There are months where you find that you are barely going to make your monthly payments. It is always possible to find some quick money making gigs if you know where to look.
5 Ways to Make Some Quick Side Money
1. Use your Expertise
Everyone has at least one skill that they can use to trade or barter with. Using my background I have not only made money off of my set of skills but I have been able to trade services with others which has helped me in remodeling my house. Use what you know and never devalue your services.
There is always a need for people who can teach. Tutoring does not just take the form of school courses but can be more suited to a profession or licensure exams. Simply put, if you are good at something and have solid communications skills you could offer your time and make some side cash.
3. Online Surveys
While they are not the quickest way to rake in the money, Companies pay lots of money to get feedback. As a bonus they are easy to complete while sitting on a couch.
4. Sell Old Clothes or Furniture
Do you have extra stuff hanging around the house? If so, hold a garage sale or place some ads on craigslist. It is amazing what people will pay for your old junk. Just this past fall someone offered more money for a couch than what I had paid for it at the store.
5. Craigslist Jobs
There are always small quick gigs listed in the jobs section of Craigslist. When hunting through all the job adds make sure to be picky and only target the ones which fit your requirements. Always make sure that you are entering into a safe arrangement and that both parties will benefit.
