1. Don’t Buy Knock Offs:
We’ve all bin there, standing in the aisle, with two options in front of us, a quality name brand product or a knock off product for half the price. The half price item is overwhelmingly tempting, after all it is the same thing just a different brand right, WRONG. These knock off brand products are made with much cheaper materials and are poorly constructed. You will end up back at the store buying the knock off brand time and time again after each one breaks until you finally buy the name brand and your kicking yourself for all the money you wasted by trying to save money. For example, I was at the store trying to buy a phone charger. The name brand charger was $30 bucks, what moron would buy that when there a dozens of cheaper options, I thought to myself. I went with the $8 dollar box that came with 2 chargers and walked away confident I made the smart choice. A week later both chargers had snapped off at the tip. Now I had to go back to the store, and spend more of my time and money on this problem that I could have solved already. Don’t be me and spend good money the first time and never look back.
2. Always Ask For Coupons:
Couponing can be a time consuming process, that many of us busy bees aren’t willing to spend time on. It can be annoying to navigate the soup of deals at stores and it all seems purposely hard to grapple with. Why can’t stores just automatically give all their customers the best deal. Stores purposely make it hard for everyone to find the best deal in an attempt to separate price conscious customers from less frugal ones. The people not willing to do the work to find the deal will pay full price and the people only willing to purchase the product with a sale will find the deal and make the purchase. This is what economists call a separating equilibrium, which allows the store to get the most our of ever customer. But there is a simple and easy way around the retail stores games. Once you get to the counter simply ask the clerk if there are any coupons or deals, most stores policy is that they have to give you the coupon or deal. Even if you didn’t do the work to find the coupon and align your purchases to the best deals you still get the best possible price! There is almost always a deal purposely hidden for only price conscious consumers to find, but with a simple ask, all consumers can easily get sale prices on their items. So next time your watching that clerk ring up your items, don’t be afraid to ask him to reduce the price, most of the time they will.

There are several options for survey companies within Zap Surveys, and each of them have different advantages and disadvantages. In this article we take a deep dive into the pros and cons for all the survey options in Zap Surveys, so you can choose the perfect survey that’s right for you!
1. Tap Research
Tap Research is the biggest survey company out there right now, which means they have the largest amount of surveys available for you to take. This increases the likelihood that you will find high-paying surveys, as well as find multiple surveys that you qualify for. It’s also easy to search for surveys within the app - you can search for surveys by best match, length, or by amount of money you can earn. These factors place Tap Research as the #1 survey platform for you to use on Zap Surveys!
2. Peanut Labs
Peanut Labs is a great option for taking surveys! It often has a wide variety of surveys available, and stores information from surveys you take to better match you to other surveys in the future. Peanut Labs also donates a small portion of funds from each survey taken to help fight against child hunger.
Pollfish gives you a blanket introductory survey when you first use it to help you find the best surveys. Pollfish is a great option to get paid for your opinion, however they suffer from lack of survey inventory in comparison to Tap Research and Peanut Labs, so there may not always be a good survey available for you to take.

1. Buy and Sell on 2nd Hand Sites
In everything you buy you have to consider its resale value on second hand sites like Craigslist, LetGo, Ebay, and Offer Up. On many of your purchases you can recoup 50 to 75 percent of the cost on one of these cites, even after years of use. Many of us get attached to things that we never use, and it can cripple our freedom. A wise man once told me, “You don’t control things, things control you”. Not only are these sites and apps great for selling our unused items but they can also save us a ton when we want to buy new things. You would be surprised how many near new items are being sold on these sites for half their retail price.
2. Work for On-Demand Labor Employers
Uber, Lyft, PostMates, Bird, Wag all of these companies have tapped into the newest labor market, the on-demand labor force that has generated billions for those smart enough to wield it. These are great for diversifying your income. Many Companies have tapped into the Side Hustle labor market and changed entire industries by doing so. Once you have signed up you can do jobs for these employers WHEREVER AND WHENEVER you want. I emphasize wherever and whenever because there has never in history been an actual employer that allows its employee to earn in this way. Most Employment opportunities require huge sacrifices that inhibit you from being able to earn money in other ways, but On-demand work requires almost no sacrifices so that you can stay at the ready to jump on other opportunities when they show themselves
