Cash Crate

Being a full-time homemaker is great but, unfortunately it does not pay well. Some people will argue that it pays in love, but love doesn’t buy groceries. I’ve found myself lately wanting to make an extra bit of cash on the side. I had previously looked into doing online survey’s through multiple different sites,with some luck but, nothing consistent. Until now, I had been getting paid in gift card format which, isn’t the greatest if you need to buy anything that isn’t from Amazon. Recently I found this site called Cash Crate. is the only online survey website I have found that sends out actual check with actual money. The site is easy enough to navigate, it had various options to earn cash. You can watch videos, take survey and shop through websites for cash. Each time you complete a survey your money marker is updated, although I have noticed that it can take a little but of time for it to appear.

When you reach an amount of $25 they will send you a check in the mail, which sounds awesome to me!! I love taking survey’s to make extra cash! You can spend time with your family, you can do them in your P.J’s and you can get your own snacks at the same time too!! You can expect to receive 2-3 emails a day inviting you to survey’s but, there are loads more on the website! You can also receive free offers from companies that will pay you to try their products or service.

Anyone who is looking for a bit of extra income should certainly give it a try by pressing the button below! And no it is not a scam!! Be sure to let me know what you think of it in comment section!


Karaoke Port Alberni

I never thought I’d be one to enjoy Karaoke, but I have been twice in the last week! Thanks to the encouragement of my friend Nicole and couple BlackFly Vodka’s, I took a shot at it. On Wednesday night Karaoke is at The Blue Marlin Inn (The Arli). We arrived to a turnout of maybe 30 people, which isn’t bad for a Wednesday night. I headed up to the bar with Nicole, who just so happened to be buying the drinks because she won 70 dollars at the Casino only minutes before. We ordered two of our favourite shots, Marijuana Milkshakes. Our bartender was new, he had never made them. That being said he was quick on a call to another bartender to get the recipe. While waiting for him to make the drinks.

We felt a little embarrassed for ordering such a “fancy” shot in a line up full of men wanting bottled beer. They weren’t hiding their annoyance either. I felt terrible for the man behind the bar, he had been nothing but kind. After a couple of minutes of standing there awkwardly, to our relief the he asked if we would like to take a seat and he would bring our shots over. He ended up bring two light blue drinks over, they were not exactly what we asked for but the were delicious none the less. They were also complimentary, which was thoughtful. We sang, drank and overall it was a fun experience!

Friday night was Karaoke at the Port Pub, not somewhere I have been very often. I didn’t think that there would be that many people but, I was wrong. Packed full of enthusiastic patrons of all different ages, we even saw some returning singers from The Blue Marlin. One of the many wonderful voices I heard that evening was that of Niklas Burton, a resident of Port Alberni and Karaoke fan. His melodious voice stood out among the crowd. Tackling Sia’s complex song Chandelier is not for the faint of heart but Niklas had the vocal range to pull it off. He was not the only talented voice there that night, multiple others surprised the audience with powerful renditions of their all time favourite songs!  The service was great and if I am not mistaken they also had Pool Tables on the upper level for those not courageous enough for Karaoke. I strongly urge anyone who hasn’t already been to go in and check it out!

So Port Alberni if you’re looking for a fun Karaoke night out, those are some of your options!  If anyone knows the name of the Karaoke company, feel free to leave their name in the comments so I can add it to the blog! If you have videos from your Karaoke experience feel free to leave them in the comments as well!

On a side note, I am looking for recommendations for topics for my next blogs! Tell me what you love most about Port Alberni so everyone else and myself can check it out!
