Get the items in your house that you have not used for the last 6 months which is not a seasonal item. There is a high chance that you do not need these items anymore so you can convert them to extra cash.

If you are holding a physical garage sale, you should take note of the date and place since these are determining factors for the success of your garage sale. If you are planning to have a virtual garage sale, just make sure to promote your items for sale at free listing sites.

Tutor Students with Summer Classes

If you know who any kids or parents of kids who are taking summer classes who lives nearby, it would be good to ask them if they want tutoring services.

Determine which subjects are you most adept to teaching, how much your hourly rate will be in line with how many hours per week you can work. You can discuss this with potential clients upon them showing interest.

Babysit for Neighbors

That cute kid around the block could also be a potential source of income. Casually chat with any parents at the neighborhood’s playground to tell them that you are offering babysitting services.

It would be easier to ask those people you know who have kids who already know you. It would also help if you have a babysitting kit. It will contain first aid essentials that you can use while taking care of the kid.

Run Errands for Others


Outsourcing running errands for households is now becoming a popular service. You can also do this at your spare time. Post at free listings online as well as on your social media accounts on what errands you can run for other people.

You earn money while someone gets their tasks done. Sounds like a win-win situation.

Final Thoughts

With the determination and resourcefulness to meet financial freedom, it’s not impossible to reach your financial goals. You just have to put in more hours to get that extra money but it will all be worth it once you reap the fruits of your labor.
