Everyone seems to be on the same page these days--trying to save money in this very blue economy we are in.
Saving money by doing things like cutting back on purchases, growing your own veggies and such, eating out way less (or not at all?), carpooling, walking instead of driving, using coupons, etc. are all good choices right now. But what about making some extra money ? Working outside of he home, or getting a second job may not be feasible for everyone, so what ways can we make extra income from home?
1. Sell Your Extra Books.
You can go online to cash4books and make some extra money selling your books you are done with. Cash4books will buy textbooks, audio books, soft cover books, hard cover books and they even pay shipping costs. All you need to do is enter the ISBN code to find out if Cash4Books will buy it.
2. Visit Half.com and list and sell DVDs and video games. You can list easier and not pay listing fees like with eBay. Even though Half.com is a part of eBay, it is easier to get used to. They reimburses most of your shipping costs, collect the money from buyers for you, and pays out twice a month via paypal.
3. Save all those pennies in your pockets every night in a jar. Pick up pennies you find on the street and under couch cushions. All that extra change will add up. And you can take that extra change straight to your nearest Coinstar machine and cash your coins in. You do pay a small counting fee, but if you opt for a gift card instead, the fee is waived. Either way that change can be a great way to bring in some extra money!
