Earn Extra Money Working From Home, Online, Or Otherwise
Spring is here. Warmer weather means you can start being more creative with finding ways to make extra money. One of those ways is using Spring cleaning to get cash.
This dreaded task could bring you some extra cash. I’m sure you have tons of stuff that you don’t want just sitting around collecting dust. Get rid of it.
Whether it be shoes, clothes, or that treadmill you have yet to use since you bought it, someone needs what you don’t want. I know its a duanting task, but you will fell less cluttered and more organized afterward. Trust me, I did this recently, and I feel like a weight was lifted.
Once you have your pile of unwanted items, you can sale them to someone else several ways:
You can auction off some items on Ebay. Even a large item, such as a treadmill sells well on Ebay. Just list it as a pick-up only item so that you don’t have to worry about shipping.
Have a garage sale. This is your best option if you have a lot of items to sell. Plan it for an upcoming weekend, and advertise your sale frequently leading up to the date. Craigslist is a good advertising avenue, but you can also announce your sale in your local newspaper, or by posting flyers around your community.
You can also list individual items to sale on Craigslist. You can save yourself auction fees by doing this. Or find a consignment store in your area, and sale some items there.
This is an easy way to make some money quickly. Many senior citizens need help like this. Advertise your cleaning services at a retirement community or senior apartment building. Or, post an ad on Craigslist, or any other online classified ads site.
Offer assistance with sorting through closets, washing windows, and cleaning out and organizing kitchen cabinets and shelves. Once you help one person, word of mouth may lead you to more customers that need you to help them clean too.
This actually coincides with the number 2 tip listed above. If your help other people do their Spring cleaning, you’ll be the first one with access to items they don’t want. You can find some really good stuff this way.
People throw out tons of stuff that could make you some extra money. For instance, some recycle centers and technology stores like Best Buy, will purchase old electronics, such as cell phones, computers, televisions. The items don’t have to be working at all because these places usually just want the parts out of them.
So, if you decide to help someone with Spring cleaning, keep your eye out for random items that can be recycled or sold. Ask to take the items instead of throwing them out.
The weather is getting better, and Spring cleaning is starting. Use this time to cash in and make extra money by trying some of the tips listed above.
