Picking up a side hustle is one method to make extra money, but there are easier ways. Here are a few ideas to try:
Sell Unused Items
One of the most popular ways is to go through your jewelry box and sell your gold Springfield MA jewelry you no longer wear. This sale alone may give you all the extra cash you need.
Next, declutter your home and set aside any unused items in good condition. Knock the dust off of that bread maker, rice cooker, blender or wine refrigerator and turn it into cash by selling it at a garage sale or through an online app.
Cancel Unused Subscriptions
Do you still watch all of the streaming services you’ve subscribed to? Chances are you don’t, but you are still paying the monthly fee. Analyze your viewing habits and cancel those subscriptions you aren’t using anymore.
Stop In-App Game Purchases
If you love playing games on your smartphone, you’ve probably made several in-app purchases to help you solve a puzzle or win the game. After all, the price is so low you figure it won’t make a dent in your monthly spending. But, all those little purchases add up, and before you know it you’ve spent way more than you intended. The next time you’re tempted to buy, check Google for free help on how to win the game instead.
Change Your Grocery Shopping Routine
