Opinion Outpost

One of my favorite survey companies is Opinion Outpost. I’ve been a member for less than 2 years and have earned almost $200!
One of the reasons I like this research panel is that you only need $5 to get an Amazon gift card, $15 for a Citi gift card, or $20 for a check.  Most surveys pay $2 and take less than 15 minutes of your time.  That might not sound like much, but it does add up quickly!  I love using the Amazon gift cards for Christmas gifts or diapers.
I set up a filter on my e-mail that automatically moves my Opinion Outpost e-mails to a Survey folder.  Then whenever I have some free time, I go to that folder and answer a few surveys.

5 Ways to Wear a Denim Shirt

I recently picked up a denim shirt at a garage sale because I’ve noticed the look showing up in magazines and on blogs.  I love the idea, but I haven’t worn a denim shirt since the late 90s. Here are some looks I found to help me work this piece into my wardrobe…without looking like a cowboy.
Jessica of What I Wore wears her denim with a printed skirt.
Kendi Everyday ties her denim over a maxi dress.
Madewell pairs a denim top with nautical stripes and olive bottoms.
dsquared2 styles a denim top with bright bottoms.
Paired with white jeans, wedge sandals, and a navy blazer.  Classic.
Is this a look you’ll be trying any time soon?
