Earning more income in the new year - 3 ways to make easy cash
You may have heard that in order to save more, you have to earn more. You may have also heard that the best way to pay down debt is to again, earn more money. While this makes complete sense, sometimes it’s not possible to get a second job or to earn more money in your current profession. You may have family obligations, transportation issues, or you may be working in a stagnant profession to name a few reasons why it’s not feasible to easily grow your income. But even if you feel stuck, earning more income in the new year is possible with these 3 easy ways!
- Most people have stuff that they don’t need or use anymore. You may have even received an “ugly Christmas sweater” or two for the holidays that just don’t fit your style. When thinking about ways to earn extra money, think outside of the box! You can sell items online through local community buy and sell websites or on sites like Gumtree.
- While you may not have time for a second job, you have neighbours and family members that you may be able to help out in your spare time when it’s convenient for you. Or you could check community boards or just simply talk with people in your area to see if there are small jobs available.
- If you have internet at home, there’s always an opportunity to earn more money. You could always write an e-book about something that you’re good at or are interested in, or you could put your daytime work skills to use by freelancing. Whether it’s an extra hour or 10 per week, working from home is often more convenient for people.
