Today I would like to talk about some ways to get money out of things, you already have in your home.
Although, working on your own business is a goal for many people, it usually takes a lot of time to set everything up, with small income or even no income at all in the beginning. At the same time, you still need to pay your bills and have something to eat. Or maybe you are working in full time job and work towards your business after you come back home, but you have some huge spendings ahead of you? Or you just want to finaly go for your dreamed holiday?
Whatever is the reason, extra money is always a good thing. Especially, if we can get it for stuff, we no longer use or just our abilities. Some of my ideas might be obvious, other a bit less, so let’s get right into the content.
Sell your clothes online
Let’s admitt it: all of us have at least one of these t-shirts that are folded neatly ib the bottom of the shelf, haven’t we? Or this pair of trousers from high school time, which will fit perfectly as soon as we lose some weight. I don’t want to be rude, but they probably will not. And not because I think you are fat or something, but just because our bodies change over the time, our taste also and it could happen that you will not like how they look on you any way.
Now it is the best time to get rid of them and earn some extra cash at the same time. Ready? Make some great photo shoots, upload them on some website (like ebay, shpock, etc. depending what works in your area) and let others use it. You need money any way, don’t you?
Use apps when you are grocery shopping
And I don’t mean filling up surveys, it will take some of your precious time. But let’s think what you have to do any way? Grocery shopping! What, if you have some app which will pay you some cash back? Well, here it is! There are multiple apps, which allows you to upload picture of your receipt and pay you small money for it (I use Receipt Hog, but I think it depends on where you live). Of course it won’t be huge amount and usually you have to reach some amount to be payed, but it takes just couple of minutes to do, so why not? Especially that you are grocery shopping regularly.
Create online product
Ok, this might sound weird. It takes quite a lot of time to create quality product. But here ONLINE is a key word. After spending some time creating it, you can just automate the way you sell it and get some extra cash each time someone purchases it. And it doesn’t have to be anything fancy: there could be printables, some ebook, maybe app… Whatever you are able to sell. The only thing you need is your computer… and some will to spend time on it 😉 it is not quick, but will pay off eventualy.
Sell your crafts online
If you are arty person and create something all the time, maybe you should consider selling it online. Websites which work for clothes, usually work for other stuff too, so why not to make a use out of your hobby and declutter your home a bit at the same time? It is a win-win situation!
Keep putting change in the jar
Ok, this is not really getting an extra cash, but how many times did you loose coins out of your pocket? I do lose these coins regularly. Putting them in a jar, will save them. And belive me or not, but if you will fill the jar, you’ll have quite nice amount of money out of it. You can believe me!
And this is it for today’s post. I hope you enjoyed reading it! For now I wish you a very productive day and I’ll see you in my next post.
