Convert Boredom into Money!

My number one tip for when it comes to entertaining oneself and combating boredom is to spend the time online earning money as your browse.

I do the bulk of this through Swagbucks.

Swagbucks is a site whereby you earn points by doing things online. Be it using their search engine to search for everyday things, answer surveys, take part in daily polls, watch their TV station or shop using their shop and earn program, you're never short of ways to make points.

Your points can be transferred into gift cards for the likes of Amazon, Paypal, Argos, John Lewis, TK Max and more. What's even better is Swagbucks offer different denominations for said gift cards so you choose when to cash out. Be it £5 in paypal payment or save £50 worth of points to swap for an Amazon voucher to help towards Christmas.

It's up to you how much time you spend accumulating and earning points. I haven't put much effort into it this year as of yet but I'm only a couple of hundred points short of a £15 amazon gift certificate and I can earn those tonight if I put an hour or so into answering some surveys or letting the Swagbucks TV app run whilst I make dinner :)

What have you got to loose? If you don't like it you can simply forget about it and follow another tip to ease any boredom you may be facing :)

I may see you on Swagbucks :)
