The weather is turning nice and you want to get out and do more. Only “getting out and doing” costs money, and the budget (as usual) does not have room. What can you do to boost your income with extra money?
Making extra money does not have to be hard you just have to get creative. Ask yourself:
- What do you have to offer?
- What can you do that maybe someone else does not have the time or ability to do?
- What things for this time of year are needed and how can you fill that need?
Springtime is a great time to get out, take advantage of the weather, and enjoy outdoors activities while turning a profit.
Easy ways to make extra money
Host a yard sale
As the warm weather rolls in and the urge to spring clean takes over, there is no better time to host a yard sale and get rid of extra stuff while you make extra cash. This is a good time to clean out old furniture, craft supplies, decor, tools, and garden supplies.
Bonus: If you are looking to make money by updating and flipping things, spring yard sales are a great way to find deals on items you can flip this year.
Help with spring cleaning chores
Everyone loves a nice spring cleaned house. Not everyone has the time or ability to do a nice deep cleaning. House cleaning is a great way to make extra money year round but in the spring it is easy to find side jobs cleaning houses due to the high demand. Who knows maybe you will end up doing it year round. You can get supplies like microfiber rags from your local dollar store and even make your own natural cleaners to raise the value (and pay) of your service.
Hire yourself out for landscaping
When spring weather takes over, it is time to make the yard look nice… and the perfect time to make a little extra money helping people tidy their yards.
Rake up debris, trim and edge yards, dig out flour beds, hull and fill raised beds with compost and soil, plant gardens for those physically incapable. They get a great yard, and you get extra cash for your own project. A true win-win situation.
Offer auto detailing services
While everyone is slaving away inside for a nice clean house, they are also thinking about their car.
Car detailing is a great way to make extra as the weather warms up. In fact, many people start full-fledged businesses just detailing cars. This makes for a great money-making project for teens too. Basic supplies can be found at the dollar store so the initial investment is minimal.
Get into tutoring
Springtime is when students are getting ready to take finals and standardized tests. This makes spring a great time to earn extra money by tutoring kids and college students that are stuck and in need of help. You can find great tutoring jobs online or at your local schools as they work to prepare kids for the annual tests.
Whatever ways you find to make extra money this spring, remember to have fun with it and enjoy yourself. Making extra money should take advantage of what you enjoy so you are more likely to do it.
