In this rough economy, it can be difficult to make ends meet. Even if you have a job, it may not be enough to cover all of your bills and help you get into the black. Thankfully, there are various ways to bring in additional income without getting a second full-time job.
Here are five easy, convenient and flexible ways to subsidize your income.
Babysit, Pet Sit or House Sit
Babysitting or really any kind of sitting are popular options for people who want to bring in additional cash. You can work from home, the hours are incredibly flexible, and you can work as much or as little as you want.
Pet sitting and house sitting are great options that are just as great, but that many people don’t consider. With a little investment you can turn your home into a doggy daycare for friends and family.
Providing these services can help bring in the extra spending money that you want for fun activities.
Write Online Content
If you are particularly gifted at writing, you may want to try your hand at freelance writing. It doesn’t require a degree or a commute, and there are no start-up costs.
Plus, it is incredibly flexible as you can take on as much or as little work that you desire. With all the online services that are available you can be sure to find a business that can use your skills from home.
Learn to Coupon
Extreme couponing is an art form that is not taken on for the faint of heart. If you have ever seen one of those couponing shows, you know that the amount of money you can save with coupons is ridiculous.
You don’t have to be an extreme couponer to save your family a little money though. Coupon on a smaller level, and you could save your family hundreds each year.
Unlike donating your blood, you can actually make good money just by donating your plasma. The process generally takes about an hour, and while the pay varies by location, it is not unusual to make between $20 and $50 a session. Plus, you can go twice a week.
If you are in the habit of throwing your bottles and cans away after using them, stop right now! You can actually make money by recycling these items. Simply save them all up, then take them all to the recycling center to be weighed.
There are many facilities around the world, like General Recycling Industries Ltd., that can help you get your recycling sorted out.
Collect cans and bottles from friends, neighbors and public places, and you could really make a good chunk of change!
One of the most profitable recyclable items is scrap metal so if you have any lying about you should be sure to visit your local recycling center for some extra cash.
No matter how bleak the economy looks, there are always multiple ways that you can bring in additional income. You just have to be creative. Try one or more of these five techniques today, and you’ll be living more comfortably very soon.Facebook.com/doable.finance
