How to Earn Extra Cash to Pay off Your Holiday Splurges ...


The holidays are behind us and you’re probably starting to get your credit card bills and along with them the massive regret that you spent too much money.

Well, there’s not a lot you can do about it now.

The thing to do is figure out how you’re going to pay for all that stuff you bought for your loved ones and yourself.

Try one of these tricks to raise that extra cash and then resolve to not go crazy next year.

1. Sell Some Stuff on EBay or Craigslist

You just got a ton of new gifts and chances are if you take a hard look at what you already have, you’ll find some stuff you don’t need anymore.

If it’s worth something, you can raise extra dough by selling it online.

You might be surprised at the value of things you have that you don’t want or don’t use anymore.

2. Get a Part-Time Gig

Many companies lose some of their holiday staff once things return to normal.

That often means they have openings.

Consider putting in a couple of nights at the bookstore or helping people shop at Macy’s and you can put that paycheck toward paying off your holiday bills.

You can do this short-term until you catch up, but if you like it, stick with it and use the money to pad your nest egg.

3. Cash in on Your Hobby

Do you love knitting or scrapbooking?

People are often willing to pay big for those skills.2

If you get loads of compliments on your handmade scarves, think about how much you’d charge for them.

Sell them on Etsy and put the money you raise toward paying down those nasty credit card bills.

Who knew you could make money doing something you love?

4. Teach Online Courses

Do you have a specific degree or field of study?2

Many online colleges pay people to “teach” their classes.2

The work usually involves mediating online discussions and grading online assignments.

This is a fairly easy way to earn some extra money if you have the qualifications.
