Rained in? Plans ruined? Get paid for taking surveys
Sometimes, Mother Nature's plans don't necessarily coincide with your own. Whether you were planning a trip to the beach, a woodland hike or a game of basketball down at the neighborhood park, doing any of these activities doesn't sound as appealing when there's a torrential downpour thrown in the mix. So what are you left to do? Mope around and be unproductive? Instead of staring hopelessly out the windows in a vain attempt to wish the rain away, you could visit Opinion Outpost and get paid for taking surveys.
A good option for all you "entrepreneurs"
For (relatively) broke college students, the term "entrepreneur" may be used quite liberally. In a nutshell, many of these young academics associate the word with anybody who finds a way to earn a quick buck. When you're up to your eyeballs in debt and there's a very little amount of time you can spend away from a project or study session, selling hand-me-down clothes, peddling old books, or even whittling tobacco pipes offers a way for university attendees to make some cash.
Where do you sell these wares? Outside in the quad, of course! It's certainly a shame that a monsoon has hit campus. Yet, you still can't deny the fact that you're in some need of some cold, hard cash. If you're looking for a way to make some dough, Opinion Outpost can help you out. The website offers participants the chance to take surveys for money, allowing members to redeem points through PayPal accounts or iTunes and Amazon gift cards.
Day at the park gone kaput? No problem!
For stay-at-home parents, it's quite dismaying to look outside and see dark clouds expelling what seems like buckets of water. Those plans of bringing the kids to the park to blow off some steam are pretty much dashed. Of course - for whatever reason - children seem to love playing in the rain and rolling around in the wet grass and mud.
However, standing in the cold, relentless downpour, watching your offspring soil their clothes (which you will proceed to scrub relentlessly upon returning home) doesn't sound so appealing. Worst of all: Do you think they're going to remove their apparel before entering the house? They'll probably just plop themselves on the nearest couch and smile adoringly at you.
So what is there left to do? Taking some time to make money online from home doesn't sound too bad. Hand your kids a couple of children's books (I'd recommend "Harry Potter" - they eat that stuff up) or set them up in front of the TV and log on to Opinion Outpost. If you're looking for a leisurely way to make some easy cash, setting aside the day to shut yourself in from the pouring rain to take some surveys isn't such a bad idea. After you're through, you'll probably be able to buy some music on iTunes or the latest Stephen King novel from Amazon.
