My Review of the Star Wars Journal

The Star Wars Vadar Journal is a perfect gender neutral gift for a Stars Wars fan in your life. It's a 6 X 8 Journal with plain white lined pages inside. The interior page flaps have gray star wars graphics. The cover is black on the back and has a silver embossed Vadar graphic on the front. It's far cooler in person as the picture doesn't really do the embossing justice. It's an inexpensive, but impressive little gift for a teen or super Star Wars fan in your life.

11 Online Jobs for High School Students This Summer

jobs for teens


Can my high school student work from home online?



Yes, your kid can work online! There are many online companies that have minimum age requirements of 13 or 14. If you live in a small town or a town saturated with kids working locally already, you can get your kid some extra cash this summer with work right on their computer, where they probably want to be anyway!

Jingit - Most offers with Jingit are cashback from shopping, however, if you check in daily for surveys, you can also get points for answering market research surveys.

Inbox Dollars - This one requires you to be 18 years old, but it’s a great way for Seniors to pad their
wallet a little since this one pays CASH for surveys, not points.

Harris Panel - With Harris Panel, your teens can earn points for surveys they can later redeem for things like Amazon Gift Cards and you only have to be 13 years old for this one!

Ipsos I-Says - You only have to be 14 to join I-Says and you can redeem the points at this site for gift cards or cash so you have options.

U-Haul Customer Service - This is a legit job for teens online. U-Haul hires customer service workers online as young as 16 years old. This a great way to get some real world customer service experience on their resumes as well develop some customer service skills.

Helium - If you are a teen that loves writing, Helium has a great opportunity to build your writing portfolio. Helium pays for content writing and you can be as young as 13 years old. Of course they are looking for professional quality, so make sure you proofread those sample articles!

Enroll - Enroll is the first service I’ve every seen that allows teens to tutor teens. Most online tutoring sites require a Masters Degree or at least a Bachelors to work for them. This one allows teens to join so they can take their tutoring services out of the school library and expand them online for more cash.

Youtube - Youtube is actually an extremely popular way for teens to make money online. An outgoing teen with a dynamic personality and a lot of creativity can make decent money making Youtube videos and monetizing them. Popular teen channels are in gaming, beauty, DIY and crafts and vlogging.

Fivver - Fivver is great for adults, but also for teens! Fivver allows anyone to get started offering their services with very little start up time and no start-up money! Fivver gets paid only when someone buys your services. You can offer anything from Photoshop to talking puppet videos.


Post Intelligence  - Allows teens to make money for doing their favorite thing, interacting on social media. It’s not a lot of cash, but it can add up based on activity.

Why I love BOXED and Why You Should Too

boxed package


I just bought a house in the country and shopping has become either an online effort or a long drive to town. I’ve been looking up ways to purchase things cheaply online that will be delivered straight to my door. I came across boxed on a Facebook ad. I’ve seen it before, but I always thought it looked too good to be true. I’ve placed several orders now and I can tell you, it really is great!

Boxed is an online site for bulk grocery shopping. You can purchase everything from Peanut Butter to Batteries. Boxed has amazing prices, free shipping, samples with every order and sometimes free full-size products! The prices are lower than my local big box store and the products come right to my door.

Some of my favorite items that I purchase are Kickstart Energy drinks at 30-50% less than my local store, snack bags of chips at 25% less than standard retail and AA and AAA batteries at 77% less than retail!

I have a coupon link for you! If you use this link for your first order you’ll get $15 off!
