Ever been in such a tight squeeze, where you needed money immediately? I hear you! Many of us live paycheck to paycheck and finding extra money can be hard to do when all of our money goes to bills and living expenses. There are, however, a few (legit) ways that you can earn some quick cash.
Here are some of my favorites:
Sell something – Use sites like Craigslist, Ebay or a local Facebook group (like Mamaswap in Maine) to get rid of items you are no longer using. You would be surprised at how much stuff you have in your basement, garage, or closet that is just collecting dust, when it could be earning you money! When I lived in Hawaii, I would scour Goodwill and Salvation army stores and then turn around and sell my finds on Ebay and Craigslist. It was an awesome side job!
Become a Virtual Assistant – There are dozens of Facebook groups where writers, graphic designers or social media experts can offer their services for a fee. These jobs are usually quickly paid through Paypal. For example, some of the VAs in the groups I belong to can earn up to $30 for a recipe or writing an article. Go to Facebook and search for VA groups to find some.
Sign up with Fiverr – Fiverr is my latest favorite time suck. I swear I get lost in how many services are on there! The premise is simple, you put out an offer for a job that you would be willing to do for 5 bucks. Someone take you up on that offer, and boom..you just made $5.00! These tasks can be as simple as tweeting something, creating a graphic or writing a blog post.
Last, but certainly not least..
Coupon Overage – Coupon overage is the money you get back when an item you are purchasing is less than the amount of the coupon you are using. Walmart’s coupon policy allows for coupon overage in the form of cash back! For example, let’s say you have a $5/2 Nivea Lotion coupon and the Nivea lotion is only $1.97 at Walmart. You can purchase 2 lotions, use 1 coupon and in return you’ll receive $1.06 cash back. Now imagine if you had 10 of those coupons? You could purchase 20 lotions and get $10.60 cash back!
