Think Outside The Box

A lot of times when we try to figure out ways to make money from home, we forget that there are some very simple options out there that can help bring in extra money. I'm talking about finding that one thing that maybe only you like to do and figure out how to turn it into a great money-making side job. Granted I don't have a tremendous amount of ideas when it comes to this stuff but that's because things like this come from your own mind and figuring out what it is you wouldn't mind doing for a little extra money. If I had to come up with just a couple of ideas to help you get the marbles rolling in your own mind (so-to-speak) then I'd say to think about something like mowing a neighbor's yard that you see hiring a yard man on a regular basis. You know, people pay big money for companies to come out and mow their yards. I've heard of some paying as much as $60 for the average size yard. Think what you could offer for half that! Seriously, if it's someone that lives right near you, what does it really take to buzz their yard after or before doing your own and then you've just made $30. That can add up quickly over a month's time. Another idea is how some people like to make their own crafts such as wood products or even jewelry. Turn your hobby into money by marekting yourself on the web through websites such as Craigslist or eBay. You could also invest a little money in an ad to run weekly or even once a month in the newspaper. Bottom line is, it really isn't that difficult to find ways to make a little extra money so get out there and just do it. What do you have to lose?

Blogs Can Be A Money Maker!

Typically I hear stories about making money with blogs or other similar things and I think, "NO WAY". I've had advice though that has steered me into believing that it does actually make you money. While I don't know a whole lot about it myself, what I would recommend is taking a look at the video I've attached below that will show you just how it's done. Watch and learn and in time you could be watching money roll in with little effort on your part. Keep in mind though, and this comes from the small bit I do know at this time, everything I've heard about making money with blogs is that it does take time and patience to reach a point where you can sell ad space on your blog, which I believe is the main way people make money on their blogs. You have to give a whole lot of time and attention to you blog in the beginning before you'll see it make a difference but once it does, it's pretty cool!

Where To Find Bargains To Sell Online

I've always been really big on finding bargains. I have spent many of days browsing through second hand stores; places like GoodWill or Thrift stores. It wasn't until last year that I discovered what a great money-making opportunity is lying around these stores. You would be shocked what some people will just give away that is then sold super cheap for YOU to find. And then what's the next best thing...selling it on the web of course! I have friends that go to these stores in search of brand names that she turns into BIG profit. It might mean that you have to do a little research on the web about what's popular but it is very worth it. Find your local thrift stores and GoodWill and make a weekly trip to see what new things they have to offer. The best thing about it is that they are stocked with brand new merchandise on a daily basis so what you don't find today could be there tomorrow. Start your search and see what comes of it. You never know, you could be the next lucky one to make that great find that will fill your pockets with cash!

Selling On The Web

I've heard so many people talking about how awesome eBay is for making a little extra income from home. I agree that it's a great way to sell items but recenty I discovered a website that is all local items and I have sold SO much on there. It's I have had tremendous luck with that site and best of all it doesn't cost a thing. Also, the buyers are all local so there is no hassle of shipping. People coming to you to pick up their items. It's the perfect way to search through your house and get rid of all those things you no longer want or need. Have fun!

Here Is A Different Idea I Found On The Web

Today I found a video online that I wanted to share. Now let me say that I know nothing personally about making money this way but I can only share what I see and a little of what I know and unfortunately I don't know everything. (As if you needed me to tell you that! LOL)

Here is the video I found about making money previewing movies. Remember to NEVER buy anything but rather use the resources to get more ideas about how to research what's out there and legitimate. Good Luck!

Survey Companies That Really Do Pay

I have some really great news about two survey companies I have come across that not only cost nothing to join, but they really do pay!! Now remember it's not a fortune that you can make but it's money and we could all use a little extra money, right?Not all that along ago I went out in search of surveys to do for money and as I'm sure you can imagine I ran across so very many sites saying "sign up for this free trial offer and we'll pay you $5". How could I resist, right? Well, that got me into so much trouble. What I didn't realize or somehow missed in the fine print is that it's often times very difficult to get a hold of these companies that you are signing up for free trial offers. And that leads me to the next thing which is that if it's very difficult to get a hold of the company, it's very easy for them to not have to cancel your trail offer and therefore you end up getting charged a huge amount for things you didn't even have any interest in to begin with. Now only that but guess what, I didn't even get paid for signing up. So watch out for these types of sites. Here are the two survey companies I have had luck with. They are listed Below. Join me again tomorrow for more great advice about the journey to make money at home. God bless.
