Rebate Key

Rebate Key is a website where you can find different products from Amazon, Walmart, or at clearance prices and often FREE after rebate. It’s a place where sellers can get rid of their inventory and offer a rebate for you to get it back at very, very low prices.

Is there a limit of rebates?

Yes, there is a daily and monthly limit to claim rebates, 5 items per day, and 50 items per month. Once the limit has been reached, it will be refreshed on the 1st of the following month.


Trials and Tribulations of WAH

There is a lot of work from home stories that talk about the trials and tribulations, as well as the successes, of working from home. They mention the difficulty of work from home having difficulty adapting our routine so we can work from home. More than anything else, it is the change in the routine itself that gives people the most difficulty. The best way to adapt to the change, as it relates to work from home, is to keep as many elements of your former routine in place. When change is thrust upon us, the familiarity of routine will help with the transition.

While it is amusing to think that we can work at home in our sleepwear and slippers, this is counterproductive. Our morning work routines help up prepare for the day at the office, and they still can as we work at home. To get our mindset right, before going to the home office, you should continue with the morning routine you established when you went to the office. Have a shower, go about your regular morning rituals, and then get dressed as you would for the office. Dress like you normally would. Just as the routine helped us get ourselves ready for the day at the office, so they can help get you ready for the day working from home. You wouldn’t show up at the office in your sleepwear and slippers, nor should you do this in the home office either. Most people find comfort in routine and ritual. Our morning work routine should be the same. You might surprise yourself how productive you are continuing your routines of old.

More Work at Home Adventures

If you’ve been considering working from home, it’s important to figure out what kind of work is best suited to you and your situation. Not every work at home job will be a good match for you and a little evaluation now can save you a lot of headaches later. Before jumping into anything, consider and honestly assess these areas of your life:


What is your working environment in your home? Do you have a dedicated work space? Are you free from interruptions from others (spouse, roommate, children)? The area that you work in is going to be very important in the success of your work. If you have to share a desk with someone else’s work or homework or whatever, things can get complicated and downright messy. Make changes now to ensure that your workspace is yours.


How much time do you have to devote to your job? Do you have other commitments that will interfere? Are you able to dedicate several uninterrupted hours at a time or will you need to be flexible to, say, care for children? Certain jobs require you to be “on the clock” continuously, such as customer service or inbound/outbound sales. Others, such as freelance writing or blogging offer more flexibility. Determining your availability will greatly help you decide what kind of work to pursue.


What are you good at? What do you dislike? Be very honest here – if you hate dealing with the public, a customer service job might not be right for you. If you are good at solving problems, however, and making people feel at ease, it may be a great fit. Take a good look at yourself – at the intersection of what you are good at and what you love, stands your perfect job.

Working at home can be very fulfilling and offer many benefits over a regular 9 to 5 job. To make the most of it, though, you need to aim yourself in the right direction at the right job for you. This extra effort will pay off in big ways with greater satisfaction, less frustration, and more success in doing what you love.

The Work at Home Adventure

For many, the term “Work at Home” conjures images of sleeping in, sitting at a computer in pajamas and fuzzy slippers, sipping coffee, and getting paid for it. Naturally, this would be appealing to everyone; who wouldn’t want a job like that? But the reality of working at home can be much different. While there may be times that work can be done in this manner, it’s going to take some effort on your part to get there.

Working at home can involve a wide array of tasks – from customer service, sales, writing, blogging, as well as those that work remotely for a brick & mortar company. Whatever type of work you do, there are some basic guidelines to remember that will make your experience much better and more profitable.

~Be Realistic

It’s important to understand, when doing freelance work especially, that a career is not built overnight. It takes time to build a reputation, clientele and a regular income. This is the reason that many freelancers continue to work their ‘day jobs’ until a more steady income is established. Be encouraged during this time, knowing you are not alone and it is not a reflection on your ability or value if it takes longer than you anticipated to transition to working exclusively at home.


Working from home is desirable to many, but it includes an entirely different set of demands. The freedom you enjoy is wonderful, but at the same time, you will have distractions to deal with that are not present in an office or other location, especially if you have children. It’s very important to establish ‘work rules’ while at home. Do you work set hours? Are you available to others during those hours? Can you stay away from the TV, internet and telephone while working? When boundaries are set and adhered to, either with yourself or other family members or both, your chances of success improve greatly.


There’s nothing wrong with asking for help from others, especially if you’re starting a home business. Just because you are physically at home, doesn’t mean you can do everything as before. Delegate responsibilities such as housework, cooking or running errands to others (if possible) to give yourself time to be ‘at work’ and build your business. Even if there is some resistance to this, remind family members that your success is not just your success, it is a success for everyone.

There can be great reward in working at home, especially if your desire is to spend more time with family. As with any path to success, however, it is traveled one step at a time and there are few shortcuts. Understand your goals, set your sights toward them and work hard every step of the way. This work at home adventure is not for the weak, but you can find the independence and success you are seeking and build the career and life of your dreams.
