These days everyone is on a tight budget. While you can do a lot to save money on everything from food to travel you can help your finances in other ways as well. Try these easy ways to make extra money to help you give your budget a boost.
Order a bag from ThredUp to turn in old clothes. These will be assessed and they will pay you for anything they can sell. This is a great way to clean out your closet and make extra money without having to do much work. Simply toss it in the bag and hand it off to the post office.
Use a consignment shop to sell items you no longer want. While this can be a bit of a wait it can be a lot easier for you than trying to list everything line for sale or hosting an old fashioned yard sale.
Sell Your Crafts
Are you a crafty person, who loves to refurbish or create unique things? Sew, knit, quilt, paint, etc. Turn your hobby into a moneymaker. Selling something you already love to make is and easy way to make extra money without a lot of extra work.
Make a point to only list finished products for sale so you don’t have to stress out about getting stuff made. Use Ebay, Etsy, or even Poshmark or Mercari to sell these goods.
Work Odd Jobs
People are always looking for help with things like yard work, house cleaning, pet care, baby-sitting and more. Look for easy odd jobs you can take on. Let people know that you pet sit or care for gardens while people are away on vacation.
Tell people you are willing to do odd jobs around the house for anyone looking to hire a little help for a project. Many elderly people love to hire out tasks they no longer can do themselves.
