1. First thing in the morning I get the daily poll out of my way! It doesn't take very much time at all to do it.

Under the Answer button in the drop down, click on Daily Polls, and click on the answer you want. The click on the Vote button. A pop up will tell you that you won 1 point. I do not do- the watch a video to get 2 more. It takes too much of my time!

2. The second way to earn quickly is with the NOSO-

Go to the Discover tab  on the top bar, in the drop down, click on NOSO.

Click on the round red button that says Start Earning Now

You will have several pages come up. You do not have to enter any of your information. (I encourage you not to or you will get alot of spam from these companies.) Scroll to the bottom of the page until you see Skip or See Next Offer like the pictures below show.

Click on those buttons and do the same on each new page until you come to a page similar to this below. Follow the directions to answer it. There is a hint to help you solve it on the bottom right if you need it. Click the Submit button.

Then you will get a page notifying you that you won 2 points for doing the NOSO path. Takes just a few seconds to click through to the end!!

3. You can get Swagbucks by searching for anything and it will randomly give you Swagbucks. Search first thing in the morning until you win, again around noon, and in the evening. I search for things when I'm waiting on the car's oil change, or for my husband to finish his shopping, etc.

Some people use it for anything they search online. I have found that name brand things starting with capital letters will quicker give me Swagbucks. Others say things written in a question form will give you Swagbucks. I will search for something on the web and then click images on the left for the same search. I will sometimes get Swagbucks for it in images and not in the web search! In the picture below I searched for fuzzy aloe socks and won 8 swagbucks!

A popup will pop up to let you know you earned Swagbucks but you need to enter a case sensitive word so they know you aren't a robot.

Then the completed notification pops up!

4. I also earn Swagbucks by friending Swagcodez on facebook and they will give you links of where to find Swagbucks in your Facebook News Feed. 

 photo b661ca43-90e5-4e83-8160-f3d38186e7b7_zps0521c294.jpg

In my Facebook News Feed was this link:

and the link sent me here:

 photo 2e0735a4-ce0c-4d8b-af86-5be9bc5f3140_zps1d6b08dc.jpg

Copy the Swag code and paste it in the Enter Swag Code box that drops down when you click on the wheel looking thing to the left of the green box that shows how many Swagbucks you have. In the top right of the blue bar.

Or it could be one that sends you to the blog to get all of it like this one below:

I clicked on the Blog link and it took me to the Swagbucks blog. Search through the writing for something that looks like this.

 photo 6b_zps750c5771.png

Choose which one you want and copy and paste it into the drop down box when you click on the wheel looking thing to the left of the green box that shows how many Swagbucks you have. In the top right of the blue bar.

*********************************************************************
5. The fifth way to earn Swagbucks is to watch the Swagbucks TV. Well, I don't have time to watch the videos so I just get one started, turn the computer volume off and let it play as I do my housework or other computer work.

My son will keep the Swagbucks TV going as he does school. Clicking on the next one as he is working. He just keeps the volume off so he doesn't have to listen to it!


Edited: They have changed this section a bit. I'm not going to upload new pics. It now looks like this at the top-

Every once in a while I click to that page and if the meter has moved up I click on the next video until I win points! Then I start it on another round of "watching"!

 photo 69e23c4a-4bdc-4615-a17d-7019094917c9_zps3daee784.jpg



You can only "watch" a video once in a day. If you've already viewed one, then this will pop up to tell you!

************************************************************************

6. The final but easiest way to earn Swagbucks is by inviting your friends to sign up under your referral. You win matching Swagbucks per their Swagbucks for the first 1000 Swagbucks they win. You don't have to do any work!

So here's my referral for you to sign up! 

http://www.swagbucks.com/refer/TinaJewel

You win Swagbucks points that can be exchanged for free stuff! My favorite way to redeem my points is for 450 points you can get $5 Amazon gift cards that I then use to buy stuff from Amazon that I really want! You can get stuff totally free this way! LOVE it!

(There are other ways to win by doing the Swagstakes but they use your points and just maybe you will win. I never do those as it's too much a gamble.
There are games to play too but not worth my time!)


10 Reasons Why You Should Drink Hot Lemon Water in the Morning



"10 Reasons Why You Should Drink Hot  Lemon Water in the Morning."

1. Boosts your immune system: Lemons are high in vitamin C, which is great for fighting colds.  They’re high in potassium, which stimulates brain and nerve function. Potassium also helps control blood pressure.

2. Balances pH: Drink lemon water everyday and you’ll reduce your body’s overall acidity. Lemon is one of the most alkaline foods around. Yes, lemon has citric acid but it does not create acidity in the body once metabolized.

3. Helps with weight loss:   Lemons are high in pectin fiber, which helps fight hunger cravings. It also has been shown that people who maintain a more alkaline diet (see #2 ) lose weight faster.

4. Aids digestion:  Lemon juice helps flush out unwanted materials. It encourages the liver to produce bile which is an acid that required for digestion. Efficient digestion reduces heartburn and constipation.

5. Is a diuretic: Lemons increase the rate of urination in the body, which helps purify it. Toxins are, therefore, released at a faster rate which helps keep your urinary tract healthy.

6. Clears skin:  The vitamin C component helps decrease wrinkles and blemishes. Lemon water purges toxins from the blood which helps keep skin clear as well. It can actually be applied directly to scars to help reduce their appearance.

7. Freshens breath: Not only this, but it can help relieve tooth pain and gingivitis. The citric acid can erode tooth enamel, so you should monitor this. I admit, I’m slightly worried about it.

8. Relieves respiratory problems: Warm lemon water helps get rid of chest infections and halt those pesky coughs. It’s thought to be helpful to people with asthma and allergies too.

9. Keeps you zen: Vitamin C is one of the first things depleted when you subject your mind and body to stress. As mentioned previously, lemons are chock full of vitamin C.

10. Helps kick the coffee habit:  After I have a glass of hot lemon water, I actually don’t crave coffee in the morning. This is weird, I can’t explain it, but I’ll take it.

The one thing I couldn’t find a concrete answer for is why the water has to be hot. Having studied Chinese Medicine, I can only assume that cold water likely provides a shock or stress factor to the body. It takes energy for your body to process cold and really hot water, believe it or not. I asked BluePrintCleanse how much lemon the recommend you put in your water. They suggested just a wedge or 1/8 of a lemon.

Tip:  Drink your warm lemon water in coffee cups that has coffee or tea stains.  The lemon water will help remove them.

Tip:  Grind the used lemon rinds in your garbage disposal to help deodorize it.
