and your bank.I love it when i have some really great statements,aswell as when i look to see what money i have in my paypal account.I think that there are times where as in the past i did not want to know what my balance was in my bank,but now i love it.I looked at my paypal today and found great news aswell,probably as i have not spent any money lately.

Hi jugsjugs, I have a pay pal account, but don't have a credit card. Is it possible to cash it via bank? I live in Indonesia. Thank you.

I'm also from Indonesia. I have several times withdrew money from paypal to my bank account. Not having to use a credit card to verify paypal. You can also use your bank account. I have been using the bank Mandiri.

I am like you, I love to go there and find more money than I expected. I am waiting on some payments, and I lose track of some that are supposed to come in, so then when they do show up it is a good surprise. I have had to use PayPal for bills some lately, and I am anxious to build it back up.

I love "forgetting" about money. When I was younger I'd often be surprised at what money I had hid away in my drawers and totally forgotten about. There was one time I had a $20 bill stowed away for a whole year or almost a whole year!

I think that it is always nice,when we look to see if there is a healthy balance in our accounts,to be honest i tend not to look at my paypal account,so when i did i was shocked.As for my bank balance i have alot more in there than i thought,i did also check to ensure that i had all my direct debits go out,so it is a bonus.

dreamkeeper, I am sure with just little effort you can find yourself surprised and satisfied with your earnings. Utilize mylot the best you can, it's a great site to earn from and you can find a good amount here if you just have fun and strike conversations. My paypal is still not up to what I wish it was, but being here has made me the most money out of any of the other sites I've been on, and it's also the most fun.

It is always nice to find that you have more money than you thought you did.

I am soo pleased that both paypal and my bank are really good.I have also got nearly all my christmas presents aswell so that is even better.I do not go any where to spend any money,so perhaps i have done less shopping on the internet than usual.

Hi Jugs, I love checking on my paypal account. just yesterday i checked it out and found remittance from other earning sites. i am loooking forward to having some more this month and the coming months too. i am working hard on it!

I am like you i get a few pounds here and there and i must say that it all adds up in the end.I think,because the children not being at school aswell as me not being able to go anywhere to spend my money is the reason to why i have alot in both accounts.

hi jugsjugs well before I paid my medsbill, and the twenty on the pacific ambulance bill of 150 and the 38.99 I had a lovely balance and now even with the my lot earnings I have a balance of 12 lonely dollars'but the good part is all my bills are paid.plus I had already don some shopping for things I needed for myself. so I must work a bit harder this month to make more money on my mylot.

I think that with all the bills that we get it is hard to even have a balance sometimes,lol.Thankfully in the UK we only have to pay for medicines,as i would have to think how much it would cost me.The reason why i have a good balance i think is that the children are on school holidays,so i do not have to pay for school dinners,aswell as you know i can not get out to spend the money that is in my accounts.I have not even been looking on the internet to see if there are things that i would like.

Any amount of money that goes into paypal I like to see, but especially if it's a lot of money. I enjoy seeing a good balance in paypal as well as in the bank. When my husband and I both worked we had a great balance in our bank account, and it really felt good. I'd love to be able to keep the amount we had been keeping in there at all times, so I'm constantly trying to think of ways to get the money in there, and have it sit there, and grow as we add more and more. Ofcourse bills are a must so it's much easier said then it is done.

I think that the main reason why i use to always have a good bank balance was the same as you,we both worked,where as now i am unable to go to work due to ill health.I think the reason why i have more money is that i can not get out to spend it,aswell as that with the children not being in school i have saved alot of money,by not paying for school dinners.I hope that next month the balance in both paypal aswell as my bank will be higher.

Nice to have a good shock when you look at your paypal account. So far, for me, it has been no shock at all. Hopefully, I will have one soon.

Well, since i am new at this and have only opened a PayPal account about two weeks ago, I have yet to find any welcome news there. But i hope i can also share some of that shock with you soon.

It is great that when you do not expect your balance to be good that it is alot more than good in a bank account,but also when you look in the paypal account it is even better.

I try to just leave my paypal account alone until I want something special, that way it's a surprise when I find what I can spend. My son't birthday is coming up and it's his 50th so i want to get him something really special so I'll be checking on paypal next week.

I hope you have good news in your paypal like i did,s there was alot more money than i thought there would be,what a nice shock for a change.The best bit is when i also looked in my bank account aswell,as the balance was really great.Hope you find a bargain.

It is always a nice suprise and a good feeling when you have more money than you thought. When I balance my checkin account the balance is usually a little bit higher than I expect. I just let it go and don't look for the reason. As long as they say there is more money in there than I do, I just look at it as a buffer in case things get tight. If they say there is less money in there, then I look for the reason until I balance.
@jugsjugs (13045)

I think that it is great when the balance on any accont says that you have more money in there than you thought.I think another reason for there being more in there than i thought was that i have not had the children at school so i have not had to pay for school dinners for them all aswell.

dear jj, i can seem to relate to that. you feel proud that you have been thrifty. have a great day. ann

I think the reason to why i have money in there is that i have not been any where to spend the money.Also i have not got anything off ebay for a while either,so all the money has built up.The thing i like is when you do not look at your paypal for a while and then you see a nice balance.

I love this too!! I logged into paypal a few days ago and had a nice surprise waiting for me. Also yesterday I went to check my bank to see how overdrawn I was.. And there was $175 dollars in there!! I was sure I had nothing. I'm still confused about where it came from.. I guess I'll have to wait to see my bank statement.

Isnt it great when we see good news,rather than the usual news in our accounts that we have.I think that with having sometimes a five week month then that also helps,but i have not been anywhere to spend my money,also the children have not been to school,so i have saved over £110 on their school dinners this month aswell as last month.

Great news, i wish you a lot of those for future :) I use my pay pal every day, but transactions go slow there ... :) And of course i'm not really happy, because i need to pay so much things. But i can't find better way for online earnings. May be if i spend more time in sites like this, i can make 30-40$ a day, which will be very good, but for now i haven't find way for that :D May be some day, when i find it, i'll share it with all you. I wish happiness to all and good earnings also. I think that if we all have good money for sharing and spending for our needs we will be more happy. Little worries will be gone and we will have the chance to be really happy and relaxed. Wish you great weekend.

I think that things are really looking up for me to have great balances in my bank aswell as in my paypal,but because i can not get out this also save soo much money aswell.I am sure that i will need something sooner or later so i doubt that the money will be in there for long,but who knows.

I am going to leave the money in the paypal until i see something either on ebay or another site that i buy things on.If there is nothing that i want,when there is more in there then i will put it in my bank,for another time.

Definitely it is thrilling to suddenly discover a 'fat' balance in our virtual bank. At least we are contented to know that our online efforts are compensated and our virtual bank balances keep growing.

Oh yes, i am going to leave the money in paypal i think until either i see something that i want,or when there is more in there put it in my bank for a rainy day.

Hi jugsjugs!. I glad to hear you already earn so many in your paypal, not like me its just few dollar because I can not wait to spend it to buy something online. I usually make my target on certain item I like. I usually focusing my earning to buy it. I really wanna to learn not to spent my earning but when I see cute stuff, I will buy it and regret it later.

While I love looking at my paypal balance, I absolutely hate looking at the balance in our checking account right now because we have been going through a tough time financially. I know that things are going to get better with that, but for right now it is difficult, if not impossible for me to be able to keep an eye on the checking account because it doesn't really do anything more for me than to make me depressed because we don't have much money.
