You can lose minutes, if not hours, to the internet. One click leads you on another adventure, and by the time you’ve shut off your screen, it’s full of the breeding habits of tapirs rather than the opening times of your local store that you had intended to find. It’s a bit of a vortex that we, as a race, seem to get trapped in – but a fun one at that. But instead of using it for information and social media, how about finding something that will be rewarding to you – either personally or financially – to help your day go a bit quicker?

Be My Eyes

Be My Eyes is an app that is downloaded straight to your phone. As a registered user, you will be on call to help those with poor or no vision to be able to live their lives. It could be something as simple as letting them know which colour blouse they’re picking out, or may take a bit more time such as  helping them find their keys to let themselves out of the house. It’s a lifeline to so many that are registered blind.


A couple of minutes each day entering sweepstakes at sites such as http://www.sweepstakesdaily.com/hgtv-sweepstakes/ will only end in one of two results: nothing at all happening, or you walking away with dream prizes. There are people who have made their livings by entering any and all sweepstakes that are available to them, and at the end of the day, it’s something for nothing. All you have to do is enter your details and click a couple of times.

Friend Forums

There are communities set up for those who aren’t able to make friends easily in the outside world, or just who aren’t in the right state of mind to be able to do so. There are sites such as Friends In Need and certain Facebook groups which all have people on at any time of the day just looking for somebody to chat to. It doesn’t take much to say hello to somebody and ask them how they’re doing – you could be the only person that they’ve spoken to that day.


Surveys and online quizzes are now becoming more legitimate, and the market research companies behind them are desperate for users to fill them in. For most of the sites, such as http://www.swagbucks.com, you get points for each survey that you take which then total up to an amount that you can exchange for cash, items or anything else that’s on offer.


If you know your way around a dictionary and are hot on your grammar and punctuation, you could offer your proofreading skills to those in need. College students and other professionals are always on the lookout for people who could read through their work and offer advice. If you want to lend a helping hand, you don’t have to charge for it – but it could become quite a lucrative little business for you if you decide to.
