Ways to Supplement Your Income Without Going Crazy
Do you work full-time, but still struggle to make ends meet? Have you ever thought “If I could just make a few extra hundred dollars things would be so much easier?” Where there’s a will, there’s a way. Here are some ways to make a little extra cash without spreading yourself too thin.
Part time flex job – There are many companies looking for people to work from home. Often these positions are time flexible, so you can do them when it is convenient for you. For example, medical coding and billing, editing, blog writing, surveys, etc.
Grocery stores – Whether you are outgoing and like interacting with people or a night owl who likes to keep to yourself and just accomplish a task, a grocery store might be a good fit. Grocery stores are almost always looking for part time cashiers and stockers, particularly for overnight shifts. Because of this, they are often willing to be accommodating with scheduling needs.
Online stores or craft fairs – If your creative juices result in making crafts like knit items, wooden signs, repurposed items, etc., it is easy to set up an online store on a site like Etsy. You can also sign up for craft fairs or rent a booth at a flea market. While this isn’t consistent monthly income, it is a great way to make a little extra money to put aside for those unplanned expenses such as car repairs, medical bills or something fun like a vacation.
eBay – eBay is a great place to sell unwanted items and clothes. You can list it as “buy it now” with a firm price or put them up for auction. If you find this to be successful, many people shop yard sales and flea markets for steals and then resell them. Again, this won’t provide reliable income, but every little bit helps!
Make sure that whatever you choose to do for extra cash is something that you enjoy, or at least don’t mind, so that it doesn’t just feel like additional work, but something you get fulfillment from as well.
