Q-insights Online Learning Courses Research Pays $125


Q-insights is another company that I do research groups, focus groups, and online surveys to earn extra money.

They have a lot of stuff in South Orange County, and less often San Diego County. These days they are doing most of their studies online via chat or online surveys.

Right now Q-Insights is currently recruiting for an online study on the topic of online learning courses.

Q-insights is looking for males and females ages 18-75 that have taken a course on any of the following online learning sites in the past 12 months:

  • Alison
  • Coursera
  • LinkedIn Learning
  • MasterClass
  • Maven
  • MindValley
  • Monthly
  • Udacity
  • Udemy

Please note, if you are recruited, you will have to provide proof of the course you took with that program prior to your survey.

This is a 1-hour online interview that will pay you $125 for completion of the interview and a 15-minute pre-assignment.

Interviews are taking place July 20-28 at various times throughout the day.

If you are interested, please fill out the form here. 


Ch Ch Ch Changes…

Hey friends! If you are a long-time reader, you know that I’ve been talking about upcoming changes for about a month.

Spouse and I are getting a divorce. We are separating, and we’ve told the kids. This means a few things for the blog:

I need to look for more work that pays on a more consistent basis. I love blogging, sharing deals, sharing ways to make and save money, but it doesn’t make a lot of money. Side hustles are fun and a great way to make fun money, but it doesn’t provide enough money to pay the bills.

I’ll be posting as much as I can, and I may be posting more affiliate content to try and make a little more money while I look for employment outside the house. Clicking links in my blog posts is a small way you can help me. Especially the Freebie Friday links. I get paid a few cents for every link you click through on Freebie Friday posts. It’s not a lot, but it can add up. Plus it means cool freebies for you!

I may be posting more information on helping separating or single/divorced parents to help others in my position.

I may be posting more information on helping special needs parents/parents of children on the spectrum.

I am working on some other ways to bring in passive income that I may talk about on the blog as well. I’ve started a Redbubble store– I love journals, and I’m working on a line of my own.

I’ve also started at Etsy store to sell the printables I will be working on. For years I’ve been posting about everyone else’s printables, but using the ones I’ve made myself using various programs and software.

I will probably be posting longer, detailed posts about specific ways to save money.  I may also be sharing more deals and hauls on Social Media. Please follow me on Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, and Facebook, if you haven’t already.

I really appreciate my readers and social media followers. Without you, I’m just some weirdo posting photos and shouting into the void of the internet.

7/9/2021 Friday Freebies and Deals!

bright boxes

Good morning!

You know how there is one week per month where ALL THE THINGS HAPPEN? This week has been my July week of hellllll. Appointments every day, with most days having multiple appointments or errands in addition to all of the stuff that I do daily. I’m working on a lot of stuff behind the scenes and I’ll have some updates and posts next week with some awesome stuff to share with you.

As summer is upon us, here are a few freebies to keep your kiddos occupied and fed this summer:

If you are looking for birthday freebies, fret not! I put together a list new for 2021- Check it out here.

Most of these freebies and deals are online. While the State of California is open, I’m not recommending that we all pile into the car and hit the mall. Please remember that most states have not yet reached herd immunity rates. Be safe, be careful.
