Earn extra money from your home!


Ever wondered if there was a way to earn money from home? We gathered some helpful tips with a little help from our friends at BrightNest to give you some pointers on how to get a little extra income.

1)    Have a garage sale. Turning your home into a temporary storefront is easy and liberating. Free up storage space and get rid of unwanted “junk” by clearing out your attic, basement and closets. Then sell! (Read our garage sale blogpost here)

2)    Rent out a room. Sites like Airbnb and Vacation Rentals by Owner make it easy for homeowners to rent out a room (or the whole house) to travelers. Turn that spare bedroom into a heap of cash, and meet some cool folks along the way.

3)    Rent out your storage space. You know those friends you have that live in a really cool loft apartment in the city? They don’t have anywhere to store their stuff! Ask around – chances are some of your apartment-dwelling friends have a car or some sports equipment they need to store.

4)    Host parties and sell goods. Whether you’re raising money for a good cause or encouraging a friend’s new business, there’s always a reason to throw a party and sell some stuff. Plus, everyone loves a party!
