We all know that we could use some money. Yet we ever really do much about it. Today I wanted to try something different. I want us to find a way to make some money around the house. I don’t want you to worry about going back to college for four years or investing thousands of dollars into some hot investment. Today we’re going to look at how you can make money around the house.

What can you do within your home to make money? How could you put some extra money together without even stepping outside of your place?

Post an ad on Kijiji or anywhere else.

Do you have any skills? Do you have anything that you could do for money? Of course you do. We all have skills that are in demand. Even if you speak the English language, there are those that want to learn. There’s always something that you can market. Now it’s your chance to make money doing something that you’re good at or teaching others.

I want you to place an ad on Kijiji to promote something that you can offer.

One of my buddies offers guitar lessons online. Personal trainers often promote their park workouts and training regimens on the Internet.

The best part is that you’ll never have to worry about bothering people or being annoying  You can take your ad down. Those that are interested will come to you.

Look for stuff to sell.

We all have lots of stuff around the house that we no longer need or use. Why not try selling it to see what you can get? If you’ve seen any of the antique shows, you’ll know that there’s demand out there for some of the strangest things possible. Do you have something worth any money?

You can sell gold jewelry or other items that you’re no longer using. We all have something that we don’t need, yet someone else out there would love to get their hands on.

What can you sell for a decent profit?

Take advantage of rebates.

This is a silly one but it’s true. Too many of us have forms laying around for rebates and so on. Companies offer rebates and rebate coupons in hopes that nobody uses them. I’ve caught myself throwing out papers only to realize that I’m potentially holding money in my hands. I had so many old rebate forms that I needed to fill out to college on the money that was promised to me.

It’s funny how we forget to do something as simple as fill out a form. I want you to take a few minutes to go over old paperwork to see if there’s anything valuable collecting dust.

What can you do around the house this week to make some money? The best part is that you don’t even have to put socks on. Who wants to wear socks in the summertime? When you make some money, you can go back to enjoying yourself around the house.
