Earning money from home is a very popular topic. Usually if you do a search online with this phrase it will pull up all kinds of garbage and scams and very few legitimate links.
Being a stay at home mom with a limited income, I am always looking for new ways to earn a little extra cash. I thought I’d just take a few moments and share some of the things I do.
I sell my used books, cd’s, dvd’s and video games on www.half.com It is SO much easier than selling on ebay (even though ebay does own half.com). If you have an ebay account then you have a half account (it is the same info). Also, they provide a shipping allowance and they pay out twice a month.
I do online surveys. I am trying to get in the swing of this online survey thing. Right now I am actively using swagbucks and inboxdollars and plan on earning some gift certificates for Christmas time.
Sometimes I sell miscellaneous things on craigslist. Usually that is where I sell bigger items that people need to come pick up (like the treadmill I sold).
Occasionally I will sell things for third parties. If someone has things they want to get rid of but don’t have the time to sell them then I will do the listings and I get a percentage of the profit.
Mail in rebates are a good way to get some free stuff and sometimes extra cash. If a product is on sale for $6 and you use a $2 coupon and then get a rebate for the full $6 you have made $2.
I save all my change in a change jar and every once in a while I cash it in for bills at my bank. This is an easy way to save up some extra cash. Those pennies and nickles add up!
Again, these are not HUGE ways to make money, but they are simple little things you can do to get a little extra cash.
