When You Need Money Right Now
We have all — at some point in our lives — run into financial trouble and needed money yesterday. It is scary and stressful, but there are some things that you can do to come up with some money right away. It's not always easy, but if you are determined to get of a financial rut, then try some of these ways to make quick cash.
Have a Yard Sale
Now, you may be thinking that it's hard work to just "throw together" a yard sale at the last minute, but it doesn't have to be. For quick cash, instead of labeling items individually (which could take days), designate tables for certain prices. For example, have one table with just clothes and hang a sign that reads, "Everything on this table is $1/piece" and so on. This will cut down on prep time and get your sale up and running quickly!
Advertise on Craigslist, Ebay, and Your Local Newspaper
If you have some big ticket items that you can part with for the sake of your financial well-being, list ads all over the internet and throughout your town. List your items as "Local Pickup Only" and this will eliminate shipping costs, as well. You will be surprised how fast you can make some quick money by doing this!
Share Your Talents With Others
If you are good at baking, cleaning, or anything else, consider advertising your services for awhile until you get back on your feet. You can help the elderly with their grocery shopping, walk people's dogs, do some interior painting, etc. Hang fliers throughout your town at grocery stores, drug stores, post offices, libraries, and anywhere else you can think of. You won't believe how many calls you get that could end-up putting cash in your pocket today!
