Today's article comes from Dixie Somers. She sent in some great ideas for ways to bring some easy cash in when money gets tight! I hope you enjoy her tips!
There never seems to be enough money to make ends meet for many families, leaving them searching for ways to supplement the cash they earn. Fortunately, there’s a plethora of money-making projects that can help you get the cash that you need.
Hold a Garage Sale
Not only does a garage sale help clear clutter from the home that you’re no longer using, it also brings fast cash to your pockets. Set aside time this weekend for a garage sale, ensuring you have your items properly labeled, giving shoppers a good deal, and that you do plenty of advertising to spread the word of the sale.
Visit the Pawn Shop
Jewelry, electronics, musical instruments, guns, and other items of value are accepted at a pawn shop, giving you a cash loan on the items so you can retrieve them at a later date. Although pawn shops don't offer the highest dollar for your items, it is a quick and easy way to get money without sacrificing your belongings.
Do Extra Jobs
Parents need babysitters in order to go to work, but they also utilize sitters when they want an adult night out. That’s where your services come in. Why not babysit for a couple on a Friday or Saturday night while they enjoy one-on-one time together? You can earn $10+ per hour each child, each night that you babysit.

Junk cars sitting around on your property are nothing but eye sores. Why not sell them at a place like U Pull & Pay and pocket money for the scrap? You’re probably never going to get around to fixing it up anyway, and junk dealers can pick up your car for you and offer you money when you need it.
