Next, I have always been a frugal person with both my time and money. I believe to be successful, you must use your time wisely and if there are methods by which I can gain some revenue for the time spent online, then I definitely check it out.

In January of this year (2015) I discovered a little known rewards program that pays or rewards you to use the BING search engine.  If you are like me, Google has never offered to reward me for using their search engine so I signed up.  I will not go into a great deal of detail here but it makes 'common' sense to me to maximize your time (which is your most valuable asset!), especially when so much of it is spent online these days, both for business and personal.

If you use both Mobile and PC search you can earn up to $5 or $10 a month for time spent doing what you are already doing.  To me, this is a NO Brainer but some people will continue to send all their search data to Google who will happily use it to sell their advertising and earn their next Billion.  Yes, $5 or $10 a month isn't much, but it sure beats getting nothing.
