EF Update and SB Thoughts

July 25th, 2013 at 10:14 pm

Today is the auto transfer of $10 to savings. That brings the Emergency Fund to $5481.64.

I haven't been doing much on my Swagbucks the last couple days. Yesterday's goal was ridiculous. Dunno if I'll bother with today's either. Since they changed the Encrave offerings so you have to stay on the page the entire time it's running and can't do two or three things at once I've decided it's too much of a time waster.

Half the time when I do a SB search it tries to download a Trojan (SB is bad for this). Half of the videos don't even load even though I consistently update my flash player. It's getting so it is not worth the hassle. So I'm just passively running SBTV on the side of my page and periodically checking for codes. I'll put in the minimum effort to get my $25 in gift cards each month, but if they are going to make it too hard and too time consuming I may give up on those, too.

    Yes, I've been avoiding some of those things too, or I'll jump up and do a task while some of them run. One video for 2SBs was 4 minutes today and you had to watch the whole thing! I'm not a fan of one of the Blip TV things because of some of the content. Ick.

    Your EF is looking great!!

    Thanks. It is nice seeing the total go up.

    Yeah, some of the content lately has been driving me crazy. It's either tasteless, stupid, or somewhat dirty. If I have to hear that stupid goat in that Taylor Swift video parady again...Sometimes you can't hit the mute button fast enough. I do, however, now know about 400 different ways to paint my fingernails. Rolleyes

    I think SBs have been harder to earn now a days as well. I have not been meeting my goals since last week.

    I can't remember the last time I had the volume on for SB! The long videos make me go unload the dishwasher or start a load of laundry. Gingham hearts for your fingernails?

  5. LuckyRobin Says:

    LOL, yeah, gingham hearts. Although my favorite was the Thanksgiving turkeys. Sometimes I have the volume on because I am watching a DVD and am trying to keep the other stuff muted.
