5 Ways to Make a Little Extra Income
A few days back I wrote about ways to make money through Side Hustles. I knew this was a new term to many but just to clarify, it is a slang way of saying ways to make a little extra income for your home. I kinda got a chuckle out of the questions that I received in my inbox from people. Through answering the questions about Side Hustles, I had a few other ways to come to mind that I have used in the past or had people tell me they have done to make extra income for their home.
Some ideas are very easy. These two post have actually sparked me again to make a little extra income for our household.
How can you make a little Extra Income?
- Barter: Barter something that you know how to do that others don’t know how to do and trade services. Ok, right off the bat the first one really doesn’t make hard cash in your hands but it save you money if you barter your services for something that your family needs.
- Sell something small that you don’t need. Look around your house. Is there something that has been just laying around for a few months that you have not even touched? A purse, a lamp, a kitchen gadget…. if you are not using it then sell it. Facebook or the Let Go app both are wonderful platforms to sell items.
- Sell something big. You might be needing some cash a little faster right now. Look around and see what you have that you can do without. Don’t be crazy and sell your computer if you use it on a daily or weekly basis, but if you have 3 TV’s and you really only watch one and maybe the second one on occasion. Get rid of the 3rd TV. A couch, a car, a patio set, these are things that sell well and they are replaceable.
- Simple “Side Hustles” : There is some simple things you can do that will make some cash. Check out these ideas.
- Mow lawns in your neighborhood
- Baby Sit
- Dog Sit
- House sitting
- Win Cash! Yep, you could win cash. There is actually people that sit at a computer all day long and they sign up for giveaways all day long. This is their job. You should try your hand at it.
- Set up an email account only for this because you might get a lot of junk mail.
- You can google the word Giveaways and then see what is available.
- On Social media, you can use the #Giveaways to find some really cool giveaways.
These are just a few more ways you can make some extra Cash for your family. If you have some ways that I have not listed, be sure to shout them out. We all would love some fresh ideas.
