Today I thought I would steer a little bit away from the saving money aspect of my site, and point you in the direction of earning money. Rather than send you to some scam website about how to make money online, I am going to talk about what you can do around the house that will help you earn back a little bit of money.
1. Sell some of that junk. Everyone has junk in their house that they are no longer using, and believe it or not, you don't just have to throw it out or donate it. Ebay is a great place for you to get rid of some of your old items that you don't want any more. Provided they are in fairly good condition, and you follow the ebay rules, selling items on ebay is a piece of cake. Simply take a couple of photos, write a short description, and wait for the buyers.
If you are not particularly ebay savvy, or you would rather not go down that path, then a garage sale is the next best thing. Put up signs around your neighbourhood, and put an ad in the local paper, and you will have plenty of people who show up for a bargain.
2. If you have old mobile phones sitting in a drawer, then you should consider selling these to companies that purchase old phones. Websites such as mazuma mobile (for australia) purchase your old phones, where they then recycle them or re sell them. If you want to visit mazuma, you can click here.
3. Why not consider participating in the local markets, and selling something that you create? A good example of this are craft/scrap booking products. If you have spare time, and a hobby such as knitting or craft or even woodworking, then this may benefit you.
Hopefully these tips have been helpful, and I know they aren't exactly about saving money, but I thought it would be a good idea to share them.
