Summer break is here! So, with some extra time this summer, I plan on focusing a lot of my time on trying to make some money from home. How you ask? Paid surveys and offers. I will update my progress weekly so you can see how profitable (or not) each of these companies are. If you can recommend any that I have missed, please let me know about them. Come back next Saturday to track my progress!
