Today I wanted to share with you some great ways to make some extra money from your own home! Whoot!
We all know that money can be tight for those living in self-isolating, or that you are trying to find things to do to help pass the time during it. I wanted to find some ways that could not only benefit you in passing the time, but could very well bring you some extra money too.🤑 Let's get started!
1) Poshmark – This website is kind of like an online yard/garage sale for apparel. They allow you a way to sell new/used clothes, shoes and accessories.👕👚 You can sign up by email or facebook and follow the 3 steps to be a seller: List it, share it, and earn cash. Listing it is as simple as taking and uploading the photos to the website. Sharing it is just as easy, you take your listings and share it to your network for shoppers to discover. You can easily share it through Facebook as well and your other social media. And lastly, earning cash. Shipping is easy, due to their pre-paid label. You will receive the cash once the item has been delivered. You can use the website or download their app.
2) Etsy – This website allows you to sell pretty much anything you create homemade.🏡📦 From things like arts & crafts, apparel, jewelry, furniture, home décor, bags and toys. Some people are even selling things like handmade masks and hand sanitizers this way too. Also, etsy is a great place to sell even handmade quilts. Did you know that a queen sized quilt could sell for anywhere from $350-1,500 dollars?😮
To get started with being a seller for your own creations, start by signing up, like Poshmark you can also sign up using your Facebook account or Google account. Visit this link to learn about how to open your very own Etsy shop: www.etsy.com/sell?ref=for
3) Gift baskets🎀 – A fun idea you can do is design and sell gift baskets. You can sell them locally by putting up filters or even an ad in the newspaper, as well as sell them online by posting them on your social media pages. Here is some great “do it yourself gift baskets” ideas:
• Baked Goods🍪 – Who doesn't love a bake sale? This is a starter choice for a gift basket. Making baked items from cookies, brownies, truffles and other goodies to a basket that everyone with a sweet tooth can enjoy.
• Sauces and/or jams🍝🍓 – Sauces can be homemade sauces like marinara, bbq sauce, marinades (for meats), and ribs for grilling. For homemade jams and preserves, it’s always a favorite for families. Strawberries, Blackberries, Peach and Grape are some of the most popular choices.
• Bath and Bodyworks🛁🧼 – For this idea you can make your own shampoo, hand soaps, bath bombs, lotions, oils and other beauty products from your own home. There are many videos online that can teach you how you can make them yourself, then you can start changing up some ingredients and making your own kinds of fragrances.
• Toys🧸 – This is a great idea for kids. Make a toy themed gift basket. You can make your own handmade toys like plush toys, well-made toys, and plastic toys (using molds), also you can buy little toys from different companies to put together in a single basket to resell.
• Tools🛠 – This is a good one for men. You can include various tools such as a hammer, screwdrivers, wrenches and even measuring tape. Look around a hardware store to give you some inspiration for creating a handy gift basket such as this.
4) Teacher/Tutor/Instructor👨🏫 – This is a great and easy way to make money, you can offer leaching others how to do something. Think of things you are good at. For example, if you know how to play an instrument, draw/paint, cook, etc. You can even teach your own online classes, like yoga/workout classes, mechanic classes, and craft classes. If you have experience in teaching, you can contact the local school to see if they need any help with substituting online classes for students.
5) Virtual Assistant👩💻 – If you're organized and can handle doing office duties like replying to emails, managing calendars, events and other various tasks. This could be a great way to earn extra money. Virtual assistants can even make anywhere from $10 to $15 per hour or more!
Whatever your skills or talents are, there are so many ways to put them to use and make a profit from them. I got a little “Darcy's Daily Challenge” for you all. Take a moment to look over this and write down some of the things you are good at, then search online for jobs involving those things. You will see that people do make money from them. And this can be a way of earning your own income from them too!
