On a Budget Series – Part 6: Ways to Earn Extra Income

Welcome back to my “On a Budget” Series. Today I’m discussing, more like brainstorming, various ways to earn extra income – legal ways of course!
  • Get a 2nd job
    • If you currently work M-F, think about the possibility of getting a part-time weekend job.
    • You can also look at work-at-home companies such as Close to My Heart to provide additional income with a less “corporate” structure.
    • If you are crafty or handing in a specific trade, offer your services through classified ads either in the newspaper or online. It never hurts to see if anyone needs your assistance.
  • Purge closets and cupboards to gather items for a garage sale.
    • Garage sales are a great way to earn you extra income and accomplish some spring cleaning. It’s also a great way to find stuff you forgot you had J.
    • If you find better than garage sale items, list them on eBay or Craigslist to gain a higher return on your item than a garage sale may bring.
  • Complete surveys and join focus groups
    • There are tons of sites that offer payment for survey and focus group involvement. You’ll have to verify that the company is legit before signing up but taking a few moments out of your day could provide additional income.

Feel free to share your ideas in the comments below.
