Many old adages fall under the classification of being too cliché, but “cash is king” is certainly not one of them! No doubt, one of the most sought after pieces of advice is how to make extra money, and most people usually want to know the quickest way to do it. You probably can’t become a millionaire overnight unless you win the lottery, but there are many ways you can earn an extra few bucks in a hurry if you really need to.
We all know that Ebay and Amazon are great ways to sell things that you don’t need. Their only downfall is that the buyers are often out of state, if not out of country, and it can take some time to close a deal and actually receive some cold hard cash. This is precisely why I prefer using Craigslist. Your buyers are limited to your local area and often times can meet you the same day to exchange cash for the item. Of course make sure you meet in a public place for safety concerns.
I’m not much of a gambler, but I do like to dabble from time to time. If you live near a casino then this is an easy task, just jump in the car, hit the roulette table and let it all ride on black! Of course you have slightly less than 50/50 odds here, but it still gives you a chance of winning some quick cash. If you are fortunate enough to live in a state like New Jersey then you have the benefit of online gaming as well. By playing NJ poker online you have the ability to play for real money legally without ever leaving the comforts of your own home.
If gambling isn’t your thing don’t fret, there are several other ways to earn money. I am sure you have heard all about UBER and Lyft. They are taking the world by storm. UBER drivers simply pick up patrons on their own time, and drop them off wherever desired. For this task, you will earn roughly 80% of the total fare. You are like a cab driver without having to go through all the insurance and bonding red tape.
Do you have extra space in your condo or house? AirBNB is estimated to be worth billions right now, and there is a good reason why! You can rent out a room in your house, or your whole house, to a single person or an entire family. You act like a hotel without the employees and overhead. They will pay you an agreed upon rate for their stay. This is a great option if you are going out of town on vacation and need someone to stay at the house anyways!
