Innovative Ways to Make Extra Money

As your fledglings spread their wings and fly off into the world, it’s time to feather your own nest with some extra cash. From selling stuff in your closet to starting your own business, you have many ways to make money at this stage of your life. Let’s get started and rake in some extra dough this month with these three tips.

Sell your stuff.

You likely have clothes hanging in your closet you haven’t worn in years or electronics sitting around the house you don’t need anymore. Do a big cleaning excursion in your home and gather everything you no longer use. You can resell clothing and other items online or at resale stores like Play Again Sports or Plato’s Closet. If you opt to sell online, many websites offer extra ease by providing pre-paid shipping and packaging for your deliveries.

Trade in gift cards.

If you have old, unused, or partially spent gift cards, those are gifts that can keep on giving! Various websites, like CardCash and ClipKard, will trade or buy gift cards from you. You can earn 80%– 92% of the card’s value or choose another card you would use. You can gain greater value if you trade for another card at a retailer you use often for household items, like Amazon or Target.

Start a side hustle.

Do you have a passion, unique skill set, and time? Creating your own business or side hustle can be an excellent way to generate additional income. If you have a hobby where you make things, you can set up a structure to sell those items online. Additionally, if you have a specific skill to share, you can earn income by teaching online or writing and selling an e-book. A side hustle can grow into your primary source of income, or you can keep the scale small.

From turning clutter into cash or unleashing your entrepreneurial spirit with a side hustle, the opportunities to generate additional income are as boundless as the sky. So, fly high with these excellent money-earning tips and watch your bank account soar.
