Hey we all need to make a little bit of money, right? What about extra money?? Maybe you are a stay-at-home Mom and want to make a little bit of extra cash on the side to afford trips to the nail salon or you have a full-time job but want a little extra to start saving for your kids college someday. Look no further, we have complied 5 easy ways to make you some extra money!
Sell your kids or your own old stuff-
We have all seen the buy/sell/trade Facebook sites and you might be lucky enough to live close to an adult or kids consignment store. I know we have several where I live. Load up everything that is in nice usable condition and hit the consignment store or post it on one of the Facebook sites. I can make anywhere from $100-$500 when I go through clothes, toys, and equipment that I don’t need anymore and sell it! Someone is always looking for the stuff you are selling! You can even sell a totaled car by visiting WeBuyTotaledCars.com and talking with their car evaluation experts to make some quick cash!
Ebay and Craigslist to sell items
You can sell your used clothes or toys here too but larger items like furniture usually work best on Craigslist. Nowadays you can even start your own business selling things and Craigslist is a great place to start! Hard to find items (like collectibles) work best on Ebay. Whatever you decide to sell (don’t forget about electronics) there is always a market on these 2 sites and I have made some great extra money selling things we no longer need or selling something I bought cheap and wanted to resell at an more expensive rate to make some easy cash.
Take surveys and watch videos
Don’t forget about sites like SwagBucks and Opinion Outpost! Play games, watch videos, take polls and surveys and shop all from the comfort of your home while accumulating points that you can cash out for real money on paypal or gift cards from awesome stores like Amazon, Walmart, Macy’s and much more. I have friends who make a $50-$200 extra a month just hanging out on these sites.
Are you good at something? Why not help someone else be good at it too! More than 53 million Americans — over 34% of the US workforce — are currently doing independent, freelance-style work. Forbes estimates this number will increase to over 50% by 2020. Help people solve their problems by doing something that you are good at and comes natural to you! Better yet, make money doing it!
Offer child or pet-sitting services
Like kids and/or animals? Why not make some extra cash by watching your neighbors kids or walking their dog while they go out of town. I have a friend who makes up to $1000 extra each month by performing childcare in her home and pet-sitting services. Wow! This is a easy fun way to make some extra money and even get the whole family involved. Older kids are great helpers with these tasks for sure!
