If you are looking to increase your earning potential or simply add a few extra dollars to your pocket for a vacation, the holidays, the kids birthdays, etc. I have a few tips.

It is important to find a place to store your savings. Before you start saving, one thing I suggest you do is open a PayPal account. Many online companies will want to pay you via check or PayPal.

I store money in my PayPal account separate from my banking account as a way to stash money. This makes it easy for me to not become tempted to use the money for other things.It is a great way to save money for Christmas shopping, vacations, or just savings. Once after you have decided how you would like to receive your payment it is time to start earning.
