyed it for a time. But now I feel called to do something else. There are a number of things I want to pursue, one of them is blogging. Writing is ultimately what I want to do, and with blogging I get to do just that. I spend a lot of time researching GPT sites, and survey sites. Mostly finding them and trying them out to see how they deliver, and how user friendly they are. If they look like spam or if they look like someone cares. And then I put them on this site. I do one at a time so that I don’t run out of material. And so I can write more about them. You might not see as much sophistication here as you would other sites because that’s not who I am. That’s not part of my ‘DNA’. If I can make this fun for you to read and encourage you to try out the sites suggested I’ll have reached my goal, ‘partially’. The other part of reaching my goal is when you are helped, and make some money on these sites, or are able to receive gift cards or something. If you can gain from these sites, then I’ll have gained from them too. It might look like I’m just in it for the money, but that’s not it. If that was the end all be all for me I wouldn’t give these sites the time of day. As they don’t pay a lot. However, everyone shops, and games was one of the most searched words when I checked, some of these sites have games you can play and get rewarded. Many people like watching videos, why not get paid for it? Why not get paid for things you do anyway? I might get further in my rewards with you starting out using links and codes I provide, I do need to make some money too, who doesn’t? My goal is to help other people while I help myself. I love making a difference in peoples lives. I’m not here to sing my own praises, I get the best praises from Jesus, my saviour. I just want to reassure that I’m never going to spam you with the deliberate intention to do so, I’m never going to do anything harmful to anyone with the deliberate intention to do so. I really care about people. And I rejoice when I’ve done something to make someones life at least a little bit better than it was before. I pray for your success on these sites and apps. Thank you for reading this and visiting this blog.
